    I have heard that it's official, Brock Bradford will attend BC next year and will get to join his buddy Dan Bertram. BC is going to be fun to watch with Bertram, Bradford and Corey Schnider. Havent' seen any official links yet, but I read about it over at ushco.com's board. I had heard a few weeks ago that it was going to be BC so Bradford could play with Bertram, so it makes sense.

    I've seen Bradford play several times. Super talented.. but very small and it's easy to notice how small he is too (isn't really a battler either).

    Think Tim Connolly.

    Saw him play a few weeks ago. He is extremely talented, but I thought he pretty strong on his feet for a small guy. He'll need that to succeed at the next level.

    I finally got to see him in Green Bay this year and he was the best player offensively in the USHL IMO since Thomas Vanek was in the USHL.

    I have to say though he needs to hit the gym!

    I think he's very underrated. Don't you Shark?

    I don't know if he is overall underated because his game at the moment won't work in the NHL Unless he adds considerable amount of muscle and learn to play some defense. But you can't teach his speed and hands, along with his Vision.

    I have him going mid 2nd round, I'm a fan of the USHL and gave him an extra boost because of his play in the USHL, I have him at 40.


    Speaking of underated Leaf: I'm seeing Robbie Earl tonight live along with one of my favorite Sharks 7th round picks of all time in Joe Pavelski, and 2nd round pick Matt Carle....

    I can get back to you on Earls performance at both ends if you like?

    That would be greatly appreciated, even though we have Oiler Chick reporting on tonights performance, two POV's would be very welcome. Especially from two very knowledgable people.

    :)

    Let us know how he does over the our forum.

    How does Bradford compare to Bertram? I've never seen Bradford but I've been impressed with what I've seen of Bertram at BC this year. Bertram has to be a first round pick, top 20 I would think if size doesn't hold him back. He just scored a wicked goal against Parise as BC is taking it to North Dakota.

    Parise plays in the AHL. Unless you're thinking of his Dad, J.P. Parise. Does he coach the Sioux?

    No, his brother is Jordan, North Dakota's goalie.
