    A number of players that were summarized from this a couple of years ago will be interesting to see when they arrive on campuses in the next couple of years as to how they match up to the scouting reports. Some things can change in 2 to 3 years
    I follow the Neutral Zone on twitter and no matter how many stars they rate the player, it's always a glowing review that makes you wonder when they aren't a 5 star recruit. Why can't we all just be honest with each other? The truth is the truth.

    Pretty sure the coaches know how to look beyond the hype!

    Very true...Plus you can read between lines a bit with things they are not saying or kind of glossing over.

    The coaches and the players know reality/look beyond the hype, but if the Neutral Zone wants credibility with fans, they need to not hype everyone like they are the next Pavelski or Heatley.

    Not trying to be a shill for NZ but to be fair here are some additional summaries from that report that are not hype...Both players are, I believe, uncommitted.

    Jenna Hallice, 2001, F, East Coast Wizards – "Small forward with an excellent hockey IQ and average skill set. Her general skills do not allow for separation from her peers, but instead her decisions with the puck and ability to make smart, simple plays will allow her to be a valuable member of any team she plays on. Very good with small, touch-oriented area passes. A valuable third line center type."

    Olivia O’Brien, 2001, F, Tabor Academy – "Above average tools and only needs improved separation speed to become a top six forward on any team. Solid skill set and an above average shot. She understands the game and can create offense. A borderline D1 player who could blossom into a no- brainer with added strength and speed."

    (Just a coincidence that I used East coast players as examples...)

    I agree that College coaches usually know what theyíre looking for and itís unlikeky that a D1 coach is going to be influenced by reading a scouting report online from Neutral Zone. Afterall, if the NZ scouts are so good why arenít they coaching themselves instead of posting on the Internet? Guessing more parents & players follow NZ than D1 coaches.

    Its amazing how NZ scouts can break down a players complete career from watching one game. The scouts are amazing

    She's already committed to BC; unless you want and try and flip her.
