are supposed to be the players that turn into the stars. Some do, many don’t.
times. Pick a few players and hope they turn into decent players. Yet the
Colorado Avalanche are gifted. Not only do they have stars like Joe Sakic,
Peter Forsberg and Rob Blake, but they have many young stars. Young stars who were taken late in their respective draft years. The Avs
dynasty seemed to start in 1994. That year with the 72nd overall pick they
drafted Chris Drury out of Boston University. Then just 15 picks later they
dug up some guy playing for Pardubice in the Czech Republic. His name Milan
Hejduk. Obviously no one thought he was worth the time with the 86 picks
before that. Pretty embarrassing 1997 rolls around and the Avs notice they
have the 78th overall pick. With that pick they draft Ville Nieminen. Don’t
be shocked if you see Nieminen turn in Hejduk or Drury type of play in the
next few years. He is already putting in goals left and right off Forsberg
passes. Now for the two guys you may not have heard of. Not yet at least.
the 1999 draft. Krestanovich who is now with the Calgary Hitmen of the
Western Hockey League, leads that team in scoring. By the way that team
features players like Kris Beech and Pavel Brendl. Krestanovich averages more
points a game then Brendl and is just slightly behind Beech. Expect hi Read more »
Otter on Fire Again
Windor Spitfires forward Steve Ott has had a fantastic week and half. In each of his last three games (OHL), Ott has scored a hat trick (and two game winning goals). For his 6 goals and 7 points last week Steve Ott has also earned “Mac’s OHL Player of the Week” recognition for the week ending Sunday March 18, 2001.
18-year-old Ott, improved his season total to 49 goals and 37 assists for 86 points in 54 games
The left wing position has always been a difficult one to fill for the Buffalo Sabres, at least via the draft. Buffalo has had a handful of successes at the draft table when drafting for the left side, with the most notable choices being Rick Martin, Craig Ramsay and Tony McKegney, but those picks were made many years ago. Most of the Sabres’ LW choices have instead been of the journeyman variety, at best, or the picks have simply never made it past the minors.
Buffalo currently has some quantity when it comes to LW prospects, but few are blessed with great skill, and at least one will likely not become a part of the organization. That one black sheep, Barrett Heisten, also happens to be Buffalo’s best prospect at this position. Barrett has yet to sign a contract with the Sabres, so, due to the Mike Van Ryn loophole in the CBA, should Barrett not sign by 6/1/01, he will become a free agent available to the highest bidder. Buffalo would receive compensation should Barrett sign with another team (probably a 2nd Round compensation pick), so the blow of losing Heisten would be somewhat softened.
Given that Barrett is technically still a Buffalo prospect (and he could certainly still sign with the Sabres), it should be noted that Heisten is having a productive, though not spectacular, 1st junior season. Heisten is playing for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL, where he is currently 3rd in scoring for that team. Barrett got off to a hot start Read more »
