Tobias Rieder - 40 goals as a 4th rounder

I had no idea this guy was doing so well. Great read, and good to see more of Stu's picks look promising as ever.

Nice read but all I have to say is Peter Sarno.

I think Rieder has a legitimate shot to become a good player for us. He was a 4th rounder but was getting a lot of hype last year too and plays a hard game also for his size.

Hall - Nugent-Hopkins - Eberle
Paajarvi - Grigs/Galch - Rieder

Wouldn't mind that top 6 in a few years.

Good for him, really, but I wish that our physically bigger prospects were ripping it up too

That top-six would get eaten alive. Unless MPS becomes an unstoppable power forward like he does on NHL 12 (think I've mentioned that before).

I really doubt it would get eaten alive. In a few years that top line will be one of the best, if not the absolute best in the NHL.

good for a 4th rounder. package him up in a halak-type deal (obviously add a pick or something).

I'm just saying, we need to package quantity for quality now

Great to see, but I won't get too excited until we see him play in the AHL.

Agozzino on the Ice Dogs has scored 37,43 and 40 goals in the 3 years he's played since not being drafted at all. (he would have easily had 50 this year if he weren't on such a stacked team). But I can't see him ever playing more than a couple call up games in the NHL.... if THAT even happens.

I agree it's promising that he's tearing the OHL up, but until we see him in pro hockey I wouldn't get too excited.

Does anyone else get a vibe from this kid a-la pre-NHL Eberle? The scouting report (smart player, gets his points being in the right place at the right time, rounded skillset, not overly flashy, good [not great] skater, slightly undersized) seems to match pretty well.

I seem to remember after the draft I read somewhere that Stu had Rieder in his top 30.

Actually higher than that. Stauffer outright asked MacGregor and he said top 30.
The quote was about Gernat who was taken in the 5th round, so I'd have to assume Rieder was higher in the rankings.

This is what I've thought for awhile now. I'm not saying he'll get to Eberle's level or close although can you imagine...

Exactly what I had in mind. Drafting Grigo/Gally will give the Oilers this flexibility.

Pretty much how I feel. Regardless of how he plays in the CHL he's going to be behind 3-4 guy on the depth chart until he lights up the AHL.

He also had a hell of a supporting cast, as did Martindale. The next closest scorer to Rieder is 12 points behind him with 2 years more experience. Kid's got it going on

edit: Just to be clear about my previous comment, I don't see the upside in him that I see in Eberle - more so the playing style and overall skillset. Then again, I saw Eberle as a 2nd liner coming out of junior.

edit #2: Just realized I passed post 4000. How the hell have I posted 4000 times??

Go to elite prospects and look at the 18yr olds with .7goals per game in the OHL. Think Perry, Ryan, Spezza.......
