    wonder what Mrb1p will think of that last one. Though I've had 'IQ' concerns with him myself, I don't know if the problem (or what I perceived COULD be a problem) was directly IQ related. But really I saw only a few occasions. Would be nice that I'm mistaken and that it's actually an asset. Really hope he can have a season that shows a pretty dramatic improvement on this one. He can be a really good one but I'm on the fence whether he can make it happen or not. I think he can be a helluva complimentary winger potentially.

    I think you have to go with Ylonen. Ikonen had a really surprising turn around while coming back from injury. He looked stronger and faster imo anyways. I just feel like Ylonen has more dimensions to his game.

    I almost completely wrote Ikonen off seeing how slow he was at the WJCs paired with how small he was. If he's committed to working on those things he could still be a player. I also haven't seen enough of Ikonen's game to really say but I still give the edge to Ylonen.

    CSKA wins the Gagarin Cup as they swept Avangard Omsk. Romanov barely played, if at all, during the playoffs. However, he is a Gagarin champion in a his rookie year.

    Damn I keep forgetting about Romanov lol. Our prospect pool is so big now. I'm still used to it just being Juulsen and Scherbak.

    :laugh:

    And if Habs pick 10 times this year as expected, the pool will be even deeper.

    it's going to be even harder to keep track of all of them next year when we add another 10 unless they trade some picks/prospects at some point. We have 33 prospects current with 10 more on the way, although we will lose a few depending on who out of Tyszka, Walford, McCarron, Lernout, Audette, Koberstein, Henrikson are signed or re-signed. I don't count Lindgren and Gustav Olofsson since one is 25 and the other turns 25 2 months into next season. Plus that's not counting Juulsen, Mete and Kotka.

    So we could be looking at around 38 prospects plus if they add any undrafted guys between now and the start of next season. I've been heavily involved with ranking/following out prospects since around the '98 draft, much more so by the '00 draft for sure and if we do end up with say around 39 prospects that might be the biggest I can recall.

    On WJC, If Poehling was MVP and Romanov the dman of the tournament, Ylonen could almost win a Jacques Beauchamps type of award if it exists. I realy like Ikonen. I called him a late 1st rounder in his draft year and still have a lot of untapped potential, but Ylonen has been realy impressive this year and I have to put him in front. We should keep both and just wish that only one of them can complete KK one day

    I'm a big Yolo fan. Guys his size, that skate like him, and have his skill, and play with his pace... they don't come around often.

    I was pretty hard on the farm system at the end of last year and the start of this year but I'd say it's the strongest it's been in a while and maybe the best since Timmins was hired as the only other time would be '08 where you had Price, Subban, McDonagh, Pac, the Kostitsyn's, Halak, etc...

    I still have a number of question marks on the offensive upside of guys like Poehling, the defensive abilities of Fleury, what Romanov's upside really is, what if any of the smallish skilled group of Ikonen, Hillis, Fonstad, McShane, Stapley can do for us in the NHL. But there's a lot to like in how deep we are, as the top 9 or 10 are very impressive for this time of year right before the draft when guys like Kotka and Mete don't even count.

    Just thought Id do a quick recap with our prospects in the CHL for the inquiring minds.

    Game 6 of Guelph vs Saginaw today. Saginaw leading 3-2 in the series but Suzuki is the point leader in the playoffs with 29 in 16 games. Tied for 1st in goals with 2 other players and 1st in assists.

    McShane's season ended Wednesday after being swept by Ottawa and he tallied 14 points in 15 games

    Fonstad still alive as the Raiders are leading 3-2 in their series, Could clinch a spot in the final vs Vancouver if they win today. He only has 4 points in 13 games

    Last but not least, Rouyn-Noranda and Teasdale are waiting for their opponent for the final between Halifax and Drummondville. Teasdale is 2nd across the board in point, goals (behind Lavoie in those 2) and assists with 11 goals and 15 assists in 14 games.

    So we do have the possibility of having a Habs prospect in 3 teams for the Memorial Cup which would be awesome.

    the end

    I was asked by a friend to find a comparable to Joel Teasdale's game.I came with Andrew Shaw for how good he is in front of the net. I feel though that his skating strides are much more fluid than Shaw's.

    Anyone else as a comparable NHLer?

    What do you mean by that? Is 6'0 and 170 pounds suppose to be an impressive feature?

    He's 6'1", but it's not that he's huge, just that he has the skating and skills of someone under 6 foot.
