2014-15 Prospects Thread
« on: October 15, 2014, 03:45:13 PM »
We can use this thread for prospect updates during the year. I'll try and post a monthly stats update at the beginning of every month. But who am I kidding, we all just want to know about Nylander.

He made his season debut with Modo today. He played centre on their top line and had a goal, 2 shots on net, and went 11 for 14 on the the draw (78.5%) in a 2-1 Modo win. So sounds like a pretty good first game. Really happy that he's playing centre over there.

What about Andreas Johnsson?

If Percy gets sent down, is he still a prospect?  Also, how's that guy they picked 3 spots ahead of Percy in that first round?

What about Andreas Johnsson?

He finished the group stage of the Champions Hockey League with 16 points in 4 games. He finished 2nd to his linemate who had 17 points in 6 games (Johnson missed 2 games due to injury). The next highest scorer was former NHLer Matt D'Agostini who had 12 points in 6 games. The next round of this tournament happens in November where I'm sure he'll face off against some tougher competition.

For now he's back competing in the SHL where he's obviously cooled off. 6 points in 10 games, 4th on Frolunda in scoring (team leader has 8). He's playing on their 3rd line. Not bad for a 19-year old.

That was nasty.

Now if only the Leafs can force a trade and have Andreas Johnson on his wing.  ;)

Nice little update on Toninato.  5th in the nation in scoring, seems to need to work with Barb Underhill a  little more but didnt we say the same thing about Joe Colbournes skating at one point and he has turned out to be a real stiff.  Could be a stud centre of the future

Colborne had 10 goals, 28 points last year as a bottom 6 centre. He is 24 years old. I guess Toninato has 4 years to surpass those totals to prevent him from becoming a stiff.

Man you guys gotta lighten up, I was being facetious, in other words making fun.  Of course I would prefer that Smokin Joe was still a Leaf, I could see we had a talent on our hands but of course he couldn't develop with us.  So now Calgary has a Centre whom should have at least been on our 3rd line.

 Look at what Toninato is doing in the US, tearing it up. And hope he can solve some of our Centre problems in the future.

Off-topic, but Colborne made a rare appearance in Elliotte Friedman's 30 thoughts this week:

Quote
15. MacKinnon beat three-time Olympic short-track speed-skating gold medallist Charles Hamelin in a quick race set up by CCM. How much burst does Colorado’s tremendous forward have? A company called PowerScout hockey is starting to track both top speed and acceleration through a computer program that uses three cameras set up around a rink.

16. The sample size is small (one-to-six times per player), but growing, and PowerScout (for business reasons) won’t allow its videos to be posted. The data I did see was compelling. MacKinnon was not one of the quickest accelerators (Alexander Ovechkin was first among those tracked, followed by Erik Karlsson, Ryan Kesler and Taylor Hall), but only Carl Hagelin had a faster highest speed, at slightly above 37 kilometres per hour. MacKinnon was tied for second, with Phil Kessel. (You can see some of that information here)

17. Not yet public is tracking indicating how much a player skates at a pace above 20 kilometres per hour. I saw a little bit of that information. Only three men stayed at that speed more than 40 percent of the time with at least 10 minutes of five-on-five play. They were Hagelin (44.2 per cent of 13:36), Sidney Crosby (42.4 of 19:19) and Joe Colborne (41.7 of 12:29).
