2020 Early Departures

Recommended Posts

Turcotte from UW has signed. Definitely looks as though he could have played another year. Heard UW was a sh!t show this year though.

Makes you wonder if others will soon follow suit. Caulfield, Miller, etc...

If you have access, read the article in The Athletic about Wisconsin's drafted guys.  Pretty telling.

Wow.... yeah that seems like a completely different culture than Nodak

Just a stop off along the way type situation.

HEARD?  That whole team absolutely QUIT halfway thru that 9-1 loss at Ohio State last weekend.  Hard to play hockey with a pen and NHL contract occupying space in your jock strap!

That article shocked me to see the NHL involvement in the day to day and week to week of their lives.

Is that the norm? I dont think ive heard that out of UND.

As much as they are our rivals, sad to see Minnesota and Wisconsin in disarray with hockey.  They are two proud programs.  College hockey as whole needs good Minnesota and Wisconsin teams.

Can someone sum up the article? 

Here's a decent one not behind a paywall.

https://madison.com/wsj/sports/college/hockey/arrival-of-high-end-talent-didn-t-lead-to-success/article_030a4aab-f94b-5a58-813d-c58127cb4481.html

My takeaway:  they didn't play good enough defense, and their goaltending wasn't good enough either.   Two new goalies coming in, and I suppose a revolving door of high end offensive talent to replace what's going to leave.

 I wouldn’t call a certain team proud that likes to dive but that’s just my opinion

K'Andre Miller from UW is now gone as well.
He was a soph.

Addition by subtraction for Bucky?

I will never understand how Wisconsin finished last with that talent.  Give me a break.....

I'd bet Caufield leaves too.

I saw Wisconsin dismantle Duluth early in the season. I’m surprised by their season.

Duluth, didn't really have a good start to the season. They progressively got better as the season went on.

Sounds like any contacts signed now won't go into effect until July 1 unless the nhl season restarts. So no burning a year off that entry level contract by signing now. Takes away some incentive.

Tyler Nanne done at Minnesota - for all the griping from Gopher fans about 24 year old Canadian kids on North Dakota’s roster...

I believe he got pretty sick in one of his early years of college and that through everything off.

He had a heart issue, so I’m somewhat sympathetic to his age...

Sounds like Perunovich from Duluth close to signing.
And Caufield from UW leaning towards staying another year.
