    Where do you guys see him going, presuming there is a draft before September? Personally I think he'll go around twentieth, I'd love to see him in a Flames jersey.

    Hard to say given his total flameout the last two months of the season and the playoffs. He seemed to be about 15-20 before that. The upcoming U-18 tourney will be huge for him, probably more important than for anyone else on that team.

    important to remember just how injured he was during the last eight weeks of the season. He probably shouldn't have even been playing to be honest.

    Then why is he at the U18's?

    I still would take him in the 15-20 range.

    Because he's one of the better players available to Canada? And, obviously, for reasons already discussed: He didn't have a great second half, and this is his last opportunity to raise his stock again.

    Setoguchi to Anaheim as a replacement for Kariya.

    I hope that is the reason for his poor play, because he was AWFUL and had no on-ice desire whatsoever.

    I still think he'll be in a Blades uniform next fall, but Mollekon has said changes are definitely coming this off-season... it'll probably be guys like Rabbit, Svensson, and maybe a d-man like Haw that won't survive the summer in Saskatoon.

    If he was so badly injured, shouldn't he be taking time to recover? I think that's what the other poster was insinuating.

    :D :D I am from Prince Albert (the team the blades lost to 4-0) so I was quite happy about that. He is a small, finesse player with good overall skills. 15-20 range sounds about right.

    I think this had a lot to do more with Seto being bumped from line to line. There were periods where he was playing on the fourth line with Chris Cloud and Ben Van Lare. Most players in this league would have trouble putting up points on that line.

    I would counter that if you're showing no desire and getting but on Van Lare's line... just what are you doing?

    Seto should be versatile... he's got the skills to do that. He can be an energy player, a top line sniper, even a PKer if he worked at it. He needs those kinds of wake-up calls... Mollekon was probably demanding something out of him by putting him on that line.

    I'm still a big Setoguchi fan, but he has a lot to learn.
