Here's a little insight from Renney

Quote:
Tom Pyatt: "Tommy's frame is only going to allow him to get so strong," Renney said. "He's strong now. What he needs to do is assert himself. His physique is not much different that Nigel Dawes, and he's always in tremendous shape, so that's no the issue. He's had a couple of opportunities like this -- now he can start to assert himself in those areas of the game he's completely good at and those he has to continue to work on to see in his own mind if he can pull it off. It's as much psychology in recognizing that he can do these things against men. What Tom can do now is really push the envelope, be a proactive player, and I think that's in him. If there's a need for some mental training, we'll definitely look into that for him. But Tommy's a very good hockey player, he's a thorough thinker -- what Tom needs to do now is come back in the fall to make this hockey team. It's not about the experience of what it takes to get here anymore -- it's about getting a job."

Its up to him. He's gonna get a look, no doubt.

I thought last season was disappointing. I expect Hartford the whole season--another trip to Charlotte would truly make we wonder if he has what it takes.

Depending on what we do in these upcomming FA days, I suspect that he'll start the year in Hartford. Whether we need to call him up for depth at a 3rd line position, we'll only have to wait and see.

I chalk up last year to adjusting to the pro game. We'll know more this year. Not willing to write off a 21 year old player after his first season playing professionally.

Ok but where does this kid project? I mean he had a really solid season before turning pro. 2nd line center if he max out? Could we hope for a Primeau kind of game from him? He's huge..........I admit I never seen him play but I like his size and #s from jr's.

I mean the kids got skill, i think he cold become a solid 2nd liner if he puts it all together.

I think if he was legit 1st line potential he would go lot higher in our prospect rankings.

If he fully develops...John Madden lite...probably tops out at 3rd line center.

on this team he will max out as a 4th line center.....

dubinsky, anisimov, grachev, stepan, gomez, drury, betts.......

i think he will be an above average 4th liner and a below average 3rd liner if he makes it as he is a good pker and can score some goals but is very good defensively

A lot less grit. Tom works hard, is defensively responsible and has some skill, but he isn't a feisty "hit everything that moves" type. You're talking about a guy with 18 penalty minutes in 58 games in the OHL, 6 penalty minutes in 41 games in the AHL last year.

Because he got passed by the likes of Dubinsky, and players like Anisimov came over.

From the 25 or so times I've seen him, he looks like a second line center if everything plays out perfectly for him. It's reasonable to expect him to develop into a solid 3rd line center.

a little OT, but every time I see Pyatts name I think of Dupont. Anyone know about this guy? Like viper said, we have decent depth at C now, can one of these guys move to wing?

He played LW at Hartford. According to squishy, he played very well when placed on a line with Anisimov and Parenteau. He's ahead of Pyatt right now in terms of development. I'd like to see 20+ goals at Hartford this year. He's most likely a 3rd line LW, but, he does have the ability to be a mucker for a line with talented players.

I liked what I saw from him last year. I could never understand why they gave Bruce Graham more looks at center in Hartford than Pyatt. He should be in Hartford the whole season this year.

Dupont has size and plays a physical game--he will drop the gloves--if I remember right he beat Louis Robitaille a noted AHL goon--then again his injury towards the end of the season came in another fight--Brodie winding up with some facial fractures again if I remember right--he can play either wing or center. As far as I'm concerned Dupont is way ahead of Pyatt--maybe even one or two who we're voting for now.
