well with the way you talk about him he's definetely worth a look, i bet he's far from his max muscle weight as well. Is he right handed? more of a scorer or playmaker?

Right handed shot he his can also play the wing because of his speed more of a shooter than a playmaker one knock about him the scout said "need to learn to use his linemate better" also his play without the puck need to be better

Any predictions when he's headed? Does CSS usually have a preliminary list already available at that time of year?

'Cause that will gladly be the big center I would be rooting for....(after Getzlaf, Kopitar..... )

Sidney Crosby is the number 1 center in the NHL and is 5'11... Size isn't everything anymore. I'd prefer someone with Much More Skill and Speed, then someone with much more size.

That's what he's listed at but I have a hard time believing it. As for Tanguay, it's nothing the gym can't fix.

I think size is less important than it used to be. Also, we almost drafted exclusively according to size for about 10 years at the draft and it helped throwing us and keeping us in the worst period of the team's history. I know it's being thrown around everywhere these days, but look at the buffalo sabres... hard work, skill, speed, and intensity.

First pick of the habs 1989-2002, just a reminder:

Lindsay Vallis 6.03 -- 205
Turner Stevenson 6.03 -- 220
Brent Bilodeau 6.04 -- 230
David Wilkie 6.03 -- 215
Saku Koivu 5.10 -- 183
Brad Brown 6.03 -- 218
Terry Ryan 6.01 -- 207
Matt Higgins 6.00 -- 213
Jason Ward 6.03 -- 195
Eric Chouinard 6.03 -- 204
Alexander Buturlin 6.00 -- 192
Ron Hainsey 6.03 -- 200
Mike Komisarek 6.04 -- 237
Chris Higgins 5.11 -- 188

If we draft a big forward we just cant not miss because there will always be a small forward draft later that will come back to bite us in the butt

That list just makes me want to cry!
God that is some AWEFUL drafting and player development.


Anyone notice that the two SMALLEST players on the list are the BEST players on our team, with Mr. Komisaek getting honorable mention.


Thank God we have finally turned the corner... don't forget Carry Price on that list too.
