Goon’s World Site Changes

I am please to announce that a brand new commenting system that has installed on Goon's World. I think the transition will be a smooth one. A while ago, I inadvertently deactivated the Intense Debate commenting system that I had on the blog for some time. That being said, I was not happy with the blogger commenting system. So,  LiveFyre is now installed and you "should" be able to log in with a Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or with a LiveFyre log in.  Don't worry, I will still be able to moderate comments and ban trolls.

T.J. Oshie does his best pretzel imitation

This was on T.J. Oshie's Twitter feed and I am not sure what happened here. The former UND forward is having a pretty good season and has scored (2g-10a—12pts) in 15 games.

Sunday Evening Post: Interesting comment on Hakstol

I found this comment on Brad's blog tonight. I think it's an interesting comment, but it also brings up a topic for debate. Of course, there's nothing else to talk about right now, during the off-season.

Recently, back in June I was on 1310 with Jarrod Thomas and we were discussing Dave Hakstol's tenure at UND and how some are getting restless and with the head coach and how you see quips like this every once in a while on the various blogs around the internet.

As most of you know, I am a fan of Hak and I think that he's worth that they're paying him, but I do think It’s fair to question his salary. He’s a public figure.

In the last year or so, there seems to be more and more angst and antipathy popping on the internet message boards and blogs. Often I get comments on blog and I see a few on other places as well. Frankly, if UND didn't pay him, he'd get snatched up by someone else, top-flight coaches don't come cheap.

ESPN vs. the Sharks on Twitter

Check out this exchange on Twitter... I couldn't agree more, show more hockey highlights on ESPN. How about show some hockey. I rarely if ever watch ESPN, unless it's for the NCAA Hockey playoffs, NFL Football, or for an occasional FCS football game. That's it.

Tyler Seguin's Tweet caused by hacker?

Last night, former Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin sent out this tweet on twitter and apparently it caused a major storm for the newly acquired Dallas Stars forward. Seguin has since deleted/deactivated his twitter account. Seguins claims that his twitter account was hacked. The Dallas Stars have also responded to Seguin's tweets as well. The Dallas Stars are set to introduce Seguin on Tuesday at 11:00 A.M. Central.

The Wild make some Wild moves (RW77) - UPDATED

Alternate logo since 2000.

Free Agency has started and with it comes some interesting moves.

First, the Wild traded away Devon Setoguchi for a 2nd round pick, but that's a "who cares" kindof trade.  The big news?


Matt Cooke, more famous for ending careers than winning games, signed a 3 year contract with the Minnesota Wild.

Ok, the upside to this:  Matt Cooke is a big hitting forward that is an obvious replacement of Cal Clutterbuck.  He has been on winning teams in the past.  He can score goals on occasion.  He was nominated for the Masterton and lost to current Wild Josh Harding.

The downside?  This is a player that is almost universally reviled.  I say almost because the Pens fans still defend him for the same reason, invariably, that Wild fans will inevitably defend him:  He's on your team.  Another downside?  He's one blindside Savard-esque hit from being McSorley'd.  This guy skates on thin ice everywhere he goes.

CORRECTION:  3 years $7.5 million contract or $2.5 million a year.  THAT, my friends, is OVERPAYING worse than Stalberg's new contract.

He did have a decent year last year blocking shots but then again, someone had to because Marc Andre Sievry couldn't.

Trust me when I say it:  This was a BAD idea.  If the Wild really did want Cooke's services, they should have gone for a 1 year contract with a club option (if that's possible) for a second year.  He may have only had 36 PIM in 48 games last season, but he's still one of the most if not the most dangerous skater in the NHL and that's saying something (as a Red Wings fan who couldn't defend the Wings' signing Bertuzzi).

Chad Graff (@ChadGraff) on Twitter said it best:  The Wild traded 1 year contract of Devon Setoguchi for 1 2nd round pick and 3 years of Matt Cooke.

Be Proud Minnesota.

A few of the deleted tweets from the Kings Twitter Feed

Here are a few of the tweets that were deleted from the L.A. Kings Twitter that were posted by account by @thekevinryder You have to wonder what the L.A. Kings were thinking when they let a Disc Jockey from a local radio station in L.A. do tweets for a period. The L.A. Kings are a first class organization. Here is the link to the radio station and it says, "Tonight, Kevin will also take over the Kings’ official twitter account for the 2nd period of the game."

