Thanks for the article. 5 of our top 15 prospects are goalies. I say we trade them all. Okay that probably isn't realistic.

When are Hughes and Borer expected to make an NHL roster?

Daniel Manzato had a poor defense in front of him. They were 2nd last this season. He basically saved Basel from relegation as he had 2 shutouts in that best of 7 series.

He played for the Swiss National Team and did VERY well. Actually he's in training camp for the upcoming World Champs in Moskwa.

Hughes sure has progressed alot. I'm pretty sure he was a 7.0 C before.

overall a great job. i think that we, like everyone else here, tend to be generous at our projections at times. i dont know about guys like carson being top four dmen, or all the others listed that way. i think we'll be lucky to get borer to that level. hughes as a top line center also so seems tobe a bit of a stretch, id be happy if he made to third line role. we've been lucky with fourth rounders in the past, though. still a great list.

whatever happened to risto korhonen? kid sounded like a laymans ulf samuelson. has he really dropped off the map or are the canes doing their, "euro's........what euros?"..thing?

id be surprised if we see borer next year, we have so many d there really is no rush unless he flat out beats guys to a spot. he really needs a little seasoning at least offensively to round out his game. he is likely strong and mobile enough to play soon, but in todays game and lavis system i would think he needs to smooth out the rough edges with the puck.

i dont know about hughes, i think our 3/4 line center spots are wide open and some young fresh legs wouldnt go amiss at all - but making a jump to pro seems a bit overboard. i dont know if he's old enough to go to the ahl so it may be the nhl or junior.

He was, I picked him up in a fantasy keeper league as an undrafted free agent a couple months ago and he was rated 7.0C

I would have to agree that some of these projections are pretty generous.

His plus/minus is +5 on a team that is currently -12 overall, and his strong puck-moving ability and physical play have made him a standout for the Rats.
While Brett's overall play has improved, I think it's quite a stretch to say that he stands out with his physical play. If anything that's one of his biggest deficiencies.

I guess that depends entirely on how you define "fairly well". Based on what I've seen I think he's gotten progressively worse, and lately he has mostly been pretty awful.

After his recent exploits, Hughes likely won't be back with Kingston next season. Could he play in the ECHL or do they have an age-limit like the AHL?

I haven't heard of anything like that.. But, no, the ECHL doesn't have an age limit. On my local ECHL team this year, we had a pair of players who started off the season at the age of 19.

Andrew Ladd also started off last season at age 19, in the AHL. I'm not sure what the rule on the date of birth is in reguards to AHL eligability. Might be something to do with having a birthday in the same year as the start of the season considering Ladd's a December birthday. If I can find that anywhere in the CBA I'll post it, but I'm not sure what it is other then one of these rediculously ambiguous rules that pretymuch NOBODY knows one way or the other.

But to answer an earlier question, if the rule is how I interperet it, seing as how Ladd was 19 and playing in the AHL I would assume that Hughes is eligable for the same reason. In fact Hughes birthday is earlier then Ladd's in terms of what month it is. Might be the best thing for him to start next season in the AHL.

A player coming from the CHL must be 20 by Jan. 1 of the season, OR they must have played 4 full seasons in the CHL.

It's not in the CBA though, it's in a private agreement between the NHL and the CHL regarding taking players out of junior. That's why few people know about it.

It does not apply to Europeans or former college players, only CHL players.

Bobby Hughes has played 4 years in the CHL and will turn 20 by January 1st, 2008. Thanks for the information, Holly. Bobby is eligible. I see it as all but a formality he will make the jump considering how things have ended with Kingston.

Agreed, no way in hell Bobby plays for Kingston next year, and I doubt the odds are much better that he ends up being traded from one CHL team to another.

Kunes isn't on the top 20, he is not putting up good numbers in the NCAA. Expected more from him.

What can you guys tell me about Vojta, you expect him to be in the NHL?

From what I've seen he has good skating ability and a bit of a mean streak to him (mostly WJC viewing). I'm not sure if he'll make it or not but I see him being a bit like Danny Richmond was for us with more of a nasty streak. Potential to be a good two-way defenseman if he puts his mind to it, but not the size to be a dominant one by any meens.

id be happy to see hughes in the ahl - is harrison old enough....im too lazy to check. it would be nice to see these guys get some call ups during injuries. it would be nice to just call up our own future players instead of pure minor leaguers or carrying extra vets.

Reed is too young to play in the AHL next season.

New member, so pardon the late response here.

I've seen Chaput play a few times (living in Lewiston, ME) this year, and the assessment from the article seems pretty close to me. He is definitely high energy, a nice skater, and has a nice habit of being in the right spot on PK. While I don't know if he'll develop into any kind of NHL-level scoring threat, he could be a solid 3/4 liner, penalty killer, energy player. (And doesn't seem to mind the physical contact either.)

Good to hear, sounds like another Chad LaRose. Hopefully, Chaput has a little bit better luck at putting the puck in the net. Did you have an opportunity to watch Nicolas Blanchard any?

'Fraid not. Didn't get out to any games against Chicoutimi.
