I'd rather have guys like Noreau and St. Croix there than someone who's one level above playing against me in a beer league.
What will St. Croix and Noreau really gain from playing four games in Traverse City? Last year, the only guy we sent with any real NA professional experience was Yogan, and the tournament certainly didn't do him any good. The rest were guys fresh out of or still in junior hockey, or European leagues. That's what we do every year.

You're right in that there's not much out there in terms of unsigned talent, but I don't really understand how it benefits guys that already have a season of professional experience in the AHL and ECHL to play against a bunch of guys with less experience.

Really love to hear that Buchnevich is training here in NA and great news to hear from Skjei as well. Decent news for Duclair. Hope he plays even better.

I really like Buchnevich. Hope he puts on some more muscle. I was impressed with his game at WJCs.

Gross is wrong about Tambellini.

He had 2-2-4 for the Sioux, then was a combined 22-26-48 in 37 games for the Hitmen.

Tambellini was a great addition for Calgary. He was essentially their most productive playmaker and developed chemistry with Virtanen, who's a Kreider clone.

The coach was fired after the first round loss to Kootenay (the series Skapski was horrific) and replaced by Mark French, who won a Calder Cup with Hershey and was in the KHL.

I didnt like Tambellini after the NoDak thing but it was obviously the right choice. He should have a big year this year.

Whether or not his game translates to the NHL is a mystery. French will definitely have him AHL-ready after next season.

I like this draft.

The only pick that annoyed me was Halverson. Would've rathered Glover.

I liked the draft. You could see that the organization had a plan in mind going in, which is reassuring.

Also, the Buchnevich thing is awesome to hear. Probably getting an early start on prospect camp.

Point or Kalrsson would've been nice.

I can't believe Anton Karlsson dropped so low.

He was talked about before as a 1st rounder.

I understand that this helps our goaltending depth quite significantly, but grabbing a few centers would've been really nice. There are a load of good talent that teams passed on so I could see us bringing a few in for prospects camp, hopefully.

Completely agree, we should've definitely taken one of the two.
