Wait a minute....

This ******* is leaving school? After 2 months and 5 games?

JFC

He lasted longer than Jeremy Roenick.

Probably not (but who knows after three years). Problem remains...when you sign up a kid with talent, you don't know just how much talent he will have and just how much of a ****** he will be.

and apparently he is a big a****** . Imagine (if it's true) that he was at practice yesterday? Like Mookie said, JFC................ Eichel goes to BC and BC is in the Garden last April. He was that good and as Nick alluded to, had class and said all the right stuff. Can't help but hope he has a fantastic NHL career

Well said. Jumped cause he wasn't having the success he was anointed.

Highly doubt that was the reason. We're talking 5 games here. And he had a 3 assist game over the weekend.

And no, i don't want the next bracco or milano. Combined they played 5 games at BC. I'd gladly take a one year player here and there but not guys like bracco and milano when there were serious doubts about them from day 1. I want no part of that anymore.

...This ****es me off in the sense that there are kids that work their *** off to try to get a D1 scholarship and this kid steals it for one year from someone more deserving.

It's not often that I find common cause with the Chestnut Hill glitterati but I place high value on honesty, character, and integrity, none of which apparently apply to this kid and his handlers. Since his scholarship apparently can't be used on anyone else this year, then Nick's observation is spot-on. What a scumbag move.

So far if we're keeping track, two Harvard decommits:

Linell: 138 GP, 7G, 25A, 32 pts
Bracco: 5 GP, 0G, 3A, 3 pts
TOTAL: 143-7-28-35

One left too early and the other... not so much.

Doesn't really feel like this is working out for us. Bothman must be getting a kick out of it.

Knowing what we do about bracco, how in the hell did he ever commit to play at harvard in the first place???

Are there any recruits out there who can come in next semester? BC's really thin at forward now

Kid would be burning a year, no?


This is really a ****ty *** thing to do leaving in the middle (start!!) of a year taking up 1 of 18 scholarships

Nobody does.

But when you recruit a kid, you don't know that he'll bail. So every time, you will make the same decision to accept a great talent who says he wants to play for you as Bracco did...even if he may turn out to bail on your program.

I'm not sure. Maybe he'd still have 8 semesters, so he'd have to sit out half a season somewhere along the way.

Would be eligible after classes start in January, would have 3 seasons of eligibility after this season ends in March or April. I believe Freddy Hack Meyer did exactly that at BU.

I'd say the difference with these 2 kids is that everyone thought there was a great chance they would go major junior before even committing to BC

I got the impression BC cooled on clendening because they weren't sure about his level of commitment. That philosophy sure has changed since then. And it didn't exactly hurt BC to not have adam clendening.

Trevor Mingola came into Providence midseason after transferring out of Union and PC's number 3 goalie came in December one year when Gillies was with the WJC.

Tirrone at UNH was the most recent example

There's an argument to be made that the USTNDP has been good for hockey in general and the players on the team in particular, but its impact on college hockey has been almost wholly negative.

The entire philosophy of the NTDP is to develop American players not for the NCAA but for the NHL. Many of these players see college as a very short way station to that ultimate goal and to be fair most high end players always have but the NTDP has to a large extent demystified the whole college "mystique" and many of its players no longer have it as their personal goal to play D-1 hockey unless it can directly help in their contract negotiations with the NHL team that drafted them
