I can't imagine Greenway staying now. What a disappointment.
Quinn's recruiting took into consideration BU could have 5 early departures following this season. I think the staff was prepared, but was hopeful that some of the players - IMO, JFK in particular - would return.
Next year's team will have the necessary # of bodies, but the deficiencies may be a lack of secondary (or even primary) scoring and inexperience (again).
NHL will not participate in 2018 Olympics:
It'll be very interesting to see what impact this has on college hockey next season. And how USA Hockey and Hockey Canada may construct their Olympic teams.

Even though the forward corps from 2 years ago wasn't what you'd call physical, they were far more willing to get to the net w/ speed and good things often happened b/c of it. Part of it was attributed to the intimidation factor Eichel brought, but it was also attributed to having experienced forwards like O'Regan, Rodrigues, Hohmann who played a more mature game and were willing to make plays in difficult areas.

Was that not an issue when he was a student because, well, he was a student?
Replacing JFK and Keller (and possibly Greenway) with Tkachuk and Bowers is definitely a downgrade of the top group, but losing Roberto and adding Crone, Cockerill, and Amonte should upgrade the secondary scoring. It'll be hard to know if this is a net positive or negative until they start playing hockey.
How strong is the 2018 draft class?
At the top are goaltender Alexis Gravel (6-2, 205) and left wing Benoit-Olivier Groulx (6-1, 184) of Halifax; right wing Andrei Svechnikov (6-1, 188) of Muskegon; center Brady Tkachuk (6-2, 194) of USA Hockey's National Team Development Program Under-18 team, who is the younger brother of Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk and the son of former NHL star forward Keith Tkachuk; and center Joseph Veleno (6-1, 190) of Saint John (QMJHL).
We hadn't had true NHL talent in some time, he was the first to bolt early that had a legit shot.
