    Best wishes to Mr. Forbort, if/when he signs. I hope he becomes a mainstay in the NHL and pairs up with Mr. Greene on the blue line for the Kings.

    This one was expected. Got a lot of holes to fill next year with returning guys and rookies. Not going to be easy.

    I know we’ve lost alot with the Seniors graduating and now Forbs but look at who the Gophers are losing… 🙂 According to twitter feed GopherPuckLive : So far the Gophers have lost Alt, Bjugstad, Schmidt, Budish to the pros and Larson who is transferring out.… Haula is most likely next. Haulaylooyaa!
    Could be worse boys

      Gophers lost a lot of players but they will have arguably the best recruiting class in the country this fall
