The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

Lee scored in his debut for the Isles and looked pretty good.

Will be interesting to see how Budish, Strome, Kristo and Percy do at the pro level.

Those certainly were under the radar, TM. But thanks for posting. I guess people just can't resist making snide remarks, when what they should do is ignore a thread that they aren't interested in...

I just have to say that I think Jesper Fast is like the awesomest hockey name eva! ;)

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I think it's pretty sad that some people can think they know a thing about other team's players and not know who Ryan Sproul, Tyler Wotherspoon, Laurent Broissoit, Ryan Strome, and Dmitri Jaskin are.

This time last year I'm sure the same people had no idea who Chris Kreider was either until he started playing well in the playoffs.

Every year there are Black Aces who erupt on the scene. Odds are pretty decent that one of the players from this list could be this year's version.

More proof CDC is full of bandwagoners who don't know hockey. "Oh the next-gen stars of the NHL were signed? No biggie." That said, I think Minnesota's prospect pool is somewhat overrated because of draft positions. I'm not too high on Graovac. Similarly, I think Calgary is somewhat underrated (first time I've ever said that!). Brossoit and Wotherspoon are most definitely underrated.

Strome especially. I would have thought that most people would know Graovac as well...

No doubt.

Considering a bunch of these guys were almost, or were, WJC players for Canada shows the lack of knowledge.

Strome could obviously be huge if the Isles make the playoffs and I would not be surprised if Kristo got a shot with the Habs. Graovac is a plumber in my mind but he could be useful to Minny.

Calgary did very well in the 2011 draft getting Brossoit, Wotherspoon, Granlund, Baertschi and Gaudreau.

Surely the "Minnesota's prospect pool is overrated because of draft positions" and "Not high on Graovac" were supposed to be unrelated thoughts? Kid was a 7th round pick, and in my opinion is looking like the steal of the draft.

They were sort of unrelated. I think he's over-achieving based on being a 7th rounder but feel that is causing him to be hyped up even more. "Overachieving 7th rounder that doesn't really become an impact player" isn't quite as sexy a story as "Picked in the 7th round and going to be a STAR!" He seems to have a very incomplete game to me and I don't know that he has all the pieces to put it together.

Forgot about Granlund somehow. I like Gaudreau too, even though he's a question mark for making the NHL because of his size.

Was deadline day the last day you can sign prospects to contracts or something? That's why you see a flurry of these I assume.

for those of you who say you have never heard of these guys, guess you are newbies to hockey. Drew McIntyre was a Canucks prospect not too long ago. He is 29 now so chances are he won't accomplish much in the NHL, but nobody knew who Tim Thomas was when he was 29.

Because some of those players are nobodies. I understand including the bigger name players but were the rookie signings necessary? Whatever though, good thread otherwise

Wow, people come in here to complain... He clearly stated "under the radar" in the title. These were signings that happened that not many people know about. He could have made each one an individual thread, but decided to make it into one clean list. Thanks OP.

In my opinion a defenseman that will be better than any other on your current list was also signed to a 3 year entry level contract by the Winnipeg Jets on April 2nd Jacob Trouba!!!!

A lot of other big names on that list as well. Wotherspoon looks to have top pairing potential for Calgary. I'd say that at this point him and Baertschi are the centrepieces of that "retool".

Strome will possibly give the Islanders the best 1-2 center punch in the league along with Tavares if they both stay long term (Besides the Penguins of course).

The Red Wings need Ryan Sproul to be a top 4 defenseman down the road and possibly even this season if they want to remain competitive.

Danny Kristo has all the tools to be a really good top 6 winger for years to come in Montreal. All of the sudden that team has one of the best systems in the league with a lot of young talent.

Dmitrij Jaskin tore up the QMJHL this season and is one of the best Czech born prospects in the game. Another great looking draft pick by Jarmo Kekalainen when he was with the Blues organization. I'm very excited to see what he does with the Blue Jackets in his first stint as an NHL General Manager.

The only reason I didn't include Trouba, who is a beast, is because he had his own thread.

:picard:

Rookies are nobodies? I can't believe how dumb a comment that is.

Yes, the rookie signings were necessary. They are the reason for the gosh darn thread in the first place.

You may be surprised to learn this but there are fans of many teams in the NHL, including those who are interested in league-wide goings on, who use CDC regularly. I believed they would like to see what signings their teams made that they may not have heard about because they got buried in the news. Many of these 'nobodies' you refer to are very important pieces for organizations going forward. It also indicates that they will not be re-entering the draft.
