Will be pumped to see the Memorial Cup next year! Could see lots of Habs prospects. Also loving Timmins new open mindness, taking more CHL players (It seems) than he did before the Leblanc (09) draft year

Just wondering....what are the previews as far as the teams of our prospects aside from the Blades who no matter what are going to the MemCup, what's the chance of our guys going? Or maybe, if some of our guys' teams are too poor, any chance they get traded to better teams? I guess that's also a possibility.

Thrower and Dietz with the Blades are locks.

Looking at heir line up, Windsor could come back on top. (Vail)

Drummondville (Archambault) and Chicoutimi (Hudon) aren't contenders. Archambault could be traded but I don't think Hudon will.

Tim Bozon with Kamloops I don't know.

Our European draftees coming to play in the CHL are the other options.

Kamloops did finish last season with 47 wins and a 9th overall ranking in the CHL. They lose a few key guys over the summer, but Guy Charron is a good coach and I expect they will be competitive again.

Really can't wait to see what Collberg does this year in the SEL.

I get a really good feeling with this kid. He reminds me of karlson (in build and mannerisms, same look in his eye). I think he'll be a big part of the team in the future. Great draft! For once I'm completely happy with our picks. Usually there's something to groan about.

Also Excited to see how Tim Bozon does in the WHL with a year under his belt.. Guy Charron (Coach of Kamloops) said that he was on a second line last year.. This year he would be on the first line as per his coach, so will be nice to see if he can get a 40-40 this year

Definitely going to catch some Oil Kings games this year to watch Bozon and Thrower.

Do you guys think Gallagher will be with the Giants or the Dogs this upcoming season? Will he still be allowed to play for the Giants?

He'll be with the dogs. I don't think he's eligible, nor would it benefit him to play junior another year.

There's a three 20+ player limit per team, but alas, I'm too lazy to do the research.

I really like this player, though. Reminds my of Iginla when he talks:



A tough SOB, too, despite his size.

Some highlights:

Scratch that, he is eligible. But it's time for him to be in the pros.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens with Galchenyuk in Sarnia.

They went all-in this year and Yakupov won't be back....aside from Reid Boucher, Connor Murphy and possibly overager Charles Sarault, there is little experienced talent left around Gally and not enough youth/picks to clearly go for a title it seems.

In short, a trade to an OHL contender (how about London?) seems possible if it's clear he's not back as a 19 year old since he'll be ready for the show. The only issues are Gally Sr is an assistant coach on the team and the family lives in Sarnia, which makes you think Gally would almost have a NTC basically...

His smile kills me. I never seen someone smile so much

We have a few guys that could play at the WJC.

Locks: Galchenyuk (USA), Collberg (Sweden).

Other possible candidates: Hudon, Nystrom, Thrower, Vail, Sullivan, Dietz.

Is Pribyl eligible?

And here's the first step to play in the WJC at least for one of our possibilities...

Nystrom invited to a tournament in preparation for the WJC.

Could for sure be a 4th liner.

Tough competition ahead though. 20 forwards and a lot of big names.

That's what I'm hoping happens. Although the bigger thing is that he just gets a full year in. The expectations are going to be almost over whelming for him, he's expected to dominate the OHL at this point.

I see it as a good opportunity for him to shake off some of the lingering "riding Yakupov's coat tails" arguments.

I'm fairly certain if he gets moved, it'll be a deadline thing. But most likely he plays a year in Sarnia to prove his value as a 3rd overall pick.

@EasyMac_16 The word 'perfection' is constantly being redefined as Brendan Gallagher raises the bar higher and higher.


Holland seems like a pretty funny dude.

I'm a huge fan of both Holland and Ellis mainly because of twitter.
