Question though....does that affect Mike's chances to be invited because of his 3 uncommitments to American universities.....Cause before Western Michigan, he uncommited to Cornell and another one.
I read he didn't have the grades to go to Cornell so it's not a real uncommitment.

Say things go well and McCarron develops into a top 6 player, what would you think of a top 6 looking similar to this:

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - McCarron/Gallagher
LW/Prospect - Eller - Gallagher/McCarron

Thanks!

Your right and I know he is only 18. I was just comparing him to Tinorde at that age. Tinorde showed more maturity at that age and became the captain of London the next year.
I think he is a great prospect but I believe he will take longer to get to the NHL...
I hope I am wrong, we need a guy like him on are team like yesterday

I don't know how you can refer to a "lack of maturity" without even knowing the player/hearing about 1 or 2 interviews here and there about him.

Correct. I know this is subjective and more of a gut feeling....but I have learned over the years to go with my gut feelings in business and more often then not I have been right.
I was not trying to offend McCarron in any way....I think he is a great prospect for the Habs

I seen in an interview that he has 6 planned meals a day and is very commited to the gym. Usually tells me something about their character because at 18 years old I ate whatever came at me especially guys that are that big naturally will usually feel like they can put away anything

Sorry delete my comment. I am no expert and I see I have made a mistake in my comment....I am showing immaturity on writing on the board

I really like him as a prospect and I hope he uses twitter and other social media more correctly then me

Haha funny part is, this could very much happen if things wouldn't go "so brightly" for both DLR and big Mac... Really good 3rd liners and leaving a RW spot for Collberg if it works out for him, too.

On the contrary, I'm looking forward to a de la Rose - Crisp - McCarron 3rd line; I fully expect us to have the most complete Top 9 in the league with interchangeable top 3 lines, each one a killer:

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Collberg
Hudon/Lehkonen - Eller - Gallagher/Thomas
de la Rose - Crisp/Vail - McCarron
Prust - Vail/Crisp - White

That isn't a bad line up at all. Our defense and goaltending is also pretty good so I think it is fair to say it's looking bright! Or am I too optimistic?

That's OK, you'll grow out of it. I'm planning to in a few years.

This is good to hear. Some players don't seem to get the importance of
diet until they get to the NHL.

The fact that he was drafted from NTDP also means he could play AHL at 19...though I'd want to see hik put up 80-90 points OHL at 18 before playing him there at 19.

Well, I'd have to think that most 1st rounders have some kind of diet, if they're serious about their hockey career.

First time since I-don't-remember-when that we have that much quality euros prospects/young players.

It's crazy to think about how stacked we could be at RW:

Gallagher
Collberg
McCarron

Could all be first line RWs.

So happy McCarron went this route. The OHL is the place for him, simply because of the number of games he'll play. Also, he's going to play with and against some of the top talent in the prospect world. Playing with Domi, Horvat,etc should get him accustomed to playing with high skill line mates (Perfect for when he's finishing Galchenyuk's passes to him )

So he'll for sure play in the WJC's next year right?

Everytime I look at our 2013 draft I can't stop thinking about the Chicago Blackhawks. They lost Byfuglien, Ladd, Sopel, Versteeg and Eager and were able to replace every last one of them with players from within ( Bickell, Shaw, Kruger, Boilig, Leddy, etc.). If you look at the big picture for the Habs, it's so freackin obvious that Bergevin has the same plan for us. It's why he has this obssessiom with character players, because with that set of mind they usually work harder to get to the NHL, not that they will all turn out all-star players..
