Maletta + DiFruscia: Both locals, both good players (assuming DiFruscia actually plays at the level that we all know he can)

Overagers who don't return
Aagaard - Will likely pick up one or two more young guys in the import draft.
Brosnan - All the other D are returning, there just won't be any room for him.
Fitzmorris - Hard to have an overager who is just an energy and PK guy. Unfortunate really.

Up in the air overager
Verhaeghe - would like to have him back but who knows what will happen. Can he make the Marlies? I'm not sure. Does he make the Solar Bears? Probably, but is there room? Would they rather him back in junior? Who knows

Goalies
Moran,
Dhillon

OHL draft
Certainly forwards
If you're keeping Mikulovich, you can only draft one import.

and should they decide to keep both Makulovich and Aagaard, they will have used up both their Import and Over Age cards all is one shot.

Or use one of the 1st round picks to draft another flyer that may not report and do another deal like Logan Brown. Reality is we probably don't want to carry extra 16 y/o's on a team that is making a run for the Mem Cup unless they are top notch OHL ready talent like a Chychrun or Konecny. Anything less, we are better off with a boat load of draft picks to use at the deadline to plug any holes. The extra first rounder in the 2016 draft can then be used as part of our rebuild.

So, you are saying that Next Years Team will be better than this years team?

If all of the stars align; yes we are saying that next year's club may be better than this year's team.
I have read in the past, that next year was always in the plan for the run.
This year could be another confidence builder, and I think that there are a lot of teams that would like to avoid Niagara in the playoffs

On paper we will be better if all the players return do not now about Carter and the Leafs plans.

Thanks Ice Dogs fans! You definitely provided a lot of great insight into the future of the team! The one name several of you mentioned that caught my interest was Trent Frederic.

He sounds like he could have been a game breaker. So I did some research on him and found this article. I can only assume that this means he is not coming to the OHL anytime soon?

Too bad - good try by Marty in the 6th round though.

Last I talked to IceDogs management about Frederic they hadn't completely closed the door on him but would consider it an EXTREME longshot

I went back to read the article more closely - and you're right. His verbal commitment to university hockey is with some risk to the Badgers because the Ice Dogs drafted him.

I guess we can hope that Marty can sell him on the fact that the Ice Dogs will be one of the top teams in the CHL next year - and the weekly national exposure would greatly improve his chances of becoming a high NHL draft choice.

It would prove to be a brilliant move by the Ice Dogs if they manage to get him here next year!

Excerpt from the article:

" Rated as one of the top 1998-born players in the country, Frederic has accepted a spot in Ann Arbor to play for the U.S. NTDP the next two seasons before joining the Badgers in 2016. As with any high-end player, there is some risk involved. Frederic was recently selected in the OHL Priority Selection by the Niagara Ice Dogs in the 6th-round. The pick was nothing more than a flier, however, as Frederic would have been a first-round selection if he had serious interest in the league."

...and keep in mind this is taken from a Wisconsin Badger news outlet - which might explain that last line.
