McIlrath could play 9 games and then go back down and it wouldn't count against his ELC, but there's really no reason to do that with him. I don't think it would benefit him at this point in his career.

I think preseason would be enough for him this year (plus traverse city). Save the 9 games for next year when he will be closer to making the big club.

I think McColgan could be a steal of the draft. I remember reading an article in THN two years ago before the 09 draft saying McColgan would be a top prospect in this years draft. IDK what happened, but he's a good bet to make the team in two years or so.

He's pretty small and struggled last year to up his scoring. Someone came on here and said he was sick/injured at the start of the season and turned it up after February, but there are obviously still question marks about whether he can produce offense consistently

regarding Thomas...there's a picture of him next to McIlrath and he doesn't look that small. I'm not so sure it'll be size that holds him back at the next level, but whether he can just translate his skills to the NHL

edit: Thomas standing next to McIlrath and Miller (who apparently never smiles)



So yeah he's obviously smaller, but I dunno, he doesn't look tiny or something.

Traverse City tournament is going to be so exciting this year. Wish those A-holes would finally cover the tournament and air it on NHL Network.

I fully expect him to see a few pre-season games, but I'd be surprised to see him play any regular season ones unless he really takes his game to a new level. He's improving for certain, but he still needs to fill out his frame and refine the skills that are going to make him an effective defender at the NHL level, and not just an enforcer on the blue line. The organization wants this kid to be Derian Hatcher, not Dale Purinton, so necessary development time is a must.

You can't read too much into this camp. He's a bigger and stronger than pretty much everyone on the ice, and many of these kids are never going to see NHL ice in their career. Wait until pro camp opens up and see if he can stick around for a couple preseason games. Then we can get a better feel for where he's at.

^^^ Well, the other thing to look for in this kind of camp is how he handles the puck, moves it, gets into position, etc (not that we can see all that but as an in general what you look for). things that him being bigger than everyone else doesn't really effect.

It apparently costs a ton of money to setup the cameras and equipment and they don't get nearly enough viewers to make it worthwhile showing

Next year it won't matter, unless we plan on having him play an overage year in the WHL. If he's in Hartford, a year will come off his ELC no matter how many NHL games he plays.

Who's MacDougall? Hasn't he scored in two different scrimmages now?

Potential good add for HFD?

Not sure if that info is correct or not, it looks like he struggled at the end of the season, final 22 games of the season he only scored 2 goals, 14 assists, first half of the season is where he got most of his points.

But in the playoffs he was a complete beast scoring 8 goals and 11 assists in 10 games. I believe he was first in WHL scoring in the playoffs when his team got eliminated.

If McIlrath is 6'5", then Miller has to be around 6'3", based upon that photo.

They should just set up a stationary camera and let us watch from a web feed!

Eh, I think because McIlrath is behind him it makes Miller look a bit bigger then he is. He is probably the 6'1 or 6'2 he is listed.

McIlrath looks significantly more mature. and Thomas has good size (for a "small guy") he's rather solid.

McColgan had tonsilitis at the start of the season and missed three weeks and then said he was weak afterwards. One of the traits I see in Gordie's drafting is focusing on what players accomplish in playoffs and tournaments. McColgan did it in playoffs and Miller did it in U18 worlds. Good, smart strategy to identify money players.

It's not unheard of for someone his height to hit 200 pounds (Francis Bouillon) but I imagine that would impact his speed a lot. If he could hit 180 I wouldn't be the slightest bit worried for him in the NHL. He is surprisingly shifty already.

Thomas? He said he put on 7-9 lbs this summer so he's probably somewhere around 173 now, judging from his draft weight numbers

Claude Giroux plays at 172 lbs but is 5'11!

I don't think people realize how shifty Thomas is. It reminded me of Hagelin in his AHL stint. Defenseman couldn't lay a finger on him, he was too quick along the boards and in open ice.

Unless you are drafting a goalie in the 1st round...

*in Clark's defense, he didn't draft Montoya*
