I think it depends on the player.

Of course it is sometimes hard to predict what will happen after someone gets to campus, but good recruiters (Slaggert is certainly that, and not just because he has long gotten good players to come to Notre Dame) can usually figure out what personalities will mesh well.

Sometimes talent isn't worth it. Kyle Palmieri is a good example. Probably one of the 2 or 3 most talented players to ever skate for the Irish (maybe more NHL goals than any other ND product or is that still Poulin?) but he didn't want to be here. Didn't help us when he was here, didn't miss him when he was gone.
