  1. You’re a clown. I agree that Higgs deserved it over Carey, unlike what the ECAC selected, however not giving Carey Honorable Mention for a hattie (natural, no less) is an absolute joke. It’s quite obvious that you feel about the same for St. Lawrence as you do for UND, as you made quite clear Friday night in quite a professional manner. USCHO should be embarrassed for your 7 year old temper tantrum Friday when you couldn’t resist the temptation to take a jab at UND and not do so in a professional manner.

  2. Please don’t dignify your poll by lumping it in with USCHO, Media, Inch etc.
    Those polls are unscientific. Your poll is unfathomable

  3. Enough already. Fire Rolle. Clarkson should bring Craig Conroy home and hire him. He’s at the end of his NHL career and this would be the perfect move.

    -rob class of ’93

  4. Rob, I kind of expected this to happen with such a young team that Roll has this year (BTW, please spell his name correctly, it is NOT Rolle). 9 of the kids are freshmen this year. Give them a bit of time to gel on the PP, and they should be lethal

  5. A lot of mistakes in this article. UNO’s overall record of 8-1-1 and mentioning Seth Ambroz instead of Matt Ambroz (Seth is still in the USHL) too note a few.

  6. Dear
    Mr. Pletsch and Mr. Piotrowski – Please review the game film from the Friday
    1/13/2012 ND vs. WMU game for an incident that occurred at 14:39 of the 2nd
    period. A 5 min major penalty – blow to the head – was called againsDear Mr.
    Pletsch and Mr. Piotrowski – Please review the game film from the Friday 1/13/2012
    ND vs. WMU game for an incident that occurred at 14:39 of the 2nd period. A 5
    min major penalty – blow to the head – was called against the wrong player. #11
    Jeff Costello was mistakenly called and removed from the game while the player
    who committed the infraction played the balance of the game (#4 Riley Sheahan).
    The player who was hit illegally was #23 Dane Walters. He was injured from the
    hit and was not able to play the remainder of the game and also missed the
    following nights game. In my opinion, a 2 game suspension for Riley Sheahan
    would be sufficient.
