It was a tough year for Altshuller and the Generals.

Unfortunately, Altshuller battled consistency issues all season long and eventually lost his starting job to Kevin Baillie. That isn't to say that people have given up on him though. In fact, after replacing Baillie in the playoffs, I thought Altshuller played fantastic against the IceDogs and kept his team in a few games they had no business in being in. He's raw in every sense of the word, but he's got great size and athleticism in the net and appears to have a lot to work with. He'll need to improve his positioning and ability to harness rebounds. I found that he can be particularly beatable down low and in the five hole once you get him moving. But as this year's playoffs showed, it's too early to give up on his potential.
Just as we suspected, a big reach in the 3rd. Should've taken Maidens. Our 4th rounders were solid though.

Actually, this board was pretty pleased with the Boychuk pick. IIRC, some of the other boards I visited were the polar opposite though. Most of the posters here were very happy with the pick. A few posters had questions and/or didn't like the pick, but overall it was positive.

With Murphy and Andersen gone, our G prospect ranks look pretty soft. Anyone have any word on Matt Mahalak's development/potential?

You're absolutely right...forgot that I frequented TSB back then, that's the conversation I was remembering.

Funny that they were right, and you guys were wrong...so you know nothing about hockey....?

No idea on his potential, but he had a pretty damn good season last year. He was good enough to get Plymouth to platoon him with Wedgewood (Canada's WJC goalie) and actually put up better stats then Wedgewood. He's a lock to be the Whalers #1 next season baring a trade.

But don't we retain Murphy's rights even if he went to the KHL for a couple years?

Yeah, still doesn't help us if we need him in 2013-14 and he's under contract with Spartak though.

I think JustJoe is the undisputed winner of that thread saying he wished JR would take a chance on Erik Karlsson.

I think i was on the John Carlson train that year..... not nearly as good as picking Karlsson. Do i get bonus points for a homonym pick?

How about points for Dave G saying AJ Jenks and Jared Staal were potential 2nd/3rd round targets of the Canes. He wasn't right then, but eventually both ended up as Canes.

Most wanted Teubert but he was already picked. He hasn't been any more successful than Boychuk. I also like the post about wanting Buffalo to take Myers so that our forwards can skate circles around him.

I definitely looked foolish on Myers, but I just frankly never saw the hype for the guy. Seemed like he lacked any kind of hockey sense to me, but obviously that wasn't the case.

In fairness, all of us have been wrong at one point or another in our assessment of picks. The thing is, guys like you (and a few others) have more insight to a lot of draftees and thus put your opinions out there a lot more than the rest of us, so you're going to have more chances to be wrong than I would.

The dude has crazy size for a 17 year old, if he fills out a bit more, and develops some consitency could wind up being a steal.

Altshuller is gonna be a good pick. He is extremely raw, extremely big and extremely dedicated and very hard-working. I know Ottawa was going to pick him 76th if he was still available. He will be a player for Carolina one day. Really good guy as well, I think he could end up being a real steal.
