  1. Remembering that I wanted Severson instead of the abysmal Mallet, placing my draft choices for the Canucks this year to see how I do:

     

    5- Cody Glass- Fast, High IQ center who gives it his all on both ends. Biased but he would be a fantastic compliment to Bo down the middle.

     

    33- Grant Mismash- Fantastic shot, another high IQ forward. Shattuck-NTDP-North Dakota is an amazing pedigree, shows the ability and coaching he has received to get the most out of his game.

     

    55- Max Gildon. Was a phenom as a youth player in Dallas, he isn't as dominant as Werenski and Hanifin were at the NTDP but he has potential to be a very good defender. Solid all around, and shows potential to grow, just needs a patient NHL team.

     

    64- Jonas Rondbjerg. High work ethic, energy Danish winger. Sound familiar? Upside might not be top 6, but speed and two way ability should make him an NHLer.

     

    95- Rickard Hugg. Swedish center who's already had a taste of the SHL after excelling in the J20 league and internationally as the captain of the Swedish U18 team. Two way ability and versatility to play wing.

     

    112-Scott Walford. Local kid, solid two way guy. At this point its anyone's guess where the draft goes but you can never have too many defenders.

     

    188-Sebastian Aho. Swedish defenseman that has been terrific over there but no NHL team wants to touch him. Last year of eligibility.

      I love hearing about all sorts of prospects. Is there a place that you always read about them or is it just all over the place you find information like this?

      For American prospects the SB nation college hockey blog is fantastic, and starts reporting around the WHL draft age so you can kinda see who goes up or down. Rondbjerg was on the Danish WJC team at 16 so he got on my radar there. International tournaments are where I notice foreign players. Aside from that, 'The Hockey Writers' and 'Last Word on Hockey Prospects' give good reports and go beyond the top guys to give ideas for later picks.

  2. Anyone know where to buy a Hockey Talks t-shirt?

  3. Rush R40 tour tonight!

      Wow they f*cking shredded. Glad they started with the stuff from the new album to get it out of the way so the rest could be the classics. Pretty much hit every song you could hope for within the time constraints of a concert. 3rd time seeing them and by far the best.

      Agree with MDD, Clerks >>>>>> Clerks 2. The donkey show was good but the rest was meh. It sorely needed the dialogue of number one IMO.

      And now my debt amount is pretty much doubled because I transferred to a more expensive school, and the future pain of paying it back is sampled by the head-bashing-against-wall methodology of the process

    3. Mr.DirtyDangles

      Mr.DirtyDangles

      Back in the 90's the student loan fiasco basically screwed the future generations of having any real funds allocated without signing away your first born :(

      ALWAYS look for other opportunities. it never hurts to know what's out there and to be ready to apply and leave when something better becomes available.
