Early Departures 2018

Just to get this straight. After complaining all season about UND not having enough high end draft picks, we are now complaining about early departures? Can't have one without the other.

First, that's absolutely not true. My frustration is lately (see past 3 years), is the wide discrepancy between players leaving early between UND and its peers. Frustration is probably the wrong word, it's more jealousy, other teams for whatever reason haven't had to experience it to even close to the same level as UND on as consistent of a basis. I'm not saying UND should change their recruiting at all, it'd just be nice to have one year (see Duluth 2 years ago, SCSU, Denver, Minnesota last year), where everything breaks your way in the early departure front.

And losing low round draft picks and undrafted players early seems to be hitting UND harder than other teams lately.  Problems of success to some extent, but hopefully it rights itself soon (since success has been more muted the last 2 years).  

Wolanin (JR - 4th), Gersich (JR - 5th), T Poolman (JR - 5th), Stecher (JR - UFA), Thompson (JR - 3rd), Ladue (JR - 6th), L Johnson (JR - 5th) - Many of these are guys who were likely expected to be here 4 years when they were brought in.

There isn't one.

Some entries on Reddit and the hockey blogs but that's about it.

I mean, it's probably true, but I'd prefer seeing it from a reputable source. Oh well.

Gersich applied for %GOBC membership and was told to sign early because his 2017 tax form was less than impressive

If Denver loses no one early this off-season, it will make me wonder why. #thingsthatmakeyougohmmm

Anyone getting their hopes up that no news today is good news regarding Gersich?

Capitals reporter saying that deal is close to being done...should have news tomorrow.

Brad cited a Trotz interview that referenced a potential needed roster move for a maybe injured Holtby and the resulting cap implications affecting the deal completion for Shane.

.....he gone.

I was so looking forward to this year for Shane but he was never able to have the same success as last year. Could he have used another year at UND, absolutely! If he does sign I wish him the best. Surely he will be more of a AHL fixture for a while but I suppose they want to get him in their system.
