    I really like this kid. He's been my favourite prospect for a while, he's going to be a very good 2C that does everything well... Can't wait.

    This franchise really hasn't had much to celebrate from ownership to management to coaching to players for 3 years.

    It is a nice accolade and something to cheer. I didn't think raining on it was necessary this morning. I don't think it's necessary at this point in the day either.

    And thanks. I had a very productive day

    Can’t wait.
    Tkachuk, Norris, Brown, Formenton, Batherson, White, Pinto, Abramov and our picks from this draft going to make for a real fun forward group.
    Especially excited to see Norris out there.

    No matter what, San Jose fans must feel something similar to what Sens fans were feeling after the Duchene trade exploded in our face (that's what happens when your competing team suddenly tanks and the 1st round pick you gave up becomes gold). Only a few times worse though.

    Maybe AHL rookie of the year doesn't move the needle much, we didn't need to see that to know that Norris is going to be a very solid NHL player. Just Norris and a top-6 pick is already really great quality, all the other picks (two 2nds + 3rd from DeMelo), Tierney and Balcers are just gravy.

    I really hope EK can stay away from injuries for the rest of his career. This trade is already really worth it for us so we don't need EK to be a salary cap anchor on top of it.

    Both some early comments in this thread, and before Tkachuk was picked, have taught me that if I want a prospect to be good, I just need to accuse them of secretly being Shane Bowers so that it can blow up in my face later on.

    Logan Brown, he's nothing but a Shane Bowers knockoff.

    Norris has become my favorite prospect since the AHL season ended with him scoring and playing as he did. That could change on June 26. :) I really hope so.

    Not quite the young Oilers team of years gone by, but looking good for us.

    And Formenton was gaining on Norris as the season wore on...he must have been up there in the voting as well. His season sort of went under the radar to me given the success of Norris and Batherson.

    Having such a young team have such success is certainly a positive.

    On the same note, I think Brown was relatively sheltered from criticism this year due to those kids stepping up too. He wasn't bad but didn't the expected step IMO.

    Brown had 28 points in the AHL this season while Bowers had 27 points. Same player. :sarcasm:

    I think it's interesting that both Norris and Formenton had slow starts

    I think the Formenton/Norris success was also able to steal some spotlight from the best player in the AHL, Drake Batherson. He was unreal and I can only imagine training with Crosby, Mackinnon and Marchand in the summer will only continue to elevate his game.

    I expect Batherson to produce a Top 10 scoring season in the NHL at some point in his career, mark my words.

    So exciting to have a wealth of young talented prospects with more on the way!

    That's one hell of a "hometown-only training group". They all get the top 10 scoring finishes so obviously Batherson is next! :sarcasm:

    They train together because they all live in Halifax. Perhaps they've only been doing home workouts, but if they've begun doing group workouts with anyone it would be with each other.

    Oh likely not but when the players were given the okay to resume training but not use team facilities, I assume they probably rented some ice time in Halifax and put in some skates. Or some type of off ice workouts.

    Regardless, just being around that trio of players for the last 3 summers has had a profound impact on his game which was very noticeable.

    I'll leave it at this, Batherson is the closest thing we have to an Alfredsson in the org (maybe slightly less tenacious at this point).
