TJ Hensick, who was drafted a round after Stastny, could end up with a better contract as he has decided to stay at Michigan and I believe he will be a Hobey Baker finalist. Hensick made the right decision imo, Stastny I believe did not. Yet, his father had a lot of influence on him leaving DU, just as he did when Paul's older brother, Yan, left Notre Dame early.

I agree that decision puts alot of pressure on his time in albany kinda of a do or die situation IMO but your right colorado can see what they got first but on the other hand it could pay off for the youngster in the long run.
