  • From a Tosu Insta post says they are looking for 2 forwards from the transfer portal. I guess we will wait and see.

      An instagram post ... advertising? announcing? detailing? (I don't know what the right word would be) that is quite odd...

          There are approximately 70 forwards currently in the portal. Is the post meant to say that none of the 70 is 'sufficient'? Is the point of the post to try to induce or convince or solicit other student-athletes to put at risk their current school and team in hopes of being of 'sufficient' skills that they will be the one OSU sees as 'acceptable' for their team? Because once a S-A enters the portal, backing out and staying at their current school become 'problematic', to say the least.

          For what purpose or reason did OSU WH make this post? What do you find to be "brilliant" about it?

            Seems fishy and I would know, I practically fish for a living. I can smell it in the air.

              If I was relying on the Portal to enhance my team for next year, I'd be shaking the tree as hard as possible too. There are no legit gamechangers on that list right now. Solid contributors, absolutely. But no marquee names.

                      Hmmm, this kinda goes against the narrative that Muzzy has a titanic roster all ready assembled and is just waiting to unleash a roster unmatched in its awesomeness to the world of women's college hockey. I think it confirms some people's suspicions.

                        That's embarrassing, and borders on tampering.

                            Also not sure this is for women currently on the portal, this may be for anyone thinking of getting on the portal. Letting the players know that they are looking for two spots. I think it is a smart move, an I am sure they checked with compliance before doing this to make sure it doesn't violate NCAA rules.

                            • A free help wanted sign is thinking out of the box. The incoming recruits have to be nervous with this type of stuff going on. I'm not saying it is good or bad, but stressful for some.

                                It's definitely for people not yet in the portal, because once they are in the portal you can contact them directly. (Players in the portal do have an option to select "do not contact" if they don't want programs reaching out, usually because they know their destination.) And yeah, I don't think it breaks any rules to just yell vaguely in the direction of the internet "HEY WE'D PROBABLY ADD A COUPLE OF FORWARDS" (certainly in other sports coaches are speaking openly in interviews about what they are looking for in the portal) but it does really run against the idea that they have a complete idea of who they are getting in the portal if they are putting personal ads up on Insta.
