Wait so the Canucks dont consider Kassian a prospect?

Wait I thought Hockeys Future was the definitive source on who is and who is not a prospect....

Don't the Canucks know this :D

Strange enough I asked Corey Pronman of Hockey Prospects the same thing last season when he did a review and omitted Tanev. He told me he had considered Tanev a graduated player. I said maybe you wanna tell MG & AV the same. Makes things easier :D and of course Tanev played most the season in Chicago as a prospect.

Hockey Future, now that's another story if you look at the Western Conference

review they still have Luc Bourdon as the # 1 prospect :D IMO it seems to be falling off presumably because they can't get writers....there's your chance Tator, and don't hide your light under a bushel :D

In the U20 World Cup that ended Aug 26, Corrado fought Tinordi to stick up for a teammate...

Keep in mind that Tinordi is about 6'7"...

Yeah Tinordi is huge and if you recall when MG traded for Ballard and gave away his 1st round pick he said then if he couldn't get the guy he wanted (which was Tinordi ) he used the pick as a trade. But man you have to give Corrado full marks for not thinking twice and jumping right in there

Does anyone know where Patrick McNally is at? I found this article but is he not playing anywhere?

Did Gillis actually state that Tinordi was the guy he wanted, or is this just speculation?
