Your scouts have some serious issues. Malenstyn was, without question, the most dominant player in the tournament. He scored at will. A few highly touted players such as White and Hannoun were a bit of a disappointment as they didnt dominate like i thought they would. Only players i saw who had the capability to take over and control a game were Malenstyn and Gingras. However, i did not see every team play and i am sure i missed a few.

Hannoun not on All-Star team?

Hannoun was suspended when our scouts were to view him. There is no doubt that he is a high end talent.

How did Hanoun not make the 1st or 2nd All-Star team?
Robbie Johnson and Davis Kock were the big surprises to me, both looked very strong despite reputations for "soft" play.
Good to see Wilms getting recognition after strong showings in both the Super-Series and Chilliwack. Definitely should be top-ranked goalie in BC at this point.
Fabbro took some heat for his rugged play, but to see a high-skill player like that have an 'edge' to his game was impressive.

I tend to agree on the Malenstyn comment from 940am, though "scored at will" is a bit over the top.
I never thought about mentioning Gingras before because all I can remember about Langley was that stunning collapse against NSWC. Nevertheless, he IS a big talent ... I'll be surprised if he's not drafted in the first round.
Also, while OHA knocked off BWC -- and they deserve full credit for that -- it still seems clear that if the Bruins can start to get some solid goaltending they will be the team to beat through Provincials.

I had an opportunity to view the SSAC play on Tuesday night this week. They definitely have deep team there is not doubt about that. Benson is a strong player, but he was contained by some CAC defense all night. CAC is not a talent laden team at all (I believe they have 7 first years), but #20 Dalton Middleton and #4 Dudley - two defensman played him well. Dudley is a first year I understand. Dalton, even though smaller, took the body to Benson a few times - including a great hip check on a toe drag. SSAC outshot CAC badly but Skinner at the other end had to be very sharp. I actually think SSAC did not like to the hitting in the game. Excuse the spelling. Anyone else at this game

Thanks for your great insight, 3:37. Why say anything at all?

Hanoun did not make "all star", and Shugrue did? How the heck do those make sense?

I thought it curious that the 2 teams (Hawks & Monarchs) ranked highest in MB AAA Bantam were placed in pool where arguably 4 of the 5 teams would be ranked in the bottom half in MB.

Not to take anything away from Thiessen, Loschaivo, Martin or the other players; they are some of MBs best talent no doubt, and they took full advantage of playing teams that were beatable by 18-1 and 12-1 scores, while Warriors, Sharks, Pembina Valley, Parkland got to play all the middle of the pack teams.
Assuming at the Dec showcase the schedules may be reversed.
Having said that, a great tournament for all kids.

Adamyk was stellar all show case. could be better than kubic

Also, Hockey Manitoba messed up with the Winnipeg Warriors roster.. They aren't included/added yet to the point leaders. Look to see some guys be pushed off the list as most of the Warriors had a great showcase tournament.
