Formenton, Brannstrom, Norris, Brown, Davidsson, Abramov the six prospects I'm looking at following the most in Belleville this season. Should be interesting to see what happens with the goaltending down there too. Veronneau, Balcers, Chlapik likely the first call-ups or at least have the edge in making the team out of camp, and it's hard to see Batherson as anything but a lock. On top of that, Carcone, Parker and Gruden could turn some heads and Szwarz/Rodewald can score some goals. Definitely going to be competitive in Belleville.
I hope Formenton can put it together offensively at the NHL level, he's got ridiculous speed, but can his hands catch up. Someone here said similar last season and it was bang on.
I'm so curious to see some of the rookie tourneys and see some of these guys in action like Davidsson and Norris and to see if Brown has put in the effort needed to come in in tip top shape and take advantage of being a huge call up.
All of this is very exciting to me, actually. The Sens games will be fun to watch - because they'll bring top levels of competitiveness.
