    He's looked soooooo good but it's hard to show it when you're second banana to Brett Leason and playing on the 3rd line with 16-year-olds.

    Bold statement.

    Imagine making that statement about a late round pick.

    Huge cajones.

    I saw in the Memorial Cup thread some discussion about the LDs (Tyszka & Walford) the Habs haven't signed. They still have a bit of time so maybe they still do, but I think it's wise to be prudent with those signatures. There are a lot of LD floating around so I think it's smart if the Habs aren't sold on the 2 they drafted to hold off and use the signatures on guys they believe in.

    I'd definitely sign Walford. He was great this season.

    Tyszka I'm more unsure on.

    Also Fonstad played well tonight, as did Teasdale.

    Something of note about Fonstad... he's one of the most disciplined players in the WHL which is usually a very high PIM league. Fonstad has just 18 PIM in his last 2 seasons, and 34 PIM in 310 GP. (His whole WHL career)

    To put that into perspective, our last forward prospect in the AHL, Matt Bradley had 200 PIM at the same age, or 488% more penalty minutes, and he was of a similar stature as Fonstad, but less gritty/physical. (didn't think it was fair to compare skilled forwards and tough defensemen when it came to PIM so I used Bradley as an example instead of Brook/Tyszka/Walford/Juulsen)

    I feel a little awkward disagreeing with you. You've watched him a lot more than I have and you definitely watch the WHL more than I do. But I have to say from what I've seen Fonstad looks so disciplined because he rarely engages and is usually on the perimeter. He has excellent speed and decent hands with a very good shot but this kid engages opponents less than Drouin. Maybe he is hurt like someone mentioned. I've only started watching him with the start of the playoffs and an undisclosed injury may explain his play.

    Unless he ups his hockey IQ and learns to place himself in optimal positions where line mates can feed him, I don't see much of a pro career for him. He has excellent speed, good hands and a decent shot but I don't think that's enough. His positioning on the ice has been terrible every time I saw him, and he rarely engages opponents. I also don't like his defensive game.

    I'm such a highlight scout but there's something about his game I'm not too thrilled about. Can't really put my finger on it. I know some people are high on him but I just don't know. I'll defer to people who actually have seen him. Next year will be interesting. Maybe he'll engage more if he adds mass.

    That's what it is though. His style is on the perimeter. I'd rather that than he be like Shaw and take 3 retaliation penalties a game.

    It's gonna be interesting to observe his physical situation as he goes pro. I think he'll be fine in the modern NHL.

    Looks like neither will be signed. Maybe signed them to AHL deal if they go unclaimed at this year's NHL draft.

    I understand what you are saying, I see similar traits in what you describe. I would say his skating is really good, he can quickly turn and he's got good edge work but his speed is average at best. From what I've seen he's got good puck skills and may actually be a better trigger man than a playmaker. He's got serious upside but he needs to work on his speed/acceleration, lower body strength (which comes hand in hand with maturity and working out).

    Lol how ludicrous is this. It’s like they picked the All-Star teams halfway through the season then Guelph won, so they included them all on the 3rd team at the last minute.

    The combine is a good step in the right direction for that. But yeah I agree, Rockstrom has been living off his reputation for a long time.

    Looks like Walford and Tyszka won't be signed. Sucks.

    I'm particularly lukewarm on the WHL guys these days. Way too many of them seem to fall short of expectations.
