All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

There are two Grad Transfers coming from Cornell and Dartmouth ....so perhaps his ice time might have been reduced.....ALSO he will never have a bigger moment at UM ....so leave on TOP!!

Some (older) quotes from Jones about how likely he’d be to turn pro. Last part of the article from our own Mollie Walker.

I wonder if the campus shutdown ended up being a benefit for the team in the long run. They looked so damn good in the Tournament... that 2-ish weeks of rest might have really come in handy.
