Lol we have a real goon coming up. This kid doesn't miss mean streak for sure.
I'm actually glad hes going to college so he can focus on his skills. He has to be one of the toughest prospects in the entire league, especially for guys still in junior I would probably stack him up with anyone.
I'm betting hes converted to forward though if he makes the NHL and plays more as a 13th forward. If a guy can skate fast though I dont mind if his hockey skills arent great because he'll be laying out bodies left and right. It also makes more sense to use an enforcer as your 13th forward when hes 6'4, 240 lbs and can skate fast enough to crush guys instead of smaller guys like May and Downey who dont really scare dmen that they come down on.
If Mckee can just become good enough to play 7 mins a game he will scare the **** out of most NHLers
for Paterson, played his way on to the team. Maybe he's backup, but chances are he'll be 3rd string.
As for Sproul, IMO, it's a battle between him and Murphy and Murphy has the inside track with his Kitchener ( I think ) coach being the head coach.
If Murphy makes this team and they don't get gold his coach will never hear the end of that decision. He has been bad in camp and really not great this year either along with a poor summer. There is no reason he is even in the running at this point.
