Last Gopher with this much hype?



This kid feels like he’s more advanced than CM when he came in after high school.

Definitely Mittelstadt. People are forgetting how obsessed everyone was with him during but mostly before his time here

Unfortunately for Mittelstadt he has got to be one of the best examples of “could have used another year or two in college”. Would have benefited Minnesota, Casey and probably the Sabres. But intelligence and competency don’t seem to be traits valued by the ones in charge at Buffalo. It seems they saw that he had a decent season with the Gophs and a really good World Junior tournament and got him to Buffalo ASAP with zero forward thinking.
