    Glad he's not playing there. BCHL is probably for me one of the least fun leagues to watch.

    yes it's a business but it's not a huge money making machine compared to NCAA football and basketball. Academics are a big part of it, look at Pitlick, he has to play in the USHL or another lesser league because he has not graduated high school yet. There are various factors that go into this but clearly you don't know a lot about this.

    It's been a while since Subban.

    But Brook and Romanov are looking good.

    I think we're all a little pre-maturely high on Strubble because of Romanov and Brook. Let's see how he does in his first year in the ncaa for starters.

    Remember Thrower, Carle, and - holly smokes, those 5 (Subban, Romanov, Brook, Thrower, and Carle) are the only other dmen Timmins has drafted in the second round. Brook (2017) was the first since Thrower back in 2012, who was the first since Subban in 2007.

    I think Timmins should strongly stick to dmen in the 2nd round. If Brook and Romanov pan out, he's batting .600 (60%) before Struble.

    He may just be our best prospect when looking at his skating and physical strenght.

    I think he has the highest upside.

    The problem is you don't know how a kid is going to adjust when they start facing a much higher level of competition. He might crush it or not, it's just so hard to project. Look at Harris, what he did is certainly on the rare side as you just don't see that many kids that just turned 18 in the summer and then go on and play on a top pairing for a top team in the NCAA and then to do it all while undersized and on his off-side.

    While Harris didn't play in the same league, he and Struble both played in very similar leagues that overall the leagues combined are known as the Northeastern Prep so they are playing teams that each has faced meaning Struble's team played some teams this year that played against Harris's former team. And it's one of the strongest leagues in the USHS system.

    That said it's hard to see Struble coming in and actually doing better then Harris, yet he should since he's got the physical size and strength that Harris doesn't and he may not have to play on his off side depending on what they opt to do with their roster since they have a lot of options.

    On the other hand even though Struble just turned 18 a few days ago, it wouldn't shock me if he is our best (or close) prospect in a year or two especially if Caufield is in the NHL in a year or two along with Brook, Suzuki and Poehling.

    Is Struble expected to be available day 1 of NCAA season from his injury?
