I think it all comes down to scholarship money and timeline.

I agree. My thought was Braccini and Miller were higher scholarship and Warner and Strobel could be more “walk on” type with way lower scholarship $s. I would think J. Mittelstadt is lower $s too and if you want Luke you have to keep older bro in the pipe.

I am curious how Pinoniemi has progressed since hs. Honestly wasn’t a huge fan, very passive and played on the fridge a lot. I’m guessing he has progressed and his numbers in USHL are decent.

I saw Pinoniemi play in person his 1st full year at SF and it was not good. Last year I did not get to see him in person, but his points went up ( only 1 more goal ) from 20 to 37 points. This year will be a big year for him and hopefully he will continue to take a leap forward, just like Jaxon Nelson did in his 3rd year in the USHL. He as 2 points in 2 games so far this year. I am mixed on him, just as I was on Joe Miller. Just need to see how the season plays out.
