I saw Hosang at the ohl camp and others as mentioned in erlier post.
He didn't get any points in the blue and white games.
Coaches were impressed with other kids actually scoring with speed etc..
Don't get me wrong he is talented but too much Globetriddering around.

Points are meaning less in an exhibition game, and almost meaningless when projecting out future potential.

As far as his talent goes, he is the most talented player ive seen in minor midget in a long, long time.

Del Colle was the second best player in the Titans Tournament behind Hosang, and will probably go #2 this year depending on NCAA commitments.

I do believe he was the best player on the ice in that Sens game, other then the Sens goaltender who had a real strong game.

Vaughan is now third in the GTHL, right where they should be.

I know we aren't paying you, but.... It would be interesting to see a brief comparision of him versus some of the prominent successful OHL'ers over the past few years that have been drafted high in the NHL.

Thanks in advance.

Michael Dal Colle is a solid player and personally I think he should have stayed up with the 95's before moving down to his own age group.

Is the John McFarland argument.

Is it better to play up on a lesser team or play down on one of the top teams in the Provence?

Had the 95 Kings been a better team, he may have played up.

Either way I think he's a heck of a talent.

I'm not a fan of comparisons to be honest with you.

I'll say this, I've been watching minor midget for a while now, and HoSang has the most talent that ive seen since John Tavares.

He's a different player than Tavares, different style.

I don't think he's a generational talent like a Crosby, but he'll be up there with the Stamkos' and the Hall's as far as OHL impact.

Over the past few years Pat Kane, JT, Stamkos, Taylor Hall and I add Tyler Seguin because he was a close second, were all top picks. Not seeing any of these play at the Midget level, did they stand out the same way?

Not really looking for skill by skill comparison, but rather how they looked at the time against the competition.

I cant speak to Kane because I rarely saw him, but at this point of his development, he looks ahead of those players. Whether or not he reaches that point is another question.

just a thought

does anyone think HoSang might not want to play in Erie or Kingston and use the NCAA to lower his draft rankings?

its starting to become an annual problem in the draft

Who should I be watching when I go take in the occasional Alliance games? Moreso from the top tier teams like like Jr Knights Gold, Sun County, Cambridge, Elgin Middlesex, etc

A number of the teams you mentioned have individual team websites on the link below on MYHockeyRankings. If I were you, I'd check them for points leaders as a starting point, but of course good defensive d-men won't be noticeable!

Good luck.

Where does Fabbri rank?

Ho-Sang is being called the undisputed #1. Who comes in #2?

[QUOTE=buffalorooter;37237603]I would suggest hosang will go number 1 if you were to make a call on it now.
Lemieux mentioned above may get drafted--only in name, as he is a problem in the dressing room and takes many, many selfish penalties.
DalCole is a good player, great reach, will be interesting to see if he dominates late in the year as he has in previous years.
Fabbri will not get much bigger in my opinion, however he has great talent and is not afraid to work hard along the boards.
Miller, very smart player....but not sure if he will improve much IMO.
Buntin out of SWO is a player that may be a sleeper....played AA up till last year. Not a big Dman, but very smart, excellent skater.
Cornel out of Ottawa area has been a high performer in earlier years, but not sure how he is doing so far this year. Any comments?[/QUOTE]

Cornel is doing well, he will be a first round pick guarantee. I find his game has change in the past 2-3 years. He was able to score at will, now he plays like he's more interested in making plays and making his teammates's around him better than scoring goals. I would say he now more of a play-maker then anything else. Don't get me wrong because there are games this year where he could have scored 1 or 2 but was robbed or did not finished at the net.

I agree and to be honest, think he is one of the better players that I have seen this year. Id have him in the top 10 as of right now, but we all know its very early.

Fabbri should be top 10. #2 should be Michael Del Colle, but is myself and others have said, its early.

I think I've been catching Dal Colle on the wrong nights, because every time I see Vaughan play, he's not even the best player on his team. Hopefully I'll get to see him play a good game sooner than later.

Is Kings' Duchesne a potential first rounder as far as d-men go?

Yeah I would definitely say he's a 1st rounder. He reminds me a bit of Justin Sefton, but if he can continue to improve his skating, he's going to be a pretty good OHL defenseman. Competes as hard as anyone in the draft and is extremely physical.

Thanks for that.

Personally, there is a kid on Huron Perth who was at the All-state All-Canadians camp in the summer who I think is quite good as far as d-men are concerned, Jacob Middleton. Big, strong kid with a lot of poise.

Again, not sure if he is a first rounder, but seems like a nice prospect. My son's played HP last year and he really stood out.
