    Quality all-around person. If you ever met the guy it's no surprise to see him get this.
    Cox solidified his spot as my favorite Spartan a couple years ago when he had one of the best penalty killing shifts I've ever seen in a game against PSU. Had I believe 3 huge shot blocks, the first of which hobbled him.

    If we have a road series left it could be any of those. If it's home then the 20-21 would be a Thurs-Fri or Fri-Sun.

    Looking more and more like it'll be filled with an Atlantic Hockey team, but there could be a home and home with WMU as they have the 20-21 open.
    New Hampshire, Northeastern, Merrimack, and Connecticut are also possible from Hockey East...a league we usually have a series with.

    Danton made a lot of some decent puck-moving D here. I think that a lot of that was the influence of Luongo. I'd say that you'll be fine.

    This could be it unless there is a surprise add or someone leaves.
    Goalies - Minnie, Lethemon, Wright
    Dmen - Osburn, Gatt, Rosburg, Eliot, T. Miller, Farmer, Ghafari, Chrek, Scarsella
    Forward - Saliba, Appleton, Hirosi, Khoderenko, Lambdin, Milan, Sanford, Pavelek, Kamer, Lewandowski, Keefer, J. Smith, Stevens

    Heavy on dmen so no reason for Apap this year unless Someone leaves this summer. Only one extra forward, but MSU could get by.
    I'll paste this one from the old thread to keep discussion going.

    It does seem we have one too many D-men and could use one more forward. I guess a good issue to have on the blue line as opposed to two years ago where it looked like we might have to throw traffic cones out there.

    Ryan Bederka, a D-man, is also still listed as an MSU recruit for next year.

    I believe we should also be expecting a final draft of the schedule soon. Usually early June, is it?

    I was thinking about starting one of these but wasn't sure it'd get any traffic. We tend to take summers off for the most part. I guess that's what happens when you sit through a garbage season and realize there is no reason other than blind hope that the next one will be much better. Do that cycle several times and you get what happened last year which was that I forgot about hockey season until less than a week before the first game.

    I think the coaching change is big for everyone's state of mind. I'm not sure a coaching staff has ever lost everyone's confidence quite like the Anastos regime. That felt hopeless.
