Id say thats really unfair to label this kid as that. I remember a certain someone named Tavares who was labeled as slow during the draft....he's certainly changed that around. It sometimes takes a big body some time to develop the strength AND coordination needed to be quicker. He has an NHL pedigree and he'll be a good player for us.

Having said that, i was probably the first one on the Jacob Trouba bandwagon and I see he's having a pretty monster year....but it's far too early to project their ultimate value.

I don't see nasty play as idiotic. BillD summed it up nicely. It may take a while to develop him properly, but having a mean sob on your team has its uses.

And if that POS Cooke can tone things down enough to play somewhat normally, I believe any player can learn to do it as well.

...It's always easier to get a guy with a mean streak to play within himself than it is to get sissy to play with some more fire...I have ZERO problem with the way he's playing.

Pedan is ging to be a good defensman at the pro level...Might not ever be an all star but will contribute in all areas and be a solid player....

Can somebody tell me what happened to Kirill Petrov? I remember hearing his name alot a few years ago, now I can't find anything about him coming to play for the Islanders, does anybody know anything about his situation?

Petrov keeps signing extensions with his KHL team. I think it's still issues about his mother's health. Isles should fly her to the US to get top notch medical assistance so KP can play in the NHL.

Trouba is a great prospect, but a major flight risk. I'd say the chance he uses the loophole is around 90 percent. JMHO

I never thought about that. That would be disgusting.



Yet, I hope he comes here.

I pretty sure he can't use the loophole, because he is in college this year. If he was in the ushl this season he would be eligible.

I would like to see Griff play here next year, at 6'4 he has the size and current frame to play in the NHL. Cam Fowler, Victor Hedman and Adam Laarson were drafted and immediately began to contribute to there clubs.

On a side note He did get a 4 game suspension in the WJC earlier this month.

loophole is a misnomar. After his senior year he can choose to sign with his drafting team or become a FA.

Come on guys, let's stop with the Trouba talk. The kid looks like a stud d-man prospect for Winnipeg and he isn't going anywhere. He could sign after his Sophomore season with the way he's been playing. I don't see another Wheeler/Gregoire/Kessel situation even fathomable with this kid.

Well, he signed that one two-year extension since having been drafted.

But yep, it's looking like he won't be in any rush to come over as long as his mother is in the situation she's in.

Due to the lockout, I've been able to watch a number of his games this season and I think he's ready. He could step right in and do everything i.e. Ullstrom is doing, if not more.

So you think Petrov can average a point a game in the NHL on the 3rd line like Ullstrom almost is (4 points in 5 games), yet he can only average half a point a game in the KHL ? Yes I agree that Petrov MAY have a higher offensive potential then Ullstrom, but, Ullstrom is already proving it in the NHL.

Why not? He's doing it playing with Aucoin and McDonald. Once he gets bumped up into the top-six(which I'm pretty sure will happen) his numbers could get even better.

If Okposo eventually gets dropped from that top line, Ullstrom has to be the top candidate at this point to get his spot. I wouldn't be surprised if Ullstrom blows up when that happens(ala Moulson, Parenteau). The kid is a real deal prospect. He's proving that now.

Pedan did not play for Guelph Sunday, probably another suspension.
