Jacob De La Rose wants to play for Windsor

Pretty interesting read. It's up to Leksand if they want to release him so he can play in the OHL.

Not really a rumor if he is quoted directly as saying he wants to play for Windsor.

EDIT: I see OP title was modified, nevermind.

They wont let him... like Nygren (not sure if it was him i think so) last season... i wouldn't be bother by that. the sel league is great at developing swedes.. I'm not gonna be dissapointed anyway it goes.

I would love it if De La Rose and McCarron would both play in the OHL next year. With Crisp also in the OHL, that'd be 3 prospects I'd be able to go out to see. I can't remember the last time the Habs had 3 OHL prospects. I doubt De La Rose gets his release though.

Hannibal 07-10-2013 11:34 AM

That would be AWESOME!!

Agnostic 07-10-2013 11:39 AM

Funny, I could have sworn that I read last week that De La Rose had a clause in his contract that covered this exact situation (being drafted by an NHL team) and that his release and coming to NA was a certainty. Must have dreamed that.

That was Andrighetto.

I remember them saying on TSN had DLR been selected in the 1st round he could go to Windsor. That was the out in his contract.

I think euro prospects have to be drafted in the 1st round in order to have that out clause come into effect.

Regardless it sounds like these SEL clubs want cash in order to release these guys from their contracts...good thing the Habs have plenty of that.

Yes they are, but they should really let him do what he wants to do. He's just a kid and I doubt their success really hinges on his production.

Clearly he really wants to go because he's probably giving up his chance to play in the WJC by going to the CHL.

Redux91 07-10-2013 11:58 AM

REALLY wanted Mccarron to go to London but im pretty indifferent where DLR goes, the swedish league is just fine for swedes to develop, id much rather that than NCAA

if he does somehow go to windsor, will be interresting to see his offensive stats as i dont expect much offense from him in the SEL

just his agressivity and his non stop skating alone should pot him a couple goals in the OHL

OHL may help JDL more in developping his offense, playing with older guys the next 2 years he'll mostly get used in 3rd line and defensive situations.

Crimson Skorpion 07-10-2013 12:06 PM

Well, if McCarron is going to London and DLR is going to Windsor... goodbye social life. Going to be watching A LOT of OHL this upcoming season.

MonkeyBusiness 07-10-2013 12:07 PM

Really hope he goes to Windsor, he won't be counted on much in Leksands. Probably going to be on the 4th or 3rd line. Going to Windsor will help him develop his offensive game.

Whitesnake 07-10-2013 12:12 PM

The idea is....what is Leksand's roster look like? Any Swedish experts around here like KRM or anybody else? Do they envision De La Rose to have a key spot? Does he even have a chance at a real roster starting job? Or on the contrary, Leksand is so weak that he'd even have a shot at a top 6 despite his age?

hogtownhabsfan* 07-10-2013 12:50 PM

I could very well see JDLR outperforming McCarron if both are in the OHL. He's just much further along in his development.

S Bah 07-10-2013 12:52 PM

Jacob has expressed his desire to play in Windsor, that would give him time to get used to the NA rinks (size) and the speed of the game in those arenas. Also in Leksand he was only playing 5 on 5 on the 4th line, about 5 mins. a game. Even so he managed to score 6g + 6a = 12 pts.

In Windsor he will have increased icetime and a chance to use his offensive game, as well he gets the opportunity to play the OHL schedule and playoffs. Playing that many games will be more like the schedules that pro's in NA play. So it's in the hands of his agent and the Habs to make arrangements that would allow him to be released from his Leksand commitments.

Hopefully Jacob gets to play here in NA and expand his knowledge of our game, the physical type of game he excels in.:handclap:

Pax Macioretty 07-10-2013 12:59 PM

It's a personal opinion of course, but I think it's even more inportant for De La Rose to play in Windsor than it is for McCarron to play in London. The difference between Landeskog and Paajjarvi for me is that one had space and opportunity to develop his offense while the other was always looking to survive and avoid costly mistakes. It could make the difference between making him a future 1st or 3rd liner IMO.

My only concern is...how many Swedes have gone the CHL route and become successful NHLers? Landeskog is one...who else? Mikael Backlund?

One thing seems sure, Leksand has nothing to gain by letting him go (unless the Habs pony up some cash). So I don't see it happening.

Different teams involved, so it doesn't mean the same outcome although it's my understanding that these matters almost always come down to money. If Windsor pays up, I'm willing to bet he'll be in the OHL next year. If not, his contract in Sweden ends after next season so he can come over to the OHL for the 2014-2015 season.

From what I read, he would be expected to be a regular on the 4th line with Leksand next season.

Which is a tough call. I mean, not for us as we'd prefer to see him top 6 in the CHL. But already seen as a regular, even if it's on the 4th...seems to me he won't be sold that easily....

Edler - played one season in the WHL, with Kelowna (2005-06)
Oduya - played one season in the QMJHL,with Victoriaville and Moncton (2000-01)
Landeskog - played two seasons in the OHL, with Kitchener (2009-10, 2010-11)
Backlund - played part of a season in the OHL, with Kelowna (2008-09)
Urbom - played one season in the WHL, with Brandon (2009-10)

Point proven though. Those are the only five that have played in the CHL out of 50 Swedes who currently play in the NHL. Two or three had some experience in the States high school/college systems but the rest either played in the SEL or Sweden-1 leagues.

Pretty sure the organization will have to pony up some serious cash to pry him out of Leksand.

I don't think it would take all that much since it's the final year of his contract, but Windsor may not want to after getting in so much trouble with money and draft picks when they can wait a year and get him for free. :sarcasm:

For the capologists, does this pay-off count against the cap?
