am i the only one who doesn't really kno much about this kid? i kno he was said to have #1 center potential, but why are people calling him hit or miss? and it seems that he's gettin a lot of props for playing with NHL like players at a young age, is that the main plus for him? what's his style like anyways?
I haven't seen him play personally but I have been reading alot of scouting reports on him. Redline compares Kopitar to a Dany Heatley type player.
The main reason that he dropped to the Kings is because he is the first hockey player drafted from Slovenia. Since this country is not known for growing hockey talent alot of GM's were sceptical of his ability to translate his game the NHL level. I hope for the Kings sake that he proves them wrong.
