As a huge Fighting Sioux Hockey fan, I have to ask a question. Is our recruiting to good? We keep getting these players that are obviously destined to go pro like Nelson. The obvious upside is these guys are great players, the downside is they leave early all the time for the NHL. They are at UND long enough to show us what they are capable of but not long enough to really develope the entire team into one that will win the National Title. Guys like Ben Blood, Evan Trupp, Brad Malone, and Mario just don’t come around enough. Thank you to Rowney and MacWilliam for staying. Hopefully Knight and Kristo follow suit. Would have been really nice to have Nelson come back for at least one more year to see what they really could have done with all the returning injured players.

Does anyone actually believe that all the hockey players who show up at universities, play a couple years, and head off to the NHL, are students?
