Duncan Staying

North Dakota forward and former Hobey Baker winner Ryan Duncan will be staying at North Dakota for his senior season.

It's hard to criticize someone for choosing to stay in school, but this still doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I felt that Duncan would have been best served by leaving school last summer when his stock was at its highest, and with Jonathan Toews leaving for the NHL. Instead, he had nowhere to go but down last year, and even though he put up good numbers, his Hobey Baker-winning season the year prior ended up looking like the product of Jonathan Toews, and he probably cost himself a little bit of money in the process. The same could happen next year as well when he's no longer playing with T.J. Oshie.
