Muskegon took Dylan st.cry but isn't he going to notre dame in the fall?

 

Not if Cal Petersen decides to not sign in Buffalo.

Tri City with 8 picks in the first 4 rounds. Muckult did this a few years ago and won the cup the next year. ...... Will be great for the fan listening to Fine call a HD feed and a Muckult creation.

You might want to check the huge turnaround of the Charlottetown Islanders this year in the QMJHL.

Then go back and see who the GM/HC was the year prior to Muckult winning the cup.

I’d also keep an eye on who has interviewed for the Florida Panthers job.

America's Team does it again. Their ability to get all kinds of high profile talent every year is crazy.

Four players will not be returning to the Plymouth-based organization for the second season of their two-year training program Michigan natives Blade Jenkins and Will MacKinnon, along with goaltenders Ryan Ullan and Keegan Karki. http://mihockeynow.com/2017/05/roster-changes-coming-for-next-years-ntdp-under-18-team/

That is the other "America's Team", not THE America's Team.

A common mistake.

 

If I was talking about Team USA, I would have said "Team America".

 

Everyone knows Waterloo is America's Team.

Don't tell Scott Brand that. He could quit whatever job he's working at any time and sell out Young Arena. Crushing the spirits in Cedar Rapids with their homo-erotic dance tune goal songs...

The draft never stops amazing me. Kids not drafted who should be and kids drafted who don't have a chance. Just amazing. When I see a player I know really well who might end up being a third line NAHL player some day, taken in this draft, but a kid already talking to D-1 programs not drafted, I have to scratch my head.

The USHL draft absolutely floors me every year. This is where you can see how many more resources CHL teams put into scouting than the USHL. Some of these picks amaze me. Waterloo's first round pick baffles me along with a number of others. I agree ML, this whole process with the USHL is puzzling. And I won't even go into my rant on the NTDP.......lol.

Yea, PK and crew do such a horrible job??

Where was that said? It wasn't. Simply pointed out that pick baffles me in the first round. I can assure you I'm not the only one. And I meant a number of other draft picks overall, not in relation to Waterloo.

Serious question, why is Sam Huff in the first round a baffling pick for Waterloo. I have never seen him play. Just looking at the numbers it seems like a solid pick to me. Good size, over 2 points a game in MN, committed to Minnesota, rated 131 by central scouting,captain of high school team, plus not expect at Minny until 2018 or 2019.

All I know is Jay Varady seemed very happy about the draft during his radio interview yesterday afternoon on 620AM in Sioux City. Probably not a good sign for the rest of the league.

What HC or GM isn't going to say they were happy with their draft?

They all do. But listening to what he was saying, it kind of echoes what I am reading on this board. He was surprised when players that were high on their board kept falling to them. Reading here, there were posters kind of wondering why some players were being drafted. I'm guessing Jay was thinking the same thing as players he wanted kept falling to him.

Any impressions on how Muskegon did in this draft?

I followed the draft on their twitter page and looked up the guys in eliteprospects... seems like they got a few good ones.

Also what do you think about them trading their 1st round pick for 3 players?

I like his draft he should be happy, it ain't science, but it is an art form, keep an eye on Martin Pospisil.

I should have been more clear on this as I was referring to their Phase I pick, Patrick Guzzo. Sorry for the confusion on that, I was making a general overall comment in regard to ML's comment but can see since this the Phase II thread how that would not be clear. I was surprised that Waterloo took Guzzo with a first round selection in Phase I. Having seen him play a high number of times I can certainly see a team taking him but to me that seems early based on what I have watched.

Omaha fans - I see Josh Mervis is making another tour of duty in the USHL as a partner in your organization. Any idea on how much influence he had in the recent drafts? I always thought he put good teams on the ice when he was in Muskegon.

Drocks, you too ML, wondering if you could share a little compare and contrast the scouting departments of Major Junior and the USHL. This is something USHL fans would be very interested in, I know I am.

 

Do you think USHL teams rely on a players' coach and networking than having eyes on a kid say 10 times before drafting him?
