First off I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. This is the season to watch college hockey and Christmas tourneys. Then get ready for the second half push. This is where teams cement their place in the NCAA field or tumble out of the RPI/PWR. I must say that this is a very exciting time of the year. May all your Christmas wishes comes true.
All I want for Christmas is…
1.)Refs that can call the college game like the NHL officials. A penalty in the first period should also be a penalty in the third or overtime.
2.)The shootout to be standard in all regular season, conference and non-conference games in Division one college hockey. Ties are like kissing your sister.
3.)My Fighting Sioux to finally win a WCHA regular season title again.
4.)The WCHA to fire league commissioner Bruce M. McLeod, head of officials Greg Shepherd. While we are at it how about on ice officials Don Adam and Derrick Shepherd.
5.)The NCAA to use more than one angle when reviewing goals on replay.
6.)The Wisconsin Badgers, Minnesota Gophers and the Michigan Wolverines to go 0 for the season.
7.)For the NCAA Ice Hockey selection committee to adopt the KRACH when selecting the NCAA Field.
8.)The MTU Huskies make the Final Five as long as it isn’t at the expense of the Sioux.
9.) Public announcements when a NCAA on ice official is a disciplined or suspended.
10.) More NCAA hockey games to be on television like the NHL.
