Well the gophers got bigger on the blue line.

Blake Thompson a 91 born is listed 6'4 231 played 3 full USHL.

Chris Rial a 90 6'5 205 played 2 full NAHL

I doubt we see alot of these guys. To go along with Helgeson, Alt and Parenteau we could have a very physical top 5.

Maybe tDon has learned a bit. Its nice to get the hot shot recruits but ultimatly D wins championships. Geting older 4th liners and 5-7 d man is nice to have.

Taylor Mason wears the C. Hardest worker on the team without the C. Should be an animal next year.

No fianl choice for Mario Lucia yet. Hope he comes here. We could use a big two way swing guy. Maybe Tony will talk to him and convince him to stay at home.

Eary line guesses?

Bjugstad- Buddish- Ambroz throw your big boys at em and see if they can handle it.

Haula- Hansen- Matson Hard workers and smart. Could play against other teams top lines and force the other line to play solid two way hockey.

Condon- Larson- Rau throw some speed out there. Not a line to forget about either.

Sacchetti- Issackson- Boyd Just a 4th line. Really the best talent left.

Leaving Serratore and Gardiner to break in. If anyone slips up a bit either of them are in, tDon seems to have learned more is better. He knows every game is a potential contract extension or a firing. Hard to fire a guy that makes the NCAAs. A no brainer if we do not. If anyone does not have it, they are out.

Larson- Miller. Will play here and there becasue of injury or WJC departures.

Alt- Helgeson
Holl- Marshall
Thompson/Parenteau- Schmidt/Student

Might split up the top 4. Just to mix and match size a bit.
