Kootenay is up on Medicine Hat 2-1. Skapski stopped 39 of 40 shots last night to get the win. After an absolute implosion in the first round, he has settled in against MH. He's 2-1 with a .934 SV% in the series. Kootenay had faith in him and so far has been rewarded. So often you see teams in junior hockey just ride the hot hand.

I am starting to become very high on him.

I would think another Junior season would be best for him if the team will commit to him playing most of the games. Goalies take time.

Absolutely. And this one area we have depth so letting him play a bunch is really the best route to go.

If Skapski is a quality goalie, he should be able to play in the AHL next season. People are taking "don't rush kid" too far.

Rushing a prospect would be promoting him ahead of schedule. Having a 20 year old move to the AHL is perfectly on schedule. Keeping him as an overager against kids would be keeping him behind others his age.

Goalies take longer but it doesn't mean they should be overager in a kids league. Sure, some overagers like Callahan and Purinton made it, but let's not confuse that to mean that being an overager is a normal step.

If anything, I'd prefer that he plays in the ECHL, a league far superior to the Canadian juniors.

Not yet for me - his development this year has been very Stajcer-like in his first year when he became a part of the Rangers organization.

I still believe that Scott Stajcer could be a decent professional goalie if he could stay healthy for any extended period of time. He had the talent. The consistency, in theory, would come from experience. Unfortunately for him, goalies with chronic hip problems won't make it very far. Still, I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see him resurface with a few good AHL seasons down the line.

Buccigross is a brutal play by play guy.

Devils look like they hit a home run with the Great Santini.

Then again, I said that about us with Mottau in 2000.

Skjei is going to be an excellent NHL defenseman.

Very smart pick by the Rangers. These type of defensemen are an absolute goldmine in terms of transitioning to the NHL and the Rangers have clearly cornered the market.

What's the deal with Duclair? AHL next year? Or does he have to do one more year in minors? Frankly all of this prospect stuff is foreign to me

It's either the NHL or the QMJHL for him next season. The rule is that a CHL (OHL, WHL or QMJHL) player has to be 20 years old by Dec 31st of that year, or has completed 4 years of play in major-junior. Duclair has only played 3 seasons and won't turn 20 until August 2015.

The other thing of note is that the Rangers can keep him in the NHL for up to 9 games to start the year before electing to send him back. If he plays a 10th game, they'll use up a year of his entry-level contract.

Really wish they would change that rule. Someone like duclair, or more prominent example like drouin, are clearly ready for the AHL.

Night and day from last year and hes really upped his play since the games started to matter.

Sidenote: I've never understood the fuss with Mike Reilly. Hes a marginal NHL prospect who will be lucky if he can carve out a Peter Harrold type career IMO.

And then there was the brutal turnover on the tie breaking goal

Reilly has a ton of trouble in his own end. Way too much hype

Skjei looks huge out there and he skates really well. He was in on the offense more last night than the few other times I've watched him. I think his game is beginning to come together. One more year at Minnesota U. and he should be ready to turn pro.
