thats exactly opposite IMO. Hudon is amazing because he is the most complete and competitive player on the ice. He is soooo ahead in terms of technical skills for his age it's crazy. The way he plays his angles, protects the puck, steals the puck, and converts the little size he has into power when he needs it is very Datsyuk/Karlsson like (imo 2 of the best technical players in the league) their stickwork and every movement is so effecient it allows him to apply his top flight hockey sense and everything appears to slow down for him this way and he creates plays. Much more Giroux like than Briere who is much more of a permiter, "rely on his raw hands alot more" types of players, especially (and which is what rly matters) if you compare them at the same points in their careers.

Also, the reason he may seem more like a Briere this year with the flash and dangles is because he is so much better than the competition at this point he can just hold onto the puck and go end to end on these guys.

Dude I like your optimism and everyone's including mine but to compare him to NHL players is just hilarious. Yes he seems like a great prospect but don't forget he is mostly playing against guys that won't make it past the Q league. RELAX. Corey Locke says hi

And wtf is this a DD thread of a Hudon thread?

im not the one who compared him initially hence my quoting of that other guy...and i also stated "at the same stages of their careers". who do u want to compare him too? Michael Chaput? Drouin? lol thats what people do with prospects... compare them to nhlers...

He lift up his game in the third and when he does that, he is head and shoulder over the other guys (including Danault) The problem is that he doesn't do it often enough...

no. Hudon is nothing like Briere that uses his speed and hands to creates things from perimeter.

He is a Marty St-Louis clone with 1/4 of st-louis' speed.

Marty St-Louis doesn't use his speed I gather.

yes he does.

St-Louis is all about speed, good shot & vision and get into traffic.

Hudon has no speed compared to him. He'll need to work like crazy on that if he want to make it to the pro.

I think if he reminds me of anyone in particular it's...Brendan Gallagher.

The game of comparison!

Imho, he remembers me of Ribeiro: good hands, above average hockey sense, but sluggish skating and lack of strenght

Awards:
Hudon's speed and size are the reason he went 122nd instead of in the first round. He has an uphill battle but if he can improve his footspeed and be stronger on the puck, he certainly has the hockey sense to be an NHLer.

Wasn't Gallagher also drafted in the fifth round because he was a bad skater?

Yup. And for both of them the biggest concern keeping them from the NHL right now is speed.

not saying he'll ever be as good as him but I think the better comparison for Hudon is Jordan Eberle. Not one great skill but very smart player, always at the right place at the right time and so on.

Hudon is basically Jordan Eberle with speed, size and consistency issues.

I could go with the Ribeiro comparison, I suppose.

Don't like the Ribs or Gallagher comparisions. I have only seen him play one game so it will likely be some time before I have a good feel for his game but Gallagher is all heart and always seems to keep his feet moving, can't say the same for Hudon based on the one game. Ribs I could see a little more since both can dish the puck and appear to have good vision while lacking strength but Hudon appears to be much quicker then Ribs was at that age.

What worries me about his game is that he puts himself into very vulnerable positions a few times every games, and that is very apparent against junior players. I can't imagine what it would look like against pros. If he keeps playing like this, he is bound to be a very injury prone player.

Not playing. Ankle pain...

daveainsley ‏@daveainsley
L'attaquant des Sags Charles Hudon n'affrontera pas l'Océanic. Après discussions avec le personnel médical, il n'était pas apte à jouer.

daveainsley ‏@daveainsley
Hudon avait quitté l'entraînement des Sags jeudi après-midi après avoir ressenti des douleurs à la cheville.

A lot of poor play for the 2 teams so maybe hudon would have scored some... Asselin was invisible too

But at least the home team won... next time ill try to go see an Halifax game when they come in Rimouski... to see Drouin, MacKinnon and the others.
