Really liked the Mantha and Janmark-Nylen selections.
What is your knock on Pope? I thought that he was one of our better picks to be honest.

He might be ok, but seems like just another Phillipe Hudon.

We actually still have his rights, but I still think he would have gotten signed if he stuck out the college route. Especially seeing their aims last night in the draft, a guy like Hudon would have fit.

So, neither? I don't think he's as wicked in the slot as a guy like Hull, but he's in good scoring positions when the puck hits his stick; unlike Cleary.

Trying to think of a good modern comparison and drawing blank; Danny Heatley before the injuries? Like just from a playstyle perspective anyways. You should watch the goal compilation to get your own idea; it's in French but you can always mute the super loud announcers.

There's also this, but it looks like many of the highlights are from the same game:

I see a little bit of Tony Amonte there; although once again it's a playstyle thing not a body type thing obviously.
worst thing about him so far is that he does that stupid kneeling arm-dragging goal celebration.

Don't know what his plans are, only that because he actually enrolled we still own his rights. Doesn't look like they are going to sign him at any point. I would assume he would do an overage season then go the CIS route. He is a confusing case because he actually enrolled Cornell and attended classes so we had four years from that date to sign him. Leaving for the CHL didn't change that.

Mantha is an interesting player, sounds like a great pick at #20, and mini Bert should have been picked later and I'm not educated enough in the others to comment on them.

Disagree. We need more obnoxious cellys. I want these people going ape-****. Make old Canadians angry. Good stuff.

I'm all for enjoying your goals, but the kid just looks like a toolbox with that celebration.

needs improvement.
