I would personally do it after the NHL draft so you can see what teams are thinking about doing with (insert name here) but that makes too much sense so Iíll say itís before the NHL draft

Just FYI. The Import Draft is after the NHL draft.

In my opinion, our Ice Dogs have not had a lot of success over the years with the import draft.
Without trying to disrespect any players, there just a few players that have come to mind.

I remember Sebastian Dahm, the goaltender who came here at the deadline (I believe) to help us make the playoffs that season (2007-2008). Very good goalie and we made the playoffs. TRADED FOR

Marco Insam also comes to mind. In 126 games, he scored 32 goals, 28 assists for 60 points. DRAFTED

Simon Grondvalt who came to us along with Ryan Strome deal that sent Alex Pietroangelo to Barrie. That was a big trade involving other players and picks. He was eventually traded to Belleville. TRADED FOR

Also, Milan Doudera, a defenseman who played here for a couple of season. DRAFTED

In 2010 2011, a Niagara and Windsor trade brought us Tom Kuchnakl from Windsor. Our import Goalie Jaroslav Pavelka went to Windsor as part of that deal. He did not last long in Windsor.[u] TRADED FOR[/U]

Alexdre Mikulovich was a good pick for us, in my opinion and became a favorite here before graduating to the next level. DRAFTED

Mikkel Aagaard became a fan favorite here, but I believe that his off-ice agenda played a part of his being moved to Sudbury. I liked the young man. DRAFTED

Did I miss someone or am I over or underrating some of these players?

I was just thinking back to any year when one of our import players made a real good impact on their roster.
Sebastian Dahm for example, made an instant impact and helped back stop our team into the last playoff spot.

My conclusion might be that we have not had much luck with our drafted players, remembering that Dahm was brought in at the deadline or near the deadline.

I have to say.
If we are going to draft imports like Sysala, Kopta, the guy last year who quit, Pavel ‘the Jean machine’ Demin, or the one Czech dman who sucked and had the bum shoulder (can’t remember both of those guys names) - oh Doudera was the dman, or a crappy goalie like Petterri Similia, lol,

I’d much rather they go the ‘screw London route’ 100% of the time ...
