Any new sources or rumors on Cooley?Real possibility Cooley (and Fantilli, ugh...) come back! Fingers crossed. If Michigan gets a good goalie they'll be a machine.
He will have a contract to sign... The question is if he wants to go there or sees somewhere where he can have a top 6 spot right away easier.Hearing that Johnson might not have a spot with Buffalo, so even if he wants to go he might not have a contract to sign.
Motzko seems to be above the portal, and if three of those four guys leave it's going to bite him in the ass trying to even put together a full roster for next season.I'm not saying Vegoe is wrong, but the fact that we haven't been active in the portal and are only bringing in 2 freshman forwards tells me that more than 1 of these guys will be back next year.
I think he's busy replaying the tape over and over again to see how and why he was outcoached along with wondering why the guys he had on the ice weren't in the right positions since they were the right guys for that moment in time... and his play he had planned for them didn't develop like... he planned, if they'd only won the faceoff.Bob has given us no reason to believe he doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to roster construction. I have a hard time believing he's just going to wait and see and hope for the best.
Moore is a true center though so I actually think he would center the 2nd line with Cooley centering the top line with Snuggerud and maybe Pitlick? Huglen is also a center though so maybe someone gets moved to wing. But it’s really looking like we may be returning 11/12 forwards losing Knies and gaining Moore. If Close comes back we’ll be dominant once again.Yeah someone on GPL also mentioned they expect the senior forwards to return. I would not think that includes Schmidt, but who knows.
A line of Cooley-Snuggerud-Moore sounds pretty exciting to me. This team should be a contender again next year.
