One of the top uncommitted defensemen in the country, Chad Krys, committed to Boston University this afternoon. Yes, BC was in on Krys but there was little to no chance he was going to end up in Chestnut Hill because his father, Mark, was a Terrier captain in the late 80's.Once again, I've been swamped with tweets and emails about BC's recruiting, especially when it comes to defensemen, but in reality, there isn't any reason for panic. Yes, BU has an absolutely stacked set of defensemen and forwards coming in two years but BC will counter that with a loaded forward group over the course of the next couple seasons (assuming some guys stay). Sure, losing any recruit to BU stings but if the staff could go out and land top Canadian recruit Dante Fabbro, then they are set on defense for the next couple season. While they may not be the top end NHL prospects that Krys, McAvoy, and Farrance are, the guys that BC has brought in will be very solid four year guys but now the task is to match them with two/three year NHL studs.
No reason for anybody to worry about the recruiting, they're going to be fine. I mean, if you're actually feeling uneasy, just look at the projected lineup for this season and then you'll sleep fine.
