How do I vote? I guess all the hype is for Luc, so I'll throw in for seeing him.

I'd also like to see Mason Raymond, but he is at least 2 years away from the NHL.
Give a man a match and he is warm for an hour. Light him on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life.

Great update jc, Luc should be a lock for a starting job with the Canucks next year.
The way he played at the WJ's says he's ready for the show.

I would also think Edler will start next year with the Moose and continue learning the NA game. Alex has played great this year and every time I watch him he's getting better. You never know maybe he might join Luc with the big boys, but probly a year with the Moose would be better for him?

A couple of notes - Jannik Hansen played in the WJC under 20 Division 1 Group A tournament in Slovenia Dec 11-17, 2005... 3 goals and 1 assist in 4 games played.

Fredheim signed a letter of intent with Colorado College:

http://www.coloradocollege.edu/athletic ... ts/hockey/

excerpt:
Colorado College has received signed letters of intent from three recruits who will join the Tigers for the 2006-07 season. They are: Kris Fredheim (Campbell River, B.C.), a 6-2, 183-pound defenseman with the Notre Dame Hounds of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League; Dan Quilico (Thousand Oaks, CA), a 5-9, 170-pound left wing with the Trail Smoke Eaters of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League; and Billy Sweatt (Elburn, IL), a 6-0, 180-pound forward with the U.S. National Team Development Program's Under-18 squad and younger brother of CC junior defenseman Lee Sweatt.

I voted Bourdon, but I also am looking forward to Schneider --- but we probably won't see Cory until 2008 or so.
