so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Berenson: Merrill cracked his vertebrae last night. Guesses it'll be weeks.

Bad! #blameCanada RT @Spath_Wolverine: Just showed up at Yost and Jon Merrill is in a neck brace watching practice from the stands.
I thought people last night were saying it was a pretty clear shot from behind.
It was a semi dirty hit. It was defently from behind but it look more like a hustle play. I dont think the Windsor player ment for him to crash into the boards.
It sucks losing him over an exhibition game but it would be even worse off a cheap shot. Also, there really should be a better way to get games on TV out of state. I'd gladly pay Comcast or FSD for a Michigan Hockey package.
Ditto, I wish the university could just commit to live-streaming everything that wasn't on the B1G. I'd sit through whatever silly commercials Brandon would want to sell for the ad-space.
FWIW Red has said he thought it was a clean hit

It's a good thing that Connor Carrick carefully weighed the OHL's contention that he wouldn't receive regular playing time against Michigan's recent history of losing important defensemen to injury/illness/suspension (Mitera, Kampfer, Burlon, Merrill) and said, "Of course I'll be an important contributor!"
Do any of the forwards jump out as potential defenseman? Looks like things are going to be pretty thin on the back end again this year.
Edit: I forgot about Mike Szuma, so at least there are still 7 warm bodies back there. Hopefully Serville and Chiasson had productive offseasons.
As big of a loss as he is the defensive pairings of Trouba/Moffat Bennett/ Chiasson could still be considered one of the best defensive groups in the ccha. our third line however not so much
I'm sure you mean Moffie, not Moffat. And now I lock in the mistake.
Serville/Clare will be the third line if the first two pairings end up as you say, and Szuma the freshman will be the 7th D-man.

Sucks, but hopefully it keeps him a little bit fresher for the meat of the CCHA season (like last year) and we can go on another January-March run (like last year). His absence will get the younger guys more minutes early on this year, which is good for their development.
Also, I was at the game, and it was scary. We saw his head snap back immediately, and he almost fell over after he got back up to his feet. Looked like concussion, assuming that's not a factor, the broken vertebrae could almost be considered lucky.
Get well soon and get back on the ice, Jon!
My bad i meant moffie. initially i did not think the collision was that bad until i saw him get up and he could barely skate stright. I agree it was very scary.
Ugh... that's going to be a problem I think. Guess some of the younger guys will have to step up... expectation for the position and other coach talk what not.

Neck injuries are always scary if they don't heal properly and can cause issues later on. I had bad cross check to the back of the neck and it was bruised during a high school hockey tournament game in Columbus IN. It took a while to heal up. Just having a pillow under my head was uncomfortable and hurt like hell. Hope he recovers well. He's a big playmaker for us.
We hate Michigan State. We don't like Penn State too. We don't care for Minnesota, Wisconsin or Notre Dame but we all hate O-S-U.

He stuck it out last year through his suspension and was coming in to this year presumably glad to be back 100% of the time and then this happens in the first real game. Crappy
I hope that asshole from Windsor gets his ass kicked in their games. Jamming someone into the boards, in the neck area is bullshit.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
HUGE blow, and I'm not sure how comfortable I feel with this possible Clare/Trouba pairing. At least, that's what I heard. Trouba/Moffie sounds like a lot better balance of offense/defense.
