    "He works hard in practice every day, and regardless of what his last name is he’d up there in the draft as a pretty high pick. … He's a pure sniper. He's got that big-league shot and release. He's a power forward, he's still a little bit slight, but he's going to fill out and mature.” – Surrey coach Matt Erhart to the Journal Pioneer (PEI, Canada) and Nanaimo (British Columbia) Daily News.
    http://www.edmontonjournal.com/sport...100/story.html

    “He’s very smart for his age and anytime he gets the puck on the offensive side of the red line he’s very dangerous,” said Williamson. “His shot, his release are at an NHL level already so once he packs on a few more pounds it’s going to be quite scary.”

    Sounds like we really went after a little more scoring in this years draft rather than "character" and "speed".

    I like.

    Adam Tambellini Leaves North Dakota For WHL

    Adam Tambellini (2013 third round pick) has left the University of North Dakota to join the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL after the Hitmen acquired his rights from the Portland Winterhawks.

    He had two goals and two assists in 16 games for UND and he is expected to join Calgary on their coming road trip.

    The Hitmen GM said, “we are very excited to add a top forward to our group. Adam possesses size, skating and a scoring touch that will add terrific depth to our lineup. It is not easy to give up a first round draft pick, however when you acquire a talent like Adam we felt the price was warranted.”

    So what's the consensus? Good or bad for his development?

    Hitmen are a first-place club.

    I guess against better competition, so i'm gonna say this is probably good for his development.

    It's against lesser competition
    He wasn't ready for NCAA yet

    I'm really looking for someone who follows the Hitmen and NCAA more closely. I don't know what role he played at ND or what role he will play in the WHL, and is it better to be bottom 6 in the WHL than top 6 in NCAA or something like that.

    But if he was already playing in the NCAA how was he not ready? Not sure I follow that.
    Don't know much of the WHL honestly.

    Probably a good move for him I guess
    NCAA (especially North Dakota and that league) can be rough on a 18 year old

    He's going from playing against men and systems more like the AHL to playing against boys

    There is great debate as to which path develops you better for NHL

    CHL vs NCAA

    But no debate as to which league is tougher on a 18 or 19 year old

    NCAA is men
    CHL are boys

    This basically means he's decided he wants to be an NHL'er and can't afford to basically sit 2 years while waiting his turn in the NCAA. He's played in 16 games this year, 4 less then my 16 YO brother has in bantam house league. I can understand the frustration.

    Thus goes back to the point of very few 18 and 19 year olds make any kind of impact in NCAA.
    Where as the same time, they can drop back down to the CHL and simply dominate.

    They don't necessarily dominate, but they aren't going to be playing a 3rd line role that's for sure.

    i just got a lesson. had no clue as to the difference between these leagues. nyc is such a pro town.

    from what I've read on this forum though, looks like we have some intriguing youngsters entering the system.

    Ya, but you know what I mean.
    A 2nd rounder going back to the chl is going to through up big numbers, be a leader, run PP, create etc.

    2nd rounder going to the NCAA is going to be a weaker less experienced liability

    I bet he's pumped to hear something other than "Get it off the glass and change."
