I threw it out in the thread as it closed, but I think a big comparable for Mantha in the NHL if he pans out is Jeff Carter, especially the wing version of him. Probably not as good defensively, but Mantha is probably a better passer. Big smooth skating sniper that can change a game even if he has been silent for parts of the game and can be physical but isn't all the time, but if you engage him that way he will push back plenty.

Just so long as Mantha learns to hit the net consistently.

Somewhere between Neal, Vanek, and Carter is a good comparable for Mantha

Did Mantha miss any Q-games during the 2 game subway series thingy? Or is the whole CHL taking a break during these? When is his next game?

He didn't miss games. All three leagues have a break during their 2 games vs the Russians. Val d'Or play today and tomorrow.

no he didn't, team didn't play. no chl wasn't on a break. and he plays today against ouellet's former team.

edit. slowwww...

and yeah, chl isn't on a break but the particular league that is playing (whether ohl, whl or qmjhl) against russians, doesn't have games.

Well in the OHL's case the Super Series takes a break over the weekend for them to play their games. Same general point, guess it depends on which way you want to look at that statement.

I don't see "vanek" in him, but definitely Neal/Carter, maybe even Rick Nash.

I was kind of thinking Nash a little as well. Without as much speed.

nash is more of a one-man-show, a puck hog. nash doesn't rely on he's shot nearly as much.

carter/neal/heatley would be my best comparison on playing style.

Question. Do my eyes deceive me or does the Red Wings Roster website list Trevor Parkes amongst the current forwards with the team? http://redwings.nhl.com/club/roster.htm

If so, why is that? It's because of that odd occurrence that I can't get a certain Sesame Street song out of my head.

Looks like Mantha got an assist last night in a 4-2 loss, played against the top team in the CHL if im not mistaken

From what I saw, and from the
talk surrounding him he reminds me of a young Todd Bertuzzi. Yes, I remember Bertuzzi in junior. A big kid with great hands, who could go to the net virtually uncontested and yet be criticized for not using his size. Young Bertuzzi without the clutch and grab, and free of Milbury....amazing potential.

Not quite as high end as the guys youre all saying but I dont think JVR is a terrible comparison.

Uses his size in the corners and everything but doesnt throw it around a whole lot.

jesse graham seems to be heading to saginaw, paterson's team. defenseman, isles 6th rounder from 12 draft. would be the best scoring dman on the team.

Why do we feel the need to pin a comparison on Mantha? I'm sure he'll be bits and pieces of a lot of guys at the end of the day. Let's just let him develop.

Looks like Mantha will have a tough time staying ahead of Drouin in the scoring race. Actually, I think his chances at the title are pretty much gone without an injury etc. Not that he should be too bummed about it, Drouin is unbelievable in the o-zone.

Mantha has 5 goals in his last 11 games, compared to 16 in his first 11 games.

Halifax and Val D'Or are two totally different teams as well. Harder to score when you're dragging the team with you.

Yeah, although that's pretty natural, you'll have a few weeks when you're hot and everything goes in and then you'll have weeks where you "only" go 1PPG
