    I just can't imagine an underage non-NTDPer at the summer camp, especially with the depth of the NTDP 2001 class. Also, I'd rather Kaliyev play in the Ivan Hlinka, which usually overlaps with camp.

    He doesn't have any issues with USAH. They offered him a spot on the NTDP team, but he chose the OHL instead. He should be on the Hlinka team after having represented Team USA at last year's Five Nations.

    True, but he seems ready for that challenge. I would love to see him at the Hlinka as well, so we will see how it unfolds.. but the issues I was referring to was the rumors he couldn't prove citizenship at the time of the USNDP camp...again that was the rumor, never followed up on it to its validity.

    I've heard the one rumor from that OHL blogger that he was older than claimed, but not rumors regarding his citizenship. You have to have American citizenship to participate in USAH Player Development Camps, which he did last year (after his NTDP/OHL decision) to play in the Five Nations, so I'd say that rumor is unfounded; otherwise, USAH wouldn't have let him participate in those events if he turned down the NTDP before them due to citizenship issues.

    I heard the one about his age as well, figured that was bs too. I will have to see where I heard all that citizenship stuff from and try and post it here...I never really bought into it either, but when I didn't see his name on your list and then nothing on your notes below about him, was just curious if you were being cautious as well. If he dominates next year out the gate, he has to be there in December to at least show what he can do.

    The one thing that I will say is that the 01' class is going to really push some of the players from the 00' group here. I have come away beyond impressed with Caufield and Turcotte. Both kids should be very high draft picks but potential players for this team as well. Then you can look at kids currently on the u-17 team carrying the load like Boldy, Rolston, Beecher, etc...very talented group of kids overall and what should be another loaded group for the u-18 team next year.

    We have been doing this for a long time, I am not sure I can recall as many back to back to back groups with this much talent overall..hopefully these start translating into Gold medals again!

    By the way, you enjoying the Knights run??? Amazing story there and can't wait to see what happens to youth hockey in the area over the next decade.

    He was not offered a spot on the team. It was a school related issue that kept him from playing on the team. Something to do with his grades.

    Hard to fathom how good this team would have been if they had rostered players like Kaliyev or Mastrosimone.

    From Jeff Cox, one of the writers with the most sources at USAH:

    "[Cade Webber], and Arthur Kaliyev who is OHL bound, are the only two players who declined the NTDP invite"

    I'd rather Janicke or Weiss get an invite to the camp than Gruden. Kaliyev should be on that camp list, although I understand the reasoning. Definitely think Turcotte should be on that team, he's better than Caufield, although both could make the team.

    Webber made the team as 8th man and felt it was better for his development not to sign. Kaliyev made the team but there were schooling issues. NTDP is pretty strict when it comes to school.

    Great list! Thanks for the effort.

    Are we sure the WJSS is in Plymouth again this year? Hope so. If it is, I'm there .

    Well that just sucks. Everything else is Canada. It was nice to have the showcase in the US and close to me.

    I thought Tkachuk was the biggest departure risk but it sounds like he will be back at BU.

    Elliot Friedman reporting on NHL Network that the Rangers are actually very interested in David Quinn as the new head coach for them....that is pretty big news, not only for BU but for the US team at the WJC. If he becomes coach of the Rangers a whole lot of craziness ahead for two teams on scrambling to fill that void...interesting development.

    okay, looks like we have no coach now...wow, David Quinn to the Rangers!!

    Massive loss for BU as well, have to imagine some recruits thinking twice at least until the head coach is announced there..can't recall this ever happening before, not sure who USA Hockey turns to next...Bylsma???

    I am fine with that choice, interesting to see if they add a coach or two later like Byslma to assist or whoever if not employed by the NHL...
