It would probably be perfect if Nurse could play in the AHL, the age restrictions seem idiotic to me. If he can play in the NHL, he should be able to play in the AHL.

I agree with s7ark, he'll dominate junior but so what, after another year there, he'll be ready I'd be for top 4 time.
Age restrictions are in place to keep the junior leagues from being stripped of there top players. Its a good rule and I personally think almost every player(especially dmen) would benefit from staying in junior as long as possible.

Our core is young enough I would be ok with letting these kids come into their own. I don't think they will be 4 yrs away.
Next year our dmen are:
Petry
J.Schultz
Belov
Klefbom
Ference
Fedun
2015 we have
Petry
J.Schultz
Belov
Klefbom
Ference
Nurse
Fedun
2016
Nurse
Klefbom
Ekblad
Petry
J.Schultz
Belov
Ference

That is plenty of size and skill.
Nurse; Ekblad
Klefbom; J.Schultz
Belov; Petry
Ference(last year of contract)
Belovs a UFA this summer, hopefully we can lock him down.

Nurse is basically a man among boys right now. His professional sports pedigree will certainly help him transition to the NHL next year.

Hopefully his decision making will be quick enough to keep up.

On top of the junior leagues being stripped of their top players, the school issue is HUGE for the 3 leagues. While it is it's own thing if a top pick plays in the NHL and still has a bit of high school to finish, going to the AHL and still having a bit more high school is different. I think it is a credit to the 3 leagues to have spoken up on this issue in the past as being so important.

Based on the development path of a lot of the leagues best defensemen, such as Weber, Suter, Pietrangelo, Subban, OEL, Karlsson, etc. it appears the best course of action post draft is 1 year of junior + 1/2 year in the AHL (at minimum). Considering Nurse's age, I am in favour of 2 years in the OHL and at least 30 games in the AHL with a few NHL games sprinkled in.

In the short term, this is not ideal for EDM, however once Nurse is playing on the Oilers, he will have a bigger impact throughout his ELC (e.g. Weber, Pietrangelo, Subban)

Nice to see Simpson getting on the board and to see Laleggia and McCarron continuing to put on points.

Laleggia leading his team in goals and points with 6-4-10 in 11 games.

McCarron is also leading his team in assists and points with 2-8-10 in 7 games. He also leads the team in shots on goal with 18.

Nurse laid a huge hit last night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIrGactYk9Y

Went to the Otters-Hounds game. Nurse is a fantastic player, best player on the ice. But when he wasn't on the ice, Erie dominated. SSM still a very good team though, led by Nurse. I'll be pretty surprised if he isn't in Edmonton next season.

Nurse is, by far, the player I'm most excited for.

Aidan Muir is quietly having a pretty good season so far.

He has 4g 4a in 11 games in the USHL.

He's not lighting the world on fire, but pretty impressive considering he was still playing in Midget last season.

13 points in only 8 games now - he's on pace to put up 105 points in a full season. Given Roy's strong camp and his early production, he seems like one of our few potential top 6 forward prospects.

Does Toni Rajala still belong to the Oilers?

He's total dominant in the SHL now.

Nope.

The contract was terminated, so he's a UFA.

Both of Houck's points were of the empty net variety.
