Zaborsky for the 100th time

I still LOL everytime I see Stepan rated so much higher than where Zaborsky is gonna be. Sometimes these polls end up pretty silly.

I know Wiikman is a bit undersized but he has done really well the past few years in Finland and now over here.

Dupont. Zaborsky has a lot to prove yet and we have enough small forwards. Add Skokan.

Yeah cause Dupont has nothing to prove yet after that stellar freshman season in the AHL.

Dupont projects to a 3rd liner if he develops.

Zaborsky 2nd liner if he develops.

Zaborsky>Dupont


Oh wait Dupont is big so he's better.

I agree that Dupont did not have a great year. What he did do as a 20 year old is play a full season in the AHL--what he has that Zaborsky lacks is size and strength--one of the things he does that Zaborsky doesn't is play a physical game--not to mention that he's willing to drop the gloves and will stick up for other teammates. His upside is a 3rd liner. There's no guarantee that he'll reach it.

So what makes him a worthier prospect in my eyes than Zaborsky? For one I think that Zaborsky's chances of being a 2nd line NHL player are more remote that Dupont making the NHL even if his upside to you seems to be lower than Zaborsky's. I'm not as impressed as some others by an overaged on the smaller side forward doing a point a game in juniors. Dupont's last junior season not as an overager was about a point a game also or to put it another he put up relatively the same numbers as a 19 year old that Zaborsky put up as a 20 year old. So let's compare Zaborsky to a player more his size like Nigel Dawes who looks to be a legit 2nd liner. Dawes though put up big numbers for at least 3 junior seasons and 2 AHL seasons. Zaborsky doesn't seem to be in the same class at least not yet.

I would like to see Tomas do well this year but I am skeptical. He doesn't have Dawes' pedigree of dominance over several seasons transitioning from juniors to pro nor does he seem to have the fire and grit of a Callahan. I guess we'll see. I hope you're right but if I were to bet on either of them making it--it would be Dupont.

Not to get me wrong--I like teams that can skate and players that can play--but I'd like to see the Rangers as a gritty, physical and not very pleasant team to play against--which doesn't mean I want to see them playing stupid like we've seen from the likes of Purinton or Hollweg occasionally. Dubinsky's and Staal's are my kind of players. Brodie's game if it comes around might fit in very well with that.
