  1. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Sure they are high end recruits, but blue chips are 1st round draft picks
  2. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Totally agree, you can’t go all in on young players, especially blue chips.
  3. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Nelson, forbort, Finley, etc. Beyond the blue chips, we used to get many more drafted players. Guys like Kristo, Knight, etc, etc. 2-5th rounders.
  4. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Agreed, but I’m not sure the OP said that. Those boys are pretty talented. At the very least mismash may turn into a very nice bottom nine NHL player, not sure he’ll be a first line type of player but who knows, he’s still super young. i think when certain posters bring up the fact that we’ve lacked the number of first rounders (compared to early to mid 2000s), other posters seem to think they’re saying there is no talent. Not true, you can’t get into UNDs hockey program without being talented. What I’ve noticed more the past few years is that some kids simply can’t play at UND due to the pressure to perform. Jumping up levels always hits players differently.
  5. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    We have two fringe blue chippers. Blue chips are first rounders. But I am excited to see what they can do next year.
  6. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Not interested? This kid is going to go in the top ten this summer. Sure, I was interested but there was no chance we’d get him. But for discussions sake, why wouldn’t anyone want a kid with his talent? Regardless of when he would leave. As long as the player and coach are on the same page as far as when said player is leaving who cares , I’d take wahlstrom for the year and try and push another recruit back a year. The kid’s elite. Now if he’s a terrible locker room guy that’s entirely different.

    Haha, this was bound to happen. Easton going to stay?
  8. 2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Carle has actually been a very good recruiter lately...but has always had Monty to back him.
  9. 2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Norm Bazin to DU? Solid coach but that will rub some folks the wrong way.
  10. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Haha all the same schools.
  11. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    I’ll be following Weiss as well. He had comparable numbers to Hain durinf the year...but Weiss looked much better in the u18 tourney.
  12. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    They been following each other for a while now. There’s other schools involved too.
  13. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Strong may be a stretch but definitely not bad. Mancinelli’s numbers looked solid given the strength of the league he played in. If a guy like Rizzo commits here one of those kids will play an extra year of juniors. Caufield will be tested next year. I’d like to see Blaisdells numbers improve....and I’m sure they will.
  14. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Another goal last night.
  15. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    He couldn’t get into Harvard.
  16. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Rizzo to captain the vees next season. Clearly he must be thinking of going the college route....hopefully he doesnt choose wisco, Denver or the Boston schools.
  17. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Ya. He will get to play a ton. But this kid is going to go in the top 4 rounds of the draft. I wish Bubs would make room for him.
  18. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Schloss notes that Weiss may go to Omaha....jeez. wahlstrom between BC and Mich
  19. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    He had something wrong with his shoulder alignment too. Supposedly this is all fixed. I saw him right before he signed....good sized lad.
  20. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Haha. I’m saying there are certain folks that post things to get a rise out of others. It goes both ways though, those folks bashing the recruiting need to relax as well. Every year we get good recruits. A couple months ago I pointed out that we don’t get nearly the number of blue chips that we used to during the early to mid 2000s. We finally got a natty though so there’s that.
  21. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    No I get it.
  22. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Jeez...you guys don’t stop do you. This is actually getting somewhat comical. I’m entertained.
  23. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Haha that’s ok. I would think a spot would be made for Weiss if he wanted to come in this year. He’s going to go in rounds 3-5.
  24. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Not sure how all this got so sideways but the genesis of this discussion had to do with Weiss not going to BU anymore. He’d be a solid college recruit, very solid actually. Not sure why these discussion always get so off track.
  25. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Sure. I’ve noticed that too. I think Weiss is ranked much higher than Hain on the iss rankings.
