Too early in the season to tell, do they have the same coaches as last year?

monarchs

Monarchs won another one last night in the interlake... This maybe the team to beat this year.... New coaches and I hear that the players have a new attitude

Yes, I completely agree with that. Many people that were in the allstar team did not deserve to be there. Except one thing I forgot to mention that she was nominated for top defense, i've never seen that before in my life! You do make a good point though, the Hawks D were not strong whatsoever.

Rumor

So what's the deal with Miller quitting the Sharks? Must be something bad going on there that he would do such a thing in a draft year....doesn't seem like a positive move for someone who wants to get drafted.

Regardless of Miller's quitting. Who are the boys to watch this last half of the year leading to the draft? The orginal list is pretty far off now isn't it?

Miller quit, but watching him a couple games this year, it was clear he had started to quit awhile ago. Not playing with the same fire as last year. The Sharks now prepared to let him sit out, he won't get his wish to go to a team in Sask.
The few scouts I have spoken to have said they wouldn't tough him with a 10 foot pole come draft time. Good bets someone will still take a chance on him though.
A few scouts have commented how the 97 crop is way more talented, a more solid group, than last year's 96 group.

Too bad he doesn't understand "Team", he has a lot of talent but needs grow up, maybe Notre Dame would be good for him?

Ok we all know about his talent and his "issues" but let's talk about the top 97's that WANT to play hockey. Can we get a list going on the top 20 forwards, 10 defensemen and 5 goalies. So we can have a good discussion about the great talent in Manitoba.

I have played with kaynen vaeth for one season and i know he's an all around good goalie. He has speed ,stamina,smarts,and strength. He is a very good goalie,and will make it somewhere in his future career in hockey

Hayden Dola:Goalie with lots of skill
Brett Friesen:Goalie with potential.
I'd like to start off by saying yes i can agree Rylee Zimmer is a good forward. He's quick with the puck,has a good shot,and can definitely skate,his only flaw is that he gets off his game very easily. In the 2010-2011 tournament of champions in Brandon,against seine river snipers i drew 3 penalties from him in a span of 15 minutes.
If his coach didn't tell him to smarten up he would've been kicked out of the game. As soon as he learns to control his temper he'll be unstoppable

First saw Zimmer about 5 years ago in a spring tournament. He was on the ice for the whole game, didn't go to the bench once. As tired as he was, still dominated. Saw he was a special kid then, and when I have seen him since, it still holds true.
As for getting thrown off his game, there are not many 14 year olds that handle the attention they get from other players sometimes in the best way. It is a learning process, and I am sure he will figure it out.

RE: Rylee Zimmer

We still have Zimmer as the top ranked prospect in Manitoba. Gardiner is another with first round potential. Most clubs we talk to have dropped Miller off the board for the first round, but I think someone will still take a chance on him - maybe not using their first pick overall, however.

Jackson Keane is having a great year and with his blood line, that may be enough to solidify him in the first 2 or 3 rounds.

Dark horse from Manitoba is Jordy Stallard from Brandon. Lots of buzz behind the scenes on this kid.

Travis Kilbrei, Colt Conrad and Ethan Williams also have 2nd or 3rd round potential.

Into the 3rd through 5th rounds, Kolesar, Kuczek, Purtill, Anderson, Verhelst and Allison are gaining interest.

Leipsic, Oliver, Dola, Groot & Armour are other names getting attention in Manitoba.

I think both Layte and Court should get a look. Before Layte got hurt he was the Monarchs best D. Court is solid, two way player....not sold on Anderson from the Warriors though....smart but too slow. Taraschuk and Lamothe are better skaters. Also think Bouchard from Warriors will get a look....

Post showcases and spring POE

Guess we are down to 40 players now , a few surprises.Official list not out yet. Some kids didn't have a good Spring POE, but made it through based on performance througout the year , which is probably fair. Players who were consistant at the 3 Showcases [ Lycar , Conrad , Wirth , Nell , McDonald amongst others ] also had a good POE and will likely all be at the top 40 camp. Dola , Petit and Holben looked good in net. Verhelst had a great year though and should be there? Lots of depth in this group.

Top 40

Here are the players we heard about, official list will come out early May. Please add or correct.
Stallard, Lawrence, Campanella, Shearer, Compton and Verhelst from Brandon, Dola and Kilbrei from Interlake, Nell and Oliver from Westman, Anderson from Yellowhead, Lycar, Lenschysyn, Kolesar, Gardiner, Boyd and Purtill also on.From Pembina there are Jeanson, Conrad, Wirth and McDonald. Not sure about Allison, he was injured at tryouts. That's about half of the squad, obviously all hearsay, so lots of Winnipeg kids on that we haven't heard about.

My only viewing of Conrad was at Westerns but he was lights out. I would gladly take him on Oil Kings any day
