David Pope

Good name. Who is he?

Quote:
“He’s got, in my opinion, an NHL shot and release,” said Red Wings scout Jeff Finley. “He’s got a great shot. Hopefully, he’ll be a scorer. He has the shot to be a scorer and he has the natural offensive instincts to be a scorer. He knows where to go, how to find space, and he’s creative.”

“He plays enough of a two-way game that if he’s not a scorer, he has the ability to be a third-line type of guy,” Finley said.

6'2 left winger.

Stats look like a goalscorer.

Well there's a college pick at least. I don't mind those.

Good size, decent stats. Let's see if he can carry his scoring touch to college.

Redwingscentral have his page updated now. It sounds like he could very well be a top 6 player for us in the future but it's far to early to tell, he has a good shot & good instincts. It seems like a decent gamble for us to take & it definitely has the chance to pay off big time for us in the end.

The article in case anyone is interested,

Wow, so that's the *3rd* pick who's actually taller than he's listed (or might be). Weird.

Now we can say "Does David Pope **** in the woods?"

but he might. So you have to be careful how you say that.

Nastasiuk is apparently .5 inches taller than his bio suggests (check his thread). & Bertuzzi apparently grew another inch or so; McDonald hinted at it by saying he's taller than Mitch Callahan.

Hmm. Interesting.

Does that make Lil' Bert 6'2''? I heard he was 6'1'' and growing.

Pretty sure that makes him 6'1" and his official draft height was listed at 6 foot. But don't quote me on that, there was some confusion. The still growing part keeps coming up tho.

Malik's first impression on Pope.... Take it for what it's worth.

#64 David Pope: Pope can deke and dangle like the puck's soap on a rope. I saw him snipe a couple of slick shots home. Other than that, I can't tell you that he made much of a first impression.

For a guy with five years to develop, good puck control and a nice shot are nice things to hear.

Not really sure how he writes that and says no impression, whatever must have caught him after with a lipper in or organizing a team kegger.

I thought that too. He has positive things to say, then no impression? Confusing.
