Good for him!

Trevor's first few games of D1 hockey were clearly moving too fast for him and he was obviously thinking, as opposed to reacting. Last Saturday, I noticed a distinct change and it appeared that he had taken his first steps around that bend and found another gear.

His high motor and nose for the net seem a natural fit for Montgomery's up-tempo system.

Congrats to Trevor - a well deserved honor!

Very well deserved. I'd argue that he is our most talented forward. I never played hockey so my analysis is lacking when it comes to the "finer points" (e.g. defense, positioning, etc.), but I'd even say he is very close to being our best forward, if he's not already there.

He certainly looked like the most talented in the Saturday game vs. Air Force, and showed great instincts and finishing ability. I'm pretty excited to see what the future holds for this kid. But I think Q. Shore will probably be regarded as our best forward by the end of the year. At least I hope that he will, because having a freshman as our best forward could signify off years for Q Shore, Loney, and others.

Breakout night for Moore!  We are going to need these younger players to step up should Loney, Doremus, Jacobson or even Larraza decide to turn pro before graduating.  These kids have an abundance of talent but Jimmy's system is designed for smaller players with a different skill set.  Hard to fault kids for looking at opportunities that will highlight their skills and further their pro career. The good news is that Monty is off to British Columbia to hand pick recruits that will better fit his system this weekend.

The REALLY good news is you don't know crap from Crisco. When did you become a DU fan, exactly? Why don't you post under your other name?

Albatross80208 said...

Nope, nope, nope. You still haven't sobered up now have you. Still no analysis, just personal attacks.

When you say "we" I assume you're referring to CC. You sure as hell aren't a DU fan, notwithstanding your deceptive postings. 'Course that's nothing new for you is it? Apparently you find these juvenile games you play hugely entertaining. Sad and pathetic is more like it.

Monty's strategy: Dump the forwards that might be able to score. Sad commentary when you dump the BCHL leading scorer, who happens to be a Colorado boy and then go looking for BC rejects. The guy has 20 goals in 28 games and isn't even a defenseman. Obviously wouldn't fit in Monty's program.

Yawn. Troll patrol.

I'd love to hear what really went down with Landon Smith. At first when it was first announced on Twitter, I had assumed that Landon (leading the BCHL in scoring) decided to shop around after Gwoz was fired.

Then, the new article says that DU decided to drop Landon. For reference, the last two players DU recruited that were the leading point scorers in the BCHL were Bozak and Bennett. Joey Leggs was 5th and the only defender in the top 20.

Really not sure what to make of this but I can't imagine Monty dropping Landon. Talent and goal scoring ability is part of everyone's system. You fill out your roster with "system players", but you need players like Landon Smith to put the biscuit in the basket. Add to it that Landon is a Denver guy and it really makes no sense.

DU just announced that Monty has hired David Carle as a new assistant coach beginning Jan 1, 2014 when Steve Miller departs. One family member leaves, but another takes his place. Monty seems to totally get what DU is all about.

Imaws Kcup said...

edit to my post above - I hadn't checked all the posts here or USCHO over the holiday before posting. I've seen some reasons laid out for why Landon was de-committed. Still seems odd to drop the leading scorer in the BCHL, but maybe there's more than meets the eye with his lack of production in the USHL the prior two seasons.

Imaws Kcup said...

...also, great news about Carle. Really like that move. Have heard nothing but great things about him.
