That's a different John Mitchell that plays for Toronto. I think he's Canadian and played Juniors. The Badger Mitchell is a home grown player.

The fans on the Badger boards, who usually know player movements before the players themselves, were all over the Erstad situation in September. It's too bad from a fans standpoint because he is the type of player they love in Madison and it will surely delay his development, but no one really held it against him because Madison didn't seem like a good fit for him. After Hagemo, Gagner and Wiercioch UW fans are pretty used to high profile verbal commitments bailing.

Yeah, RabidHusky, the media is not showing any love for St. Cloud. I like INCHs assessment better (I think they come here to read our posts for their material, personally). If the defense is reliable 2nd in conference wouldn't be out of the question.
