Bold statement at this point.

I know nothing about the guy. I have that feeling the Isles took him where they did for the same reason they took guys like Anders Nilsson where they did.

Don't know what the reason is myself, but I think it has little to do with trying to show the hockey world how smart they are, at least from the 3rd round on up. I have stated more than enough times what I felt about the de Haan pick and what they went through to make that happen. That gave me that "we know it better than the rest of the league" feeling.

Will be interesting to see where Leduc's at when he's 21/22/23, but like you, I'm not expecting much at this point.

The same smart people who took Jason Clark in the 3rd round and Cody Rosen.
Jankowski was still a vital element of that drafting staff. I'm sure most all of us continue to think that his immediate dismissal with little ado had much to do with the latter three picks in that draft, if not the Rosen situation in and of itself.

As for Clark, I thought he looked pretty good in the prospect camp scrimmages this summer, but that said, he's been an absolute nothing of a pick. That the team signed him had me wondering if they weren't on to something for some reason? That he however has only suited up for one game with BPort and none in the ECHL really has to make one wonder what the heck is going on there.

What's so bitter for me personally is that Germany had a couple of kids that summer who I was extremely high on as mid-rounders with real possibilities and they were still on the board. When Clark was taken, I was crossing my fingers that the Isles would take Tom Kuhnhackl (who some felt would go top 60). When Dehart was taken, I was literally praying that we'd grab a guy by the name of Konrad Abeltshauser. These two are definitely the two German boys I've felt the best about since Erhoff and Seidenberg went as mid-rounders back in the day (and Tobias Rieder as well as Leon Draisaitl are worth keeping an eye on in the future as well).

That said, there's still no telling if either of those two will be an NHLer, much less an effective one, and I didn't know anything about Clark and Dehart, so I won't pretend to have been questioning Isles brass after that draft. Nonetheless, I did have a feeling that we had missed out on a couple of kids who were as good a shot as any at that stage in the draft.

82nd overall, 3rd round. I think that was Phoenix's pick.

Yep, had caught that myself and tried to quickly correct my post before anyone would catch it.

REMINDER: This is the Bridgeport Thread. Any further discussion about Leduc or other prospects should be discussed in the Prospects Thread. Let's get back on topic. Thanks.

Anyone know if the Port Jefferson ferry has a deal with the SoundTigers? Is there a way to package BST tickets and walkon ferry tickets?

Yes. Call PortJeff Ferry. If you are an Isles season ticket holder, call a rep first and explain you are dying to see hockey and can take the portjeff ferry to bport; you may get hooked up if you play your cards right. I am not saying they will cover everything but they might accomodate you somewhat/somehow.

A defenseman, he was -9 in 4 playoff games. That's almost impossible to do, even if you tried to do it on purpose. An alleged 6'5" fighter, who went to the Dale Rolfe school of fighting, basically gets his head handed to him every fight.

Leduc was the 209 rated skater in Central Scouting, and lets not forget, CS does not include European skaters in their list, they are rated separately. So Leduc would probably be rated in the 300 range. We took him 104th overall. I wouldn't call this taking a home-run swing, I'd call this meekingly flailing at strike 3, or striking out looking. A home-run swing would have been someone like Gemel Smith or Anton Zlobin, at least you have a chance at possibly connecting.

Leduc will never make it to the NHL, he was a dumb pick by people who were trying to show the NHL how smart they were. The same smart people who took Jason Clark in the 3rd round and Cody Rosen.
This is a good post and certainly based in fact. I don't think Leduc is going to amount to anything, but I do remember a similar, or worse, uproar when in the 3rd round of the 1996 draft the Isles some 6'9 giant from Solvakia who's most notable visual scouting report was literally a video tape he made of himself taking slap shots....

Let's just see how things turn out, I mean if you had told me Frans Nielson or Andrew McDonald would be as good as they are now even two years after they were drafted I would have told you to stop watching hockey.

I saw the pic of Kabanov's arm, now that he has the cast off.
Anyone know when he is scheduled, to come back into the lineup ?

For some reason, it seems that there is never a Bridgeport stream. You can go to AHL Live and listen to it on the radio if you want.

I am debating whether to go ahead and buy the AHL Live package for $199 right now. I just need somebody to convince me to do it... can anybody comment on the quality of the video streams from this service??

I'll refer you to this thread about the stream quality.
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1270975
I'm not going to be buying it even if the lockout takes the whole season. Just doesn't seem worth the money given the quality. Although, if you like to watch games and AHL is your thing, then it might be worth it for you.

Thx for the quick reply. I didn't realize you could purchase one game, so that's what I did - seven bucks. I'll be able to make my own assessment after tonight.

Just came to post this. Watching the feed and listening to the radio off of AHL Live and it is pretty close.

I completely agree. 'Been looking forward to his joining the main team since his draft. He could be the most important addition out of Strome, Nino, etc.

It wanted to download "ilivid" to stream the game.

My virusware reports Ilivid is a significant threat to your computer.

Just saying.

I didn't have anything with "ilivid" at all. Are you sure it wasn't an advertisement? For the first 20 secs an ad should pop up.

Shouldn't be a problem at all. I've never had an issue with buying tickets right at the box office.

The higher up sections are still very good. You can see pretty much everything. It's not a very tall arena.

I go all the time. I buy the cheapest seats in the house and then I go and sit in the first few rows at the first TV timeout. I've never had an issue.
