Is it no commitment this weekend or are they unlikely to get a commitment at all from a goalie from Sweden?
I was the one advocating for them to take a run at Jon Gillies last year when he decommitted from Northeastern after the coaching change. If he were to have his same .930 save percentage on a mediocre Providence team for Michigan vs. the .873 save percentage means that our goalies have achieved, Michigan would have given up almost half as many goals. Pretty certain the Michigan goalies have by far the worst save percentage in college hockey--Cornell is .900

Yah, I was thinking about this recently, it is rather ironic, when Gillies became available late in the season last year and some mentioned going after him, the reaction seemed to be "we've already committed to 2 goalies for next year and it would be bad form to bring in another guy now to compete with them [and probably play ahead of them]." Now it sounds like we are scrambling to find any decent goalie we can for next year to compete with our incumbents.
BTW, would that .900 save percentage belong to the same Cornell that we lit up for 1 goal?

So, hypothetically...let's say that Luke Dwyer has a fantastic if brief run here. Let's say he plays the next seven or so games and posts a GAA < 2.0 and a Save % of ~ .91 and loses his last game in a 1-0 shutout loss. Very good numbers if not amazing.
What do we do next year. I assume we will still try to get another goalie, but then what? We keep 5!? We drop Dwyer after a good performance? Drop Janecyk? Both? I can't see him dropping a scholarship goalie.
What would we do?

decent chance one of the current goalies won't be with the team next year. If that's the case, then they could carry four next year again.
