If Sproul keeps this play up he'll have the highest GPG for an OHL defenseman in the past 10 years, and that's as far back as I could look so it could be longer

You can't teach his offensive skill though, he's simply on another level. The thing is he's always been viewed as raw and he keeps improving. The exciting thing is he's obviously not slowing down at all and is only getting better.

Can't credit such a pick with luck, it was simply the right decision.
wannstrom over jarnkrok seems very strange.

jarmo kekalainen, STL's top scout, and one of the best in the world, left STL in 2010 to become head of jokerit, but he may have been responsible for picking wannstrom over jarnkrok.

Speaking of Järnkrok... Now that his team is doing quite bad, could you see him coming over to GR to finish the season when Brynäs drop out? Assuming GR have a somewhat long playoff run.
I hope so. I don't like the idea of him sitting out(with a few exhibition games) over 1½ month waiting for the World Champs, assuming he makes it. He would be a great dark horse pickup late in the season for the Griffins.

Yeah, it would be fantastic if he could come over to NA as soon as his season ends.

the Griffins could be scary good if they end up adding Jarnkrok and Sproul(assuming his team loses early in the Playoffs) to the team for a Playoff run

I imagine(well hope anyways) at least one of Tatar/Nyquist will be off the team full time by then but wow

He's pretty much on par with Bobby Sanguinetti who had 29 in 61 a couple years back. Ryan Ellis 24 in 58. The high water mark must be Bryan Berard 31 in 56 in 95/96.

Nice, haven't seen any recent updates for Greece Lightning so thanks for posting. Good showing by Paterson. I don't know what to make of Frk just yet, I like him better than Tvrdon but I haven't paid close enough attention to him up to this point.

Frk isn't getting much attention these days but his production has turned around after his slow start. I won't know what to make of him until he is out of the Q.

Unlike Sproul, I don't think Ouellet is a player you judge off of points.

Exactly. We all know he has offensive talent but there's so much more to his game as well.

Also, even though Frk is putting up a lot of points (59 in 39), it's hard to get a realistic picture of him since he's playing with MacKinnon and Drouin.

Then again I think Athanasiou's numbers are quite good, since I don't think he's been playing 1st line minutes all the time.

I think so, yes.

Even Moose fans agree that he should go pro.

Not just scout but assistant GM and director of amateur scouting.

I think it's more the case that he doesn't need to score to be a good player, but the fact that he can makes him even better.
