#2530177 What's best for Mantha?

Posted by metalkorn on 05 July 2014 - 09:32 PM

No way should he start in Detroit... he has only played Junior.

Mackinnon is a class above this kid, numbers don't make a player in the Q - he put up good numbers, but I wouldn't say he is ready.

Martin Frk was playing with Mackinnon and was lighting it up for the Moose and then he turned out to be terrible for Grand Rapids and was buried, not sure why anyone expects that Mantha is going to make the team, would be cool to see him play a pre-season game perhaps but even if he scored 3 or 4 goals in a game I still think he owuldn't be with the big club Day 1... it wouldn't be good for him.... we aren't Edmonton.

Why doesn't reebok slap the ccm logos on jerseys in the league? Just like the more traditional look better.

why doesn't coke slap pepsi labels on their products? same diff

It's a little bit sad watching Gordie out there - it's like when they bring Muhammad Ali out for occassions. He's not looking great

Has the game started? I'm having to watch from NBC's stream, and it just says "Coverage will begin shortly"

Not yet, shortly i guess (still suffering through leaf love)




#2450718 Mantha signed to ELC

Posted by metalkorn on 04 November 2013 - 11:26 AM

Mantha currently leads all QMJHL scorers with a whopping 43 points in 17 games. His nearest competition has 31 points in 19 games.


For reference, #1 overall pick Nathan MacKinnon had 75 points in 44 games last season in the Q, and #3 Drouin had 103 points in 50 games. Mantha is on pace for 126 points if he plays 50 games.

 

Disclosure, I'm a Mooseheads fan living in Halifax. That being said I saw this kid play against the moose after hearing the hype a couple of weeks back. To be honest he didn't stand out on the ice unlike someone like Drouin who just tears it up with speed and skill. He is getting points but I'm not sure what sort of a player he is from what I saw, He got a couple of penalties and one assist in that game in a 4-2 loss for Val-D'or. If anything he is helping that really bad team move into a decent playoff position in the early going. (almost every team in the league qualifies for playoffs in the Q btw only 2 teams fail to make playoffs of the 18, so even if you suck you generally play playoffs)

 

Drouin and Mackinnon also played for Team Canada in the Juniors last season, so be interesting to see if Mantha makes that team.

 

He did score 89 points last year though which was impressive and 12 in 9 playoff games.

It's about time for Brunner to score one with 30 seconds left when it's pointless isn't it?
