This whole Hockey Summit thing is a joke. As these guys meet the blood letting continues for College Hockey (see Nick Quinn). It would seem he is on his way to the O. Doesn't his dad run some hockey skill camp in Canuckistan, most likely pressure from that end to stay in Canada. I think you're going to see coaches stopping focusing on the blue chippers who will most likely bolt and turn to kids who intend on being part of the university experience. Paul Kelly not be invited to that joke of summit is not encouraging. NCAA has to address this issue in some way, recruiting rule changes, etc.

That was why Quinn was cut. He thought that he would be allowed three, but he wasn't.

Does anyone know what schools are in the hunt for Saponari?

The Saponari that was chucked from BU? I don't know much about him, but to get chucked from BU takes a lot!! That's a preety big red flag if you ask me.

Yes, he was cut after he being paraded into town as one of Monty's cherished pre-draft tenders. Hence the insult.

I would disagree with the "cut" assertion. The following quote is from Monty re: Quinn departure from DFS. "We weren't the only team to have this happen to," Montgomery said. "It's an unfortunate situation, and I feel bad about it, because we had big plans for Nick." The Quinn family may have taken it this way but realities of the situation seem to contradict that he was cut. Just saying

Not sure but of course going to USHL keeps this option on the table.

"Cut", "released", "let go" label it anyway you like. Bottom line is Monty had three guys to choose from and the one kid Monty knew he'd only have for one season got the boot. The cold, business side of hockey.

I am pretty sure that it was mentioned in the Dubuque paper a while back.

That's him...that's why he is "rehabbing" in the USHL. Reports are that Atlanta folks recommended Dubuque to him. Anyone's guess as to what he does next...if he lights up the USHL this year, as many think he will...who knows

"Saponari will play this coming season with Dubuque of the USHL, as the Thrashers helped point him in that direction. He could have opted to play as an over-ager in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, but by playing in the USHL, he retains NCAA eligibility to play at another school in the 2011-12 season. (Saponari said his older brother will finish his education at BU, but not play hockey.)"

And CH has removed him from our list http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0AoPLTHefMmmTdEw4QWgxUjdKLTB0MEk3VTFLdlBOa Hc&gid=1. That means that he most likely he will be going to another college.

RC is correct. It just dawned on me when I posted this today.

Is this more corny than "Without a Pirri"?
