Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Weber Fan, Aug 12, 2005.
Anyone has info on the summer camp???
I'm heading up to whistler tonight.
Should look ALOT like the Under-18 team we had in March/April (cant remember when the tourney was). i think only 2 players from last year is eligible to come back, and one of them is Crosby (who I dont see coming back).
It will be similar but not close to the same.
They'll have a few players from that club for sure though.. probably up to 8
A report would be very appreciated...Look at the 3 best players...Price, Latendresse and Chipchura!!!
First intersquad game is tonight, for anyone in Whistler or that area.
You never know what's going to happen over the course of the winter but here is my prediction:
7. Brendan Mikkelsson
13. Michael Blunden
14. Steve Downie
3 best? Forget about Brule, and Pouliot?
I have something similar, but ROGERS?! If he makes the team, I'll cry.
Here's what I'm thinking:
I haven't seen all of the forwards before though, so after seeing them this weekend I'll have a better idea of who to expect to fill in the 10-13 or so forward spots.
I suspect he might be a Habs fan.
U20 Junior Camp Roster
Sutter focused on players
Coach Brent Sutter says he's more interested in evaluating the 44 players attending the world junior team development camp than worrying about the one who isn't here.
Hockey Canada announced on Friday that forward Sidney Crosby will be unable to attend Canada's 2006 National Junior team development camp in Whistler and Vancouver, BC, August 10-16 because of commitments to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Goaltenders: Carey Price, Devan Dubynk
Defence: Cam Barker, Luc Bourdon, Mark Fistric, Scott Jackson, Brendan Mikkelson,
Ryan Parent, Marc Staal
Forwards: David Bolland, Alex Bourret, Gilbert Brule, Kyle Chipchura, Kris Chucko, Blake Comeau, Guillame Latendresse, Bryan Little, Kendall McCardell, Evan McGrath, Ryan O'Marra, Benoit Pouliot, Wojtek Wolski
Hmmm... Kris Chucko?
Mark Fistric - Ryan Parent
Andy Rogers - Luc Bourdon
Cam Barker - Marc Staal
Spare - Branden Mikkelson
Gilbert Brule - Andrew Cogliano - Daniel Bertram
Benoit Pouliot - Evan McGrath - David Bolland
Alex Bourrett - Kyle Chipchura - Kris Chucko
Guillame Latendresse - Ryan Garlock - Devin Setoguchi
Spare - Wojtech Wolski, Steve Downie
I like your roster, good mix of skill and grit on offense and the defense looks solid. Id have Julien Elis Plante in goal ahead of Price as well
Hopefully Mikkelson makes it. Then a Duck prospect yet again makes it. I'll definetely have a tough time at this WJC. Even though I'm Canadian, I'll definetely be tempted to cheer for the States team with Bobby Ryan on it.
Does anyone think Kris Russel has even an outside shot at making the team? I know he's very small for a defenseman(in fact, he's quite small for any position), but he does move the puck and skate well.
However, it seems there are just too many quality defensemen in front of him.
If Barker makes the team, which he will, then Kris Russell should be there too. Ask any Medicine Hat fan who their best defenseman was and more will say Russell than Barker. I've seen it first hand. I can see Comeau and Downie being on the same line and that could be fun to watch. Comeau just better be disciplined and play a full 60 minutes, not just 2 periods.
I think im beautiful
The Funk has no chance on D?
Intra squad games, etc
Does anyone know where news can be found about how things are going at the evaluation camp, the intra squad games, etc, the 1st one was FridayI believe
The goaltenders shone in the first intersquad game according to an article in The Province.
Team Red took it 3-2.
Comeau, Downie and McGrath scored for them and Ellis-Plante saved 24 of 26 shots for the win.
Cogliano and Gagnon scored for Team White while Dubnyk saved 35 of 38 shots.
Sutter: Games will sort out players
The next few days will help head coach Brent Sutter and his staff get a better handle on which players will form Canada's team at the next world junior championships.
