I found this video of William Wrenn getting beat down in front of the opposing bench in a game with the Portland Winterhawks. There are two fights in the video, his is the second one. Thought some Pioneer fans might enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt69-0oucNw

It still OK to slam, slander or insult me.

Thanks DG, I for one am getting tired of the vitriol from anon posters.

I respect Puck Swamin's insight into the sport, and he is dead on most of the time.

I can do without the foul mouthed trash talk.

Good move on the Swami front. Obviously there are a few jackasses out here who like to stir the pot and make dumb comments about Swami.

I agree! To heck with these anonymous weasels and jack*****! Gas them all!

If "spot on" means saying we suck all the time and apologizing for winning then "spot on" he is.

SInce when this joint get all G-Rated and sh**? What's next a daffodil-themed backdrop? Where's the 'edge'? I thought this a "If You Can't Stand the Heat, Get the Eff Out" type of blog?

Chancellor Coombe made a PC decision based on a few whiners. DG did same thing here.

Can't believe DG caved. CAVED!!! Swami has thick skin doesn't he? Maybe not. But, nonetheless, I'm disappointed in the solution. Part of the appeal of this blog is that people can post what they want. Please rethink this here solution DG.

I thought this blog was about hockey or something?

dggoddard said...

It used to be about DU hockey.

Charlie Sheen said it best...

"I'm so tired of pretending DU hockey isn't just perfect with our team winning every weekend, and we're not just perfect and bitching and just delivering the goods at every frickin' turn. Look what I'm dealing with, man. I'm dealing with fools and trolls. I'm dealing with soft targets, and it's just strafing runs in my underwear before my first cup of coffee ... they watch their ugly teams in their ugly uniforms and just look at their loser lives and then they look at DU and say, 'I can't process it.' Well, no, and you never will! Stop trying! Just sit back and enjoy LetsGoDU, the best college hockey blog on the planet."

You DU alumni have spent your entire life having people tell you how great you are. Now someone kicks you around a little bit and you can't take it. Grow the "f" up. Back off on the smug attitudes and people will be respectful.

Do you really think that telling us smugness pisses you off, will cause us to be more humble?

Good luck with that.

On another note, I heard yesterday morning on 850KOA radio that Denver was named #10 by Sports Magazine on thier list of the most miserable sports cities in America. ??? And what really pissed me off, is that the radio hosts were all in agreement... saying the Avs suck, the Broncos are at rock bottom, the Rockies suck, and of course Carmello left so the Nuggies suck (I'm just quoting the radio hosts, people).... and NOT ONE FRICKING MENTION about the great Denver Pioneer Hockey team. I was so angry. If I could have reached my cell phone while driving, I would have called in to ask WTF they're talking about - and why they don't mention DU Hockey. The mainstream sports fans in this state are so out of touch.

Puck swamI said...

While I am more than happy to take well reasoned criticism from anyone, I respect DG's decision. This is a DU blog, and discussion should be about that first and foremost. DG was also right that the discussion wasn't going anywhere.

I am always happy to engage on substative DU opinion, but I am no good at smack talk or outright insults. So if you go that route with me, you won't get much back.

OK, I'll save swami the trouble:

SCSU is such a solid team that they are so much better than their record, while DU has so many holes that it is incomprehensible that this team is in 2nd place. The prediction is that DU will be lucky to escape with a point and if, by chance, DU manages a win an apology to the SCSU fans is in order since a crap team like DU should do nothing else but get kicked by SCSU.

Yes, that should just about sum it up

dggoddard said...

DU Pregame Check List:

1). Listen to Charlie Sheen motivational speaker CD.

2). Score first goal of the game

3). Don't give up any shorthanded goals

4). Pass the puck to Zucker every time

5). Clear space for Makowski's 190' bombs

6). Use Hulk Hogan "Hand to the Ear" goal celebration after scoring

7). During TV interviews with Alana Rizzo make at least two Boone references

Anonymous said...

8). Ignore all internet postings from certain fans that the team sucks and is finished.

Pick swami said...

I was impressed by DUs rebound on Saturday at Omaha. Getting Ostrow back is big too, and I think DU will take 3 points this weekend against an improved SCSU team.

Twister said...

Hard to believe this is the last weekend of the regular season. DU needs to send the seniors out in style, play hard for 120 minutes this weekend, and hopefully get a good start for a change and get the crowds engaged.

On another note, there's an interesting article on the WCH blog on former Pioneer William Wrenn and his success in the WHL.

I think there is a plot by the band to make this blog more PC. They want to stop certain people from making negative comments about the team and the those that support them.

Hulk Hogan Hand To The Ear really? That’s the best you could come up with? There is so much material to work with and THAT’s what you chose?

When Hulk Hogan joined DX they had a very simple phrase that would work ever so much better. It sounds really familiar. It would go something like this: If you don’t think DU is going to win - if you talk smack about our players or our team – “we got two words for you, Suck It!”

Anyone want to explain to me again why Donovan is so great? He got burned on the GWG and is -3 over the past 6 weeks or so. He's directly responsible for at least 2 of the 4 shorties we gave up the past 2 weekends.

Why is he still playing in key situations? Why do we still go with 4 f's and 1 d on the PP? It hasn't really produced anything at all except shorties.

9 out of 10 games we give up the 1st goal. 4 out of 5 weekends we lose on Friday. I'm very pessimistic about the next few weekends, and no I'm not Swami or pessimistic fan.

Anonymous said...

This team is fading.....that's the unfortunate reality.

Anonymous said...

Another disappointing turnout by the Students. No Boone either. Donovan was sloppy and at times Brittain looked like he was looking for Waldo in the stands. (should have been easy because there were plenty of open seats). The games that we've lost in the past weeks definitely would make Murray Armstrong roll over.

Motivation Points:
Being Shellacked by CC in November
Jesse Martin
The Chief Passing
Multiple "one and done" Tourney appearances

Denver Pioneers are not strong on the puck - end of story. The way these guys are playing, only possible thing that's going to get them into next month.. is Goaltending.. end of story. Sad but true. This level of play won't cut it for the one and done post season... I'm only stating fact. What Canadian team do we host in October??? I'm just sayin'......

Lee did swipe that puck in underneath his foot, but Anderson blew the whistle and wouldn't look at it. The guy is such a coward, yet is too prideful for his own good. He's extremely unprofessional. How is it interference on Nutini if the puck is at their feet? Plus the inadvertent whistle for "too many men" coming from they guy that was on the far side was not a good move by Shepherd. Not a good officiating night.

Jordan said...

That being said, they didn't decide the game.

Also, DU will assuredly win tonight. It's senior night, so Jesse Martin will be on the ice again. We're 2-0 so far when he makes an appearance.

Look. You win some and you lose some. The point is to win many more than you lose and position yourself for the highest seed possible for the tourney and take it from there. That's what Gwoz and this team has done so far. If they're cut out to go far, then they will; If they aren't then they won't. End of story. A utopic garden of babylon will not sprout on campus if they go all the way and a giant sinkhole will not swallow the campus if they don't. Life will go on no matter what.
