    Just gotta hope that Motzko has a plan and his recruits will right this ship.

    MN is a tough job...
    No facilities
    Very limited local talent base
    Tough recruiting sell
    No tradition
    Fan apathy
    Kids want to play at warm weather school

    Remember this is basically an awful Lucia team from last year that lost its best forward and best defenseman.

    The bright spots on the team are almost all freshmen who had no influence from old regime. Next year could be rough again, or it could be okay, but expect a much much better team in two seasons with a little over two Motzko classes on the roster.

    I have no idea about hockey recruiting. Are the Gophers still pretty much cherry picking the best players in the state/region? Is the switch to the Big Ten having some negative consequences? A lot of our natural rivalries are in the NCHC (and the WCHA to a lesser extent)....so are top players choosing SCSU and UMD over the Gophers?

    No No and No. Recruiting has changed (most players do juniors for a couple years) and you have to identify them early. Motzko will do fine, he just needs time. Like a couple years. But we do have a lot of advantages here, so getting who he wants won't be the problem.
