I'm guessing you missed the Shinkaruk pick

was about to say the same thing. Him and Max Domi are some of the first draft picks that have dads I actually remember playing.

I'm delighted with Shinkaruk at 24. I just wish we had Shinkaruk and Schneider, or even Shinkaruk and Nichushkin, not Shinkaruk and Horvat.

I'm still butt hurt. Lodge is a offensive center with high end skill and speed. His only knock is his frame. He's like 6'1, 160 pounds. Biggest steal of the draft in my opinion.

All Canadian kids too. Add Brendan Gaunce into the mix and that is a nice set of strong Canadian kids.

Some reading for you all.

Scouting reports:

Quote:
Cole Cassels - Forward - Oshawa Generals
Growing up, Andrew Cassels was always one of my favourite players. I always admired his ability to set-up his teammates and how he could hit the tiniest hole with a pass. Well Cole is Andrew's son and he has a pretty similar skill set. Cole's best attribute is his playmaking ability. He's a very skilled passer and was a pretty consistent contributor all season long for Oshawa. He is turnover prone though. I find that Cassels tries to force plays occasionally; attempting to hit holes that aren't there. He has this tendency to make bad passes to the middle of the ice. Patience is a virtue and it's something Cassels will have to learn in order to take that next step as an offensive pivot. Cassels will also have to work on becoming a more explosive skater. His father was never a burner, but without elite size, having that extra gear could make him a more difficult player to contain. The one thing that Cole possesses that his father never really did, is a mean streak. Cole is already a solid three zone player who is actually a bit of a pest on the ice. He'll drop the gloves, throw hits, is aggressive on the forecheck, and he'll get his nose dirty in the corners. This truculent side of his game is something I expect to grow even more as he gets older and stronger.

Cole Cassels - Forward - Oshawa Generals
When I saw Cassels play last year, I was actually a bit surprised that he was the son of playmaking legend Andrew Cassels (who was one of my favourite players growing up). Some similar qualities for sure, in that neither is big. And Cole seems to have the hockey sense his Dad did. But Cole is also a more physically aggressive player, and an already committed two way center. While the offensive stats aren't eye popping, he's got more potential than he showed last year on an inconsistent Oshawa team. Cole will likely be the 3rd line center behind Boone Jenner and Scott Laughton, which will give Oshawa a terrific trip down the middle.
Hockey Prospect:

Quote:
Cole’s role increased greatly this season playing primarily on the third line,
with spot action on the second line. He consistently received top penalty killing minutes and was very
strong in this role.

Any team looking at selecting Cole will likely look primarily to his ability to shut down the
opposition. He constantly maintains excellent defensive zone positioning and gets his sticks in lanes.
He’s willing to get down and block shots and pressures the puck carrier very well. He also engages
regularly in battles. Cole has really improved his skating ability over the last two years and he’s
turned this area into an asset to his game. He wins races to a lose puck and can carry it deep into the
offensive zone. He engages in puck battles in all three zones, however, has experienced mixed results
in this area primarily due to a lack of strength.

Offensively he doesn’t appear to have a great amount of upside at the pro level. Many of his plays
around the goal area with the puck revolve around throwing the puck into the slot and hoping for the
best, and he doesn’t show a very high level of puck skills. He has shown some moves on the
breakaway, and gets many of his goals around the slot. We undoubtedly believe an NHL team will be
interested in Cassels and we see him being selected. However, we see him being a penalty killing
specialist who plays a bottom six role, should he make the next level. Cole will be a key contributor
to the Generals who are losing much of their top talent. He will have a great opportunity to reach
career highs statistically and play in every game situation for his team.

Andrew Cassels was one of my favourite Canucks of all time. Can't say I'm displeased about picking his song in the third round even if they are (obviously) very different players.

Seems like a two-way guy with a bit of grit. Skating issues.

Should get a huge boost in icetime next year, will see what happens. Our OHL scouts have been pretty good so will give this one the benefit of the doubt.
Bet you'll be happy getting him in the 4th :-)

Liked Cole when I watched him play a few games this season. Plays hard and seems to have good hockey IQ. Definitely some untapped offensive potential and stats are on the low side due to his role. Didn't watch enough games but wouldn't surprise me if he got a lot of the tough match-ups this past season.

Wish they would have swung a little harder for a homerrun type pick here, but there really isn't too much to complain about.

He's going to get tons of ice next year, probably as the #2 C, possibly even 1st line.

I hope this means the Canucks will scout the hell out of Michael Dal Colle, who I really like as a potential 2014 pick.

People hear what they want to hear, I guess.

I've probably supported/agreed with 90% of what this team has done over the past 5 years.

If anything, I feel like I'm constantly harping on spoiled fans who treat seasons where we win division titles like they're a disaster. Or claim that we had a crap year in 2011-12, when we won the President's Trophy.

I've criticised a few minor head-scratcher moves (Sturm, Barker) and the Ballard situation, but the last week or two is the first time I've legitimately questioned ownership/management since the Nonis era.

Pretty good scrap in this review. Not sure about this pick. Lot of players like Cassels in Junior hockey. Good solid players but have done little to distinguish themselves from the pack. Need to see some crucial development by next year.

Exactly.

Don't judge unless you know your facts.

I wanted the Leafs to get Cole Cassels in the later rounds - Very very solid pick there.

Watch for him to have a big year with the Gens (if they don't trade him) He has the 'breakout and wonder why he fell to the 3rd potential', when he makes the NHL. Smoooth as silk skater, accepted and played a great 2-way role with the Gens behind 2 NHL bound Centers; He will get his minutes and double his stats. (I will go to the bank on that one)
