I mean it's a year out so I have no idea how things will go. I'd at least hope that Skjei gets a full time role with the Gophers by next season and plays every weekend.
I called these guys locks back early in June.
I specifically said Skjei and Matteau were debatable and that they clearly were as they didn't make it. Whoops! Heh Bonney called me out on it to, so credit there. Still, they were pretty much the final cuts and the rest were spot on. Instead of calling them locks I'll call this group the core of the next team.
I don't expect the bold guys to be released.
I don't know if I'm just crazy, or if there really is a clearer core group of players this year? I'm probably crazy.
