I'd say if he gets really lucky he'll land a spot from ECHL.
Same league Erik Cole's playing in?

I presume maybe they like the "polish" of Lavallee a bit more than some of the other rougher-around-the-edges guys. It's really hard to say anything based on watching the Making the Cut show, since the snippets of game action they give you really don't let you see much of the picture. But my vague impression of Lavallee from the show was that he was a generically "sound", smart, safe type of defenseman. Not particularly physical, not inclined to jump into the offense, but still with good size and good skating ability despite all that.

I dunno, that sort of describes a Karl Dykhuis, Patrick Traverse, Scott Lachance kind of dman, except one who plays in the second level in Germany (below the DEL) and doesn't stand out there statistically in any way.

On the plus side, Scotty Bowman and Mike The Wall liked him. And he sounds like a smart, likeable, kind of guy.

But I also said he seemed like he was kind of smart and safe and sound. Sorry about that. Traverse... for his tall-ish (but not very) frame and fundamental skating and puckhandling ability.

Habs's 4th line? Sorry to burst your bubble... but he's a defenceman. He'll be lucky if he gets a regular spot in the ECHL, IMO.

He's playing in the top league of germany so I can't see why he wouldn't be good enough to be a regular in the ECHL. And by the way, many players of the show have some good stats in the ECHL...just take a look at Dan Tessier!

[QUOTE=Darz]I doubt any of the six NHL clubs took this thing too seriously, and I would be surprised if even one of these guys stick as an AHL'er, so....

I thought the guys representing the teams looked like they were being held at gunpoint. Maybe there minds were on other topics like the CBA. Even the fans looked fake. This was pretty lame..

So tell me Scotty Bowman said that Lavalee was his favorite defenseman is he wrong?

I watched the show, and saw every episode of it. I thought that Lavalle was pretty consistent, something that a lot of players were not in the MTC training camp. Demone was good, as was Jacob. A defenceman called Periard is a guy who reminded me a lot of Bouillon in his style of play. He's 6'0" but solidly built, and is a good checker, having put one forward with his head down out of the competition with a solid and legal open ice check. I'm sure he'll land a minor league [ie. non-AHL,thanks to the Lockout] contract with someone this season. Dickenson was flashy good at times, but showed some inconsistencies at other times.

Here's an excerpt about the final show, that has some comments from Lavalle and Gainey. In the article, it sounded like Lavalle was a little shocked at the announcement of his name, which may explain the hat and handshake thing. I'm pretty sure he shook his hand, but it was brief; he didn't stand there for pictures like the other players did.

Nope. Cole is playing in DEL (Deutschen Eishockey Liga, 1st Bundesliga), the top league in Germany. Lavallee was playing in 2nd Bundesliga last season and this season.

You guys are making way too much out of this, but with no season I don't really blame you.

Who knows if Lavallee will even cut it in the ECHL.

Well if he gets signed, then we can see what they do with him. I knew I should have paid more attention to this, but in all honesty I thought it was more of a joke in the way they tried to make it like so much drama. Guess we'll see what happens next year. I'll add his hockeydb profile to the links page so anyone can follow how he does this year.


Seems he's the youngest defensemen on his team, and had a decent season last year compared to the rest of his team.

Good pick, let's send him straight to our affiliates in the semi-pro senior amateur league (in Rwanda) and see if he can make an impact there.

joke !

I'll be happy if He makes the ECHL.I'll be very happy if He makes the AHL.

No for real , I haven't seen him play yet.I hope I'll see him play soon.He has decent size though.It's no big deal it's not like He'll play a major role for us in the future.
