    Notre Dame, then down the road flipped to the Gophers (and is an NHL draft pick). Guys like that, even if they’re in the lineup every game aren’t going to be content playing 4th line their entire career, so I’m not surprised he left. Many observers I know feel the Gophers rarely recruit a Tom Serratore/Jake Parenteau type player who understands (coming in) that their role will be as a 4 year – fourth liner or 3rd D pair player. And not targeting

    Nevers, Strobel, J Mittelstadt, Fish, Staudacher. (Sorenson, Denman)

    Agree, tBob is better at this than tDon was…Fish & Nevers being examples, JM & Strobel should fit these roles pretty well too, Staudacher is more of a regular. Sorenson left for Alaska, but to his credit earned his degree from the U in 3 years. 👍
