    He's not really in a rush from the impression I get. Butler loves the way he plays so if he wants to be there he'll be there. You'd be a little hesitant to sign with offers from Boston College, Harvard, etc on the table too though.

    Well if he's thinking past hockey then sure, he's making the right call on going to school, and good for him, if that's what he does, but hockey wise, the OHL/CHL is the way to go IMO to better your hockey career.

    Good ole Butler, good caoch in the reg season, once the playoff's come though, not sure what happens, his teams always find away to lose come playoffs, good team or bad team, not sure why.

    Yeah its a tough call though. Its damn hard to make the Show.

    I got another buddy going down to Halifax for a skate this week. The BS thing about the Q is, if a team from the Q wants you and you live in Ontario, you have to go through all OHL teams and they all have to pass on you before you can sign there.

    Yeah I knew that about the Q, that's how both Christopher DiDomenico and Claude Giroux ended up in the Q, how they both where past over by every OHL team I have no idea.

    It's the same deal when a player from Q wants to come play in the OHL, every team in the Q has to to say no to that player.

    I don't really agree with that system but whatever.

    I'm interested in seeing how my 2 friends Tyler Seguin (3rd overall, Plymouth) and Christian Thomas (9th overall, London) do this year in the O.

    I'm guessing pretty good being such high picks, just not as good as Ryan Spooner (5th overall, Peterborough)

    Christian Thomas probably won't do as well as that 9th overall pick suggests. His name power (dad being Steve Thomas) played a big part I believe.

    Yeah I had quite a few buddies drafted last year in the O. Those 2 plus Clendening, Burlon, Chiarlitti, and a few others.

    Oh right, I forgot about that, leave it to Hunter to draft another former NHL players son, haha, knowing Hunter though, he'll have that kid playing some awsome hockey at some point in the OHL.

    Don't get me wrong, he's a great hockey player. He's beefed up over the summer too. He probably would've gone top 3 rounds easy but hey, he could end up being a steal at number 9, who knows.

    By the way, Tyler Seguin went 9th overall to Plymouth, not 3rd overall like you said above, and Thomas went 13th overall, not 9th overall

    Seeing as Thoomas played for the Toronto Marlboros, what do you know about Aaron Pearce who also played for the Marlboros last season?

    My bad, its been awhile since that draft haha.

    No idea to be honest. I'd only know Clendening, Chiarlitti, and Thomas from the Marlies. Any of the kids on that team are pretty solid players though, them and the Jr Canadiens used to have some great games.

    You're a Petes fan.

    Thomas Stajan was named to the Leafs rookie team today actually. Should be a good tournament in Kitchener.

    Cool, seem to see this alot, if a team has a player and his younger bro goes un-drafted, you see the team the older one plays for (like Matt Stajan here) invite the younger bro to camp, hoping maybe he turns out alittle like his older bro.

    Didn't the Leafs invite Kyle Wellwood's younger brother, Eric, to camp as well?

    Camp is now on the way, and to tell you the truth, so far Laplante is not looking good at all, right now not many people are happy with the way he's playing for being one of the older guys this season on the blueline, he has younger guys playing better then him so far, alot better, I even heard one person say that if keeps playing like he is right now, he might be fighting for a job this season on the team....it's still early so time will tell I guess, two things he has on his side, his size, and he's a vet, but he could be on the outside looking in if he does not step his game up fast.

    Was at the Brampton Excelsior's game last night with my buddy Pereira (who has made the Battalion), and the Battalion euro Evgeny Grachev. He's a big boy who's hoping to make the Rangers this year or else he'll probably end up in the O. Interesting to talk to a Russian about the whole playing in Russia vs North America issue.

    Well he for one really wanted to play hockey in North America but he said when he was talking to different teams at the combine, a lot of them didn't really trust a lot of the Russian players, including himself, because of the lack of a transfer agreement but also because of what happened with Cherepanov.

    Saw this last night, and Iam not shcoked at all, JT needs to play much better this season if he wants to go 1st overall at the draft, if not he could fall even past 2nd overall, his poor play in the playoff's last season is what is making him fall.

    I do think he will have a huge season though, around 130-150 Pts.

    I keep hearing this Hedman kid is the next Pronger.

    One week tonight and the OHL Reg season starts.

    Here is something Cayuga and Habs fans might like to read about...

    http://www.faceoff.com/hockey/nhlnew...olumnists.atom
    __________________________________________________ __________________

    Just for the record, Missiaen's Jr team the Petes is the Jr team I follow the most, they opened the OHL season tonight with a 4-1 win over Kingston, Missiaen made it back in time for the game tonight from Habs camp and looked really good, he made some big saves tonight.

    I'm not sure what the Habs have planed down the road for him though with Price in net, maybe his backup in a few years, who know's, I think Missiaen will at least play one more season in the OHL after this one, so that's still a few years away.

    Good to hear....I can't wait to see him here in Hamilton although it'll most likely be next year. I'd imagine he doesn't have to do much to stop the puck since he is 6'8", but I'd like to hear if he improves his movement and quickness. But yeah, as long as he is in Montreal's system he will be no more than Price's backup.
