Got a chance to see some prospective recruits this week when Benilde-St. Margarets played St. Cloud Tech. The Badgers have talked with Christian Horn and Grant Besse from BSM before and Besse was in for a visit during the Gopher series.

They are playing tonight against Hill-Murray and you can watch the game online HERE. (http://www.foxpreps.com/dpp/video_archive/Getting-in-the-Zone)

If you watch the game, keep an eye on these players:

F-Horn (#21) Senior
F-Besse (#12) Junior
F-Labosky (#27) Junior
F-Hale (#9) Sophomore
D-Glover (#8) Sophomore
D-Collins (#25) Sophomore

FYI, Chris from Western College Hockey ranked the top Minnesota high school kids today.

He had Horn (#3 overall senior), Besse (#7 overall junior), Labosky (#27 overall junior), Hale (#10 overall sophomore), Collins (#13 overall sophomore), Glover (#3 overall sophomore).

Sounds like Tim Davison is in the hospital getting an IV. His brother said on twitter that he's super sick. Hopefully it's not serious.

Also Gary Shuchuk is in Waterloo tonight to watch Omaha vs Waterloo. I'm sure he's there to see Schulze but also a host of prospects from Waterloo, including Ian McCoshen.

re: McCoshen...maybe Gary can in his ear a bit about UW for 2013?

Yeah, I'm guessing that had a lot to do with why he chose that game to attend last night.

Nice.

Was he ever on record commenting about the logjam at D this year and his decision to stay in Waterloo this year? I'm trying to gauge the degree to which we should have seen this coming.

Minnesota really didn't want him anyway.

I think Minnesota would have loved to have had him, but A) he always wanted to go to UW and B) there is room for him to come in and play at UW next year and not at UMN. Great get for UW.

No, his public quotes were "I didn't think I was ready for that,'' he said. "I'm not ready physically and I'm not ready mentally.''

Which I know has a lot of truth to that. He really did feel the need to mature. But it was clear his PT would be limited this year. There was even talk about a possible redshirt. It was a good idea for him to go to Waterloo for a season.

This have any implied implications for what ramage may do after the season?

Maybe, maybe not. I honestly don't know. I've gone back on forth on guessing if he'll sign or not.

Seniors: Ramage?
Juniors: Simonelli, Faust, Drake
Sophomores: Daly, McCabe
Freshmen?: Schulze, Wittchow

That's 8, where you would like to be going into a season. I guess that number depends on if you could Hartzog as a forward or a defenseman.

I wouldn't put Ramage at the same level as some of his predecessors, but past precedent says that he's unlikely to come back.

I would agree with that general sentiment. Although I'm still not sure. I struggle with this.

Predicting early departures is a bit like nailing Jello to the wall.

A bad analogy is like a leaky screwdriver.

(Not that yours was bad...I just really like saying that :) )
