The interesting fact is after it was announced in the 2nd intermission Byfuglien played the entire 3rd on the wing.

Presume the contract starts this season with the expectation it will slide a season when he doesn't play 10 games?

Why? You can always go back to school. If he's good enough to play pro there's no reason not to.

I think that's more to do with the fact that we have absolutely no one past Wheeler on the right side. You could tell Buff wasn't too thrilled being put in that position in the post game interview.

It will not slide if he plays 6 games. They will only burn a year if they're absolutely forced to. He won't play the first few games at least.

How often does anyone actually go back to school and/or earn as good of an education as they would have while younger? Let alone get the same experience that college brings. I know personally I can see the changes in myself from when I was a Freshman to when I graduate soon.

We often see these guys enter the NHL still too immature to handle what they are being asked to do.

Again, this means nothing about Trouba persay. I expect him to be great, but if given the choice I'd rather go the Shattenkirk route than the Trouba route personally.

Exactly. The team is getting no offense and Noel was just trying something to provide any kind of offensive spark. That, and the fact that there has been no scoring from any line but #1.

After the Kevin Ware and Marcus Lattimore injuries, I can't ever blame a "student-athlete" for taking the money when it's there.

You also get a lot of life experience playing in the NHL. The kid is ready and even 3 years on a ELC will more than equal what he would earn in the real world with a degree.

most of these top-ranked kids arent going to college for school, they're going there for hockey development and the 'college experience'.

Jacob Trouba, at times, has already looked head and shoulders over the peers in his age group. He has looked flat out dominating occasionally too. Here's to hoping he lives up to all the hype because he looks likes he's going to be a keeper long term.

For the seven Jets fan who don't know who he is, you'll love him in no time ha.

I still don't understand how he fell all the way to 9th overall. Wouldn't be surprised to see him turn into a realllllly good #2 d-man.

I don't think someone with the surname Trouba would really need a nickname when you think about it.

Man, I wish we had a guy like Trouba in our system. Jets fans have got to be super excited right now.

I had Trouba as my #2 D in the 2012 draft, stand by that.

If all goes according to plan for him, he'll never "have" to go back. He'd basically be set. I'd rather have the chance to play pro hockey than get the college experience.

He (Dumba) is gonna have to develop his hockey IQ a lot more because at his size, I don't see his physical game translating to the NHL very well either. He'll have to rely on his puck-moving ability and solid shot from the point if he wants to make the NHL. If he improves his defensive game I think I can see him taking over Gilbert's spot on the 2nd pairing in a few years.

So the thing that I think maybe you're missing here and why you would question why anyone would leave school early is this, say you wanna be a fireman. You've wanted to be a fireman since you were 6 years old everything you've done since then has been in the hopes to achieve your dream of becoming a fireman it's the reason you went to school in the first place. So you're in school and you already know you could go and do it now you're ready you've known what you need to and the local firehouse knows this and recognizes this and they've contacted you and said hey you don't need to finish school you've already met all the requirements. Now you can stay in school even though your dream is on hold, life the college life and the firehouse will still be there, but this is your dream you've worked for it all your life. Now picture this not only will your skills not improve anymore the ones relative to living your dream as a fireman but while you're in school many many other young firefighters will come out and take jobs, sure you'll still get your opportunity and can still become a fireman but you might never become the one that you could've been you may have just missed your shot at your best opportunity.

Now ask yourself why exactly would they stay in school when their dream job is waiting for them right there in front of them.
