    He could be one very good top 6F with scoring touch. I do like him as well. I know his shot is above average, just don't know if it's elite level. This is why I am asking others.

    His shot isn't elite, but everything else is.

    At what number is over-drafted?

    10? Maybe...

    He skates and handles the puck extremely well. He's got Newhook beat when it comes to handling traffic, IMO.

    I bet he goes top 15, and that would be logical.

    He does look like a dynamic offensive forward. His work ethic is top notch which is a bonus. I'd be very OK if we drafted Newhook.

    However, one way or another, we need a goal scoring threat. Not someone who works hard to score, someone who can score because their shot is elite

    The Habs need someone who can create offense on an elite level, Dorofeyev, Kaliyev, Caufield, Brink, McMichael and Newhook are the only guys that are going to be there at 15 that have that potential.

    Dorofeyev, Newhook and Brink have the best offensive potential of these, followed by Kaliyev and Caufield and McMichael not so far away. I think the first group has 80 points in them, then high 60, then high 50.

    > Say a bunch of **** about Broberg
    > Ask questions about Newhook

    I heard a pundit this morning on the radio say that a player like Newhook would be easily appealing to Montreal fans. They compared his motor and drive to Gallagher — shows up every game, always working.

    Why so sensitive? I don't think any poster should be saying another poster has no first hand knowledge of either. Just talk to them and speak your piece.

    Very curious to see who we draft at 15. Does Dorofeyev slip to 46? Looks like their is a chance

    Stapley, Gorniak, Koberstein, Evans, Staum, Sullivan, McDonagh, Stejskaland, Fischer, Walsh, MacMillan, Bennett, Kishel, and Paquet to name a few.

    Timmins usually takes a shot at players from 2nd tier leagues including two last season (Harris, Gorniak)

    My take from Dorofeyev's latest ranking is it's safe to say he's not in teams' top 10 and that's about it.

    McKenzie's lists over the years have generally been heavy on players playing in NA. Suggesting more than likely, scouts he polls are North Americans.
    Understandably, their knowledge of the prospects who play here and/or in international tournaments will be way more comprehensive, than it will for those who don't check either category, like Dorofeyev.

    And explains the absurd 40-spot difference between him and Nikolayev, a russian-based player who's league play pales in comparison to Dorofeyev's but one took part in and had points in the major tournaments.

    I have NO CLUE who will be drafted before us, and I have NO CLUE how the prospects performed in their interviews, so I have NO CLUE who we will pick. BUT, I am super excited to find out who we DO pick.

    He should be within reach, maybe 2-3 picks away. Can’t let him slip when you’re so close like that.

    Go on youtube, type taiwan hockey, you can watch a couple of the last U18 games, I suggest you to watch the gold medal game, Broberg was an absolute beast out there...

    Leblanc was a below average skater, he didn't have the drive to improve on it as well as every other part of his game.

    If they are going to use "2nd tier" as the bar then you also have to include all of the high school picks such as McDonagh, Fischer, Harris, Staum, Gorniak, Sullivan etc. as well.

    I assume he meant in Canada since it was well known about how Timmins went overboard for a while there with the American kids from the USHS.

    Yeah I know, just thought it was silly to exclude players who played against similar competition which posed the same scouting challenges.

    As you know Timmins has never been afraid to scout the fringe.

    Probably. If I was betting for my life that's who I would bet on.
