I don't see him jumping past Brodin, especially not with how things shook out at the WC. However, I think I rank him over Coyle. Then again, I'm not really that big of a Coyle fan in general so that might not be saying as much as it could be.

His negatives are things that can be corrected, and can even be corrected at the CHL level if he's disciplined and well coached.

As for making the team, give him a shot, but I doubt he'll win a spot out of camp. With this team, I don't see any reason not to let him win a spot if he can.
Make him watch Brodin tapes.

Speed, Aggressiveness, shooting... either you have it or you don't. Defense is teachable.

BTW Dumba seems to be very, very coachable. So those things can be taught and sunk in.

Perfect example of this is Brent Burns....although Goober still has a way to perfect the defensive part of his game, IMO.

Can Dumba play in the AHL next year, or does he have to go to the CHL if he does not make the roster out of camp?

As it stands right now I have him right behinds Larsson... if nothing were to change in his game, that's where I'd keep him. Who knows how he'll progress, he could definitely climb to 3rd - not sure if I could see him pass up Brodin right now though... hard to say.

He would have to go back to Red Deer....too young for AHL.

Has to go back next year but can jump in the AHL in 13-14.

I like the sound of this.

Now we wait.

He has to go back to Juniors if he doesn't make the NHL roster.

Exactly... I've said it before... much of Dumba's game reminds me of Burns.

Our prospect team:

Larsson - Coyle - Granlund
Dumba - Brodin
Hackett

That is...scary

Don't forget Zucker - Phillips - Coyle

I say he could jump Brodin IF he hits the absolute ceiling and becomes another Drew Doughty or similar type player. I think he's more likely to be a Kronwall/Subban #2 guy who could pair up wonderfully with a smart defensive player like Brodin.

Didn't realize Dumba was only 17 years old. Can't wait to see a Dumba and Brodin pairing for years to come. Brodin providing solid positioning and puck movement out of the zone with Dumba providing the scoring touch and the occasional huge hit.

He is only 17, so one year for sure, and if they waited two more years before bringing him up i wouldn't blame them, but i think we'll see him very soon.

I really want to see what this kid can do when he comes up, but he is very young.

That's the thing... I'm not sure I see him reaching that absolute Doughty ceiling. It'd be great, and would be thrilled if he did, but I'm expecting the Kronwall/Subban result moreso. Which I'm plenty happy with as well.

Which is why Fletcher has already earned that extension! What he has done for this team via the draft is simply... STUNNING!
