hey i'll take any amount of our prospects performing at the best they can and really enhancing their possible professional careers. this could give sather some fire power to really entice some team to possibly take a guy like rozsival off our hands next offseason. could sather make another gomez like trade next offseason but this time get an offensive player? i highly doubt that would be the case as in i dont think Rozy or Redden would have that high of a trade value, but if you add in some defensive prospects it could get interesting.
i was reading an article i believe on beyond the blueshirts that was about Pavel Valentenko being out for 3 months with a shoulder injury, also stated in there was that he has an out clause after this season and he might be looking to return to the states to pursue his NHL Dream. so we might have another 2-3 defensive prospects trying to compete for Roster spots in Ryan McDonagh, Pavel Valentenko and whoever else can come out of nowhere.
The best defensive corps in the WCHA should help an inexperienced goalie. Derek Stepan (along with Jason Gregoire) is one of the most underrated players in the league. The Badgers have role players back and don't forget about Ben Street's return.
