    Still don't know how Clague dropped to the 51st pick in the '15 draft, I remember saying I would have taken him at #20 that year.

    They have a mix of both. Fabbro, Foote, Timmins, Clague, Mahura are all good two way guys. Mete, Makar, and Ferraro are the only small/offensive types. Only guy that I would consider to be a real defensive liability is Jake Bean, and I think you could have made a case for Cholo to take his spot, but as I have been saying... they like continuity.

    Yup, and i remember him playing like **** at last years WJC. Just think it’s silly choosing him over Dennis just because he was on the team last year. It is what it is though :huh:

    I can't stand watching Jake Bean play, He looks so awkward out there... He won't amount to anything in the NHL.

    Cholo is an interesting one. It's almost like he should have been in last years draft. He is allot younger and under developed then his draft class.

    yep. All Cholo can do is keep playing for his team, use it as motivation to be better, and show how big of a gaff his not being selected was. Control what you can.

    I agree he sucked but unfortunately that is the way the team works.

    You mean the ‘16 draft? I thought I remembered him being super hyped to begin the year but then he had a slow start that was nowhere near the hype and could never really make up ground after that. Didn’t realize he had fallen all the way to 51 though. Was thinking he had a Foote-like fall.

    '16, sorry yes. He was ranked high going into his draft season. Understand him falling, but thought it was crazy how much he ended up falling.

    Kid was always a great skater and he's not small. He just got buried a bit on their depth chart, IIRC. Wasn't getting much PP time in his draft season. Really liked the tools there.

    I think he's going to be Canada's #1 guy in this tournament.

    Edit - I have warmed up to the pick since it was made

    Cholowski after a trade to Portland:

    2 games, 0+1, +2, 5 shots.

    Looks like he was the only defenceman on plus on that 5-4 win for Portland. They have won both games since he arrived. On both games he was +1.

    Dennis Cholowski in a 4-game point-streak for Portland. Has 0+6 on those games.

    Cholowski before Christmas:
    31 games, 8+19= 27 points (0.87 ppg)

    Cholowski after Christmas:
    11 games, 5+13= 18 points (1.64 ppg)

    Guy is heating up. It took only 1 game to adjust for Portland roster. That Portland-debut is his only game without points since Christmas.

    Very nice numbers. Looking at highlights I love how easy he makes it look. The points he's getting are not the result of carelessly pinching or being a "4th forward". It's mostly smart passes, well placed point shots, good outlets, that type of stuff.

    His goals usually are ones, where he skates on the slot for "better percetages", and then snipes. Just smart, this guy has has good brain.

    Assists have usually come from PP quarterbacking (at Prince George).

    He will be a nice tool to have.

    As for Comparison, Filip Hronek went last year in OHL like this:

    Before Christmas:
    27 games, 5+18=23 points (0.85 ppg)

    After Christmas:
    32 games, 9+29= 38 points (1.19 ppg)

    He also trended upwards.

    Did hunt for this old thread and looks like I had made some Christmas data in here.

    Cholowski before Christmas:
    31 games, 8+19= 27 points (0.87 ppg) and +5.

    Cholowski after Christmas:
    38 games, 6+33=39 points (1.03 ppg) and +24.

    So after his hot streak he cooled a bit down, but still kept his after-christmas scoring over ppg.

    So far Cholowski has 3 goals in 4 WHL playoff games. No assists.

    All stats combined so far from WHL, 73 games, 17+52=69 points, +29.

    D-man Cholowski grows into new role with Cougars

    In this article the explanation for that to happen was just his late-growing.

    So he was 5'5-5'6 then, now 6'1 or even possibly 6'2.

    More in here:

    Hockey-addicted Cholowski grows as a player for SCSU

    About the Weight side:

    Red Wings prospect Dennis Cholowski has gotten bigger, stronger in last year


    All are articles from last summer or older. I wonder where he goes at next season...

    From Athletic article, analyzes from two coaches about Cholowski...

    Portland coach Mike Johnston:
    As Johnston spoke, he was more describing a type of player:
    Dominique Duharme, Team Canada WJC coach:

    Things sound good. .. way to go Dennis. :)

    Too bad Portland did lost the 4th game for Everett in a devastating way. They took a 2-1 lead at 57th minute. But Everett scored twice one minute later... and won the game. Series now 1-3.

    Too bad Portland lost? On the contrary I would think. Let's get them booted out of the playoffs so he can report to Grand Rapids and get his feet wet on an AHL playoff run against men instead of a playoff run against other kids in the WHL!

    Assuming he jumps in seamlessly and isn't watching the games from the stands.

    It's more about a guy joining a team 75 games into a season rather than the organization holding him back.

    Clague was one of the big misses with our 2nd pick.
    I thought Timmins might slip to us for a few minutes there.
