Very strange guy, but he was really funny.

According to Twitter, reports are coming out that this is bigger than 4 players. Like UNC big.

|2 weeks 20 hours ago||Update||
There's an update, per Fox Sports all 4 playes have been dismissed.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||From 247||
From their 247 board, the 4 players were not at practice today.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It has nothing to do with Chicago||
Hockey City Classic is the name of the tourney. The name has nothing to do with Chicago.
Minnesota is also playing in the Hockey City Classic, in Minnesota against Ohio State.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Black and Tan||
I was in a bar Friday and a guy told me, try an Anti-Hero and a Eugene Porter mixed together. I tried it, it's the best Black and Tan I've ever had.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I liked Szuma||
Hyman left quite a while ago. That's why Porikos was added to the roster.
I thought Mike Szuma could have played an important role with the team last season, but the word around Yost was that there was a concussion keeping him out.

|5 weeks 1 day ago||Miletic||
Miletic is 2015 and he's not on NTDP. He is only playing for them on Ivan Hlinka right now.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||No||
We have a goalie commit, Hayden Lavigne for 2015. It's difficult to get multiple starting caliber goalies on the roster so we have to space them out.
They'll take a project guy in a year or so, before going after a high profile guy in 2017 or 2018.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||He won't play for them||
He won't play for Saginaw, neither will Kyle Connor. When the time comes, their rights will be traded for a king's ransom to a team like Sarnia, London or Kitchener.
It's a good sign that they committed together, but we'll see how this plays out over the next two years.

The U-18 team has replaced Hanifin and Werenski, who are both leaving the program a year early and trying to get into college. If Werenski is admitted early, the plan is that he will be at Michigan. If he's not admitted, he will go to London.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Boka||
Boka is the recruit I'm most excited to see on campus. Playing with Hanifin and Werinski overshadowed most of the other defensemen but Boka is a #1 defensemen; big, physical, excellent skater. Very similar to Jake Gardiner.
Miletic is another player to keep an eye on. He missed the cut for NTDP last year, but has Top-6 potential when he gets to Michigan.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I wouldn't worry||
Werenski isn't on their roster because he hasn't signed. I wouldn't worry about him not making it just yet.
Steve Racine wasn't on the roster his freshman year when they released it. It's not a big deal, he was added on later.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||A few changes||
No redshirt listed for Mike Szuma. Spencer Hyman is not on the roster.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I disagree||
Ottawa gets 3 players with unproven but decent potential, an expiring contract off their payroll and an unhappy player out of the locker room. It's a good deal for both sides.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||It's a big trade||
Dallas trades Alex Guptill, Alex Chiasson, Nick Paul and a 2nd round pick for Jason Spezza and Ludvig Karlsson.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Computer rankings||
In college hockey, the computer rankings mean everything.
We can't play BC caliber teams every week, but we want to avoid scheduling too many teams projecting below .5000 in the RPI.
Beating them won't boost our RPI as much, and losing to a team like that is a killer in the rankings.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||It was a surprise||
Nagelvoort was ranked 20 on the CSS goalie rankings in North America and off the top of my head, around 20 goalies were drafted today. Hayden Lavigne was 26 and was not drafted.
MSU commit Ed Minney was #7 and was not drafted either.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||I wouldn't worry||
I wouldn't worry about him leaving early. Goalie development is a slow process.
|9 weeks 14 hours ago||For reference||
It's been a long time since Michigan had a forward drafted in the 1st round, Cogliano and Pacioretty in 2005 and 2007.
It's been even longer since one of our forwards was drafted in the Top-20, Eric Nystrom in 2002.
|9 weeks 15 hours ago||4 possible||
Larkin is the only Michigan recruit with any chance to go in the first 3 rounds. Dancs has a mid-round projection. Murphy and Lavigne will be late round picks if they're taken.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||We do suck||
We beat a bad England team, but the roster was poorly put together.
Our roster was filled with older players for experience, leaving younger more talented players at home. Again.
Balotelli did Balotelli things, the team was terrible and in the end, Prandelli quit.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty goal||
No chance for the Greek goalie. He was all alone.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Oh boy||
I thought Cesare Prandelli put this team together very poorly. Rossi, Berardi and Destro were all left off the roster and the team couldn't score.
Apparently Prandelli feels the same way, because he just quit.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Wow||
What a game.
