We could be looking at a few real good years coming down the road. If we get the players being talked about this team will be good. Shore being the key guy to land, not sure about the others being talked about.

Going from scoring 39-40 goals at Jr B to scoring 30 in the O is one big step!

The 96 age group should turn out to be a great group in a year or two.

I would think we would be looking to make some moves over the next couple of months. Maybe moving a couple of 93-94's to land a couple of seasond vets to make a run.

Hawerchuk definitely has a soft spot for Beyers, and even Buonomo. With Beyers it is the Orangeville connection much as it was with EZ. But I like both those guys, but anyone thinking Beyers will be moved as an OA will be surprised how tough that will be. Expect someone else to be moved. As for Fotinos, Dale wants him to take the torch in due time for sure although that will be a tall order for a kid that just turned 17 in January and holding the most important position on the team. Hence the reason Nieds sticks around as insurance that the club doesn't blow games yet still develops their future goalie. I'd have to say that Dale is poised to advance the club again next year and maybe take a healthy run. Will be exciting to watch.

The one thing that bothers me the most about the OA disscussion is buonomo. In my opinion he isnt worth having if it means him being an over ager. With all the over agers we have as of now buonomo doesn't crack my top 3 OA list, for a couple of reasons. One being, he takes not so smart penalties almost every game. Another because he is not as good as some of the other OA talent we have on the team. A player like him can always be replaced by a younger player. It is not hard to get a player that can stick up for your team and fight, in my opinion we can have so much more talent on the team without him in the lineup as opposed to him being in the lineup.

True shut down D don't grow on trees, like you make it seem.....we just drafted a 16 year-old clone of Ryan O'connor

Agreed...it's always easy to overlook the very competent defensive defenseman in favour of someone who is a little more flashy. Look who was getting the minutes in the first round of this year's playoffs (i.e. before everyone else got hurt)...McNeil and Ekblad certainly, then Buonomo...

There is some stuff out there, but I think any trades are hinging on some other decisions that need to be made. I wouldnt expect anything much to happen until late summer. Maybe just tinkering.

I'd appreciate an update too... I've been out of town and unfortunately my schedule in Saint John somehow missed the Q final as well.

Ok, a few things about the scrimmage. Justin Scott was amazing. He was fast, and he definetly outplayed almost all of the other players. Another player that surprised me was a player that most of you wouldn't be familiar with. I believe his name was fetovich. He is defenceman that Barrie had signed not long ago and is a player that I beleive that can make the team in a few years. He was responsible in his own end and played his position perfectly. Perlini of course was great, as well as Garcia. Both players showed that they wanted to make a difference with this club in the upcoming years. Lemiuex was also great, while using his speed to outplay the opossing defenders. I am starting to be happy about how things are shaping up here in Barrie and I am looking forward to the next season.

Further to Devster's observations. Several of the prospects from last year did show to a reasonable degree. I agree completely on Justin Scott. I thought Cash Seraphim looked skinny and awkward , but very aggressive - he even had a short scrap! Fabrizio Ricci showed some skill as did Nicholas Santoro. On defence Jayme Forslund impressed me. Of the new people, the thought of having Brendan Lemieux and his sandpaper& skill) in the lineup at some point in the future is intriguing. Obviously, Perlini and the other early round picks were interesting but I really liked Matthew McLeod RC - 6th round with a late birthday. Plenty of drive in his game. Cray Roberge LW/C 8th round, was a very willing participant with a measure of skill.During the shootouts, I was blown away by the shot of Jack Campbell LD - 12th round. One other impression was left by Mackenzie Blackwood G - 5th round. He wasn't that busy but played under control. Could he back up Fotinos instead of the Neiderberger/Fotinis tandem? We'll have to wait and see as always! No surprises from the point of view of who showed up, but I suppose this would not be the occasion. Roll on training camp!!

Justin Scott will play next season but wants a gold package...Howie is bit tight on giving them out, although if they are signed to a pro contract, they are not on the hook for the scholarship.

Still woprking on Labanc...i believe he would like to come...the 50K sticking point to get him out fo the USNTDP is a bit tough.

Shore is a wait and see....we must wait and see who drafts him...lets all hope for winnipeg.

As far as Lemieux is concerned his deal with UND I believe is something that majority of educated folk would NEVER turn down. Program has turned over many players on to the SHOW and other Pro hockey programs. Schedule is better than other typical NCAA programs, facility is out of this world amazing and it's currently in the #1 Conference. Although there will be some re-alignment next year in that area where 2 strong Conferences will emerge. No, I've spoken with Claude many times and have made my opinion clear in that he's done the best for Brendon's future.

I'm not doubting you. I'm just surprised a play like that would be looking for that kind package.

If so I wouldn't count on him being in the line-up in Sept.

Stats are not the best way to judge a player like Justin Scott. A 16 year old in the OJHL that has any impact is impressive.

He has been getting alot of interest from NCAA teams. The offers that he will get will be equivalent to a OHL Gold package. He has to look out for his best interests.

Completely agree with this statement....it's a kid's life as much as anything else...plus, Barrie has lots of packages left...I believe 4 - 3 after perlini....

Actually I think any 16 year old kid that is signed should authomatically be offered a "Gold Package" for education.
