Tim Brent

What's everyone's read on this guy? I think it's always a good idea to look very hard at those who are re-entering the draft, as they are alot closer to making it than those just becoming eligible usually. Looks like a pretty decent player.

I think he is worth considering. The other guy worth considering as an unsigned 2002 draftee is Aaron Rome(Los Angeles, 4th round).(There is some question as to whether he will go back in the draft or be UFA)

Rome seems to have good size, tools, toughness, and I haven't seen anything printed negatively about him. I have read some other positive scouting reports from people that have watched him....(Not the same as live mind you, but I remember following him at the 2002 draft and thinking that he might be a good mid round steal.)

He sounds like a player similar to Jarrett Stoll.
He's a good all around player, and plays a gritty, two-way game with some decent leadership skills. I think he was the captain of the OHL team for the Russian Challenge or something.

I think he has a chance to play in the league, but the question is, do the Oilers need another 2nd/3rd line plugger?

I'd take a flyer on Brent in the 4th round (3rd if the pickings look slim), but I certainly wouldn't be distraught if he wasn't there when we went to pick in the 4th if we pass on him with the 3rd.

I personally don't think he is as good in either end of the ice as Stoll... similar kind of player, but I truely think Brent is a poor man's Stoll.

Good call George. I was doing a write up on Ashton Rome, (Aaron's younger brother on the same Moose Jaw team), for ISS and when I asked some scouts about him, they kept referring to Aaron saying "Ashton isn't as good as his brother". Maybe if he's around late, he might be worth taking a chance on.

I was thinking about Rome as well, but I didn't think he was going back into the draft. I thought he would become a UFA. To be honest, I'm not sure which is the case.

After doing some research, some of the skuttlebutt is that Rome's agent was thinking more towards first round money to get Rome under contract. Kings are deep enough on the blueline they were more inclined to let him walk than give up the big dough.

The other part is that he will be 21 on September 27th 2004 and some people feel that since that makes him ineligible to return to junior, he will be UFA. I would like someone to confirm this if they know. (Again, I have seen opinion on this but no one that knows with great certainty.)

I was under the impression Rome would be a free agent, but that's just what I heard.

Looking at the CBA, it says North American players aren't eligible for the draft if they're 21 or older, but it doesn't say as of when. It might be the all-important September 15, in which case he'd go back into the draft, but I really have no idea.

So I basically just typed all this out for nothing, because it doesn't really help!

I really like the idea of picking Brent up. I do see him as a lesser version of Stoll BUT I do not see that as a bad thing.

What I do see is Reasoner and Horcoff and an eventual need to replace both of them (prolly in 2 or 3 years) and I don't see Niinimaki or Pouliot being the gusy to do it.

That means that there WILL be room on this team for a good 3rd or 4th line center and one of Brodziak or Brent would be a good place to start looking for THAT guy.

I would use a 3rd round pick, at best, on him.
