God I was so on the Doherty hype. I thought we had the second coming of Chara.

I think it's probably better to say that he's not always totally honest in front of a camera/microphone...much like everyone else in the Sharks org.

I think he showed JJ and Robinson enough in training camp this year to feel confident about him going into next year.

Well Chara didn't make waves for a long time. He was terrible in his first few years.

Yeah, what I meant to say is that I don't trust anything Burke says to is as far as I can throw him.

You can usually figure things out based on vague comments from the rest but Burke straight up tells us false things.

Yeah but Chara was terrible in the NHL while Doherty is not terrible but not very good in the AHL.

Would it be better if Doherty were in the NHL right now being terrible? He's also been Worcester's most consistent d-man this season in my opinion so the 'not very good' assessment isn't accurate.

I don't know why anyone thought he was going to be a Chara aside from him being 6'7. Doherty continues to improve his game season to season, if he continues that trend I still see an NHL player, it's just going to take time.

Fair enough I haven't really watched him enough to make an argument; just when I have he hasn't been too great. That 2009 draft was pretty atrocious for us.

Pretty much every tall defenseman gets compared to Pronger or Chara for some reason. I think Doherty will be an NHL player as well.

Good point. It's one of the reasons I really dislike prospect / player comparisons, it tends to set unrealistic (or in many cases incorrect) expectations on prospects.

Victor Hedman or aka "The Swedish Pronger" except for the fact he plays nothing like him at all.

I've heard a few comparisons to Mike Rathje in size and in playing style.

At least that's fairly realistic.

Goodrow notches two (more).

Seems to be on a really good tear after being signed by Sharks.

Unfortunately Brodzinski didn't play. He's been in and out of the line up since returning from a leg injury.

TB has some really, really good goaltender prospects in their pipeline. Wilcox has had a ridiculous season.

I remember looking up his stats last season. Incredible. And a 6th rounder to boot.

It's kinda funny that Stalock was the first thing I thought of when I saw him play - quick, athletic, aggressive, good with the puck, it turns out they're cousins.

I've only seen highlights, but he looked good in them.

Could Doherty potentially be a guy who comes up to the big club, finds his niche and the light bulb suddenly turns on? that'd be noice

also, Goodrow's numbers are impressive, who cares about his age, skating and yada yada, If he can score like Pavelski or Couture, i'll be very happy

To both of those comments, I guess anything is anything is possible. However, it's really, really, really unlikely.

Well, in all fairness, Doherty is 100% better than he was last season...of course, that's not really saying anything.

Cornell won the first game of the ECAC tournament quarterfinals against Clarkson.

Joakim Ryan had the GWG.
