    Other than the previously Drafted players the only Free Agent so far is Tommy Marchin who’ll be in Winnipeg’s camp. About 15 NHL Teams still haven’t posted their Development Camp Rosters.

    Totally agree with his influence! I think we just cant overemphasize importance of Being Ernst in this season of Brown Hockey. I'm a huge fan of him!

    Matt Lorito is leaving Albany for the NHL two year two way contract with the Red Wings. Nothing yet as to whether Bobby Farnham and Yann Danis will stay with the Devils organization. Harry Z signed a one year NHL two way contract with Nashville.

    Kdiff: Have you gone to see Team Harlow play? I heard the other day that Nick Lappin is playing on the same line with Jimmy Vesey and Jack Eichel. Not a bad line

    Not yet! I think my friend, who is a BC season ticket holder, and I are planning to go to the game on 7/13 since there will be lots of Brown and BC guys prominently featured. I'd LOVE to see Lappin playing with those two! Can you imagine that line on the same team at the college level? I'd be surprised if all three players didn't get to 50 points.

    TSN's Bob McKenzie reported that Matt's contract for the first year is $575K in the NHL and $300 in AHL and second year is $650/275; and that he received a signing bonus of $50K. He also added that Detroit got a "gem".

    From a Penguins logger reporting on Sam Lafferty at Penguins Prospects Camp. Note his comment on Bobby Farnham.

    SAM LAFFERTY

    BLUE MOUNTAIN MAN

    The Johnstown area has always been a strong hockey market, which was proven again when the team was named Kraft Hockeyville and hosted a well-received exhibition game between the Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning last fall.

    The State College area is an emerging hockey hotbed as well, with the Penn State program on the upswing and Terry Pegula bringing an NHL exhibition game between Buffalo and Minnesota to the University Park campus this fall.

    Penguins prospect Sam Lafferty, a Hollidaysbur native, hails from right in the middle of those two towns.

    Its good to see, Lafferty said. I know a lot of my friends went to that exhibition game in Johnstown. What a cool environment that was. I think the game is steadily growing in the area and its good to see.

    A fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Lafferty has put up modest numbers in his two seasons at Brown University since being chosen. In his estimation, though, his prospect development is on the right track.

    I think just all-around, just staying on the right path, trying to get a little better, Lafferty said. I think that adds up over time. I definitely feel a step faster this year. I feel good.

    These days, Lafferty is fighting a perception problem when he lets people know he plays at Brown. The colleges most famous hockey alumnus, among Penguins fans anyway, is agitating winger Bobby Farnham.

    No, Lafferty has to tell people, all Brown forwards dont spend all their shifts flying around the ice like their hair is on fire like Farnham does.

    Lafferty is more of a two-way forward with good athleticism and smarts who can kill penalties and chip in a bit offensively. He doesnt play like Farnham, but he does look up to him.

    Hes done a great job, fighting to stay in the NHL, Lafferty said. Hes a guy I can definitely learn from.

    Nick Lappin to Devils prospect Camp. No surprise there.

    Re: Brown Hockey 2016-17: The Importance of Being Ernst

    Comments about Nick from Albany's coach and as well about Matt. Coach Kowasky was a really big Lorito supporter

    Q: What stands out about forwards John Quenneville and Nick Lappin?

