Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Llewzaher, Jun 18, 2007.
did anyone ever make it to the NHL?
No, It was a very weak draft class lol
That was all just a tv gimmick.
Mike Keenan devored all except the winner.
They didn't make the cut.
making the cut 2 was for a endorsement contract and not an nhl tryout wasnt it? a couple of the guys from the first one and the second one had a few games in the ahl and thats it... probably most of them are in the echl or in europe i bet
You beat me to it.
there is a couple playing AHLandECHL, taylor, macdonald, brine are the ones i know of off the top of my head. Taylor had 41 points in 37 games with florida in the ECHL and 0 points in 5 games with rochester. Brine 8 points 22 games with Rochester in the AHL, and 30 in 52 with Florida in the ECHL. MacDonald 2 in 11 with Rochester and 24 in 56 with Florida. Taylor and Brine look like pretty good players so far.
Tibbets had a strong year for the California penal league.
Mike Mole is in the Islanders system. He bounces between the ECHL and AHL, but next year he should see backup or starting duty in the AHL with Dubielewicz gone (assuming Bridgeport or NYI don't sign anyone).
He's a friend of mine, he's a good guy. Ottawa native. His dad is very high in the RCMP. He's expecting to make the AHL team.
Both Brine and MacDonald signed NHL Entry level contracts with Florida, and, as mentioned, both played in the AHL/ECHL this past season.
Rob Drummond is currently waiting for NHL invites to prospects camp... was expecting one from Coluimbus but after changing GM's who knows...
our guy James Demone is playing as a plugger in our AHL farm team. Funny, I remember Bowman saying
"They will all be in the NHL."
BTW we still have his rights. ANyone interested? You can have him for a 8th round pick.
Do you know who he signed the contract with? Bridgeport or NYI?
DeMone quit hockey after being switched to a forward at this years Moose Camp and then being demoted to the ECHL team.
Oh yeah, the CPL.
I don't think he has ever spent an entire year on the same team. He played in Finland last season for less than half of the season and switched teams after 4 games (he was on a try-out contract on the first team).
do you think there is any chanse he ever plays an NHL game. it would be a GREAT story.
Honestly, I could see it. Hell I could even see him developing into a back up goaltender on a consistent basis.
I was always a fan of his when he played for those terrible Ice Dog expansion teams. That was about the same time that I got into Junior hockey. His stats werent ever pretty but he kept them in a lot of games.
Outside of Sauga, he's put him good numbers where ever hes played, whether it be other OHL teams, ECHL or CIS. His numbers in the AHL were average, but it was his first full cup of AHL coffee, sort of speak.
I'd expect him to play a lot of games in the AHL this year and I expect him to play pretty well.Dubie should be in the show backing up Ricky, and the Isles don't really have a goaltending position to give to a prospect, so the Sound Tigers goalie position could be his for the taking.
He played for Hull in the British Elite League after leaving the ECHL. I don't think he's coming back to the UK for next season though
Yea im a Bulls season ticket holder and boy was he ever a rock for them.
Surely the RCMP frowns upon that type of behaviour!
