A pretty solid catalogue...however, I would've liked to get Hextall's thoughts on Quick. JQ is obviously in sprint mode; he made the jump to the AHL as soon as he could last year, presumably, trying to get as big a head start on Bernier as possible and maybe ensure that he keeps himself in the Kings' plans by staying ahead of the other Jon on the depth chart...it would be nice to get some input as to where management thinks his game is at and what his outlook is.

Originally written by Bill Meltzer | NHL.com correspondent
O’Sullivan started 2006-07 with the Kings, but struggled, scoring just once and adding an assist in his first 11 games. He was sent to Manchester and rebounded with a strong AHL campaign, scoring 19 times and posting 34 points in 38 games.

The Kings recalled him in late January, and he responded with goals against the Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers in his first two games. In all, he had five goals and 19 points in 44 NHL games last season. He then rejoined the Monarchs at the end of the season, and was outstanding in the Calder Cup playoffs, tallying 17 points (including eight goals) in 16 games.
that's a lot of points! Patrick is great. Lombardi should extend his contract as soon as possible!

Good read ... BUT I'm not getting over excited about it ... look at the other stories on NHL.com ...

- "Cup champs {Ducks} have plenty of prospects in the pipeline"
- "Maple Leafs' prospects will make noise in camp"
- "Blues have plenty of depth among prospects"
- "Wild have several prospects on the brink"
- "Nashville's depth could keep team in the hunt"
- "Six prospects bid for Blue Jacket roster spots"
- "New-look Flyers have plenty of prospects"
- "Carolina boasts strong defensive prospects"
- "Avalanche have filled the cupboard with prospects"

It looks like NHL.com is doing it's best HF impersonation and running highly positive stories on ALL the teams prospects.

I was all set to agree with you that there is pretty much ZERO interesting and non-puff piece articles on NHL.com, but your last sentance throws me. Maybe I'm too busy reading their forums, but HF do seem to throw in some "less than glowing" and non-fluff pieces as well. The number/letter grading system and player profiles tend to contain pretty strong critique as well, whereas an NHL.com piece is straight out of each team's Ministry of Propaganda division. I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you, but I'm interested to know where you think HF displays the sock puppet journalism common at NHL.com...

HF's grades reflect a very sober analysis of the prospects...their prospect profiles, on the other hand, tend to be very positive.

Oh I guess it mainly had to do with this years Draft evaluations HF did for ALL teams, it read like ALL 30 teams had drafted the next great one ... sorry just being a little cynical today I guess ?
