Saw Walsh play against Michigan in the 6-1 loss...needless to say Walsh wasn't much a factor. It seemed to me that Notre Dame were completely outgunned, and Walsh had little in the way of offensive pressure, and I can't recall him putting any shots on goal.

In terms of how Roche has been playing...he has been playing on a bit of a physical line and in terms of ability he is the most "gifted" offensive player on the line. What I've like most is that he's starting to use his skating ability to break in, and he's picked up his intensity level...battling for the puck more and looking a lot stronger on the puck.

Roche is not afraid to shoot the puck, though he doesn't have the greatest shot on the team (Would love to have MacArthur in the Rangers organization), but he is starting to battle more. He doesn't play penalty kill, but often ends up on the first team power play when Bourque shifts to the point.
