I want you to find the Howse vs Rajala thread.

Did Howse even make team Canada?
He wasn't even looked at for Team Canada

What are his stats?

We're talking like U18 Ivan Hlinka and REAL international tournaments. Like WJC or WU18's

Haha 5 pts in 6 games at the U17 half of them AAA players doesn't scream good player to me or to anyone for that matter.
AND he definitely was not one of the top players.

And Team Pacific isn't technically "Team Canada" its a region, with that being said U17 doesn't really mean much, its just to get a taste of players who will may get a shot at the U18, in this case he won't.

and it IS Team Canada - PACIFIC and he is getting an invite to the U-18 this August


He has a great offensive upside that is jus waiting to be tapped on, he is adjusting to the WHL and the strong defense...


This guy is a late bloomer, just watch next season in the Dub- I predict

GP-60 G-44 A-21 PTS- 65

Drafted 1st Round...count it baby

No way . You said it yourself - best defensive systems.

These predicitons you are setting for him arent really fair at all. I doubt he gets near 44 goals but I do agree that he will have a breakout season next year and possibly get drafted in the first round of the 2009 draft.

Just reviving this thread out of interest.

I guess Kane had a little surprise for most posters in this thread.

Anyways, what I was mostly interested in is a discussion about Ferraro and Howse out of the Dub. They seem like similar players (similar skillsets and stats) with a significant difference in rankings. Anyone care to explain why?
