    Where is Jack Johnson playing? Is he injured? Is he going to be playing with the Hurricanes this year?

    I'm pretty sure he's playing NCAA this year, but I'm not sure what school he's playing for. He did not attend the 'Canes camp because it ruins his eligibility to play in the NCAA.

  5. Players for the US U-18's often join the team in the first place because it is the best place a young american hockey player can play while still retaining NCAA eligibility.

    The moment you sign a CHL contract, you are ineligible for NCAA play.

    As a whole, the only 18-year olds from the USA who will be in training camps are those who in the CHL.

    He's playing for Michigan and had a goal and 2 assists tonight. Get a clue.

    I assumed the poster of the thread wasn't familiar with some aspects of the NCAA policy. I tried to add something to what Battochio30 already explained. I mentioned a difference between US Junior system and the Canadian one.


    Did you read a word of my post before vomiting up that drivel?
    Get a clue.

    Yeah and you're clueless. Plus if you go by that crap it's useless as well. Because an NCAA player can go to training camp as long as they foot the bill.

    so are you he had 1 g 3 a. so try to take it easy.
     


  10. You got me on the "pay your own way" route; I assumed Johnson didn't pay his own way to camp. Good point. You got me on that.

    But what is wrong with the rest of what I said? If you have a big enough problem with what I wrote to respond like a teenager, at least explain yourself.

    Sorry i'm far from a teenager,yet wish I still was;) And i'm not trying to show you up with the him paying his way to camp.
     


  13. I never said you WERE a teenager; I took offense to your response.

    I personally don't see how telling me to "Get a clue" and then saying "you're clueless" is not trying to "show me up," but us arguing about this is ridiculous.

    Good to see Johnson did well; UM will need a lot from him with the hit they've taken in the offseason (and from the fact that their football team...well...) I thought he was the #2 player available last year, although if Brule were 2 inches taller and 20 pounds heavier he would have been my unanimous #2.

    Still liked Johnson though. And how was Cogliano?

    I'm not a Michigan fan to begin with. I watched both on TV last night and Johnson is a stud and Cogliano certainly didn't look out of place. Michigan is a young team with 11 freshman in the lineup,but with the talent they have I bet they are in the NCAA tourney.

    I went overboard with the clueless remark and I apologize for that as i thought you were serious with your initial remark.

    Man, I just left Cornell in 2003, and I'm already out of touch with the NCAA's...

    I blame Cornell. And the total of 12 hours a sleep I got there over 4 years :madfire: :D

    Putting this thread back on topic:

    Jack Johnson - WOW.

    Seen him in 3 of UM's 4 games so far. He lives up to the hype. He's already Michigan's 2nd best defenseman right now (behind junior Matt Hunwick), and he will be the #1 guy by the end of the year. He is as complete a player as I've ever seen at the NCAA level, and it blows my mind he's only 4 games into his career. If he was a forward he'd be incredible too.

    Friday night against Boston College he CRUSHED a BC forward at his own blueline, had a beautiful power play goal on a one-timer while moving backwards (!), and knocked BC goaltender Cory Schnieder's helmet off with a slapshot (!!!) Schnieder's lucky his head still wasn't in it. My God is he fun to watch.
     
  18. Man, I couldn't believe how good he was last year with USNTDP ... but I wondered about the level of competition in tournaments and some of the non-college games ...
    When I saw him against BC, he put all those questions to rest.
    He is dominating in skill, speed, and hitting ... incredible. I wonder if he'll have to tone down his hitting in the NHL, not being huge ... but probably won't be an issue.

    He may tone down the hitting once he reaches the NHL, or he may not. His idol growing up WAS Vladimir Konstantinov (who was an ferocious open-ice hitter) after all.

    Shut up before I track you down, throw honey on you, then throw you in the bear exhibit of the nearby zoo!
     

  22. Well, I've talked to him. I know he liked Konstantinov. But he especially patterns himself after his dad, who was a linebacker for U of M back in the day
     
  23. Phaneuf wasn't any bigger at 18. It's not going to be an issue. JJ will be 6'2 215/220 when he plays his first NHL game.
