Let's hope he achieves that goal.
    What is the latest on Nolan's prospects of returning sometime soon?

His plan could have been be at NU for 4 years, get degree, and leave then, which he can do without redshirting. He may not see aa benefit of an additional year. Again, we don't know.

    I'm still hopeful for this season.
    Lowell on Fri.. what are our chances. Providence just swept 'em, ..they will be looking to rebound from that.

    Hope Coaches have team ready. Riverhawks having another strong season ..barring this past wknd.

    I'd be surprised if Sikura leaves...Rockford is scratching guys who would be getting minutes in just about every other system and Chicago, who is up against cap with only 43 contracts and no big pending departures, owns him until next year...

    Gaudette, IMHO, is a better than even money bet to return...Vancouver is never in rush to sign guys...even less so a 5th rounder...he may return to NU for his senior season in an effort to get out of 5th round money...
    Going off of information posted on DieHardDogs, it sounds as if Nolan is expected back next year as well. The same person also implied Sikura is expected back, as you did. Gaudette, I figured VAN wouldn't rush to sign him, what with the rebuild and such. If they both return, plus Nolan, there will likely be some preseason hype (again). But that's to worry about in the offseason .

    Hawkins-Filipe-Pec
    Joz-Solow-Griffin
    Schule-Schultz-Goldstein
    Selanne, Lerario, Picking

    Sikura/Gaudette both leave:

    Hawkins-Filipe-Stevens
    Jozefek-Solow-Pecararo
    Griffin-Schultz-Schule
    Goldstein-Picking-Selanne
    Lerario

    If they stay, I feel really good about the team next year. If they leave, not only are we down in the body count, but goal scoring takes a big hit too

    I still think that's a solid top 9 without them.

    Of course, we also thought we had forward depth this year, and we all know how that turned out.

    I agree...he came back with a solid game Saturday after what I thought was a sub-par effort Friday...Stevens' line v. Merrimack's was a battle royale both nights...very hard nosed hockey...especially Saturday on the smaller ice...ZAR left tattoos all over the ice Saturday...

    Secondary scoring was a plus...Ruck was solid...challenging shooters...actually controlling his rebounds...

    long as Ruck can continue to improve just a bit.. keep it together back there.. we'll take 'em however we can get 'em.

    Huskies needed that wknd. will have to be that much sharper (and disciplined) versus Lowell. Go NU
