Is Shane Wright the only NHL ready prospect in this draft?

I’d argue Wright, Cooley, Nemec are very much in the conversation for a roster spot with guys like Yurov, Slafkovsky who I could see making it but it’s less likely

Well, we don’t know how many of the WJC players were involved, it says CHL players including some on the WJC team, not that all were on there. We’ll never know which ones but that’s not a good look


She took the money so they are not guilty by law.

how was Petrov?


He was another guy I tried to keep tabs on, but he struck me as a very skilled player who excelled on the power play but struggled to create offense at 5v5

Some AHL seasoning will do him good

Honestly, I struggle to believe that Cooley will be an impact player in the NHL next season. Jack Hughes was the very first player to jump straight from the NTDP to the NHL, and we saw how that went (it turned out well in the end but he got some serious hate).

Cooley is for sure not nearly as dynamic as Hughes, and I think at least one season tearing it up with Minnesota will do him good

Don’t really love the way you worded this. I can’t blame a young girl (24) for not wanting her name to be published (which if it went to court I believe it would/if not I will stand corrected) but these events that were discussed sound terrible. I feel terrible for her.

I didn't say he should be in the NHL, I think he should go to the NCAA for at least a season. But he's as close to NHL-ready as it gets this year (aside from Wright and maybe Nemec).

Yeah I totally agree, it's just another example of being rich means you can do whatever you want. Just pay the victim a lifechanging amount of money and get away scott free. I honestly hate our law system. **** the government and **** rich people lol

Yup, I’m certainly not saying anyone on here is guilty but that is is absolutely a photo I would not want to be on.

It’s a bad look.

That’s nothing but speculation, I love how the internet always finds a way to dig something up, could it be them, sure, do we know, absolutely not, and we never will unless someone involved comes forward

Exactly. Everyone is so quick to jump at any accusation that is made. We’ve gone from “innocent until proven guilty” to “guilty until proven innocent”.

Which is exactly why I said, “not a good look”.

I’m not saying anyone on here is guilty till proven. But I will stand by that’s not a photo I would want to be on.

And absolutely, people can dig up plenty, once it’s on the internet

It most definitely isn’t guilty till proven innocent but that’s another discussion

Fair enough, I was exaggerating a bit but you are right in that this is not a good place to have this discussion.

Gonna be an interesting draft is all I can say

As we either see MTL go with Wright or completely shock the world and draft Juraj Slafkovský

Either way both are very good. Its just up to Hughes and what he thinks is the better pick

I love Wolf. Back to back WHL goalie of the year, CHL goalie of the year the FIRST of those years (robbed of being only the 2nd goalie ever to win it back to back because it wasn’t awarded last year, probably because the OHL didn’t play or something), and then as an AHL rookie… goalie of the year again. I wonder if anyone has ever been the most recent champion of all 3 (like he technically is right now lol)

What he has been able to do is ridiculous. He just wins. Can’t wait to see what he does at the NHL level.
