change in philosophy when it comes to recruiting for Jackson and the program. He wants the guys who will be here 3 and 4 years. I believe the best team the program has ever produced had 4 draft picks and only one player that had a real NHL career, Erik Condra. He was also young enough coming in that he wasn't drafted until after his freshman season, if memory serves, so coming into ND he was not a drafted player.

I wonder if what you pointed out about teams missing the NCAAs will be a long-lasting trend or just a blip?
