...and sticking with the collegiate prospects, McCabe did sit out Wisconsin's game tonight. However, Navin had two assists (both primary) and 1 SOG in their 5-0 win over the USA U-18 team. An archive or recap of the game may pop up HERE, as it seems there was a free stream available tonight.

Same highlights as above, but the end with no highlights is chopped off and this way it's embeddable:


I was bored and was ripping the Moose highlights anyways.

Logan Nelson had a great game last night. 2 goals and the shoot out winner.

Grigorenko is looking good.

I love having two guys as talented as Grigorenko and Armia coming up through the ranks. Without those two, what are the odds we would all be pumping Colin Jacobs as a potential 1st liner given his start?

Can a good start get Royals forward Logan Nelson into U.S. world junior team contention? (The Province - Steve Ewen)
Quote:
Nelson was one 11 players cut from the original 45-man roster at the midway point of the camp. Still, he’s hopeful that a strong start to the WHL season will have him in consideration when Housley puts together his final tournament roster for the Ufa, Russia event, which gets going on Boxing Day.

On Saturday, he had two goals, including the tying marker with 35 seconds remaining, and then he scored the lone goal of the shoot-out as Victoria beat the host Tri-City Americans 4-3. Heading into Sunday’s tilt with the Vancouver Giants, Nelson had three goals, five assists, a plus-five rating and 10 minutes in penalties. Last season, he had 23 goals, 39 assists, a minus-two rating and 70 penalty minutes in 71 regular season games with the Royals last season

More important than his numbers, though, is the fact he’s a 6-foot-2, 187-pound guy keen on contact who could play a checking, grinding role if required. On a U.S. or Canadian world junior team, where the majority of candidates are big-time scorers on their club squads, those types can be difficult to find.

As well, he’s comfortable at both centre and wing. He started this season on the wall, but has played mainly the middle since Steven Hodges went down with a lower body injury three games in. Hodges, 18, remains listed day-to-day.

Logan Nelson impressed me in the prospects camp. I think he may be a steal with where we drafted him. The guy had a good mix of size and skill.

It's a compilation of various shifts.

I thought the video was great. It showed Grigorenko's skills and gives me hope that he will one day be our #1 center.

I agree w/ you guys, I really like shift videos as they show us a truer picture of a player than highlight videos which are almost only scoring plays. Isolation vids are even better of course but are obviously not so easy to come by in most cases.

Grigorenko clearly has what will be elite-level playmaking sense and passing. How well he's able to take advantage of that and how the rest of his game comes together at the NHL level will be in question until he plays a couple seasons, but I personally believe he will be the most gifted playmaker we've had since LaFontaine (which isn't saying THAT much... I suppose Briere has been the best playmaker we've had since LaFontaine).

Like LaFontaine, he's also highly capable of scoring himself (LaFontaine himself was as much a goalscorer as a playmaker, outside of that one crazy season w/ Mogilny where his assists nearly doubled his goals the ratio was about even). In no way am I saying he'll be as good as or better than, but he could be the best we've had since and who really knows where the limit is. Seeing what happens when he has an NHL body will be interesting.

The problem is that he isn't alone on the ice. He gives the puck and gets it back. It's called passing.

I could probably do some for Armia and Grigorenko as I have copies of a few of their recent games if people are interested.
Same goes for a few draft eligibles too.

I'll do Armia first since I just watched the Grigorenko game.
It'll be 10/6 vs. TPS, a game in which he was held scoreless.
I didn't watch it initially so I don't really know how he played.

Grigorenko's on the other hand will be 10/5 vs. Victoriaville, a game which has been called his best of the season.
He was engaged right from the first puck drop and was checked by Phillip Danault (2011 1/26 CHI) all night.
The two are also right at the top of the QMJHL and CHL point scoreboards.

It will take a bit of time though, as I have to watch the game and track all of his shifts, convert the game, chop it into clips, and organize all of it.

You can watch Navin play against the US U18 team here.

I'm confused what Armia did to justify slipping 12 spots in the rankings...

Eh, typical "shiny ball" syndrome. The new draftees are going to insert themselves into rankings based on projection and their relatively unknown ceiling. The same things tend to happen when players move off to the AHL -- suddenly they disappear from view and disappear from ranking because they have to go through the growth phase in a new league, perhaps out of sight to many eyes.
