2009-10: In his first pro season, Piche appeared in 9 AHL games with Grand Rapids with no points and 4 PIMs. He skated in 36 ECHL games with the Toledo Walleye, scoring 5 goals, 23 assists for 28 points. He added 2 assists in 4 playoff games.

Talent Analysis

Is an offensive-oriented defenseman. Piche does very well on the powerplay, as he has good puck control and possesses an impressive, strong shot. He also plays a steady defensive game when needed.

Future


Projects as a depth defenseman. Will really need to step up and show he can play at the pro level.  Piche was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deal that brought Kyle Quincey back to the Detroit Red Wings.

Windsor Spitfires playoff picture

If this year’s Windsor Spitfires hockey club is going to pull off a first round “upset”, or any subsequent round “upsets”, everyone knows that three players will be key: goaltender Cory Campbell, defenceman Tim Gleason, and forward/superpest Steve Ott.

Accepting this as fact is not difficult, it’s obvious. But what if….Campbell slumps, Gleason gets injured, or Ott finds himself more in the penalty box than on the ice? Would this automatically spell the end of Windsor’s chances?

No, and here are three reasons why:

1) Goaltender, Ryan Aschaber.

Ryan is now in his third year with the Spitfires. He’s played in more than 75 games over this time and sports a very decent 3.51 career goals against average. Not your everyday, average, backup goaltender. Furthermore, having had to take a back seat — first to Michael Leighton, and now to Cory Campbell — Aschie would have plenty to prove. Now throw in the fact he’s well rested and voila, the Spits have got themselves a goaltender who could take them just as far as Campbell — if need be.

2) Defenceman, David Bowman.

David is in only his second year with the Spitfires; but with confidence way beyond his two years of major junior experience, Bowman patrols the blueline both swiftly and aggressively. As in swiftly he races to the dump-ins, aggressively he fires the puck off the glass and out. Or swiftly he races to the front of the net, aggressively he tries to move his opponent. Now throw in the fact that a good playoff run might just be the determining factor on whether or not he gets drafted thi Read more»

LEAFS DRAFT RECORD ABYSMAL

What do the Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings, Dallas Stars and New Jersey Devils have in common? First, they have split all of the last seven Stanley Cups amongst themselves. What possible reason is there that these four teams have been dominant over the last seven years? The answer lies within their other commonality, their franchise superstar and base of surrounding stars were built from there own great draft selections.

Colorado drafted Joe Sakic, their franchise superstar, and also drafted star players Adam Foote, Milan Hejduk, Alex Tanguay, Martin Skoula and Chris Drury to compliment Joe. Dallas’ Mike Modano is their franchise superstar and a former first round selection. Dallas used draft picks to add Derian Hatcher, Jere Lehtinen and Jarome Iginla (who they used to acquire Joe Nieuwendyk) and this was the star base that took them to their Cup win. New Jersey’s franchise player, Martin Brodeur, was a Devils draft pick. They reinforced their lineup with superstar skill from the draft in the form of Scott Neidermayer, Patrik Elias and Petr Sykora. Finally, Detroit’s star player Steve Yzerman was a product of their amateur draft selections. They also added superstars Niklas Lidstrom, Sergei Fedorov, Keith Primeau, Martin Lapointe and Chris Osgood from the draft.

If you look at the Leafs past decade of drafts, their top selections have never developed into anything more than role players. The only star they drafted, Kenny Jonsson, is far from a franchise player. Grant Marshall is a fourth line winger on Read more»
