JC Lipon is an undrafted 19 year old.
Similar to Tanner Pearson was last year.

that center that was cut yesterday Grevoc(sp?) was a 7th round pick by the Wild.

What's crazy is Ouellet, Paterson, and Sproul are all Detroit draft picks and none of them were taken in the 1st round. The Wings also have Martin Frk, a second round pick, who is lighting it up in Halifax. Once again the Red Wing scouts prove they know how to draft past the 1st round.


Yep, it's pretty impressive.

The funny thing is, people know that these players are good before Detroit drafts them. They just seem to have a knack for snagging them in the right rounds.

Like who didn't know that guys like Tatar, Jarnkrok, Jurco and Nyquist were going to be great players? Everyone on here were raving about these guys before those drafts. Yet they all fall to Detroit somehow, probably because other teams think they can get them in later rounds. That`s what I mean about having a knack of knowing when to select certain players.

Honzik and Mallet were good examples of players that were selected too early. Mallet probably could have been had in the 4th round and the Canucks could have gotten Severson or Pelech instead. And Honzik could have been drafted with our later 3rd round pick or even 4th, and we could have gotten another D prospect. Grenier could have always been taken later too. It`s all about timing.

And Francis Beauvillier was a 6th rounder just last year by the Panthers.

When you describe it that way, Detroit's scouting team actually resembles Nik Lidstrom's play. Always in the right place at the right time, never out of position. Knows when to pinch/gamble, when to drop back.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Hopefully we'll know within a couple of hours if Corrado has made it or not.

TSNBobMcKenzie If you are projecting a roster for Team Canada, start with premise 4 D and 8 F spots were IMO secure before today's game.
First four D: Rielly, Hamilton, Harrington, Ouellet. First 8 Fs: Huberdeau-RNH-Scheifele, Hudon-Strome-Ritchie, Jenner-Danault.
Team Canada wins 2-0. Final cuts will be made today, probably in the next couple of hours.
For all those asking, I think MacKinnon played well enough all week and Drouin, Rattie and Lipon may have helped themselves the most today.


Nothing specific I saw on Corrado, but the wait will soon be over!

Wrong thread for this, I know - but based on that tweet can we assume:

Huberdeau - RNH - Scheifele
Hudon - Strome - Ritchie
Rattie - Mackinnon - Drouin
Jenner - Danault - Camara
Wilson

Harrington - Hamilton
Rielly - Ouellet
Reinhart - Corrado
Murphy

Binnington
Patterson

This is brutal. Not that i thought that he would make the team in the first place, because of the tough competition, but nearly everyone thought he was a lock after his great play.

It's always more fun to watch the WJHC when our prospects are involved because it's a chance to see what they can do when going up against the world's best.

With Corrado being cut, I don't know who else we have. Makes it kinda lame and I hate watching all these fantastic players put on a show while Pierre McGuire says "(name of team) fans, get real excited for this guy. He's a great prospect and he's gonna be a beauty for your team."

:picard: :sadno: Always such politcal BS, watch Dumba make the team.


And Brossiot got cut rather than Binnington. Team Canada is known for politics with there picks & its a such a shame.

Feelin for Corrado right now. Thought for sure he had a spot on the bottom pair locked down. And to think out of all that talent he was the only player with 2 goals...
  • 0

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Yep, Canada continues its tradition of going with more of the "household" names rather than the players that actually earn it in camp.

Disappointing to say the least, but he should still be proud of himself. He looked better than almost half the D-men in camp.

Garbage decision and not because he's a Canuck. If he played as well as those who saw the games have said (including the press), alot of what i suggested and unfortunately expected came to fruition.

Guys who underperformed at this camp but were 'higher rated' player's performances were likely shrugged off as aberations, whereas since he was a long shot his play was viewed as overachieving and may not be sustainable. Obviously, most of us disagree but such is life.

Hopefully, the kid takes this experience as a positive and only uses it to motivate himself more, and gain confidence that he was one of the last cuts on a team full of young Canadian future NHL all stars, not a bad group to be a final cut from.

I think with this kids attitude though, he's just going to keep proviing people wrong and will bring that to the NHL. I'm pretty sure the Nucks made a 5th round steal with this kid and really that's all that matters.

Don't forget Hockey Canada has made poor decisions before, Nugent-Hopkins wasn't put on last year's team bc he was too small, lol, only to have a ppg pace in the NHL lmao...

Good on ya Frankie, Canucks Nation is proud
