Kinda makes me excited to think that 2-5 years from now we'll be seeing these guys on the lines trying to make a name for themselves like we saw earlier in the decade with Datsyuk and Zetterberg when Yzerman, Shanahan, Fedorov, Hull, etc. were still here. I still remember back then in their training camp (or preseason game, can't remember), when the young Zetterberg wowed the veterans with his play and netted 2 goals. With all the talk he got, you couldn't help but think him and Datsyuk were the future, and look at them now.

That's how I feel about some of these prospects. Kids like Tatar and Jarnkrok just have a real good attitude and I know it's premature to go about it like that but you just can't help but think that when they're called up and get their shot, that they'll soon be wowing the veterans.

No love for Joakim Andersson?


Franzen barely plays like Holmstrom as it is.

Jocke, well, maybe they'll try to turn him into a Homer but I don't see that happening.

right handed?!?!?!?! He will not fit on the wings.


But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

Yeah actually get him on the Chelly routine or the Gary Roberts routine. Worked for Stamkos this past offseason I would say.


Stamkos was tiny when he was drafted. I agree that he benefited from putting weight on last summer. Once you can physically compete the skill comes out.

Both Zetterberg and Datsyuk were about 150 lbs soaking wet when they were drafted... give him a chance to grow... I love this pick.

Wonder why players grow so quick every time they travel overseas.

yea frazen stays out of the penalty box! not to mention frazens play hasnt deminshed. holmstroms slow. the first two picks were what the needed. go to hockeysfuture.com look at our talent. We dont have much as far as high skill. great draft for the wings getting a power foward and a bunch of centers we need.

Strength training. The NHL and AHL value physical strength more highly than does the SEL, KHL or other European leagues, so bulking up a bit is a useful thing.

How did you come up with this? Physical training at least here is Finland is overvalued in both soccer and hockey. Many Finnish coaches prefer big athletic guy over skilled ones.

I think the big difference is that things get more professional when you want to play in the NHL and the big reason for that is the money. It's not about valuing, it's purely about economics and what teams can afford. I'd also say the use of roids and stims is factor.

North America is just a better hockey breeding ground.

It's quite obvious, look at the Olympics and World Juniors.

North America is just the best.

Quantity provides quality.

Mexico is also part of North America, kinda weird.

Funny too... I have a buddy in the Army and he is in Germany. Says that people actually dress up to go Mickey D's over there. And they serve beer? :blink: Please correct me if I am wrong on that one. Sounds great to me.

Simple. Look at style of play. While physical fitness and endurance are vital, the European style is a bit less physical. Less hitting means you don't need as much muscle to actually hit with.

Kid's got talent. Doesn't look like his lack of size scares him from getting into scoring lanes either, which is good. Drove to the net hard for a guy his size.




That's cuz none of the defensemen look like this:

Who cares about his stats anyhow... I just can't wait to see all the spins on his name if he ends up sucking.

IIRC, no NHL defensemen looks like that anymore either.
