Brendan Shinnimin (signed NHL deal, not available, too bad)
Adam Hughesman (top recruit, may get pro deal - Adam would fit in very well with the Bisons)
Mason Wilgosh (tremendous leader, hard working kid - would be a natural replacement for Hellyer or Benias)
James Henry (tremendous leader, great competitor, good offensive potential - could be a future Bisons captain)
Jesse Paradis (solid two way player)

Corbin Baldwin (monster dman, may get pro deal)

Deven Dubyk (solid goalie - played a lot with Red Deer this past year)


Derek Gingera (high scoring Junior A player, small and fast)
Blake Chartier (solid player with good hands)
David Conrad (played 3 years in the Dub before finishing his junior career in the MJ)
Craig Scott (great finish to a Junior A career with a strong playoff run with the Saints, led the MJ in playoff scoring)

Dylan Heide (solid high scoring Jr A dman, good student who won a major Junior A scholarship, currently studying at the U of M)
Paul Bonar (very good Jr A dman)
Paul Sohor (had 3 years in the Dub before playing with Selkirk Steelers as a 20 year old, brings toughness and a bit of offence)
Drew Scurfield (solid dman)
Tyler Wiwchar (also won a major Junior A scholarship, already studying at the U of M)

Matt Krahn (all star MJHL goalie, backup with the Allan Cup National Championship team)

this is a very good crop to choose from but other than Baldwin and maybe a couple of the MJ dmen not a lot of size. Some of the MJHL players are already students at the U of M.
no pressure!?
ched, this is a great list I love it! I can now follow and see where these guys might end up! Hopefully alot come home to the home of the JETS. Unfortunately a list like this, this early in the campaign, just puts pressure on coach mike to get em, maybe he is done? But more importantly it just encourages the UBC guy and CAlgary guys to phone them 8 times a week instead of 7, keeping them low on the radar is what sirant would prefer!?! these guys are nuts i am told the way they are unrelenting! worse than the telemarketers that call at 605pm each day they are out of control i am told by people around here!
