News are that Kuzya will probably be back on the ice by the time the play-offs start. First MRI showed only slight damage to the ligaments. Another one is scheduled within the next few days.

Got my future watch in the mail today

Kuznetsov got nine of the scouts 14 place votes 3 seconds and 1 third place vote.


Eakin was the 31th best prospect, Galiev at 73 and Holtby at 75.

The rest of the Caps list is

5.Grubauer
6.Flemmings
7.Wey
8.Mitchell
9.Haar (Dynamos fav)
10. Herbert

Overall the scouts voted the Caps system 11th best surprised at that.

Wey, Haar & Herbert all in action in their respective conference playoffs currently. BC/Providence is currently on NBCSports (Walton with the call). UMD is in OT vs. Denver and WMU is up 4-1 over Miami.

Minnesota (Boyd/Larson) plays North Dakota later on.

Hey all, just curious about Patrick McNeill and why he's not gotten a shot at the NHL after playing for 5 years in the minors. Is he destined to be a career AHLer or something?

He's been called up a time or two but not really sure why. Even Mike Vogel of the caps has publicly wondered why McNeill has not.

His play has been very inconsistent for most of his years in Hershey, this year included. He is great on the powerplay but in his own zone he hasn't shown signs of improvement and Washington has a lot of guys who are offensive defensemen (Green, Wideman, Orlov) who are taking his spot

We were all a little surprised he didn't get a shot last year, especially when guys like Fahey and Collins did. This year he's simply been buried by depth, especially after the Kundratek and Marshall additions.

Does anyone know the status of Kuznetsov's team in the KHL playoffs right now?

Up 3-1 over Ak Bars in the second round. If the top seeds win out there would be a Traktor (Kuznetsov) / SKA (Tarasenko) final.

The series against Ak Bars is the semi-final?
Kuznetsov vs Tarasenko makes for a very good final.

Im pulling for him to win the championship. Maybe that helps him decide to come here. Looking for more competition? Maybe... interesting thought.

I see. That's unfortunate. Thanks for the replies.

Can anyone watching the games comment on Kuznetsov's play (does he look 100%)?

Second round. Same number of rounds/teams as NHL playoffs.

I've watched just one game but he looked like his normal self.

Galiev's Saint John draws Cape Breton in the first round & Carrier's Baie-Comeau gets Victoriaville. Brandon Anderson's Brandon team will play Calgary but Anderson hasn't played in a month. He just rejoined the team after taking a personal leave.

The NCAA tournament kicks off Friday with WMU, UMD, Minnesota & BC all in the dance.

Thanks, I hadn't seen the news that Anderson had returned; no question Boes is the starter for Brandon.

I was glad to see that Carrier returned for Baie-Comeau and got in a game last weekend before the playoffs start.

He looked good in the two games I saw him play.

And for those of you that want to watch him play this is a legal stream site where you can watch all of Traktor's playoff games:

http://www.laola1.tv/

Traktor's game today starts at 9:00 AM ET.

Minnesota-Duluth vs. Maine on ESPN3 at 7:30.

- BC advanced past Air Force 2-0. Wey with an assist on a late insurance PPG.
- WMU lost 3-1 to NoDak. Haar got some props from a couple commentators but was fairly shaky. The skating and athleticism are apparent but not so much the strength and composure. Curious whether his fellow blueliners Dekeyser & Tennyson go pro.
- Minnesota up 4-2 over BU through 40. Boyd is surprisingly playing in all situations. IINM he picked up an assist. That one's also on ESPN3.
