If the Guelph Storm is interestedin Barrie Colts blueline rock Dalton Prout, they'd better be ready to make a big offer.
Word is that the St. Mike's Majors have been calling and the asking price in return is Majors young stud defenceman Stu Percy.

Tony, getting Prout means another overager has to go - Loftquist or Van Laren. What does he bring that they don't besides an obvious mean streak and is he worth mortgaging the future for?
I thought Kelly said at the Town Hall he wouldn't trade the future for today.

I think Prout is considered the best all-round defenceman who will be available. Better defensively than both Van Laren and Lofquist, better than Van Laren offensively for sure. Tougher than both of them.
I don't think the Storm would want to give up Matt Finn for him (which would be the equivalent of Percy), but I think they would give up another younger player or, hopefully for them, one or two of the second round picks they have accumulated.
Of course it would all be moot if Prout doesn't want to come to Guelph.

Lost in the mix is Maggio. On his return Guelph has 8 capable defencemen.
When Maggio does return, I would tend to believe Lofquist or Van Laren can be moved although both currently contribute - Lofquist offensively (I disagree that he is above standard defensively) and Van Laren defensively.
Isn't Maggio expected to be the "Prout" of the Storm?

Larry said on the broadcast this past Friday that he would not be returning from his injury untill somewhere in the new year. i would say he is not in the same class as Prout is.

Never mind a defenceman we need somebody to replace that selfish number 22 undisciplined and somebody that can play left wing
