OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Last season he played centre.

This season he has played wing on a line with Jack Hughes (2019 likely 1st overall) and Joel Farabee.

Simon Boisvert@simonsnake70

Why isn't defenseman Nils Lundkvist ranked higher on draft lists? I don't see much difference between him and fellow D Adam Boqvist. In fact, at the U-18 Five Nations Tournament, I had a slight preference for Lundkvist.

Jack McBain

C-LW
Center/Left Wing
DOB: 2000/01/06
Age: 18
H/W: 6-3/195
Shoots: L
From Scott Crawford, January 30th, 2018

Skating: Overall, McBain’s skating is impressive for his big size. When he starts from his own end he likes to take charge of the play using his speed. He relies solely on his first two strides to build his agility up to skate to the other end. What is more impressive about his speed skating is that he can control the adjustment for when he enters the offensive zone. He will be manipulating his speed by moving around tight spots such as the corners and behind the opponent’s net, showing how a speed adjustment can clearly confuse the opposing defender. In the defensive zone he is careful not to skate too hard to not only conserve his energy, but be avoid being out of position. Grade: 60

Shot: Both his wrist shot, and slap shot can be dangerous anywhere in the offensive zone. He is dangerous behind the net because he carries the ability to perform quick wrap arounds the goalie will tend to save, but which create secondary chances for his teammates. He can score off the offensive rush, his sweet spot naturally is the corner high slot area after he receives a cross ice pass or will take it on his own. His timing of shots needs to improve as many opposing players successfully block his shots. McBain needs to focus on whether he needs to shoot right away or hold onto the puck and move around the ice to find a better scoring chance. Grade: 55

Skills: Unbelievable skill set that can make opponents look silly. McBain possesses an arsenal of moves that he uses to move around freely in all three zones. He possesses a strong back hand carry that he uses to carry the puck around the deep corners and around the opponent’s net before he makes a play. He possesses a strong cross over which he uses mostly in the neutral zone when he has the space to move around opponents. His best skill comes from his passing ability, for which is not just tape to tape passes. He is extremely accurate with his passes and they move quickly enough that defenders do not have time to penetrate the passing lane. Grade: 60

Smarts: McBain is an interesting player who carries with him the right skill set to be a top prospect. He is smart and understands the game away from the puck. He is a good support player that will fight down low in the corners to help his teammates retrieve the loose puck. His ice awareness is spot on whenever the puck comes in line with his vision. The problem that follows this style of play is he can be a 50/50 player, meaning he will decide when he wants to play. For example, he is not active on the back check some games and will not put a lot of energy in the defensive zone. He will normally sit at top of the defensive zone and wait for the outlet pass to come his way. He also carries a bad habit of making no look passes in all three zones that lead to turnovers. Grade: 50

Physicality: McBain carries with him a big frame and it helps him out with possession of the puck, but the problem lies when he is on the defensive end. He is soft in his own end when he is carrying the puck out of his own end because opponents push him to the boards and he does not know the right position along the boards from which to take a hit. Grade: 50

Summary: Jack McBain deserves to be a top prospect going into the 2018 NHL draft. With his strong skating and skill set he can be a strong second to third line forward that can contribute offensively if the first line is not producing. His big frame and his passion on offense will help him go a long way for his development. He has a habit of making his teammates better around him and he already has the experience of a coach drawing up offensive plays around his style of play. The drawbacks lie with his maturity in terms of consistently playing to the best of his capabilities. He is committed to play at Boston University next season and he may have trouble adapting to the speed of NCAA Division 1 hockey. His no-show on defense is a major problem and opposing coaches will see that and exploit it as much as they can until McBain figures out that he needs to play both offense and defense.

Overall Future Projection (OFP): 55.5

Adam Boqvist

D
Defense
DOB: 2000/08/15
Age: 17
H/W: 5-11/170
Shoots: R

Skating: Skates fast and with ease. He flies on the ice with control and with his head up. He rarely looks like he needs to put power to his strides and can glide fluidly. His skating helps him to take chances as he is able to get back fast. When he puts power to his stride he can separate himself from his opponents. He can travel all over the ice with the puck and control the game with his skating and puck skills. The balance on his skates is good but he needs to get stronger to be able to hold off his opponents when they get a hold of him. Grade: 65

