So then nothing we can believe is true?
Mantha probably blows? But only if we trade him right?
When Hakan Andersson says after this years draft that “hopefully we were able to get a centre to play with Mantha” I file that under:
- things I believe to not be bulls*** hype
- things said by a super-scout about a prospect, with a level of reverence never used on Jarnkrok.
When I read Fischer’s quotes on Jarnkrok I think of the passionate way in which he spoke of Sproul in this video (starting at the 50 second mark). When he says “Sproul can shoot the puck better, harder, under pressure, than 90% of the players in the NHL” (2:45) I want to believe him, but part of me knows that there’s probably some over-zealousness in play. I imagine him looking and sounding the same way when talking about Jarnkrok:
But whatevs. Maybe I’m over-analysing. I just find it hard to accept that Holland would knowingly trade “the next Zetterberg” for David Legwand but then say that Tatar, Jurco, Nyquist, and Sheahan are basically untouchable.
