Yup. my thoughts too. NOT NHL msterial unless the kid puts on some bulk.

A lot of these kids are underweight when they're drafted. He's got time to put on some bulk.

well it also looks like he has a mean streak and can play a physical game which is good.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.

This kid will get some great training at UW. Mike Eaves is an awesome hockey coach and UW has a history of putting out some great defensemen. Hell, Chelios played there! I see nothing but upside for this kid!

They're only the most awful, Godless band of an entire generation.

But I guess if you're into rehashed, unoriginal top 40 tripe, Nickelback is the band for you.

Kane weighs 160. Is he not NHL material?

Edited by ARice89, 23 June 2007 - 12:16 PM.

In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

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.
What time is it??? IT'S HOMER TIME!!!

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.


No, it's definitely excitement.

Hey wait a second here...did we just draft the kid from the movie "Big"?

Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

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

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.

Congratulations, you just descibed 99.9% of the hockey players we'll see drafted in the next 10 years.

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.

I'm not very happy with this pick tbqh, but all is forgiven since we got Andersson in the third round.
