Brandon Shea

Ok, first this kid gets out of Moncton because they did not give him top 6 minutes all year. He gets traded to Quebec and now we hear that he has left the team for a period of reflection. The remparts went with a 11 forward line up recently and he was a healthy scratch. Is this a 1st round pick gone wrong or did we not develop him as we should have........

Well it's odd, but apparently Shea's father has pushed him very hard throughout the years..

It's not a development problem , it's a bad pick. He's obviously not cut out for the league's work ethics. Moncton and Quebec are two of the best run and most profesional teams in the CHL. Some picks are good , others don't work. It's unfortunate because he has the skill and potential but lacks work ethic and wants better treatment because he's an American player. Shea is a player that should be forgotten about.

Meh, I think he's been pushed too hard.

He's probably lost his passion for the game.

you can teach kids lots of things, but, you can't teach them to love playing hockey everyday. Obviously this kid is not up to the grind of being a hockey player.
A very smart agent once said : Some kids grow up wanting to play hockey, some kids grow up wanting to be hockey players. There is a huge difference between these two. Its a lot of work. you can have the best talent in the world, but, it will only make a difference if the work ethic matches the talent.

and you are 100% right, some picks are good, some picks are bad. The wildcats are lucky they still get a pick back from the remparts. Doesnt matter which pick...at least they got something back!

Putting a point per game but by the looks of it, that's not that great in that league.

The EJHL is a big step below the USHL. It is closer to the NAHL in talent level. The EJHL may have 5-10 high end players but the rest are poor.

Correct me if I'm wrong , but isn't the MHL more competitive?

Well....Charlie Coyle was drafted in the 1st round out this loop. It's where the Mooseheads would have seen Jack Eichel too. It's also where Cape Breton found Hrabrenka, but I won't use that one to make any opinion.

My guess is that it's probably significantly better than the MHL. Lots of guys moving on to NCAA. I'm sure there are also a lot of former New England High School hockey stars with borderline retarded (sorry) SAT scores riding out their junior eligibility making the league reasonably competitive.

hard to judge the fall...only one team had created any real hype around this player.

What I was basically saying is that more than just Moncton hyped that kid. As NHL scouts see something in him too

I guess this guy just has all the tools but no tools box.

So yeah, probably that talent alone he has enough of it to figure on those list.

But as a whole-package, i wonder how he can be put on a list.

I agree, but the most important things is that he's happy.
