    Surprised Streek didn't want to report to Portland, but perhaps Saskatoon can offer him a better chance to play as a 16 year old compared to fighting for a roster spot in Portland. I'm dissapointed we lost one of our more promising forward prospects but hopefully the trade is roughly equal value as it is seen as a deep draft.

    Interesting development that Alan Caldwell has pointed out, with regards to Everett and this draft

    I said he’s an enigma, didn’t say he’s not skilled.

    They probably didn't have a spot for him? Having said that, Portland signed a lot of D over the last few months and not many Forwards. Looking over their prospects page now to see whats there as far as forwards are concerned. What is happening with Pasternak?

    We are only losing 2 roster forwards in Gricius and Gillis while having signed prospects Litke, Pasternak, Chyzowski and Bevington all coming in to compete for spots and probably ahead of Streek so there was no guarantee he would make the team. That being said it's still dissapointing to see him not fight for the spot and instead request a trade. For Pasternak, he has played south of the border for a while even though hes from Manitoba but I expect him to come to camp and fight for a spot as he put up some respectable numbers in a part time USHL campaign with Chicago.

    You had 3 out of the first 31 correct. Is this your first time?

    I actually like Streek more than Chyzowski from the little I have seen. Having said that, we have 4 signed forwards vouching for 2 spots? What about the other forward prospects from 2019/18 draft I see on the PW prospect page? Any of them signed or signing? HAVE you heard anything about Schelter?
    Any chances of the new 2020 draftees signing right away?

    I havent seen either play, but Chyzowski was drafted higher and reading MJ's comments from the draft last year and training camp he seems very high on him, and plays center which the team has graduated 2 of. 2 spots from the overagers graduating, more could open up if they trade away someone like Stefan for example (which I think is unlikely cause he is best friends with O'Brien). There are other forward prospects in the system but aren't signed yet and may or may not commit to the team so it is hard to pencil them in. I haven't heard anything on Schelter but as a bigger body would be a welcome addition to a mostly smaller group. Traditionally Portland doesn't sign guys until they have seen them in training camp so I expect there to be a wait.

    I like Schelter's size that's why I asked (since some big guys are leaving.)
    Snuggerud 6'2" and Fedele 6'3" are two really big F prospects that I don't know much about. Wonder if there even will be a training camp in Aug and if there is, will the Canadians be able to cross the border?

    Snuggerud is signed to the US NTDP so he is most likely not showing up, unless he decides to play junior after the 2 years instead of college. Fedele I have not heard anything about. Training camp will happen, just a matter of when its safe to do so, everything is up in the air right now.

    Love seeing only after a week since the draft, 13 of the 1st round picks have signed already. The top 7 picks have and 6 others. Love it!

    Looks like Seattle signed their 2nd round pick Dube too

    Any thoughts on the Blazers 2 1st round picks Kaden Hammell, and Grayden Slipec?

    Slipec could be the steal of the draft at 27, as Dubnetwork scouting had him at 7 overall and Draftgeek had him at 6. Hammel also seems like a great value being ranked 9th by Dubnetwork and 15th by draftgeek. Good balance in building with a forward and dman.

    First player from the US draft to sign, from a team that played at the US Challenge Cup and going to a team that doesn't generally carry too many americans, looks like a positive sign to me!

    Kaden Hammell signed today with the Blazers. Really hope they are able to sign Slipec.
