It's only counted for whistles, so both coming on and coming off on the fly does not impact this at all. The quality of competition calculation, though, I believe is for every second on the ice.

Oh, for sure. He's a rookie and we can look at the reasons for why he's starting so much in an easier position but the easy conclusion here is that Zibanejad's ice-time is played in a much, much easier situation and I wanted to point that out since it seemed someone wanted to declare victory in this tired "Couturier vs. Ziba" debate that's been going on ever since draft day.

Which are the prospects that could be available to Binghamton once their year is done? Ceci and Noesen I think. Puempel? Sdao? others?

All prospects playing in the CHL whose team is eliminated.

Couturier is a 3rd line shutdown center so far in his career (which is good), he could become better and end up as a 2nd line center. That's his upside IMO.

Zibanejad is not as a far bet, but his upside is clearly higher

Anyway, so far, Couturier is doing what Chris Kelly has done as a rookie/sophomore. Yes, he was older but the point is we don't need to hype Couts more than his draft position already did.

Which is why the debate and the conclusions made in absolute a few months ago were a bit retarded

I'll never understand what's the pressing urge to draw career conclusions a few months after a prospect is drafted... Only on HF?

Turris, Smith, and O'Brien are all 5 - 10% better than Z-bad at faceoffs.
Schenn is also 41.9% and Talbot is only 4% better, and all are considerably below 50%.

So there!

Is it bad that I want Owen Sound to make an early exit so Ceci can come play in the AHL?

Wasn't there that huge college kid the Senators and everyone else were suppose to be chasing? Don't think he signed anywhere yet, but all these injuries makes Ottawa a great place to try to step right into the NHL.

I'm guessing you're talking about Andrej Sustr. Agreed, having a shot at playing in the NHL right away should be enticing.

Yeah that is the one I just didn't feel like attempting to butcher his name and was too lazy to look it up. Should also help that Ottawa has proven with Da Costa and Butler that they will at least give college guys a shot in the NHL. Plus maybe Milo can go sweet talk him in Czech.

I mean more along the lines of our own college guys. Sdao, or even juniors like Aneloski or Costello?

One guy that had a good under the radar season was Jeff Costello for Notre Dame. 5th rounder in 2009 (great ****ing draft for the Sens!) increased his production from 12pts in 28 games in his sophomore year to 26pts (9 goals) in 28 games this junior season.

I saw him play one game this year and mostly just noticed him for his size. 6'0 but about 210-220lbs, uses it in front of the net. His production increase may be systemic in that he's surrounded by a lot of talent at Notre Dame with Tynan, Russo, Lee, Rust, Lucia, Johns and Taker. He was 3rd on the team in scoring, 2nd in PPG only to Lee who's a pretty highly regarded powerforward prospect.

Hoping we sign his teammate in Taker. He sounds like another Tanev.

Wouldn't that be Dekeyser? Sustr is one of the top guys out there but I am pretty sure Dekeyser is the NCAA free agent that is the most highly touted.

Costello is a real solid prospect and having a great year. I am a little surprised that he doesn't get more hype around here. He could be a really solid bottom six guy down the line. All scouting reports indicate that he is a pretty chippy player, maybe he is another Chris Kuntiz.

I think Sustr is held in a higher regard amongst the crowd who (unfairly) see Zdeno-Chara-lite in this kid. Sustr doesn't play even close to as hard as Chara does, though. Projecting him to be anything like Chara is setting him up to fail.

Dekeyser is the better prospect in my eyes, IMO.

That's what I thought. Dekeyser is the more highly touted prospect. Sustr seems like a bit of a project with some good potential. I guess the issue is whether Sustr's potential is to be another Zdeno Chara or another Boris Valibik.

But it sounds like it is a pretty sure bet that Dekeyser signs with Detroit. So Sustr may be a good target.

Valibik was molasses and it made his height useless. I heard Sustr has good wheels.

From what I've heard, he has decent wheels, but doesn't use his size in almost any capacity whatsoever. He's tall, but he's like the NHL version of Shawn Bradley out there:

Lmao, true but he's shown glimpses. Also, he has a very strong and active stick which separates plays like it's nothing. I think that's what is most intruiging about him. A big defender who can play hockey well and can still add a dimension that could become his biggest strength.
