Well there are only so many spots. We fill up with older players that played lots of junior. Walters is local and ready to play D1. He would be a four year player. I'd still rather have all the others coming in in front of him. Walters is not a role player so i do not count the depth guys. Just Ambroz, Condon, Haula and Bjustad.
If Walters has a decent D1 career. He will be just another guy that Lucia let get away. Still had they brought him in and he is not up to speed. The masses would have called for an older USHL player.
Bottom line. Lucia needs to win as there is so much ammo in all directions as to what he has done wrong.
