    Has to be the last one, right? Esteves, Keefer, Lewandowski, Stevens, Kamer, Smith for forwards? I am not sure we have that many spots. Maybe Apap, too?

    Miller and maybe Bederka for D? I hope the class is finalized soon because I am interested to see how this shakes out.

      Also, it seems Cole is fishing in the NAHL pond for some older guys. I wonder what his angle is as I don't often associate the NAHL with impact talent as much as the USHL or the Canadian leagues.

      Maybe he's reinforcing a very underclassmen heavy roster with more physically mature players. I don't think this is a bad idea. That's how PSU operated for a while.

        That's usually the playbook for a rebuild. To some extent, you can neutralize high-caliber underclass talent with older underclassmen.

        The NAHL isn't a terrible league, either. Lots of late-bloomers. Hopefully, this is another example.

          Good thing Asbestos didn't get that age rule passed through then.

            Danton Cole was a co-host on the Drive with Jack radio show yesterday. A good two and a half hours of hockey talk. You can find the replay at the link below..

              I did a double-take at the post-card we received in the mail ... it seems the hockey office - from the very top - is taking a more personal, familiar approach to communications with season ticket-holders. I sure appreciated it, because there had to be hours and hours of penmanship involved.

              Come to think of it, I wonder just how many of us are left!

                Now you're starting to get why Huntsville loves Danton.

                  That is a very nice touch. Wow.

                  It's feels great to have positive feelings for the direction of the program again. I nearly forgot about hockey season until the week of the first game last year but now I'm counting down the days.

                    That was a good way to kill the morning at work.

                    I was hoping Ebling would have Cole get a little deeper in the weeds, though. I was hoping to hear him go into more detail about his vision for the future in the way of playing style and systems as well as how the current roster fits into his plans. Maybe too early to get those details.

                      I guess they needed to send Appleton one as well. He gone.

                        Appleton has signed with the Jets according to MSU hockey Twitter. I suppose that lowers our ceiling a touch next season.

                          I wonder why he left? He was named captain and had a good chance to improve his stock if he had a good season under the new regime. I can't imagine the Jets are going to send him right to the NHL...

                              Yeah, hard to fault him with that sweet deal. I personally thought he need to bake another year but the Jets believe differently. Good luck to him and thanks for the two years he gave.

                              Not really used to this anymore since we, you know, suck now.

                                Looks like we finally have our class all signed. No real surprises.

                                Pretty diverse group. Good blend of skill and size+ physicality and from several different leagues. We need this class to make an impact so let's hope they're ready.
