Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Green Star, Apr 22, 2004.
Here ya go:
If Robbie Schremp drops past 10, I would be surprised.
Thanks man. Always like to read the Red Line...
With all this Russian uncertainty and this year being filled with high level Russian Prospects I wonder if we are going to see a move towards College and Easier to sign players?
People could rise not becaue of talent but because of signability...
Ahhh yes, the always entertaining RLR. I'm going to restrain myself from bashing it but I will say I'm a bit surprised to see Shawn Wellar on the rising list. This guy can be a good NCAA player but I don't think he's even close to being a "pretty safe bet" to make the NHL. He really does not have a great scoring touch and while he's a decent sized guy he is really not much larger than 6'0. His skating is fluid but not exceptional by any means.
He won't. Schremp just happens to be on Woodlief's hit list.
lol they spelt Alexander Ovechkin, Alexandre Ovechkin
The agreement expires in September right?
Its a good point. My bet is that it wont affect drafting when it comes to the top end talent in the 1st round. There'll just be extra pressure to get them signed early.
Hard to sign a guy when his home team or even home army starts to make demands....
That's one spelling of Alexander in Russian.
Interesting That Redline reports about this John Carter guy as well.
Proving to be a very interesting situation.
Actually it's Alexandr.
Only one spelling.
Anglicized, it is either, though.
Aleksandr is another rendering that you occasionally see.
When you get right down to it, it's not really technically correct unless it's in Cyrillic. It's more or less phonetic, and there is no single, absolutely correct and unassailable way to spell it in the Latin alphabet.
Russians use completely different symbols, so there can be no one correct spelling for his name in English. Or any Latin-based Language.
There's no rendering. Certain complex words cannot be transferred from cyrillic, others can.
Alexandr isn't complex. I can speak the language - it's Alexandr - nothing else.
Well if you're going to say that it's correct not to have an 'e' in there, how can you say it's correct to have an 'x'? Russian doesn't have one letter for that sound(s).
Aleksandr Ovechkin = Александр Овечкин
Evgeny Malkin = Евгений Малкин
Long time no see, on hf. Also, how did you know that?
Ah, it is magical after all.
you're right - it's aleksandr, to be more specific.
Yes, VERY interesting. Tonight is the first I hear of one John Carter. I'm getting a Vladimir Guerrero vibe from reading what little there is out there of him. Natural talent, things you can't teach, totally raw. If harnessed, the type of talent and storyline that could turn a lot of people on to this beautiful game. I have a feeling we'll all know who John carter is soon.
Is this John Carter the same John Carter who was drafted by the Ottawa 67's a year or two back in the OHL priority selection? Where does this Carter play now?
It could also be the other John Carter. The one who enters a cave in Arizona and wakes up on the planet Mars!
