Clarke at the WJC

Bob was at the WJC and got a chance to see Richards and Carter play. As per the article on canoe.ca, Clarke said Richards reminded him of Doug Gilmour in the way he plays the game.

You know something, I think Clarke is right about that. All along, some of us have been comparing Richards to Sakic and Yzerman, but he does look an awful lot like a young Gilmour. Gilmour was considered kind of small, not a great skater, but made up for everything in determination and hockey sense.

Who knows, but it's really nice to be in the situation we are in. We have two top notch prospects whose upsides are being compared to Sundin and Gilmour. As for Ruzicka, I'll probably get flamed for this, but he reminds me a lot of a young Brian Propp. Ruzicka is just a goal scoring machine, something our system seriously lacks. Now, hopefully Hitch won't take the offensive game out of kids and he has a plan to utilitze a system that will take advantage of their skills........
