#12 Montreal Canadiens prospects tiebreaker

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=802902

Since both Bennett and Palushaj have 45 votes so decide who's the #12 Montreal Canadiens prospects. Just wanna help Didouche so we can go to #13.

Palushaj because of his playmaking ability and his good run in the playoffs.

Bennett has some raw ability, but at this point, I would have him behind guys like Quailer that have shown skill at the NCAA level or Dumont who had flashes in the NHL.

Bennett for me. I think he could end up being a little more than MAB.

Obviously what you've proved has nothing to do with the results of this prospect ranking.

I mean Trunev played in the KHL and Engqvist in the SEL.

I vote Bennett cause he got more TV-time than Polushaj


To be fair, I never saw any of the two play. So it really come down to this. ( also TV-time = Youtube time too )

That doesn't mean certain people don't grade it more significantly than others.

I voted Palushaj, but I will be voting for Bennett next round.

Palushaj was an All Star in the USHL, put up impressive numbers in the NCAA (but so did Pacioretty, who was named CCHA All Rookie team over Palushaj) but the blues weren't happy with his development in the AHL. Once he came over to Hamilton he played well, works hard, has some jam to his game, I've heard he's got some good moves in the SO but I don't think he scored on any with the Dogs (i'd have to look that up though) he's a playmaker first and foremost, decent size, and seems good enough in his own end. Not sure what his upside is, but at this point I'd say it's around a solid 3rd liner, two way RW.

Bennett is more raw and still in the very early stages of his development. I've heard he was impressive in the USHS, in the USHL he was on the top pairing, top PK and top PP units. Was named to the All Star team for the World Junior A Challenge and the USHL All Stars as well as the USHL All Rookie Team. He was tabbed as an offensive D at the draft as he likes to rush the puck up ice but he's made big strides in his defensive game as evidenced by his making the All Star team at the World Junior A's. Doesn't have the biggest frame, but he should hopefully fill out a bit more as he's still young. Moves well for sure, but what I find most impressive about him is his poise with the puck in his own end, plays with no fear, no panick. But we'll see how he adjusts to the next level in the fall.

Voted Palushaj because I know him a bit more and I know more what he is capable of. Here's a nice feature on Mac Bennett before he was drafted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1gcXtsbH7E

Seems like Palushaj will win.

I dont agree but I cant do nothing. I think Carle and Bennett deserve to be in front of him.

It's all done for fun anyway. With Palushaj he's already excelled in the NCAA whereas Bennett is more of an unknown so some will want to wait and see what he can do. Plus he continues on with the trend of Michigan players in our system. Craig Murray ('98 draft), Komisarek, Pacioretty, Palushaj, Pateryn and now Bennett.
