Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by The Mars Volchenkov, Aug 25, 2005.
With deVries gone, he could be in the NHL this year.
Most excellent. All that is left is getting Kaigorodov out of Russia, but that is out of our hands I think.
I don't think we should get ahead of ourselves with Mesz. He was still making brain-cramps in Vancouver consistent with young defencemen. I expect to see them occur at a higher rate in the NHL.
I have no doubt he will be a top 3 d-man in the future, but I feel letting him be number 1 in Bingo will be better for him.
I think we should let Schubert take the job and sign York.
Keeping him out of the NHL also doesn't waste a year of the 7 required for UFA status.
Speaking of Kaigorodov whats the scenerio? is it money? or because he wants a guaranteed spot? cause if thats the case why not give him a spot and if it doesent work out he can go back and play in russia.
Not allowed to sign him as per Gary Bettman's orders due to the lack of a trasfer deal.
We can have him at the end of the year when his russian contract is up, if no transfer deal is signed this year.
I think Meszaros could use another year in junior, from what I observed last year(if he's 19, rather than 20), and at LEAST a year in the AHL before we start talking NHL for this kid. He's got some glimmer...but he's still pretty raw.
He will likely go to charlotte this year.
seriously though, charlotte is a beautiful city, folks.
Our echl farm team.
The chances of him going to the ECHL are zero.
Well I wouldn't say zero, because he could start the year in the AHL and REALLY struggle and find himself in the ECHL.
But yeah, you're right his likely destination is not the ECHL, at least I'm sure thats the last place Muckler and the Sens want him. He'll probably be given every chance to make the Sens roster and if he fails he'll be shipped down to the AHL or back to Vancouver.
Maybe but they would be able to call him up to bingo if he is in the echl.
But the thinking is that why sign a player like Mejzaros if you feel he's not good enough to challenge for a roster spot. They still had another year to get him under contract. If they felt he wasn't good enough to play in the NHL or the AHL, they'd probably just let him go back to Vancouver.
Defence prospects ussually take longer to break in to the NHL than forwards. If he was struggling at times still in Van it would benefit him to learn a little more in the Ahl or back with the Giants. Good prospect....why rush him.
