You won't be disapointed with either of those choices. The only thing bad about the wire is it had to come to an end ....and I was a big Soprano's fan as well.

I know Hank originally spiralled this thread out of control and it's the offseason, but if we could try and get back on the topic of Petan that would be awesome.

The OT thread is available for everything else.

I have been guilty of OT'ing the he11 out of this thread so I will get in line as well. I have issued myself a yellow card.

Keep up the great work.
Is there a link to this Morrissey video Hank?

On Petan I love his skill set but am really nervous about if his game will transition? I will tell you that I love the risk though because if it works out he would be a tremendous asset for us. You just can't teach some of the things he does.

Is a creative Tim Stapleton with good hands his "floor"? He is said to have a very hard shot, amongst other offensive attributes.

Well other than bust, which can happen to anyone.

I'd say NHL floor is MAB/Postma type: 3rd pair D needing some sheltering with dominate PP and offensive tools.
I'd say NHL ceiling is Enstrom that hits or a Letang depending on how his defensive game develops.

Oops... I meant Petan.

For Morrissey I tend to agree with you. A more physical Enstrom sounds about right. Letang would be great, or maybe a bit smaller Duncan Keith.

Interesting. A Duncan Keith sort of guy would be nice, alongside Bogo and Trouba.

Yea I think Petan's floor would be a Stapler type....great In Europe and the K but challenged in the NHL. Tim might have a shade more speed. I am hoping Petan grows a bit more. One of Tim's issues is he lacks ego and self confidence and could use a bit more feistiness.

I do see a Keith or Letang ceiling for Morrissey. It's what I love about the choice, he has a scary ceiling and now and then it's great to roll the dice on ceiling.

Skating, skill, intensity and smarts. Those are the building blocks for a great player. Morrissey might never be great, but he has the ingredients so he was worth taking a swing with #13.

I think Petan has a much better sense for the game than Timmy but I base that only on highlight videos so take that for what it's worth...

Definite shades of Kronwall on some of those hits in that video. Morrissey's got some excellent lateral movement. Jets blue line is going to be a punishing place to visit in a few years.

Edit: aargh! Poor Petan - we've gone on about 5 different tangents in his thread. 4 more days before we see Petan and the rest of the prospect crew at the prospect camp.

I will be sneaking out once at least to see the prospects.

Thanks Hank for the video

Watching this video it seems he thrives on drawing the players towards him then springing the trap just at the right time, kind of like Thornton but with way more speed. Interesting kid to watch, he is very good at using weird angles where the D think nothing will happen, and then there it is.

I've heard / seen the word "sneaky" thrown around about him. Does seem to fit, as you point out.

He's one of those players that seems to have a complete toolbox, the type of toolbox a smaller player needs to survive in the NHL.

I'm extremely happy with the fact that he has the mentality down. That's something that really drives the success of smaller players and it's something they usually either have or don't.

He also knows how to attack with his size and attack with his lower center of gravity.
