This doesn't only happen in the Q, it's pretty well expected in the OHL as well. Arguably the top 2 prospects went 17th and 18th overall last year. Hopefully Mackinnon doesn't pick and choose where he wants to go, from the sounds of it he's a good enough player he shouldn't have to.

Baie-Comeau im not sure...even if rimouski has 4 first round pick Rouyn is not trading the pick and Baie-Comeau is not trading MacKinnon to its biggest rivals imo. Halifax would be a better guess since they could included Campiani who played his midget hockey with Baie-comeau 1st pick in 2010 Frederic Gamelin and both have crazy chemistry together. both play together at the recent u-17
I agree with a lot of what you said.

Tourigny basically said he isnt trading the pick for 4 1st rd picks, but Rimouski and Rouyn have a strong history of making deals, they have pulled off 2-3 blockbuster deals over the last 18 months.

Over the last 10 years I have basically learnt not to listen to what GM's say in regards to drafts and trades...

That being said...if RN wins the flip id have to imagine they will make a big push for MacKinnon, but I believe Tourigny also said they wont pick him unless they are 100% sure he reports.

Now, if BaC wins the flip....forget about the possibility of them moving that pick to Rimouski...and as you alluded to, Gamelin and Ciampini have a lot of chemistry, but will Halifax be willing to part with Ciampini plus a top 4 pick plus maybe something else for MacKinnon??

From a business standpoint they should. A hometown superstar would go a long way towards filling the Metro Centre.

I agree with ya...and from an on-ice standpoint too...MacKinnon is a player who can play on both sides of the puck and in all 3 zones...Ciampini is useless unless hes 10 feet from the net. Sure he can score goals, but he does very little of anything else.

In the CHL, you always take the superior talent over other very good players.

Bring him to the Pups!!

To be real though, I dont see a fit with us. We are in a 2-man race to host the mem cup and even if we dont, will have a very strong team again next year. I cant see them trading core pieces to bring him in.

While we do have prospects, they are not close to the leval a team would want back in a deal for him. (Tesink, Oke, Kelly, Cameron, Oliver-Dares, Bourret)


If I had to put up an offer it would be:

Durepos, Kelly, Oke, 1st rounder next year, 2nd rounder this year.

Closest I can come to, that makes a bit of sense for SJ

I'd be happy if he ends up on either team, they both have crappy arenas though, RN has a nicer one compared to BC's 3,000 seater. I'd be happier to see him on Baie-Comeau because they never had a NHL star play for them ever, but both teams I think deserve him.

It would be fun to see him end up on Baie Comeau. They would have a really nice young team with Mackinnon, Bussieres, Girard, Gamelin, Meredith, Lepage, and Verpaelst.

Embarassing to watch as a Finn.

His skating and puckhandling reminds me of a young Crosby.


EDIT: Also he kinda reminds me of Eric Staal.

Obviously this kid has a ton of skill and all, and no one is saying he'll be as good as Crosby but isn't any comparison to him completely ridiculous?

78 points in 32 games great, but Crosby had 162 in 57 and I'm pretty sure he was on Shattuck's top team (Prep) whereas MacKinnon isn't (U16)

he isn't crosby, but I would say he might be the 3rd prospect I have ever scouted behind Crosby and Ovechkin...I think this kid is just as good as Steve Stamkos at the same age...Kyle Okposo played on the big Shattuck team and so did Zach Parise...I love Parise but I watched him in Shattuck and saw Okposo as well and Mackinnon is more talented than those two players at that age...Shattuck isn't bringing younger players up to the prep team now so or both Mackinnon and Cammarata would both be up there.

I didn't know who he was until I saw his first shift at the Canada Games. Wow, he is really really good

Drakkar de Baie-Comeau wins the Nathan MacKinnon derby

The Drakkar of Baie-Comeau has won the lottery pick for the QMJHL 1st overall pick in 2011, and with that pick, do you guys think that Nathan Mckinnon will be willing to go and play there?

Here's the link:

Correct question, Baie-Comeau is like a development graveyard. Small market, weak ownership, weak management, coaching suspect and no roads in or out (yes, you have to take a ferry across the Saguenay or the St. Lawrence to leave or get in). I have spent too many hours of my life waiting for ferries to or from Baie-Comeau to wish that on poor Nathan.

Halifax or Rimouski will be making the push for him.

Saint John has the assets as well, but will be keeping the players for another run next year

Maybe Moncton will make a puch too, him being a Maritime boy and all.

I dont think that Moncton has the pieces to offer that would interest them. They have some, but not as attractive as what the others could offer.

Rimouski has the 4 first round picks so if they want him bad enough they can get him. Halifax has the 4th overall pick and ciampini who has amazing chemistry with gamelin. They played on the same line in midget and at the world u17 for qc and always play extremely well together so that could interest baie comeau as well.

What assets would Rimouski and Halifax have to offer. As for Saint John they should offer Despres at the draft as he may not come back next year

You think baie comeau is gonna be stupid enough to believe despres would play for them instead of in the ahl or potentially nhl? I mean I know theyre a bad organization but not that bad. Read my comment above and those are the main assets Halifax and Rimouski have, which seem to be the best options as of now. I read that rimouski already offered 3rd and 7th overall to baie comeau but they said they want more

Despres already played 4 years, 99% sure he's going to the AHL next season.

And it wouldn't surprise me to see him get some time in with Pittsburgh either.

I'm guessing Baie-Comeau gets lured in with Rimouski's assets and the deal gets made at the draft. It would be terrible for the league to have MacKinnon not report to Baie-Comeau and go play in the USHL or something. But to tell you the truth, if I were Rimouski, I would keep my four first round draft picks. You could end up building a powerhouse like Saint John for the next few years if you draft the right players.
