Titan coming draft.
 
In an Acadie Nouvelle article this morning, we can read more news from Sylvain Couturier:

1- The new owners will require players to be proud of wearing the Titan jersey....and who will work their ass off every shift; no more half assed effort like Sly admitted was too often the case last season.
He wants to replicate the 2005-2006 Titan team which had a combination of skills and blue collars making the opponents' life miserable at the KCI.
Players will have to put on their working boots every shift.
2- Lafontaine is exactly the type of player who personifies the team work Sly is looking for and will be the C again next season.
3- Couturier is NOT predicting a top team but instead a midpack team who will compete hard against the bests.
4-The Titan MIGHT be tempted to reade ONE of their first round picks for a 2nd rounder PLUS an impact player as their offense will be thin. Teams like Moncton/Halifax/Quebec/BLB/RN/Victo, who are without a first round pick, might knock at the door.
5- Zboril will join his brother who was drafted in the USHL.
6- The Titan will keep 2 OA Ds plus Gingras/Gosselin/Dumontier and will bring in Gabriel Labbe from the Montreal-Laval Royals
7- The NB choices will be the blue collar type as they do not have star players coming in this draft.
8- The Titan will not draft an extra goaltender as they are filled at that position.

This to me indicates pretty well that the new ownership is settling in already and putting its foot print as to what kind of amangement they want in place.

Hmm... I'd prefer to see the Titan go for a rebuild, but one of those first round picks would be nice to have in Halifax. Ryan would be a good guy to target, he fits the bill of the type of player the Titan want to make life in their building miserable for their opponent, but I'm not sure the moose would want to give him up.

Without downplaying Andrew Ryan, he is not enough of an impact player to be worth a top first round pick....nothing against him coming our way though.

Maybe. I don't think the trade would work from either team, really, because the Moose would need a roster player to replace him.

Who would you target from the teams you've mentioned?

IHaveNoCreativity 05-23-2013 02:54 PM

Why not bring Zboril's brother to Bathrust ?

The one I would like the Titan to add would be William Carrier....but he is not on this list of teams.

Don't think Adam was happy in Bathurst, evident by him leaving for a tournament during the playoffs where you could tell it was over with the Titan.

Can they get better Euros ?

your overvaluing that 1st round pick. Your not going to get a stud forward + a 2nd round pick, in return for a mid 1st round pick. I hope you do......but i really doubt you get an established offensively gifted player + a 2nd round pick, and all the other team gets is to move up 8-10 spots in the draft, + they lose a star player.

The Titan only have a 2nd round Euro pick for next draft and they already have a good Euro in Zdrahal....I expect good things from him this season.

However nothing stops them from trading for a 2nd Euro.

I think you misread me here!

I know that a 5th overall or an 8th overall pick will not get us Carrier plus a 2nd round pick.

I was simply expressing my wish.

Carrier will be highly coveted at the draft as he expressed the wish to be traded at the end of last season.

Justin Hache.....William Carrier......wow.....you're just loading up on Eagles.

Stop. Just........stop.

Clem, again I believe that you are misreading.....please review your stance....

If you want to make fun, you are missing the boat.;)

Yes......you dedicated him his own thread.

You may as well take Kyle Farrell too. Nicholas Blanchard won a NSMAA scoring title, and you have him penciled in as a top 6 forward by Christmas. Farrell has two of those trophies. What's higher than the 1st line?

Firstly last Christmas trade period is long gone for Hache!

We are talking now....

Secondly I said Blanchard "could" be on the top-6 by Christmas....different beast altogether.

Right now he's got everything to prove and the Titan need offense from the start of the season....they are seriously missing.

April 17th, 2013.....last month.....on your titans proboards.....a "Justin Hache" thread.

Are you one of those kids who needs to wear a hockey helmet everywhere you go?

Looking at the same topic, you will see that I inserted Blanchard on the 3rd line.....not top-6.

But you are right, we could not go after Carrier and Hache at the same time without giving away our top picks.

I don't think the Titan would trade for both players.

Hache would love to play in Bathurst and Carrier wants out....it will be interesting to see what happens at the draft.

chsb 05-30-2013 11:58 AM

It looks like Brouillard will be moved at the draft as he does not want to come back to the Titan....something that was expected for a while.
The rumour is that he will be traded to Gatineau.

chsb 06-04-2013 03:56 PM

Another rumour around here is that the Titan will try to improve their team at the draft and the Brouillard deal will be instrumental to it.

:amazed: ;)

Joking aside, I wonder what the plans of the new management is. With 5/6th of the top 6 gone from last year, Do they trade Brouillard and try to build around 96 and 97's?

That is what we will see at the draft.

Nobody said that they would improve over last season, but they will improve from their present state.

What would A-C be wanting in return for Brouillard? (Personally I wouldn't mind him coming to Baie-Comeau, :P )

welcometothebigshow2 06-06-2013 05:47 AM

If I were Couturier, I'd sell, sell, sell this draft. I'd build my team around this draft class, and get rid of everyone you can for picks. Brouillard, Brennan, Godin, Girard, etc. this draft is a big one for the Titan, and they better not mess it up.
