Good reading

CSTV’s Rink Rat, Elliott Olshansky has been a busy writer with three excellent articles just this week. The first relates to Wednesday’s post about John Curry and the report in the Globe Bruins’ Blog that Jack Parker has been contacting NHL coaches on behalf of the All-American goalie who is a free agent. The RinkRat post addresses the relationship between college coaches and NHL general managers as it impacts the decision as to whether an undergraduate skater might be ready to join the play-for-pay ranks. In the article, Parker says he more comfortable talking with GMs and player personnel managers he already knew from college such as Jack Ferreira, Brian Burke, Paul Fenton and Lou Lamoriello .

Thursday Elliott chimed in on the NCAA vs. Major Junior debate over the best place to develop, and on Wednesay, he examined which NHL teams historically have drafted most heavily from the college ranks.
