Anyone else there to give a report?

Kyle Ward is officially a big deal. This kid can play the damn game. Plus 2 mvps in the Q challenge. I never thought that big on the kid, but he has turned my tables

Never say never...Scott just made you look pretty foolish, don't quit your day job.

This pick and the Hugo Robichaud pick looks to me that the Titan are trying to bring in more people to the games with players from the area. These picks weren't a surprise to me at all after reading the post from the newspaper in another thread for what the Titan were looking for in players. No one wants to see a losing team so the Titan organization must make picks like this work out or this draft will be a bust for them.

Not sure what they were thinking with Robichaud, but Scott had a pretty good U16 tournament in Montreal. He may not crack the line up this year but he will eventually be there. Never thought I would here of a major junior team wasting a pick to bring in fans, seriously where do you people come from. If it wasn't Bathurst it could have been at least 3 other teams looking at him. As for jake Vance, he will also eventually fit in somewhere. I have yet to see or may never see every first year draft pick make their respective clubs. Come out of your basements boy's....lol

A pretty good weekend doesn't make you a player that can play in the QMJHL. Conrad had an amazing weekend but wasn't picked. Both the Robichaud and Scott picks look to me as a way to sell tickets to fans from the area. Both can barely skate and in my mind is essential to play at the QMJHL level. The Titan's attendance has been extremely low and was marked as a big issue but the attendance won't go up if they don't get any exciting players to watch. I'm going to call it right now that Acadie-Bathurst Titan pick Ryan Kenny (Bathurst born) next year in the draft. I just think that there was better players that they could have taken like Tower, Picco, Bower or Paul before Robichaud and Parsons, King, and Boucher before Scott. I don't know much about the Quebec players taken after these two so I can't mention any names but there probably was more than one that could replace both. I think the Titan went for players from the area and that's the way I see it.

The Sea dogs went for the best players available and probably had one of the best drafts. They drafted big bodies after Noal and Thompson but they were big bodies that can play. Also, I think they would have taken Deschenes at 51 if Victoriaville didn't take him with the 50th pick.

Robichaud and Scott are sentimental picks they are from the area the new ownership hopes just drafting them will help sell tickets, lets hope they make it some day.

Nice to see 10 first year players drafted this year from NB.You have to remember this is the QUEBEC MJHL kids from the maritimes have a tough time taking spots from players in Quebec when you only have 6 maritime teams and 12 in Quebec, and along with over 8 million people in Quebec and approx 700,000 in NB I think NB did ok this draft.I thought Ward, Tompkins, Theriault , and Daley may have been drafted they are still good players.

Being drafted and playing there are two different things, time will tell I really hope he does make it, I don't mind if I am wrong in this case.I am not foolish just yet but I am working on it every day.

I'm guessing that you probably know very little about Scott. If you asked anyone from this area that has coached him they would tell you just how hard he has work and how passionate he is and has been about hockey since he was a little kid. If you asked any teacher who has taught him they would tell you that he is a good student and a very good kid. There are a lot of people from this area very pleased to see that all his hard work and dedication over the years has finally got him drafted to the team he said he would play for when he was just a little guy.

Some one had mentioned the "give a f$#% factor" in one of the other post, well he is very high on that scale, that is some thing that some of the most gifted players never figure out, and sometimes that kind of passion leads to unnessasary penalities. I have only seen him play few times last season and he may not have a beautiful stride return but he seemed to be flying around the ice to me. I have seen a few real pretty skaters who don't seem to accomplish much, which would you rather have on your team. I have seen Major Junior players on the ice with 9 and 10 year olds that have had a hard time doing some of the skating drills that the kids were doing but could still play in Major Junior. Ramzi Abid wasn't a great skater but he was a pretty good player.

I don't know if he will crack the line up this year but I can tell you I know he will be working his ass off and doing every thing that is asked of him. There were a lot of people that didn't think Scott would make the U16 NB team but he did, some times hard work pays off. I beleive he will be playing in Q some day and more importantly I think he believes it. Great story of hard work and determination paying off.

I understand that you probably know Scott personally as does mrscout but I'm coming from a non-personal connection to him. I've watched him play when he was younger and I watched him play this year and his give a f$%# factor is high but I think his risk at this point outweighs the reward. He's going to have to put in a lot of work to crack the Titan lineup in a year or so. Also, comparing him to Abid isn't a good comparison as Abid has a greater amount of skill than Scott that outweighs his lack of skating ability

Sorry but I don't know him personally nor am I from his area. I've only started watching him since he played his second year of bantam. As tonytinglebone, I believe had mentioned in an earlier post "he has a motor that doesn't quit". he definitely brings excitement to the game. He definetly has a different skating style but the kid can move when he has to. You obviously have not paid attention to his back checking game. I've seen him catch up to player's like Jacob on potential breakaways and break up the play. His battling skills are great, sacrifice's his body and he is a face off specialist from what I've seen. He knows how to play the 3 zones, decent set of hands, great shot and can run over anybody in the league. I now know for a fact that the sea dogs interviewed him and were going to draft him next, very good source in Saint John. Abid also had a different skating style but look how old he was when he hit N.B. A scouts decision is not based on goals and assists, every team looks for something different and this kid will do just fine. You don't mention Beaulieu anymore? Hard to take you serious anymore acting like you know everything about these kids. Do your research.

Does anyone have any information as to why Alex Jacob isn't attending the Wildcats camp? I'm asking because he isn't on the list for the Wildcats camp and mostly all the NB 97's that were drafted are attending their teams respective camps. I heard that Sarault is committed to a team in Colorado this season so I'm guessing he might not attend camp.

I think he is recovering from off season shoulder surgery and will be out until October or November

Forwards:
JM LeBlanc - Saint John
Alex Jacob - Moncton
Ryan Tompkins - Frederiction
Patrick Daley - Fredericton
Jonathan Larder - Charlottetown
Kari Belec - Moncton


Defense:
Matthew Paul - Fredericton
Jonathan Cloutier - Fredericton
David Comeau - Fredericton
Matthew McInnis - Saint John
Mitchell Robinson - Moncton

I'm sure there are others that I haven't thought of, and others that may surpass some of these ones but they would be the starting list in my mind. Of course some may still return from Junior teams.

Ya he was with Woodstock in Jr. A. Heard he wanted to play more and get more of an important role which he would get in midget so the family decided to make the change.

Thats good news for Fredericton he will be a leader there for sure, they could have a well balanced team this year even with the loss of Curtis, Vance and Deschene.Any idea how many returning playeys they have?

According to the League site, if they all return:

Forwards:
Tompkins
Daley
Cameron
LeBlanc
Pellerin
Billings
Stairs
Bamford

Defense:
Paul
Comeau
Fillmore
Hachey

Plus Cloutier on D... can't imagine him not making it. Curtis, Snow, Vance, Astle could all return.

I watched Cloutier play in Moncton he would be a lock in my opinion.I cant see the other's you mentioned returning most junior rosters should be final by now.

It is unlikely they will return, but junior rosters are never locked until Jan 10th. Anything can happen.

Agreed, any of those in junior camps could still be sent down I doubt if Deschenes will be back in Fredericton as far as the others its possible.

I'd add:

Kyle Ward-Moncton
Francis Theriault- Miramichi
Alex Beaulieu- Miramichi
Riley Scott- Miramichi
Jonathan Arsenault- Charlottetown
Max Morrison- Kensington
