The right of Strubble in the Q belong to Armada... Struble said all options are considered....
Good. I was hoping he'd go to Northeastern next year or Major Junior. Don't like him playing BCHL. It helps that we have a couple of prospects playing on the same team.
With the amount of prospects in the system, it also helps to have some playing together so you can watch a few in one game rather than having to watch 2 or 3 games to get to see them all.
Caufield will also join Gorniak in Wisconsin. Unless he opts to go to Major Junior, where he'd go to Sault Ste. Marie (who hold his rights). If that would be the case, we'd get to watch Caufield with LeGuerrier.
Devp camp is coming... Who will be there
HF Habs: - 2019 Montreal Canadiens Development Camp (June 26-28)
And we already have 9 picks for next year.....guaranteed we add more too......insane!!
they will have to trade picks or prospects at some point as we are already at the most prospects I think I've ever seen us have, granted not all will be signed especially if '19 turns into a weak draft year but you run the risk of creating problems with the 50 contract limit and space for them to play in Laval if you have too many turning pro at the same time.
I think I read somewhere that Ruscheinski plans on playing BCHL next year.
Other than having to watch Caufield and Gorniak with the same team in Wisconsin. We have the potential to watch Struble with Harris at Northeastern (pending where Struble decides to play next year). And we will also watch RPH and Houde with the same team in Chicoutimi.
I read one of Grant McCagg's tweets saying he will play for Salmon Arm Silverbacks in the BCHL. Athough Elite Prospects doesn't have him listed anywhere for next year. Nothing is listed on the player's profile or Salmon Arm's roster for the 2019-20 season.
TT says it at the 10-ish minutes mark here, he's going to the BCHL next year.
It's been confirmed that he will play for Salmon Arms in the BCHL next season then go to college, which college is unknown.
Struble probably will go straight to NCAA, but we'll see. Nothing has been confirmed on that front.
I'm wondering. Does anybody here know if our LHD all plays LHD or if some of them also play on their right side? This could be a useful information.
I think we are more interested in which of out RD's might be able to play LD.......
I mean in the future. Our prospects. We now have tons of LHD Mete-Romanov-Harris-Leskinen-Struble-Norlinder-Fairbrother-Leguerrier.
I see, I guess we will have to cross that bridge when we have 3 of them that have actually made it far enough to raise this question. There is no way of knowing that when they are playing at lower levels.
Romanov and Harris both played a solid part of their year on their offside this year afaik
At the NHL level obviously, but if they play on their off side in the junior or in euro leagues its already a bit telling.
Thanks yoshidas for the info!
Totally different game at the NHL level. In order to be effective on the off hand a defender has to be able to process the game exceptionally fast and must be mobile as well as having strong puck protection skills. At the junior level it doesn't matter that much because there is so much time and space.
Forecheckers are on defenders for loose pucks so fast that there isn't much time to transfer from backhand to forehand so it is imperative to get there faster and protect the puck upon gaining possession.
Seeing how well Jérémy Davies developed in Northeastern, you have to hope Struble joins Harris there this year.
What do you think about NUs program ?
really like their coach and the program has been on the rise for the past few years to where they are now among the best in Hockey East but we'll see how this year goes as losing Primeau could really sting, what a find he was for them and us. I don't know how good he'll be but I just can't stress enough how shocked and impressed I was with him over his 2 years. Harris really impressed the heck out of me too so there seems to be a trend. Good NCAA coach/program + Timmins goalie/defensemen picks, hopefully equals big win.
Plus it's cool that NU streams all their home games for free when they could easily charge for them.

The Habs chose 19 prospects ranked in Recrutes' top 90 in the past 3 drafts, easily the most by any team. For some perspective...in the previous seven drafts, they had 19 top 90 picks in total. You will see the effect on the AHL team soon. Laval will be stronger this season.
