    My $.02 about the D.

    Graduating:
    * Grzelcyk

    Flight Risks:
    * Somerby (high)
    * Macleod (low-medium) -- I really hope he stays, but he hasn't played well and needs to play the way he did much of last season in order to regain a regular role.
    * Hickey (low) -- I think he needs at least 1 more year. Haven't seen his offensive game progress this year. Calgary has typically been more patient with the NCAA players they take in 3rd round (i.e. Gaudreau, Gillies, Jankowski). I also wouldn't be surprised if Hickey is next year's captain.

    No-Show:
    * Krys (low) -- There were some rumors circulating from Canada a while back that he might to go the Q, but nothing since. Won't assume anything until he's in the lineup opening night next season.
    * Fabbro (low) -- Getting him to commit was huge, but you never know. Also, won't assume anything until he's in the lineup opening night next season.

    Returning:
    * McAvoy -- He needs at least another year, probably 2. He's projected to go in middle of the 1st round, so it's more likely the team drafting him doesn't have an immediate need for him to fill.
    * Fortunato
    * Diffley
    * Switzer
    Excellent post. Thank you.
    It Happened!!!!

      McAvoy doesn't even turn 19 until December. He'd have 1.5 seasons at BU under his belt by the time he turns 19. Shattenkirk turned 19 in January of his Freshman year, so there's almost an entire age year (and year of development) difference between the 2.

      Yes. That's what I heard back in the Fall. But if he leaves, it's unclear whether if it will be to sign an ELC w/ the Islanders, or wait until August 15 to become a UFA (since he was drafted in 2012).

        The Hockey News on Fabbro

        If Somerby decides to return, which apparently is a real possibility:
        Hickey-Fabbro
        Krys-McAvoy
        Somerby-Diffley/Switzer/MacLeod

          Real possibility? Is that a personal thought or based on actual info? Of course if he returned he's a shoo-in for the C.

            Does anyone see him as an NHL-caliber player? I think he is a fine college defensive defenseman, but I don't think he was as good as Gryba or Strait. I don't know that he is any better than, say, Sean Sullivan?

              Size matters

              I think he's a better skater than Gryba (definitely not as good a skater as Strait) and his offensive game is improving. I think he could be a solid 5th/6th NHL D-man on the right team.

                  On the BU recruiting thread I would have expected this to be typed by Rogie.

                    Couple of reliable sources think so. And, definitely would be captain.

                        I also don't see Fortunato as the 7th d-man on this team.

                          Fabbro named BCHL defenseman of the year.
                          Fabbro leads all BCHL rear-guards in points with 63, despite only playing in 43 games. Fabbro is second in goals (14) and assists (49) but is head and shoulders above any other blue-liner in points per-game average (1.47).

                              Check out the Eichel-esque rush by 2018 recruit Jake Wise in Central Catholic's 4-3 shootout win over Reading in a Super 8 playoff game. (3:00 mark of the video)

                                What, no mention of his horrendous giveaway leading to a goal right before that?
