    Default Brady Tkachuck returning to Boston University next year!

    Apparently, regardless of which team drafts him, he's going to return to BU. I wonder how much he slides with this news...

    it makes sense... I can't see him sliding more than a couple spots, if at all. If you're not drafting top 3, you should be expecting at least 1 year of development

    Not sure Habs will pick him. They need help next season. Maybe a trade....

    One C in -chuk. (98%+ of the hockey-name time!)

    I'm not all that surprised that he wants to spend another season in college but I'm surprised he made that decision so early. Why not wait until after you've had some discussions with the team that drafts you.

    I wondered the same thing and my guess is just loyalty to the program. BU had apparently been chasing a replacement player to transfer to the team, assuming Tkachuk was leaving, and he perhaps felt he should stop that process before commitments were made since he was leaning towards returning to school anyway.

    It would be pretty short sighted of any NHL or fantasy team to have this decision affect where he gets drafted though. BPA - especially in the top 10.

    Both NHL teams and fantasy teams should be playing long-ball with these prospects.

    Drafting NHL ready prospects over long-term projects is definitely a good strategy in fantasy hockey but not so much in real life. For fantasy hockey, you don't want to be looking too far ahead.

    Interesting that he would say this so early.

    I dont know why his decision to go back to school for another year would cause teams to pass on him. It's not like teams are drafting him for one year only (ie - next season).

    I dont think he is going 4th overall anyway but none the less, this decision shouldn't sway teams away from him.

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Gusev, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Burns, Zuccarello, JBoqvist, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Yandle, Point, Konecny, TBertuzzi, NSchmaltz, Vrana

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky
