In Topic: Ruminations on the first 39.02% of the season

To point #1, I'd like to see the Devils go to a fairly big defensive rotation. Get guys nights off, keep them fresh. Subbing in Foster or Taormina frequently doesn't really hurt the team and I think keeping the older guys, who may wear down over the long haul due to age, and the younger guys, who aren't used to the workload, fresher will be beneficial in the long run.

A rotation is also beneficial if injuries pop up because players already have some rapport with the guy stepping in.

Sounds great in theory , but for alot of players getting in a groove and playing on a consistant basis is needed. I think it is good that we have depth to push the guys in the bottom pairings and pressure them to perform knowing that their is someone chomping at the bit to get back in the lineup , but a consistant rotating guys in and out would not help in building chemistry with D parings etc.

We are on a hot streak right now so I hope not too many changes are made. Stick with what works for now and if someone starts sucking , sub in the 7th guy.

Was he suspended by the NCAA or just by Michigan?
I believe it was just Michigan and not the NCAA , but not 100% certain.

If the NCAA did not suspend him , seems odd that his school would suspend him for so long for something that does not break NCAA policy.
