Stars Prospects Notebook (5/21/2001)

Notebook — 5/21/2001

OHL Notes

The CHL Memorial Cup playoffs is now taking place but the OHL championship has not come and gone without some play (and thus

analysis) of a few Dallas Stars prospects in the Onatario Hockey League. Naturally, many scouting eyes were upon highly

touted rookie Jason Spezza and his somewhat disappointing playoff performance for the Windsor Spitfires. Spezza’s rather

quiet playoffs, in which he was outplayed and kept fairly in check by opposing forward Stephen Weiss (4 goals, 5 assists, 9

points in 9 games), has caused some scouts to rank him lower in the draft. The Red Line report, for instance, proposed that

he may be moved as far as 4th or 5th in the draft this year because of his playoffs.

I mention Spezza because (naturally) Spezza’s performance calls to mind that of teammate (oft linemate) Steve Ott’s

own performance. 18-year old Ott (3 goals, 8 assists, 11 points in 9 games) lead his team in playoff scoring this postseason

and proved to be an antagonostic presence throughout much of the Spitfire’s admittedly short run (27 PIM). Still, things

could have been better for the Windsor Spitfires. Windsor’s top line was not able to muster much against Plymouth’s during

the Spitfire’s quick exit in the 2nd round. A sign of their offensive stars (and Ott himself) being overrated? Or merely a

natural result of having too many offensive eggs in one basket in a highly defensive-oriented postseason?

Swedish Star prepares to take America by Storm

Kristian Huselius could not have had a much greater season than this past one. He was chosen MVP by the players in the SEL and received the “Golden Helmet”. 111 players had voted Huselius as the #1 player in the league out of 255 players total. Everyone had the opportunity to vote on three players, #1, #2 and the #3 in the league. Here’s how the voting ended:

1. Kristian Huselius, Frölunda
2. Mikael Renberg, Luleå – Returning NHL’er who was very dominating
3. Mikael Tellqvist, Djurgården – Toronto prospect was the best goalie in the league.
4. Tim Thomas, AIK – American goalie who was virtually unstoppable. Read more»

Draft Situation Gets Worse for Coyotes

by Brandon LeBourveau
on

When the Phoenix Coyotes made the trade that sent Keith Tkachuk to the St. Louis Blues for Michal Handzus, Ladislav Nagy, prospect Jeff Taffe and the Blues 2001 1st Round pick, they knew their could be a catch.

The St. Louis Blues were punished by the NHL a few years ago for talking to Scott Stevens about a contract before he actually became a free agent. At the time, he was property of the Devils, and New Jersey filed a suit against the NHL that the Blues should be penalized, and they were. The NHL awarded the Devils the right to take one of the Blues 1st round picks in the next couple of drafts, and also the right to swap 1st round picks in another draft. Well, the Devils exercised their option to take the Blues 1st round pick this year, which the Blues originally dealt to the Phoenix Coyotes. So in this weird scenario, it turns out the Devils will actually get the Blues 1st round pick this season and the Coyotes will get the Blues 1st round pick next year, in the 2002 Entry Draft. But wait, there’s more.

The Devils still own the right to swap picks with the Blues. So even if the Blues finish in the bottom of the standings, the Coyotes won’t get that high pick because the Devils will surely swap picks, leaving the Coyotes with a late 1st round pick which is what the Devils’ pick would likely be. So no matter what, the Coyotes will likely end up with a late 1st round pick next season from the St. Louis Blues.

As for this years draft, I will be posting a draft preview sometime in mid-June in which I will analyze where the Coyotes select and what players wo Read more»

Listed are only players who played for germany at the world championships in germany. So, these are the most interesting players for the NHL-teams.

They play in this league (Sturm), the could be drafted (Goc, Greilinger, Seidenberg), they’ve played in the NHL (Goldmann, Benda), are overage players who hope to be drafted as a overage (Kreutzer, Müller) this year or last but not least Lüdemann, who hopes to get a chance in the try out camps.

Marco Sturm

Before the championship started all german hockey fans looked at the NHL Play-Off’s. German NHL-Players Jochen Hecht (St.Louis Blues), Marco Sturm (San Jose Sharks), Olaf Kölzig (Washington Capitals) and Sascha Goc (New Jersey Devils recall-list) are all appear for their teams in the NHL Play-Off’s. The Washington Caps and the SJ Sharks lose their series, but only Sturm comes to germany. Vezina-trophy-holder Kölzig suffers a injury after the series.

Marco Sturm get the chance and the germans are hopefully that he take the chance to lead this ‘new’ german national team. Sturm did it, he leads the young team in every game and recorded four goals and one assist in seven gam Read more»
