Agreeded but hes a twig hope he gets a chance in the kings program with all the future and prospects there

I haven't seen any sign of Dylan Reese from Harvard signing with the Rangers yet. Has anyone heard anything there? I'd love to get this local product in a Penguins uniform.

As mentioned before SCSU G Bobby Goepfert will be available and the Pens have yet to sign Brown F Brian Ihnacak.

From what I've been able to gather, Reese and the Rangers are pretty far apart (salary-wise) on getting a contract done. You should check out the Rangers board, they've been talking alot about Dylan's situation over there.

To be honest with you, I'm not sure if Pittsburgh will sign Ihnacak. After having good freshman and sophomore years, Brian's struggled to put up the numbers the last two seasons and his play has been average at best. He's been in and out of the Bears lineup the last two seasons as well. Not a positive sign when the NHL club holding your rights is looking to may be add you to their (pro) mix.

Goepfert won't have any problems signing somewhere he is a very talented goalie that just wasn't in the best of situations. Ihnacak had a slow last two years and that may have had to with the fact that him and the head coach did not see eye to eye. I would of agreed with you that Pittsburgh might not want to sign him had it not been for the rookie camp where he performed very well. It will be interesting to see how he does at the main camp...

Lowell devils signed Jason Paige ( Notre Dame, mark pandolfo (former umass-lowell, played in Trenton ECHL last season), and Dave Caruso (former Ohio State goalie, played in ECHL last year).

Lowell Devils are the New Jersey Devils' AHL team. NJ Devils also own Trenton Devils (ECHL) where caruso is likely to play

I would love to be at that camp because Matt Greene is going to clean his clock for the cheap hit from behind that almost ended Robbie Bina's carreer with the SIOUX.

For drafted graduated NCAA seniors? Yes it is; after the deadline has passed they become free agents.

Jim O'Brien leaves the Gophers; signs a contract with the Sens. He'll likely be with Seattle (WHL) next season.

It just is so weird with how teams are. Calgary pracitally took kid napped Chucko. Then you have NJ. They leave Zajac, Parise, Martin, Gionta all alone. When most felt that Martin and Gionta could have benefited from a "more physical league." Colorado left Hensick alone. O' Brien gets rail roaded. I have no problem with him signing. But why go the WHL. Thats the part i have a problem with. Same thing with Lewis last year. Okposo would have gone to the AHL or NHL. So it is very different.

GMs are saying two things. They want to get thier players more ice time and want them to play in a tough league to devolp better. He cannot break through on a deep MN team. So we send him to a weaker team. Where he can play big minutes. IMO weaker teams = weaker leagues. Its a step down. O'Brien for the second year would have been one of the younger players in D1 hockey. Now he will be of average age.

Gopher you are turning it into another NCAA vs. Major Junior argument. The WHL is definitely not "weaker", even if they have teams where O'Brien can get more icetime. Pretty sure the WCHA has weaker teams that, hypothetically, O'Brien could also earn more icetime on. Doesn't mean the whole league is weak. The WHL is arguably the toughest junior league in Canada, and with a 68 game sched, where he'll get more time to develop. Nothing helps a player grow better than playing in games, and playing in all situations. I know the Minnesota's and ND's are some of the toughest rosters to gain ice, and yes, earning icetime develops a work ethic in a player. But if a guy wants to develop, he needs to play more than O'Brien was going to, all arguments about whether he deserves it aside.

Well said Pivot King.I've seen the Brandon Wheatkings play and I wouldn't say it is weaker competition than the WCHA and I'm a season ticket holder for the SIOUX.The one thing he will get better at than compared to college hockey and that's fighting which isn't a bad thing in my book.

If he wanted more ice time in college, he probably should have chosen one of the "weaker" teams in the first place then.
Doesn't matter though, he's gone, and except in terms of depth. It's not a big loss.

If guys like Fast, Williams, Lewis and now O'Brien just said. School is not my thing. The NCAA is not the end of the line. I want to focus 100% on hockey and not worry about being a student athlete so i left. I can see that. Maybe not like it but respect the truth.

To say i want more ice time. I want more playing time. Either earn it or do not complain. If you cannot cut it one league. Why would the same player be able to break through on another if it was not a step down. Teams like BC, BU, Mich, MN, NoDak all have players leave. For various reasons. That should just the top 10 or so NCAA as the best amateur teams around.

How much time was O'Brien getting or not getting at the U? Anyone know the stats? We roll 4 lines. He played as much even strength and short handed as any gopher forward. With 5 minutes left in our first NCAA game. O'Brien gets a goal from EJ and Peltier. We were down one goal. If we are going to roll 4 lines with 5 minutes left in a one and done game. Trust me we did it all year long.

Apparently there are not as many talented players infront of him on Seattle's roster, allowing him to come in and play more. It might be considered a step down in talent on that particular roster, but it's not a step down to go to the WHL.

Regardless, I also think he should have stuck with your Gophers, a top 5 program with a legit shot at winning every year, with 4 years to develop his skills and strength. A lot of times the players don't see it that way, prompting them to leave. It is crucial to build game skills between the ages of 16-22, you often don't see guys change their base skill levels after that, ie. guys don't become goal scorers at age 25. Apparently he'll get a chance to work on all parts of his game in real situations in Seattle.

Eighhhhhhhhhh, you can see it as lateral move mostly.
But he does get to spend his signing bonus right now though.
I really think NCAA and CHL have to have a face to face about players. From 16/17 year olds playing the NCAA card to get more from interested CHL clubs to 19/20 year old NCAA players signing pro contracts.
A little more has got to be done to protect the integrity of both NCAA and CHL.
