I think the Attack can take some of the credit for

#108 Matthew Struthers

.....who happens to be ranked just ahead of Brazeau and Burghardt, btw. That's a nice future.


As I said....there's your best young NHL prospect....right there.


Tough one.....all that time here and yet....he's going to be a Battalion legacy. Him and McKenzie, both.

Oh, well.

I believe a team is going to get a real steal if Dudas goes at 131.

He's a heck of a player now at 17.

Mr Durzi will be 20 this October he’s a 1998 birthdate.

He was passed over in the draft last year. Hopefully this is his year

He deserves it.

Should have been drafted last time around. Couldn't believe the 'scouts' missed him at the time.

Hancock is another of those guys that will play pro at some level....and it's been obvious for a couple of years now. Unfortunately for him his numbers were thought to be inflated by Suzuki and Gadjovich....which has turned out to be exactly the wrong view. Then again....you have to actually pay attention to see it. Imagine the most under-rated player remaining so? Stupid, right?

I suppose that is why he is the MOST underrated player. Even when he makes his worth known he is still underreated. He will be a steal for someone.

Anyone who thinks Hancock is riding anyone's coat-tails only needs to review the Attack since he has returned to the lineup.
Nick Suzuki's slump is over, getting , what, 8 pts in three games. I think Hanner with 7 or 8 pts, and the Attack with three wins. Kevin Hancock doesn't need to prove he's a catalyst on this team .Others just need to accept it.

Bingo

When I show disdain for 'scouts', as I often do....it's just because they regularly deserve it.

They often display a flock of turtles mentality ....very slow to adapt and almost always in unison. I wouldn't pay anything for that.

I know there are very good ones out there working hard to get things figured out. Good on them.
