I just think he is going to need some time to adjust to the speed of the college game despite testing well at the NHL Combine. I don't think I'd project him as a starter on the top line. If it happens, wonderful....but I would be shocked.
    Drink the cardinal koolaid. Yummm.

    Actually, if you want to feel really good about the men's program, just ponder how insanely loaded the UW women's team is (there is no way they lose more than 2 or 3 games all year), then come here. The positive endorphins open your eyes to the positives of the men's program. I'm high as a kite right now.

    Nic Kerdiles only played 60 of the possible 79 games in his two years as a Badger due to an NCAA penalty his first year, and injuries his second. Even so, he finished with a respectable 71 points and an excellent 1.18 ppg average. (Had Nic come back as I suggested he should, he would have easily made the list, perhaps avoided a career threatening injury in the A, and been a red hot property going to the bigs. But hind sight is 20/20 as they say.)

    Brendan Smith capped his 3 year career as a Badger with 52 points in 2010, however, a slow start with only 12 his first season leaves Smitty short of this list with 87 career points.

    While Justin Schultz never cracked 50 points in his 3 years as a Badger, he did have 22-47-44 leaving him tied with #53 all time, Dany Heatley. Justin's 113 career points also has him tied with Norm McIntosh for the 8th spot among highest scoring Blueliners to ever play for the Badgers. Justin did college hockey right, surprising many by opting to come back to the Badgers for his Junior year, after which he made the jump with Edmonton and has been in the NHL ever since.

    You also are correct in thinking that the remaining 2 players on the list played 4 years for the Badgers. Good job EODS!

    I feel like I recall bunch or recent seniors in the 90s and that none of them made it.

    Which leavesÖ Mersch?

    And unless Hughes or Bessie or one of the other recent guys did it, Iím going to say it was an early Eaves guy. Gilbert?

    Michael Mersch will always be a favored Badger in my eyes. He just wasn't a very good skater and didn't seem to have the natural talent that some guys have, yet he worked and worked and worked and just built himself into THE guy that could put the puck in the net when you needed it. Mike Mersch's outstanding UW career came to an end in 2014 with 67 goals and 120 career points, making him # 49 on the Badgers all time list and just a bit ahead of Hobey Blake Geoffrion. Excited to see if Dom can follow in the footsteps of his big brother this year.

    Grant Besse is an excellent guess that I'm surprised wasn't made sooner, however he couldn't buy a goal in the last half of his senior year and finished just short with 97 points.

    Tom Gilbert has already been guessed.... WRONG!

    Just one player since 2000 with 100 career points or more remains. Who the heck could it possibly be?

    I saw that Ronny Wolf!

    On the one hand I'm admonishing you for not reading the previous posts fully. On the other hand I'm giving you credit for a correct answer with Michael Davies as clearly no one who was cheating the system would have posted Michael Davies as an answer at this point. My rules so good guess!

    So again to recap where we stand:

    23. Mark Zengerle - 162 points - 2014

    45. Michael Davies - 123 points - 2010

    47. Robbie Earl - 121 points - 2006

    49. Michael Mersch - 120 points - 2014

    51. Blake Geoffrion - 114 points - 2010

    53. Dany Heatley - 113 points - 2001

    53. Justin Schultz - 113 points - 2012

    57. Ryan MacMurchy -110 points - 2006

    67. Joe Pavelski- 101 points - 2006

    67. ???

    Perhaps a bit overshadowed by a few of his teammates and a bit underrated by some fans, Tyler Barnes put up 4 solid years of production to achieve what so many Badgers have not. His 101 points ties him with Little Joe, the Big Pavelski at #67 all time for UW. Tyler has been tearing up the ECHL with 222 points in 3 years with 6 different teams, but he hasn't been able to stick in the A yet. I'd love to see him take an opportunity to go to Europe and play where I think his considerable offensive skills could really shine.

    Thank you all for playing, as a reward, you will all be my guests at the Chuck Schwartz Suite at the Kohl Center for a Badger Hockey game on a date yet TBD**. (Even gwhinwi, despite his obvious self control issues.)

    Here's a softy for the special bonus question: There are just six Badgers with an amazing 200 or more career points. All but one played for Badger Bob Johnson. Who is it?


    ** Likely to take place sometime after my first really significant lottery win.

    In the words of the immortal Arthur Fonzarelli - Correctamundo!

    "Tony the Tiger" aka "Tony Terriffic" aka "The Downers Grove Dazzler" aka "The West Side Weapon" aka "The Northwoods Night Train" aka "The Badger Bullet" aka "The Badger Bully" aka "The New York Nuclear Option" aka "The Los Angeles Locomotive" aka "The San Jose Sledgehammer" aka "The Colorado Kingpin" aka "The Pied Piper of Pittsburgh" aka "The Detroit Duke of Demolition" and soon to be known as "The Wizard of Wisco" lit the lamp a perfect 100 times for the Badgers to go along with his 120 helpers giving him 220 career points and making him the last Badger to crack the double century mark.


    This bonus answer earns EODS the coveted place nearest the Spotted Cow beer fountain within the Chuck Schwartz Suite at the Kohl Center at a time yet TBD. Congratulations.

    I can't see a reason that UW would be ranked that high right now. Gotta see what they have before you give them any initial accolades.

    The schedule was released months ago...

    Here is the link to the article from UWBadgers.com

    Still waiting for details on the Chicago trip...Kohl Center is booked for a basketball game vs Michigan on the 19th (Saturday). United Center is booked for a Bulls game on the 19th (Saturday) and a Blackhawks game on the 20 (Sunday). The interesting tidbit is that the Blackhawks game is crazy early, 11:30AM start. Maybe they scheduled to allow for an NHL / NCAA double-header?

    That sounds kind of cool with the Blackhawks. Unfortunately that is my annual snowshoe trip up north (ie drinking and sheepshead).

    If that's how it goes, I think we college hockey fans will get screwed... They have the Blackhawks game scheduled as an NBC game (which is likely the real reason for the 11:30 a.m. start.) If they did the doubleheader thing, I could see them only making it available to the fans who are at the Blackhawks game, 95 percent of whom would leave... (and since all the fairweather Hawks fans pay the exorbitant prices to sell out every game, we'd have no way to actually get tickets if we wanted them for less than $150 a pop. Otherwise, if they are going to actually turn over the stadium and send NHL fans out and let a new ticketed crowd in, we wouldn't see a start time before 6 p.m. on a Sunday, I'm guessing. Either way not good for folks hoping to travel from Wisconsin. This is a real bummer - last year's United Center game was one of the highlights for our family...

    Does anyone here know if they ever do noon hockey before a 7 p.m. basketball game at the UC? This link says it can turn around in two hours (but one line says a few extra hours are needed for basketball broadcast cabling... http://graphics.chicagotribune.com/gamechangers/
