CHL Prospects Game: Nugent-Hopkins Impresses, Couturier Does not

ESPN has speculated that the Isles would pick RNH with the #1 overall. That's doubtful. It is hard to see anybody but Larsson as the first choice for the Isles. If, however, Larsson is off the board when the Isles pick, RNH might be the way to go. He will likely be a year away from being NHL-ready--although Skinner and Burmistrov are examples of less physically developed skilled players who have made the jump and made it well--but he could become the ideal setup man for JT. That combo on the top line with Kyle to create a physical presence could start to produce in a manner comparable to the B-T-G line. TSN noted that RNH jumped right in when a Team Cherry goon went after Sven Baertschi. David Musil then went after the goon.

For the Islanders, assuming they are both on the board, it would seem to be a choice between Larsson and Landeskog. Getting both would be a dream come true. Larsson would be an absolutely perfect pairing partner for Streit and Landeskog would be a great linemate for JT. Maybe the best strategy would be to draft Larsson if available, hope NJ takes Couturier, and see if CDH can be leveraged into a top ten pick and then try to put together a package to convince Edmonton if they are #3 to trade down. They would probably be looking first and foremost at Larsson and Couturier and might be open to it.

TSN has Larsson #1

RNH is #2, Landeskog #3, and Couturier #4. Consensus, though, is that they are close enough for teams to draft according to need.

Only CHL players...so Couturier, Landeskog, and Nugent-Hopkins....but no Larsson.

Ten Reasons for Islander Fans to be Thankful This Holiday Season

Of course, there are many others. I just chose to limit it to ten. Feel free to add your own either here or in the BR piece comments section. Wanted to do an item on Anders Lee, but BR had no file pics of him. Also was frustrated by the lack of Calvin De Haan anecdotes on the web.

Kirill Goes Krazy (in a good way)

Scores two goals to help lead the MAINEiacs. In seven games with the MAINEiacs, he is 3-3-6 and a +5. So if you are looking for reasons to be thankful that you are an Islander fan, think of Kirill, Nino, Hamonic, De Haan, and maybe Larsson or Couturier joining the squad next year.
