    Sharks selected 6-2 200 Defenseman Micheal Vernace in the 8th round at the 2004 entry draft. At the moment he is playing for the Brampton Battallion.

    His numbers are 11 5 4 9 1 8 ....11 games, 5 goals, 4 assist, 8 PIM.

    Those are equal to Wojtek Wolski's numbers if I'm not mistaken.

    Has anyone seen this guy? Any thoughts would be great since I can't find anything on him except at the Sharks page on this site.

    We can't say who is a steal until they make the NHL. Also like many people are saying about Jason King, wait until the end of the year to make a judgment.

    Agreed, but it's hard to ignore this guys numbers, He hardly played last year but shined when he did, and now he's putting up these numbers early, makes you wonder if he's just starting to bloom.

    Basically I want to know how this guy plays, skating, physical? Hands...ect. Thanks.

    No doubt those are awesome numbers, but if he can keep his play up, and play like this for the rest of his career then yes he can be considered a steal.

    Just because you can score in Junior Hockey DOES NOT mean you can score in the NHL.

    Johnathan Paiment (6th rd pick 2004) is 6th in the Q in points and 3rd in PPG. And Im not talking about just defensemen, everyone. Thats better than Picard, Bernier, Hennessy, Latendresse and Zagrapan.Yet they all have better futures. Stats dont mean much.

    Where does any poster claim it does??? Are you having issues? Is your mom restricting your game-boy advanced time? Not "interacting well" with the other kids at school? Start being nicer. :)

    Sami Lepisto has looked really good. The Caps may have stolen one there!

    Joe Pavelski may be a steal. He's on Robbie Earl's line.

    Sami Lepistö: GP11 2+2=4 +6 -2= +4 0PIM all of them from what I gather to be powerplays, 38 shots @ 5,26% shot efficiency.. he's done well and looked good, too bad the sm-liiga site doesnt show minutes played anywhere..

    But Lepistö is no steal imho. He was touted as a 1st round pick after the WJC and slipped closer to the draft, but every team in the NHL should have known that he's a really solid prospect, being overaged probably cost him a higher draft rank, as did his size. But every team out there should have known exactly what kind of prospect he is/was.

    Still, hmm, I think he should have gone somewhere about the halfway mark of the 2nd round, so essentially half the teams imho passed up on him for someone else. I woudnt call it a steal yet, but certainly a better pick than many ahead of it, but there's a lot more for time to tell before we can judge.,.

    Did no one else notice there is a question mark in the thread title?
    Poor Sharkie gets jumped all over just because he's a little excited this guy might be good and wants to know more about him.

    Exactly. If the others would just take 10 seconds to read his post a bit more accurately, they'd know that he doesn't make any claim but is looking for information.

    Seriously...can't we be fans and have some enjoyment? Everyone on this board is such a damn critic (myself included ha!). We all need to chill out from time to time and just have some fun and be excited when we see one of our own prospects does well. Hey, I harp on Sharkie all the time, but I'm trying to cut down, I swear! :)

    Dylan hunter went in the 9th round and he's putting up some good numbers in the OHL. Although the fact he has Perry, Bolland and Scremp around has to contribute a little to those.

    Actually, the title's question is, "who will be 2004 draft's steal?" And then sharkie answers it himself. "Michael Vernace". So there is a legitimate reason why some people attack him for that. :teach:

    Back to Remedial Reading with ya...the title says "2004 Steal? Michael Vernace"

    Granted he should have placed a "?" after the kid's name but its not like he is declaring Vernace the end of all steals of the draft. There is no legitimate reason to attack a person who is asking for a scouting report. They just have nothing substantial to offer and try to bring others down to their level.

    I think you are more likely to get a steal in the 8th round from Europe. Hoping for one out of the juniors where every team has a scout that has seen him has a greater chance of futility.

    Alright, everyone back away from the thread.

    Let's begin again. Who here can tell me something about Michael Vernace that has seen the young man play the game?
