Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Between the shoutout to Sutter winning the cup, and Feaster drafting a high school kid, I'm genuinely concerned. Add the previous guy saying that Mike Richards is his favorite player, and it's like a perfect storm of anti-Geddy.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

i guess 72 basically nailed the descriptions ive found:

Quote:
A highly skilled offensive player with impressive hockey sense and puck control. Passes the puck comfortably and has a pretty good shot. Soft hands. Not a very good skater, however. (EP 2012)
I suppose that having good 'hockey sense' is solid considering that it seems like something instinctual you or arent born with. Skating seems like one of those things that can be improved, but how often do bad skaters turn into great ones? Seems like this kid could put on 15-20 pounds as well, but seemingly all players do when they enter the league.

edit: the highly skilled offensive player that cant skate well narrative seems to fit cheecho sort of, not sure how i feel about that.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I played Canadian prep/high school hockey.

I could've been a 1st round Flames pick.

Little bit of early Sundin hair here from Maatta. I hope his hair has a little more longevity.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

We had Teravainen available at 14th overall.

We had Maatta available at 21st overall.

We take a ****ing Canadian high school player who couldn't crack the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs' AAA rosters growing up in Dundas. So Daddy sends him to a prep school in Quebec and he crushes nobodies.

THERE'S OUR FRANCHISE CENTER OF THE FUTURE, BABY

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

i don't really know anything about him, but hope the Canucks take this Brendan Gaunce kid if he's still there, and they don't trade the pick.

Brendan is big, strong two-way center. He is a good skater with a good stride and he moves well. He can improve his quickness and by doing so, he will become more difficult to stop because with his size, when he gains a step, an opponent is faced with a losing proposition. He is smart and plays the game well both with and without the puck. He makes plays and because he's smart he gets scoring chances and an improved shot can make him that much better offensively. He works without the puck and is also capable of playing on the wing which adds a component of versatility to his game. He will assert with his body, hold off defenders and create advantages for himself and the team with his approach but is not going to be the punishing type. He has shown the ability to raise the level of his play when the games become more demanding and important. He's a very effective player and because he can find a way to contribute in multiple ways, this enhances his play and adds value to a team.

sounds like a regular Bobby "The Brain" Heenan out there...

Geddy Lee and Geddy Lee's brother from 4 years ago...IF ONLY FEASTER WAS GM BACK THEN, I COULD'VE GONE PRO



We played a lot of the programs Stanstead would've played against...and it's really nothing special. I just can't believe this pick.