    A: Well, Lap, he came in, same thing, we didnt want to rush him. (Assistant GM) Tom Fitzgerald had a lot of good reports, was very high on him. Now that I know him, we were lucky to get him because he was certainly courted by a bunch of teams and he chose us. We eased him into the lineup, the old American League schedule, three games in three nights. By that third game, I think he scored the game winner late versus Toronto with 10 seconds left or something. He made a seamless transition to pro hockey. For some guys its tough to do, its tough to do at that time of year when theres a lot of pressure in the games and you want to win and youre pushing to get comfortable. We had a bit of cushioning which allowed us to take a look at (Kevin) Rooney and Lappin and Zacha. But hes got a nose for the net and the puck seems to find him and he finds it and hes got a knack for big goals. If thats something that continues in his career, hes going to have a successful one. But he really stepped in and scored goals for us and continued to score big goals for us right through the playoffs. Great kid. Good work ethic. I think hes just starting to get his footing here and if his confidence is where it should be at an all-time high Im very interested to see him at training camp. Quenneville I got to see last year, watched him a bit in the Memorial Cup. A skilled guy. Can make plays. Itll be interesting to see him at the pro level where hes playing against men as far as his play without the puck. His compete level, his willingness to go to those hard areas. I think its there. Whether its there consistently or not, well see. But theres no question hes a world-class skill and another guy that I think we will look to, or should be able to play that two-way hockey that is always a huge asset

    Q: Whats the value of seeing the players on tryouts?

    A: I dont want to say diamonds in the rough but there are certainly kids you can get a look at. This is the first year weve had some kids that are draft eligible next year. These are kids you get, quote/unquote a free look at it. But if you can pull a Matt Lorito or a Conor Sheary out of one of these development camps, kids who really werent on anybody elses radar, you get a free look at them and you bring them back at training camp, they have a good camp, sign them to an American League deal, NHL deal, and it works out,

    I saw a tweet that said Blake Weyrick is headed to Canisius this fall. Interesting.

    Have to be excited with what the staff has done on the recruiting trail this summer. Depending on who matriculates versus playing another year of junior the Incoming class of 2017-2018 is shaping up to be a great one.

    A bleak assessment, though one that's tough to argue.

    I for one am on the optimistic side.

    Our defense returns 5/6th intact, with two highly regarded incoming recruits: Joe Maguire (USHL) and Zach Giutarri (BCHL). Everyone is a year older and stronger and we should be able to find 6 solid/reliable players out of a very deep stable.
    Defenseman:
    Gottlieb McArdle
    Tegtmeyer Schoo
    Wood Cooper
    Maguire Giutarri
    Scherer, Rossi, Wynee

    While other than Gottlieb perhaps none have the ability to be top tier puck moving playmakers, there is no reason why due to friendly competition to get in the lineup five guys cant emerge out of that group to produce reliable defense two nights a week. While quantity does not always lead to QUALITY, I have found that it does not hurt your changes at producing it.

    Better defense ALWAYS leads to better goaltending... and closer games. I think the Bears will surprise some people in 2016-2017.

    P.S. My early nominee for Most Improved Player in the entire ECAC is Charlie Corcoran (who I could see centering Marchin's line)

    I'm with you - I think our defense will be vastly improved and a strength of the team. Gottlieb, Schoo, and Scherer all have good potential and the incoming freshmen look like they can contribute right away. We could potentially roll with five underclassmen and Josh McArdle on D (which may lead to some growing pains, but could be a good investment for the long haul). I also thought Tegtmeyer looked good toward the end of last season; it'll be interesting to observe his continued development.

    Against Holy Cross on October 28th, I'd like to see:

    Gottlieb-McArdle
    Scherer-Tegtmeyer
    Schoo-Giuttari

    I think that gives us a good mix of puck-moving and shot-supressing abilities.

    The forward corps is a bit more murky. Can anyone step up, whether individually or by committee, to replace the lost production of Lappin and Naclerio? I'd bet decent money that Lafferty, Willman, Bird, and Corcoran will see jumps in their point totals, but will that be enough?

    Agree on all counts. With regards to the forwards. I feel as if the addition of Gessert and Dodd, both of which are bump and grind "tough to play against" bottom six guys, the bottom six should be very strong. Perhaps not providing consistent scoring punch but atleast will not be (-10) over the course of the season and control the puck below the goal line.

    The big question remains as you brought up who will be the top six and more importantly will they be able to develop chemistry to the point where we can score 5v5 and Man-Up.
