    Did Atos Koivu move in the rankings since Christmas ?


    They have him at 81st, so a NHL long shot depth player am assuming.


    81. Aatos Koivu, C — TPS (U20 SM-Sarja)
    Anni Karvinen – Aatos Koivu is a strong-skating center that has had a steep development curve during the season. He is physically quite raw which partly explains why he flew under the radar for so long. Koivu possesses a plus tool in his shot that he likes to fire frequently, especially from the half-wall. He also has a quite good hockey sense especially in the offensive zone where he is good at
    making himself available as an option to pass the puck to. He can play responsible two-way hockey and he’s already developed some mature habits like good scanning.

    If Eiserman falls to 15 then the Habs should definitely try and trade up.  

    I was happy when Caufield was picked and i guess this guy is supposedly a similar-type sniper, but not hoping Habs pick him.


    Prelim games U18s start tomorrow, TSN i think is airing Canada games. 

    Iginla & Greentree i guess are 2 top prospects playing.

    Not sure who is on USA/Sweden

    I have no idea why I actually like the Canucks but it might be because they are the only Canadian team that hasn’t offended me. 

    Leafs, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa - I strongly dislike for one dumb reason or another but the Canucks are cool. 

    Canucks or Jets cup win would be great, to see either of them get a 1st cup... If not Go Oilers!

    Trade Cary Price's contract, one of the defense in the logjam, and maybe a draft pick to Utah for future considerations and use the new found cap room to get Jake Guentzal.


    I also wonder if the St Louis/Lecavalier factor to get Stamkos to come to Montreal for the right price if Tampa doesn't work out something.

    Why would Stamkos be a fit on a rebuilding team? Not a fit , is he?

  5. Great to see Reinbacher get a dozen games in Laval under his belt, on smaller ice and intro to NA pro game.


    Laval Rocket eliminated from playoff contention with loss (habseyesontheprize.com)

    Luke Tuch stood out for me quite a bit among the forward group. He plays somewhat of a thankless game that probably won’t show up on the scoresheet a lot, but he back checks like his life depends on it, and is very capable in the dirty areas. If he keeps bringing that level of effort at both ends of the ice, he’ll eventually find himself getting a chance in the NHL.


    David Reinbacher is just so quietly effective. Outside of his assist, what really stood out for me was his puck distribution in his own zone. He seems to have an innate sense for where his teammates will be, and his first pass on the breakout is almost always right. He’s on the right track, and it will be interesting to see how he develops next season.

  6. Mesar as a pro, how will he look in Laval next season.

    Mesar’s Graduation: Thursday night in Kitchener – Hab At Her


    About the team.


    "Playoffs here will start at a quarter-past-nine in the morning for Montreal fans. What should they look for in your game, and maybe in the stands as well?"


    "I don’t think you should look so much at me now. I think it’s more important for the team now.
    First, it’s the second final for the club. It’s huge. We have an opportunity here to take the first gold for the club. It’s going to be awesome."

    I also like Hughes' drafting logic: not drafting the best player today, but the one that will be the best in five years' time. So far, this looks to be working out with Slafkovsky.

    I wonder how Wright would be doing in habland, if had of chosen him?:spamafote:

    My hope is that Demidov or Lindstrom fall to 5 (assuming the Habs draft there). If not, I wouldn't be surprised if the Habs take Iginla or Catton or maybe Helenius. The top 10 is really tough to predict, mock drafts are all over the place after Celebrini.  

    ... Habs win lottery and take Celebrini. Aside from that any of a handful would be fine by me.

    Eiserman seems too Hoffman-like, from what i have heard, is about the only one i not keen on seeing in a a Habs #24 jersey.

    Only another 2 1/2 months to go...