Don Cherry and Coach's Corner

Tonight, Don Cherry from the Coach's Corner blew up the twitter world, when he discussed the subject of female reporters being in the dressing room. Personally, I don't have a problem with female reporters being in the dressing room after NHL hockey games, they have been there for a long time, already. I don't see what the problem is, nor should there be a problem, since the players are already dressed when they meet with the media after the game.

This removes any doubt; Brown's dirty elbow on Pominville

s/t to Michael Russo... In case anyone is confused, this was a text book hit to the head and a violation of rule 48. Jason Pominville's head is targeted by Dustin Brown.

48.1 Illegal Check to the Head – A hit resulting in contact with an opponent's head where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact is not permitted. However, in determining whether such a hit should have been permitted, the circumstances of the hit, including whether the opponent put himself in a vulnerable position immediately prior to or simultaneously with the hit or the head contact on an otherwise legal body check was avoidable, can be considered.

One step back, before we move forward (UND vs. UMN)

Goldy Gopher, University of Minnesota-Twin Cit...

This is the big story that is making it’s way around Twitter this afternoon. From the looks of it, Minnesota Gophers beat writer Roman Augustoviz must have listened to Gophers head coach Don Lucia on WCCO radio last night. So, after a great weekend of hockey and after being asked about the rivalry probably hundreds of times, I guess he’s tired of being asked about the rivalry.
Roman Empire — Gophers coach Don Lucia used his weekly radio show on Monday to defend himself from critics complaining that North Dakota won’t be on the U’s schedule the next three seasons.
“We have a rule at the University of Minnesota — not put in by me — but by the regents that we can not play a team with an Indian nickname,” Lucia said. “And for years, this controversy with North Dakota and the nickname has been going on. And it has been fought in the courts and everything else.
“And it did not get settled until this summer. Well — if you want to put the blame on me for not waiting to find out whether it was going to get settled or not, then so be it. I can accept that fact.
“I wasn’t going to wait. When the conferences all broke up a couple of years ago. And we were heading into all these new conferences, it was kind of a frenzy and free-for-all for scheduling nonconference games. And when we had the opportunity to schedule some good opponents — I could have waited, but I chose not to wait. But I wanted to ensure we had a good schedule for our fans and our team.”
Whether you believe their company line or not, that’s up to you. It is what it is. This is what the Gophers head coach is saying, and he’s sticking to it. Hey whatever, we could discuss this till we are blue in the face if we want, but Lucia isn’t giving in. That being said, I can tell you that many in the UND fan-base are cynical. If you read some of the newspaper articles and hockey sites from this past weekend, you will see that not everyone was buying into this either. [click to view] and [click to view]
But I digress.
I have to admit that I am sad that this past weekend was the last regular season conference match-up between the two teams, maybe for some time. Such is life. Life is full of disappointments. I do think some fans are a bit delusional if they think that they can just replace the historic UND vs. UMN series with another random series against another hockey team and get the same intensity that this historic series has.
While there are currently no future games scheduled between the two teams, at least in the immediate future, there’s a very good chance that the two teams could meet again in the NCAA Playoffs. History tells us that there is a very good chance the two teams will see each other again, probably in the next year or two. Both teams have a history, and have met three times in the last eight years in the NCAA tourney, with UND holding a 2-1 edge.
It’s also a shame that a once great hockey conference is going to be a shell of it’s former self starting next season, but that is really something we can no longer control as well. These types of decisions are made by the folks that are paid big money to make these kinds of decisions, and they don’t always do what the fans want.
Finally, I also think that the players are going to miss this historic series as well. If  you don’t believe me, all you have to do is look at the comments from Gopher forward Nate Condon who was named WCHA Offensive Player of the week after he had a five point (2g-3a—5pts) weekend against UND.
I guess for now, the series will have to wait, and all we can do is hope that cooler heads prevail. I think eventually the rivalry will resume play, sooner rather than later.

Fabian's "Movember" contribution

Check out this stache by former UND forward and current UND women's assistant hockey coach Erik Fabian. I think Erik should grow the Fu Manchu mustache. Everytime I see Erik Fabian standing behind the UND women's bench I think of the song "Fabian" by Red Seal Peach.
