But, that's why the GM shouldn't make such statements until the contract is signed.

I don't think anyone has a problem with swinging for the fences, it would be nice if they made a little contact now and again though.

We have no idea what is transpiring behind the scenes. Who knows if the kid had prior commitments on the two days in question. But he's either pulling the wool over the eyes of Niagara or Illinois.
Contact with him? How do you know they aren’t it’s just assumptions to this point. He’s definitely pulling the wool over someone’s eyes but I’d do the same if i was a kid with his “talent”

Read it again. The “making contact” is a baseball metaphor, just as “swinging for the fences” is. I’m not suggesting the Dogs haven’t been in touch with him. I’ll rephrase it, if you’re going to “swing for the fences”, it would be nice to get the “bat on the ball” once in a while. Hopefully, it will “drive in a run” but so far the opposing pitcher is tossing a “no-hitter” and we’re being “shut-out”.

I think it is way too early to be concerned. Roger MacLeod is a professional recruiter who has done this for the Ice Dogs for years. Between him and Joey I am not worried at all

If he’s done it for years there are several that he hasn’t been able to convince to report

I for one am worried

Based on past trends .... my belief is going to be ... that Halliday won’t report

I don’t fault the dogs for swinging for the fences but I do agree with FF. We can’t buy a hit meanwhile the LK are putting up first round ballot hall of fame statistics ...

OHL PROSPECTS @BrockOtten


Top 50 OHL Players for the 2018 NHL Entry Draft - Part 1: Honorable Mentions
https://ohlprospects.blogspot.ca/201...-for-2018.html
Andrew Bruder - Forward - Niagara IceDogs
A free agent signing by the IceDogs from the PJHL (formerly Junior C), Bruder appears to be a classic late bloomer. Played AA a few years ago. Lower level last year. Now a 4th liner for the Dogs this year who slid back and forth between the wing and center. He's an August birth date and is definitely physically immature. But he shows potential as a power center who can use his size to create some offense. Will be interesting to see where he's at in a few years if he continues to develop his skating and confidence. NHL Central Scouting is certainly high on him, ranking him 36th among OHL skaters this year.

46. Justin MacPherson - Defense - Niagara IceDogs
Really intriguing defender with upside who had some really good games for the IceDogs this year. Good size at 6'1. Skates well. Shows a good head for the game offensively, especially on the point where he makes skilled plays to keep the puck in at the line. Not afraid to jump up into the play and has pretty good vision. Defensively, solid positionally and in coverage. Has the potential to be a very efficient player at both ends. But he's raw. Could be a powerplay QB if his point shot improves and he gains confidence in his distribution ability. Will also need to get stronger to win more one on one battles in the defensive end. At this point, gets beat too often down low. And can be a tad turnover prone in the defensive zone. But, the skeleton of a pro defender is there. Seasoning is needed, but I like this kid and think that he'll turn into a pretty solid player within the next couple of years.

6. Akil Thomas - Forward - Niagara IceDogs
Anyone who reads this blog knows that I'm a big Thomas fan. He's one of the best playmakers in the age group and I just love how he sees the ice. The improvements he made to his skating ability this year really helped to open up the ice for him. Exploits gaps so well and can use his speed to drive wide and create space. This is part of why he's so effective with the man advantage. But Thomas is also a competitor without the puck and the type of kid who will do anything to help his team win. His board work is a work in progress though. I know some feel that he needs to play with more consistency away from the puck and I'd probably agree. Being able to be consistent from shift to shift and not having that intensity level drop will be the big next step for him. I think finding a permanent position will be big too. Played the wing as a 16 year old. But played mostly down the middle this year. I don't really know where he profiles best moving forward. The one component of his game that really needs to improve is his shot. Needs to improve the velocity behind it and the release, as teams tend to play him for the pass. Getting stronger will also be needed. At his best with the puck on his stick because of his skill and vision, but he can be muscled off the puck too easily and needs to be become more effective in traffic, especially in the slot. But this is a kid with a very good head on his shoulders (wears a letter already in Niagara), who has the skill level and hockey sense to be a very good pro. As he matures physically, I think we'll see him become a dominant offensive player in the OHL.

The team recently added a video to its website of the prospects who attended the orientation day.

I did not see Mr. Halladay though.

Maybe Joey should have not predicted that he would sign. 100% of the time for GM's -"Silence is Golden"
