If I remember right he does have good set of hands for what is projected to be a bottom line guy. I remember him making a real nice move or two in the WJC which is the only time I saw him.

2011 has a chance of being one of those drafts. Morrow, Harrington, Uher & even Archibald & Wilson have been impressive. We didn't even have a 3rd or 4th round pick.

3rd/4th liner i'd say.

Great energy, great in the locker room and will stand up for fellow players. Not your typical euro player that's for sure. He's great down in the corners and really hard to get the puck off of when hes down mucking in the corners, very strong. Definitely would like to see him shoot more because he has quite the shot.

Totally. I remember reading an interview and he said something along the lines of "I like being hit and hitting people".

my favourite Uher moment of the WJC was during the second period of CZE-USA game, time 21:15 - http://watch.tsn.ca/nhl/clip691172#clip593276. When he slams into 2 Americans and is the only one who stays on his feet. He was actually very tough in that tournament.

Seeing him live, most of you if not all of you, are vastly underrating this kid. He brings more to the table than some projected 4th line energy role.

Wait and see.

He impressed a lot of the scouting staff in camp too.

Yea they should be getting Bennet, rust, uher, kuhn, maybe morrow and possibly despres again depedning on if we keep martin. Anyone know if harrington is eligible for the AHL yet? Wouldnt shock me to see him make that step to pro hockey.

Hope you're right. Sounds like he does play more physical / is stronger on his skates than a typical player of his size, which would be good if he's got some offensive instincts and hands to go with it.

If he signed his deal, isn't it NHL or AHL?

Standard Shero setup for better prospects: 3 year, 2-way ELC. Starts the first time he laces up for WBS or the Penguins AFAIK. That'll presumably be this year in WBS.

thanks for that clarification so basically it's up to him to decide what he wants to do. With the solid season he had and the Memorial Cup appearance and solid performance is there anything left for him to learn in the OHL?

3 years, 2 way is a standard ELC for his age not a Shero standard.

I thought he had to play another year in junior?

ya pretty sure you need to be 20 coming from juniors to play in the AHL.
Morrow turns 20 this year so he's AHL eligible but Harrington doesnt turn 20 til next year.

Ah. Not paying attention to other teams' prospect signings I overlooked that. Thanks for clarifying.

Another year in London it is. I thought Morrow and Harrington were only a few months apart / figured they'd both make the jump to the AHL about the same time. Who knows, if he's dominant enough this year in the OHL he might make the jump next year to the big team if he is needed. Doubting it with Morrow and Despres both likely to be full-timers starting in 2013-2014 (if not this upcoming season for Despres), but who knows what havok the CBA will bring.

Its been discussed a few times in the Prospects thread, I ran a quick search and I believe the answers no, since hes a 93 birthday. Or like you said he wont turn 20 until March. I know theres other factors(where you were playing when drafted) but I dont think he fits any of them. Someone who knows the rules exactly can probably define this......again.

Sidney the Kidney explained the rule to me in one of the prospect threads so I'll do my best, If you're drafted out of the CHL then you become eligible to play in the AHL when either you complete 4 full seasons or if you turn 20 before January of the current season. Morrow qualifies on both counts and Uher qualifies as he'll turn 20 on December 31st. Harrington is born March 93 so he wont turn 20 before the cut off point and has only played 3 seasons so he's not eligible that way either. I think it's the same reason why Harrington can play in the World Juniors again but Uher and Morrow will be too old.

That sounds like what I've read and heard. If a player was drafted while playing for another league before entering the CHL then the rule doesnt apply to him.

Thanks for clarifying that. So it's NHL or CHL for Harrington. I guess he is going back to London. Thanks Wej20

Good explanation Wej! Just like shooting womp-rats in an evaporator... or something.

"....my T-16 back home." Come on Chancellor.
Also that was Luke during the Death Star run not Wedge Antilles on Hoth.
Although I can understand you having an affinity for Wedge, as the only survivor of both Death Star runs he certainly represents Victory.

I feel shame. But at least I know the glory of Wej Antilles and ELCs.
