Who could we expect more offense from? I have a hell of a time comparing those from Finnish/DEL/Russian leagues to North American. BTW, it appears Zidlicky is making the Nashville team...(or perhaps I am wrong there)

Zdilicky could have a Rafalski type career, first season.

I would say Leopold though because he's getting #1 PP time and is now a proven player despite the fact Zdilicky could out score him but also there's more potential for failure.

to be honest, i don't know enough about leopold to compare...but i really, REALLY like what zidlicky brings to the table. the guy will get top four icetime this year, and has a shot that rivals delmores(AND he can actually play defense...UNlike handy-andy! :joker: )

Leopold looks very comfortable on the PP from what ive seen and posted a very impressive +/- in the preason +5 of something like that. I don't know anything about Zidlicky.

Leopold

I watched him in an exhibition game against Vncouver and he was amazing with the puck, he had 2 assists that night without Iginla, McAmmond, Conroy, Kobasew, Reinprecht --->basically Calgary's offense.

Players who impressed me that game:
Cgy: Mathew Lombardi, Oleg Saprykin, Jordan Leopold
Van: Mike Keane, Sedin twins (when playing with Bertuzzi) Todd Bertuzzi

bold = best player on the team that night

Well long term I'd definitely take Jordan, he looks to have all star potential IMO. Short term it's hard to say. Leopold will definitely play top 4 and looks quite likely to start the season on the top pairing with Regehr. IMO he and Ference should be QBing the PP in Calgary this season. I'd expect a breakout year but not sure how many points he'll end up with.

There's a new "Z-man" in town...

He's NOT from Sweden, and he's NOT on the RED WINGS !!!

His name's Zidlicky...Marek Zidlicky...(he was 5th overall leading scorer in the Finnish League, 0.87 ppg last year) ...and he now plays with Nashville !

He's a REAL Predator !!!

Dark horse for the Calder ! ;)
