    No problem. I didn't even know they had his rights. That Google machine can find you a lot of things, especially when you know what you're looking for. ;)

    Posts like this are beyond annoying. Some random dude pretending he’s a talent evaluator by comparing a turkey to a tricycle and saying they’re the same.

    Great job at outing yourself and your opinion as completely useless. :clap:

    actually I do think at worst he would be a quicker Chipchura in the sense that if things just don't work out for him and he doesn't progress any then I still think he could be a solid or at least decent 4th liner in the NHL. He's got the speed, skating, smarts, effort, as long as he fills out his frame some, gets stronger, continues to improve his offensive game there's no telling how good he can be.

    It's just so early in his development, his Freshman year is hard to get a read on as there's just not a ton of 17 year olds in the NCAA. That said he took a huge leap forward in his progression, only time will tell what happens next, does that progression continue and if so to what degree or is this it? We'll have to wait and see. No sense getting worked up over others opinions or jabs.

    For some reason, he makes me think of Craig Darby.

    You can see that this kid is determined to succeed.

    I think he has the potential to be a steal!

    I think it would be a step back to play in junior hockey for Ryan Poehling at this point. He increased his production and showed more offensive tools this year than last.. going to junior hockey, against weaker kids, with his frame and size? I don't think that would progress his offensive game at all, it may actually stagnate it.

    Stay in the NCAA for another season, then go to the AHL the following season to see if the offensive tools can elevate against the next level.

    Agreed. He's playing against older, stronger players in a very good league. No reason to send him away to play against 17 year olds in a league where the hockey is probably worse. Would anyone even consider sending Gaudreau to the WHL for example?

    Sure, he looks determined now, but just wait until the Habs coaching and development people get a hold of him and destroy his confidence by punishing him every time he makes a small mistake.

    They won't, they'll give hime every chance he has to succeed.

    One thing that is nice with a regime that is on the edge of imploding is that they'll try to save face really hard, which means they'll probably fall in line, happens all the time.

    Agreed. The track record for seeing prospects regress is alarming

    The CHL would be a terrible idea for Poehling.

    Sure, just like with nothing at all to lose and the Titanic sinking they finally threw Galchenyuk in at centre. The stubbornness of the regime.

    There's a difference, this one is about not losing face and not admitting youre wrong.

    SCSU players sign pro deals, others contemplating offers or returning

    With the benefit of hindsight, probably Frost. Both have had good D+1 seasons in completely different contexts so it's hard to really compare.

    Poehling. At this point he's much safer. Has size, plays 200 foot game, and performing against men in the NCAA. Sub 6' guys killing it in junior aren't as rare.

    Poehling might not have the offensive stats Frost does but he's big and plays great all round hockey ina . tougher leauge

    I wouldn't be surprised if he had 90+ points in the same league as frost though

    I wonder if the Habs had any influence in LeBlanc, Tinordi and McCarron switching over.

    yes, they had to of had some say I would logically think. No way would they make these moves with at least consulting the team that drafted them I got to think. I seem to recall at least in the case of McCarron that the Habs wanted him to go London and with Leblanc I recall his family badly wanted him to get a good education so it was very surprising at the time that he opted to leave after leading his team in scoring as a Freshman.