Shot: For a defenseman, Boqvist is a great goal scorer. He has a hard and accurate wrist shot which he can score with from the blueline. His most dangerous shot is when he skates forward and shoot in the same motion. That shot is very hard to read for the goalies he faces. All of the shot types he uses are dangerous though. His great puck skills help him hide a quick release. Grade: 65

Skills: Boqvist has great puck control and quick hands. He is a strong passer and almost never fumbles the puck. His hand-eye coordination is impressive as he plays with his head up when he dekes, passes or shoot the puck. He is creative with the puck and combined with poise and speed he is very exciting to watch. It does not matter on what level he plays, he will always be a player that catches your eyes. Grade: 65

Smarts: Offensively, his vision is exceptional. When he has the puck, he sees what is going on around him almost all the time and he creates space and time for himself and others. When he does not have the puck he is good at getting himself open for a pass or to find open space when he joins the attack. Defensively, Boqvist is good one-on-one shutting down a winger. He uses his skating and active stick to shrink the space for the forward. The weakest link of his game is when his team is under heavy pressure in their own end. In those situations, he sometimes becomes passive and he lacks the strength to defend his own goal. Grade: 60

Physicality: A big part of that weak link and the secret to why he has not yet seen success in senior hockey is Boqvist’s lack of strength in his physical game. He loses his poise when he gets caught in the own end defending the slot. He has good balance on his skates but the lower body strength is not sufficient to win board battles at the senior level. If he tries to hit an opponent he needs high speed into the situation, which he sometimes has. The physical game is still good enough as does not shy away from getting down in the corners quick to win a puck battle. Grade: 40

Summary: After an impressive performance at the U18 Hlinka tournament last fall Adam Boqvist raised on many draft boards. His regular play in Sweden is not in a very good situation. The coach in Brynas, former NHLer Tommy Sjodin, does not seem to trust his defensive game to give him the ice-time he needs to maximize his development. In Allsvenskan he has only played sporadically and has not been able to be there full time as Brynas seems to pick him back up as a 7th defenseman every time they have an injured defenseman. He has played most of his games at the junior level and he has dominated there, scoring goals at an impressive pace. Boqvist is a great prospect and I see him as a can’t miss pick at the top of the draft, probably as the second-best defenseman. His offensive upside is so good and the way the game is going with higher pace and skill the size should not be as decisive a factor any longer. He will need time to develop his senior game and hopefully he will have a better situation soon where he can play more regularly. If he can get stronger and more pro-active in his own end the development will go fast in the right direction. He is far more skilled than most SHL players already. Adam Boqvist has the potential of becoming a number one defenseman at the NHL-level.

Overall Future Projection (OFP): 59.75

1. Rasmus Dahlin, D, 6-foot-2, 181 pounds (Frolunda, SHL): Erik Karlsson, Victor Hedman and now Dahlin. Are you ready for the next franchise-changing defenceman from Sweden?

2. Filip Zadina, RW, 6-foot-1, 196 pounds (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL): The Mooseheads’ import factory strikes again and sends a high-end sniper to the top of the NHL draft.

3. Andrei Svechnikov, RW, 6-foot-2, 186 pounds (Barrie Colts, OHL): Led all scorers at the Five Nations tournament and has put up points at a torrid pace with the Barrie Colts since the world juniors (38 in 22 games).

4. Brady Tkachuk, LW, 6-foot-3, 196 pounds (Boston University, NCAA): Better than older brother Matthew?

5. Adam Boqvist, D, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds (Almtuna IS, Allsvenskan): A fantastic skater and playmaker who isn’t afraid to shoot. If you don’t end up with Dahlin, getting Boqvist is more than just a consolation prize.

6. Noah Dobson, D, 6-foot-3, 180 pounds (Acadie-Bathurst Titan, QMJHL): The secret is out, this righthand shot blueliner is legit.

7. Oliver Wahlstrom, RW, 6-foot-1, 205 pounds (USNTDP): Eight points at the Five Nations (tied with tourney leader Svechnikov) and a solid spot on the U.S U18 top line, Wahlstrom continues to produce big in his draft year.

8. Evan Bouchard, D, 6-foot-2, 193 pounds (London Knights, OHL): Despite his Knights trading away most of their vets, Bouchard has continued to excel in all areas. February’s defenceman of the month in the OHL is also a natural leader.

9. Quinn Hughes, D, 5-foot-10, 174 pounds (U of Michigan, NCAA): One of the most creative players in the draft. An outstanding skater who can create even in the most challenging situations.

