Yeah, I'll go with the red wing scouts on there drafting abilities vs. wannabe scouts at any network. They should have earned the ability to make unpopular picks without scrutiny. Funny how he backslides "worst draft in 10 years, blah blah blah. But we will see how they develop." In 5 years he will be singing the praises of our prospects. We have all watched this movie before....

Sheesh, between him, Dekeyser and Miller I think we have the 3 skinniest players in the NHL


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

An interesting comment I read of Holland's during camp were, and I'm paraphrasing, "Everyone looked like prospects except for Mantha." I wonder if we'll see him called up if there's some injuries at the wing this season.

Unless he suddenly turns into Yzerman 2.0 during the prospect tourney or camp, I seriously doubt that.  He'll spend at least another year in the Q before turning pro.

Another year? I'm mistaken, I thought he was done there for some reason. That's fine though, he'll have plenty of time to fill out his frame then.

At 18 & with his frame, I doubt he's ready to step up and play against men in the AHL, let alone make the jump all the way up to the bigs.  He'll still have one more year at least in juniors & if he does manage to add some bulk and consistent complete level, he'll might be in GR starting in 2014-15 as a 19-20 year old.

Agreed, and then I think we're in for a treat.

Wonder what that means for Big Buff.

Trade everyone over the age of 30 and bring all the kids up. I want to be like the Oilers.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Winnipeg Hockey mentioned he could develop into a number one Winger and was possibly rated to go higher in the draft

The Wings jersey is very slimming.

He looks good in a Wings jersey. I hope this kid pans out to be the real deal.
