I'll go out on a limb and say he'll make a bigger offensive impact than the more hyped Austin Watson.

Glad we were able to lock him up, I think he has real potential. We'll see how he adjusts to having less time and space to work with, though.

he played well at the WJC, but was also asked to play a different role than our name prospects like Watson. But that is neither here nor there as each would be counted on to do different things here as Watson is a two-way forward and Cehlin would fall into the more skilled role. Maybe we get lucky and they both are good in a few years. In the meantime, the Admirals should be getting two good peices to watch grow and develop.

He hasn't posted on here in a while; I suspect he may have stopped when money started getting tight, or perhaps he lost his password. Whatever the case, please remember him and his family this week.
Send him back if you see him and your posts have been missed as well.

Just wanted to let you know, that Teemu Laakso has signed with HC Severstal Tsherepovets in KHL, on a 2-year-deal. Source: YLE

YLE also released a comment about Laakso and how he just wasn't good enough for NHL. Topic says it all, freely translated "When even infinite perseverence isn't enough to make it in the NHL".

He sucked anyway. Made the team out of camp, was awful, was never called up again. Figured the writing was on the wall when Joonas Jarvinen was signed.

Yeah, he wasn't going to make it. It's sad, because you could tell he really wanted to be at this level, and he worked his ass off trying to get here, but sometimes (as I've learned the hard way) even giving everything you have isn't enough.

I think he'll do well for himself in Russia, though. Best of luck to him.

No more Lax-so-tive comments. He always played hard in Milwaukee. He scored 3 goals and 17 assists for 20 pts in 55 games with 74 PIMs and -2 this season.

I remember Eriks. I haven't seen him for a few years. He used to take photos behind the south goal at the BC. Nice guy.

While we signed Cehlin, we chose not to sign 2010 7th rd pick David Elsner.

Elsner didn't do much playing in the German tier 2 league, so I was hopeful that coming over to play for SSM in the OHL would help.

It didn't.

Watson doesn't play Hartnell's power game, is better defensively, worse offensively. I'd say Watson's high end upside is Jordan Staal, low end is Vernon Fiddler, and middle-ground\most likely Jarrett Stoll.

Cehlin - even at his highest, i'm not comparing a decent 5th rounder to a likely hall of famer. Cehlin is essentially a speedier Sergei Kostitsyn. High end potential is Michael Grabner.

Latta- less skill than Comrie, more pest. I don't see him ever being a real scorer in the NHL. Similar ability set (not a character\personality comparison) to Sean Avery.

I don't get to watch these guys a lot, but from what I've heard, Watson will likely be Legwand 2.0, with a little less speed and a little more grit.

Cehlin is a tough one. Very fast, very small. SK is probably his ceiling, but I've been wrong before.

Latta is going to grind people to death. Bottom 6 forward, but he is gonna be the consumate predator.

Last time I saw Leggy in person, he had a bad knee and was booed in Milwaukee for skating up and down the middle of the ice like a push rod center. I assume that he is better now. Watson was here a year ago. He needs a season or two in Milwaukee.

Cehlin is a player that I haven't seen, so no report.

Latta matches the profile above. He isn't afraid to drop the gloves despite not being the biggest or strongest guy on the ice. He can chip in some goals, maybe 10 a year.

poor kid got 1 game in the NHL.... just enough to be able to tell your grandkids, or just enough to make you really depressed that you didn't have the stuff to make it...

Just updated my system roster ap.

First off, Jesus I hope the new coach for Milwaukee likes kids. Here are the guys I have who could be coming to the Land of beer, brats, and bikes.

Daniel Bang
Anthony Bietto
Patric Cehlin
Mattias Ekholm
Magnus Hellberg
Kevin Henderson
Joonas Jarvinen
Jack Maclellan
Charles Olivier-Roussel
Joonas Rask
Josh Shalla
Austin Watson

12 guys. Did not include S. Caron simply because he's a UFA. 7 forwards, 4 defensemen, and a goalie.

COR is in the AHL because he's done his 5 in the CHL. Same with Shalla. some of the Europeans could be sent back across the pond.

a minor note, but Kevin Henderson is 26. Not really a kid, he's an AHL veteran, formerly in the Sharks organization.

When is the prospect camp? I know the last few years it's been right after the draft. Any word on when it happens this year?
