You're a funny man TJK. Just a Badger fan that cares for the program and has connections like Chuck.

UW wasn't in his top 5, I'm not sure UW ever had a chance like they did with Boeser or Jost. Schuey and MM had their foot in the door, I don't know if they were ever invited in. I think the coaching changes kinda torpedoed whatever chance UW had, Bittner and Strand came too late for the party to make any difference.

They didn't have their foot in the door with Jost. The only real connection with Jost and UW was that he and Fabbro are best friends. A year ago it was all but a given that if Fabbro went NCAA it would be with Wisconsin. Badgerice is correct that Shuchuk was well connected with Fabbro and while obviously there are several other factors over the last year, Shuchuk being gone was certainly significant.

ahh, I switched the 2. Oops.

I updated the spreadsheet with Kunin leaving the program.

Good, except you still have Frederic coming in next year. It seems that can hardly be possible. :(

I know exactly what you mean.

I did check to make sure he hasn't bailed yet....

Don't pull the trigger too soon.

I reverted the spreadsheet. Didn't take too much work. (Thanks Google!)

I noticed on that spreadsheet that you have a walk-on goalie need next year. I don't know if Grunewald is actually on scholarship. If not, there could be a scholarship goalie coming in next year.

According to this page, Grunwald is on scholarship. I'll keep looking though.

He could be on scholarship. But, if he ever see's a second of action at UW I'd be surprised. Although saying that, he is a big body to throw in the goal.

Thanks. I just took Chuck's and ran with it. Hopefully I can keep it up to date.

I agree there. Looks like it's Jurusik's goal for the foreseeable future.

F Dan Labosky has committed to Wisconsin.

https://twitter.com/EarLobes27/status/661704352982155264

He was at CC last season, but left in December. I would think him to be a Sophomore when he enrolls, but we'll have to see when he'll join the team.

Interesting get. Was Besse's teammate at Benilde-St. Margaret's. I really liked him a lot in High School.

21 forwards next year? Wow. Potential roster cuts maybe...?

Yeah, I would have to think that the roster would have to change at some point. I just added him to the list since I hadn't seen anything about someone leaving... other than Kunin, of course.

even more sign that Kunin is leaving, just not before this weekend.

That was my thought as well. The timing of Labosky committing seems far too coincidental.

In any case I think we knew there were going to be some guys currently on the roster that would probably (hopefully) be getting replaced in the future.
