    Re: CF Mailbag: 2-25

    Going to have to disagree on the Juco question...Mac is taking the best player available.

    Phillips was signed before the season even started...Other than that, we are recruiting a couple juco guys, but as of now, it's one. Can't really draw a conclusion from that.

    Isn't part of McDermott's problem that he has taken the "best player available.?" Guys like Clinton Mann, Clayton Vette, Marcus Brister, Corey McIntosh, Pomlee.......list continues. At some point, wouldn't he be (or have been) better off holding onto scholarship(s) and trying to get someone better in the next class? In other words, sacrifice the present for the future? Maybe he feels it is too late for that now, not sure.

    Re: CF Mailbag: 2-25

    i disagree on the hockey comment. If the USA beats the Fins tomorrow and Canada beats Slovakia, the USA/Canada rematch will be huge for the NHL. This is exactly what the NHL needs, even if the commish is too dumb to realize it.

    aside from that, good mailbag this week. And great question st8.

    Re: CF Mailbag: 2-25

    You give a good sales pitch as to why the team will be better, but I simply can't swallow that losing our two best players, two guys with NBA talent, will lead us to anywhere but more losses.

    Yea, your attitude towards hockey is a bit ridonk. But then again coming from you I should have expected it.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I know. It is tough to be very positive looking ahead. I fully understand that. I was just trying to answer the question as completely as possible.

    I'll watch the remaining 2 USA hockey games with unbridled enthusiasm. I will then promptly go back to not caring a lick about the NHL.
