This shows the importance of having some high end studs in our line-up.  See Pinto last night.  Last year we couldn't score to save our butts.  Almost every time this is mentioned the automatic reply is "Boston University".  If we are to win #9 we need some NHL talent on the roster.  And the Goering for Shaw swap is a winner too.

And let's not overlook the effect players like Pinto have on their teammates.   Every time a Pinto, Boesser, Scmaltz, etc hits the ice the other side has to account for him at all times.  This takes away from coverage or schemes that would otherwise have been on teammates, especially on the PP.   Guys like Gooch benefit from that, even if they do not share a regular shift, but especially when they do. 

Duncan would probably not have been  left to score all those goals from his office spot had the opposition not had to cover T & O.

How about the stud that is a Hobey candidate? This was a massive contention for a lot of fans last year that our players hadn't developed and that was a knock on Bubbs. Well, maybe.... shockingly.... guys needed to develop? 

Guchi, Adams, Weatherby, Peski, Smith all have taken big time steps.

You are correct about the big steps - which pretty much solves the development question.  Looking at last year it was pretty evident there was a scoring talent deficit.  Glad we are back on track.  We seemed to be caught short after the flight after our Natty.  We need a combination of role players and high end studs.  It is our formula for success.  Glad we are back on track.  The answer when we talk about recruiting NHL talent can't be "but Boston University".

No kidding when his speech was on of the 3 best players in the country. I don’t know if I was the 3rd best player on my line.

That was gold, Duncan knew how fortunate he was.
This can only happen with having BLUE CHPPA players on the team. 

UND works hard at bringing in high end players. A prerequisite to bringing home the hardware.
