If quine was a second rounder, people would pay more attention to him. But since he was a later pick, he doesnt get much credit, it seems.

Quine is ahead of at least Bodin, Coetzee, Fournier, Hudon, Marshall, Nestrasil, Pare, Pearce, and Raedeke in term of trying to keep in the system. The wings already have to many forwards signed, there will be guys traded from what they have now so those contract numbers will be reduced by probably 3 or 4. They have 6 NHL right wingers, 5 centers and 5 left wingers.

I dont think Quine is some awesome prospect or anything but the chances he'll get a contract are much higher then not. Hes put up pretty damn good numbers, has high end speed which the wings lack, and hes solid defensively.
The problem is that Nestrasil, even if you're right --- and I don't think you are, and Fournier, are already under contract.
Nestrasil has improved quite a bit this year and is close to a point-per-game
While you might think it's no big deal that he's 6'2, we don't have a ton of 6'2 forwards with skill.
We're not going to cancel is contract.

Calling Quine "solid" defensively is absurd.

I believe all but 2 or maybe 3 draft picks from Quine's draft year earn a contract. If you consider that "hates everything," you're weird.

Hes not even point per game in the ECHL and its not like hes a rookie. He's 6'2 but doesnt play with any real size or edge. Sheahan Andersson, Aubry, Jurco, Tvrdon and even Parkes are big bodied guys that have established themselves in the AHL besides Tvrdon. There isnt a lack of big guys, theres a lack of big guys that play big but Nestrasil doesnt.

Quines skating on the other hand is probably only matched by Ferraro and maybe Tatar although I think hes more agile then fast. 5'11, 190 isnt tiny anymore either for Quine, its not big by any means but its solid weight given his height.

Saying Quine isnt solid defensively shows you dont know jack about him. Hes a solid 2 way player and was used as a shutdown player for team Canada at the u18s. Do poor defensive players get put in that role or get called solid two way players by scouts if they arent solid defensively?

Or wait, you read his plus minus right so you know his defensive game better then people who have watched him?

For a guy who has never seen him play, your comment about Quine does not matter.

Ok, but I would say you march to the beat of your own drummer. There's not many people you agree with. Not a bad thing, its good to have a different opinion around here.

OMG, big guy who can skate, but do nothing else! Andrej Nestrasil \o/ Thank you lord about him, he saves the organization from lazy johanfranzens! Hallelujah! Merry Chistmas to all you trolls in here. We need to end this freaking lockout and get something real to discuss and stop this apocalyptic moronism and idiotism. Please. Enough is enough.

Dude. Check out that plus/minus. EVERY YEAR.

When a guy scores a point-per-game and is THAT FAR into the minuses, it doesn't say much about him as a two-way player

How does Andrew Yogan be a plus player while Quine is -19?
Austin Watson last year was -1 in 32 games while Quine was -19

At some point, it's ridiculous to call him a good defensive forward because he played in a shutdown role in a tournament 3 years ago.

Yeah, I for one have not been pumping Quine up at all as a prospect. Now with that being said I can definitely see him earning a contract. He's got speed and goal-scoring capability, two characteristics our prospect pool isn't exactly bursting at the seams with. I think our new age power forward pecking order puts Nestrasil pretty far down the list and as a result he's a guy who I can see being on the outside looking in - and I have always been a Nestrasil fan. He simply hasn't developed while guys like Jurco, Sheahan, Frk and Tvrdon are all guys the organization saw something in and still have some developing to do. With Nestrasil he's just never owned a spot in the AHL. He may get another chance if the lockout doesn't wipe out the NHL season but I don't see him pushing his way up the prospect rankings anytime soon.

Wings only have 34 contracts signed for next season. If we look ahead another year we're down to a mere 15 signed players. There's re-signings to be made, but still well enough flexibility to make a decision on Quine solely based on his own abilities. Wings have a lot of so-so guys signed that will be replaced by new prospects in the next couple of years. I'm mainly thinking of Parkes, Fournier, Raedeke, Coetzee and Nestrasil. And then there's another handful of guys totally up in the air in terms of getting a new contract aswell, probably leaning towards not getting one at this point. Plus free agents on the big club, of course.

Ultimately, signing these players give you a good and competitive farm team. If Quine can push for a top6 AHL spot, he's an asset. You don't have 50 NHL players signed. Not even 35.

Is Quine a center or a winger at Peterborough?

A center, at least when I've been looking at some of their highlights.

He can play both, he is a C/LW. He does mostly play center, but it is nice to know he is comfortable out on the wing also.

You know what would be really nice is if he is good at draws. Have seen him but I don't honestly remember if he is good or bad in this area. Anybody else know?

Czech vs. Sweden for those interested in seeing Frk or Calle's cousin.

Frk was alright, not spectacular not bad. I think Ouellet was very good as long as the game was alive(after that I didn't pay much attention), decision making stands out.

Frk was really slow, kind of reminded me of a slightly bigger Pulkkinen.

Ouellett scores goal at world
quote Spizzirri (hockeybuzz)
"In Canada's opening contest today, Ouellet opened the scoring for Canada in their 9-3 victory over Germany scoring on a 1st period power-play when his pass intended for Ty Rattie at the side of the German goal deflected off a German defender and into the net."

Ouellet was good imo.. that goal was all on McNeill. Canada needs to got down on penalties it is going to cost them at bigger games.

Frk wasn't bad but didn't get much done. Bigger rink doesn't suit his skating.

Brock with he's speculation on OHL trade DL.

Has this to say about Quine.

Quote:
Alan Quine
Battled mono at the beginning of the year, but has been pretty good since returning. I think he's certainly capable of more too, if he's on a team in a winning environment. Somewhere which would push him to be a bit more aggressive with and without the puck. He's certainly very talented offensively. In particular, his goal scoring ability is underrated. He's a natural center, but I actually think he could play the wing too. I think the two best fits for Quine would be in Belleville and Plymouth. Both could use a player like Quine to inject some more offense into their attack and I think he'd gel well with the players already in those spots.
Prediction: I think Quine goes to Belleville. On the big ice, he'd have more room to operate and the Bulls have a bevy of bigger forwards who could help to create some room for him. The return ends up being a couple of high end picks (2nd and 3rd).

Yes. He played on the 26th and had a team high icetime 21:46, so apparently he's recovered from it quite well.

Good MLive article on our Euro prospects: http://www.mlive.com/redwings/index....ospects_c.html

Few points:
- Järnkrok & Pulkkinen coming over next season and if not ready for the NHL will play in GR.
- Bäckman will play in Linköping next season and is "2-3 years away from being ready (for the NHL) if he continues to develop at this pace".
- On Marchenko: "We'll make a decision on bringing him over, if he wants to come. Good chance for next year. A lot will depend on him.'' "He must decide whether to come to North America, where he would be playing in Grand Rapids, or remain in the KHL, where he'd earn more money."

No roster spots available --> they go down no matter what.

And that's a good thing.

Only expansion draft could change the situation, where we lose two players for new Seattle and Quebec teams. Could that be the reason why Holland hoarded so many UFA forwards?

Through 2 games so far Ouellet is tied with Rielly for the defense lad in points for Canada. Both have a goal and 2 assists. I havent watched the game today yet but its on TSN at 12, got a message from a buddy saying he had a pretty sick assist against slovakia though

That puts him in the defensive scoring lead for the tourny I believe

Don't agree that Backman is a finesse player with no physical play. Even if he's not a hitter he has a very aggressive play the body style along the boards. He's using his size well in that respect and will only get more effective with weight.

Wings are also taking this U22 thing to play in AHL very literally.
