Looks like a player well worth taking a flier on at this point in the draft... he had just about double the amount of goals scored than the next closest player on the team. 30 more points then the second leading scorer in Strathroy.

We need to keep gambling with these boom or bust highly offensive flare guys. And add another goaltender so we dont have to worry about the depth for a long time. You have nothing to lose at this point. This draft is already a success, so swing for the fences. I want one of those late round swedes that turn into players too.

Yes, the question was whether he will start (as a C) or be on the bench.

Max Campbell should be on the first or second line to start the season. With the loss of their top two forwards, Campbel should fill in the void. A note to add is that WMU also has two other current NHL draft picks on their roster in Matt Clackson (PHI) and Chris Frank (PHX).

Not sure if someone already replied...

The CCHA (of which Western Michigan is a part of) has struggled in recent years, with the WCHA clearly being the toughest league, and Hockey East being ranked about second.

Within the CCHA, Western Michigan isn't one of the powerhouse teams, with Michigan, Michigan State, Miami and OSU typically ranking higher.

A player who has a very similar background (same team, also won the OHA player of the year, then went on to play college) is none other than Andy McDonald:

Year Team League GP G A Pts
1995-96 Strathroy OJHL-B 52 31 56 87

and the funny thing about that is McDonald was never drafted.

I like this pick. Certainly worth taking a flyer on a kid with offensive potential like this.

Let's see, MSU won the NCAA's; you left out U of Notre Dame, which won the CCHA, but lost to MSU in Frozen 4. ND had two of its new recruits, Ian Cole and Teddy Ruth go in 1st round of NHL draft. CCHA is now the top dog. WCHA is a very strong league, better than CCHA, debatable, Hockey East is up there also. Just depends on what year and who has a great recruiting class. BU had a great class so look for them in about 2 years. This is a cycle and right now I believe CCHA is top dog. This is a discussion for NCAA board and we must include OC

I know this is going off topic but I completely disagree man. WCHA is clearly the top dog of the NCAA conferences (followed by both the CCHA and HE)...and this is coming from an avid HE fan. The talent on the Minnesotas, the Wisconsins, and the North Dakotas is simply undeniable. I mean just look at this draft - in the first 2 rounds, the WCHA had 7 players, the HE had 5, and the CCHA had 4. In the last 20 years, the WCHA has 9 national championships in 13 apperances, compared to 4 in 12 for HE and 7 in 9 for the CCHA. The CCHA is improving, but by no means are they top dog. Sorry to hijack this thread, but I had to make my point.

This could be Sathers Best Draft EVER!
It figures Sather would have a good draft in adraft that is considered shallow & not deep, Slats always finds the Diamonds in the rough. Time will tell.

Granted it changes from year to year, but the CCHA hasn't been strong of late. The WCHA and HE have been the better leagues, though it's fair to say that the CCHA had a bit of a rennaissance last year with the surprise re-emergence of ND which had been languishing for the past few years (maybe a new coach helped too?).

But my point was really that Western Mich. is one of the outside schools in a league that has not been as strong as Hockey East and the WCHA over the past few years.

I think after almost every draft I can find people who think this...with perhaps with the exception of those drafts where the Rangers have had no 1st round picks

At this moment, I still go with 2005. Aside from having the good fortune and patience to get Cherepanov at #17, there is way too much uncertainty to claim excellence on this year. At least three of these kids, (Campbell, Hagelin and Hobbs), won't even be on the radar for four years. Lafleur is a goalie, so his development will take time.

Meanwhile, look at 2005. It is very conceivable that the Rangers have four core players - Staal, Sauer, Dupont and Pyatt - come from that year. Add in using Cliche to get Avery, and turning Russell into another draft pick, and were are talking superd. In fact, if the Rangers hadn't wasted a pick on Flatt when TJ Hensick was on the board, we'd be looking at a simply amazing draft.

Even though it wasn't a draft day thing, don't forget that the Rangers also acquired Bourret, who was from the 2005 draft. So they end up with two first rounders from that draft in addition to the rest of their picks. It's looking like 2005 could be quite kind to the Rangers.
