It's clear they're finally taking the approach that it's easier to convert a center to wing than vice versa. SundherCat have the speed to zip up and down the wing if they can't hack it at center. Kea could bang on the lower lines at wing if he can't hack it as an NHL center. About time they figured this out.
Darcy attacking size again with the selection of Kea. Kid has the skills to make it, but has to put it all together. Honestly I dont see him making it in a scoring role, but I have hopes that he can embrace the Physical game and do well in a Paul Gaustad sort of role.
And Hudon hasnt been selected that I have seen, or one of my 5th round hopefulls Andrea Anastatiou (SP?)
Wasn't Anastasiou (sp) considered to be a potential 1st rounder earlier this year?
The Terrier fan in me wants them to grab Baillargeon or Lane as well.
I'd pencil in Catenacci ahead of Kea...maybe Sundher as well.
i think the idea is that Kea better fits that 4th line role rather than him being higher on the depth chart than Cat or Sundher. With the glut of centers now in the system, will eventually need to be movement by some to other teams or to the wings.
Are you the one talking about how the CBA is going to make 5'8" players relevant? This team needs size: skilled size, grinding size, physical size. Size, size, size. Recent cup winners like Boston and LA have had huge teams, though never slow teams.
