I think we're going to be pleasantly surprised with some of the guys with less exposure. I've had a couple viewings of MacWilliam and Knodel in action, and MacWilliam is definitely farther along, but the ceiling for Knodel is much higher, as a BIG two-way D-man. Knodel will benefit greatly from some face time with Barbara Underhill. When he smooths out the skating, he's going to be a really solid player.
MacWilliam and Knodel will both be 23 this year.
Hopefully going full term in College is going to be the answer for these guys.
Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
Babs - short for Barbara
