    I was wondering if anybody could give me info on this prospect. I know he's playing in the AHL, but I'd like any infos on his progression and attitude. Thanks!
     
  2. Used to be really hyped... Avalanche didn't give him an offer... He's just going to have to prove himself to be a decent player in the AHL... He's tiny as hell though

    I don't agree with 'wear down over the season'. When he was in Quebec, he played his best hockey in the playoffs. He was second in points in the Q playoffs last season.

    Very very good leader. One of the best I've come across in the Q. I'm sure Remparts fans will agree with me there.

    I loved him when he played for the Remparts, but he has the dreaded combination that kills NHL hopes: very small and not fast enough to compensate.

    Im fairly certain they traded him to Moncton because he was becoming a distraction and somewhat of a problem...

    Heard a rumor he was kicked out of private school too, is that true?

    Never heard of that - could be though. He was a great leader in Moncton.

    He's played well in the AHL but I dont think there's much NHL upside to him.

    It's no secret it wasn't working between him and Danick Paquette but what I understood from Roy's comments is that he was taking Tessier's side. That's why I don't think his trade has anything to do with his attitude.

    I'd have attitude problems too if I was born with the name Kelsey.

    lol

    But wasn't this guy signed by the Rangers before the season?

    I believe it was to an AHL only deal.

    Pre-draft I heard comparisons to Chris Drury
