    I have absolutely no inside knowledge about this move — none.

    But Kimball’s head coach, Tim Whitehead, is damn near a coaching legend in NCAA hockey with Maine. I met him at a Coaches Conference years ago — very impressive man. I don’t even know who AF’s GTHL coach was, but he’d need to be awfully special and experienced to match what Tim brings to the table.

    Maybe he doesn’t want to play for NB and wants everyone to think he’s ncaa kid so he can pick his OHL team of choice. It happens

    Yes, but Hughes never left the Marlies during his MM season for another team.

    Jonathan Melee left Toronto Titans? back home in Ottawa, looks like he will play for Rockland in the U18 league.
    If anyone has some insight that would be great.

    New to this forum, but know this age group very well. I would agree with the assessment of many of the players mentioned. In my opinion the vast majority are first and second rounders. As for Melee he is an exceptional player, strong, fast and can put the puck in the net. He did leave the Titans, most likely a difficult spot to be in where he’s not being used as the top guy. I’m sure they feel his stock will go up playing for Rockland.

    Every kid being drafted in the first round have something exceptional in their game. That being said I actually think his stock went up going to Toronto even if he stayed for just over a month.

    Im sure youre right that his stock will go up playing for Rockland, but I highly doubt he left because he's not used to being the top guy. Melee playing on the Titans was the top guy. Kid is good. From what I've seen of him, not many places he can go and NOT be the top guy. Each game I've seen of the titans before he left, he was the best player on the ice, hands down.

    Easy there cowboy, the kid is ok but let's not stretch it out to much. In Rockland he will play second fiddle to Cedric.

    he was very good every game for Titans i saw as well and if he continues will be one of the top picks come draft day but there is at least another forward on that team thats pretty good too lol, if anything the ontario scouts got a pretty good look at him in the short time he played in toronto where other players in ottawa will only get a few good looks. Playing game in and game out vs other eligible draft picks gives some comparisons as well helps in the drafting process, still dont understand their decision to make this super midget league lol less exposure to me oh well what the heck do i know

    #12 Delic is the other player. One dimensional however. Good hands and puck skills, but in my honest opinion, the Titans haven’t been the same since Melee left.

    Rockland is gonna get the same exposure. Scouts will take any chance to see the team, like Marlies tourney, but there’s a ton of Ottawa region scouts watching. Reminder: Ben Gaudreau played up north, away from ALOT of scouts, but still made an impact on everyone at tourneys and such. Exposure isn’t an issue.

    yes he'll get his looks regardless but its much less exposure than playing in toronto where not only toronto scouts but all other gta sw ontario see them as well at tourneys etc where only ottawa area guys see ottawa kids other than a few tourneys in the year where they make an allstar team such as peterborough tourney...its not the same thing to me but good players will get recognized anywhere its the game to game comparison with the other top kids that is the speculation that scouts have to make with kids playing in ottawa and not vs other top kids each and every game.

    The top talent vs top talent comparison isn’t necessary in my opinion. It’s simply entertaining when it happens. Rutger McGroaty v Zak Lavoie for example. US player vs GTHL player will only see each other a few times, and yet nothing stops them (aside from McGroarty’s question of NCAA) from going top 5 draft.

    Sure but I still disagree the Ottawa league is basically 17yr olds that are left over having not moved onto tier 2 or jrb and a sprinkle of good 16’s harder to determine where their talent level is actually as compared to watching the marlies vs jrc

    Uncle..methinks you are a bit overdramatic rating N B.....when the team is worthy they turn out 3500 a game.....scouting/reporting picks is the problem and maybe Stan.....terrible scouting since moving but a big change last draft not sure why..team is not too communicative....young guys finally getting ice time this year..and there is a 4 lane hiway ,indoor plumbing and electrification....

    In Clarington, there’s their captain Lucas Littlejohn to keep your eye out for. He’s a right shot defence man that plays a solid well rounded game. He is reliable to his team as he takes pride in a defence first mentality. You won’t catch him doing anything stupid like selfishly rushing the puck or being out of position. He is a tough player that puts fear in his opponents as he always takes the body hard and isn’t afraid to mix it up. He is a smooth skater with an accurate hard shot from the point and he also has a good sized frame. Overall, Lucas is a well rounded disciplined player that any team can count on defensively and that coaches would love.

    I know that intheoradio is gone, but has there ever been a replacement site that lists picks for each team?
