katatoniak Do anybody knows what the London's defensive unit looks for next year ?

From what I can see we have quite a lot of decent young defense:
Scott Harrington - awesome
Jared Tinordi - this is huge
Jake Worrad - should be ready for big minutes this year
Reid McNeill - a great Cinderella story
Mike D'Orazio - could be used for trade bait for forward
Troy Donnay - big, solid
Tommy Hughes
Kevin Raine - good young defenseman - this signing may hurt his chances
Dakota Mermis - I thought it sounded like he was being counted on.
Cody Donnay - drafted him with high hopes - traded for his brother to have him skip NCAA - it worked
There actually may be too many good deserving defensemen on this team. I would like to see some trades to bring in a forward or two.

The fact that the Hunter brothers were so aggressively pursuing him, I wouldn't be surprised if he quickly jumped into a top pairing unit.

They've been following him for 2 years, and seem to know something about his offense that we don't. So I doubt they were that high on him just to have him play 4th Dman minutes.

I can see him getting either 4th Dman minutes, but 1st unit PP, and PK. Or top pairing minutes with 1st Unit PP and PK.

Appearently, however Hindle later confirmed with the London Ontario News Paper. So I think we are in the clear.

Caisse is a friggn wild card and I don't know if he is or isn't reputable. I know however that Hindle is.

I think Tinordi is actually in a situation where it's better to stay in the NCAA.
Think about it, more training, stronger opponents, good program. Whereas he doesn't really need to improve offensive skills or anything like Leblanc.

actually, if he improved his offensive skills a bit and his d game kept progressing, he'd be in fantastic shape for the NHL.

No fighting in the NCAA. He's gonna learn how to fight in the O.

I'm excited about this. We get more coverage & more highlights of him. Plays for a good coach as well. However, that being said, I'll wait to see the results. This may barely make a change in his development. All this may do is give him more exposure, more games and more competition against U20 candidates.

Ain't that the same clown who was 100% sure that Frolov was being traded to MTL and then said the league jinxed the trade?

Sounds like the Hunters are going to work on Tinordi's offensive game, nice to see if he can get it all together in a package of two Dman with size....our own potential Tyler Myers?

Apparently he got it from this guy:

Well, if it's true, that's cool... when the Knights come to play in Sudbury (if they do this season), I'll get to watch him play at least once.

I'm pleased (for myself) but I hope it's the wiser of the possible decisions (for him). We'll see.

Woa really? of course i know that, when he came up I loved the kid. Had tons of skill but hit people and wasn't scared to fight. His ego got to him but they did a good job developing him.

I don't think people saying this have ever played sports at a competitive level. In any given sport, the best way to improve is to have in-game situations.

How can you expect him to actually develop his mean streak and learn about the intimidation part of the game if he plays with a ****ing cage in his face?! He'll also get to play more games, which is always positive.

He'll get to workout in the summer, and bulk up. He'll learn a lot under Hunter, he'll get tons of minutes, and it's not like our previous prospects such as McDonagh and Fisher did develop great while going the NCAA route anyway.

What I want from him is a nasty, physical mother****er who'll get to play with Subban, and who will be an effective top-4 d-man in the NHL. As others mentioned, Hunter has to know something we don't about him offensively, and I'm sure being great friends with Mark Tinordi (Jarred's father), he'll get to pay some special attention to the kid.

Actually Mcdonagh is on track to make the roster of the NYR. Fischer was a bust before the NCAA did anything with him.

You can learn to hit while wearing a cage, leave the pointless brawling to 4th-line goons and 3rd-pair defencemen.

Making the roster for the NYR? Are you freakin' serious?! McDonagh has to play AHL. He's nowhere near the NHL at that point in time.

He might learn to hit, with the kind of game he's playing and the kind of d-man he'll be, sooner or later, he'll have to face the music and compose with guys like Chris Neil, Milan Lucic or Dion Phaneuf... and later, Zack Kassian. Especially playing in our division, which is getting tougher and tougher. He'll also get to play more games and he'll improve his skills with the puck big time.
