Martin Sagat shining bright!

He's been tearing it up since his return from that shoulder injury.

Sagat had 1 goal and 2 assists against Saskatoon tonight.

I'm really loving that trade to move down in the draft.

Excellent news. He's got the frame and skill to be a solid addition. I haven't really read a lot of information on him, though. From the sounds of it he has the potential to be a solid second-line power forward.

He's only 19, though. Still plenty of time to see what he can do. Looks like it may be a while before we see him in a Leaf jersey, though.

His skating's very good, especially his balance.

I've seen him on Leafs TV once and physically he looks a lot like Martin Havlat.

i wouldn't really compare him to havlat (who's 6-1 and a speed demon, and has massive offensive potential)...

i saw sagat three times at the kitchener camp, and came away impressed with him... he's pushing 6-4 in height, and skates pretty well for a guy that size.. he has good balance on his skates, but i'd hardly call him a speedster.. he still has a lot of room to improve in the skating department...his real strengths are his hockey sense and hustle imo.... he plays a strong two-way game..

He's very lanky right now.

Sagat looked to me a lot like Martin Havlat physically, I didn't see him skate much... so aside from the little bits I've picked up from scouting reports and what his coach's been saying, I know as much as anyone else.

During the Kitchener camp, they showed a clip of Sagat on Leafs TV and he's very tall, but he's also very thin. He's a couple inches taller then Martin, but the lankyness definately resembles Havlat.

Another comparison would be Nikolai Antropov of '99.

I have to agree here big time Doug... I live out west here so get to see Sagat play Live..

There is no simialrity between Havlat and Sagat.. In fact Martin Sagat might be closer to BOB SAGAT who used to host America's funniest home Videos than Havlat..

I have been impressed as well but Sagat is a BIG POWER FORWARD type of player and that is kind of the role I see him if he makes the NHL..

I think he is a lot closer to Brad Isbister than Havlat.. IMO..

To be fair could you not say that "Lankyness" could be a word to describe 80 % of the kids drafted over 6 feet, and how often have you heard the saying when he fills out into his frame..????

Nikolai Antropov .. Yes size wise maybe..but style and vision as of today is no where close.. speed wise Sagat is closer to Ant than Havlat thats for sure.. but Antropov as a comparison is better .. Sagat has even missed games this year because of a Shoulder injury just like Nik...

I didn't compare him to Martin Havlat.

I said from what I saw, "physically" he looked a lot like Havlat.

Check this out..
Martin Sagat

Martin Sagit

Marty Havlet

Marty HAVLAT

Bio
Stats

Hey there almost TWINS..and I mean like Arnold Schwatzenager and Danny Devito in the movie Twins..

Sagat is 6'4" while Havlat is 6'1" and that alone would make them physically different since they both weigh about 190 +..

Sagat shoots Right and plays Left Wing... Havlat shots Left and is a Right Wing..

Sagat is from Slovakia...Havlat from the Czech REP.

Sagat is slower awkward skating Power Forward type ... Havlat is a speedy gifted goal scorer type..

Sagat uses his size and strengh to protect the puck ...Havalt uses his offensive flair when he has the puck..

The only thing these guys have in common is their first names IMO..

In fact they are mirror images of each other and are nothing a like what so ever..

and remember I get to watch Sagat play live out here in the west..


If you want a good comparison for Sagat its Leafs own Ponikarovsky..

Poni boy

Size, Style, Weight. Position, Skating, and even his looks for that matter and possible his potential too.. Sagat is supossed to be a more gifted scorer than Poni, but at the AHL Level Poni produced multilple 20 + goal seasons..and in the games I have seen Sagat play he will not be confused with Mogilny for his scoring ability, and they are typical Poni goals, banging in loose rebounds lying in the crease in a scrum..

even draft position is similar.

Alexei Ponikarovsky was Drafted 87th overall in the 1998 Entry Draft
Martin Sagat was Drafted in round 3 #91 overall 2003 NHL Entry Draft

sagat recorded two more assists yesterday on goals by Nigel Dawes in a 6-4 loss to Moose Jaw. Sagat has now moved into a tie for fith spot in WHL rookie scoring, with 20 points in 20 games. Sagat has missed five games this year (mostly due to a shoulder injury), and got off to a bit of a slow start in the scoring department, so it's likely that he will catch the leader Gilbert Brule (vancouver) who has 23 points in 24 games shortly (especially if he stays on a line with Dawes, who has been filling the net at a sizzling pace this year). Yannic Seidenberg in Medicine Hat is the only other point per game rookie in the WHL.

Jeremy Williams also had a good night yesterday with 2 goals and an assist for SC..

He now has 25 point in 19 games 1 point behind the red hot Dawes as you say...
