Would that be the USCHO boards btw? Pretty neat forum for finding out more about college hockey teams... I really should lurk moar to be honest.

I also have to wonder what the Canucks brass thinks of the situation in Wisconsin, if they may subtly suggest to Labate that his development might be better handled by another organization?
I thought it's usually a common occurrence for seniors to be traded from a team that's going poorly to a contender to give them a chance to win, no? It'd be interesting to see how much his numbers jump on a good team that can score.

As for U of Wisconsin, I've always heard Eaves had a good program at that school... why is that not the case anymore, other than the changes they made to the way they're playing this year? Or was it always just a good D-man factory?

Yes mostly USCHO, just discovered it, it's really cool The OHL subforum on here is good for checking up on our 3 O kids too.

The UW fans seem to be split on firing Eaves. I mean their top 2 players are out right now, but it sounds like the team is just showing no signs of life.

I'm not sure how Labate would be able to go to another organization. I suppose you might be suggesting that he could go to the CHL, but at this point I think he's already 19, so that ship has pretty much sailed.

That's what I meant, yeah. Fast tracking him through the O. I'm sure that's a pipe dream though, he's set on going to college, which I won't fault him for. Would just be fun to have a 6'4" forward prospect in the O.

He'd be silly not to goto college. He's still a long shot to have any sort of relevant NHL career, he might as well have a Plan B while working towards a Plan A.

College is also ideal for him to grow into his frame. The workouts they do there and the schedule help you put on weight even during a season, as opposed to junior where you're more likely to lose weight during a season.

Watched Morgan Reilly play the Victoria Royals tonight. Shows great skating ability and offensive smarts, but was a bit of a puck hog and made dipsy doodles instead of getting it deep.

Moose Jaw was down 3-1 in the third until Reilly made two terrific plays on the 2nd and 3rd goals—showed why he was a 5th overall pick.

I've seen Reilly play a few times (SSS, Friday Night Hockey) and he seems like a bit of a puck hog. Also have seen him stay out on the ice for large spans of time. Nothing to fret over, he's still a great player.

He's obviously the best player on the team (a middling team at best), and I could see him getting frustrated when his team-mates weren't receiving his passes, etc. that he started just taking it in himself. He'll have to make some adjustments at the pro level but he was definitely a difference maker tonight.

You know in Wayne's World, when Wayne is at the guitar store looking to by "excalibur" and he starts of 'Stairway to Heaven' and they won't let him play it...can we turn this thread into a No Morgan Rielly zone?

I can't go into any thread anywhere on this site without hearing about him. He's a very good prospect, with other worldly skating skills, a pretty solid 1st pass, but Im just tired of hearing about him.

thanks.

How about we compare and discuss prospects ability

Like who are out

Fastest skater: likely Sweatt
Hardest shot: Connaugton
Hardest hitter: ? Archinald, Mallet
Best defenseman
Best winger
Best goal scorer
Penalty kill
Power play
Goalie style types

There are a lot more prospects out there in our systems besides the ones most people know about but where does Beattie fall into as far as skill goes

Perhaps a top three in the categories like speed : sweatt Schroeder then ?

Hardest shot would be Corrado, actually. Hardest hitter is probably Mallet or Kassian, then behind them Archibald.

Best d-man is Tanev if he counts, ohterwise Corrado or Connauton.
Hardest hitter is probably Kassian.
Best winger IMO Kassian, but Jensen is close.

I think Schroeder is next fastest behind Sweat. Probably has the best vision as well.

Jensen would definitely be the best goal scorer. And he'd probably be close behind Kassian for best winger.

Do we have a specialist type coming up in the mold of Hansen

Who would be the fore runner in the elite fourth liner legit third liner role player

Personally streaming the wolves games so far I would say pinnizotto is gaining favour

Technically not a prospect but could be consider one

Anybody else? Gaunce?

Possibly Mallett. I used to think Friesen could fill that role but it sounds like he's struggling at the AHL level.

A goal and an assist for Corrado tonight. I'm assuming that's what you meant but wasn't clear since goal is a point too.

He's a beauty. I officially booked a couple days off for the WJ team training camp in a couple weeks, he better be there!

He reminds me of Kris Letang and PK Subban with the way he skates up ices with the puck. All the media are drooling over his skill set but whether or not he can make the next step is if he can adjust his game to fit the NHL, which Subban has had trouble with and Letang has done quite well.

Sorry, this is the no Morgan Reilly zone.
