    Sam Gagner, Dave's son, should go rather highly if he continues to develop at the rate he has been. He took the NCAA route after daddy made it clear he wouldn't play in the OHL (was touted as a top 3 this draft year). Hopefully that choice doesn't hinder him in any way.

    Brent Sutters son Brandon in 2007. He has a strong season as a 16 year old in the WHL and was an assistant captain for Team Pacific (4 goals - 2 assists) at the U17 WC this year.

    Do you mean Christian Hanson? Yes, but I don't think he'll go before fifth or sixth round...if he gets drafted at all. He hasn't done much so far at Notre Dame.

    ...and yes, I've already seen the Irish play this season.

    What's the word on Lyon Messier?

    Round projection?

    Anybody who has grown up with Mark should definitely have some heavy NHL potential.

    On the US Under-17 team there are a few NHLers sons. There's Justin Vaive (son of Rick), Colin Wilson (son of Carey), and Phil McRae (son of Basil).

    7th round if anything. Not a skilled player at all and most likely will not even come close to getting drafted. The only reason he will be drafted at all is due to his last name.

    Both Vaive and McRae should be spectacular prospects.

    I'm praying the Leafs take Vaive strictly because of his name. (obviously in his projected round) The Leafs should do as much as possible to get the son of their former Captain as a prospect.

    I don't know for sure on this situation, but Vaive played for some American based teams (Chi and Buf). If his son was born in the U.S. when he was playing for Americans teams, then it's not unusual for the kid to be an American Citizen. Also, perhaps his wife is American.

    Vaive is horrible. I hope the Leaf's dont waist their draft pick on him. We're trying to re-build, not draft former players kids.

    While we're at it lets draft Belfour's kid too, I hear he's pretty bad. Should fit in fine with the Leafs.

    Theres an '89 named Hackett too, maybe we should draft him 1st round? :biglaugh:

    FYI, it's incoming and coming, not incomming and comming. I don't mean to be a spelling nazi, but people will never learn if they're never corrected.

    Well, I don't think playing for the NDTP makes him "American." It's just the route he's chosen to further his hockey career. I believe Colin Wilson is also in the same boat as Vaive. It's kind of like of the Brady Murray situation where he played for Team Western at the Under 17's and appeared at the summer development camp but also played for the US at the World Juniors. He played for whatever teams benefited him the most.

    Edit:
    Perhaps I've overcomplicated things and you're just wondering where they were born. In that case, Justin Vaive was born if Buffalo while his dad was playing for the Sabres, Colin Wilson was born near Hartford while his dad was playing for the Whalers, and Phil Mcrae's hometown is listed at Chesterfield, Missouri but he was probably born in Minnesota.

    I suggested we do it in the round warranted, which means DON'T take him too early. If he's slated for the 7th round, we take him in the 7th round.

    Rebuilding and taking former players sons can be the same thing.
