The games may have stopped but talking about them -- and the athletes who play them -- never stops. So we put out a call for your questions, and our writers got to work with their answers.

Here are the mailbags from our writers who follow Gophers sports and college hockey.

Later today look for mailbags on high school sports, the outdoors and golf. And there will be another batch, focusing on Minnesota's pro teams, next week.

Thanks for the questions and thanks for reading.
