Sophomore will lead to more time and more responsibilities.

Add Noreau. Size and has worked on skating. Hopefully can become a bottom pairing player at some point. Him/McIlrath can bring some snarl back on D like when Sauer made the team. All good teams have somebody like that on defense.
Who are the Gophers D that are graduating? I didn't like Skjei's play last year in bits and pieces of the 3 games (lol) that I saw of him. Concerned about ice time like last year, especially since they have all state star high school dman Tommy Vanneli joining the team.
