I'm not worried about Brent at all, he has plenty experience dealing with these types on the Rebels and had success in the World Juniors. If anything, I think he will know how to get the most out of these guys. He will teach them how to play like men.

Nice... I like actually having the bulk of drafted prospects being skilled, fast and all that jazz. Upcoming training camps should get more and more itneresting.

Because drafting size has worked so well in the past for the Flames....

Your 13 year old brother is fat and should exercise more.

Size and talent means a top 10 pick.

In the later rounds, you go with one or the other. And we have enough size. We NEEDED to go talent this draft.

Not in the slightest, actually. Thanks for your concern though, Internet M.D.

Completely agree with your second post however, after not looking in this thread after the first page it really is ridiculous how many complaints about Gaudreau's size there are.

I bet you he makes it , he's an unbelievable player !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And people wonder why we gave up on St. Louis...

You also should remember males don't stop growing until their early 20s

Gaudreau will take much longer than the others, I doubt we see him play full time until he is about 20.
