I saw the Guptill and Porter threads but thought it might be a good idea to make a comprehensive thread since a few more deals have gone down and more Wolverines hockey alumni are on the move:
- Matt Hunwick to the New York Rangers (previously Colorado)
- Kevin Porter to the Detroit Red Wings (original thread) (previously Buffalo)
- Steve Kampfer to the New York Rangers (previously Minnesota)
- Al Montoya to the Florida Panthers (previously Winnipeg)
- Mike Cammalleri to the New Jersey Devils (5 years/$25 million) (previously Calgary)
The Hobey Baker winner is back home.
DET signs Kevin Porter to a two-way deal. Split last season between BUF (NHL) and Rochester (AHL).— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) July 1, 2014
Had a discussion today with a friend and wanted to get the MGoBoard's opinions on who they think will be next.
I think the next national champion of the "big 3" (Football, Men's Basketball, Hockey) will be Hockey because of the excellent talent they have now as well as having another a first round NHL draft pick come in for potentially a minimum of 3 years.
They just have to put it together chemistry wise. IMO, it's all there. We've seen what they're capable of when clicking. That goes for everyone. Nagelvoort was leading the nation in save % for a good chunk of last season as a freshman.
For the next national POY, this is a tough one but I would say Basketball.
Zach Nagelvoort taken #111 overall (21st pick of 4th round) by the Edmonton Oilers.
Congrats Zach and good luck down the road. You'll need it in Edmonton in 3 years unless all their #1 or #2 picks finally pan out.
Is he at risk of being plucked early by the OIL?
The Calder Trophy is the NHL's rookie of the year award. Danny Dekeyser was a candidate as well.
Congrats to him, his NHL future is bright!
Nathan McKinnon wins, and deservedly so.
In other news, Patrick Roy wins the Adams over Mike Babcock.
