He has some quick hands around the net, but that is about all the talent he has. Pound for pound, the toughest player I have ever seen. He crashes the net constantly, gets facewashed, gets cross-checked, and gets right back up. That man has no quit in him. Scores goals, but does't have a great shot. Get's lots of tips and rebounds. Consumate "Barry Trotz guy". Plays just like David Clarkson IMO.

One of the fastest skaters in nhl with average hands, average hockey sense and a decent shot. Not so good defensively. Mostly played in the Hawks top 6 as a third wheel due to lack of better options. Hit 40 points last year without any PP time.


A very polarizing figure on the Hawks board

Strengths: Excellent offensive acumen. Very smart in the offensive zone, a natural power-play quarterback. Is able to skate laterally very effectively and can change directions very fast. Very accurate wrist shot, and a quick release. He is fairly effective in his own end. Very strong leadership qualities.

Weaknesses: Despite great overall skating, top linear speed isn't particularly impressive. He is very small, and although he compensates for that with comparatively high upper body strength and strong positioning, he still can get muscled around. Comes with the territory of being a rookie, but he looked lost at times and was nowhere near the same player he was in Windsor in Nashville.

Strengths: Tireless work ethic. Chases the puck relentlessly, not afraid to get into the gritty areas. Very hard, accurate release. Physical for his size. Not a tremendous playmaker, but he knows how and when to defer to his linemates.

Weaknesses: He is very small and not extremely strong for his size. His skating is mediocre and is nowhere near where it should be to compensate for his size. Has a tendency to let his exuberance get the better of him and lead to penalties or defensive lapses.

Strengths: He knows how to use his size to his advantage. Looked like a man among boys in the OHL last year. He's not extremely physical, but he knows how to hold off defenders using his strength and weight (sort of like Rick Nash or Eric Staal). Good top flight speed. Has a very hard snapshot, and is an above average facilitator. Not going to win the Selke but is by no means defensively inept

Weaknesses: Major concerns about consistency. His acceleration is poor for a player of his ability. His wrist shot is not of the same calibre as other players putting up his kind of numbers.

Brandon Sutter. I've seen how great he is defensively, but how do you guys evaluate his offensive upside?

Gimme some Logan Couture. I know he's a good goal scorer but I know little about his skating, one on one moves, defensive game, etc.

Hard worker, good in the face-off circle, always keeps his feet moving. Not the most talented player but keeps his game simple, which usually leads to offensive success. A better passer than a shooter.

The biggest knock on him is that he runs hot and cold offensively, but he always makes an impact in the game. He's similar to Michael Peca.
