    Really like the Wolves chances with Ukko, who is 4-0 with a .960 and 1.00 against North Bay this year!

    Without Ukko North Bay are 2-0 and have outscored us 10-5 lol.

    Cant disagree , as both GM/Coach he answers to no one , as coach he protects his bad draft picks (as GM) , as GM he wont fire himself , what is worse we have a owner who either doesn't care or knows nothing about hockey so it just continues .

    So to be clear , you believe he will sign with a NHL team , if he doesn't he will go to Europe .
    Are you also saying that if he doesn't sign with a NHL team , he will walk away from his school money to play in Europe ?

    Much like you living at home in your parent's basement. Sorry that was mean but you left yourself open for it.
    I believe Prophet was being coy with his questioning because:
    A- Brazzeau is not getting a NHL contract
    B- He would be crazy to flush $100,000.00 worth of free education to go play in Europe or even the ECHL
    As a top 5 scorer in the league he is getting plenty of Usport offers; pick the right school, get an education, have some fun extracurricular activities and continue playing hockey.
    Sets himself up perfectly; gets a start on post hockey career path, has a good time and plays hockey with a pro offer window still open.

    Took the bait hook
    Took the bait hook , line and sinker ! Now sonny boy , make sure you have facts or examples to back up your comments going forward , don't base your post on emotion or team spirit . If you cruise other team threads you will find very good hockey people (NOT JUST FANS) giving out some real good info and as a poster you need to at least have some idea of the business side of the game or you leave yourself open to guys like me. Over & Out

    Truly have no clue what you’re talking about. Brazeaus stats speaks for them selves.

    Nice article and very informative.

    Personally I'll be surprised to see any Battalion skater selected this season at the NHL draft. Struthers really hasn't opened my eyes this season like I expected him to. There's really a question as to whether that offense in his game is there next season when he won't have Justin Brazeau driving the play. And I'm not sure his two-way play is where you'd like it to be for a player who doesn't really have something in his game that really stands out.

    If anyone is selected, I'd put a wager on Nick King who has done nothing but impress with the opportunity he's been given in North Bay. Otherwise the Battalion will have a handful of players playing for potential UFA spots next season.

    As an aside, in a Q&A with Corey Pronman, he said he's pretty certain Brazeau sees an ELC offer. The size and skill is too good to pass up on despite the fact his skating is terrible. I tend to agree. My money would be on San Jose.

    St Louis is my guess.

    It won't be Toronto. They are building a fast puck possession team, JB17 doesn't suit that style.........at all!!!
