I still maintain that if everybody stays on D, they should move Marshall up to forward in the short term. He has the skating and skill to handle it. I don't know how he'd like it but if it is the difference between playing or sitting, I think I'd do whatever it took to be in the lineup.MNHockeyFan wrote:I think Holl more so than Marshall, who does make freshman mistakes but will often make up for them offensively. He scored a big goal yesterday to get the Gophers on the board. I thought Holl struggled throughout the game and he did take two penalties in the 3rd period when UND was trying to mount another comeback.
I'm not a big Holl fan but he is only an underclassmen so I would never give up on him this soon. He has good ability but he needs to play smarter and I'd like to see some additional physical play from him.
In any case, the good thing is they have this "problem". I'd rather have a few too many talented players than not enough. If anything, it protects the Gophers in case they do lose a few guys in the off-season.
