Throwing this in here and the draft thread since it's relevant.

Russian press is reporting that 23 years old russian defender Max Goncharov (123-rd pick in 2007 draft) is leaving for KHL team CSKA Moscow after his ELC with Phoenix has come to an end. He spent all of his 3 ELC seasons in AHL.

No surprise. He just wasn't good enough to make our Top 6 and in his 3 years in Phoenix dropped significantly down our depth chart.

Would you care to give us a little information about Currie? I have never seen him play and the only thing I have to go on is stat line, and it doesn't look very good IMO. He only cracked 50 points once and it was in his overage season. His first two seasons in the 'Q' look terrible. Late bloomer?

Late Bloomer for sure, did have 30 goals in the season before his big overage campaign though. All while playing on a very subpar team.
Real hardworking, gritty guy who can play in any role and not be a liability on the ice. one of the smoothest skaters around which is odd because he is a forward. Won't get beat on effort and also loves the pressure situations and being the go to guy.

Really expecting him to at least land an AHL job sooner than later. Was signed to play ECHL before his Overage year but chose to remain in PEI because of the effects of the lockout.

Read the linked article - he was 3rd in the league w over a hundred points in his. OA year.

I read the link. An overager putting up over 100 points after being average to below average, point wise, the rest of his junior career is nothing to brag about. Maybe you should re-read my post. I acknowledged his over age year.

My bad - the wording threw me off track. A huge improvement in the OA year is far from commonplace and the improvement was big-time. Certainly worth the invite in any event.

Prospect Potential

All, I wanted to get everyone's opinion on our prospects and the relative fit in with the big club. I don't want their 'max' potential, but realistically where you think they will fit in. For example, it is more likely that Lessio is going to be a 3rd line guy than a 1st or 2nd line guy.

1&2 Line: Domi, Samuelsson, Dauphin
3&4 Line: Brown, Lessio, LaPlante
AHL Call up: Martinook, Rieder

Def Top 2: Gormley
Def Top 4: Murphy
Def Bottom 2: Summers
AHL Call up: Clifton, Hache, Melindy, Tikkinen, Holland

I'm going to be a little radical here

I think Murphy and Samuelsson have the highest (maximum) ceilings out of the entire group. They've got the physical talent to be stars. Will they end up there? Probably not. But both turned heads at camp, Murphy especially.

I think Domi and Dauphin have the highest realistically attainable ceilings in the organization. Both ooze skill with the puck. We could be shell-shocked by this after years of drafting plugs, but I'm excited about both.

Safest NHL career bet is Gormley. I'm not sure where he is going to end up, and I don't think you can call him a lock to be a top 2. There was a time when OEL wasn't even that. They may as well just throw him in the deep end this year and see if he sinks or swims. Another year in the AHL would just be a total waste.

Wildcard is Lessio. I know hbk was pretty high on him, and he impressed in camp. Sounds like he will have a legit shot to earn a roster spot.

I really like Lessio. I think he is another Lucic, with better hands and less physicality. I'm starting to look at Murphy a little more. He was at one point my least favorite prospect, but I've seen video and the dude looks to have some serious talent. Physical and mobile, that's what you want in a first round defensive draft pick.

If the guy could stay healthy I'd like him a lot more than Rundblad. He impressed me at the WJC...then a week later he was done for the season again. Then I go back to thinking that it was a wasted draft pick. Another thought I had while watching him play was the entire tournament I kept wondering what was so special about Seth Jones. Good defenseman? Yes. But "top rated prospect"? I didn't see it.

Jones stands out significantly to me. So strong on the puck, great skater, and his hockey IQ is off the charts. I think he'll be better than Suter.

Lessio plays in top 6. Strong on puck and super fast skating. Decent size as well. Needs to just get accustomed to speed of pro game. Instead of having 2 seconds to make a play he will have 1.

Do others here agree that an over-age year in the OHL could be good for Murphy?

I hadn't considered it before, but it's not a bad idea.

I think there's an argument for accelerating Murphy's development.

Like it or not, he's always going to be on the fragile side, he is never going to be a hockey ironman. So I'm dubious whether the OHL slog is the best thing, getting banged up, constantly playing games and on the road. College hockey would have been a lot more suitable. Murphy isnt going to be like most prospects or other prospects. He's going to play a certain number of games but at a high level. He has the talent to overcome these obstacles so I wouldnt be against having him in the AHL but not playing every game.
