Germans who are good enough for the NHL…

by Oliver Janz
on






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.

Forwards

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»

Kings Draft Possibles, Part 1

by Tony Calfo
on
The Kings enter the 2001 draft knowing that this may be among the most important drafts in their history.

After making an impressive run and starting to get their system in order, the Kings will have five picks in the first three rounds of the draft. The learning curve is over- the Kings cannot afford to miss with thier top picks. With the slower development of some of their previous picks, look for the Kings to take some solidly built players who can handle both sides of the ice.

The needs would be skilled forward, a defenseman- ideally one with offensive skill, and another goalie for the system. Here are some of the potential players that will be available when the Kings make their first selection.


Chuck Kobasew-
RW- Boston College- This is my pick. Their is some concern whether he will be there when the Kings pick, but he is a solid forward. He is built well- 6’1, 195 pounds, and he is part of a championship team as a freshman. He went the month of January with a point in every game. The Kings got a good look at what skilled college players can do- Chris Drury for one. This is the guy I would like to see become a King.


Ales Hemsky-
LW- Hull- Very skilled forward with a solid offensive game. Fairly well built, although a little light at 6’1, 180 pounds. Finished the regular season with 36 goals and 64 assists. Will likely be available, but a smallish wing seems to go against what the Kings are looking for.


Colby Armstrong-
RW- Red Deer- Big right winger with alot of potential. His name keeps com Read more»

2001 Prospects: Martin Podlesak

by Robert Neuhauser
on
From the hockey point of view, Martin Podlesak wasn’t born very lucky. He saw the light
of the world on September, 26th, 1982, just a day after fellow prospect Frank Lukes, who
played for the Toronto St.Mike’s Majors of the OHL this year. He missed the 2000 NHL Entry
Draft eligibility only by 11 days.

He could shine among the Czech 1982 born forwards, as
only three were selected in 2000. That concerns the players playing in Europe. Vaclav
Nedorost was of course the huge star, but Podlesak’s great size and potential could have earned
him a second round spot at the 2000 draft. But this simply didn’t happen.

The crop of the
late-born 1982’s and 1983’s Czech forwards seems to be stronger than the previous year, but
people are talking mostly of Jiri Novotny and Ales Hemsky as potentional stars. Podlesak
seems to be hidden a bit, even this is almost impossible when you would meet him. Martin could
become the tallest Czech forward to ever play in the NHL.

Originally born in Melnik, Czech Republic, Podlesak started playing hockey at the early age
of five. The coaches usually let the tall guys play defense, but Martin wasn’t such a high
tower when he was playing for the first grades. He had exceptional puck skills, which every
coach would love and so he wasn’t forced to call the blue line home. His tough workouts
allowed him to gain the power and Podlesak was able to play with guys older than him. He had
to work on his shooting a bit, but his power helped him to make his shots hard and quite
accurate. He was a strong guy who was almost Read more»
