None of our prospects are disappointing thus far, if you completely ignore Tyler Biggs.
I'm interested to see Kenny Ryan get back to action. Kenny made Spott pay dearly in his days as a Spitfire, so let's hope Spott gives him an opportunity.
I saw a replay on CBS Sportsnet the other night of a UNH game, and it appears like every year prior, Knodel has put in the work, and taken another step forward. He's light years ahead in his skating than he was when I first saw him, and he really leads by example on the ice. He maintains good gap control, plays physical, skates really well for his size, and has definitely taken on a more offensive role than in previous years. I think he had more shot attempts in one game than I saw him have in the games I saw him play last year.
Ross is underachieving as well, But so be it.
Ross needs to emulate Andrew Shaw and Kyle Clifford.
If he wants to be in the NHL, he'll have to be that kind of player.
What a waste of a 1st rounder gauthier was
Shaw is right mold to look at for sure. He needs to get that going in the A first though.
Donuts for Gauthier, Herzog, Finn, Brown tonight.
Only Rupert with an apple.
Finn why you no get point in 9-4 win ?
Rupert's fight from the other night
Ya that was a good scrap, so was hill and mccaron.
it's pretty clear that Guelph is good In spite of him...
I think Percy and Leivo are my Fav prospects right now. One is a big winger with all round skill and top 6 potential and the other is an two-way, minute eating Dman. Finn comes in a close 3rd.
Huge game in the OHL tonight, Guelph @ Erie. I'll be there as always, I'll be sure to keep an eye on Finn and post a little report after the game on how he and Brown both looked.
Toninato had assist last night.
5 pts in 9 gp
All 5 of his points coming in his last 6 games. Hopefully we get to see him at the WJCs as well
I really have no words for what happened in Erie tonight. Honest opinion? Matt Finn looked very, very bad in the third period/overtime. I don't mean to upset you Leafs fans but thats just the truth. Was out there for all three shorthanded goals Erie scored to tie it in the third, and his coverage was very loose on McDavid on the game winner. Just a bad game from him though, he's still a solid player.
Damn that sucks. Still had an assist but I guess you can't always play good. Looks like a few players were out for all those SH goals. Brown got a goal which is nice and first star. No update on him ?
Cameranesi picks up 3 assists (according to UMD's twitter feed)
For a guy who is 6'6, Mccaron is a terrible fighter. He needs to fight guys at least 5 inches and 30 pounds lighter to look intimidating.
Honestly Brown had a pretty rough game tonight save for that shorthanded goal (breakaway shot it five-hole). His space was limited offensively through the first two periods and he was just struggling a bit. He never quits though, he deserves captaincy every bit. Such a huge heart and just leads by example. Seems it has rubbed off on the rest of the group because I've never seen a comeback like that before.
Hill is also 6'6. I didn't Say he was a good fighter I said it was a good fight. There is almost 0 good fighters on the ohl they just all swing and don't protect
Bad games happen, I don't think any of us expect him to play perfectly every game.
He wasn't great the game before either correct?
not a problem, he's a prospect and a teen. it's not like he's going to be dropping logs of gold and silver every game.
finally getting it going? i was wondering what was happening with the fastest player in his draft.
Yeah I agree just a rough game. Rough game for the whole team, they folded with the lead. Here's the highlights if anyone is interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7DxBlTZlCU
