Nice....Gregoire has always been one of my more stealthy picks to be an impact player in the NHL.....signs are good so far.

PS....i was a one man band about Forbort this draft....i desperately wanted the isles to take him and we're all seeing why now. Hard to complain about Nino...but i still take forbort and do a little jig in the process. ::NOT knockin nino at all:: Just like forbort better....

I still like Fowler better than Forbort, but Forbort is a man-beast.

In other news, I have another review up that talks about Aaron Ness and prospect camp invite Michael Marcou.

Thinking a kid 5'10 that has already put on a good 15 pounds since he arrived at Minnesota can put on another 25-35 pounds and still play the game of hockey is a bit of a stretch.. If he puts on another 25-35 pounds, he'll probably be playing in a late night beer league somewhere...
It's one thing to think a 6'4 linebacker can add that much weight to a nice sized frame, but another to think a 5'10 hockey player can do it and still play his game, which is a game of speed and agility.
Ness has a naturally small frame... He'll top out at 180-185 at the very most..
I just don't know if he has the natural size to become an NHL defenseman.

On a different note, I'm loving that review of Jason Gregoire and I love the potential of Nelson.. I think Nelson is going to be a rock solid NHL player... Nelson has the ability to put on much more weight because he is two years younger and 5 inches taller than Ness.

I am excited for the Isles this season, but just look at the potential core 4 years from now:
2014/2015 with age in parenthesis

Neiddereiter (22) - Tavares (24) -Bailey (25) - Okposo (27) - Comeau (27) - Nelson (22) - Petrov (25) - Martin (25) - Ullstrom (25) - A. Lee (24) - Cizikas (24) - Gregoire (25) - (dare I mention) Kabanov (22)...
that is 12 guys without even mentioning a few other prospects and the fact Moulson and Neilsen could both still be around at the age of 31 and maybe Grabner who is only 22 pans out... geez! what a solid young nucleus!

I guess you're right about 25-35, but he currently is listed at 170. Jack Hillen's playing weight is 190, and I've seen both in person-- Hillen is shorter.

BPort continues to struggle.

6-3 Loss Friday
2-1 Loss yesterday

I knew scoring was gonna be a big problem this season, especially with Sim up here and Hilbert hurt, but I really, really, really hoped and thought that those 7 Dmen and the Koskinen/Poulin tandem were gonna be well ABOVE-average AHL combos. Definitely expected Reese and Kohn to be able to pretty much shut down anyone down there after their 25-40 games of NHL experience.

Kind of thought Koskinen was gonna start dominating on his own accord as well, right from the get-go - granted, he did stop 29 of 31 shots last night.

De Haan just scored a beauty of a goal to tie the game for Oshawa with less than 2 minutes to go in the game. Gives him 1goal 2 assists on the night.

Great to hear! Thanks for that...

Folks: this thread may be of interest.

It's a 'watch' of sorts for the top 2011 draft prospects playing throughout the CHL.

It appears the Portland Winterhawks have two new heroes, with one of them being Sven Bartschi. Guess where he's from???

The Swissman has 20 points in 11 games. Could he and Niederreiter be teamed up if Nino is sent down? Has there EVER been a Swiss duo on a CHL team?

PS) Did Jensen get any points tonight?

Saw the Generals versus 67's game today.

de Haan is too good for this league. At this point, a lack of size and strength was probably the only thing that kept him out of the NHL this year. In the first period, I was a little disappointed with his play as I felt he was being a bit too conservative. But he really picked it up in the second and third period, rushing the puck up ice with ease. He's just such a smart player. It's little things that make you appreciate the high level at which he thinks the game. For example, on the powerplay he was forced to receive a choppy pass at the blueline, bobbled it a bit, and gained control with two Ottawa 67's PK'ers directly to his left and right. A lot of defenseman force a pass and panic, but de Haan gained control and out waited his opponents, keeping possession instead of passing. Then he got to his teammate on the wing. The game tying goal was a thing of beauty too. Took a pass, went to the middle of the ice, was going to shoot and decided against it, partially losing the puck behind him. But he kicked the puck up from skate to stick, kept on going and wired it far side past Mrazek with about a minute left. Defensively, he was flawless too.

Not an outstanding week for Isles-prospects, neither in the AHL, CHL or NCAA, but still worth a few comments about the week (also, I find it much appreciated with the more 'qualitative' descriptions in this thread - both from fans of the Islanders and from all the others who chip in with information):
  • Bridgeport is not doing too well, but they also seem to rely heavily on young, 'B-list' Isles-prospects, who are, coincidentally, doing ok in terms of personal stats.
  • Anders Nilsson has 2 shutouts in 6 starts for Luleň (he actually leads the league in SO's, despite sharing the workload 50/50 with David Rautio).
  • Blake Kessel has 1 assist in all of his 4 games this season
  • Kirill Kabanov has still not returned to Moncton
  • Off this chart, Tony DeHart and Brian Day are both off to solid starts in the OHL (Oshawa) and NCAA (Colgate) respectively
  • Shane Sims had a good week with 1+2 in 2 games. Could be an underrated (by everyone else than Dice on Ice) gem?
  • Kirill Petrov seems to continue his strong play and had the GWG with 3min left in the third period in Yugra's 3-2 win on Saturday.

I agree with you about deHaan and the OHL. He's another player (along with Nino) who'd be better off in the AHL, despite their age/eligibility.

In deHaan's case, it's not a wasted year in that he can still get bigger and stronger, part from workout and part from leaving puberty. He's certainly a very poised hockey player and I hope he does well in the WJC - love that tournament.

Thanks for the update.

thanks for the great update Mikkel!

It's nice to see the prospect scoring stats at a glance, appreciate the work.

And also great to hear from many of you who are watching the games as well, both give such a great perspective on the prospects.

Anyone got any news on how Koskinen and Poulin are playing in the Bridge? I really like them both but got this feeling that Poulin just may be a big time goalie for the Isles.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before but both de Haan & Cizikas will play 1 game in the Subway Series (separate games).

3 shutouts in 7 starts now. Best GAA in the league with 1.55.

Nice. It's early, but this is VERY encouraging. After this year, it's probably going to be DP and a bunch of prospects at goalie, so it will be paramount to have some up and comers there.

Keep it going Nilsson!

Aside from giving up a 2-0 lead, the highlights at the BPort site of the 3-2 victory (uncommented) are worth seeing.

Poulin looks sharp, although I can't stand this sitting on your knees crap while the opponent is swarming the net. Seems like that's what he does regularly. Led to an unnecessary (poor) first goal against.

Schremp looks fired up.... Ullstrom is looking good!

So Kirill Kabanov was just traded to Lewiston Maineiacs of the QMJHL. Seeing as how I only live about 20 mins from the Arena, guess I can check this kid out. Its a pretty big buzz atm for all the Maineiacs fans. Was even featured on the front page of the local newspaper. hah
