    Nice work.

    Just a few updates on your list

    a.) Aaron Irving did not sign with Nashville. Like Duke & Iverson, he's a free agent now
    b.) Jack Walker was drafted by Toronto
    c.) Connor Bleakly has signed with St. Louis
    d.) Osipov in Vancouver is an import

    Well done. It's shocking the lack of 20 year olds there are and the amount that will likely return to the WHL, especially on the defensive end of things. Do you always wondered if you could pry Alfaro or zbrovsky out of Kootney but doubt that with only 2 20's there. I know the Pats are pretty much set down the centre but Alfaro I think could play a wing. Big kid and I think would look great of the side boards, zborosky on the right side with Brooks and Wagner would be frightening if you could get him. Their cupboards are a little weak and they need all the prospects they can get if the want to be strong when there first picks breaks in. Betting they are looking for 16-17 year olds, that is the only reason I mention Kootney. Red deer is really in tough as well from your list. Bobyk available. I question his mobility though after the playoffs last year. Perhaps butcher would be a good option if available but would like to see a bit more size. He will get you those 50-70 at least points though. Is he a leader though? I would just wonder if the Pats should wait and see who come back to the WHL in the fall and perhaps catch a team that wants to rebuild and swap a leader/20 year old for a couple of prospects. Please keep the draft picks though. It's been a few lean years with picks

    Thanks 'WesternHockeyScout'! Meant to say that if anyone notices anything off, let me know and I'll update it.

    Forgot Bleackley already signed and Walker was drafted this year. Actually remember last second that Abols was drafted this year, so knew I must have been forgetting a couple others. I had Irving 'signed' on my original list from a couple months ago, so must have been an ATO that I originally mistook. Osipov just slipped through the cracks. Thanks again!

    I'll try to keep it updated as things change.

    Feel free to speculate on who could end up where or who you might like to see in a Pats jersey. After looking at it all laid out this way myself, there maybe COULD be a few OA defensemen the Pats may be interested in instead of Harrison and probably wouldn't be too hard to acquire.

    Good stuff Fight Guy and good points all. After each team retains their choice of OA's there won't be a whole bunch left but then again there may be. There will be a few OA's returned to their club teams and some teams may decide to go with a lower number if they want to provide minutes for their younger prospects (rebuilding clubs). These clubs may be more willing to move an OA if it fits with their program. It may be tough for each teaam to secure the number and quality of OA that they might want.

    With regards to the PATS there is still some uncertainty but I would think Brooks will be returned to junior to hone his game and see if he can take it to another level. Plus it allows him to grow bigger and stronger and gain some man strength. After Brooks there is Harrison who regardless of my bias, has come a long way and proven himself a lot. Last season he recorded .53 points per game over his .29 from the year before. It wouldn't be a stretch to see him at the 50 point or greater plateau. Unless the Pats could replace him with a quality 19 year old, I don't see him going anywhere. If they chose to go with three OA forwards one can only salivate at the possibilities; R. Gardiner, Vanstone, and to a lesser degree Glover. All right wing PA guys, and some who may be available. Then there is Butcher out of MH and Folk out of Lethbridge. Any two of those guys along with Brooks would send a message the Pats are trying to do something special. They would be dynamic up front. The reality is that the cost may be too high to get two forwards notwithstanding the high return we should get for Harrison.

    I think with his potential for 45-50 points Harrison isn't likely going anywhere. Therefore the Pats would be looking at one OA. I would love to see Gardiner here but that's unlikely as PA likely won't part with a 92 point man, at least not without a huge return. After that I feel the Pats might likely target Butcher or Folk. At this point the cost to replace Harrison might be too costly, so my take is he stays.

    There are a lot of moving parts to this puzzle and it will take some time to flow out. Does Henry signs and report? Does Lockner sign and report? We know Erik Gardiner will be here. That could inject three new forwards here that would have to play. Somebody has to go. And then of course they are likely to keep one or two new d-men, so that could mean a lot of movement in the trade market. The way it looks there will be some gut wrenching decisions. My take is that the some the bubble guys could be: Cole, Smith, Elmer, Hilsendager, Woods and perhaps others I've forgotten.

    I know there will be some gut wrenching on the likelihood that big pieces of the puzzle could be dealt, however if some high end prospects commit to the Pats they will need to reciprocate and make room. A good prospect like Woods might be a carrot the Pats could use to pry Butcher from MH. They like the smaller type forwards. On the flip side if either Henry, Lockner or both do not report, there are one or two more spots available. Of course the chance that Holmes or another prospects blows the doors off could create another dilemma. It's the same type of dilemma that occurs if Brooks blows them away in TO and they sign him and send him to the Marlies.

    Like everything in JR Hockey, building your team is very dependent on a ton of factors. One or two fortuitous breaks and your in a positive great place. A couple of things go against you and your entire season changes negatively. Every year some players progress as expected and some regress unexpectedly. The team out of camp often doesn't resemble the one after the trade deadline. In order to win a championship a lot of things have to go right. You need to play well, stay injury free, hope players respond as expected, plan well and adjust well on the fly if you encounter hiccups. The Pats look to have a good team on paper but we all know that's not where the game is played. This is a big year for them and they will need to ensure they are all in. I feel they have good windows for accomplishment for two years. We will all see how the moving parts come together. When you look at teams like London one can see that just having two good lines isn't enough. You need at least three high end lines, strong puck moving D, and a solid goalie. You can never have too much talent.

    Also Dario Meyer from the Oil Kings is an import who will not be returning. He is under contract with SC Bern for the upcoming season

    Andreas Schumaker is an overage import who will not return. He is playing with Stenungsunds HF this season

    Patrick Maeir, overage import from Moose Jaw, will play for HC Nove Zamky next season

    Thanks again for putting it together. It's a nice reference

    Thanks again! This was another thing I thought about doing, but wasn't into looking up more players at the time. Because you pointed it out though, they're added.
