    new york post

    on the progress of Arron Ness (from gopher's coach lucia)

    Lucia, for his part, sees Ness being a big part of the Gophers' return to the tournament.

    "I think Aaron's made a jump from the previous year," Lucia said. "I think that's going to pay off this year.

    "He's got a real good head for the game. He knows where to go with the puck. He doesn't make very many mistakes when it's on his stick."


    AROUND THE BOARDS: Islanders prospect Rhett Rakhshani, a senior forward at the University of Denver, was nominated for WCHA Player of the Week after scoring the game-winning goal in the No. 4 Pioneers' win over Ohio State last Friday. Islanders prospect Blake Kessel, a sophomore defenseman at New Hampshire, was named to the Top Performers list in Hockey East after posting five points

    Personally I think Blake Comeau is not used properly, if you put him on a line with a scorer, you will see him blossom, he is a strong skater, with good hands, not a lot of speed but enough to make things happen, put him with Tavares and Okposo and see how he does.

    islanderspointblank.com ranked the top 11 prospects currently on the bridgeport roster.
    since it's only a sound tigers player list you wont see players like dehaan or ness.

    the bridgeport prospect outlook is not really all that exciting.

    11. Micheal Haley: Likeable longshot could become a fourth line irritant. Arguably the best middleweight frequent fighter in the organization since Garry Howatt.
    0-2-2 and 57 PIM in 10 games
    Upside: Fourth-line NHL forward
    Worst-case: minor leaguer


    10. Dustin Kohn: Defenseman who needs to establish an identity. Not skilled enough to be a puck-mover, so far not rugged and mobile enough to be a shut-down. Time is running out for 2005 second round pick to prove he can be an NHL regular.
    2-5-7 in 17 games
    Upside: No. 6 defenseman
    Worst-case: depth defenseman


    9. Mark Katic: Third round pick from 2007 has played fairly solid defense, not an easy task for a first-year pro. He’ll develop in Bridgeport for a while.
    1-2-3 in 16 games
    Upside: No. 5 defenseman
    Worst-case: depth defenseman


    8. Robin Figren: Early stage of North American pro career for talented wing has been borderline disastrous. Healthy scratches, struggles to learn system, little to no impact on games. It’s still early for the 2006 third round pick, but the signs have not been good.
    0-1-1 in 12 games
    Upside: Third-line NHL forward
    Worst-case: Not an NHL player, back to Europe in a few years


    7. Joel Rechlicz: After starting season with the Islanders, the 6-4 Wrecker was sent to Bridgeport so the prospective enforcer can improve his game while the clock is actually running. Played fourth line and now is injured.
    0-0-0 and 30 PIM in 6 games
    Upside: Fourth line NHL enforcer-agitator
    Worst-case: Minor leaguer


    6. Andrew MacDonald: The Ted Nolan-backed sixth round draft pick in 2006 continues to develop properly on the farm. When the Islanders need another defenseman, if they don’t acquire one on waivers or in a trade MacDonald is the most likely recall.
    1-6-7 in 17 games
    Upside: No. 4 NHL defenseman
    Worst-case: NHL/AHL depth player


    5. Justin DiBenedetto: 2008 sixth round pick a long way from racking up all those points in the Ontario League. Will likely need at least two years in the AHL to prove he can be a scorer in the big leagues. His two goals this season came on the power play in the same game. Welcome to the pros, DiBo.
    2-3-5 in 17 games
    Upside: Second-line NHL forward
    Worst-case: Not an NHL player


    4. Trevor Smith: Three years after signing as a free agent after his sophomore year at New Hampshire, Smith continues to improve as an offensive forward. Scored 30 goals in the AHL last year. Needs to improve his consistency and his battle level.
    6-4-10 in 17 games
    Upside: Third-line NHL forward and power play
    Worst-case: NHL/AHL depth player


    3. Matt Martin: First-year pro has performed as expected. He’s raw and probably will never be a big point producer, but if brought along right could be a strong intangibles player for the Islanders for years to come.
    2-4-6 and 42 PIM in 17 games
    Upside: Third-line NHL power wing and intangibles player
    Worst-case: NHL Fourth-line forward


    2. Jesse Joensuu: Everyone knew the 6-4 Finn would take time to become a North American-style power wing. Still just 22 years old and big forwards traditionally take longer to develop, but looks like he’s got a long way to go. Second round pick in 2006 needs to skate harder, play smarter and use his size.
    1-6-7 in 16 games
    Upside: Second-line NHL skill and size wing
    Downside: You don’t even want to think about it


    1. Mikko Koskinen: The 6-7 goalie is No. 1 for three reasons: the competition (see above) is not sterling, he’s unquestionably gifted and the reality is he has to be.

    When the Islanders traded one second round pick, two thirds and a fourth to move up and take Calvin de Haan (2-8-10 in 15 games this season with OHL Ottawa), they couldn’t miss with the first pick in the second round. With so many gifted kids still on the board, including 18-year old Ryan O’Reilly of the Colorado Avalanche, the Islanders took the big goalie from Finland. He’s out with a hip injury and expected back around Christmas. Koskinen, 21, has the ability and comes with expectations.
    1-1-0, 2.45 GAA, .902 save pct.
    Upside: No. 1 NHL goalie
    Worst-case: No. 2 NHL goalie

    Minus: Kirill Petrov and Team Russia were eliminated, somewhat miraculously, 3-2 in overtime by Switzerland. When Petrov and Russia were not running it up and padding their stats against patsies like Latvia, they lost against their only tough opponent (Sweden) and lost to the Swiss tonight. Now they’re in the Fifth Place game. Petrov’s stock remains the same: he’s a very skilled prospect with a lot to prove whenever he gets to Bridgeport.

    Minus: For some reason, the Islanders’ official website has ignored the team having seven prospects in the prestigious World Junior Championships. Some PB readers think I’m off for excluding Jyri Niemi from my top prospects list. Niemi is captain of Team Finland and his NHL club is not even acknowledging his presence at the tournament.

    Thought the Islanders were all about the future, all about building from within. Nothing on Ryan Jankowski and his staff’s successful draft picks. Nothing on Petrov, whom many fans are salivating over. Nothing on having two of the seven defensemen on Canada’s blueline. Wonder what it all means. It’s one thing to not over-promote your prospects. It’s another to ignore them.

    glad that we have prospects playing in the tourney. i guess i wish the team was glad as well.

    Yeah, I'm surprised this has kindve been ignored, hopefully some of these players can turn out to be NHL layers for us, r at least build up there stock so we can trade them (hey it is inevitable with some of them)

    Yeah that's possible, I really don't want to trade any of them either way but i'd trade prospects like these for a proven star any day, because chances are these prospects will be nothing. Like in all honesty if we could get Kovalchuk without trading anyone on the current team I would do it.
