Any of the D1 "commits" in the 01-04 age group should be worried. For the next four years, current D1 players in the transfer portal will get first looks because they have experience.
D3 college hockey is going to get stronger because of this.
Correct. Notice how over the past few months skills coaches, Jr coaches, evaluators have stated "If I tell you are a D3 player, you should be happy" They don't want to lose business so now they are all in on DIII where 12 months ago they looked down on it. Its going to get ugly, fast!
Many kids in that portal have already proven they are just average or below average D1 players. Far too many underperformers in that portal.
