I wonder who is his agent/mentor, if any! According to him, he didn't get much play time at Cornell, but even if that's true, in hindsight, he should of stayed in order to finish his college. Now, no college, no Q team and he's 20.....

He'll probably play Junior AAA and then what????

Why he didn't flourish, will remain a mistery..... But let us not point fingers towards the USHL or US colleges, because they do produce NHLers and the CHL does hinder emerging talents as well.

If Brisson is a true OFD then he failed cause the USHL is defence oriented...

Agree, hence, someone didn't advise him properly when he was making his decision when he was 17.....

But we'll never know for sure, if he would of flourished in the Q as well. Although the Q "should" of been his priority.

The reason I say this, it's because Matheson is also a true offensive-D. He had problems adjusting at first in the USHL, then, found his guear and still showed good enough skill sets to be picked in the 1st round.

The USHL is improving very fast. It wasn't the same in 2008-09 than it was in 2011-12.

When he was 16-17, his advisor was Enrico Ciccone. Now I don't know.

Matheson wants to improve his defensive game, and be a complete player, hence his choice to play NCAA... Also his family is against the Q as a league.

I don't know much about Ciccone, I know who he is, but I have no clue on his phylosophy and his way of dealing with young athletes......

So we do agree the USHL is good for some players and not for others.....

This league is on the rise as you're saying. They produced more players in the 1st round of the 2012 draft than the Q. But that could be a cycle as well.....

The USNTDP helps that's for sure.

I agree, but I also consider Matheson and Matteau to he Q 1sts as they would have very likely gone in the first had they played here.

Three imports

What's the deal with having 3 imports on the roster (Kucherov / Grigorenko / Sørensen)? Is that allowed? I was under the impression only two import players are allowed. Can they alternate Grigorenko and Sørensen so they'll only have 2 imports on the game sheet? Even if allowed, that seems like quite a waste.

Is it possible they are showcasing Sørensen (going by Danish spelling as I am Danish myself) to demonstrate he has recovered fully from his injury and then have every intention of trading him early in the season?

They will keep Sorensen until Kucherov returns (out until November I think) or if Grigorenko makes the Sabres (if no lockout) then will probably trade him.

Basically Sorensen is their asset for a big time D man...

He's on his way out, it's a matter of time...

It's a new rule of the CHL this year.

If a team have an Euro player drafted in first round NHL in 2012, this team can have 3 Euro on his roster until 14 days after the return of the Euro drafted after NHL camp at the end of the lock out.

I saw him at the U18 camp, not at any pre-games. He looked big, stronger, faster and better than last year. From the U18 camp only, I ranked him 3rd skater, behind Drouin and Mackinnon. He was the White team's best skater.

Some have reported that he didn't do as expected at the U18 tournament and I haven't seen him play in the 2 pre-season games.

In the Qc La Presse newspaper, they reported Roy being very happy of his 23 lbs gain.

I will watch the Rempart's games over the Internet this weekend and will be in Qc next weekend, I'll post more info.

The French newspapers in Qc, reports that several teams have called Roy to get more info on the cost of dealing one of his imports. It seems from the articles, that these teams were not just asking for Sorensen, but for the other 2 as well. Roy, did not comment.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE Rempart's fan, but I find it a little early to rank these teams, when the puck has not even dropped in the first weekend of games. I'm glad they are 1st. IMO, here are some of the questions I have pertaining to my beloved team:

- Kucherov isn't playing until end of Oct-Nov
- Grigs, Fever, Brass, Kutcherov & Culkin will leave for a good stretch, if the lockout ends early (for example in the next 3 weeks) That's a lot of players leaving for rookie camps.
- Grigs, Kucherov, Sorensen (if he's still in Qc) and Rioux will leave at Christmas to play in the WJC. Rioux with France at the D2 level. Potential to see Erne and Duclair participate at their respective country's camps as well.
- Etch will be out for 6 months
- Brassard is unproven as a #1 in the Q, especially under harsh pressure. He bodged the game against the Seadogs on National TV last season. He crumbled under pressure at the Telus Cup in the semi-final game with the Lions the year before that.
- They have so many Ds in the wing who'll play musical chair for the 4-5-6 spots, no stability
- Sorensen is presently tagged as fragile, can he sustain 10,20, 50 games in a row?

IMO, you won't have regular players on this team in any given month prior to the X-mass break. And we're talking quality players here.

I'm not too familiar with the other team's issues, but it would be very difficult to match if not surpass these points.

IMO, they could of waited, at least after the first weekend to rank teams.....

1 Quebec Remparts
2 Edmonton Oil Kings
3 London Knights
4 Portland Winterhawks
5 Kitchener Rangers
6 Halifax Mooseheads
7 Plymouth Whalers
8 Blainville-Boisbriand Armada
9 Saskatoon Blades
10 Oshawa Generals

I see where the Remparts signed D-man Stephen Midensky who last year played with the Kitchener Rangers.
