OT Van Riemsdyk Ranked #2 by ISS (merged)

Don't know if this was noted, but another NJ kid is projected to go high in the draft. He played for CBA (not sure for how many years) and is now on the US U18 Team. It looks like he signed a letter of intent with UNH.

As a CBA Alum, I think it's pretty great to see. Will he be another Sanguinetti and end up in NYR Blue?

He's a really nice kid, too. Not very cocky. Down to earth, etc. He'll be challanging for #1 soon enough and is going to be a star in the NHL.

Good Luck. I really doubt this kid falls past 6, even though it is a "deep" draft. If the Rangers Fall that bad in the Standings, then you have your chance.

Played with him for 3 years. Cant wait to tell people that I played with him.

Still go to CBA. Hey sling, does CBA pay off in the long run? Did it make College easy?

Great hands (best asset), great skating, great shot,(Wrist, Slap, and Snap), and great size. Reminds me of Mario L. Needs to put on more weight, and needs to hit a little more.

I wouldn't say it made it easy, but you're prepared to handle any work load thrown your way.

And in the future, as you meet other guys who went there, you find that they help each other in any way they can. No matter the year you graduated, everyone who went there shares a common experience. And everyone ran the Freshman Run.

he was ranked in the 15-16 range early ..I was hoping we'd have a great shot at him if he didn't light it up this year ... looks like the latter happened.

I pretty much agree with all of those things. I played against him a few times over the summer, and 2 years back when I played Midgets. Hes got really good hands with good vision and can make awesome passes. I think he played at CBA for only 1 year, possibly 2. He was on the U17 team before the U18 team, and before that in New Jersey he played midget U18 AA for brick.

Totally agree. I watched him play and played against him a few times in some local tournaments YEARS ago. The kid is the real deal. From the time he was younger you could tell he was gonna be good. But I never thought this good until I saw him play for CBA many, many times.

His skating and hands and mental game are all INCREDIBLE.

He sees the ice just so damn well. It's really impressive. I can't wait to see him in the NHL.

Jersey Shore hockey represent!

I heard he will finish all four years at College before going to the NHL, unless he is offered a multimillion dollar contract.

I just think that it's preety amazing to see a kid grow up on the Jersey shore, learn his hockey in local programs (for the most part) and become such a prospect.

He didn't leave to develop in Canadian Junior or anything.

The only challange he faces is just how deep the draft is.

There is a TON of potential in this draft and more than anything it's going to come down to team opinions (similar to what I said in 2003).

While PERSONALLY I think he will go #1/2 in the draft, I think he will only slide out of the top 5 if at all due to preference. He's the most physically gifted player in the draft, IMO, and still has boat loads of potential.

I also might be biased.

Well I like what I've seen so far.

The question that I think you'll see is about competition and using his size.

You'd almost like to see him develop along the lines of a Rick Nash type.

But I think so much is preference.

Couture (in my eyes) doesn't necessarily have the highest offensive ceiling compared to the other guys (not that he is lacking by any stretch) but is probably the most well rounded.

To me Van Riemsdyk reprents more of the balance a little bit. He's closer to the top offensive guys, but plays the better overall game but has the size that Couture doesn't.

Right now I'd probably take him third. There are still some unknowns about him that I'd need to see more of. But he's also potentially one of the players you remember from this draft 10 years from now.

I think his hockey smarts and hands put him above a guy like Couture right now.

JVR might be the smartest player in the entire draft.

No doubt. In the "Save Pittsburgh" NHL, I am sure that somehow they will be awarded another top-5 pick.

Now on that I disagree.

I like JVR, but Couture has shown me more against higher levels of competition.

Couture does a little bit of everything and does it well. I think JVR has the higher offensive potential, but Couture at a young age has shown himself to be a very complete player against many of the top prospects in all of hockey.

I think this just goes to show how far NJ hockey as a whole has come along in recent years. We have some home grown talent that is making it into the D1 ranks and possibly even the NHL. Allthough I don't think its even in question for Reimsdyk, and Sanguinetti just a matter of when they get there.

I went to CBA in 1999 for my freshman year of high school. I transfered when I moved back to Summit after that. I could never get over the fact that they had no football program, the lax team sucked, and the soccer team was school pride.....it was a great school though
