If any player can be labelled a "top 6 or bust" type, it's probably Reway. IMO.

It's so funny come to think about it. People went nuts over the 2012 haul and were pretty meh on the 2013 one. Gregoire didn't have an outstanding year but I'm still holding out hope for him.

I'd say that's fair.

Let's all do the Bergevin:

1) Bring several promising offensive prospects to training camp (Carr, Andrighetto, Hudon, Lekonen, Reway)
2) Don't sign any relevant top 9 players
3) "We want to make room for our prospects to play"
4) ?????? (Therrien?)
5) All lines filled with grinders, prospects in AHL/Europe to learn to be better people
6) End of year press conference: "This is a development year"
7) Desharnais wins Jacques Beauchamp Trophy just because

2012 is meh draft in insight. Galchenyuk and Hudon are the only NHL players out of 7 picks (and 2 second round picks).

2013 could produce 5 or 6 NHLers out of 8. Could be the best draft since 2007.

Thank you.

I haven't watched any of Slovakia's games at the Worlds, but for a skilled player his certainly doesn't have much of a stat line there... one assist in 7 games. Can anyone comment on his play or usage there to explain this?

I also noticed he is "officially" listed at 5' 10" now. He was listed at 5' 8" when he was drafted 3 years ago, and I saw him up close enough times on the Gatineau Olympiques that year to think that was optimistic by at least an inch or two. Has he really grown that much since he was 18?

I'm excited for the arrival of Reway and Lehkonen, but this team is turning back into the Midget Habs.

I am sorry to say but I agree with the poster who said with Gallagher already on board, we only have room for 1 more smallish player. Not counting Pleks...

To me, Andrighetto shouldnt be part of this team. There are better players than him in the org.

It sucks for Hudon, but I don't think there is a spot for him either.

Three small veterans that we need to ditch are Desharnais, Flynn and Byron. It sucks, but it's reality.

Our 4th line needs to be bigger/meaner. I wouldnt mind starting McCarron on the 4th line and let him get used to the NHL there. Promote him from time to time when there are injuries to our main forwards.

Well, good luck to you guys with him...Sparta did not want him anymore, Fribourg did not want him. I hope that NHL coaching staff can handle his mental issues and lack of effort.

He'll never be a checker, but today's 3rd lines are more offensive than ever. I don't think it's farfetched to say he could play on an offensive oriented 3rd line with 'say Desharnais and Hudon.

That's just not true. There was no one at Fribourg who said that.

Reway is a left winger and with Galchenyuk going to play Center all season.

We have a big spot for Reway on the top 6. He could be tried there.

Hi, I already commented on that in the Euro prospect thread. He was mediocre, played first line and first pp unit (what he always wanted in Sparta but did not get because of his defensive play and inconsistent effort). He was -4 in +/- after three games I believe. He was quite good in the last game vs USA though, created some good chances for himself. He also had some arguments on the bench with his linemates, Andrej Sekera had to solve it there. Slovak fans were disappointed with him because he was glorified as their leader before the WC.

I've been saying for a while now we're going to be in a pickle when Andrighetto, Reway and Hudon are all graduating at the same time if we still have Gallagher and Desharnais on the team.

I'm not at all a proponent for size over skill but there's just no way we can keep all those guys in a top 6 (or top 9) and remain competitive. It just doesn't add up. Hudon I think is a keeper (Desharnais I wish was gone yesterday but I digress), but I would definitely peddle Andrighetto and Reway to try and shore up some other areas we're lacking in our prospect depth.

Fair enough depending on how defensively reliable you want your third line to be. But yeah, "offensive player or bust" I guess.

I remember shortly after the draft, seeing Reway videos of him with some Slovakian team and I started thinking player for player that this draft would be better than 2012.

Everyone just seemed to have legit NHL potential. Obviously we still have to wait and see but you really can't go by what the critics say. Just like how according to hf we're #17 or something so people just assume our prospect pool's pretty miserable.

I'll stand firm in saying that it's the best it's been in years. The next few years we'll see if I'm right.

That would be a damn small 3rd line.

Reway would immediately be one of our best PP options.. The rest of his game needs work though.

Yes all ELC's are two way. it's based off age, so if he had waited till he was say 25 he wouldn't have needed to sign an ELC.

It's certainly shaping up to be a heck of a draft class for us, which we sorely need after the struggles of the '08, '09, and '12 drafts.

yes, his defensive game is very weak. He's more of a PP specialist until he proves otherwise.

I didn't watch any WC games, the only thing I can add is that he was rumored to have had a concussion, he only appeared in 1 game since Jan 23rd before the WC's.

I don't know if he's 5'10 or not, I will say he did look like he added some weight when I saw him in the Czech league this year.

There's really no pickle. DD will likely be bought out. Pleks only has 2 years left. You can still trade them. They're decent assets.

Surely, Reway's question mark is his 5 on 5 play but mostly his work ethic/attitude and so on. While Lehkonen is how he translates his success in the NHL. Some question marks...but that should be answered fast. Can't wait.
