Very nice points, I agree with everything you said here.

Kid is on his way to being a top 5 talent in the world. I hope he goes to a team where he'll get some major exposure. Imagine him in Montreal, Toronto, Pittsburgh or Philly?

Yes, but it will most likely be Columbus/Winnipeg.

Don't say such terrible things! I'm hoping he goes soemwhere that will put him in the spotlight. Of course, he could pull a Crosby or Ovechkin and save a dying franchise but I don't like seeing that.

It's not that I dislike seeing teams find success, it's more the obnoxious bandwagon fans.

I completely agree. I just shake my head wondering where Caps/Pens/Hawks fans were 10 years ago. And we'll see the same with my favourite team, the Leafs, when they get competitive. It's the nature of sports, but I don't like it.

Great job Chris.

I love these series and are a must read for me. Hopefully you can churn out more this year (I know I'm being greedy, but they are terrific for info).

Cheers!

Wow...thanks all. I appreciate all the comments and feedback more than you know.

This was admittedly an extra special article to do with getting a quote from a true hockey legend - Igor Larionov - class act!

Shouldn't mind him going to the Jets, then. Winnipeg has had a solid fanbase since forever despite not even having a team for the last 15 years.

Red Deer came to town for last weekend for a two game series. Dumba looked great. He had 3 points in the game I went to, and the goal was unreal. He got the puck at the point from Petrovic, did a spin-o-rama around a Royals Forward, Walked in and snapped it top corner. Absolutely insane this kid. Didn't get to see much of his hitting ability or his defensive play but he looked reliable.

Mathew Dumba

My search function doesn't seem to work, as I typed in this guys name and got nothing back. Not wanting to waste time going through pages, I'll start a new topic.

I saw the rankings came out today and noticed that Dumba was ranked #2 in the WHL.

Where do you see this guy getting drafted? What spot?

Thanks.

He'll be taken 3rd IMO behind Yakupov and Grigorenko. The guy has everything: size, mobility, speed, IQ, leadership.
