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!!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
