    IMO Kasdorf has at least 50% likelihood, and others are possible.

    I liked a comment on Cornell recruit Philippe Hudon #76 SUNY-Ithaca is not the place for forwards.

    It's definitely longer than USCHO allows.

    I did like that title. I just didn't think that it pertains to the off season. Obviously, others may think differently.

    Turk Man is always on his game even on a holiday. If you check this thread tb and I have been saying that Pat is going to go higher than most think. The kid has a great head on his shoulders and this holds great sway with NHL scouts. The following quote is from Mark Jooris, his coach at Burlington “If you were drafting on character, he’d go first overall,” says Mark Jooris, who coached him on the Burlington Cougars last year.“The character is there,” echoes Rob Kitamura, head of OHL Central Scouting. To my fellow posters, we want Pat to go high because it lends itself to the program getting the props it deserves. Pat knock em dead at combine.

    the fact that the writer is only 22 leads me to believe that most of his critiques were taken from other sources, hence the "vaguely familiar sounds". Tough to gain a ton of inside info at such a young age, IMHO.

    100. LD Patrick Koudys – RPI (NCAA)
    DOB: Nov. 15/92 | Shoots: L | Height: 6.04 | Weight: 196lbs
    Midterm Rank: NR | League Rank: 8th NCAA | Country Rank: 42nd Canada
    Koudys had a bit of a prolonged adjustment to the NCAA this year after spending last season with the OJHL’s Burlington Cougars. Koudys has plenty of size and is a fairly mobile player with decent pivot ability; both attractive attributes. Offensive upside is questionable and his overall impact on the game probably isn’t as big as you would hope for him. Could be an interesting prospect to see if his overall game comes around at RPI.

    the fact that a “power forward” will be heading to Cornell might also be a bit of an issue for NHL teams.
    SUNY-Ithaca is not the place for forwards.

    I am expecting late 3rd or early 4th round. I would be somewhat fearful if he goes any sooner that we would see him leaving the NCAA sooner than expected.

    A further solicitation of votes in the RPI recruit poll http://board.uscho.com/showthread.ph...36#post5147736

    Just for the heck of it, I will calculate how accurate everyone is. I will award one point for each correct predication (on roster or not on roster) for each of the 17 selections (all but except Mr. Meyer).

    If anyone wants to change their selections due to additional info since you posted, just add a post containing things like "add Curadi" and/or "remove additional forwards". There is no need to retype the entire list. I will use any changes posted until the day before the official recruit message is posted on the RPI website. Although that message is not necessarily identical to the roster, it usually is, and if it isn't it is quite close.

    could JD'A be on way out of Toronto? If Kadri or Schenn are not part of Burke's expected “big move”, the deal will likely be a package of prospects like Jake Gardiner, Jesse Blacker, Matt Frattin, Brad Ross, Greg McKegg, Jerry D’Amigo, Joe Colborne or Josh Nicholls as well as restricted free agents Carl Gunnarsson or Tyler Bozak, along with one or two high draft picks.
