Just wanted to know if there is anyone who could post the stats of our prospects and suspects in Albany, Junior A, College, and Europe at least once a week?

It is a major job and would take someone who has a lot of time to do searches, etc. I think Unthinkable and Jason MacIsaac are the best candidates for the job. Maybe someone should ask Jared or Elias26 or PEli, just to make it official. I think it would be cool to see how some of the guys in our system are doing each week or so. I would love to see if Teemu Laine is making any noise in Finland. Same with Andrei Posnov in Russia. I know PEli will be seeing Petr Vrana play a lot, so I'm sure we will get frequent reports from him on Vrana's progess. Does anyone else live near a team with one of our prospects on it?

BTW, did Ken Sutton sign with a German team? And does anyone know if Bicek and Berglund would have to pass through waivers if they are sent down to Albany? I believe Bicek needs to pass through waivers, as does Mike Rupp. Not sure about Berglund. :dunno:

Also, after watching some video from last season's playoffs, I realize how important that line of Brylin, Rheaume, and Stevenson was. They worked their butts off and could change the momentum of a game. Rupp or Rasmussen will have to take Rheaume's spot. Brylin and Stevenson are just so darn injury-prone, but when they are healthy, they are vital to the success of this team. If we trade them, we have to get younger, healthier, and cheaper players who work just as hard and have almost as much skill, or more, if possible!

Yes, Sutton signed in Germany. The name of the team is listed on Teemu 08's Free Agent sticky in the Trades forum.

Glad to see someone else recognize the role played by Rheaume, with Brylin and Stevenson, in the playoffs. Would have rather seen Rheaume over Rasmussen. Oh well, gotta move on.

I second Unthinkable or Jason posting weekly prospect stats.

Just an idea, on the Flames board they have made a "Prospect Stats" thread, that has been stickied. Maybe we could do that here, and then anyone at anytime can post prospect stat updates.

One more thing guys, look for a bi-weekly AHL report on the Rats progress during the season. I have found someone that is going to do this for me. The season preview article will be up soon.....
