    Gilbert Brule with 1g 2a last night moves into a tie lead for the WHL scoring
    race.This guy is really stepping it up a notch in his draft year with an almost
    2 pts a game average.The 2005 draft players are living up to their billing as one
    of the best and deepest in years.Alex Bourret who is ranked approx.25-35 is
    back after a suspension and he now has 14pts in 7 games.I wonder if we could get a sticky thread started to track the top ten players pt production.It might be
    harder to track the players outside the CHL but i'm sure someone in those players
    regions can update us.We could also track some notables like Bourret who are not
    in the top ten yet but look like they might be playing there way towards that.

    Also I forgot to mention,I think Brule's play is going to force Canada to look at
    him for the World Juniors.I know I'd like a chance to get to see him play.
    Anyone see the game last night?

    (about to commit HF Boards sin). Brule and Crosby on the same line would be sick.

    Brule will get a very good look at the junior camp this year, provided he doesn't pull a groin during practice or breaks a leg in a stupid ski accident. (it happens it happens) I think he'll make the team even in a deep ass year like this one. Had there been a season, Latendresse might have had a shot as well.

    Doooo yooou have aaaanny idea what this years edition will look like??

    Unless there is a lock-out or strike in 06 they are most likely not going to be nearly as good as this year...

    Nash
    Bergeron
    Horton
    Stewart
    Phaneuf...

    Just for starters...

    This year could still have Crosby AND Brule.. it will just be tricky to get everyone enough ice-time if the NHL boys play...

    Only if there's still a lockout, cuz Crosby will for sure be in the NHL by then. Perhaps next year is more realistic, as the NHL could still be locked out, although if there isn't a lockout Crosby will be in the NHL for sure next year anyways.

    Nash is not eligible for this years juniors. Horton, Bergeron and Burns are the only eligible NHLers

    I think Canada well have to look at Brule very close. I think this means bad things though for a guy like Eric Fehr or Steve Bernier, Travis Zajac ect. Because Canada well look to add a younger talent who can play down the road.

    Brule is an elite talent, Now I would never say he's a better player then Ovechkin, but much like Malkin, we'll be hearing about how this guy should go #1 overall in most drafts.

    -??????-

    with all the returneesfrom last year + the NHLers being a near certain lock... this only leaves 2 spots open for...

    Perry, Ladd, Picard, Zajac, Roussin, Chipchura, Fehr, Brule and Bernier. I think that Perry would be a great fit on the wing on a scoring line. Doesn`t leave much room for a younger, less experienced Brule... :dunno:

    I dont think there is any way that Eric Fehr doesnt make team Canada this year.....not to mention that Ryan Stone has to have a real good shot at making team Canada this year.The 2 of them together are deadly.

    Yeah according to the Wild. But he played last tourney as a forward and did ok. So he might be back at forward.

    ...or on D or not at all. who knows?

    Skill wise I agree. But Burns is bigger, older, more experieneced and has played in the NHL as a teenager. the WJC is a tournament mostly for 19 year olds and Brule is still 17 I think. We have tons of talent already, I think mgt. will go with experience rather than with a 2nd underager after Crosby.

    Brent Burns was the reason we lost the final last year.

    Don't you think they'll look at ability to play hockey first and foremost? Brule obviously has gobs of talent and scoring ability, but I think some people here underestimate how good an energy line guy he would be. He has a good stick and throws his body around like crazy (and he takes runs as everybody, big or small). I honestly think Burns is pretty good to make it but Brule takes Jeff Tambellini's spot from last year.

    On the experience note, don't they have enough experience considering the fact that almost the whole team will be returning?

    Dixon could be on the outside looking in when the final roster is selected. There are just so many good players available this year.

    Also injuries will most likely play a part in any final roster named in December.

    I'm also not sure, but has the AHL given the green light for the Horton, Bergeron and Burns to play in the WJC?
