Quote:

Cousins has quickly worked his way up from project to prospect with his hard working and fearless style of play. He is dependable in all situations and has good vision of the ice. Cousins has a good mix of offensive skills - he is a quality playmaker that uses his linemates well but has also show the ability to finish off chances himself.

Sigh. I know you've gotta go BPA but I really want some D.

JVR21 06-25-2011 11:59 AM

:whatever:That was a let down. He wasn't close to being a BPA and he's another center.

sa cyred 06-25-2011 12:00 PM

68 points as a 17 yr old. Hasnt turned 18 yet either, on the younger side of the draft.

I should clarify...I wasn't saying he was BPA (because I have know idea who BPA was), but rather that they must have felt he was.

Are we sure he's not Best Player Available?

Somebody once said (MSE will tell us I'm sure) -- "The best defense is a good offense"

Nick Cousins-- fast kid, willing to pay the price to score some goals. Good hockey sense. Had him as a "Sleeper" in this draft.

Well, that won't be a GDT song I can assure all.

1. How would you say your past season progressed, from start to finish?

"We had an up-and-down year. We had a really young team in the Soo with not so much experience so I think that caught up with us.

"I gained confidence as the season progressed. I really turned it on and I think that carried over to the under-18s."

2. In your mind, what would scouts say is the biggest thing you have to work on between now and when you'll be on the cusp of turning pro?

"Playing both ends of the ice. I put up pretty good numbers [68 points in 68 games for a ninth-place club], but you have to play good defence if you want to play at the next level. So I need to improve on my play in my own and my play without the puck."

3. You mentioned it was an up-and-down year in the Soo, with one coaching change and another on the way. As a player, what kind of lesson did you take from that?

"You have to learn how to battle through that adversity and throw it in back of your mind. We're confident [rookie general manager] Kyle Dubas will find the right person for us and now it's up to us an an organization to make that next step, make the playoffs next season, become a good hockey team in the OHL."

4. Outside of family, who has had the most impact on you in hockey?

"Probably my [Quinte Red Devils] minor midget coaches, Brandon Harker and Mike McEwen. They just showed me what it takes to get the OHL and guided me along the way, showed you have to be at your best at every night because there is always someone watching. The main thing I got from them was about always doing something every day to become a better hockey player."

5. Hockey players are known for superstitions. What is something you have to do or else you won't feel ready to play?

"I guess that's the back rub before every game. Lay on the table and get the trainer to give me a back rub. Other than that, I tape my stick the same way before every game and I always put my left skate on first."

I have to assume he did that as a joke. He probably lost a bet to a teammate. That can't be real.

I came here to post that too. Add in his -14 and I don't like him already.

Mr Lahey* 06-25-2011 12:06 PM

Guys....just wait until next year.

You guys have drafted the two best value picks so far in the draft. Sean and Nick.

Nick will be a 2nd-2rd line winger, I compare him to Milan Michalek.

Bob Clarke Fan Club 06-25-2011 12:06 PM

I've never seen the kid and I hate him already. Why the **** are we taking a center? Thank god our first rounder was a no-brainer.

In that case he should've gone with Twilight.

Flyersfan1216 06-25-2011 12:10 PM

I'm seriously laughing at some of you. You don't like a 17 year old kid because he likes the jersey shore and Katy Perry... :laugh:

SeanL44 06-25-2011 12:11 PM

Hearing hes a pest with some offensive upside, needs to work on defense.
