    Cape Breton Screaming Eagles...

    Do any of you saw some games of the Screaming Eagles? I would like to know how their two first draft pick are doing...James Shappard and Dean Ouellet.

    I've seen the Screaming Eagles live, as well a couple games on TV already this year. I've been very impressed with Sheppard. He's got size, speed and I think with more experience, his scoring touch will develop. To be honest, Ouellet hasn't impressed me that much. He's not bad, but he's not particularily big and I haven't been that impressed with his skill level.

    James Sheppard is the real deal. I've only watched him once in the QMJHL but had the oppertunity to see him numerous times with the Subways. He is the all around package that Eagles fans will really enjoy once developed.

    As for Ouellet, I know zilch.

    I saw Sheppard play in Shawinigan on saturday and in Hull on sunday. Although he won't put up very big numbers this year, he's QUITE the player. He's still young, and shows alot of promise.

    Ouellet seemed speedy and small, but not particularly dangerous.

    Sheppard i would take on my team anyday..

    Hes such a complete player :) He wont put up the numbers that Breault and Reindeau will put up but he is already one of the better 2 way forwards in the league. 6'02 199 and can skate. Total package.

    His offensive game will come around in the second half.

    Not to be picky, but I live with a bunch of Cape (not Cap) Bretoners and they are collectively losing their minds that you spelled it wrong.

    I am a Cape Bretoner, and it makes me lose my mind as well. However, it's not spelled wrong, Cap Breton is Acadian, still makes me lose my mind, I have this discussion often with my g/f who is French.

    btw, Sheppard rocks.

    Was at the game last night in Charlottetown and have the following on the players in this thread:

    Dean Ouellet - Good skater, other then that though, wasn't a very noticable player out there. I didn't really get a good feel for him so I won't say anything more other then he didn't stand out at all.

    James Sheppard - Saw a fair amount of ice, played some on the PP. Again, wasn't a real standout but he is just 16. A real big kid with some years left to fill out even more. Will be a great great player in the league with a few years under his belt. Seems to be strong enough at this point too.

    Adam Pardy - Logs a lot of ice on the Eagles blueline. A huge frame but he is awkward as hell. Not a good skater at all!! You know it is bad when the G/F is sitting beside you, who is not a big hockey fan by the way, and she says, "That guy can't skate and he is very awkward!" Big and strong and has 10 goals on the season from the backend, but I can't see anything more then a 5th or 6th AHL D-man out of this kid. Trukno stripped him of the puck in the last minute and scored into the empty net making him look stupid, broke his $300.00 stick on the net and had an assist. Those were his plays of the game.

    Overall, this team didn't really impress me that much. They had 26 shots on Mior but not a lot of good scoring chances. The Rocket did a good job playing defensively and shutting them down, while capitalizing on their opportunities.

    You caught them on their worst game in quite some time. Up untill the christmas break the Eagles were one fo the hottest teams in the Q but then lost their top two players in Dixon and Sheppard. Culligan was also lost.

    Just to add a little to this...Sheppard played very well for Team Atlanitc at the Under 17's, this year. He helped his team win the Bronze and was second leading scorer on the team. In 6 GP he posted 6 goals 4 assist for 10 points.

    That is what fans say.

    "We won"

    "We lost"

    "We have a good team"

    "We suck"

    Are you new to hockey or something? Or do you just like being a Dick?

    That will make your opinion of the CB players even more credible. (Actually they werent that credible to begin with considering you used 1 game to formulate an opinion on them) Thanks for that tid bit of info on those players. I know where I can file them...

    Sorry that I said they didn't impress me that much for that game. Sorry I didn't analyze their schedule to see that they were on the last game of a long road trip as that was their excuse. I said what I thought of each player in that game, NOT the whole season!!!!!!
