kopitar

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.

with fuku and huet, i don't think kings scouts are afraid of location at all. so far it's served them well, hopefully kopitar too.

The Kings are getting a reputation for getting high rated prospects who fall on draft day.

2003 Dustin Brown with 13th pick. I think he was rated top 8.
2004 Lauri Tukonen with 11th pick. Rated top 5.
2005 Anze Kopitar with 11th pick. Rated top 5.

Lets hope DT knows more than the other GM's.
