  1. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    I would assume so. 5 star
  2. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Aiden hreshchuk to BC. Colossal commit.
  3. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    With the way recruiting is going, big teams need to throw that gentlemen’s agreement out the door.

    Yeah, Bowen could be the 4th line center. More and more teams are building lines around offensive production, have a top 9 approach vs a top 6/bottom 6 thinking. Bowen is more of an energy guy rather than a stat guy. Important player when healthy, just not a guy who’s going to put up points. You never know though. I’d rather see what Weatherby or hain, or even yon to an extent, can do in a top 9 role.
  5. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Adams, definitely. I didn’t like how he looked in a bottom 6 role last year. I would honestly throw him on the top line and see what happens. i think Hoff needs to be our third center.
  6. Early Departures 2018

    None of them were drafted. Outside of Hoff, none of them did much in juniors (although Yon scored goals at a nice %, he’s simply doesn’t have the vision). I still think Hoff has a good year this year or next. He’s a battler. Doesn’t skate the best. I don’t think you can expect all that much offensively from players who were never offensive players at the previous level. Again, not talking about Hoff here. I’m agreeing with you here by the way . I think JJ needs to pick it up as well. He needs to have a big year this coming year. 25 pts or more. He was a pt per game guy in the USHL.

    Sure on any given year that be the case. My point was that UNDs recruiting strategy has always been a nice blend of blue chips and lower drafted player. They started to go more of the Denver route with a couple high end picks and back filled with over agers. The issue is that if you don’t get the high end kids you’re left with a lot of grinders (unless you find the diamond in the rough). It’s great we’ll be pulling some high end Dmen this coming year. I wish we would have hit on some forwards. Weatherby/Hain could surprise though, you never know.
  8. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Maybe last year. You could be right. In the past 3-4 years MN actually has picked up some over age kids. That is new development however. They have been notorious for having very young teams. A few years ago we had a one of the younger teams in the country too. It all depends how many “true” players you have. Lately we’ve had quite a few over agers.
  9. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    haha. Und typically pulls blue chippers but they back fill with higher end over agers. Similar to teams like Denver. Mn and mich always have very young teams because they rely on very young players. All in all, i like our strategy, I just think we’ve been missing on more higher end players than in years plast. The players we do get and are very saught after recruits, I’ve always said that when they get bashed on this board. Again, I’m focused on the high end kids with my comments.

    MN has won a bunch of conference champioships. Michigan recruits too young...they haven’t had a nice blend of blue chippers and good depth players. Michigan does pull nice blue chippers with the best of hem though, similar to how we used to.
  11. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    I’m not so sure on that. Recruiting has been down a bit in the past 4-5 years as compared to the previous 5-10 years, especially as it relates to high end recruits. We are starting to lose potential commits that we would have rarely lost during the early 2000s. That’s Hockey though, it’s cyclical. Other schools are building their programs and have great facilities (and campus life) too. Also, recruiting has gotten tougher now as bigger program have to recruit younger and younger players. There’s more room to miss with those young players. Schools like the gophs and Michigan can afford to miss more often than us as they have hockey hotbeds in their backyards. all in all, we have a nice defensive group coming in (knock on wood ).

    Supposedly Sandy is in the running for the Rangers job. That’s a big deal.
  13. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    That’s good news. He was super cold since going back to the force.
  14. Early Departures 2018

    They have Slava demin coming in as well as some others. They had some good young guys this year as well however they weren’t given top minutes (for obvious reasons).
  15. Early Departures 2018

    I was talking about DU. But flipping to UMD, they do have the Cates brothers coming in next year. Both top ten in ushl points I believe. That’s pretty heavy.
