It would be nice to have McD's veteran presence for the younger guys, but at the same time the team isn't going to the top with him, so the extra ice time for guys like Springer, Little and incoming stud, Frankie Simonelli, would be beneficial in solidifying the D of the future (holy run on sentence, eh?). Without McD the backline still looks good with Gardiner, Schultz, Ramage, Springer, Little, Craig Johnson (hated to see him get shelved last year), Simonelli, Chase Drake...and I'm sure I'm missing someone.
The offense should at least be better than Mankato and AA's. Craig Smith, Jordy Murray, Derek Lee should put up some decent numbers. Incoming freshman Tyler Barnes, Jason Clark, 1st Star Zengerle and freshly stolen Matt Linblad have very nice offensive potential.
The team should be good enough to dash someone's playoff hopes in the WCHA tournament (like they did DU in '07). I have no doubt the team will be back on top in a couple years.
