    Hope someone passes that article on to Mel. Good to know that the place that wants him back doesn't think much of his recruiting skills or eye four talent.. How many times this year did Mel state that this group of D was one of the most talented in the nation, as well as being the most talented as a group that he had ever coached...

    Hack job of a piece just looking to stir up trouble.

    LOL!! I hear Houghton has a McDonald's, a Walmart Super Center, and a stop light these days. That's pretty uptown compared to when I was there in the 70s.

    The Peoples Republic of Ann Arbor won't allow a Walmart so I'd argue it's a few notches below Houghton in amenities (all of the big box stores are just across the city limits in Ypsilanti). Houghton certainly has better skiing.

    If Red passes away on the bench, they can prop him up and do "Weekend at Red's" for a while...

    Yes, and all the sales tax dollars go to Saline. And all the tax dollars spent on Carpenter Road go to Ypsi. [SAD TROMBONE][/SAD TROMBONE] FWIW, Mel lived in Saline when he coached at U of M.

    In terms of overall talent, Tech was in the top 2 or 3 in the WCHA. Some clown who only saw the GLI, has no clue of the Huskies talent level in their league.

    He isn't dead already? I could have sworn Red's corpse has been coaching the last two seasons.

    I thought they played well in the GLi and to tell the truth represented their talent fairly. They beat Michigan easily and could have won by a bigger margin. Then went 10 minutes into overtime with WMU. With all due respect, the talent level has to be measured nationally, not against the league, imho. And I would like to see the talent level continue to climb, which I think it is. I Know we are losing some really good defensemen, but I think next years' team will be better than this years.
    And given what Minnesota State recruited for this coming year we will have to be better in order to compete.

    I hope so, we need more scoring to make that happen.

    Top 6
    L'Esperance, Lucchini, Jackson, Steman or Smith, Baltus, and Gould.

    Does that look right if Baltus gets the redshirt?

    Yes, I also wonder if shirtless or someone else thinks we have any forwards coming in that can be a top line player. ?

    I haven't looked at the recruit grid enough, so not sure when he's coming in, but Jagger Williamson should be a top 6 guy

    I have a feeling that Williamson is getting pushed back. I'm pretty sure next year's class will be: Aleksi Poikola, Marcus Russell, Greyson Reitmeier, Justin Misiak, and Jack Becker.

    Becker is the only one that could get bumped because of a Baltus redshirt, but he seems like the most likely to push for top 6 minutes. Reitmeier has the best stats but also plays in the weakest league. I could certainly see him performing like Alex Smith did this year with a similar background. Misiak also has great numbers but is in the NAHL.

    I agree with that list of forwards, but I'm not at all sure who's coming in on defense. If you go strictly by age, it seems like Cooper Watson, Travis Brown, Seamus Donohue, Mitch Meek, Tristan Rostagno and Jake Gingell would all be candidates for what looks like 4 or 5 roster slots for D. Donohue and Meek seem the most likely as they are the most recent 20 y/o commits on D.

    Don't forget Tyler Rockwell (also a '96). I fully expect Kiilunen to be done as he seemed to be more of a filler in case of multiple injuries. Cooper Watson, Rostagno, and Meek are all '96s and signed NLIs at some point so I expect all three of them to come in. Gingell is an early '97 and also signed his NLI so he may have to come in but right now I have him penciled in 2018. That leaves Brown, Donohue, and Rockwell. Despite Brown having the most goals and points of any committed d-man, he seems like the odd man out without having signed an NLI or committing recently, but the blueline is anyone's guess how the logjam plays itself out.

    That's hard to say. Whoever it is, it's very political process and let's hope the new person is as supportive of athletics as President Mroz is. I'm going to see an alumni friend who is really connected soon. I'll ask him, but it's bound to change as the time frame gets closer.
    One thing we need is someone who can represent us well in Lansing.

    Glen is a great guy, really made things positive on campus as a whole. They need someone similar to him in my opinion. Will try to find any info next week.

    Maybe we should just change the form letter sent to recruits now...
