Forgive not having mentioned this earlier, but I am writing through the urge to go expel my dinner as I type this. Who knew rooms could spin without drinking.
Reports have Charlie Coyle leaving Boston University and headed for the
St. John's Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL. That would, of course, put him with Wild first round pick Zack Phillips. We have very little to go on right now, but it sounds like grades were an issue, as was the coaches handling of the team, including the dismissal of a top player over an arrest.
The question we are left with is... why didn't he go to Houston? We'll have more if more becomes available.
After the jump, the articles on Coyle, and a minor amount of other news.
