When will Marcin Kolusz play?

This guy is amazing, being one of the Wilds top prospects, and part of the Polish National Team.
Just curious.

he dissapointed in the CHL, for vancouver giants of the WHL i believe...i believe he went back to europe and the wild have pretty much cut ties with him.

He's not considered a top prospect. Never was..

Agree with Chris...I'm hoping Madsen and Sprunger don't turn out like Kolusz.

Was always wondering where he went.

I believe Kolusz is playing in Poland and that right there is the kiss of death. You do not pop right out of their domestic league and into the NHL.

Which he is not. He was terrible in the WHL. He would probably be an average ECHL player in North America.

I like his play, but agree that he has to improve.
Would die to see him on the Wild.

Bump.
No, looks like he is playing in the Czech League to sharpen up his skills for the Wild.

By improving... I assume you mean he actually needs to learn how to play hockey? He was one of the worst WHL imports I have ever seen play.

I guess, Polish hockey is crap compared to hockey in NA. Czech hockey isn't much better but its defiently a jump forward.

I just don't see him ever, ever, ever being a NA pro at all. He couldn't even cut it in juniors.

True, but you never know.
He was thought playing the basic weaker way of hockey.
The WHL was a good experiance for him, and his english.
Now he saw where he is, and after finding out to being a prospect for the Wild, just motivated him more. Going to Czech to play and slowly get his "North American Hockey" Groove.

Just like Mariusz Czerkawski, back when the Bruins drafted, he wasn't any much of a pro. He knew that, and so he went to Sweden to sharpen his skills for the NHL level. Even with that, he still wasn't complety good at the NHL level. That changed as he played more.

Kolusz instead of going to another good euro country league to play, picked to go to WHL and see how the NA hockey plays there. During the season he had his doubts on if he should stay, but his team mates incouraged him to stay. So he made a plan, play till the season ended. Get picked as a prospect, and from that go to europe to fix his flaws. Thanks to the WHL, he saw his flaws and saw where he went wrong and know he can fix it. Sure the Czechs are over his level of play, but he can handle them unlike the WHL.

Kolusz wants to make it, and his is following his plan throughout.
Even if he gets accepted and is required to play for the Wild the next game, he will surely deny as he will decide if he is ready or not. Seeing as he knows the layer of competion there.

Edit: Found an old article on Kolusz, and how the Wild loved his play and could see he has skill. http://www.bchockey.com/article_deta...2&Team_No=3667
"After six games, he was among the WHL’s top 10 in rookie scoring with 2-4-6."
