They don't have the blue-collar edge you need to win in hockey.
      There was a GREAT article about that. I'm not sure if this is the one, but it hits the mark: http://www.citypages.com/news/how-do...asty/477582963

      This is what I feel is the crux of the issue with MN:

      "It wasn’t that Lucia had forgotten how to coach. It’s that he’d forgotten what constitutes a good hockey team. He’d increasingly turned to recruiting younger and younger players, getting commitments from 15- and 16-year-old child prodigies who shined in box scores. Last fall he plunged ever lower, getting commitments from Cruz and Chaz Lucius, ages 13 and 14, from Gentry Academy in Vadnais Heights.
      Loading up on pubescent phenoms was akin to building a football team with only quarterbacks and receivers. The firepower looks dazzling paper, until you realize no one wants to block or stuff the run. The results were predictable.
      Tune in this year, and you would bear witness to a collection of child stars unable and unwilling to subvert their ego for the aggregate good. When you’ve been told you’re the greatest since elementary age, there’s a tendency to see the yeoman’s part of your job as beneath you."

      UND playing Western Michigan this weekend in Kalamazoo, Mich. 0-0 after 2. UND played well in first period, but took 6 penalties (5 WMU PP) in the second, so Adam School really kept them in the game. WMU winning face-offs 28-16. Unusual for UND to be behind in that stat.

      fixed it for ya!! Yea! Scheel is playing like a stud so far this year.

      0-0 7:54 left in the third. Figured they'd be a good test for UND this weekend. Go Sioux!!

      Gavin Hain gets the OT win for the Sioux. Unbeaten in the last 12 games!!

      Tomorrow is a different story. It's our annual Lutefisk dinner at the Nordhal in Los Gatos and we will have chard but will miss periods 2 and 3 of the game! I'll try to catch updates on cell phone.

      Sioux up early 3-0 midway through period 1 tonight against Western MI in Kalamazoo.

      AT 3:15 Left to go in period 1, glass was broken and needed replacement. They agreed to let that be the end of the first period then. Would play the 3:15 after the glass was fixed and then take a minute break and go right into the 2nd period. Never have been a part of that or seen it. Still 3-0 18:00 left in the second.

      15:06 left in the third. 5-1 UND.

      Game ends with a final score of 8-2. SWEEP

      UND 3-6 in PP

      Scheel (and UND) 14-1-2

      UND leads the NCHC by 4 points over MN Duluth Bulldogs.

      Special team it looks like this year. UND"s lone loss and one tie against #1 Minn. State Mankato. One other tie against #4 Denver.

      Break until they play the U 18 team Dec. 28.
