prospect that fits your team philosophy/mold ?

for the leafs, i'd say justin pogge - goaltender

for the past while, the leafs have always been a team that relies on their goalie. they tend to have very very gritty teams that must really fight for wins, grit out one goal games etc... and in effect, with much of the character and grit on the forwards lines, they have had to rely on their defence corps a lot, and as well their goalie. from potvin, to cujo, and now with belfour, the leaf goalie has had to carry the load, mainly in the playoffs and face lots of shots to try and keep the team close enough to scrape out that gritty win

now, why i feel pogge fits this mold is as a goalie playing in prince george, last year, and the next two years, he's going to be facing a ton of work. prince george is not a very good defensive team, we give up a lot of shots, good chances, and are generally weak physically and in turn, the opposition gets a lot of rubber to the net. pogge thrived with that work last year, and is playing well this year, and i feel it's a fair assumption he will continue to develop next year facing a ton of work. when he does turn pro, he possibly could have the chance to steal todd ford's job a 2nd time if ford is indeed with the st.john's leafs by that time..

all in all, with pogge's past/current situation and the leafs' current mold of the team and how i see them continue to go, i think pogge fits in very well with the team's future (this is all assuming he realizes his potential as a professional goaltender)

now, who for your team?

Alexander Edler.-Canucks.

Reason: He's Swedish.

'Nuff said.

Heh, but really:

Schneider and Ellis-Plante (how in the world did he drop so badly in the 2004 draft? Based on that one prospects game?). Both goaltenders who have all the tools to do great in the NHL. Besides Auld, the Canucks have basically had ZERO goaltending prospects (everyone else was bound for minor league careers) since like..........the beginning of the franchise . Basically, anyone who can stop that freakin little dirty ******* (puck), is a perfect player for the Canucks.

Just kidding, but I had to get it in before someone else did.

I'd say Aki Seitsonen for the Flames, a Finn playing in the 'Dub, a third line center with no finish. He just screams Calgary.

I don't like to use a bigger name but I feel Chris Higgins or Patrick Eaves fit NJ like a glove. Both are hard working forwards who are gritty and play solid defense. They put the team ahead of themselves. A player like Steve Dixon would also fit our organization.

Oilers - Ovechkin

Kovalchuk would be even better cause he doesn't play defense True Oilers hockey!! :lol

This is a tough one for the Pens. They are a team in a transition from the high-octane offense of the past to a team relying on hard work and commitment to defense along with skill to win. I'd say Maxime Talbot best defines the new direction of Penguins hockey.

Habs: Hainsey - big wimpy overrated d-man who will never live up to his potential. Fits our team philosophy to a T. (And Cory Urquhart is his forward counterpart).

He works hard, and never quits, even when he gets crushed, he gets back up again. I think he personifies the direction that Edzo wants to take the team.

Right in line with Koltsov is Noah Welch. Big, mobile, and sound defensively. Seems like that's the Pens new philosophy all around.

Rangers:

Garth Murray
Joey Crabb
Mike Walsh

All three can be solid 3rd liners who play a STRONG team-oriented game and all three are said to be good leaders. Murray will also drop the gloves and stick up for anyone.

But he's not a prospect..and is actually kind of the opposite of what the preds are typically known for. he's a lot more flash and dash, rather than hard-nosed, grind the puck into the net kind of guy.

for the wings, i'd say andreas jamtin, because he is gritty and can be a pest sometimes. but he's also able to score once in a while, so he could be a great 3rd liner for detroit. being swedish won't hurt his chances.

FLA has a mixed mold now. Vision and physicality.

I'd say Olesz fits right in there. He has great vision but is also physical.
