    We need a high end D for our prospect pool since all but Myers/Morin have graduated.

    Time to re-stock!

    Hughes coming back for another year at US Program honestly probably hurts some these guys. Even amongst the top players they can some times get overshadowed (Larkin playing behind Eichel, Trouba playing behind Jones, etc.) but you don’t only have that potentially with Hughes/Turcotte you’re going to have guys on your third/fourth lines that typically would be playing up a line further in most years. Guys like Zegras & Beecher. Rolston’s a late birthday so he’ll move on for his draft year but he’s another talented player in the mix.

    A guy like Kaliyev turned down a spot a year ago when the team was first formed. It’s looking a good call for him as he was the best 16-17 year old in the OHL last year.

    Correct. Also the one where I accuse @Captain Dave Poulin of posting while under the influence of catnip. Addict.

    Hot Take: Jack Hughes #1 overall. Bookit. I am telling you I have read good things about this kid. I think he has what it takes.

    Hughes should go tear up the OHL.

    @wasup No, he should go play in the superior OHL.

    Not against the USHL or NCAA route at all. But for Hughes I don't think it makes sense. Why go back to the USHL for next season? Would make much more sense to just go to the OHL for a year before making the jump to the NHL.
