Great news, it will be interesting to see if he has any chance of actually making the team.

Very nice!

He deserves an invite at the very least. It'll be a tough team to make, but just being there in the summer and being around Canada's best players in his age group should help his development.

Going to be tough for him to make the team but either way it's great just to get an invite and a chance to prove himself for the coaches.

PS: the pic of Maclean in your profile isn't Maclean. One year another mustachioed player was mistakenly put on Maclean's hockey card. It's Larry Hopkins.

As for Stone, if he was born a couple of months later, he'd be a 100 point guy up for the draft. Since they say he can't skate: 2nd rounder?

Oh yeah, this kid could turn out to be a great power forward for us.

I think he will make the team.

Excellent news about stone. Are the rumours about his poor skating true? I get the sense that judging him just by his nnumbers alone would be a mistake?

FYI - Mark stone's 106 point season is the 9th highest scoring total in the regular season over the past decade. (Tied with RNH and Jordan Eberle)


To gauge where Stone may end up, here are the players that have put up 100 plus points in the last decade. I'm not as impressed by this list as I would have thought. A few decent NHLers, but far from a sure thing for these guys to crack the league.


Linden Vey (116 points)
4th round pick
6.5C by HF

Tyler Johnson (115 points)
Undrafted, just signed an ELC with Tampa)


Mark Stone (106 points)
6th round pick
6.5C by HF

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (106 points)
Predicted 1st overall


Brandon Kozun (107 points)
6th Round pick
Put up 48 points in AHL this season
7.0C by HF

Jordan Eberle (106 points)
Edmonton Oiler/WJHC star


Jordan Weal (102 points)
3rd round pick
6.5C by HF
1 pt in 7 games in AHL this season


Casey Pierro-Zabotel (115 points)
3rd round pick
Playing in ECHL

Brandon Kozun (108 points)
see above

Brett Sonne (100 points)
3rd Round Pick
Below average numbers in AHL



Mark Santorelli (101 points)
4th round pick
A little over 20 points in AHL last season


Colin Long (100 points)
4th round pick
ECHL

Troy Brouwer (102 points)
7th round pick
Chicago Blackhawks (36 points last year)


Eric Fehr
18th overall
NHL


Tyler Redenbach
Round 3
SM-Liiga


Jeremy Williams
Round 7
Borderline NHLer


Erik Christensen
Round 3
NHL



Jesse Schultz
Career Minor Leaguer


Jeremy Jackson
Stopped playing after junior


Nathan Barrett
ECHL


Joffrey Lupul
NHL

Eric Johansson
8th round
Playing in Europe

For what it's worth Joe Sakic did wear number 88 with the Quebec Nordiques...that was his original number which he later switched to 19.

The most interesting name on that list to me is Cody Ceci. He and Murray are the only '12 draft eligible players invited. Im defenetly going to have to keep a closer eye in Ceci this year.

i'm giving credit to stone for an excellent season this year and to the murrays for finding what could be a diamond in the rough. that being said, i know when i saw him at rookie camp last year he was very, very slow. i mean he was standout slow.

Slow can be overcome if he has other attributes, like size and hands.

I've never seen the kid play, but his PIM's look extremely low. Is he a banger?

Guys like Andreychuk, Robitaille (Luc) and even Yashin were terrible skaters or just plain slow. If he's a garbage man that plays in traffic and makes his living in the crease, he doesn't NEED to be fast.

A nice carrot to dangle for Stone to work on his speed and skating. I'm sure Hockey Canada has told him they like his game but we all know Stone most of all builds their teams on speed and forecheck - Stone will have a hard time making the final cut unless he gets way faster

Motivation wise he's set up for the summer he needs.

Eh, Corey Locke had 150+ points in the OHL the year after his draft year. While it's good Stone had a good year, let's not get carried away

Is what I say.

Completely agree. Akeson of the Kitchener Rangers tied Toffoli for the OHL lead this year, he never got drafted, and signed as a Undrafted FA.

Points do not equal success at the next level. Heck, I averaged 1.36 Points Per Game in Peewee, finished 3rd in the league in scoring, but was nowhere near good enough to make the competitive AA team.

Adam Graves comes to mind. To see how Chara was skating in the finals - his skating from the day he came to Ottawa versus where it is now is incredible. Hopefully Stone makes Team Canada - it would be amazing for him.

the game has changed. i'm not sure a guy like andreychuk could play in todays NHL and be effective. its all about skating now, and if you can't do that, you can't play. yashin is an excellent example. he had average speed at the very best. early in his career when we were still in the NJ devils/florida panther trap age, guys like that could be effective. as skating became paramount, yashin couldnt play and be effective in this league anymore.

don't get me wrong, i'm not writing the kid off and i still think he appears to be an outstanding pick for where we got him. he could improve his skating to the point where it isn't a weakness and his size and skill might make him a very effective player. but the skating i saw from the kid last summer was not even close to being NHL-calibre.

Lucic was said to be a crappy skater, same with Eric Fehr and Ryan Clowe.

You can't tell me that Yashin couldn't play in the NHL in this "era".

His drop off in play came from age, injury and the fact that he never cared about hockey in the first place.
