For this kid, tho....his dream is to play NCAA hockey for the exact team he has verbally committed with...not just NCAA in particular..when he walked in the rink he got goosebumps...
all of this NHL talk is fine and dandy, and the O has proven that it is the best way to the promised land for the elite players....
But if you had a chance to live your dream....even if it isn't maybe the one that everyone else thinks you should have as your dream, would you not take it?
I hope he signs next year and is a Colt, but I can't say I disagree with any decision the kid and his family made. If it is what he wants to do...then to me that shows a good attitude and maturity.
Let's be honest...around here...OHL and the players have it pretty good (you all know what I mean). He has turned a lot down thus far to pursue HIS dream.
To play for UND is a big deal.
