Also wouldn't be surprised to see Carroll get a pro offer either.

I thought I remember seeing/reading something last year that Wright only intended on staying 4 years.

And remember, Todd is in his 4th year eligibility-wise but his 5th year of schooling. Same situation with Shutron, who is in his 3rd year of eligibility but his 4th year of school.

And we can't forget the head coach....I believe he is entering the final year of his contract this year.

With the roster cap I wonder if we will see more Lavigne/Thomas situations going forward where guys are basically red-shirting like they do in the US. Obviously the top players major junior recruits will be playing right away but I wonder if guys who have to sit out for a year (like Thomad and Lavigne) or the lesser major junior guys would start their schooling and practice with the team for a year with the understanding that they will be playing the following year. If any teams could convince guys to do that it could be pretty advantageous....having a guy who practiced with your team for a year to come in as a "rookie".
If there is a year to need a goalie this is the year. A good crop of goalies currently available especially in the WHL.
