You're naive if you don't think this stuff already goes on to some extent. When kids are thinking of "decommitting", it usually isn't without some encouragement going on from a coach at another school that wants him. They just aren't as frontal about it as football and basketball coaches are.

I have to imagine you are right. How many kids are willing to decommit from a program without knowing what other teams are interested in them.

You should not be able to offer scholarships to players more than 2 incoming classes away. Meaning that today 13-14 is incoming, so you can not start 15-16 just these past couple of weeks. These kids take verbal commitments as security blankets, the mean nothing. They all still continue to look and see what is out there. I am so turned off by college hockey, I used to love it.
