Commie's take on early departures

The number of players leaving college early look like they are spiking this offseason. UND has lost four already -- the most in more than a decade. Minnesota has lost three. Denver, Mankato and Wisconsin also have lost underclassmen, making it a hot topic around the WCHA.

When I talked to Mike Commodore a couple of weeks ago, I got his take on it. He still follows college hockey and UND closely, even though he's busy with his season. He easily rapped off every player that had signed and even knew Rastislav Spirko was engaged to a Slovakian girl.

Commodore left UND after his junior season (1999-2000) to sign with New Jersey. Looking back at his move, Commodore said he would have liked to stay.

"I'll be honest, I wanted to stay for my senior year. I loved being at UND and I wanted to stay there. But it basically came down to money for me. The way it was set up back then, if I stayed, I would have had no leverage in negotiating my contract the next year. I know it sounds greedy, but I left for purely financial reasons. Winning the national title (in 2000) helped, too. I really wanted to win a national title.

"It was one of the toughest decisions I've ever had to make. I wanted to stay, my heart said stay. But my head said I've got to go. New Jersey didn't put a lot of pressure on me and neither did (then-coach) Dean Blais. I just had to make my decision by a certain day.

"I know it's tough for the university to have guys leaving after their second and third years, and I don't know how you correct that. But when guys are getting signing bonuses close to a million dollars, it's tough to turn down. Mine wasn't half of that but...

"If you are offered a great deal, it's tough to turn down. If you could be guaranteed that same contract a year later, then I think guys would stay... but you aren't."

What is the best platform to trade real forex? I mean, considering most of the features, like if its trading software is good, if it's reliable, if the money transfer of deposit and withdrawen is fast, if it's convenient to do trading with it, if the support is fast and effective, and so on and so on. Is there any good platform support Paypal or has european bank account? Thank you for informations. I'm planning to do real trade, but first only with a mini account.

My friend and I were recently talking about the ubiquitousness of technology in our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
