This is a fun read.  However, I don't see why Schroeder would have to play WHL.  Since he's not currently a Major Junior player, he could play NHL or AHL... which is what I would negotiate for if I was his agent.  The NHL team won't want to do that because they'll lose a year on the entry level contract, but I say "F*** the WHL, it's NHL, AHL, or the goofers only".

Couple quotes in that aren't real flattering to the Gophers or to Patrick White.



If you're asking why would Schroeder leave university to play junior hockey, my guess is the Canucks aren't that happy with the Gophers program right now. And if Patrick White is staying in Minny, then that might also tell you how the Canucks feel about him and his progress within the Gophers system.

Aaron Ness is foregoing his senior year to sign with the Islanders. Apparently this was news to some goofer fans, but I heard the decision was made a LONG time before the goofers were embarrassed by UAA. Regardless, the goofers have plenty of talented players... but that's obviously not their problem.

Can Aaron Ness actually play with the big boys? Or is he one of those guys that will play the pro game better?

I predict Oliver Lauridsen will make "the show" before Ness and will play more career games than Ness.

Bruneteau graduates from UND in 2 years, will go to grad school and transfer to Vermont to play with his brother. Also UND forward Mike Cichy will transfer.

I feel bad for both of them...not a good situation for them at UND. Best of luck to both of them with the remainder of their college hockey careers. Hope they are successful.

Oh snap!



Max Gardiner was just drafted into the USHL. Does Dubuque know something we don't?
