From a program prospective with the proposed rule, a new recruit (no penalty)> transfer (first year ineligible)>> grad transfer (2nd year loss of player and scholarship). If I were a coach, I would much rather take a transfer that has to sit out a year, but can still practice than a kid who can play right away and lose a scholarship for the next season. This makes grad transfers undesirable.
Above is a report from the NCAA about grad transfers. They are worried about "...534 graduate transfers identified in the 2017 Division I academic performance data out of nearly 110,000 Division I student-athletes, which equates to just under one-half of 1 percent."
A brief update from the "Where Are They Now?" files:
Eli Vlaisavljevich is an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics at Virginia Tech.
Brad Stebner has also made it big, Emergency Medical Resident in Kelowna.
Love to see the college hockey guys make it big outside the game as well!

Next JSH show?
Oh wait! The NCAA doesn't care about student athletes and only cares about $$, programs that generate $$, and accommodating "amateur" athletes who can generate $$.
As stated, that is why I like Tech. They seem to care about students.
We have a new commitment for this fall: Logan Ganie, a point-per-game forward for Spruce Grove (AJHL) who turns 20 this summer.
I am relatively certain that Gavin Gould is no longer a Husky.
I don't think you can win with a team full of Brices and Polglazes, but we have some players and recruits who do seem to be more of a complete package. Guess we'll have a better idea how well it's working out when this past season's freshmen are seniors.
