Still it's looking very good in the early stages for the '06 draft. Maxwell, White and Carle are making a name for themselves in the CHL, plus Fischer is adpating well in the NCAA, should be that puck moving defensemen we need although we are talking years from now for these guys. It's great to see them get off to a good start.

Also what I find impressive is Matt D'Agostini, a 190th overall in '05 with only 2 years in the OHL, jumps right into the AHL and is 1 pt outside the top 20 in rookie scoring in the league, tied for the team lead in rookie scoring with Grabovski, despite turning 20 around 30 days ago.

I wrote a little about the good start for the farm system.
All good news. I'm particularly impressed with D'Agostini's numbers. I haven't seen much of him, but he's struck me as a real darkhorse type of prospect, the kind of guy who's game will translate well to the pros as an all-around solid, Johnson-esque type. But, again, I haven't seen enough of him to speak with any authority, just nebulous impressions.
