Team USA wins gold at WJC....how will this impact their teams in the 2nd half?
First off, congrats to Team USA, and especially to Zach Parise winning MVP honours.

With the NCAA players returning to their respective NCAA teams, in what ways do you see the experience impacting their teams?

Will Montoya be able to get Michigan back to near or at the top of the CCHA?

Will Zach Parise and Brady Murray continue the magic that they and Brandon Bochenski produced prior to the WJC?

Any surprises as a result of the WJCs?

Your thoughts

Hopefully, all come back energized and full of life, ready to help their teams and push them to new heights. But they could just as well suffer a letdown from so many games in a short time.

I would think it would only help each player's team to have them back, and with this wonderful experience included in the season.

As a Sioux fan, that's what I'M hoping for, anyway! ;)

Well I know DU will welcome Carle back with open arms. DU's blueline has been decimated with injuries.

Michigan gets Montoya, Hunwick and Tambellini back at the right time--the CCHA race starts to pick up and the Wolverines are stuck in the middle of the pack, yet only a couple of points behind the first place teams (this weekend's opponents Ohio St., and MSU?)...How Montoya plays after a sensational showing in the WJC is a huge factor for the Wolverines.
