TT is also very young. But I agree about the late riser worry.

Backstrom was a late riser, was he not?

If the caps keep the picks I'm liking several players in that range. So no draftnik stress this time around .

As we all know on draft day there will be some risers and fallers.

Not that I recall, not dramatically. Kessel was the slipper but Backstrom was pretty highly regarded throughout his draft year.

I worry less about Teuvo being a late riser than the size/strength package, projecting it safely and that fit on a team that's already somewhat soft.

USA/Canada about to start.

I don't think Nick was a riser. I was reading the thread in the prospect section about teams draft boards, and someone posted the 2006 draft video. Pierre told GMGM that Backstrom was the best player. Doubt that would happen if he was a riser.

Very, very impressive. I'd probably take him over Yakupov were he available this year. Still needs some work in his own end at times but he has the makings of a franchise defenseman.

Grigorenko's Quebec Remparts blew a 3-0 series lead and 2-0 Game 7 lead to Halifax. Saint John will play Chicoutimi in the semis.

'12 prospects still alive in CHL playoffs: Ceci/Ottawa, Maatta/London, Frk/Halifax, Faksa/Kitchener, Pouliot/Portland (G7 tonight), Reinhart & Samuelsson/Edmonton and Rielly/Moose Jaw.

With Jones, there's also the Chara size potential. If there's any top prospect out there that might grow to be 6'6"+, it's him.

His dad is Popeye Jones, so I'd say closer to Chara.

Teravainen with 2+1 in an 8-0 win over Germany. They'll play Sweden in the semis tomorrow. Canada/Russia at 1.

The Fighting Saints announced Thursday that forward and captain Zemgus Girgensons will miss the remainder of the season with a fractured jaw. Girgensons suffered the injury in his first shift of the first period of Tuesday’s win over Team USA. He continued to play in the game, even assisting on a goal, until he could no longer tolerate the pain, exiting the game after the second period. His jaw will be wired shut for a minimum of four weeks, and the recovery process will prevent him from playing in the remainder of the Clark Cup Playoffs. He is expected to make a full recovery in the offseason.

I've only seen Teravainen play a couple times but I think he's a very interesting prospect. Almost hoping for him now, I guess it probably helps that every ranking service is in love with him

Damn, wanted to see more of Girgensons. Hope all goes well for him though.

So what I've read of Teravainen suggests a player in the mold of Patrick Kane, is that off-base?

Somewhat similar. Not as flashy or as good a skater at this point but very crafty nonetheless.

Gaunce moved to LW on a line with Laughton & Reinhart vs. Russia.

Collberg with 2+1 (mostly in garbage time) in a 7-3 win over Finland. Teravainen held to an assist.

Sweden will take on the winner of USA/Canada, which is tied 1-1 through 20. Gaunce is at LW once again.

USA crushes Sweden 7-0 for Gold. The US team just didn't give teams anything for free. Very impressive team defense. 2+3 for Kerdiles. Collberg didn't do much, which highlights some concern in him being able to create time & space. Forsberg had some dangerous chances but couldn't finish. Hampus Lindholm was flying in the first period. I don't have a great read on his skill set but he can really skate.

Canada takes Bronze 5-4 in OT. Gaunce with a short-handed goal. He also had a penalty shot miss. Teravainen held scoreless. His linemates weren't very good...Barkov had a fairly quiet tournament after showing pretty well at the WJC. Teravainen did show off some pretty good back-checking and how smooth he is running a PP.
