Bite your tongue!

They still suck, they still suck, they still suck!

I don't like it believe me but they've gotten some nice commits recently and I (unfortunately) feel that booting hill and adding guentzel has given them some serious momentum in the recruiting game...

I'm hoping the sophs can pull UW into a top 5 finish...I'm getting a bit apprehensive to be honest

No need to encourage positivity in the fan base of our western neighbor, even if it MIGHT be true what you are saying. They are all so cute when they are on the ledge, contemplating what to do.....

I'm saving my anger, my hatred and rage for the two threads that will matter most;) Rats @ Wisconsin, Wisconsin @ Rats!

Last I checked, one of your recruits (Kerdiles) is ripping it up for the NTDP and you have two outstanding freshmen goaltenders, so I wouldn't get too down.

Gabe Grunwald has finally surfaced...


"I will be playing on a team very soon and have been offered to sign with some teams in the OJHL, some teams in the CJHL and some teams in the NAHL. I will make the decision this weekend as to which team would be a best fit for me."

2013 goalie recruit Gabe Grunwald will be playing for the Michigan Warriors in the NAHL.

Apparently the head coach there Moe Mantha is buddies with Eaves and played in the NHL.

I'm just happy Grunwald has found a home, I was concerned when he wasn't on a roster but showed up in an OHL camp.

Did he actually go to an OHL camp? If he did what, if any, impact does that have on his NCAA eligibility? I hope that he didn't play in any exhibitions?

Him going to an OHL camp has no ramifications as long as he paid his own way there. He did not play in any exhibitions so his NCAA eligibility is 100% intact.

What's happened to Corbin McGuire? Is he going to end up being Wisconsin's equivalent of BC's Tifenwerth? He's stagnating in the EJHL - not exactly the USHL if you knwo what I mean.

Hard to say, I really, really liked him at select 15's but that was a few years ago. He's been pretty average in the EJHL this year. The Badgers don't graduate a forward and bring in Kerdiles and Zulinick...I'd bet my house that McGuire spends another year in junior hockey.

Gabe Grunwald is officially on the Michigan Warriors roster in the NAHL now. Talked to someone more in the know than me and got this report. "Talked to an OHL scout and he said that Grunwald is "very very raw". Looks like the NCAA route is a good idea for him."

He went on to say that it wasn't a negative thing, but thinks that Grunwald in two years when he comes to Wisconsin should be very solid.

Also remember that Grunwald will be a freshman when Rumpel and Peterson are juniors.

Good to see the goalie classes get back on track.

What you guys are going through reminds me a lot of what the Gophers went through at the beginning of their down-turn.

Youngstown (USHL) forward Ryan Belonger from Green Bay has committed to Northeastern. He had visited UW in the past.

New recruit Jake Linhart is playing in Madison this weekend. His Chicago Mission team takes on Team Wisconsin U16's at 1:00 PM Saturday afternoon at the Eagles Nest in Verona. They will take each other on again Sunday morning at 10:45 at the Oregon rink.

Some other kids to watch in those games are Nick Schmaltz (brother of Jordan) who is committed to North Dakota, he plays for the Chicago Mission team with Linhart. Anders Bjork is from Mequon and plays for the Mission as well.

For the Team Wisconsin guys look at Luke Davison (Badger commit Tim's little brother), Cooper Watson (Ohio State recruit Cliff's brother), Keegan Ford, Matt Berkovitz, Jason Reynolds and Brett Gruber.

Looks like Corbin McGuire has been traded from Springfield (EJHL) to Jersey (EJHL).
