The "top" hockey schools (BC, BU, MN, MI) rely too much on NTDP players who come in much younger than the players at the teams that now win championships (MN-D, Denver, Quinnipiac, Yale). The Big Guys have to realize that you can't win with a team full of superstars--you need some role players to do the dirty work. [They might want to watch Miracle a couple times.] By making these cuts BC is just trading one group of early stars for another. They will continue to lose until they get back to playing big boy hockey. Having a couple 20 year old freshmen D over 6 feet tall might be a good start.
