Brodziak vs. Perry

Just an interesting comment about Perry. He reminds me alot of Kyle Brodziak. Both guys that were drafted fairly late last year, albeit Brodziak alot later (7th round). Both are about the same size and both are players that have come out of no where to be at/near the top of their respective leagues scoring races. The biggest knock on each of them is their skating. Plus Perry is known to be somewhat soft unlike Brodziak.

I could be way off. I haven't seen Perry play at all and Brodziak only a couple of times. But it really strikes me that Perry is not the guy we want in return for Comrie.

This could possibly be the largest understatement of the year.

Kyle Brodziak was the best skater on the ice at the Oil-Bears Rookie game. He was dominant on the PK hounding his man. If his skating is a knock on him, some scouts need to look for a new line of work.

That was the worst game in history you must remember. Plus the Bears aren't exactly world class talent. With Lowe in attendance I am sure he had a little motivation but I think the scouting reports are true from what I've seen (including that exibition game).

Brodziak is a great skater. That more than anything got him drafted.

Never mind, hmm. The couple of games I've watched, he struck me as average skating wise.

Am I missing something on Brodziak then? How does a forward that is 6'3" and almost 200 pounds. Who averaged during his draft year almost a point per game and also had 84 PM's. A player that is a great skater and doesn't play too soft. Why does this kid get drafted in the 7th round then? That doesn't make sense to me.

How is 28th Overall in the draft fairly late? I don't have any feelings toward Perry but he was an early pick.

Wasn't he the guy who worked with a skating instructor over the summer and had vastly improved his skating between the prospects camp in June and training camp in September? So when he was drafted, his skating was below average, but he brought it up to average or better after being drafted...?

He opted out of the draft in his "real" draft year. That year he was 72gp 8g 12a 20p

I think it's Zack Stortini that you are thinking of Bart? Just did a quick read of his interview and he was talking about receiving instruction over the summer.

From camp, Brodziak's skating is what stood out for me above anything else. Although he was tall, he didn't look like he had filled out yet, but seemed to handle himself okay.

From what I saw of him tonight at the Russia/whl game he has surprising agility for a 6'3" 19 year old. He wasn't slow by comparison to anyone else tonight either.


Perry soft? He has been getting a lot of pims for someone who doesn't fight, over 100 last season and he's at 44 in just 22 games this year. That's a whole lot of tripping goin' on.

I don't see how Perry was a late pick fellas, he was drafted in the 1st round. I see him play down here alot and his main problem was that he was weak, but over the summer he improved his strength and he is a real good prospect now. That being said, (the oilers are my 2nd fav. team) I would not want him to be the centre piece of any deal with anaheim. Now if he was part of a package and he came along with Vishnovsky (sp?) that would be a different story.
