messenger is a solid two way player, low risk very skilled though, just does all the little things right...if he was taller he would be a 1st round pick, but at 5'08 and he is pretty light he will fall to 2nd to 3rd round.

Shatford is wayyyy to small but he is skilled offensivly, not sure if he will get drafted.

Mann is a good defenseman, he is too safe at times I would like to see a player with his puck handling and skating ability to actually jump up and create something or take the puck here and there...he is above average in his own zone, but he is a guy who will be a 4th rounder probably...if he worked on his offensive game because he has all the skills he would be a higher pick.

Moody is probably going to be a 1st round pick...I am starting to question his hockey sense though, he is a very fast skater, excellent two way, physical, gritty...good offense, but though he is a good ppuck handler his handling is choppy at times it is his 2nd effort that recovers the puck, he goes to the net has solid passing and shooting skills...it is his speed, 2nd effort ability and work ethic that makes this guy good

Quillan is a speedy dman, loves the offene part of the game, he is smaller but witih his game his height will not hurt him too much, he has good speed, excellent hands on the rush and able to create off the rush...he is one of thebetter offensive dmen in atlantic canada, he needs to get stronger and tougher but his offensive game is great.

Gibson has missed a lot of the season and he stepped in without looking like he missed a beat...he is smart, makes good plays, very quick witted and reacts very fast...he has good hockey sense at both ends, his play will not blow you away but he is solid and smart.

I saw the Moody kid play against Pictou County a week ago. Solid two-way player that worked at both ends of the ice. He finished well on the chances he had and distributed the puck at the right times. Not afraid to go to the dirty ice even though he is not that big. Once he fills out a bit, he will make some more room for himself in traffic. Looked real good for a 1996-born kid.

I was at this tourney and was very pleased with the talent I saw..I am from Maritimes so was following mostly Atlantic. Obviously MacKinnon was dominant, prob best player in tourney even though he didn't dominate the tournament he is still looking like a top pick in next years NHL draft. I thought Atlantic was a little biased towards NB players. Coach is from Fredericton and players seeing most icetime especially with MacKinnon were from Fredericton or NB. Many people talking that it was a NB showcase. He had Zilbert (undrafted) playing with MacKinnon while guys like Falkenham saw limited icetime..I thought the second best forward on Atlantic was Gallant, an underager. When playing with MacKinnon he seemed to be the only one who could keep up with the speed and sense of MacKinnon. He was prob best player on ice in Czech game, getting one goal and having multiple scoring chances. Too bad cause I really thought team Atlantic suffered from a stubborn coach who refused to switch things up even though they weren't working and a refusal to give the best players on the team the ice time they deserved because of where they were from or their age. I think with better coaching Atlantic could of been a bronze medal contender or at least been playing for 5th..my opinion

I really don't see how it could be considered an NB showcase when only 5 skaters were from NB and two of them play in the Q and one is playing Jr.A.

I could definitely see why it would be frustrating to have Mackinnon playing with Midget players instead of Q players. I heard that he seemed to quit on the team a few times, i.e. backchecking was non-existant, lazy changes

It is too bad that they couldn't sneak a win a against Quebec and get into the playoff round, but I just don't think there was enough talent to get to a medal game.

Apparantly, Daniel Sprong left Montreal and now his playing in the US. I guess he was tired of playing bantam for a 3rd straight year...

Spring should've played espoir !

Cusson won't be drafted in the 1st round if at all. I'm pretty sure he's NCAA bound.

They wouldn't let Sprong play Espoir. Not sure if Cusson is headed to the NCAA. I doubt it.

As a friend of team Atlantic I think you are way off base. MacKinnon keeps getting called the best player in the tourney but good players pass the puck. No doubt his skill is there but he played with 3 different line combinations throughout the week and was never the best line of the night. He would zig and everyone would zag. Great players make other around them better. As far as ice-time is concerned, the NB boys were all deserving of their time. I thought Murphy, Cooper and Zilbert were top 6 all tournament as were Lyle, Fancy and Graves from NS. Too bad team had to have political appointments from PEI and NFLD.
