His skating is superb, in my eyes he has more upside than tanev. Looks like a future 2nd pairing dman.


The OHL is where players show their absolute ceiling (usually). It will be interesting to see how he does playing against men. Remember, Tanev become a top prospect playing against men. But yes, pretty good upside. I just hope this is him developing, and not getting used to playing against teenagers.

On the plus side, he's the captain of his team. Bigger than I previously thought (6'1 190 pounds, still needs to put on some weight though). And he plays in all situations and logs over 30 minutes a night (according to his coach).

Corrado actually has a pretty good shot at making Team Canada. The D has 3 locks - Harrington, Murray and Hamilton. After that there's a few guys that could get in. I think the Canadian coaches will look at how good he looked paired with Hamilton in the Super Series and use that to push him ahead of the others. Reilly and Dumba will probably take 2 of the other spots and Ceci, Ouelette, Reinhart or Murphy will take the last spot. I would love to see this D:

Hamilton Corrado
Murray Harrington
Reilly Dumba
Ouelette

Game-winning goal in the Subway Super Series and being +2 in a 2-1 game? He certainly is making a case for himself to be on that 2013 WJC roster, but I still don't see him making it unless the NHL lockout ends soon or injuries to some key players occur.


Obviously the returning 3 (Hamilton, Harrington and Murray) will be locks on this team. I think Ceci will definitely make the team as well because he is physically imposing and offensively talented. As for the offensive defenseman, it will come down to Reilly or Murphy IMO - or we may end up carrying both (doubt it). Then it comes down to Dumba, Reinhart and other notable 2012 draft picks.

Corrado has a place on this team maybe as a calm defensive presence and a leader. In that case, I could see Team Canada opting to go with a far more offensively talented but younger and less experienced Morgan Rielly instead of Ryan Murphy, and pairing him up with Frankie Corrado who will be the stay-at-home defenseman.

I would like to see:

Murray - Hamilton
Harrington - Ceci
Rielly - Corrado
Dumba

But if they do go ahead with Murphy, then it will come down to Ceci vs Corrado IMO for that last spot, and Ceci being the higher draft pic, bigger and better offensively of the two, will take it - unless Team Canada values the intangible leadership and veteran presence that Corrado can bring.

just the fact that frankie is in the picture in a lockout season with all the talent available to team canada is huge for a 5th round pick.

props to the canuck scouts who found him on a horrible sudbury team that really hurt his draft year statistics.

This strategy has been working well for us lately. We've been going after good players on bad teams.

I think Gaunce is a good example of that. He's one of the better players on an bad team. Very underrated.

And with Jensen, he was on a good team, but was overshadowed by alot of other players.

Definetly still a long shot. I think he should get an invite to camp for sure, he has had a great season so far IMO but there are tons of good D-men I would personally rate above him or just as good.

Murray
Reinhart
Dumba
Quellet
Hamilton
Harrington
Ceci
Pouliot
Koekkoek
Rielly
Murphy


As good as Corrado has been, there's 11 Guys right there who might be more worthy of being on the team, alot of competition.

There are a lot of good defenceman in the CHL. There are guys in the O like Percy, Petgrave, Demelo and Subban that are all stellar players and comparable to Corrado. Ekblad is coming on strong as a 16 year old with 16 points and a plus 8. I can't see him making the team. And other than on this forum has anyone actually heard talk of him being on the team?

in the superseries the announcers were talking about how Corrado was making a case for himself with his stellar play.

I would only put a few of those guys ahead of Corrado. Murray, Ouellet, Hamilton, Harrington and Reilly I think are the guys ahead of him. I think he's ahead of Murphy but the coach will take his player anyway. He's definitely ahead of Koekoek, Ceci and Pouliot.

So if they take 7 dmen, they are looking at (assuming Murray's out): Hamilton, Reilly, Harrington, Ouellet, Murphy and 2 of Corrado, Dumba and Reinhart.

His chances are much greater than you guys a giving him credit.

I definetly don't think he is ahead of Ceci & I also think Pouliot is a bit better, but he is possibly better than Koekkoek.

I like him, and I realize how good he is but that's the way team canada is going to do it too.


If it comes down to him and say Koekkoek, and they rate them to be the same, then will probably choose Koekkoek, why? Because he is more recognized.


Team Canada's junior team has a long history of politics and taking the more recognized players. That's another reason I doubt Corrado will be on the team.

With Ryan Murray out Bob McKenzie shared his thoughts on who he thinks has a chance at making the World Junior team.

http://watch.tsn.ca/...5020#clip815020

not sure if the link will work or not but whatever.

He has Corrado up there with the likes of Reinhart, Dumba, Pouliot, etc.

Guance is back from his injury. Even without his time missed, he just hasnt been good enough to be seriously considered for a spot. Not in a deep year like this.

As much as we all love what Frankie is doing he is a very long shot to make the team. Even with Murray out there is way too much pedigree and high draft players that will be taken ahead of him.

I think Corrado will get a invite to canadas WJ camp and with hes soild two way game and he had experience playing in russia this year with sudbury. most likely he will be a late cut because the coachs will keep him around to push the other D. he might make the sqaud if he impresses the staff which i think he will and some other D struggle. plus being paired with d hamilton in the ohl vs russia game says alot about his play and he was on the top PP PK d pairings as well

As steady as they come! Can not believe we picked him up in round 5.

Corrado was one of the candidates Bob Mackenzie thought could take the last roster spot so it's definitely a possibility. As for playing with Hamilton, in the absence of Murray, Mackenzie thinks Morgan Rielly will get the top pairing spot as he's been lights out since game 1 this season - and he's probably right about that.

At least Corrado made it as a candidate - there was zero mention of Gaunce in the forward section for the WJC piece written...
