    You can see the chip growing on Caufield's shoulder as this progresses. Good!

    Yep, that chip is getting huge ala Aaron Rodgers.
    EDIT.....well it's down to #15. It WILL be either "Les Habitants" or the Avs for sure.

    Well, he better polish up on his French-Canadian now!

    I don't think Cole has anything to prove, but I wouldn't be surprised if he puts up 40+ points with all the talent around him. Same with Alex.

    Caulfield Looking for the quickest route to nhl. Iíll be shocked if either he or Turcotte are not one and doneís.

    I also would not be shocked if one of them doesnít skate for UW in fall.

    Please tell me iím too pessimistic.

    The Montreal beat writer immediately began alluding to Major Junior as a quicker route to the NHL in his first article after the draft. I engaged him on Twitter and sent him a link on the rising number of NHL players coming from college. He came back and said college players take longer. I replied that college players are given longer contractually by the NHL and they don't have to be rushed. The Buffalo GM was just quoted as saying for the later rounds of the draft he prefers drafting college players since they hold their rights longer.

    At any rate, the beat writer (Stu Cowan) came back today in an article and said Montreal would let him choose and the team was quoted as saying they expected him at Wisconsin.

    Even if they are only here 1 year, it ill be a magical ride that we won't forget. And it will help the rest of the team elevate their play as they have to practice against/with these guys. I'm hoping Holloway is there 2 years, he may be a one and done as well if he puts up a lot of points/looks awesome this year, then gets drafted.

    He said that Major Junior is a quicker way to the NHL. And he is 100% correct. For many reasons. College players are almost always older when they go to the NHL. It will be interesting to see how the draft class from the US NTDP fair over the next few years. That is a large amount of data to analyze. It will be interesting to see how many of those drafted from the NTDP actually go to play one or 2 years of NCAA or go to Tier 1 Junior for a year. I think that the NHL teams still prefer to hae them develop for a year in Major Junior because of the more rigorous schedule. And, I can't help but wonder if a bunch of those kids drafted from the national team might be a product of a good system and they might have a little less luck transitioning their success at the next level. I could be wrong but it seems to be a bit too much talent coming from one program? Boom or bust?

    The CHL was brought up seconds after Caufield (and maybe Turcotte) was drafted. I don't recall if it was "Regis" (Pierre McGuire ) or somebody else. KEEP IN MIND this broadcast was simulcast with SportsNet in Canada. Whoever mentioned it was just performing fellatio on the Canadian viewers, knowing that there aren't many Americans watching. I remember thinking it was "Regis" because he does the same thing on the NHL Network Radio on SiriusXM; pandering to Canadians. He THINKS he's Canadian, but my Canuck friends want NOTHING to do with him either!

    The boys aren't going anywhere....at least for one year.

    If you're good enough, the NHL is taking you no matter your age, or where in the world you played.

    Yeah, I think the CHL adherents are a bit nervous with the rise of NCAA players making the Show.

    I should have known there was some hyperbole coming from hand writers about CHL and quickest path etc.

    This video seems to show LA fine with Turcotte at Wisconsin and Montreal OK with it. Some decent insight on players from scouts and front office staff as well.

    Re: Wisconsin Recruiting Vol. IV - It's all coming together

    Plenty of recent history of guys going to college, playing a season or two and making an NHL roster immediately. Even more so guys picked in the top half of the first round. Why would a couple of kids from Wisconsin and Illinois want to run around Ontario in buses when they can play basically in their backyard?

    I "went around the system" so you didn't have to subscribe, then I copied and pasted for your reading pleasure!


    By David Schoen Las Vegas Review-Journal

    Ryder Donovan and Michael Vorlicky have been nearly inseparable this week at Golden Knights development camp. But that wasn’t always the case.

    The University of Wisconsin recruits were bitter rivals in high school in Minnesota and almost came to blows after a high-profile incident last fall before working out their differences and becoming close friends. “For a while there, we were kind of at each other’s throats,” Vorlicky said Wednesday at City National Arena.

    Donovan, a fourth-round pick by the Knights in this year’s draft, was a forward for northern powerhouse Duluth East High School, while Vorlicky, who went undrafted, excelled on defense at storied Edina High near the Twin Cities.

    During a September matchup in the Upper Midwest Elite League before their prep seasons, Donovan and Vorlicky were battling in front of the net when chaos ensued. “I just ran him,” Donovan said with a laugh. “He tried breaking my wrist, just chopped me. We go in the box, and I try to joke with him and he’s furious, he’s chirping me.”

    And what about Vorlicky’s version of the story?

    “I was standing in front of the net and he kind of cheap-shotted me,” he said. “The play was still going on, but I got up and just went to look for him, and I gave him a pretty good whack across the wrists. I ended up getting kicked out of that game, actually, so it just kind of went downhill from there.”

    Not long after the incident, Vorlicky reached out to Donovan to squash their feud. Vorlicky committed to Wisconsin in January, and Donovan chose the Badgers in February after de-committing from North Dakota.

    They roomed together on campus this summer in Madison and were together in the locker room at Wisconsin when Donovan was selected by the Knights on Saturday with the No. 110 overall pick.

    “It was good to go through that because now it makes us kind of closer,” Vorlicky said. “I talked to him when he was going through his committing process, and we talked about the situation and kind of laughed it off, which was awesome.”
