The Gophers have five players turn pro after losing to 15th seeded Yale ... hmmm ... do you think the team just might have underachieved this year? Granted, they tied for the regular season crown ... but you play to win national championships ... do you think the coaching might have been to blame?

watching the Gopher Hockey team the past couple seems to me that they rarely played as a team, except on powers plays. They much more played as individuals. Also, Bjugstad did not play hard. He will learn quickly in the pros that he won't get away with that.

questionable move by Alt even if the money looks good at the moment

This year's team wasn't able to go on any sort of winning streak and lost too many games that they supposedly should have won. It was obvious they weren't going to do well in the post-season. With a team loaded with really good players, why was this? It's the same every year! The main problem with this team is the coaching ... they need a new coach. I don't know when they will figure that out.

The NHL wants them out of The Don's system so they can develop as players. Nuff said.

In some ways, this is a commentary on the skill dilution of professional hockey. Way too many teams in the NHL playing below the top level, and so on down the line. It isn't that these guys underachieved in college, its that minor league hockey is not really a step-up.

romperroom, how is this a questionable move for Mark Alt? He is getting paid to play hockey, which apparently was his goal.
