Again, not everyone. Just the literal pieces of s***. Anyway, I'm done. Continue talking hockey until you inevitably get banned again.

Theodor Niederbach(5´11") has got 2 brothers, a twin and an older brother(25) who is 6´4" ! Would be interesting to know if his older brother was around the same height at 18....

I think it's too early to start a 2021 Draft Thread just yet, but in any event sign me up for this guy. Kent Johnson, center at Michigan, is playing at a point per game pace as a freshman. Oh, and he's absolutely sick. Reminds me a bit of Jason Spezza.

Watch this be the draft year where we win the lotto, but there's no consensus #1 pick that stands out amongst his peers.

Anywho - the kid above is ranked within the top 10 for the 2021 draft.

Yeah - I noticed that too...Not sure if that's a good thing, or bad at a higher level such as the NHL, but if the kid is used to playing with it, and has success - then why not.

This is definitely interesting. I'm curious if there's any source for identifying which NHLers use longer sticks.

the taller ones normally do.  chara and myers need them to reach the ice!  Franzen comes to mind for Wings with a longer stick.  Mantha too.  both bigger guys without a puck handling need.  not gonba find too many centers with a longer stick.

Lafreniere = 4 pts in 19 games
Stutzle = 12 pts in 20 games

I thought Lafreniere was supposed to be good

 

No doubt! When I saw the graphic a couple games ago that FSD put up with rookie points, I saw Stuetzle with those points, and Laf wasn't even there. I have a feeling that Stuetzle will win the Calder. Might not, but it's not like Laf is going to with numbers like that. Strange happenings...

Stutzle was also more developed to play at the NHL level having played in a men's league already. Lafreniere is still making the shift from juniors to the pros. He'll take longer, but he'll get there. He is still the better prospect.
