OK, so this means he's gonna be a 4th liner, I guess.

He and Crisp are the prospects from this draft that I think have what it takes to make it.

Why people are writing off McCarron right away? The guy displayed great potential. He's just obviously raw

McCarron + Andrighetto absolutely could. Lehkonen and Reway are longshots, but if they do, watch out. And Fucale, obviously. That was one great draft for the Habs.

Lehkonen is not a longshot by any mean. In my mind he's a better prospect than Collberg was. He has concussion issues, but he's a top prospect in his own right.

He's not a top prospect league-wide though. He could certainly make it, but I'd rather temper my expectations and just be cautiously optimistic about him.

If Lehkonen didn't have a concussion or even had a couple of pounds more (10-15+) he would have been drafted in the 1st round. He's a special player.

This draft was absolutely sick. McCarron, Crisp and De La Rose! Can't wait for those players to hit the NHL!

Yeah, a lot of people were surprised that Lehkonen took that long to be drafted.

Since he was moved to center he showed a lot of promise.

I'm still not thrilled at all with the thought of Lefebvre coaching this kid, or any prospect for that matter.

Hopefully JDLR works out for us!

Let's just say that the level of his progess, if I have been informed right, are actually damn impressive.

It's nice to see a young man working his ass off and actually developing. It honestly gives me hope for his future; as he'll constantly try to get better as he will progress up the various hockey levels and inevitably hit harder competition.

Not sure who informed you or what they informed you with, but big mac was probably one of our most disappointing prospects this year.

And in the games I watched, he was far from "working his ass off". No one is saying he's a bust but this year was not an impressive year for him.

I'm indifferent at this moment in time. There were enough flashes to remian intrigued.

However, much like Tinordi improved in year 2 of the OHL. I am going to need to see the same from McCarron.

Yes he had shoulder issues.

Tinordi struggled in his first year of OHL hockey as well... Another big body that hadn't played that type of schedule before, and he seems to be one of our better players.

McCarron will be better next year, and if he follows a similar career progression, we will be quite happy with having a blue chip power forward prospect in a few years.

Playing for the Hunter's will help him be fundamentally sound.... His own work ethic will determine how far he goes, he has all the tools he needs to be succeed.

Thing's report, in the prospect thread, actually talked about how McCarron went from a disastrous start of the season to much more improvement almost across all boards.

He's far from saying that McCarron is flashing it out there, but he acknowledge the progress the kid has made so far this year. Which is good enough for me. As long as his progression curve doesn't slow down.

Crisp - De La Rose - McCarron
Tinordi - Subban



...now that's a line...

Nice! I could really see DLR making the team next season playing with Eller and Bourque.

McCarron, Crisp, not just yet.

oh god just imagine how much better an NHL ready DLR would be for those 2 than Gionta.

him and Eller on the same line would just be too much.

IT sure would. But I thought we hoped DLR to be a centre?

I've seen the Tinordi to McCarron comparison often and I think there is a fundamental flaw in it. Even as Tinordi was struggling in the OHL, he was struggling to play as his team's top defenseman (or 2nd best one depending on your opinion of Scott Harrington at the time). He was having difficulty with playing one of the most difficult assignments on a team.

McCarron on the other hand, struggled with even being a supporting player for London. He wasn't even holding down a job in London's top nine forwards at points in this season. There is a considerable difference between having trouble being a team's #1 defenseman and having trouble with being their 3rd line RW. One asks you to be one of your team's star players, the other just requires you to be an average player.

So sure McCarron may have made massive improvements, but you have to consider how far behind the curve he was. Your typical 18 year old prospect that went in the top 50 of the draft is one of the centerpieces of his team if he plays in the CHL, even the projects.
