Grimaldi is still coming in, so I don't know what you are talking about.

Biggs and Murphy were 1 and 1a, but because Murphy seems like a tool I'm making Biggs #1. I'm not bitter. Not one bit.

DU's 2010 Recruiting Class was ranked #1 by INCH.

F Jason Zucker
D David Makowski
F Nick Shore
F Beau Bennett
F Dan Olszewski
F Jarrod Mermis
G Sam Brittain
F Justin Jones

I don't think there is any doubt that the incoming 2011 Recruiting Class will be ranked #1 now that both Miami & UND lost their top recruit to major juniors.

D Scott Mayfield
F Zac Larraza
D Joey LaLeggia
F Larkin Jacobson
D-F Wade Bennett
F Matt Tabrum
D Josiah Didier
F Daniel Doremus
G Juho Olkinuora
F Ty Loney

Both 2012 & 2013 look awesome so far.

I'm loving your most recent posts DG!!! 2 quick questions:

Where can we find out more info on these recruits, your blog?
Who bailed on ND and Miami?

Context would suggest this his ND refered to UND- was more just responding to his question. Sorry :)

The Redline Report (http://host.madison.com/sports/blog/article_b34c28dc-b16c-11e0-a980-001cc4c03286.html) ranked DU's recruiting class #3 behind North Dakota & Miami. DU usually doesn't do that well in the Redline rankings, which assess the NHL potential of the recruits down the road. That being said, after the rankings came out 1st round picks #15 (NYR) JT Miller went major juniors instead of NCAA & Miami's #20 (PHX-WIN) Connor Murphy did the same thing.

That would be like DU losing either Joe Colborne, Beau Bennett or Scott Mayfield. Its a big loss for your recruiting class and should propel DU to #1 in the INCH recruiting rankings.

It would be just like that if any of those 3 were as good as Miller or Murphy...;)

No worries on the UND front. Miller was not the top recruit for UND. Last year while playing on the same line for the USNDPT, Miller scored 15 goals...Grimaldi scored 39. IMO, Grimaldi is the top incoming recruit in the NCAA and I expect him to have a Zucker-like year for the Sioux. Not to mention two other top notch incoming forwards in MacMillan and O'Donnell along with dman Mattson. It won't be a big deal if DU gets the nod for #1, as they have a very good incoming class. UND's class is going to be very good as well...regardless of Miller's decision.

Miller was not the top recruit for UND.

Every knowledgable college hockey fan knows that.

Chris Knowlton's brother, Patrick, signed with the Colorado Eagles. He played at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.

This sounds familiar I know, but please wish your fellow DU fan and Captain of his summer lively hood luck as Irene approaches. The boat is secure but not hauled, taking a chance here that the cold waters of Maine will help weaken the storm. Tense times around here!! Oh, and go DU!!!!!

Fingers crossed. It's weakening. My guess is you'll be okay. By the time it reaches you, it doesn't look like there will be much left. Just to cheer you up, during the great Galveston hurricane of 1900, the worst natural disaster in US history, with a death toll far above 9/11, there was a story about a guy holed up in his house looking out the window and the storm surge was driving a LOCOMOTIVE right at his home!

Losing Murphy was a bigger blow than just in the class rankings. Miami will lose three of its top six defensemen after this season. Maybe it would be considered naive to think Murphy would have been on campus for more than a year, but he could've helped provide elite depth. Fortunately, the pipeline is by no means bare as Miami continues to demonstrate success on the recruiting trail as they have on the ice over the past 10 years.

yeah baby yeah!!! In the Irene front, nothing yet aside from rain. The wind should start around 4:00 pm. Can't wait to go down to the docks and watch the action! It has been downgraded to a Tropical storm, plenty of punch though. Hope I made the right decision not to haul!!!
