    The new Lucas worries me. If we were going to pick up decommit / castoff I would rather somebody who puts the puck in the net a bit more... One of the younger guys or Budy...

    So, looks like Herrmann is a replacement for BVR

    In his first season in the USHL, 18-year-old Lucas Herrmann is the Alternate Captain for the Madison Capitals. He plays center and left wing. He, along with fellow UNH commit Kalle Eriksson (D), play on the Capitals' first power play unit. He's scored 6 power play goals, a game-winning goal, and a shootout goal. His offensive specialty is play around the net, particularly in the low slot/crease area. He also plays on the Capitals' penalty kill. The 6'2", 187 lbs forward, plays a physical game and has accumulated 50 penalty minutes. Feature article including an interview coming soon.

    Sounds like a solid two way forward...much like Marcus Vela..

    Does the van Riemsdyk family have commitment issues, terminally restless, or what???

    JvR going directly to the NHL after 2 years? Bummed, but understandable.

    TvR going to the pros after 3 years AND a bad injury? Very understandable.

    BvR going to a rival school after 3 years, with no realistic hopes for a pro career??

    Methinks the "B" in BvR is going to stand for "Bandwagon" if this continues to play out ...

    It certainly seems like a bit of a lateral recruiting upgrade. I thought UNH needed/should look to add two, top-six type forwards this off-season and now with BVR's departure that is even more of a need (both to capitalize on next season and for the future). I think Herrmann is a real upgrade on guys like Miller and Cefalu - and while Vela was a far bluer-chip, I think he could match the type of career #17 ended up having. He looks like a nice piece on a third/fourth-line who can skate, defend, forecheck and mix it up, while chipping in offensively here and there. An Esposito or MacAdams type. He isn't a goal scorer, however - he never has been - and UNH needs guys (and, quite frankly, a depth of guys) who can fill it up.

    They could have accelerated a guy like Sweeney or Wazny and filled this role. The strategy heading into this off-season should have been to aim-high with available scholarship money, and if you can't land a high-end talent be willing to bank that money for a top talent in the future. Watcher may be on to something in Herrman being a quick strike to replace BVR who appears (all but) officially on his way out the door. If so, that makes sense. But I more potential prospects for this coming season adhere to the strategy I outline above. High-end now, first or high-end later, second...

    ---

    With BVR apparently on his way out - UNH's top-six (and overall goal-scoring), which already needed improvement, is looking even more thin...

    Crookshank - Pierson - Kelleher
    Stevenson - Blackburn - Grasso
    Herrmann - Engaras - Fregona
    Esposito - Sacco - MacAdams
    Sato/Cippolone

    This line-up is a stretch to generate much more, if any, offense than the team did last season and raises a lot of questions. Without getting into those questions here - adding a couple more talented bodies could slot a lot of players into more comfortable roles, build depth of scoring, spread the defensive attention around and much more. UNH needs to seriously look into accelerating Margel and targeting one of the high-end goal scorers left on the market. This would look a lot better...

    Crookshank - Pierson - Kelleher
    [Scorer] - Blackburn - Grasso
    [Margel] - Engaras - Fregona
    Hermann - Esposito - MacAdams
    Stevenson

    Re: UNH Commits & Recruiting: 2019 and Beyond

    As for BVR's departure - I wish him the best of luck and hope he finds the combination of graduate education/winning program he's looking for. He watched both of his brother's play on the big stage and I'd imagine he wants that opportunity desperately. On the ice, they'll miss him but he's hardly irreplaceable - even with the current F line-up - and may even open things (roster/$$$) up for UNH to get what they desperately need. Pure goal-scoring...

    Total speculation - I'd rank likely BVR destinations as follows:

    Providence
    Boston University
    Northeastern / Massachusetts

    Sets himself up for a better life with an advanced degree. Perhaps some scholarship $. Plays where he might better show case his skills. This is all conjecture.

    Or, maybe he figured that he might not crack the top six forwards in his senior year either, so see ya later.

    Or maybe the vR family's veneration of all things Umile did not extend to DU's hand-picked successor?

    So many questions, so many possibilities … so few answers. Does anyone do journalism any more??

    Changes to recruiting rules beginning May 1:
    1) No verbal commitments before August 1 of player's upcoming junior year of high school.
    2) Until January 1 of player's sophomore year in high school, coaches can't talk to him and unofficial visits are not allowed.
    3) Current players who have already verbally committed and are not yet sophomores in high school will not be allowed to have further contact with the college until January 1 of his sophomore year.
