    While I’m still not too happy about the Big Ten hockey conference, I am so excited for Gopher season!

      Strange…It’s almost as if NBC owns this website and is trying to promote some sort of hockey program on one of their television networks.

      They, NBC, were consistent with providing us hockey fans NCAA hockey both on PHT and NBCSN last year. College hockey has become a bigger and better feeder of the NHL so it only makes sense to follow the collegiate game. I enjoy watching college hockey and appreciate NBC taking interest in it too. One should be thankful that there is place that brings you all things hockey related. I may not always agree with how the content is presented or the writer’s POV, but it’s a place to promote ice hockey. You don’t have many networks/sites doing that here in the States.
