  1. Is this a serious thread? Virtanen wasn't even a "playoff guy" in juniors.

    This is one of the dumbest things I've ever read on CDC. Like, Merci or BuretoMogilny level of stupid.

  7. I remember taunting someone saying they'd look like Karl Rove in 2012 once the election was over. I deserve a giant slice of humble pie.

    He was. People were saying if he was eligible for the 2015 draft there would be consideration of him being taken over Eichel.
  9. Someone's getting ready for a Karl Rove 2012 moment.
  10. Trump insults Cruz's wife, insinuates that Cruz's father had something to do with the Kennedy assassination, plants a story in the National Enquirer about Cruz allegedly having 5 affairs and we're supposed to be surprised he didn't endorse him? What kind of disloyal p***y would he have to be to sell himself, his wife and his father out?

    I was speaking in general as you were referring originally to a post made by Gooseberries.

    Olli Juolevi | D

    An older player on an even more spectacularly stacked team with OHL prodigy John Tavares, Kadri and Del Zotto. What D partner did Juolevi play that even closely compares to Del Zotto. London had 1 godsend line on the team Juolevi played on while Carlson had 2 lines to work with along with a very capable threat on the blueline who could carry the offense in Del Zotto. That year was an exception, not the rule. If anything, that proves my point shows Juolevi has even more to show in his draft +1 year just as Carlson did. When they had Schremp, Bolland, Hunter and Kostitsyn in 2006 their highest scoring D had 14 points When they had Gagner, Kostitsyn and Patrick freaking Kane in 2007 their highest scoring D had 24 points. The 2005 Memorial Cup winning team had a 19 year old and a 20 year old paired together putting up points. A team stacked with talent including Cory Perry, Hunter, Schemp, Bolland, Prust, Methot and Girardi. The 2016 London Knights barely qualify to shine that team's shoes. As demonstrated, just because you have good forwards doesn't equal defensemen loading up on points in London. The players who did were all at least a year older and/or were on more deeper teams and none of the London D that DID put up points were draft eligible 17 year old imports like Juolevi. Juolevi played on a very good team, but it wasn't as deep as the 2005 and 2010 London teams. He didn't he play with someone on the blue-line as good as some of those players had and it wasn't his role to purely produce offense like Jake Bean. He had to be used in every situation and thus his numbers are a bit more understated compared to other top ranked D. I agree with you that he's not a Karlsson or a future Lidstrom, but that doesn't mean his OHL number somehow signify that he doesn't have the chops to be a Suter or a T.J. Brodie (medium #1 or higher end #2).

    London D don't typically score much. Look at Zadorov and Matta in their draft years (had Horvat, Tierney, Griffith, Namestnikov and Domi in those years). Matta (32 points in draft year, highest scoring D on London that year) walked in a year after being drafted and was practically a 30 point defenseman in the NHL and Zadorov (25 in 60) is also a highly regarded prospect. A stats comparison like that is very superficial. OJ is tied for 2nd highest scoring D-man in 6 years for London and did it as a 17 year old import. The only guy who beat him was a 20 year old 4th year player in 2010. Looks just fine to me.

    Juolevi is on loan to the OHL. I think it may be possible to get him in Utica like Dallas did with Honka.
