    The Skills competition is of course the night before on the 18th.

    THIS GAME is always intriguing because the kids hit trying to impress scouts-it is not like a fiesse all-star game..

    Of course it is only ONE GAME and the old saw that a stinker game won't necessarily hurt a kid's draft rankings,BUT a game where a kid "shines" could influence scouts to upgrade hion their charts probably holds true... Remember PAT KANE's TOP PROSPECTS GAME?He was mr. iniviible that night deite tearing up the OHL that year..so a stinker TP game doesn't necessarily drop anyone i the rankings.
    NOw this year's TP game is particularly fascinating for lots of comparison "looks"
    to substantiate or change certain evaluation rankings if certain players shine:


    RNH vs. RYAN STROME (the battle of the Ryans at centre)...

    MCNEILL vs, RNH (is there really that big of a "gap" favouring RNH?)

    SIEMENS vs. HAMILTON (the battle of the big D-men)
    PRINCE vs. RATTIE and BARTSCHI --who shines among the "smaller skilled wingers?)

    CHRIS GIBSON in nets (is he really that good? OR will a "shiner" game move him up to #1 Na goalie past the not in the game JOHN GIBSON ranked #1 NA goalie by Cenral couting at mid-term?)

    AND then the biggest story ofall: COUTURIER vs, HUBERDEAU --who really is the best Q forward prospect?

    These are very intersesting "looks" t watch for throughout this contest.

    Invariably the star of the game is somebody not so much in the spotlight...COLIN JACOBS? REECE SCARLETT? LUCAS LESSIO? XAVIER OULLETE? SCOTT HARRINGTON?PHILIP DANAULT? MARK SCHIEFELE? TOMAS JURCO? One of the other goalies (HONZIK,BINNINGTON,LISTON)? This surprise factor usually happens..

    So again-itshould be a fascinating contest.

    Hey thanks for the heads up - I assume it will be on TSN, no?

    The draft is certainly shaping up to be a heated race. Makes this game all the more interesting.

    Is Landeskog playing? You didn't mention him...

    EDIT: Nevermind - still injured: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=549291

    Have tickets to this. Really looking forward to seeing how Ryan Murphy will look amongst his own draft class.

    I think Siemans will end up being the best defensman from this draft and that includes Larsson
     
  9. I'm assuming Ryan Murphy will take part in this game. I've seen his stats but never got the chance to see him play and with us having a lottery pick in this years draft who knows, we might draft the kid if Larsson's off the board.

    This is always a fun game to watch. I may see if I can swing over to the game since I haven't been since Kitchener in 2003 (the Phaneuf coming out party).

    Why the need for the brutal censorship in this thread?

    I won tickets to the game (along with the skills competition) through the official OHL twitter. Pretty pumped, haven't gone since it was hosted in London back in 03 or 04.

    Is the skills comp. televised? Based on that linked page I don't think so but if anyone knows for sure, that'd be great?
