I have only watched a few games, but he has been really good from what I have seen. Responsible on both ends of the ice, winning faceoffs, killing penalties, and still scoring some points. With Rakell coming back, Plymouth might have the best forwards in the OHL and they should make a run in the playoffs. Heard should have been down in the OHL all season IMO, he just wasn't ready for the AHL.

I wouldn't expect him to be like Bolland. First off Meurs is pretty much only a wing now (Plymouth has some great center depth). He has a pretty good snap shot and a decent set of hands on him. Will always skate hard, be fairly physical, and be good on the forecheck for his size. He is also willing to go into the dirty areas to get some goals. Said to have a great work ethic.

On the downside, he is pretty small for the style of game he plays. He will get pushed around a lot until he bulks up. While he has good enough speed and acceleration, I'm not a big fan of his skating (a lot of Avs prospects have had that issue corrected over the years, we do well fixing that problem). Not amazing defensively. While he has some offensive skill, I wouldn't look at it translating at a high level.

His ceiling is probably a good 3rd line RW that can chip in ~12-17 goals while providing good energy. On the low side should be an AHL scoring wing. Solid prospect, but not a high level one.

Have to sign Meurs first. Meurs is a good friend of O'Reilly's.

Heard is getting less ice time because of effin Hartman, he seriously is so hot right now that the sun would require SPF 100 watching him play.

Probably the hottest Avs prospect right now is Blandisi, more ice time on a terrible young team is what he needed.

Even though his girlfriend lives in Vancouver, I assume he gets laid enough. I'd rather see him in the NHL.

I assume it was because they thought that getting top line minutes in the OHL is better for him than the 4th line minutes he was getting in the AHL. Plus he didn't look that great in the AHL so it would have been tough for him to get more minutes.

Yep, Hartman is going nuts right now. I don't know where he will fall in the draft, but he has to be shooting up draft boards right now.

I haven't watched anything from Blandisi since he went to the 67's, I take it he is looking significantly better than he was on Owen Sound?

His talent was already there, just had limited ice time on a deep team.

Hopefully it means he has been cleared to play. I know some people said he had a knee injury but Dater continues to say it's a head injury....

Elliott has had a mediocre season in Lake Erie and he's hurt now, too. He has a head injury. If it's a concussion and it's long-term, that is obviously terrible news for his development.

It's funny to see that article claim it's a head injury...I'm pretty sure I just read something Dater wrote where he said it was a knee injury.

I stand by my original diagnosis, if he's watching Grey's Lobotamy, he's got a concussion.

He said it on twitter a day or two ago.
