They need someone that can go to the net and get some goals. Last year nobody would go hard to the net and everyone was content with taking shots from outside.
I think Ness was with Fairchild and both are too undersized. They need to be paired with more of a stay at home d-man.
Is Schmidt playing next year? I don't like seeing Lucia bringing in these guys early from high school. They need more seasoning before they can make any impact.
White actually played pretty well towards the end of the season. I'm excited to see what he can do next year.
Agree and hopefully that's what Barriball and maybe someone like Bjugstad or Ambroz brings next year. You don't need all size, but you need some physicality and the U missed that last season.
Ness was only with Fairchild during the PP for part of the year although I do agree with what you wrote.
Schmidt will be playing next year at the U along with Mark Alt.
