Ask Snuggerud and Chesley to play a year of juniors after NTDP and watch them suit up for another school in the fall.

Hard to tell if those two are going to be first round talents right now. Broz played that extra year of junior after being a second round pick. Huglen and Pitlick did it after being fourth and fifth round picks. Lamb did it after being a fourth round pick.

College hockey isn’t like college football, you can’t redshirt players and you need everyone on your roster to contribute.

You get yourself into problems in college hockey if you’re spending too much of your season developing players who aren’t ready.
