Mantha was supposed to be soft, a Michael Ryder kind of player at best!
Now that Mantha is tearing up the Q, we need a pure goal scorer and Mantha scores goals in the dirty area!
"Now" that he's tearing up the Q? He tore up the q last year too..this is not a shock that he's producing in his final junior season as a 19-year-old.
Mantha still doesn't score goals in the dirty areas very often. An impressive super series game playing on a line with a junior superstar against teenage Russian defenders is a far cry from the NHL.
Time will tell how well he fares in the NHL. but it's a moot point. He was picked before the Habs selected, so it is irrelevant.
