it doesnt really matter whether it was day or not, i think most are "seething" over losing a top 5 pick, the punishment doesnt fit the crime..
time to move on instead of dwelling over whats been done..

Moore is that small. The OHL draft guide was wrong.

Spits feel that all three players taken so far could play on the team this year. An "it's up to them" mentality.

Hayden Verbeek, Ryan's younger brother, taken by SSM. I would have figured Spits would have had dibs - Rychel must not have wanted him in the 4th.

Verbeek was rated 4th to 6th rd by most,even higher by OHL,not a good spot for
him to crack lineup,while they lose some forwards they have alot,plus Speers from this
year

So he'll play 20% of the games, with the Spits saying he's not physically ready and needs to add weight? He'll likely cost us a gold education package as well.

He's smaller than Webermin was - and that's all we heard about Grant and why he wasn't ever playing.

The team seems to really like him, though.

They said the same thing about Webermin.

You hit the nail on the head. If we don't get the Mem Cup 2-3 D-Men are long gone as Ernie Harwell used to say.

So for the 1st 6 rds the Spits take 3 Forwards,3 D and 1 Goalie,I would have preferred
4,2 and 1 but going by taking the best player available theory I am good with what
has occurred so far as they try to improve on all areas

sence the lockout happened i believe the NHL Draft is June 30, so that means the import draft is somewhere between July 5-7 as that the first weekend after the NHL Draft

Thanks.

How does that work with current imports on the team? Decision time at camp?

i.e. Can you carry more than 2 imports until then?

Ryan Moore - Belle Tire

Belle Tire F Ryan Moore was selected 35th overall by the Windsor Spitfires. Moore had signed a tender with Youngstown of the USHL. The tender process is pretty new, so I'm not sure exactly how iron-clad it is. If Moore can get out of it, and he signs with Windsor after May 6th, that's a double whammy for Youngstown of losing Moore, and losing the first round Future's pick they gave up in exchange for using a tender.

You can only have two unless one was a first round NHL selection or one will be heading into OA season IIRC. Don't quote me on the latter exception though.
