Assuming Labrie takes 19, the last pick is tough ..... is it between the two Medicine Hat players? The leftover college kids haven't done enough to justify a spot, and I'd take Coyle over Monast, King over Tousignant for long-term potential.

piqued 07-29-2010 10:12 AM

Sacchetti and Winkler are basically dead to me. I included Monast just to be nice. I go back and forth between Coyle and King for that final spot. Undecided at the moment. I gave some consideration to Tousignant, but his slightly better proximity is hurt by the fact that the NHL squad is up to its gills in pests already. Maybe if this were the LA Kings of last year who were just waiting for a player like Clune to come along and fill that role... then again if Ott takes his annual trip to the DL like expected, maybe Tousignant gets a priority call-up ahead of a player with more skill or production in order to replicate the niche, I don't know.

Tous outside chance to get called up trump the chances of anyone else to me. The college guys are likely to not even be signed at this rate. Defenders only considered because our depth is poor. I guess king could suprise but my guess is that Backman is just as if not more talented and if we need a lower line center King ain't it. Backman actually is probably most talented player left IMo. Labrie is too small for a defensive d-man

piqued 07-29-2010 11:13 AM

I didn't include Backman because he's the same age as Gagnon.

There's still a couple others out there, such as Gazdic or Micheal Neal.

I think Crawford had a good quote on Gazdic in last year's training camp?

I wouldn't vote for either one, but if people were wanted to know who else was out there.

________ 07-29-2010 02:02 PM

Regarding Gazdic.

Quote:

"Luke is a good prospect in the realm that he's going to get a chance to develop his talents. To be a tough guy in the National Hockey League he's got what you need, which is a willingness to combat and great size and great strength," said Stars coach Marc Crawford.

"He looks to be a good player too," said Barch. "These days you can't have just one aspect of the game, you've got to be able to play."

Crawford said he likes what he has seen from Gazdic, and believes where a tough player like Gazdic can really carve out a role is by becoming a force on the forecheck.

"Intimidation isn't done just pugilistically, it's mostly done on the forecheck by getting in and being a disturbing presence. Those are the areas where he needs to keep working," said Crawford. "He's got decent speed, but it's got to improve. He's got good reads on the forecheck, and they've got to improve. His ability with the puck is OK, but it's got to improve.

"No matter who you are, you've got to be responsible defensively. That's always a big step for a player coming out of juniors or a college program. Their play away from the puck is so, so important in giving them the opportunity to get more ice time. "

hmmm....why is Cheechoo1860 voting in a Stars prospects thread?

Dr GLU 07-29-2010 02:34 PM

Gazdic does have a future with the team.

I just don't like rating enforcers as top prospects, so I'd never vote for him.

chrissmith 07-29-2010 03:00 PM

"He looks to be a good player too," said Barch. "These days you can't have just one aspect of the game, you've got to be able to play."

Heh.

I agree with what you say about Tousignant and the Stars' current pest overload. I look at a lot of these kids at the bottom end of the prospect pool who will only challenge for top or bottom six scoring or secondary scoring roles. That's where I give Tousignant the edge is in that he fills a niche. No need to rush him, bring him in when he's 23 or 24 after he's no longer welcome in the AHL.

ADD: Definitely nothing to do with upside, just a chances of making it and making an impact in his role type pick.

He's lost.... wandering the boards not sure of who to cheer for since Cheechoo has no home. Maybe?

Maybe the Stars are inviting Cheechoo to training camp as a try out. :sarcasm:

Anyone with a last name like Cheechoo and a hometown like Moose Factory deserves a second, third maybe even fourth chance.:laugh: Since we're seemingly in the business of extending opportunities at redemption (Kari, Crawford), why not Cheechoo? He shoots right and has found the net before.

Modo 07-29-2010 10:26 PM

If we could get him on recall waivers or something, I'd be willing to give him a shot.

Or was he bought out already?

Cheechoo is a FA, but he's done IMO.
The Shoulder and Knee(I think) injures have really hindered his career his shot isn't the same and he isn't the same overall. He would be worth a invite to training camp in case his shot did come back but it's unlikely.
