It's quotes like these that assure me you don't know anything about our prospects.
We have two guys in juniors that are battling it out for the CHL DMan award. We have an amazing Swedish DMan that is near the league leaders for DMan points. A Swedish forward that is making men look like boys all while being on a super craptastic team. One of the best up and coming DMen in the KHL.
That's not even considering a two time hobey baker finalist who is NLT down in the minors to keep our depth alive when it is darn apparent that depth is the key to success this year. Brunner and Tatar are showing they are NHL ready and doing a very fine job in their roles (don't straw man me and remind Brunner wasn't drafted by us).
On top of all that you can't spell XO's name or Jarnkrok's name correctly and you somehow throw McKee in the mix when talking about talented prospects. Just stop talking about Detroit prospects. Just stop.
Our 2011 Draft is looking amazing at this point, especially on D. Sproul is looking like the best defenseman in the entire CHL(wonder where he'd be if not for a broken arm at the start of the season). Ouellette looks like an extremely gifted player on both ends of the ice. Backman and Marchenko are both looking like late round steals, and even Nedomlel is rounding into a nice, more physical, Lilja type defenseman.
Jurco could end up being a stud, Quine has looked unstoppable since being traded to Belleville, and if Tvrdon could get healthy, he might be a force as well.
Very promising bunch.
