  1. It was to show the type of guy we can expect. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  2. The reality is that this kid is playing in the second tier league there. It's like getting excited about a kid tearing up the ECHL
  3. maybe he's like Joey from Blossom, or Ted "Theodore" Logan
  4. And like I said, expand it to picks 6-10 or whatever you want, you're going to get a similar mix of players. Go back farther than 9 or 10 though, you get higher chances of not getting a star and a lesser chance of getting one. It doesn't change my original point at all.
  5. I used #7 because that's where they're sitting right now. Those players were taken later because they weren't as highly regarded. The players I listed are the types that are generally considered to be worthy of a #7 pick. Similar types went in the 6-9 range. Again, some busts, some that ended up being elite level players, but mostly just guys who are good.
  6. At this point both are equally over rated Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  7. Bowman took over a team that was on the edge of breaking out. Tallon built that core and virtually the entire team that won their first Cup. It's like Bowman gets extra credit because of who his dad is. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  8. I think they did ok in net. And Brodeur benefitted a lot from playing in NJs system. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk Lots of North Americans play finesse style hockey. Gretzky, Lemieux, St. Louis, Yzerman, Murphy, Hull, Robitaille... The 97 and 98 Wings teams had a lot of European influences and you say you love them. By calling it European you sound like a Don Cherry wannbe dinosaur. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  9. The point isn't cherry picking busts or superstars. The point is we should be expecting a good player but not necessarily a cornerstone type player. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  10. Looks like it was just leverage to get a better KHL deal Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  11. Must be a Bernie supporter Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  12. Starting at the '14 draft, going back: Haydn Fleury Darnell Nurse Mark Schiefele Jeff Skinner Nazem Kadri Colin Wilson Jakub Voracek Kyle Okposo Jack Skille Rostislav Olesz Ryan Suter Joffrey Lupul Mike Komisarek Lars Jonsson So not many real stars, not many busts either.
  13. so soft
  14. Andersson hasn't been finding much lately. Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
  15. So what was Homer? Kronwall? Ulf Samuelsson? Why call it "power vs European" instead of "power vs finesse?" Sent from my LGLS676 using Tapatalk
