    They are very good players with a ton of upside who would help any team but wow they bring along a lot of baggage and I can definitely hear helicopters when the Lucius family is involved.

    3 big things, what happens first??

    1. Assistant coach

    2. Add 1-2 forwards

    3. Add goalie

    I checked Cruz’s Instagram earlier this morning to see if it said Gopher commit and it did and now is wiped clean of the pics of him signing his NLI as expected.  Now will the Gophers play hardball and not allow him to go to certain schools are will they just say screw it and say don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out? Obviously the Lucius brothers have a ton of talent, and if all goes well will play in the NHL, and the Gophers will miss that talent on the ice. Bob certainly won’t miss the behind the scenes drama that the family brings. Just hope that Kurth still comes in.

    Also Jess’s tweet said a” spokesperson” for the family said… ( roll my eyes )

    Gopher hockey gets 24 total games out of the two wunderkinds.

    Maybe he’ll go join Mel or Tristan.

    And get a bad reputation in the community, especially the Gentry community (cough Kurth cough)? Tough spot to be in. I bet he ends up NCHC cuz they advise against in-conference rival Michigan.

    Unless something has already been reported that I haven’t seen…just because Chaz decided to sign with the Jets (& evidently) play in WHL next season…doesn’t de facto mean Cruz no longer wishes to play for the Gophers next season…

    I couldn’t find the youngest Gopher commitments ever data. But I actually think some of the top 5 youngest worked out okay. I think Reedy and McManus were on there, and they turned out okay (but neither met the expectation for them at time of commitment).

    When I think of d-bag hockey parents I always go back to the conversation I had with one time Gopher recruit Mitch Hults’s dad here in Mankato when Mitch was in town with Lake Superior State.  Listening to his dad talk about Minnesota and tDon and how his kid was the best thing since sliced bread all the while Mitch wasn’t a top 6 forward even on that team.

    Here is a serious question though…what is the dad going to do if both Lucius kids end up hurt and have no degree or life experience outside of practicing and playing hockey?  What does the Lucius dad even do that he can buy his kid’s way through life?

    OK, who reported it or how was it announced (did Cruz himself tweet something)? Thanks

    When you are that rich you’re set for life unless your parents hate you. They can just get a job the parents find for them if hockey doesn’t work out. Also the hockey community in general looks out for its own when it comes to post hockey careers.

    Well, I guess that puts the final wrap on the Lucia era recruits ☝️ Chaz had flashes, but compared to how he was touted, never met expectations & Cruz is an asterisk…a moot point (now).

    Those two committed under Motzko. Yes it was probably a family deal but he still agreed to it.

    As an east coast guy he seemed unlikely. Options are drying up rapidly… Lamb might get forced in a year early.

    Gentry will need a new coaching staff about that time.  Maybe that was their backup plan all along since the boys never actually played for the school.  (MSHSL team)

    Like I said elsewhere… a team is (probably) going to pay a price if they don’t focus enough attention on the history of a player.

    Bringing in Lamb and bringing back Perbix probably what we do.

    Perbix is not top 9 like the three we lost. But not sure we have better options at this point.

    They committed under Lucia.  They committed on 8/31/17 and Motzko wasn’t named the Gopher’s head coach until March 27, 2018.

    Maybe, just maybe ….if the “bored” members knew more of the details of what happened behind the scenes this year I can guarantee how horrible these lazy Lucius parents hot takes would be and if you weren’t embarrassed, than you probably don’t have a heart or a brain. The heat should be re directed elsewhere.

    I would love to get Lamb to play another year of juniors. I also can’t really say Moldenhauer and Spicer are better/more ready than him.

    I do think there could be more kids pushed back due to portal and maybe options change in coming weeks…and I am still holding onto Hope with Jackson Hallum.

    You are misreading the conversation being had here. The comment made was that all Lucia era recruits are now out of the pipeline. Then someone said, “The Mittelstadts”, but the two committed under Motzko.

    And my reaction to the young commit list and how they turned out is players were committing to the Gophers and then got big heads or got lazy and their peers caught them or passed them by the time they made it to campus. There was an even bigger risk of this the earlier they committed. The change to older commitments was a very good thing for the U.

    Or, you have sort of personal connection to them and are just trying to spin things.  With comments like these, you clearly have an agenda of some sort.

    I really don’t care to decode your cryptic nonsense or who is at fault.  I am focused on what Minnesota is going to do to put the best roster on the ice next season.

