This new goalie Michigan picked up the other day is the only goalie U-M is bringing in next season. A couple of the grad-transfers decided to turn pro, Casey DeSmith was not an option because he didn't attend classes this past year and was not set to graduate this spring, and the move for a European fell through. So this is where U-M is: Steve Racine, Zach Nagelvoort and Chad Catt. The next few weeks will be interesting with Dylan Larkin. He is competing at the World Championships in May with Team USA, and he will be surrounded by NHL prospects. Michigan has every right to be nervous he will return from that trip dreaming of taking the next step. Wings don't have plans for him next season (or even in two years) but some talk that he's being told otherwise (of course). If Larkin doesn't announce by June 1, the Wolverines will be breathing better. Zach Werenski is another one to watch, though he is expected back next season. Much will depend on who drafts him and their relationship with Michigan. Obviously there are a few organizations that don't like U-M and vice versa. A motivation for Andrew Copp to leave? Apparently his dad didn't like that Copp wasn't the leading scorer the past two seasons and blamed this on Michigan's failure to develop him to be the first-line center he was destined to be. This is what society has become. Every parent thinks their kid is the next Crosby. Winnipeg apparently told the family he could one day lead their team in points. I like Andrew a lot but that is a crock. Connor Murphy will not be part of this class. He is going to come in with the 2016-17 freshmen. Some interesting things on the schedule front, though this next year will be a BRUTAL home schedule. Teams like Mercyhurst, Robert Morris, Niagara and Dartmouth while U-M will play at Union and BU. In two years, though, there could be some great non-conference matchups, and maybe another Big Chill. There is a potential road trip that would be sick, but not to a traditional hockey hotbed. That is all for now. Digest and fire away.
