they are getting STX68 kids from outside NE (at least for U15), if you value that at all. The difference is at Shattuck and South Kent, the 3rd line and 3rd pair are still impact players that can give you productive minutes. that'll be the key for MSC -can they recruit enough to get good depth.
New rink won't be up for three years. Dorms will not be ready, and Belisle's will be gone, but in five years, you are looking at the Shattuck of the east. Prep School kids will be bailing into the Mount and other schools will be looking to copy this model. Why? Because parents are lapping up all the D1 junk that the EHF/E9/and so called elite programs are feeding them. Also the MIAA and RIIL are destroying high school hockey, therefore, handing Mount and full season teams all the talent. High School Club hockey on its way.
