Nice pivot away from your BS suggestion that Crotty was recruited due to his midterm draft ranking and the disingenuous suggestion that Crotty and Kotkansalo ďwill automatically be in the line-up to appease whatever NHL teams draft them.Ē Itís not even certain that Crotty will be on next yearís roster, given todayís comment by Quinn that he expects MacLeod to return.

Since, Iíve only seen Kotkansalo once in a streamed game and Crotty not at all, Iíll rely on the judgement and expertise of respected recruiters from BU, BC and North Dakota as well as NHL Central Scouting, rather than someone obsessively beating an anti-Quinn drum and spewing ďbecause I said soĒ pronouncements. You and Hokey should get together and carpool to the next Insufferably Full of Myself Anonymous meeting.

So the answer is you haven't seen him play and your sources of him being a shut down D are internet recruiting experts and supposed interest from other schools by these same experts...NHL Central Scouting..don't make me laugh...interesting that you speak of MacLeod...he is coming back because he has no other choice..Tampa has zero interest in signing him and has in fact fired the guy who drafted him ..probably based on his Central Scouting rating....oh and the NTDP propaganda machine...I heard Quinn announce an 8 man incoming class today..5 forwards and 3 D...didn't have anything to do with MacLeod leaving or staying

As for being in the line up or not ..not pivoting away at all...in fact I hope he doesn't come in because he is an average defenseman in a weak league who has produced nothing...could use another year in juniors...I can only go by what I have witnessed in the past...can't see NHL Network DQ telling any NHL team that their draft pick won't be in the line up...even a 4th or 5th rounder in the weakest draft in 30 years

All I will say is that on paper, BU scares me more next year than they did this year.

Seems like Zegras dropping to the 4th round of the OHL draft (Misassauga) is a good sign that teams don't have a lot of faith that they can convince him to go the MJ route instead. Given that he was rated among the top prospects for it.

With JFK's departure not planned, is another recruit going to get accelerated? Or will the look for someone else?

Did a little digging:

Out (6) - Roberto (F), Kelley (F), Somerby (D) grads; Keller (F), JFK (F) and McAvoy (D) early.

In (8) - Tkachuck (F), Bowers (F), Crone (F), Cockerill (F), Amonte (F), Farrance (D), Kotkansalo (D), Crotty (D).

Sorry, I was just counting forwards. I know it isn't official, but I don't think Greenway will be back.

So Greenway would make 5 leaving, and there are 5 coming in. Not to mention that there are others that didn't get into too many games that will hope to see more ice time.

So I would guess that there aren't plans to add.

I was in a thrash band called the Know It All Pukes back in the 80's, played the Rat a few times.

Are you going off what Greenway said recently? Because a well respected in the know reporter who covers the Wild said that was news to them. Basically, they hadn't heard that from Greenway.

Greenway has said it himself.
He is also on schedule to get his degree in three-years.
And unless Minnesota is handing him a roster spot, it makes sense to continue his development. And they still sign him after next season.

Three year degrees have been quite the thing at BU lately. (O'Connor, Baillargeon, LaCouvee, Greenway)

It's more attainable now that the players arrive on campus during the Summer leading into Freshman year, take 2 courses, and stay on campus for both Summer Terms. If one's taking a full course load during each Fall & Spring semester (and assuming they don't drop any courses), they should meet their degree requirements following the Summer Term leading into what would've been their Sr. year.

In some cases, if one matriculates at BU as an older Freshman, it's presumable that he may have already completed some courses elsewhere while playing Juniors that transferred appropriately over to BU.

I understand Greenway said it himself, well aware of that. Just pointing out that a well respected reporter in Minnesota said that that was news to the Wild. I wouldn't call it a slam dunk that Greenway is back. Guy made it seem like the Wild want to sign him and will talk to him about it.

Or AP credits, if they are clever.

Does this mean he didn't make the USNTDP?

I believe so. The only other player that signed a tender was Trevor Kuntar who did not make the USNDT (was not invited).
