    Look out for Jordan Caron. That kid is GOLD. He'll be a top 10 pick in 2009.

    Was Tavares too young to be picked?

    Crosby played in it at a younger age.

    Tavares isn't too young to be picked, he probably just wasn't released from the OHL, because he's too valuable to his team there.

    I remember early in my days here that somebody said that Devon MacAusland (at age 12) had superstar-level talent. That stuck with me because I had no idea at the time how early hockey scouts watched these kids and made that type of judgment.

    Guys like Sauve and Cormier are not doing that well this year in the Q. I know they are just 16 but they did not showed me much.

    Jordan Caron impressed me a lot this year though and should go 1st round next year.

    Quebec:
    Kevin Poulin (Possibly the best goalie prospect since Luongo and Fleury from the Q)
    Jordan Caron (a potential top prospect for 2009 NHL draft)
    Louis Leblanc (A potential top 5 pick in this years QMJHL draft, might go NCAA)
    Simon Despres (top D-man for the QMJHL draft, very very skilled)
    Yann Sauve (1st overall pick last year QMJHL, top 10 potential for 2008)

    That is interesting. Maybe scouts will watch someone tagged as special to see if they can establish a track record of improving every year, and at each level of hockey that they play. This might indicate that the kid will be able to adjust to each level of competition that he plays at (including the NHL), instead of being someone who has a good junior career, and can't take it any further.

    This is speculation on my part, and nothing more.

    MacAusland is a wicked player, but hes the same size now as he was at 12 :)

    5'06 140

    You have to watch him though, hes pretty good. He says hes going NCAA but if he wanted to play in the Q he would be a top 10 pick this summer.

    Well 12 is a tad young...I think CHL scouts start watching players at the Bantam level. (WHL Drafts Bantam aged players so perhaps they start watching them a bit before OHL and QMJHL scouts).

    I know most Q teams like to watch players for 2 years. At age 14 in Bantam and then 15 at the Midget-Level, it helps them see the progression from year to year. Kind of like NHL scouts do for players going from their 16 yo season in junior to 17.

    Well for your Sauve and Cormier stuff well in their defense, Sauve is a defenseman...he is being held back a bit this year to work on defense...he will get increased duties next year, and he is getting increased now and is playing great IMO for a rookie d-man in the league. Cormier is playing great, he creates alot of space for his guys on the ice in Rimouski and plays tough, his skill is evident by his play, he is very very skilled power forward and you can see that if you watch him, he is doing fine...points might not be going up so easy but he isn't doing bad with the points either, he will be a big time producer next year you can see it.

    Tavares is not too young. He played in the world under-17 hockey challenge last year, then graduated to play for Canada's under-18 team in Sweden last spring. That made him ineligible to play in Canada Winter Games this year.

    Not sure, but if Tavares hadn't played in under-18 last year, he might have been able to play in CWG this year.

    For example, anyone know if Landon Ferraro of B.C. and Brandon Gormley of P.E.I. will be allowed to play next year in world under-17 hockey challenge or are you limited to one year of this tournament. In the past, there have been examples of guys playing more thanone year I believe.

    Just agreeing on what you said about Cormier. It's clear from watching him that he has the skills, it is just a matter of him putting all the pieces of his game together.

    I've been watching a lot of this tournament.

    Stamkos, Eberle, Pietrangelo, Hodgson, Beach, Ferraro, Tessier have all been very good. Travis Bobbee and Eric Mestery have looked really solid too. I like David Toews a lot. He's a buzzsaw. Easy to see why he would have been a mid-late first rounder in the WHL had he not been bound for NCAA (probably).

    I love watching Manitoba, no stars but they hit and bang like crazy. For such a small team it's amazing that they can throw it around like that.

    I expect Ontario to win the gold tonight, but if Manitoba's goaltending was a little more experienced I think they would have won it all. Not that they can't, but Ontario has a lot of dangerous OHL players going against a good but intimidated AAA midget goalie - and that might be too much.
