I have never watched any Etem highlights but is that the general consensus here? That's he overhyped?
I will agree with other posters in this thread that Brodin should definitely be ranked a lot higher.
That was me who asked the question. And I still stick by my opinion that Etem is and will be a much better player than Coyle. Etem really resembles Malkin to me in the powerful way he skates and controls the game.
O and here are some highlights
By the way he scored 61 goals in 65 games for Medicine Hat in the WHL last year. No big deal.
On Brodin ranking: He just doesn't have the flashy upside that this pole seems to prefer.
