Thanks for the recommendation, sounds like a great resource
I got my draft order from WHL website. Also I sent my mockdraft into DubNetwork and he didn't mention anything about my order. Also we haven't seen Heidt play without Yager. Also I'll trust what you've heard I am not an insider or anything I am 16 years old and just study statistics and watch their games and highlights. I have talked to a few players in the draft as well. Also my reasoning for Kamloops taking Reay is because I believe Ernst and Reay could be a better duo then Ramsay and Garand are. I also think taking Reay opens up a trade option for Garand or Ramsay where they could possibly get a pick in next years draft in return.
I honestly believe Dube will go 13 but I have watched him in person so much this season and I don't believe he deserves to go there. He is a 1-Way player that has a lot of bad habits, lots of talent yes but his attitude hasn't seemed to be the greatest.
Yeah I believe you could be right I just see the opportunity in taking Reay.(Who I believe will be an unreal goalie) As it will open up a trade option for Garand or Ramsey, they could possibly get a prospect and a pick for either of them.
Those bad habits accompany many of the high end bantams who play a somewhat selfish game because they are so much better than the other players. That attitude changes quickly when they get into the WHL. If the talent is there it is up to the coaches to harness it and mold into a team game. Who do you think the WK should pick at #13?
$100 they take a defenceman
lol that's bizarre reasoning. Kamloops is just starting their next few years of being a really good team, if anyone gets traded its Ramsay who is not a starter at this level.
Garand along with Wolf will be the top 2 goalies in the WHL.
That is a true statement but I think in the top 15 picks you should be trying to get as many WHL ready players as possible. I still stand by my mock draft in the fact Brandon should take Oliver Tulk, he plays a solid team game and is still able to work through his small stature.
I believe Reay will be the best goalie in the WHL when he is 17/18. Even if you just trade away Ramsay you open up a spot and there is lots of teams that would be in the market for a WHL ready backup who has the ability to win games when called upon. In reality when you go to your backup goalie you need to have the confidence that you can still comfortably play your game, I think that will create a lot of upside to teams who would be in the market for Ramsay
I agree assuming one of the top 6 d-men is still available at their pick. They can get a top forward with their second round pick. Defence is a very difficult position to play in today's game so drafting one of the top end ones early makes a lot of sense.
who do you consider to be the top 6 defenceman?
I’d be surprised if Reay is one of the first five goalies taken.
Check any of the many mock drafts and you will see who the top 6 appear to be.
They’re wrong, Wheaties will draft someone no one really knows and he’ll turn out to be an NHL player.
That may very well be as they do have arguably one of the best scouting staffs.
Way better than anything WEHP puts out and cheaper
I would like you to look more into Reay, we are 2 days from the draft and I am extremely confident in my selections.
Hey he’s not a bad goalie, good eye. There’s a few who project better right now but you never know with goalies.
The WHL Unfiltered podcast did a draft preview
They floated the idea of Saskatoon potentially looking to move up to 2 or 3 to select a homegrown prospect for hockey and marketing purposes. I think PG and Moose Jaw hold onto the picks but who knows until the draft starts Wednesday morning
I expect Brandon to try and get Brayden Dube in the 1st if they can. He should be there that might even be a bit high for him.
I would think they would like to draft one of the top,6 defenceman from this draft but they could all be gone by time their pick comes up,, so Dube would make sense. Hey Joe the WHL fans website is up and running again.
Zero chance they take Dube.
And how do you know this for sure? Who are they taking then?
Doesn’t make sense for them, he’s an enigma.
An enigma that scored 74 goals this year??? Yep.
