The most random set of names ever (I don't know crap about them, but Ristolainen, Hagg, Morrissey, Darnell, Poluck, Zadorov) . Sorry, just had to say something.

Seth Jones :
Seth has the rare combination of skill, size and power which allows him to impact the game in multiple ways and in just about any conceivable situation. He is blessed with great athletic ability and he moves about the ice with ease and with the ability to use his skating to his advantage either defensively or offensively. He understands how to use his advantages to gain the upper hand and whether it is a skill situation or a physical situation, he's able to do it a forceful manner. He is an excellent passer who remains composed under pressure and he has a heavy and hard shot which poses considerable challenges for goalies. He takes charge on the ice in some way and the word that comes to mind when you watch him is 'unique.' A cornerstone defenceman. Comparable Style: Rob Blake

Rasmus Ristolainen
Rasmus is a bold player who takes the initiative. He plays with a confidence in his game and that allows him to make an impact. He has very good offensive skills with an excellent shot and he jumps into the attack and even initiates the attack if he feels it's necessary. He will play physical and is a big man who if he makes contact, you are fully aware as an opponent. He doesn't get rattled and his composure should not be mistaken for any type of 'laissez-faire' attitude because when the game becomes challenging and the moments important, he is ready, willing and capable of taking a leading role to make a positive difference. A player who is more than capable of being a top defenceman. Comparable Style: Brent Burns

Robert Hagg
Hägg is a rock-solid two-way defenseman who excels at both ends of the ice. At 6'2", 201-pounds, he can rush the puck and run a powerplay, yet he can also be a physical force going backwards with a strong stick and smarts.

Josh Morrissey
“I’m a two-way player,” he said. “I skate with the puck well and I see the ice. My first pass is really strong and I can also jump into the play. I like to see myself as a quarterback when I have the puck out there.”

Darnell Nurse
“My strengths are my skating, my work ethic and obviously I’m trying to win all my battles,” he said. “And with being big, you don’t get a lot of 6-foot-3 guys who can skate like they’re 5-foot-8 and win most of their battles. Has been compared to Pronger

Ryan Poluck
An elite two-way defenseman, Pulock has high-end abilities both offensively and defensively. A very smooth skater who can carry the puck effectively, Pulock can lead the rush and score, but is a smart and steady player who gets the job done effectively in his own zone.

Nikita Zadorov
Clocking in at six-foot-four and 200 lbs, Zadorov is the new gem in London. A hulking two-way defender with good mobility and strength, he dominates puck battles. While quite raw, Zadarov has good upside. He reads plays well and makes good outlet passes on the offensive side of the puck.

Damn, there are some huge, built D-men this coming draft. And it seems they've mostly filled out too.

Just tried listening to a couple radio broadcasts of OHL games and the radio stations were playing music instead of the games.

I tried the Niagara and Brampton game and it had music playing, then I tried the Oshawa and Sudbury game and that one had music playing too.

Max Domi may be pretty small, but he is going to be a great player!

Seth Griffith scores a hat trick!

45 goals last year for him and already 3 this year and he's not even in the top 20 for draft picks yet

edit : He was drafted last year

That means the Flyers will skip over Zedorov after he falls right into their lap and pick a center, just like they did with Maatta.

Alexander Semin will play for his childhood team Sokol Krasnojarsk in the VHL (tier II in Russia).

Sean Bergenheim signed up for IFK Helsinki, the fiercest rivals to his childhood team Jokerit.

Surely because he's lazy and doesn't want to exert himself in the KHL

I've pretty much stopped posting there for the most part..

Since about august there's been an influx of total idiots who seem to think they know how stuff should be run based on them taking an economics 101 course..

It's frustrating seeing the same questions asked and answered every single day as well.

Awesomeness.

If you watch Gretzky's bio, he credits Clarke with getting him started on setting up and playing behind the net. At 14 his coach told him to watch Clarke, and how he plays in the corners and behind the net. And with that, Gretzky started working in his office. Pretty cool.

RT @D_LEED: Voracek out only a week with a knee injury. That panic was fun while it lasted. #Flyers

RT @tpanotchCSN: Source says Voracek is telling teammates in Europe his knee injury is worse than what his agents feels it is.
