And he was captain of the U18 team last year. Leadership always helps.

@ Minnesota- They are both eligible. I didn't think Siemens was, but he is. I'd rather have Siemens over Ouellet or Harrington.

Siemens is having a terrible year (7pts in 22gp, -9). He plays a well-rounded game, though.

I'd probably choose Ouellet or Pouliot over him at the moment.

I'm guessing they'd take Oullet over Pouliot just for experience.

Harrington is a sure thing and most think he will be on the shutdown pair with Ouellet. I think it will be something like this-

Rielly-Hamilton
Ouellet-Harrington
Reinhart-Murphy

Dumba/Siemens/Ceci in that order for 7th D

Someone may have mentioned it here but Hockey Canada loves Dumba and I think that will get him on the squad.

I'd love to have Dumba even as a 6th D-man just for his energy, physical play, and perhaps on the PP.

Scored a goal in his last game, a 5-4 loss to Brandon. Interesting to know he has yet to have a negative game since Sutter has taken over the coaching reigns.

Sutter has most definitely fixed his team now that he's doing both jobs.

According to my sources (Red Deer fans)...

Dumba has been playing like he hasn't really cared all season long. A guy just going through the motions and waiting for the next step. He's been a little better since he came back from Minnesota but prior to that he has been disconnected. Just thought I'd toss that out.

You hate to see that out of a kid. But based on the reports I read about him in camp/practice he's damn near ready for the NHL. I wish the Wild could have put him in Houston to give him better competition.

from what i've heard Dumba is trying to be more "responsible" and naturally that's going to look lazy to people who are used to seeing him flying all over the ice willy-nilly 35 minutes a game. I'm sure "decision making" was on his list of things to work since draft. I haven't watched him so I don't know if this is the case, but it would make sense.

I asked over in the Prospects thread if anyone can confirm or deny. That sounds extremely out of character for him.

I've only been able to watch about 10 Red Deer games, but this is pretty much it. Anyone is going to look like they aren't trying when they are put in a different role. He has looked solid on the defensive end and has been beat very little.

Take a look at his game last night: 1 G, 1 A, +3, and first star of the game.

2 games ago. 2 A.

Hes riding a 4 point streak. If we are going to be getting defensively responsible play with the ability to put up offensive numbers, we'll just have to suffer through that.

Think how much his confidence took a hit in the last month and a half. Cut from the WJC team. Seems to be on the cusp of playing with the NHL, then scratched and sent back to Red Deer. Can you really blame him?

@Danccchan kinda less is more. He's still an elite prospect. One game where he opened up and played "classic" I loved him

@ShraderD @Danccchan he isn't the same prospect as he was last year. Just completely different style and there have been growing pains

Nice. Pretty much what I expected. I'm guessing the bad games were before Sutter.

The average games were before Sutter, the bad ones were at Team Canada's World Junior Camp where he struggled immensly. Was one of the weakest defenseman at camp and I expected him to get cut in the first round of snips.

The good showing was after Christmas, haven't seen him in the New Year

Ah. Red Deer sure has turned the team around, too. Do you have anything more in-depth about his game?

My guess is that Dumba is working on his defensive game as relayed to him by the Wild organization, working on his weaknesses in his own zone and fixing the holes. I don't think his physical play and offensive skills have magically disappered, but rather been put on the back burner for a while while he remakes his defensive play.

i have faith in our drafting staff, and have to believe they would have figured that out about him if it were true.

i'll reserve judgement until he turns pro.
