In yesterday's Islanders prospect scrimmage, the Rakshani led White team won the game 6-5. Matt Donovan had the hardest shot in the skills contest--95 mph, which out paced Scott Mayfield's 89 mph for Blue.

Jason Zucker with a goal at the 1st scrimmage in the Wild's Development Camp. Also an interview: http://video.wild.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=845&id=120780

I was at the Wild Development Camp scrimmage on Saturday and Jason Zucker looked VERY impressive. The kid is poised for a HUGE season this year. He and Mikael Granlund were arguably the best players on the ice.

The faster he is out of there the better his development will be in the future.

I agree with JDUBBS, I'm expecting JZ to have a big year, too. And reading that Beau Bennett has pumped himself up to nearly 200 pounds leads me to believe he'll have a very big year as well. He was a bit disappointing last year, getting hurt early and in comparison to Zucker. But he's gonna be murder in the corners and in front with the extra strength. And having those two on the PP will be fun to watch.

OK, now I'm starting to get excited!! It once again seems like we are loaded!!! I hope this Finnish goalie turns out to be a stud! Were you guys impressed with his numbers? I've never been very good at interpreting goalie numbers. On another note, is anyone sad about us leaving the WCHA? I'm surprised at the lack of chit chat on this. It sure will be a loaded division! :eek:

I think it developed so quickly most of us are trying to process the news and what it means, both for DU and the rest of college hockey. It's two years down the road. I'm betting there will be a bazillion posts on this subject between now and then. :D

From what I know, the whole "Super Conference" idea is NOT something that just appeared before us on a whim...however the actual teams involved were kind of a surprise and definitely not the envisioned "perfect" conference that was wanted. That's about all I can say about this inevitably divisive decision our program (and the others) took...Definitely an interesting development for the sport we love.

The relevant officials have obviously been discussing it for quite some time. Us civilians seemed to have gotten on to it much later. That may or may not have included you. :) Like anything else, there's concern, if not fear, about the unknown. If I was a fan of a remaining WCHA team, I'd resent the heck out of DU and the rest.

There doesn't seem to be as much resentment of the Gophers and Badgers, probably because a BTHC makes a certain amount of sense.

What I take away from this is that DU is willing to take a chance to remain one of the elite teams in college hockey. And that's a good thing. For too many years we schleped along, content to put generally average teams on the ice, and it wasn't pretty. The Gwoz years have brought us an enormous amount of success, which we all want to continue. So we're taking a leap into the unknown to make that happen. Fingers crossed.

Hey, now, I grew up with a schlepping DU program with stories of a long-gone glory. :)

I suppose DU needed to do what they needed to do...Personally, I really do care that the DU program succeeds and if this is what it takes, then so be it...

That's exactly right. Whatever it takes.
