I'd say these guys are locks to make the team and I don't think many if any 1993s will make the NHL.


Gaudreau------Galchenyuk------Noesen
X----------Grimaldi------------Biggs
X----------X------------Matteau
X-----------X-----------X


S. Jones--Trouba
C. Murphy----Skjei
X----------X



Gibson

Galchenyuk has an outside chance of making an NHL roster, but I doubt it. Conor Murphy should make the team if he's healthy.

Gaudreau was a late cut from last year, so I'm venturing that he makes it, especially as one of the few exceptionally skilled players of this group. Ditto Grimaldi if healthy.


Maybe some will disagree with a few of these guys, but it's just my opinion.

I wouldn't call Biggs, Matteau, or Skjei locks. All will certainly be in the running for the team but I can't see how any of them are locks. I agree with the rest of your choice but add that J.T. Miller is most certainly a lock and a guy like Vince Trocheck should be more of a lock than a Biggs or Matteau as well.

JT Miller was simply an omission by way of memory fault. He's certainly as much a lock as anybody on the team.

I figured Skjei and Matteau would be debatable but I think they make this team. Maybe I will be wrong about it, I often have been, but we'll see. Biggs I feel even stronger makes the team but again, who knows. Certainly removing those three games you get guys that approach the 99% range (not counting health factors) whereas these three might be in the 70-80 range. In my estimation of course, reasonable minds can and will differ.

AmericanDream 06-20-2012 11:30 PM

from a bit back, but we had some good interesting talks going on in this thread...might want to merge

AmericanDream 06-20-2012 11:32 PM

I am about 99% sure that we wont see Galchenyuk on team USA if either Montreal or the Islanders draft him.... the kid is going to be playing with the big boys in the NHL imo....:cry:

Maybe the Islanders, but only because they are dumb enough to force their best prospects into situations where they are destroyed.

Ex. Josh Bailey and Nino Niederreiter.

Galchenyuk should play another year in Sarnia.

Xokkeu 06-22-2012 09:42 PM

Henrik Samuelsson going in the first round tonight. Will be interesting to see if he can make the roster.

Derp Kassian 07-15-2012 03:28 AM

Hope Labate rips it up early in the college season and gets a shot.

BDizzlez 08-02-2012 12:04 PM

camp starts up this saturday i believe. any new developments?

Takashi 08-03-2012 01:53 PM

Galchenyuk would probably play another year with starnia :nod:

dan1el 08-08-2012 12:44 PM

Locks, IMO, are Gaudreau, Noesen, Jones, Trouba, Murphy and Grimaldi, and obviously Galchenyuk if he's not with the Habs.

keeping my fingers extra crossed if possible!

I think he gets 9 games with Montreal just to see what he can do, hopefully the speed is a bit much for him and Montreal figured him dominating a full year in the OHL will do him better then struggling at times in the NHL

Xokkeu 08-25-2012 04:52 PM

I think it would be a big mistake for Montreal to keep Galchenyuk up this year. Maybe if he had played the entire year last year, but after such a long layoff, not a fan.


Anyway, here's Chris Peters' prediction after the Evaluation camp.


Quote:

Gaudreau Galchenyuk Miller
Lucia Kuraly Noesen
Kerdiles Trocheck Biggs
Pietila Fogarty Hartman
Matteau
On the bubble: Bardreau, Boyd

Reilly Jones
Gostisbehere Trouba

Gibson
Sparks

we can pretty much scratch of Lucia now...looks like he will be lost for at least 4 months after destroying his knee sadly..

Xokkeu 09-07-2012 04:54 PM

I believe it was his ankle but yeah.

Could be interesting what happens if the lockout ends around December.

flyers28giroux 10-03-2012 09:05 PM

Any chance Brady Vail makes the team?

Odds are stacked against him, although if he continues his strong play he might get an invite to the final December eval camp and then anything is possible.

I mean the kid is good. I actually really like him. I just don't think this will be his year.
