    USNTDP - a bunch of prima donnas?

    So...open up with your stories on these players.

    Wisconsin has Caufield and Turcotte who play like there are 5 pucks on the ice. To add insult to injury both of these guys hoot and holler after scoring on their own goalie in warm-ups.

    UW has had USNTDP players in the past and while there may have been some ego or sense of entitlement from them I don’t recall it being as bad as what we’re witnessing now.

    Is it just these two guys or is there a culture in Ann Arbor that cultivates this and coddles these kids allowing them to do what they wan when they want?...

    God how I wish Wisconsin had a Ryan McDonagh right now to put them on their arrogant asses.

    I think since they’re just a number to UW (look at how notoriously, excessively large their recruiting classes are) and the players return the favor, thinking of their next step in their career with little regard to the team/university. My theory. Q Hughes was a spitting image of that last year, though he’s doing well in NHL now
