He was born in 1993.

He's draft eligible.

Another guy the Habs invited to camp this year(damn lock-out) is Brendan Ranford with the Kamloops Blazers. Currently, he's 5th in WHL scoring. Good guy to keep an eye on too.

The Vail Report

was at the Windsor game in Brampton last night

Windsor looked tired and played a bit soft defensively overall

Brady Vail has good size , above average speed , balance and acceleration

he doesnt have Ho Sang speed or the extra gear but Vail played well

for where we drafted him , what a steal in my opinion

looks like a legit top 9 forward , maybe a # 2 center down the road but clearly a player to keep our eye on

was a bit sloppy on one goal against , but looks to be a big solid center who may fill out at 210 pounds in 2-3 years

great pick Timmons and Bergevin

Hoping Vail can turn into what a bunch of us were hoping Chipchura would.

Selected in a round that is a lot more reasonable for players with that kind of ceiling.

I don't remember,he was invited though.With the work Riendeau has done with Mayer and the signing of Cedric Desjardins to join Delmas the Bulldogs have a solid trio of goalies.I did notice Mayer still has a tendency to get back to far in the net,last game.I'm sure Lucas Lawson the video guy will be prepping all of those highlights for the coaches to use before practice today.My goalie of choice out of Dell and Rawlings the two college goalies the Habs had at summer camp two years ago is Rawlings he's still at Northeastern,Quailer's college.He's 2-0 in their first two games with 3 goals against,beating Merrimack and Boston College the Huskies are starting the season hot as is Quailer for the Bulldogs his play has been solid.

Bozon with another goal, 11 goals in 13 games.

He could score 50+.

I think he'll probably end up with 45 or so, and 40 apples. I think he's going to be a very dangerous complimentary player for us. I think a 30-20 guy, eventually.

I'm really trying to be cautiously optimistic with our most recent draft class because it does seem too good to be true but hell if he doesn't look like a 30 goal guy. Maybe not year in year out but he does look skilled enough to produce in the bigs.

Is Lipon next year's Tanner Pearson? I hope that playing with Bozon, we have a good look at him and have the inside track in getting him.

I've never got to see this kid actually play, other than highlights but from everything i keep hearing all I can think of is Michael Ryder. Big boy, not overly physical for his size, average skater, but just a wicked sense for finding the back of the net.

We will surely need scoring wingers. Hope he makes it, he seems very promising!

Most underrated d-man we have in our organization. I'll say something bold as, for me, he's our most surefire NHL'er we have in our organization. Might not be the one who will get there the fastest, but he will be there. I also believe Beaulieu will make it, also believe Tinordi will make it. But Dietz is for me a sure bet all-around. Not saying he has the biggest upside though.

Dietz seems to have the shot, the size and he isn't afraid to drop them. He seems to be the perfect 4, 5, 6 type dman that every team wants.

Yeah, he's similar to a Ryder in terms of effect, but very different in terms of method. Bozon tries desperately to be physical. Against the oil kings he tried to throw at least half a dozen hits. He just bounced off his check, though. Who knows, maybe he goes on the gear this summer and starts laying fools out.

Can't wait to watch Dietz and Thrower live. I'll have to catch a game or two of theirs this season.

Seems to me that he might be our next Rivet. A better skating Rivet.

The team overall hasn't been fairing too well.

Seems to have the leadership ability in him, too. Wouldn't doubt that he becomes a Rivet type guy.

During the couple games I saw him (streaming), he reminded me a similar style to Kevin Bieksa. Booming shot, similar size, physical play. Ideal second pair d-man able to play the point on the PP.
