Erne is the real deal. Watched bits and pieces of Remparts games and he reminds me a lot of Zach Parise. His skating is very low, powerful and up tempo. He forechecks extremely hard and intelligently. Most of his goals are the result of being in the right place at the right time. But its not because of luck. Its because his hockey sense and skating allow him to get to those open spaces. Very similar to Parise and he should go in the top 10.
How would you describe Adam Erne's game, is he like the typical American power forward like (Guerin, Weight, Tkachuk, etc...) or does he bring something else on the ice?
Gritty and skilled. Not skilled like Pavel Datsyuk dangling through 5 players and then skating back to the blue line and doing it again just for fun, but skilled as in solid fundamentals. Puck control, shot, etc all strong and combined with a willingness to get dirty makes him dangerous.
Saw the game this afternoon... holy molly... Erne is just sick. He does everything well, he's a leader on the ice. He skates hard, he's involved, he goes to the corners, he goes to the nets. His hands are so fast man when he gets going he has amazing acceleration and just dangles the puck so fricking quickly! He's a beauty.
