While I think the Oilers need size in the #2C slot in Domi what you are getting is a guy with skill and hockey sense like Gagner who is a much better skater and a lot harder to deal with physically.
Like I've said in the past, size is great, but strength is the key. I'm really hoping that regardless of what happens with the season/draft that we walk away with an upgrade at center or a high end D.

Watched Darnell Nurse play against the Ice Dogs last night. Lanky kid. Good skater, good passer, and VERY good shot. IMO the kid will be a 2nd pairing d-man who see's a lot of PP time.

Sorry Fourier, I meant to respond to your message from before. I was not able to attend the game Thursday against Kitchener. Something came up last minute. Sounds like from other fans there was a questionable hit from Hamilton on Faksa?

I was a Niagara's 9-4 pounding of Guelph last night. (7 of those 9 goals came from the top line of Ritchie (4), Theoret (2), and Strome (1). When Hamilton, Strome and Ritchie go via lockout ending or trade, it's going to be an ugly season.

With Brock Beukeboom traded, 16 year old 1st round pick Aaron Haydon is getting some time playing on the back end. I really like what I'm seeing out of him. Reminds me of Dougie Hamilton at the same age. (at 6'3" he's not as big as Dougie... but Dougie was only 6'2" when drafted). IMO he wont be as good offensively, but this kid has a mean streak to him. Grew up idolizing footage of Scott Stevens

Brett Ritchie now with 9 goals in 2 games this weekend. Guy is an absolute beast and would love him on the Oilers. Now sits only 2nd in OHL scoring to Ryan Strome.

I was really impressed with him against the Rangers!

Hey guys, Bruins fan coming in peace.

Really disappointed to see that you guys traded Tobias Reider. Excellent kid and one of my favs. I along with many others felt he should have been drafted a lot higher than he was.

If you guys are interested in OHL players for the upcoming draft, just released my top rankings for June.

Good luck !

Carter Verhaeghe will go much higher on that list. He looked solid down the stretch, and was great in the playoffs. I think he is ahead of Freddie Hamilton at the same age (the numbers wont tell the same story, but Freddie had a much bigger role in his first two years due to being on weaker teams).

I agree with where you have DiFruscia though. Kid has so much potential, but lacks the speed to put it all together. He will be on the top line next year with Verhaeghe and Perlini, so if he doesn't get drafted this year, he will get another crack at it to show what he has.
