My guess is that nobody will knock us out of the top spot for at least several weeks
The class next year will be good.I am thinking about the large class of 2021 recruits. We have 5 current seniors on this years team. 3 good forwards including leading scorer Scott Reedy , a backup defenseman in Rossini, and starting goalie Lafountaine. What recruits will be coming in next year, and which ones will be staying in the USHL? Will we be losing any underclassmen to the pros? Is Jared Moe the starting goalie next season? Looking for some in-the-know information
You're right, but I see the new transfer rules being favorable for us going forward.To summarize, this year and next year would be "the years" to try to win a championship. This year if there is a tournament it will be very hard to get past UND and UMD. Next year depending on who comes back might be the best chance. Going into 22-23 I think they will have lost a ton of talent to the pros.
No. He left too early. It was obvious. He did not dominate college hockey until the last couple weekends of the year.Speaking of the Mittelstadt's, is Casey relevant in the NHL? Haven't really heard of him much.
he's a classic guy who had a bunch of high end offensive talent that was never required to play defense. He is horrendous defensively from a positioning standpoint and his +/- reflects that. I agree completely that another year in the college game to work on his 2 way skills would've been idealNo. He left too early. It was obvious. He did not dominate college hockey until the last couple weekends of the year.
He could have been a superstar in college. Now it's possible he never becomes a full time NHLer. There is still hope but this year is make or break.
Agreed you probably have to go back to Leipold/Ballard/Martin etc. to find this level of depth on the blue line.Even if Canada kills the USA tonight, I can't wait to get the D back for wisconsin. I'm having a hard time remembering a better d pair than Johnson and Faber for the Gophers. Skjei and Reilly were never really a pair.
Dang that's beautiful
Yeah but then you’d have to include Matt DeMarchi. It certainly could be cloudy history, but he was by far my least favorite player of that era. I recall being amazed that we could win the 2002 championship playing on the PK so often with all the stupid lazy penalties he took.Agreed you probably have to go back to Leipold/Ballard/Martin etc. to find this level of depth on the blue line.
Surprised me to recall Skjei didn't make the team in '13I may be wrong on this but Gopher hockey WJC champions:
2010: Jordan Schroeder
2013: Mike Reilly
2017: Ryan Lindgren
2020: Brock Faber, Ryan Johnson, Jackson Lacombe
We may have just doubled our gold medalist count in one year.
