Will also be interesting to see if we EVER manage to get any of our top American kids to report to us. Siebs was fantastic. Will we get any more - or will it only be the Kitchener/London's of this world that get them to report. We have some to-class 1998, 1999 and 2000 US picks that would be fantastic to get her for 2 yrs time...
We had Haydon last year and I think Lochead is a better all round player so ya, I can see him with us as our defensive OA. Niagara has to start landing those top US and EU players. I think we will draft well this year in the Priority Selection, the U18 Yardsale, and the Import Draft. The Ice Dogs have to invest in maintaining that relationship not necessarily with a scout but with someone well versed in relations who will meet regularly with the player and family and agents.