10. Isac Lundestrom, C, 6-foot, 185 pounds (Lulea, SHL): As one scout told me “he’s the Swedish Patrice Bergeron.” A lofty compliment, but the comparisons are there.

11. Barrett Hayton, C, 6-foot-1, 191 pounds (Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds, OHL): Extremely focussed and hard-working, Hayton is the “all-in” guy every team loves to have. Nursing a small injury and the ‘Hounds are being careful with him.

12. Joel Farabee, LW, 6-feet, 164 pounds (USNTDP): Hard-working, skilled playmaker who is magical with the puck on his stick.

13. Bode Wilde, D, 6-foot-3, 195 pounds (USNTDP): Offensive defenceman who plays physical. Leads all USNTDP blueliners with 32 points. Hard wrist and slap shot from the point.

14. Joe Veleno, C, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds (Drummondville Voltigeurs, QMJHL): Has excelled since the trade from Saint John to Drummondville where he’s being coached by the excellent Dominique Ducharme.

15. Grigori Denisenko, LW, 5-foot-11, 176 pounds (Yaroslavl Jr.): Great passer who also boasts a good shot. Played on the top line with Andrei Svechnikov and Alexander Khovanov for Russia at the Five Nations tourney.

16. Ty Smith, D, 5-foot-11, 176 pounds (Spokane Chiefs, WHL): Speed and smarts, those are the calling cards of the first overall pick in the 2015 WHL draft.

17. Rasmus Kupari, C, 6-foot-1, 183 pounds (Hermes, Mestis Finland): Not the biggest guy on the ice by any stretch, but can create and finish. And does it all with great bursts of speed.

18. Jesperi Kotkaniemi, C, 6-foot-2, 190 pounds (Assat, Finnish Liiga): Physically he has everything you want – skill, speed, size and he keeps improving.

19. Jet Woo, D, 5-foot-11, 205 pounds (Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL): Has more than a bit of ‘old school’ in his game and isn’t afraid to throw the body around.

20. Rasmus Sandin, D, 5-foot-11, 190 pounds (Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, OHL): Even with the Conor Timmins (COL) injury the ‘Hounds have not skipped a beat on the blue line mainly due to Sandin’s work. Plays tough minutes in all situations.

21. Jared McIsaac, D, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL): Good skater with offensive instincts and has just enough bite in his game to keep players honest.

22. Serron Noel, RW, 6-foot-5, 201 pounds (Oshawa Generals, OHL): Skilled yet raw power forward who keeps getting better and better.

23. Ryan McLeod, C, 6-foot-2, 200 pounds (Mississauga Steelheads, OHL): A slippery and skilled centre, McLeod has high-end vision. As one OHL GM told me “where his brother Michael (NJ) smashes down the front door to score, Ryan sneaks in through the side.”

24. Alexander Khovanov, C, 5-foot-11, 179 pounds (Moncton Wildcats, QMJHL): Great puck distributor with excellent vision.

25. Jacob Olofsson, C, 6-foot-1, 192 pounds (Timra, Allsvenskan): A reliable two-way centre who almost made the Swedish WJC team. Plays a lot with Canucks prospect Jonathan Dahlen.

26. Ryan Merkley, D, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds (Guelph Storm, OHL): Has top 5 skill without a doubt and can complete plays other blueliners only dream about, but other areas of his game have scouts concerned.

27. Benoit Olivier-Groulx, C, 6-foot-1, 192 pounds (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL): No surprise he’s a coach’s dream as a player since his father Benoit is one of the best CHL bench bosses of this generation.

28. Dominik Bokk, LW, 6-foot-1, 180 pounds (Vaxjo, SHL): Another great hockey story for Germany in 2018.

29. Akil Thomas, C, 5-foot-11, 170 pounds (Niagara IceDogs, OHL): Huge ceiling here that Thomas is only now starting to scratch.

30. K’Andre Miller, D, 6-foot-3, 206 pounds (USNTDP): Was outstanding and probably the top U.S defenceman at the U18 Five Nations. Great skating blueliner who isn’t shy about joining the rush.

31. Mattias Samuelsson, D, 6-foot-4, 217 pounds (USNTDP): Big, strong, and safe defenceman. Son of former NHLer Kjell Samuelsson.

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.



Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

You might also take into consideration that I would hunt you down and murder you if you give the Rangers the first overall pick in a year when that player might be a generational talent.
