I cant imagine Iginla still being around at that point with his UFA status approaching.

I agree hes a good talent but Kane, Briere, Kariya are all bigger then him.

Id assume hed stay another year at Boston then another 1-1.5 years in the AHL (Cam Atkinson, Conarcher, Tyler Johston all have). So by the time hes in the league Iginla will be either gone or not the 30g he was formerly

He will be there for 2 more years and most likely a year in the ahl so by the time he makes the nhl Iginla will be 38 and either on another team or a second/third line player here.

Great steal for the Flames in the 4th round. If he got drafted the year after his freshman year at BC, first round talent in my mind, people just think because he is small he wont do it but look at Briere, or St Louis.
wut?

Depending on what a few player did this weekend JG has could have the best ppg in the NCAA (1.48) and is atleast a year younger than ever other player as much as 3 years younger. He has a very good shot at it.

Gaudreau has been awesome, especially down the stretch.

Anyone else super impressed with his teammate and Panther's prospect Mike Matheson? He's been great this season.

different players IMO. Gerbe is smaller, faster and feistier. Gaudreaus game is all about hockey sense, lateral movement (shiftiness), and his hands.

I expected the latest news update to be that Gaudreau has finally hit puberty...

Not a snowballs chance in hell imo, Kreider was 6'3 210 pounds and was a year older, JG is 5'10(at best) and 150 pounds(at best). He is tiny and would most likely get hurt.

Everyone that says he is the next Gerbe have either:

a) Never seen Gaudreau play
b) Never seen Gerbe play

They don't play anywhere near the same style. Gerbe plays a big man's game with a small body. The only thing they have comparable is their size.

It's extremely frustrating. Here I got one. Chris Breen plays a very similar style game like Chara..... Both are really tall!

Love how he finishes the season off with 6points and another highlight real goal!

As a panther fan i was wary when Tallon picked up Matheson, but as of late i have been hearing great news from his play. Glad we picked him up, I thought we would've taken Schmaltz before him.

Points per game is the only thing going for him and its not like he is blowing everybody out of the water. Age isn't a factor in the hobey.
