If he can just transition that game to the NHL, he could be a bona fide 1C in a few years.

Speed, size, skill, good shot, vision and leadership. What more do you want? Looks like he won't be joining St. John's for a playoff run this year, so looks like he'll get more time to hit the gym, which is good. Just hope for the best.

If Barrie happens to get upset in the first round Scheifele could still come up for the final 9+ games for the IceCaps, and with the complete lack of depth down there right now he would get many more quality minutes than he saw late last season with the IceCaps...

Jets announce that University of Michigan defenceman and Jets draft pick Jacob Trouba has been named to the 2013 CCHA All-Rookie Team.
Good way to start Trouba! All the buzz may be about Mark b/c he's tearing it up right now. But gotta remember that Trouba has been very impressive this year as well.

Which begs the question; would it be better experience to go on a Memorial Cup run, or get a handful of games on the Rock? I honestly don't know.

I highly doubt Kingston or Mississauga will be able to upset Barrie.

Definitely a memorial cup run. There is nothing better than winning a championship.

Memorial Cup, no question. Leading a top junior team through a long playoff grind towards a championship beats a handful of meaningless games on a bad AHL team any day, and lots of players look back on Memorial Cup wins as a top moment of their careers. A long playoff run for Barrie would be an awesome experience for him.

While I agree that it would be better to develop his leadership in a championship scenario, I think that the play in the AHL is more like the play in the NHL so it could be better for his game to play against AHL teams. Bigger players, more defence, better goaltending etc. It would be more relevant experience in terms of the style/caliber of play. Devil's advocate.

If Jaffray's account of some guys on St. John's mailing it in for the rest of the year is correct (likely), that's not a place I'd want him going when the alternative could be a Memorial Cup run.

Yeah...

If there was no suspected attitude issues going on than I would say even on a crappy team I'll take the highest quality of competition bar none... but that adds a whole new layer to it. I think I'd might agree.

It's nice to have two high grade A-list prospects in Scheifele and Trouba, and a very good grade B-list prospect in Lowry. It's certainly something to look forward to. Hopefully Telegin can develop nicely out on The Rock.

Agreed. You have to love Mark's attitude and commitment. I really believe this kid will reach the upper limit of his potential, whatever that my be. There is little doubt he will be in a Jets jersey for years to come.

Not terribly surprising but Scheifele is the OHL player of the week (March 4 to 10).

Not surprising at all. I mean, is there anything he can't do? He's even said multiple times that he'll play y'know goalie if that's what the team needs

Of course! He would still be a playmaker deep down.

As the Guelph Storm’s leading scorer and engine behind the team’s top line, Scott Kosmachuk provides a dynamic offensive presence, particularly in the attacking zone. Kosmachuk’s offensive talent is driven by strong puck skills and the ability to execute with very little time and space. Kosmachuk thrives in corners and crowded ice and is able to maintain the Storm’s offensive zone presence by either stickhandling his way out or by firing a pass to a linemate. While playmaking is a strength, finishing plays comes naturally as well – two traits evident when observing Kosmachuk perform during powerplays. Kosmachuk can be effective when the game becomes gritty and he is able to offer a strong presence in the slot. While not a two-way forward in the traditional sense, Kosmachuk’s quickness with his stick allows him to be effective without the puck as well. Developing a larger identity in the defensive zone would provide the Storm with a more potent transition game.
