"Ohio State coach Mark Osiecki, who has coached Merrill before in international play, said after Michigan's 4-0 win Sunday in Cleveland at the Frozen Diamond Faceoff he thinks Merrill is the best defenseman in the country."
Merrill said. "I don't know when it is going to happen, but that would be special. I was really fortunate to be drafted by that organization. They've been supportive with everything I've gone through. I couldn't ask for anything better."

And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."
