Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by EroCaps, Jul 14, 2004.
I have to register to read, but I get the gist with the title.
I have played with and againt Wyatt, and he is an phenomenal JUNIOR B goaltender, not a good JUNIOR A goalie, nor a good WHL goalie, just a great JUNIOR B goalie. He's done tons for his junior b team, leading them to regionals twice, falling short both times, but the Washington Capitals Training Camp, or even Rookie Camp? I mean common, publicity stunt.
Wow just what we need more of, another goalie
Wyatt Russell tried out for the Prince George Cougars (WHL) a couple years ago. He had a great training camp until the intrasquad game, where he completely folded. He buckled under the pressure of a Major Junior intrasquad game, and was sent back to Jr.B.
Fedz is right. He is a Jr.B goaltender, possibly a Jr.A backup.
Interesting to say the least.................
Found out why he got invited to the prospect camp, apparently someone lost the goalie tarp that goes across the net and now the guys need to something shoot pucks at
I really cant figure out why he's even at the camp, last year the reason why Dlyan Hunter was there was pretty obivious but Russel is barried way down in the depth charts
I wouldn't read much into Wyatt being at the Capitals camp. It's their rookie camp right?
For instance, at Detroit's rookie camp Jim Nill's (assistant GM) son Trevor played. And so did a couple of local players.
How many Jr.B players get invited to NHL camps...even rookie camps? Jr.B is 2 steps below Canadian Major Junior.
Wyatt Russell was also drafted by the Florida WHA team in the WHA amateur draft. I find it hilarious that he is listed on the WHA site as playing for Langley of the BCHL.
Here are his Langley Stats...
Here's his real team...
I guess they want their prospects to be brimming with confidence after they light this poor kid up.
hanlon and kurt russell were playing golf together when russell mentioned his son and hanlon told him they needed another goalie.
that's how he got invited.
though i didn't see him personally, no one was really impressed with him at camp this week
Well Andrew Ladd and Raymond Sawada used to play for the PIJHL and look at where they are now, the 4th overall pick and the 52nd overall pick.
Ladd and Sawada did not get drafted to the NHL from the PIJHL.
Andrew Ladd lit up the WHL, and Sawada was among the BCHL's best when they got drafted.
Wyatt Russell is a Jr.B goaltender, and Florida's WHA team drafted him and listed him with a Jr.A team with whom Russell has only played just under 50 minutes for.
Founder's Franchise drafted him and last I heard the Founder's Franchise was likely going to be in Vancouver. Has this changed?
I was hearing Cincinnati. Apparently there are arena issues with Vancouver or something to that effect.
I saw Wyatt play earlier today and the kid is a lot better than people are giving him credit for.
He is somebody who has always played from behind the eight ball and based on what I saw from him today, he is FOCUSED on moving up the ranks.
We'll see how he does this year in Coquitlam but odds are (if given the ice time) he'll get his scholarship this year and then it's up to that team on how long he spends in the BCHL.
FYI... he had a shutout in 25 minutes today on about 16 shots
