Torp I've been told should be the 8th D for HV71, the team that won a league championship last year, so if he sticks with the team, he'll get to play in the Champions Cup against Perezhogin's team. But I've heard that HV71 has the best D core in the SEL so while the coach is said to give young players ice time, it's going to be hard for him to see much ice time according to some HV71 fans. So he could see some time in the Allveksan (not spelled right but it's like our AHL) or he could see time with the J20 team. He also appears to be all but a lock for Team Sweden at the WJC's.

Paquet should have a big year, Clarkson is once again looked at as one of the top teams in the ECAC and it's his last year in the NCAA so he should dominate as he's playing for a contract next summer.
