Andrew White should be picked in the first 2 rounds. He is playing JR A in Pembroke ONT though. He tore up the U17's on Team ATL.

That is the only kid from NFLD who has a shot at being a top pick. There are a few others who will be picked in rounds 4-15.

More than likely. 19th overall or 20th overall (Which ever pick St. John's will have) is about the area i expect him to be picked.

What other Newfoundland kids would you expect? I figure they will at least take
6!

i hope the fog devils don't take newfoundlanders just because of where they were born. it will be good to have a couple, but they have to be able to play.

i have no faith in andrew mckim to do this job.

They will take the best players available early on. Late rounds youll see more local guys. But even so...they can invite all the Newfs to camp if they want, the ones that werent picked.

Frankie,

There are a few kids that would be capable of playing at the QMJHL level if given the chance. Quite obviously, they would have to go through the "rookie" phase and work their way up but given a chance, some of them would definitely progress nicely.

i'm sure that's true. still, i hope they just take the players who they think are the best, regardless of where they are from.

In regards to the no faith in Andrew McKim, why do you think Dobbin would pick McKim over Glenn Stanford? Real Paiement was in St. John's the week end and was at the AAA Leafs game I heard. Heard he was there to look at a couple of kids.
Any word out there on who?

dobbin picked mckim over stanford for money reasons. and i think dobbin wanted to cut all ties with the st.john's maple leafs.

i have no idea who paiement was looking at. i didn't even know he was here.

One would think Travis Coles will be taken. He might not be huge, but he's improved leaps and bounds over last year as a defensive defenseman and is a consummate leader.

Tavis Coles? He is already in the Q and i doubt CHI will unprotect him.

I'm an idiot. I didn't read very closely and thought we were talking about the NHL Draft.

LOL no worries

Coles is a long shot for an NHL pick. He is 5'10 and not playing that much with CHI who have a very young d group.

....and what about jake lewis hes not a goalie but he is one of the best players newfoundland has he did get scouted last year by a prep school in chicago but thast only because he played for team newfoundland in the atlantic challenge cup!! not becasue of a tournment here in newfoundland. Oh and on the 3rd on february my high school hockey team is going to the confederation cup in st johns there are teams all over canada goign to it and youd think there will be scouts there?? i hope so because of the fog devils is in st johns and its a big opportunity for the onwers. there is a few teams from ontario like 20 or 30 from newfoundland 4 or 5 from nova scotia 2 from pei and a few from new brunswick as well!

That's the key to hockey unfortunately - it is to leave the province ie Team Newfoundland to be looked at. The worst part of that is you need to leave the island more than once to be really noticed. There are scouts here now and they have been here for years. Their niche is the AAA teams - Scott Gordon, Don Roche, Steve Bishop, Steve Callahan, Andrew McKim, Corey Crocker, etc. Confederation Cup is a scouted tournament because these people will be there. Also, now that Andrew McKim is involved with the St. John's Fog Devils, he and his team of scouts (Bob Johnson - ex NHL scout), will more than likely be there too. I have been around hockey circles for the last ten years in this province and I have never heard of these two goalies nor have I heard of Jake Lewis so I guess it is highly unlikely that people on the mainland have heard hey. Actually, up until this year (and I don't know what his capacity is this year) but Walter Lewis (he lives in Grand Falls) is the scout for the Halifax Mooseheads. By the way, just to let you know, Confederation Cup male section is comprised of 32 teams - two from Ontario,
maybe six - eight from Nova Scotia and our own teams.

Do you mean to tell me that Greg has only played 5 games and 2 tournament games and AJ has played 3 and 2. I hate to say this but some kids are playing upwards to 30 games a season.
