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.
|4 days 16 hours 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.
|1 week 4 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.
|1 week 4 days ago||A few changes||
No redshirt listed for Mike Szuma. Spencer Hyman is not on the roster.
|1 week 5 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.
|1 week 5 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.
|1 week 6 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.
|2 weeks 1 day 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.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I wouldn't worry||
I wouldn't worry about him leaving early. Goalie development is a slow process.
|2 weeks 2 days 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.
|2 weeks 2 days 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.
|2 weeks 4 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.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Pretty goal||
No chance for the Greek goalie. He was all alone.
|2 weeks 5 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.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Wow||
What a game.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||They've come together||
Mexico barely qualified, then lost Corona and Montes.
No one was expecting anything from this team but they've put it together, starting with Memo Ochoa.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Crazy||
If the result holds Mexico will advance to the round of 16 with 1 goal scored, 0 goals allowed.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Great||
The MGoBoard never lets an opportunity to complain about Dave Brandon go to waste.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
Wow. What a shot.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||For 1||
Offers can become non-committable. If Michigan is only going to take 3 linemen, when they get 3 linemen the coaching staff can tell players they can't commit.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Icing on the cake||
Colombia scores in stoppage time, 3-0 over Greece.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I like Sirigu||
The dropoff from Buffon to Sirigu shouldn't be that bad. He was goalkeeper of the year in France two years in a row.
I'm more concerned with our attack having Balotelli and Rossi. I wanted to see Domenico Berardi on this team if they can't get anything going.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||For tonight||
For Azzurri, no Buffon or De Scaglio. Sirigu starts in his place.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||He couldn't oversign him at LSU||
It would be difficult for him to pull a scholarship from his son. The usual form letter, hide in his office trick won't work as well when he has to see him again.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Oh boy is right||
The only reason I remember Emilien is because he transfered after being demoted to 3rd string behind Van Slyke, then after he left everyone on the safety depth chart got hurt and we had to start Ray Vinopal.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Also||
Also, the 2015 class is a big one. As you mentioned above, Warren and Connor are highly rated, but Boka is a defensemen who has the talent to be a #1 and Lavigne is on the CSS Rankings for goalies. Sam Miletic and Cooper Marody are both solid, but under the radar prospects. Cecconi as well.
2016 is even bigger. All 4 players will play for NTDP next year, and 3 of them already have NHL projections.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||It's a paperwork thing||
I'm not sure why a BC blog is reporting that he committed, that's old news. It's supposed to be a paperwork thing, because he's graduating high school and trying to join the team a year early.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||No, he didn't||
Revoking a press pass from someone like Bacon or the Freep guys will not end well for the AD, but they did banish him to the pressbox nosebleeds after Three And Out.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Oh joy||
I shouldn't be surprised when the NCAA shoots down 3/4 shields every summer, but I still get my hopes up.
After all, this is the same governing body who moved back their contact date and text limits almost 10 years after the OHL moved their draft date back.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Yep||
He was one of the best hitters in the game. If he didn't play in a terrible market for 7 years, at the same time Chipper Jones, Griffey Jr, Sosa, McGwire and the Killer B's were tearing baseball up in larger markets, he would be a 1st ballot Hall of Famer.
