I played pretty well at the park on Saturday. Just putting that out there.

We have our annual end of the year coaches game this Friday. Rumor is Shuey will be a bit late for the Michigan State game as he will be in north central Wi scouting. Not sure of my eligibility after 6.5 years of undergrad. Just putting that out there.

Depends on early departures is my guess.

My sons and I played a bunch of hockey in the basement Saturday and they still looked really good. One's a 2014 recruit and one's a 2016 recruit. The 2014 can play all 3 positions, prefers goaltending, but would be a Mersch type forward, the 2016 is more of a speedy mobile D in the flavor of Justin Schultz. Just putting that out there.

I used to play some mean street hockey and am going for my Master's this fall at UW. I'd have to get used to a puck without rollers, ice, and skates. Just thought I throw my hat in the (banner) ring.

Departure percentage for Kerdiles and McCabe? Kerdiles is so effing good, but you guys seem to get lucky with guys staying an extra year.

Tell that to Turris and Suter who left after one year.

FWIW, personally I'd say McCabe is definitely ready, and can't see a lot left for him at this level, other then he's still pretty young at just turning 20 in Oct.

Kerdiles is an awesome talent, but I'm completely undecided as to whether he's ready to go. Probably more because of his limited games than anything. Today I'd still advise him to return for one more year and of course Eaves will tout how one more year will almost assure him of getting his degree at some point, which does seem to have a certain level of importance to him.

It's a flip of coin to me, though they are both certainly capable enough.

Ok, I realize I didn't answer anything, and am basically asking the same question. You're welcome everyone.

From what I've heard, there's a reasonable (don't ask me exactly what "reasonable" means) chance that Kerdiles stays because of the Ducks' depth at forward, which might make the Ducks tell him to stay. (Also the thing where he's missed significant time in both of his 2 seasons.)

I'm not so sure there will not be several holes in the Ducks lineup at forward. Sellane (turns 44 this Summer and I'm not sure he is the second coming of Chelios or Gordie Howe), Koivu (39), Penner (at 31 is on pace to have his best season in several and has been on consecutive 1 year prove it type deals...pretty sure he will be looking to get paid again), Winnik, and Jackman are all UFA's this Summer. There will likely be a few forward spots coming free.

I don't have the exact stat in front of me, but before this past off season Wisconsin had lost the most early departures over the past few years. I believe Denver was No. 2.

As for your question, I'd say McCabe 92%, Kerdiles 80%.

Edit: Found the stat I was talking about....

"Since Wisconsin's last run to the Frozen Four in 2010, no team in college hockey has lost more talent in terms of early departures than Wisconsin. In total the Badgers have lost nine underclassmen over the past three off-seasons.

For comparison sake, Boston University is second with eight early departures, followed by Denver (seven) and Michigan State (five). Notre Dame, North Dakota, Minnesota-Duluth, and Boston College all have had four early departures since 2010."

Obviously Minnesota had a bunch this past off-season, so I'm sure they would rank up there close now.

Yeah, Wisconsin has lost a ton of high end talent early recently. Doesn't surprise me they are #1 in this stat recently. Gophers went thru a similar stretch in the mid 2000's (Johnson, Okposo, Kessel, Schroeder, etc..). We've been much luckier lately. Even last year's losses were mostly expected and were able to be planned for.

The last part of your post is something that is overlooked. Departures that can be planned for don't hurt you (as much). You can treat a Jake McCabe like a senior right now. It's the surprises that kill teams.
