What If No One Left The WCHA Early?

You always hear different fan bases bitching about what things would be like if certain players didn't leave early for the pros. I went back and put together rosters of WCHA teams for this season if none of their players left early for the pro's or for Major Junior. I didn't include kids who backed on verbals only to sign with another program like Patrick Wiercoich, or back out on two verbals like Mike Dorr.

I'm sure some players got left out, especially on the major junior side so correct me if you see something that is wrong.

Players who left early in BOLD.
