Kane weighs 160. Is he not NHL material?

I know, people have to keep in mind these kids are still babies. No kidding at all there, they're still fresh-faced with the baby fat all over on most of them.

They'll have time to grow lean, tough, big and mean for their NHL debuts.

lol, yeah. And he wears 14 especially for Shanny. So who knows, this kid could be the next number 14 in the winged wheel. That would be even a bigger tribute. Not only having number 14, but having it on Shanny's old jersey. This kid must be pinching himself about now.

Yeah, that is also true. But I like his name just because it is my name as well. :D

Patrick Kane will be good but he's no Crosby. He honestly is not NHL ready yet. If he plays more than half a season this year it will only be because the Hawks have such a bad team.

What about the intangibles?

Brother of Brendan Smith is Rory Smith. He also played with St. Michaels Buzzers. Although a little shorter at 6'0 Rory who is 2 years older & weighs in at 187 Lbs. He can also handle the rough stuff & was one of the toughest in the league amassing 254 PIM's.

Conclusion - Brendan Smith will probably fill out into the 200 + Lb side & can probably handle the tough going as well.

Other info?

Brendan Smith - wears number 14 after Brendan Shanahan

Same 1st name.................................hhhhmmmmmmmmm, coincidence????

if he could invite any three people to dinner he would choose: Brendan Shanahan - "my hometown hero",

Brendan Shanahan - "my hometown hero"

Both from Mimico

Brendan Smith played lacrosse for the Mimico Mountaineers Junior club, but had to give it up because of hockey commitments.

2006 playoffs, he played 4 games had 4G 10A 14 PTS. Sounds like he is pretty skilled in lacrosse. Brendan Shanahan was an exceptional lacrosse player & also played in his hometown of Mimico.

A few of Shanahan's older brothers used to coach Brendan Smith in lacrosse.

Brendan Smith is his own talent & his background has been forged with many similarities & connections to Shanahans.

There is a small town connection that has been breeding recent success. Kids from Mimico, which is a very small neighbourhood of Toronto, have been influenced by Shanahan's successs. This town breeds character players. In the last 2 years 3 kids from Mimico have signed NHL contracts, Brendan Smith will be the 4th.

Yeah gee what a stupid thing the Wings did. Getting future talent on D and all. Seeing how we have 3 top defensmen that could be retiring in the next 3 years. Ide say this was an extremely intelligent pick.

LOL, still mad about me telling you that you have no hockey knowledge, eh? Well, you just proved me right again. I never said anything about not taking a defenseman, did I? I wanted a defenseman, but I wanted Petrecki.

Stop talking out of your ass, kid.

Petrecki loves to hit , but thats all he brings to the table. He handles the puck like its a curling stone , Hatcher shoots the puck better.

Smith has offensive and defensive upsides , Is a future top 4 defenceman who can skate with the best of them.

No actually I wasnt even thinking about that. I saw a post that was wrong. And I corrected it. It was a smart pick. And im over anything you had to say about me. I could care less if some chump tells me I have no knowledge of the game of hockey because I like Sergei Samsonov. To even tell someone that over one certain player is totally ignorant. And just shows your level of intelligence. I could care less bro. And dissing our draft pick just shows how clueless you are. You clearly know dick about hockey. So looks like a case of the pot calling the kettle black. :lol: Oh and I've been a college graduate since '05. So the only kid here is you. Little chump.

Oh my! One person agrees with you! Let's COMPLETELY ignore the dozens of people that wanted Petrecki over Smith! That sounds like a smart idea -- one a dumbass like you would agree with. And no, you're still bitter about me insulting me, because, hey, you clearly are clueless. You try to make it sound like you know something, but instead, you're just talking out of your ass. Hey, have you seen those commercials? I bet you star in them.

I also like how you ALWAYS bring up that you're a college graduate. Congratulations, dumbass, it's not exactly hard to graduate from college. Do you think you're the first person to ever do so?

I was also never 'dissing' our draft pick. I said I would have PREFERRED someone else. College didn't help you on that one, eh?

My god, please just leave. You're such an idiot.

Really? Essentially every scouting service out there disagrees: TSN's Top 60 Draft Prospects

From NHL Central Scouting: A stay-at-home defenseman with excellent speed and lateral quickness. Has a strong physical presence on the ice with the ability to make the big hit. Is quick to the puck and makes hard and accurate passes. Needs to improve the consistency of his decision-making and discipline.

From ISS: Does everything hard - passes, shooting, finishing checks. Has good positioning vs the rush, does a nice job of taking away the middle of the ice. He shoots the puck like a pro via a bullet wrist shot and gets his shot through. He as well displays general nastiness that is indeed impressive and as a result it allows him to gain extra space.

I personally don't mind the Smith pick, whatsoever. The Wings obviously see something in him, and some scouts have him ranked a little lower than they should, merely because of the league he was playing in last year. But I would've probably been happier with us taking Petrecki, and I can't blame anyone for having a similar opinion.

Wow , He sounds better then I thought. Guess the Wings might have missed a future great player. But I like Smith , I think he'll be the better defenceman , just not as physical.

Oh I know. I mention it twice and now that means I say it ALL THE TIME! Hahahaha. Talk about someone talking out of their ass. Dude you're a little pissy girl who whines and complains like a *****. Oh and more ppl were happy with the pick, rather then wanting Petrecki. So looks like once again, YOU continue to talk out of your ass. HAHAHA! Absolutely hilarious! Good job chump. You just made yourself look even more stupid. Whinny little *****. :crybaby::lol:

Wow, this is one sad man (kid, actually). I like how you completely ignore every point I made, and instead go back to your childish insults that I THINK are trying to hurt my feelings (not sure though, it's hard to read your posts). I think you misinterpret people being okay with the pick, and people wanting someone else. However, I wouldn't except a moron like yourself to understand that.

So, congrats, you're the second person to ever make my ignore list. No longer will I have to read your posts that involve retarded insults and run-on sentences.

EDIT: Wow, you are in fact the only person on my ignore list. The one that was previously on it got banned. For some reason, I think you're that same person that I once had on my ignore list.

Oh God noooo! Not that!???? First off, you were insulting just as much. So if you cant take it, dont dish it out little girl. And talk about grammar!! :lol::lol: Dude you wanna go back and look at your sentence structuring??? LOL! Thats like Pronger calling someone else a dirty player. :lol: Dude please, keep going. Please. It doesnt fail that you continue to SOMEHOW make yourself look more and more idiotic. Haha! Love it!

Petrecki>>>> Smith sorry that's the way of the draft and apologies to Petrecki as I've probably cursed him. Smith might be a better bit in Detroit.

Yeah, I really see this kid being a good defensive addition after Nick, Schneids, and Cheli retire. We need that defensive core as deep as possible. :thumbup:
