Congrats to him though, and good luck.

One thing that helps is I think the program now is expecting to lose players after their third year when they are 1st or 2nd round picks, and are recruiting around it, and working with commits around it. Which kids are coming in as normal age freshmen, which are spending an extra year in the USHL, etc?

We worried where we'd be after Cal and Anders left in 2017. We worried when Oglevie and Gilbert left after their junior seasons. We worried what it would mean when Hinostroza took his point per game average away from a team that was no better than mediocre. In all those cases we were either better than the year before or at the very least still quite successful. We'll be all right, although I'm not quite ready to make the bold prediction I made after last year's loss in the title game!
