Patrick Sieloff Article

Stumbled across this Sieloff article while web browsing...

Look for highlights from Sieloff and you won’t find many cannon shots or end-to-end rushes. You will, however, see carnage – whether it’s fearless shot-blocking or blowing up an opponent with a huge open-ice check. No surprise the Michigan native tabbed Red Wings blueliner Niklas Kronwall as an inspiration.

“I love the way he can change the momentum of a game with a hit,” Sieloff said.

I couldn't stand the first pick we made this draft. I thought it was definitely the wrong one, but, it was only because of that, that we were able to nab this kid.

He might turn out being a real stud.

This guy could end up being a very good defenceman for us. Shutdown D-man who can hit hard, but at only 6 foot who knows if his big hitting game will translate to the NHL, especially when he tries to take a run at a 6'4 guy.

What's a good NHL comparable for Sieloff?

Josh Gorges?

That might be good one.

From everything I've seen and read however, Sieloff seems to have much more mobility than Sarich.

If he developed into a more mobile version of Sarich that would be a pretty good deal IMO.

More mobile yet smaller version of Sarich. #4 dman who can hit very hard.

Josh Gorges or a less offensive version of Kronwall would probably be better comparisons, not the biggest guys around, but putting the head down means that there will be a problem. Has a mean streak like Cory Sarich though.

Also, how are you already slotting him in a #4? God knows how this kid will develop? That kid everyone was gushing about this summer in Schultz went in the second round a few years ago, he has more offensive upside, but you never know how this kid could spark... could end up being a top pair shut downer, or could turn out to never see the NHL.

Josh Gorges sounds like a good comparison. If he becomes a legitimate #4, we've found a hell of a gem.
#6 realistically but one of those heart and soul players that we'd keep for life.

A lot of guys don't even belong in the NHL because of their trajectory. Give him a couple years and make the call, guys has been a one pairing so far in his young career. Let him develop.

Lol. Where did I say that was all he could be? I just stated his trajectory. Chill out.

Do you know what a projection is?

It's based off where he COULD be slotted if his development goes correctly. Not whatever you think it means.

The comment wasn't he might be. The comment was he was a forth dman and that he should be penciled there. I was simply saying we don't know how this kid is going to develop.

Scrubs gonna be scrubs, have to love the second guy in who thinks that they'll be the guy that makes everything clear, but instead ends up just being a tool.

InfinityIggy said that 4D was his trajectory...

Trajectory=Projection. Or did you not take Physics 20 in highschool?

Nothing was ever stated as a certainty. You're the only one being a tool right now.

I tried to find a smilie that showed a train falling off it's tracks to express what I think about where this thread has gone, but this was best I could find to express my feelings here:
