Geoff Irwin

11 posts in this topic

At the end of last night's game between UND and MSU-M Maverick player Geoff Irwin broke his carbon fiber stick slashing Darcy Zajac. In reviewing the replay WDAZ/Channel 23 did not catch the slash on film you can hear the stick being broken over Zajac on the tape. This is straight out of the federal league on slap shot and is utter bravo sierra. There is no room for that type of a reaction in ANY LEAGUE this is totally unacceptable, this wasn't a bow tie cross check this was a full swing tomahawk chop with a hockey stick. If that was the NHL it would be a minimum of two games. Lucky for Irwin the linesman Nate Freeman was able to rescue him before Zajac could exact his pound of flesh. (Goonsworld)

Do you think the WCHA will give him a suspension? Glad to see UND get 4 points this weekend. Saturday nights game could have easily went the other way.

I'll tell you what I sure hope the Sioux player who broke his leg on Saturday can make a full recovery. That was as bad as it gets. Joe Theisman comes to mind bad!

Trevor Brues of Mankato is dangerous to say the least.

I just read in the paper that the player (derrick Lapoint)that broke his ankle is out for the rest of the season. It sounds like they are pretty optimistic that he'll be back next season.

I don't think that Trevor Brues did anything that cause that injury. I'm surprise he didn't get game misconduct the night before when he hit Jason Gregorie from behind.

He definitley should/could have let up on that play IMO.

You have to give the Sioux credit for not losing focus and getting the W instead paying Trevor back for another hack-cheap series out of him!

Go Sioux!

I don't think there's any chance LaPoint plays College hockey next year...

This was as bad as gets as far as broken legs go!

Trevor Brues did get a suspension for a game. The suspension was for "recent in game incidents the league feels are detrimental to the game". His suspension will be against Neb-Omaha. It should be served in a game against a WCHA team.

Finally, somebody that stands up to UND and plays the way they do! UND is constantly hitting after the whistle, slashing away from the play, and always in somebody's face talking [PoorWordUsage]. Zajac is just carrying on a tradition started many years ago (Bochenski would hit his mother in the back if he ever go the chance- dirtiest player I have seen in the last 15 years!)

UND has had some goons just like any other team but Brandon Bochenski was not one of them. You may have him mix up with Mike Prpich or Radke.

UND may seem cheap to some but IMHO they are just one of the more psyhical teams in college hockey.Maybe its because they get alot of players from Canada that bring a more psyhical type of hockey than we are use to seeing.They don't hit after the whistle or slash away from the puck more than anybody else.

Hey fasternu, you forgot Keith Ballerd. Oh yeah thats right he played for MN. I'm sure you didn't see his cheap play because your eyes were fogged over. Get a clue!!

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
