Not for nothing, but I'd take him over both Weber and Subban any day of the week. Not overly impressed with either of them.

Damn we've got some high standards for prospect development

The Wisconson blogger was referring to the Pipeline blog. This same blogger(the original blogger) had reported McD was skating with his Wisconsin teammates in Madison earlier this month and he was in tremendous shape.

4. Ryan McDonagh-Defence-New York Rangers
Will the Rangers as Mcdonagh to leave Wisconsin after 2 years and turn pro? That's what I'm banking on with him on this list. The blueliner was involved in the trade that send Scott Gomez to Montreal and New York might want to get his pro career started. With Bobby Sanguinetti likely graduating to the big club this year there will be an opening on the blueline with the farm.

But McD had told Wisconsin HC Mike Eaves that he was returning for his junior year

Quote:
Defenseman Ryan McDonagh has given Wisconsin Badgers men's hockey coach Mike Eaves strong assurances that he intends to return for his junior season, a tone that isn't expected to change even though McDonagh has a new NHL address.

McD told the Minny paper this week he was staying in school

In May,McD was deciding his future

Quote:
Two years ago, the Montreal Canadiens made rugged defenseman Ryan McDonagh their first-round draft pick out of Cretin-Derham Hall.

McDonagh, the 12th overall pick in that draft, has played two solid seasons at the University of Wisconsin. Whether the 6-foot-1, 220-pounder turns professional could be determined in July.

McDonagh will participate in the Canadiens' prospects camp July 6-12 in Montreal. After that, he and the Canadiens will discuss whether it's time to turn pro or return to the Badgers

But he had already decided to return to school before the trade to the Rangers.

McD is staying in school this season.
