On the scoresheet I have from the Adrian-U-18 game, at the U-18's home arena in Ann Arbor, they list the commitments the players have made. The space after Saad's name was blank. He was one of two or three that were uncommitted in October.

Here's where I mentioned it back in November (http://board.uscho.com/showpost.php?p=4438793&postcount=35)

The one you're going to love (and the rest of the league is going to hate) is Jared Tinordi. He's huuuge. Good freaking grief.

Ian Cole talks about (http://interact.stltoday.com/blogzone/morning-skate/uncategorized/2010/06/more-comments-from-the-blues-top-defensive-prospects/) some of his initial experiences in pro hockey and what he expects come training camp.

Congrats to Jarred Tinordi. Right behind Sheahan to the Canadiens.

Great move by Cam Fowler. Jobbing Notre Dame really paid off on the draft.
As much as I'd love to pile on here, coming to Notre Dame didn't work out too well for Sheahan either. Fowler was 3rd in the preseason NHL CSS ratings, and Sheahan was fifth.

Great move by Cam Fowler. Jobbing Notre Dame really paid off on the draft.

I'm not sure I even understand the sentiment behind this post. Would it have been better to see Fowler at Notre Dame, even though he was conflicted about college to begin with and had feelings all along that he didn't need the different opportunities that Notre Dame would provide? I posted long ago that I don't want anyone on my team that isn't completely d a m n sure they want to be here. We had more than enough of that last season. And to be honest, I'm not sure Fowler possessed the emotional maturity to deal with the rigors of the student part of student-athlete. Not a recipe for success when Notre Dame is your choice for an NCAA destination. As for his draft stock falling -- if that is your point -- he did manage to be picked pretty early, even if he fell a few spots. Drafts and pre-season rankings are hardly exact sciences. A year ago I think the consensus for Fowler by most analysis I saw was somewhere early in the first round. I would say first half of the first round qualifies.

Congrats to Riley Sheahan and Jarred Tinordi. Can you imagine seeing those two trees skating around the ice at the same time? Trying to create time and space against them will hopefully be difficult.

In listening to Tinordi's interview on my XM radio yesterday, it doesn't sound like Notre Dame is a done deal. He basically said that he will do what Montreal tells him, etc

Is Jackson the only college coach at the draft? I think he has been attending the last few years, watching his recruited players like a hawk, trying to shield them from the major juniors.

Brian Rust goes 80th to the Pens and Kevin Lind goes in the 6th round to the Ducks.

I would doubt that Coach Jackson is the only college coach there, considering he seems more "okay" with players leaving school early to go pro than some coaches (Coach Berenson springs to mind...).

...The known dates are in bold. The educated guesses in italics. If anyone has a more educated guess, feel free to alter this...

October:
8 Icebreaker Tourney vs. Holy Cross in St. Louis
10 Icebreaker Tourney vs. BU/UW in St. Louis
14-15 LSSU
22-23 ? (the only thing I can come up with is an OOC opponent at home although WMU is also available)
29-30 WMU (I'm guessing home Friday, away Saturday due to FB)

November:
5-6 @ BG
12-13 @ Michigan
19-20 MSU
26-27 @ NoDak

December:
3-4 @ Miami
10-11 NMU
29 Canisius

January:
1 Shillelagh Tourney vs. Brown
2 Shillelagh Tourney vs. BU/MSU-Mankato
7-8 @ NMU
14-15 UA(F)
21-22 @ OSU
28-29 Miami

February:
4-5 bye (or maybe even the USNTDP boys)
11-12 BG
18-19 @ FSU
25-26 WMU (again, I'm guessing away Friday, home Saturday)



Note the mid-week post-Xmas pre-Shilellagh Tourney date. Never expected that one...

Okay, the Cubs just blow. 9 runs in one inning...and 8--eight--of them unearned?!

So I was thinking that with Canisius coming in to South Bend for one game, that means ND has only one other game to schedule (unless they also play a game against the USNDTP which counts as an exhibition). Makes me wonder if BC is coming into town in October. ND went out there 2 times in a row. Why couldn't they come here 2 times in a row?

Just speculatin'.

I think the game in December with Canisius has as much to do with Jackson not wanting a 3 week break between games as much as it does getting to the max allowable games. This will help keep the team focused over the break, something that has been a problem.

Brett Lebda (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/story/2010/07/07/sp-lebda-leafs.html?ref=rss) joins fellow alum Christian Hanson on the Maple Leafs.


The Toronto Maple Leafs signed unrestricted free agent defenceman Brett Lebda to a two-year contract Wednesday.

The 28-year-old native of Buffalo Grove, Ill., recorded one goal and seven assists in 63 games with the Detroit Red Wings last season.

Lebda, a five-foot-nine 195-pounder, has 68 points (18-50) and 201 penalty minutes in 326 career regular season games, all with Detroit.

He has 10 assists and 40 penalty minutes in 62 career playoff games.

News of Riley Sheahan at Wings camp popping up on various Detroit media. Here's (http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/sports/first-round-pick-sheahan-joins-fellow-prospects-at-red-wings-rookie-camp) one with accompanying video.

Sort of wondering why no one is commenting on the word that Palmieri has reportedly not been kicked out of school or off the hockey team (yet). I posted a few times that as last season wore on I was less than happy with the way the coaching staff had been handling the numerous issues the team faced. Either way I just hope they know what they are doing with this one.

We still will have to wait (likely until the beginning of the season) to find out what kind of discipline Jackson believes is warranted for both Sheahan and Palmieri. I'm not opposed to second chances, but not a fan of 4th and 5th chances.

I'm going out on a short limb and guessing Riley Sheahan is benched for the opening weekend. If Kyle Palmieri doesn't leave school and is not kicked off the team, I'm guessing he's not dressing for the first month anyway.

That would be my punishment. Keep in mind I taught alternative ed and in all my years gave an inch only twice that both times turned into a mile, so I'm not prone to being lenient. (One of those students eventually straightened out and graduated, the other is locked up.) While Palmieri seems to have the contrition down pat, I'm an unusually good judge of character and there's something about him that doesn't fit a Jeff Jackson-led team.

This should be it now. Not sure about the home-and-homes though. And it's still unknown who the OOC opponent in October is. I'm still guessing BC. ;)
