Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Default101, Aug 16, 2006.
what rookie tournaments are out there for next month? anyone have any links to sites and rosters?
Jackets roster for the upcoming Traverse City tourney.
Rangers, Red Wings, Thrashers, Stars, Blue Jackets, Lightning, Minnesota and St. Louis are teams that will be in that Traverse City tournament that starts sept. 8th and ends the 12th.
Havne't seen any rosters yet cept the one for the Jackets above.
Jackets will be tough to beat with that roster!
Until you come across the Rangers that is
Should be a nice little tournament though.
Any idea what its gonna look like? If you had to guess?
Staal, Dawes, Immonen, Dubinksy, Sauer, Korpikoski, Sanguinetti, Moore, Jessiman, Baranka, Callahan, Helminen, Pyatt, Russell(Kris' twin brother), Bahensky, Graham i guess for starters. Im sure not all of those will attend(though they should) and a few others will go instead. Im not sure if Al Montoya will be ready to get yet after having surgury in May, but hes suppose to be back in time for the start of the AHL season.
Dallas (just released today)
Rangers Roster just announced
Wow, Rangers have a huge team going compared to everyone else, 31 players in total.
To break it down:
Rangers - 31 Players (1 AHLer excluding goalies)
Tampa - 25 players (2 AHLers excluing goalies)
Jackets - 24 Players (0 AHLers)
Thrashers - 23 Players (2 AHLers excluding goalies)
Stars - 23 Players (5 AHLers excluding goalies)
St Louis - 22 Players (1 AHLer excluding goalies)
Wings - 22 Players (1 AHLer excluding goalies)
Wild - 20 Players (4 AHLers excluding goalies)
When i say AHLers i mean players who played last year in the AHL, not going into their rookie seasons.
id pissed i cant go2 traverse city this year.. minn is going to have a TON of talent, voloshenko, sheppard, pouliot, thelen, its actually very disgusting.. lol... nyr is gonna be throwing around montoya (not a fan), staal, ect.. while stl is gonna have schwarz there... very intersting
there are definately some notes of interest with the ranger's roster. Correy Potter's inclusion meens they're still trying to sign him. And I'm alittle surpised to see a Furrer there, as I thought we'd never hear from the kid. It's also worth noting that alot of the more advanced guys (Dawes, Immonen, Baranka) won't be going.
Good to see that Sauer is ready to go after the mild concussion he got at the WJC camp.
Since when is Benoit Pouliot a Lightning Prospect?
Ummm, why is Benoit Pouliot listed for the Lightning?
Lol, good catch by both of you at the same time...guess its a misprint of someone else.
Yeah pretty interesting stuff.
I'm thinking that thy pretty much have Dawes and Immonen in the known quantities category, but I'm a little surprised about Baranka's absence. Wonder if he will be added later. I'm really looking forward to reading coverage on this tournament.
Pouliot is off the Tampa roster now. It was obviously just a mistake.
I wonder why Fiala isnt on the Wild roster...
Nice to see Kyle Bailey is on the Minn. roster. After the injury he had in the playoffs, nice to see his name there. I'm hoping the lack of a uniform number doesn't have any significance, that Bailey really is playing in the tourney.
The schedule for the Pacific Division tournament from September 8-12 (including practice times), ticket information, and the Kings roster is up on the Kings website. Kopitar and Tukonen will be there although apparantly Anze has changed his first name to "Bud" or it's just another typo.
I guess there's no rookie tournament in Ottawa this year?
Sucks if so.
