As to the bolded: If TT were born a couple weeks later, he'd be heading into the 2013 draft with a PpG or near-PpG season in the SM-Liiga and a good performance as one of the youngest players on team Finland at the WJC under his belt. He was considered a top-10 pick by every scouting service for last years draft with far less accolades. He was ranked more on talent last year, now he's put some very good numbers behind that talent.
I'd like to hear a real arguement from you as to why the players ranked in the 15-30 range in 2013 are better than TT. Maybe some scouting reports. Maybe something other than "The 2013 draft is deep, scouts say" or "You're a fanboy".
They are both playmakers, have a ton of skill and can shoot the puck. Although, Lazar actually likes the rough stuff, unlike TT.
“He’s the total package,” Dirk said. “His skill set is exceptional, his skating is exceptional and his hockey sense and his discipline for the game is very, very good. What separates him is there are a lot of high-end players that have those qualities, but he has a mean streak. That’s why he’s the total package.”
You keep bringing up, IF TT WAS BORN A COUPLE WEEKS EARLIER...well guess what...he wasn't!!!!!!!!!!!!
His performance at the WJC is so overrated. Ya, a couple of fans said they liked him, but he tallied the majority of his points against very weak teams. He get's knocked off of the puck fairly easily, and doesn't really go to the high traffic areas. Sounds like a guy that will fit right in with the Hawks though.
It doesn't even matter what I post about the prospects this year, you will jsut come back and say "TT is better and has more talent" because that's just what you do. I have read lots of scouting reports and blogs about the 2013 draft that tell me all I need to know about the draft. It's filled with 1st and 2nd line top talent from 1-40.
