I was thinking the same thing, though I'm hopeful he'll end up in Madison.

Another thought I had, would Eaves encourage/want this kid to accelerate his education and come in in 2011 instead to increase his chances of being a Badger and not an Oil King? Not even sure if Canadian kids ever do this, I know it happens w/ USHL/NTDP kids (Seth Ambroz, Michael Mersch, Jake McCabe, etc) on occasion.

The kids you have mentioned were accelerated for different reasons. Mersch and McCabe were young for their age if that makes sense. As NTDP kids, they were a grade behind most of the players they were playing with. They would have aged out of the NTDP program before they graduated high school.

Ambroz is simply a physical freak of nature.

Excellent work, Chuck. I don't know how you do it, but if we ever meet, I'll buy a pop!

Not to open a wound, but I was watching the Memorial Cup (replay from Sunday) along with that "other" disappointing game last night. I just don't see it. I realize that some of the MJ boys may be younger, but I'm 100% positive any NCAA championship team would beat the living snot out of the Memorial Cup winner. Keep that Silverback pipeline flowing.

I think "Z" needs to come here. Give me his cell number.

I realized that Chuck on the NDTP kids, couldn't think of any other examples though off the top of my head. Pointing out that it does happen, reasons aside.

I've never seen Ambroz play, but I hope he plays one season w/ minny and then decides to sign after he is drafted in 2011. No reason for him to stick around college hockey too long.

Great work as always Chuck. Thanks!!!

Hopefully Mr. Zengerle can help Morgan Z keep focused on the NCAA route with a phone call or two.

Michaelson sounds like an outstanding young talent. C'mon Mr. Butters (start choppin) this could be your first big-time get for UW;)


... if Zengerle sticks around for 3-4 years UW could have the killer Z!'s on one line???? Zulinick, Zengerle, Zach Stepan?

If Zengerle is here in three years, and we bring in that 2012 class of Zulinick, McGuire, Kerdiles, Schmaltz, and one or both of Michaelson/Stepan, we're going to be scary good.

Normally I would agree with you in any other year but there is no way Boston College Beats that Windsor Spitfire Team... They are just plain scary... Muse may be a better goalie then Grubauer but but they way they transition and the speed they have... it pains me to say but BC would prob be in for a long night unless thay played the game of there lives...

Wisconsin native and potential recruit Jarrod Rabey made the Indiana Ice (USHL) roster.

Rabey, a BIG but mobile defenseman played for the Milwaukee Jr Admirals last season.

Big Canadian-loving Pierre McGuire? His real name's Regis and he's from New Jersey. :D
