No I mean playing style.

I'm not shocked to see him go before Catennacci. Cousins has a lot of goal scoring potential at the pro level I think.

Pump up song? How pumped up is he going to get? In all seriousness, I don't like him because he's a center, but that better be a joke.

I could let that slide. But he's also a Leafs fan.

A brief description of his play:

Nick Cousins - Centre - Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds
Cousins has quickly worked his way up from project to prospect with his hard working and fearless style of play. He is dependable in all situations and has good vision of the ice. Cousins has a good mix of offensive skills - he is a quality playmaker that uses his linemates well but has also show the ability to finish off chances himself.

Hockey players generally have a ****** taste when it comes to music (at least most of my former teammates... ****ers wouldn't let me have control over the stereo in the locker room.... grumble, grumble, grumble...), but Katy Perry is a bit left field.

Hope he'll turn out good in the end (and that he can convert to wing).

Is it fair to say that he projects as a winger at the NHL level?

Honestly the Jersey Shore and Katy Perry stuff bothers me less than his favorite movie being Never Back Down. When I first saw someone post those 3 I thought there was no way he wasn't from Long Island or Tom's River, NJ or something.

If he's the player I'm thinking of, he's a good player with a side of dirty. Definite pest, but with skill.

Maybe not to you but it does to me. When you lead your team in goals and are third worst in plus/minus it tells me exactly where your focus is. I don't like centers who are a defensive liability but thats just me. The good news to me is his age. I didn't like our trend of drafting overage guys. We have plenty of time to get him to focus on D.

Sounds like a Briere type. No, I'm not saying he will ever be as good so chill out. Hes like Briere in the fact that hes a smaller Center that goes into the tough areas to score goals, gets his hands dirty, gets under guys skin and has both playmaking and scoring abilities but lacks on the defensive end.

I didn't see him often this year, but from memory that's not a bad comparison. Although I don't think he's as much of an ******* as Marchand (no bias there whatsoever! )

Regarding people saying they dislike him for his film and music tastes. I could be wrong, it's possible....but i think they were joking.

Here's a video interview...

http://quintelive.ca/2011/06/25/cous...l-entry-draft/

Quote:
Cousins, a sophomore with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, was a third round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers while Shaw, a 19-year-old, was a fifth rounder to the Chicago Blackhawks.

“It’s a dream come true,” said Cousins, who was the Greyhounds’ second round pick in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection. “I was just sitting there in my seat waiting for my name to get called and once it did I was just ecstatic. My body was shaking and I just can’t wait to get started.”

My steals of the #NHLDraft: Nathan Beaulieu 17 (MTL) - Markus Granlund 45 (CGY) - Nick Cousins 68 (PHI) - Daniel Catenacci 77 (BUF)
-Todd Cordell (NJ beatwriter for sportshaze)

Also talked to some of the other beatwriters/prospect guys. A lot of people think Cousins had 2nd round potential. Look forward to seeing how he progresses.

The Flyers took Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds center Nick Cousins with their next choice. Although on the smallish side (5′ 10″, 169-pounds), Cousins is a high-energy player. This past season the 71st-ranked North American skater (by the Central Scouting Bureau) scored 29 goals, nearly tripled his 2009-10 total of 11, and more than doubled the amount of points he totaled in the previous campaign – 68 in 2010-11 after 32 last year – all while getting under the skin of his opponents.

The native of Belleville, Ontario doesn’t turn 18 until late next month, and will likely be getting more time to develop in the OHL.
