His play certainly deserved it though.
I think he'll have a very big year in the OHL. He and Justin Sefton became the top pairing for Sudbury by the end of the year, which should carry onwards this season. I'm hoping he becomes a bigger force on the PP this season (he played with McFadden there) and hope he can develop some more muscle and strength this season/offseason.
I'd say Polasek reminds me more of Bieksa than Corrado ever will. I really don't know who Corrado reminds me of. He's an excellent skater with top acceleration, non-stop motor and never gives up on plays, makes a good first pass and carries the puck well. Needs more strength to move players away in front of the net and along the boards. But the main message here is that we should just keep drafting D-men in the 5th round - they look promising
. Now if Andersson could find his game, that'd be nice.
Here's a video i made in the summer if anyone missed it or is interested.
I for one remember that video and was quite impressed by both.
