this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Hockey: Brown Departure Official
So says Michael Spath on Rivals. tbarr chimes in as well. As mentioned earlier, what a strange decision by the Canucks. They had an extra year before the leverage swung in Brown's direction and it's hard to see him as anything other than a disposable fourth liner in the NHL, if that.
Michigan is down to 13 forwards now. Before it looked like the team would actually have considerable depth up front. Now we're two injuries/suspensions/WJC seeyas away from seeing Krikor Arman 2005 suit up. My enthusiasm for the season has taken a huge hit. At least Johnson appears to be showing up; if he had gone, too... well, let's not think about it. Puppies, etc.
(Still the CCHA favorite? Sure.)
