Yeah he's not exactly gotten better since his solid playoff run during his draft year.

McEneny with a G and A so far, he's starting to pick up momentum in the offensive department. 0.5 ppg this season.

There are some prospects who are doing far better than Honzik.

Travis Ewanyk
Daniel Catenacci
Anthony Camara
Nick Shore
Josh Leivo (Corrado teammate)
Kyle Rau
Jordan Binnington (Goalie)
Logan Shaw

All guys having positive contributions on their teams and half of them just played in the WHL/OHL select games.

Corrado with a PP assist as Sudbury ties their game with Sarnia...Wish I could watch, I'd imagine he's matching up against Galchenyuk.

Just looked them up, and I gotta say I agree. In fact I'd rather have taken a chance on Tvrdon instead who was still available, if none of the above were still there.

I guess I came off as saying he was still a good pick, I was just stating that there wasn't a can't miss pick in that round. Those guys are good but I don't think many are going to do much in the NHL (just like Honzik).

Ryan Murray dislocated his shoulder last night. Corrado's chances of making the WJC just went up.

How bad is it in terms of recovery time/long-term effects?

If that affects his career it would only be fitting as a Columbus BJ prospect. Those guys never catch any breaks.

Former jouneyman Canuck Alexandre Bolduc is lighting it up in the AHL. Where did this offensive came from?

Re McNally's game against Cornell on Friday, from the USCHO fan board Harvard forum:

"Of all our D, I thought McNally played the best overall game. Yes he had some giveaways but he was all over the ice and in the offensive zone, he wasn't afraid to take chances especially on our first goal. If he can continue to play that way, he'll develop into a Top 4 D. Biega ate minutes and was very good in his own end but McNally just seemed to have an extra jump in his step last night."

McNally seems to be paired with freshman Desmond Bergin this year, instead of All-American senior captain Danny Biega. This is based on a report from one game only, so it may be incorrect or only temporary. Plus-three with 1 assist against Cornell; 3 points in 6 games this year. Possibly the change of partners has affected his scoring a bit, although most of his points last year came on the PP.

Looks like Price scored against McNally and Bergin (D pairing) as Colgate beat Harvard 1-0.

Price got the goal, and McNally / Bergin are -1 on the game, along with Vesey's red-hot freshman line.

Seems like a pretty good use of contract slot so far. Any idea how his defensive game is?

I don't understand it fully but guys with more experience will always get pushed up to the top lines even if there play doesn't deserve it. Jensen is not really being outplayed by anyone on his team, he's just a rookie therefor he gets demoted. That's all there really is to it.
Yeah, playing time doesn't seem to reflect the actual quality of play of the young players. Collberg barely gets any icetime despite having a very good talent level.

Sounds like McEneny is as advertised. Offensive d-man who'll start slow due injury who is now putting up points finally.

The signing was just so weird. I didn't know anything about him at the time and every one was saying he was offensive guy when he barely had any stats to refer to on HockeyDB.

Ben Hutton is off to a pretty good start - 1g, 3a in his first 11 games with U. of Maine.

As for McEneny, how much of an offensive defenceman is he when he hasn't scored a goal in over 2 years? Certainly his combination of skating, IQ and good passing is promising enough, but is he really just a slightly more offensively-instinctual version of Tanev but also without a good shot from the point?

I really have no idea what's up with the kid's statistical history. I know he lost a year last year to injury, but even before that things are weird.

His defensive game is further ahead than his offensive... from the people I've talked to.

Are any of those guys actually going to make an impact at the nhl level......

Goalies have different trajectories and Honzik at the time was considered a steal of a goalie prospect by goalie guild. He was dominant in his playoff series that year.

I'm still confused with McEneny - if he was still eligible for the next draft, shouldn't hebe unable to sign with an NHL team?

Same deal as Tochkin. There's a window in the summer for teams to sign players that went undrafted.

My suggestion is going to the OHL board & talking to Ranger fans. They were nice enough to give up some info if you ask nice enough!
