Lethbridge Hurricanes

Can they do it? Are they overlooked? Should they have more draft players? What do you guys think?

Myself, I see them A LOT. I think that this will be a huge year for them and it will rest on the back of Versteeg and Yellowhorn and everyone on D except Seabrook. Seabrook is a great defenseman but 45 minutes a night will mean that the guys around him on D need to do their part. Versteeg is a natural talent with great hockey sense. Sometimes he makes the lazy play but his coaching has changed and so has his game. Yellowhorn.... WOW. Last year Versteeg told me Yellowhorn was the best 16 year old on the team and maybe in the league. Now as a 17 year old hes proving it. At this rate he will get drafted regardless of his 5'7" frame.

Biggest problem is Depth. they have two lines that are inexperienced and way less effective... but Im done typing for tonight. What do the other fans/haters think?

I'd like to see them go out and get a guy like Chipchura and then I think they'd make a decent run. 2 big wins this weekend has to have them believing they've got a chance at playoff success. A few pieces missing. Like you said, Seabrook is playing too many minutes to survive the WJC and the extra 25+ games it will take to win the WHL. Chapman coming back helps, but he's still finding his game.

Not too much.. his season is kinda disappointing at this point. He will need to find his game fast

Totally true. they get pushed around too much and let the other team get away with it. Mezei is the toughest guy on the team and no one wants to fight him cuz hes sooo strong.

Bring more Hurricane fans

If any of you Lethbridge guys know some hurricane fans bring em here. It would be nice to talk about the games and the players with a lot more opinions and comments.

Lots of talent. If he gets motivated he'll do good. #1 is a stretch though.

I've seen Seabrook play many times this year. Does he have the talent to be a #1 or #2 in the NHL? Yes, if he is paired with the right player. He's nothing physical, so he'd need to be paired with a physical dman that is willing to clear the front of the net, as that isn't Seabrook's game.

Ive seen Byfuglien play only a few times and we made fun of the fact that he was the crappiest player on the team.. He could have been playing a bad game that day or something but he has yet to impress me.

Quick, strong.. would be an impact player if he didnt hate being there. Only met him once so I cant say as far as attitude. He doesnt see much ice, probably because everyone on the team seems to work harder than him and actually want to play. The sad thing is its his draft year and he could be a prospect if he was anywhere else.

I heard rumours that he was going to ask for a trade, preferably to a team like Kamloops, who could use a potential goal scorer. Any news like that over there?

.....my rumours can from the man himself.

I can't imagine the Hurricanes would get much for him. He's hasn't really done much at all throughout his WHL career. Addition by subtraction maybe.
