Defense Pairings

A reliable observer of captains’ practices this week reports these initial blueline combinations:
Sean Sullivan-Matt Gilroy
Kevin Kielt-Kevin Schaeffer
Tom Morrow-Brian McGoff
Brian Strait-Eric Gryba

The observer had some extra praise for first year players Strait and Luke Popko. Strait was ranked #2 among all freshman defensemen by INCH, behind the NHL’s top draft choice, Erik Johnson of Minnesota.

Speaking of INCH, the Web site ranked BU's overall freshman class #2 in the nation despite the presence of an offensive threat at forward. Let's remember that last season INCH totally ignored Brandon Yip, who became HE's Rookie of the Year.
