Damn Brodin's skinny! Kid needs to eat a little bit more, take some bacon protein shakes or something.
Granlund is looking pretty meaty.
You appear to have left Lucia and Dregger off your spreadsheet/list.
Jesus, Labbe. Defend at least some goals, or something. Jeez
But it is a bit surprising/disappointing to see him already -8 only a few games into the season.
EDIT: And how does Almond(why do we still count him as a prospect?) have 43 PIM in six games? Did he suddenly turn into a straight goon?
Updated some of the heights and weights, here are the changes from last year (some of which might be even older):
- Belanger up 1" and 14 pounds
- Bertschy up 19 pounds
- Brodin up 14 pounds
- Bulmer up 29 pounds (!)
- Bussieres up 3 pounds
- DeJong up 11 pounds
- Draeger up 2 pounds
- Dumba down 3 pounds
- Fontaine up 7 pounds
- Gabriel up 8 pounds
- Gilmour up 1" and down a pound
- Graovac up 2" and 16 pounds
- Gunnarsson up 4 pounds
- Haula up 1" and 8 pounds
- Jobke up 1" and 15 pounds
- Kampfer down 3 pounds
- Kuemper up 1" and 12 pounds
- Labbe up 10 pounds
- Medvec up 1" and 39 pounds (!!!)
- Olofsson up 6 pounds
- Peterson up 6 pounds
- Philips up 1" and 21 pounds (!)
- Seeler up 1" and 30 pounds (!)
- Soucy up 9 pounds
- Zucker up 12 pounds
Gilmour and Kampfer lost weight? Busts.
Also, can we put Brodin on Medvec's diet?
Okay, NOW everything should be fixed, including updating teams to ones that actually exist
Phillips up 21 pounds? Must've been fun eating your way to 160.
Why is Scandella on the list?
Hockey's future listed their top prospects from 41-50 today. Matt Dumba is listed at 41. It's hard to take HF seriously when this was included in the write up...
"While reliable stalwarts Ryan Suter and Jonas Brodin will do their part to anchor the Minnesota blue line, neither player stands out with skill and skating ability quite like Matt Dumba."
I understand that Dumba is very good, but really? Suter and Brodin don't stand out with their skill and skating ability as much as Dumba?
I suppose I could take him off. Tweener.
A. Great job, really took some research to do this. Just want to say I'm sure that some of these players are probably heavier and just havent been updated (AKA Coyle, who is pushing 220).
Thanks for the hard work, though.
Well I just took the values off Wild.com, so in theory they are correct, although I would have thought Coyle and Granlund would have changed. But maybe they didn't update them.
Oh, I just looked up the training camp roster, here are some more updated values:
Coyle up 1" and 17 pounds
Brodin no change
Granlund up 6 pounds
Scandella up 1" and down 6 pounds
Planning on making a couple of these. A list of when the collegiate Wild prospects visit the State of Hockey for games.
How can Cody Almond still be a prospect?
More importantly, 43 PIM in 6 games?
The Wild technically still own his NHL rights...although I agree he shouldn't be on there regardless of playing in Switzerland or not.
Up to 45 now in 7 games.
Last year yes, but wouldn't the wild have had to qualify him again this year? Didn't happen. They don't own his rights perpetually. He walked away from his qualifier last year. Not under contract and was not offered one this year.
I grab everyone from the Wild's "in the system" page. There's some overlap with prospects who are out of sight and out of mind as well as recent NHL grads.
Sometimes I will include guys who aren't prospects but are in the minors because it's nice to see how they are doing. Like Dowell/Veilleux last year. I mean Blum technically isn't a prospect, but what if he has like 40 points halfway through the year? Nice to know.
Player's of interest
It would be a mistake to keep Dumba in the NHL. He looked fine last year as well but once he went back to the W, he struggled early on (some reasons not of his own making). I think sticking him back in the W would be best. Defensemen can take a while to develop and if we want Dumba to be physically ready, throwing him back in the W won't hurt his development and might actually help. Playing 8-10 minutes a night at best won't help him as much as playing 20+ a night in all situations in the W.
Aren't you even willing to give him a chance first? You haven't even seen him play a single shift yet and your already proclaiming that he's not ready? It's possible he's not ready, but it seems the organization thinks he pretty close or already there.
If he can help improve the blueline, then he should stay. If not, then he should be sent down. It's pretty simple, I think.
Fletcher on KFAN right now basically saying that he doesn't really want to send Dumba back as he won't be able to make much progression playing in his 4th season against 17 year olds. Essentially said it's a foolish rule that they can't get him to Iowa.
