I don't think you are wrong. Looking at Smith's Canisius rosters he seems to value size more than Seth did. However, he has had talented smaller players so I don't think a player like Jake would need to be concerned about not fitting in. In fact, I hope that doing a better job establishing a presence along the boards and in front of the net will provide fast skill players like Jake with a little more room in the offensive zone.

P.S. If coach wanted to establish the impression that size is going to be our dominant feature, then he kept the wrong assistant.............

The good thing is that Graham more than makes up for it in what he brings to the table, even under the Appert regime...

I am straying from "recruits", but it was impossible for me to tell what Nolan Graham was responsible for since the consensus has been that everything had SA's signature.

Please move further discussion to the main thread. :)

It wouldn't surprise me however if someone left next summer also.

I completely agree with that thought.

I have a feeling Burke will become a fan favorite. Big, strong and with a straight line to the net attitude will do it for me.

I wonder if that was the reason that Hayhurst was thinking about leaving. He might have felt that he would not fit in Coach's Smith's plans.


You've got the wrong player .... Hayhurst has not and is not considering leaving.

Exactly. I did not start that rumor. If it was not true, all the better.

It would not surprise me if he does, but he has to produce also.

BTW, besides for Jon Bendorf, Kraig Nienhaus's son Nash is on that All-Star team.

New blueliners Nash Neinhaus, Michael Mannara and John Stampohar all impressed, and the trio of new faces all provide offensive firepower. http://www.muskegonlumberjacks.com/news_article/show/798223?referrer_id=877108

I think that Herbst20 posted a while ago that he will have trouble making the team because Muskegon has a lot of returning defenders.

Lincoln does not Muskegon. They had only 4 returners & traded 1 of them this morning.Looking into this a little more, Musk. did have 3 others that played some games for them last year at D so maybe that’s what herby was alluding to.

That is a lot considering how much turnover there is in the USHL. It's not important really, and trading one is a good sign. Also, there is no indication that we are interested in Nienhaus.
