Hockey media day was today and Cole mentioned a few nuggets iím sure everyone was wondering about.
MŁller will replace Hirose on the top line.
Another line will consist of Jagger Joshua, Josh Nodler and Sam Saliba, who will stay at wing.
Lethemon and DeRidder will continue to platoon the goalie position unless one of them outright takes it.
Cole expects the defense to be better moving the puck this year which will help put the offense in better position.
You can listen to the full interview at Spartan sports network. Itís in the ďsurround soundĒ section under the sports tab. Kinda tough to find.
Just to add a couple other points mentioned:
Green and White game today was Munnsters only due to construction.
Monday game against W Ontario is because an unnamed team scheduled for Saturday backed out and Western Ontario agreed to Monday.
Said moving Saliba back to the wing should make him more productive.
No mention of any Sophomores. I assume they will be the 4th line.
That leaves Mattson, Stachowiak, Goodsir, Esteves, Kamer, and Smith to fill out out the remaining forwards in a given night. I like Stachowiak. Goodsir was a regular last year and I think came on late in the season. Iíd like Mattson to show some more. His size is appealing and iím hoping he made big strides this summer. I am somewhat fond of Kamer and Smith and Esteves both have good speed. I imagine all of these players will be cycling in and out of the lineup each game.

I see Goodsir centering the 4th. Stachiwiak will probably be a regular with 2 others dressing each night.
I donít see either of the extra dmen dressing unless there is an injury to one of the top 6.
The home game against the Skunks is now listed as a TV game on BTN. The time is TBA, because in their infinite wisdom the Big Ten scheduled this game on the same day as the football game between the two schools.
Ah, the seasonís first gameday is finally here! Dreams really do come true.
Itís usually hard to glean much useful info from the exhibitions but itís always fun to get a live look at the team.
1. What will a top line look like
2. How ready are these freshmen? I've a sense that Nodler will be good, and Mueller has an impressive path pre-MSU, but Joshua could be an all-around force and put up some numbers.
3. How much has D improved. Probably the strength of the program this year.
Hirose certainly made the right decision: 2nd line on the Wings this year.
At least for the preliminary depth chart tonight, Muller is listed to take his place.
Go Green! Go White! Go State!

Alright, gathered a few thoughts. This exhibition was especially hard to gauge due to the massive lineup we fielded and the outrageous amount of special teams play. I was hoping for long stretches of even strength play to help get a feel for this team but alas.
We dominated an out matched WO squad. I did feel that offensively we got pretty loose in the 2nd period with lot of fancy, unnecessary passing and it resulted in some turnovers, blown scoring chances and transition scoring opportunities for Western. Other than that we controlled the puck and played well defensively. Cole Krygier and Rosberg really popped out to me with some nice plays at both ends of the ice.
MŁller fit in well on the top line. I think heíll be very good there and have a huge freshman year next to those two.
The remaining lines(4!) played well. I thought the 4th line of Lambdin, Goodsir and Kamer made things happen.
I did not notice Nodler and Jagger too much but I tend to lose focus and just follow the action as opposed to watching individual players.
I still really like Stachowiak. I hope his presence on the 5th line tonight is not an indication that he will be relegated to a a backup role. Heís got energy, some skill and throws the body around.
Both goalies played well.
Power play: meh; penalty kill: Pretty good.
