Just because...

There seems to be little action on the board. I'll ask a question. Are Gagner and Kane the best 1-2 punch in the OHL right now? If not, then who? Note: Not talking about potential (which might work in their favour, or draft history/status (ahem B. Ryan)

I think that Kane and Gagner are the bomb.

Ugh.

But to answer the question, yes. They are quite something.

I have watched them 19 games this year and yah they can be special but still have times when they are not. Kane/ Gagner, Musak/ Pyatt, Emmerton/ Hughes all three make a pretty good one two punch.

If Peterborough was a better team you could argue Downie-Ryder is a pretty lethal combination.

Kane/Gagner
Ryan/Lewis
Halischuk/Azevedo
Doig/ ?
Torquato/ ?
Stamkos/Kell
Tlutsy/Thornton
Brophey/Neal
Mursak/O Marra
Voakes/Snetsinger
Owens/Bass
Caria/Donati
Hughes/Lynes
Foligno/Didiomete
Little/Tremblay
Emmerton/Hughes
Snow/Beleskey
Couture/McGinn
Downie/Ryder
Tavares/Clutterbuck

I would say the top 5 are:

Gagner/Kane
Ryan/Lewis
Mursak/ O Marra
Little/Tremblay
Downie/Ryder

From there it's anyone's guess. Gagne and Kane have been dynamite but I could easily see them wearing down in the second half, most rookies do.

Emmerton/Hughes/Stewart is a one-two-three.

Agreed, especially since Hunter doesn't ride his horses or anything>

Yeah, Donati should be up there. I knew I'd miss someone doing it off the top of my head.

Still a pretty good list. It would be nice to shop off that list.

May as well add in another pair who are heating up.

Yes your reading this right > Adam Perry / Kostitsyn

Perry notched five goals in the last couple of games and Sergei looks to be heating up finally maybe just now getting over his return to Junior.

These two could be up some big numbers by March.

Somebody on the board laughed at me last year when I said Perry would get 30-40 w/ the Knights this year. I'm too lazy to look it up and do an I told you so, but looks like he's headed that way!

gotta love how sarnia wasn't featured there, Gomes/Stamkos, Kell/Stamkos Reed/Pospisil all could be up there with some of them not top 5 and probably not even top 10 but they're up there, how is Mursak/O'marra 3rd? did they click instantly when O'Marra got traded?

That is a good pairing.

While not as strong defensively as Staal (but few are!), I'll throw Kindl and Weber from Kitchener out there.

The top 5 aren't in order. If you admit Sarnia aren't at a top 5 level why are you arguing that they weren't featured?

Mursak and O Marra are in the top 5 because having watched them I find them to be two of the top forwards ijn the OHL.

I didn't factor in chemistry. Thornton and Marleau are a great 1-2 punch who don't play together.

And I'll throw out Parent and Doughty.

Top defensive defenseman and a top offensive defenseman. I love it!

It's no laughing matter anymore toomanymen and I remember something about that a little. Think it was joked upon quite a bit but yes he is moving inn that direction sitting at 19.

And he scores in bunches so often if they have a good night he can grab 2 or 3 like nothing. Sitting around the circle all night like he should will get you plenty of smack ins.

Damn... you win. It doesn't get much better than that on a 1-2 punch.

A new 1-2 forward team should be added to the list:

Kitchener - Halischuk/Tsimikalis

http://www.kitchenerrangers.com/NewsStory.aspx?ID=940
Kitchener, ON: Rangers Head Coach/General Manager Peter DeBoer announced this morning that the team has signed centre Peter Tsimikalis.

Now excuse me while I go back to doing a happy dance...

Played with Ottawa and Oshawa, spent the first part of this year in the AHL. I don't know how Deboer got him, but it's a heck of a pickup for the price (free!).
