Long time Gopher Fan, first time poster!

This reference has been made on a few other posts, but I think an important thing to remember is Motzko finds value in having an older roster. A lot of the Don teams near the end were extremely top heavy and struggled to maintain status quo when we’d have early exits. Some on here are suggesting that many of the veteran bottom 6 holdovers from this year’s roster will transfer, but I’m not so sure. I’m guessing a couple may end up leaving, but Bob would more than likely value experienced players than a projected bottom 6 freshman. Excited about the future of this club!

Agreed. It’s really only been Bonin21 throwing names out there but still I bet we keep Sorenson and Perbix and there’s no way Brodzinski leaves I just don’t seat that one at all.


The only two names I’ve thrown out are Brodzinski and Perbix. Brodzinski is not a bottom six guy and I don’t see a spot for him in next year’s top six if Lucius and Knies are back. I put Perbix’ name out there because he may also have trouble finding ice time if those guys are back. They both have ties to SCSU. No names beyond that. Honestly, I would probably miss Perbix more than Brodzinski. I don’t know what people are seeing in his game besides a good shot.

I understand the “top six” is really “top nine” in college hockey. And if all the big guns are here I’m not sure Brodzinski even has a spot in the top nine.

Personally I see 12 goals


How many forwards could put up 12 goals playing with two 100 point scorers + power play time?

You put Schmidt with Sammy and Mac and you think he gets 12 goals / 24 points? I completely agree that Bryce is a pretty meh player but if his one strength is scoring goals, keep him.
