I really think with Strait, Shattenkirk, Cohen, Warsofsky, and Gryba all returning though, that this team could still be a contender next season. When 5/6 of possibly the best defensive corps ever assembled in college hockey are returning...well, you've still got one helluva defensive corps.
Yeah, I think the Avs will keep him and Shat at BU, they both could stand to learn a bit more and eliminate the basic mistakes from their game.

I'm not sure what more Strait has to learn tbh, he seems like he should jump, but I don't think he will.

I agree with what you said about becoming more defensive minded, Kieran played incredibly well this year and we got a lot of the D coming back.

The offense might be an issue, but with Bonino, Connolly, Trivino, and Saponari, they might have something to build on and Z. Cohen, Popko, and Perreira should be a killer 3rd line.
