USHL Blog 2009 Previews

Wow, 60 you didn't even give me 8 hours to post something hockey related before bringing out the cats.

Anyway, the Unofficial USHL Blog has been doing 2009 Previews of all the teams in the USHL. So far, everyone besides Omaha and Waterloo has been covered.

The recent Lincoln Stars Preview talks some about Travis Erstad and how prehaps next season will be a breakout season for him.

The Sioux City Stampede Preview doesn't have much, just that under key departures Eric Springer is listed as the team's best defenseman for this past season.

The Des Moines Buccaneers Preview mentions Nick Pryor who will man their blueline next season since his time w/ the NTDP is over.

The Green Bay Gamblers Preview mentions three future Badgers. Ryan Little as a key departure, and then Aaron Crandall and Chase Drake. Aaron has since been traded to Des Moines, so that changes things.

I'm interested to see what the blog's thoughts are on Omaha and Waterloo. Waterloo will feature three future Badger forwards next season in Brock Montpetit, Craig Smith and Tyler Barnes, unless of course something changes in the off season.