    It’s still ok to do that on a fan board, right?

    And maybe if you didn’t shine a spotlight on yourself and act like you are God’s gift to message board info6 people wouldn’t roll their eyes when you post nonsense like this Papa Lucius.   Now run along I’m sure you have a WHL team to buy for your kids or something.

     

    And for your #1 fan who will run up to defend you in-between pimping every team except the one he supposedly cheers for…I will trust other posters around here all day over Papa Lucius here.

    Here NCHCSuperFan#1 let me break it down…we don’t actually think that is their dad.  We do think he has a personal connection to the family and no matter how much he dms you protestations that won’t change.

    Maybe, just maybe ….if the “bored” members knew more of the details of what happened behind the scenes this year I can guarantee how horrible these lazy Lucius parents hot takes would be and if you weren’t embarrassed, than you probably don’t have a heart or a brain. The heat should be re directed elsewhere.

    Where should it be directed? Admittedly I know very little about the details that lead things to this point.

    Sounds like he’s pointing at Bob.

    ou didn’t shine a spotlight on yourself and act like you are God’s gift to message board info6 people wouldn’t roll their eyes when you post nonsense like this Papa Lucius. Now run along I’m sure you have a WHL team

    Yes, I do have more info but I won’t share out of respect to Shuffle who gave it to me.

    Congratulations?

    At one point Goldy said “Sr leadership” was the problem.  Whomever that is/was.

    If he shared it in written form and it’s expressed as clearly and coherently as his post…I’m sure it’s riveting.

    It isn’t out of the realm of possibility.  There has been an exodus of forwards for some reason.

     

    I would understand Bob telling certain super seniors that there is no scholarship available since he has new freshman to deal with.  But we aren’t just losing super seniors and this isn’t a playing time issue now that we have 12 forwards.  So why are they all leaving?

     

    Assume for a minute that Goldy Shuffle is correct and the Lucuis departures aren’t due to an unhappy daddy.  What’s going on?  Are they related to the other departing forwards or their own separate issue?

    I’m curious as to why you are/were the chosen amongst us here on GPL for him to share the privileged knowledge of the goings on of the Gopher hockey program?

    In his short life of 15 posts here on GPL I’ve already grown tired of Goldy and his medium of choice (Bonin) for insider info.

    Clearly there was some kind of rift with the Lucius family. There are always 2 sides and we we don’t really know either side and prob never will.

    I don’t think calling it an e exodus is fair either. We kept our most important forward and D men and are bringing in a great freshman class. There is room for the Lucius family and Gophers to find success in the future.

    Now let’s announce Steve Miller as Head coach. Jackson Hallum as new recruit and some 6’6 Swedish goalie we’ve never heard of and go get it!

    Even I think this is bizarre. Maybe the Lucius house was the one with the rhododendrons . . . maybe I caused this chain of events.

     

    What’s with the punctuation…?…you OK man?

    When I think of d-bag hockey parents I always go back to the conversation I had with one time Gopher recruit Mitch Hults’s dad here in Mankato when Mitch was in town with Lake Superior State. Listening to his dad talk about Minnesota and tDon and how his kid was the best thing since sliced bread all the while Mitch wasn’t a top 6 forward even on that team. Here is a serious question though…what is the dad going to do if both Lucius kids end up hurt and have no degree or life experience outside of practicing and playing hockey? What does the Lucius dad even do that he can buy his kid’s way through life?

    Likely just give them jobs at the financial services company he founded.

    Me too. Either post some specific info to back up the vague innuendo or go away. I know this kind of negativity gets bonin21 aroused, but it bores the hell out of me.

    Yeah it’s one thing to allude to news that’s about to drop (and not give specifics because it’s going to happen soon and you don’t want to rob the players of their moment to share said news). It’s another to tell everyone they’re wrong and dumb for speculating on something that you supposedly know the specifics of but not say why.

    If there is more going on, please tell. I want to know. Post or DM me.

    Excited for Strobel. Not a guy that’s gonna light up the scoresheet but from what I’ve seen and heard about him he’s a character guy that bleeds maroon and gold and will block 50 shots a night if it means getting a win. We need a little of that.

    Maybe but like I said before, you can’t leave out the possibility of Gentry coaching.  If the boys aren’t going to play there, they can coach once their playing days are over.  Easy way to stay connected to the game.

    It is official. At least some good news today ( so far )

    Edit– Now the twitter guy has added “leaning”.

    Still waiting on three forwards for the roster and the third string goalie.
