Washington Capitals Mid-Season Prospect Review

by Seth Keggins
on

BRIAN SUTHERBY (C)…After starting in the NHL straight out of training camp, it took seven games for GM George McPhee to return him to his junior club. With Moose Jaw of the WHL, Brian has put up great numbers so far. He has scored 12 goals in 21 games, and is a +8 rating. He was one of three Capitals prospects selected to compete in the recent 2002 World Junior Championships (Silver Medal – Team Canada), where he played on the top checking line scoring 3 goals and 3 assists. Look for Sutherby to continue to impress.

JACUB CUTTA (D)…Began the season for the AHL affiliate Portland Pirates. As a stay-at-home mold defenseman, Jacub’s scoring numbers won’t look that great but continues to log decent ice time as a number 3-4 defenseman for the Pirates. Upon the avalanche of Washington’s injuries , the Caps called up Cutta to add depth to it’s line-up. Cutta played in only 2 games before being sent down, and was unfortunately part of a 5 to 11 demolition display put on by the Ottawa Senators (Oct. 13). Regardless, Jakub continues to impress management and will likely stay in Portland for another year or so before making his full-time Capitals debut.

MATT PETTINGER (LW)…A surprise product running straight from the University of Denver, to the WHL Calgary Hitmen, AHL Portland, and now has been a mainstay in Washington since the first week of the season. With the injury to Steve Konwalchuk, Matt has bee given a long-term shot to develop with Chris Simon, who has been able to clear more space on the ice for him. Matt has 5 g Read more»

Leafs prospect rankings 11-20

Leaf Prospect Rankings 11-20


The age of the prospect is taken into account.


11. Miguel Delisle-RW:
Almost an afterthought on day one of the 2000 draft, Delisle has come a long way from the temper tantrums that saw him fall out momentarily with 67’s Coach Brian Kilrea and got back with the program and made himself a player. Already NHL big at 6’1″ and 200 pounds, Delisle has very good wheels and his release has been compared to Mike Bossy’s in the past. He could be a bit more curmudgeony in his physical play, but that aside, the kid has a bright future.


12. Ivan Kolozvary-LW:
Although he played the middle in the recent World Junior Championships, the Leafs probably see him as an outside burner ala Milan Hejduk, whom he resembles both physically and in the skating department. Although he’s adept with both passing and finishing at speed, whether he’ll ever approach the level of proficiency demonstrated by the Avs forward and whether he can withstand the rigours of the North American game remains to be seen.


13. Jaroslav Sklenar-RW:
Possibly did himself a big disservice by checking out of the Ottawa 67’s earlier in the year for HC Kosice of the Slovakian League but is a tall, lanky 6’1″ 172 pound winger with a knack for getting his stick loose in tight spaces around the net. The is also little question about his skating which is quite good but his defense could use some improvement and he’ll need to fill out more. Then again, at 18 years old, he has plenty of time for both.


14. Regan Kelly-D:

David Inman examined

by Michael Theodore
on

After lighting it up in the OHA in 97-98, expectations were high for David Inman who was born in New York City but was raised in Toronto. He was supposed to be one of the top college freshmen. He was supposed to be a first round draft pick. He was supposed to be a star for Notre Dame. Instead Inman finished with 20 points in 38 games along with tons of scouts scratching their heads. Undaunted, Inman was still a fairly high draft pick (59th overall) of the New York Rangers. The scouts like most experts, figured Inman would rebound and show the same talent that made him a top prospect a year earlier. What they saw during Inman’s sophomore season was a player who had all the tools needed to be a star, minus all hockey sense imaginable.

During the 99-00 season, Inman’s game was marked by both highs and lows. There were stretches when it appeared things were finally starting to click. These streaks however were short lived as Inman would inevitably fall back into a slide and look perpetually lost on the ice. He didn’t have the vision to make smart plays, and his shots often couldn’t find the net or simply didn’t even leave his stick at all. To make matters worse, Inman found himself being knocked around the ice due to his smallish frame of 180 pounds.

As his junior year neared, Inman added 25 pounds to his frame and hopes were high that at the age of 20 that he could finally begin to develop as planned. While Inman would play five more games than the previous season, he would actually have two fewer goals and one less assist than his sophomore cam Read more»
