I wish Nurse could play for the Oil Kings.

I feel like every one of their D have developed well beyond their draft position from playing in that organization. (Pysyk, Reinhart, Lowe, Gernat, Musil) I think we should be targeting Mayo this year. (I think this is his draft year?)

I love how Gernat and Musil always take the puck from the boards to the middle where they have the highest scoring chances in the offensive zone.

His skating flaws have always been exaggerated. He's just not an explosive skater

A lot of great players have played for the Greyhounds, most noteably Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey. I don't think there were any decent defenders in the last few years though. In the OHL I think Niagara is the best for defensemen.

I'm more speaking about development instead of talent.

keegan lowe is a good example. At his draft he was never going to play in the NHL. Since then he's developed to the point where i think he'll have a long sucessful career.

Gernat plays a different game, but was developed incredibly by the Oil Kings. A 5th rounder should rarely ever play over 40 games in the NHL. (In the current league) He might, and i think it's due to the development of the Oil Kings.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread.

A little early to say that though isnt it? Not one of them including Pysyk has made it to the NHL as a regular yet so it's really hard to say that the development here was all that great or out of the ordinary.

anyone catch this article on Gernat from copper n blue?

http://www.coppernblue.com/2013/9/10...nat-to-forward

interesting idea, converting Gernat to forward. his skill set and 6'5" framehas NHL written all over it but maybe not as a Dman. he certainly would have a faster track to the show as a forward.

worth considering at least

We have too many defense men

It seems to me that we too many defense men playing for NHL and AHL spots. Especially left defense men

It is sufficient to say that these guys will be in NHL

Ference J.Schultz
Smid Petry
N.Schultz Potter
Grebeshkov Larssen

And in the AHL

Marincin Fedun
Belov Davidson
Klefbom Gernat
Hunt Musil

It could be awesome to trade Nick Schultz for the center man. Dollar for dollar trade.
We need one more proven center. Later in the season we should move also one of the Potter or Larssen if it seems palusible to elevate Gernat to play top 4 role in OKC

I am willing to bet that Belov is in the NHL to start, and he's ahead of Grebeshkov on the depth chart. Belov was one of the best D men in the KHL last year, while Grebs was arguably one of the worst.

While it pains me to think Grebs will be in the NHL after the way he played that last game, he probably will, and I think it's a battle between Potter and Larssen to stay up.

But man, OKC could be a powerhouse defensively if these guys play to 80% of their potential this year. There are a lot of guys to choose from when injuries set in for cups of coffee on defense.

Gernat and Musil were sent down to OKC. It seems to me that they can end up rotating betwwn third pairing and PB in OKC. Another option is ECHL. I am not great fan of ECHL so sending them back to juniors is better option.

We do have a lot of depth in our defense forces. Maybe one or two defense man can be traded for fillilling the needs somewhere else

We have quite many prospects and long term contracts whose upper ceiling is between number 4 to PB defense man:

Smid
Ference
Larsen
Fedun
Belov
Marincin
Davidson
Klefbom
Nurse


So Gernat and Musil are among 11 guys competeing for 4 spots or among 9 guys to compete for 3 spots because Klefbom and Nurse can be top3 defense men

Gernat is number 2 in OKC

Gernat has developed well and plays in the top pairing with Fedun in OKC ahead of Grebeshkov.

I think that he needs to add some meat to his body to compete in NHL . I would keep him and Marincin as a top pairing next year in minors.

Thanks, I'll have to follow that guy.

So much for the Barons being a place to play our young kids. Add it to the list of BS they have been spewing.

So you readily admit you have no idea what the depth chart down there looks like, but are quick to call out the organization when one player is inserted for another, just because one is a vet and the other is a prospect? Not very open minded of you, is it? Wouldn't hurt you to watch some games before being this quick to criticize.

They rotate the players through, Gernat gets his fair share of ice time.

Sorry, I don't follow every aspect this organization is associated with. I better start looking at the Bakerfield Condors broadcast schedule.

It was a 3 game in 3-day situation. I bet they rested a different d-man each game to spread it out. Based on recent results, he sounds like he is at least top 4 on the team now which is awesome considering he started somewhere between 7 and 10 on the farm, including an ECHL start.

He has developed well. Taste of NHL would do good for his development. After trading deadline he should be called up for the short stint. We should move as many defenseman as possible prior to deadline(to make room for Fedun&co): Potter, Belov Larsen and Nick Schultz. It is always demand of d men when contending clubs prepare for the post season
