    It's similar to the Dhooghe brothers. Brock maybe is a little more skilled than Jason Dhooghe was but he'll come in as a freshman and be a depth guy early with a chance to develop into more.

    Cole is a 16 year old on the U17's that has drawn comparisons to Paul Kariya -- so that's not too shabby a start for him.


    Maybe there's a Smurf line in our future! Tony played with Corey Millen and Mike Donnelly on the LA Kings "Smurf Line" for a while... They were pretty freakin' good!

    The defense first or defense heavy classes are great...but...

    Losing Grant is huge unless Rizzo is replacing him.

    Let's get some speed and legit goal scorers in asap.
    It's clear that the Defense needed an upgrade and it usually takes D longer to adjust to the college game than F. So bringing in a highly talented D heavy class the year before a highly talented F heavy class can absolutely payoff in the end, but the path can be a bit frustrating.

    Great point. When looking at the recruiting it looks like 2019-20 is going to be the year.

    So Wisconsin has a 38 recruited man roster for 2020-2021 (24 forwards, 11 Defense, 1 goalie and will need 2 more) now...

    Pretty cool, eh? That was the case with us about 10 years ago. We see a lot of those guys in the NHL.

    Aren't they all 16yr olds on the Under 17 team? The 17 yr olds are on the U18 team, while the 18 yr olds are in juniors.

    LOL, because every verbal commit ends up on campus (they all continue to develop into D1 caliber players, none go to Major Junior, none change their own mind and want to go elsewhere), every player stays to their senior year (none are ever an academic/criminal/injury casualty, none ever go pro, none ever don't like their role on a team and transfer), and every kid on a spreadsheet 2 or 3 years out that might be coming comes in their 18 year old season and doesn't spend a year or two playing junior.

    In case you are being serious (or if you weren't but someone else reads this and doesn't quite get how things work) here's a little breakdown of the Badgers 20/21 fortunes. First, at this point I don't see the Peltonen brothers at Wisconsin...the Dman is an interesting prospect but with a deep stable of guys in front of him...I would suspect a greener pasture is better for all involved, and the brother that is a forward is playing NAHL in his 19 year old season. Second, guys that are drafted don't usually make it to their senior seasons in college as their drafting teams don't like risking assets they spent a draft pick on for nothing as players can exercise their option for free agency in the summer after their senior year. That reality makes the likelihood of any of Weissbach, Kalynuk, Ess, or Inamoto playing in 20/21 as seniors that were drafted not all that good. Next, teams that bring in talent that gets selected in the first few rounds of the draft are lucky to get a season or two at best out of those players before they move on to pro. I've seen K'Andre Miller, Turcotte, and the younger Caufield in first round mock drafts, Sampo Ranta is a grade A in Central Scouting's last update, and Emberson and the Krygier's are all B rated. Several of these guys will not be playing what would be their junior year (or sophomore season in the case of Caufield/Turcotte). Last, guys like Koufis, Lavelle, and even Leyh will all be actual college freshman based on their academic class which is still a little unusual to have kids go straight from high school to college hockey and skip a year or even 2 of junior A. Hopefully all these guys are that good, but realistically one or even 2 won't be.

    There is a fine line between the dark days of the Eaves Era where a guy like Dougherty bails and your pipeline doesn't have anything you can fall back on and you end up scrambling into a Jake Bunz or Opilka bails and you end up with Jurusik having to play virtually every minute in net as an 18 year old and having a pipeline with enough talent to be in the mix nationally every year.
