First, thank you for all your mails. I’ve tryed to add requested
players to this update. Lately I haven’t been able to answer anything,
some problems with computers. If you still want me to add other
players to update don’t hesitate to mail.

for a one-way NHL contract.

W Teemu Elomo – Stars 41 2+9=11 +11 38 – 11 1+3=4 +7 4

Here’s How I Saw It

OHL West vs. WHL East

I was generously given the opportunity to attend the 2001 Hersey Cup for the CHL All-Star Series Wednesday night at the Guelph Sports and Entertainment Centre. The game boasted the best players from the WHL East and the stars of the OHL West. It is a new all-star format that definitely has its pros and cons. Sure it was nice to see a couple future stars in Pavel Brendl and Jay Bouwmeester, but I would have preferred to see my all-stars from the OHL East. Most of the OHL all-star representatives I support were shipped off to Quebec where many of the fans missed out on seeing their favourite players participate in high level competition. I mean, isn’t that why the OHL presents an all-star game, so fans can watch their best against the rest of the leagues best. That being said, let’s talk about the game itself. Read more»

New Rankings for Caps Prospects, 1-10

by Rick Davis
on
Rating prospects is an extraordinarily difficult thing to do. Both John Blankenship (Battleship) and myself each reorganized the prospects and the following list is basically a compromise between what we each had. I had an extremely hard time choosing a #1, and at times I felt that prospects were so close together in terms of development and potential that it would probably be more accurate to tier them as opposed to rank them in order. There are comments from both John and myself as well as from Jeff Charlesworth after each prospect, and I apologize in advance for my bad jokes.
If you disagree with us on some prospects that’s fine, in fact we welcome it. We didn’t agree on everything ourselves, as you will see. This is not an exact science, so feel free to post any thoughts, comments or questions you may have.
I think I can speak for John, Jeff, and myself when I say that we all worked hard on this, and hope you enjoy it.

1. Charlie Stephens C, Guelph (OHL), Capitals’ third choice, 31st overall in 1999
