Q&A with Peter Delmas

Selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, this 18-year-old from Allison, Ontario is already considered one of the best young puck stoppers in the team’s system.

Sounds like he's got a solid head on him. And styling his game after fellow large goalie Luongo cant hurt either. Sounds like this kid could actually make it in the bigs in the future. I would love to see him be the starter in 4 years or so. Thats one thing we've never really developed, is a proven NHL goalie....i mean, Budaj is as close as we've been...

That might be a detriment to a goalie. Honestly I'd feel more comfortable if he thought he was Napoleon, campaigned for Lyndon LaRouche or was doing post grad in mathematics.

I mostly looked up to Roberto Luongo. He has the same kind of style as me and I really like to pattern myself after him.

This one scared me a little bit though.

Why?....Luongo is a top 3 goalie in the NHL....

Here's the thing... playing a style and playing a system are two totally different things.

Obviously, Roberto Luongo plays the butterfly style, and there is nothing wrong with that. I play that too... Nowadays, you are going to be burned if you don't. However, Roberto Luongo's system should only be played by Roberto Luongo. For example, he is a very big man, therefore his positioning doesn't have to be as good as a smaller guy such as Peter Delmas' would.

I have not seen Delmas play enough to comment on his system, but I can tell you that if he played identical to Roberto Luongo he would be torched in a league such as the QMJHL and would not have been a second round selection. Obviously, Delmas is a fairly big guy himself so he can play similar, but he'd have to rely on his quickness and positioning more than Roberto.

I'm confused. Delmas is only an inch shorter and he's still growing and will put on a lot of weight as well once he passes 20. He's going to take up just as much of the net as Luongo by the time he hits the NHL and he's got great quickness to boot.

Well, Luongo is one of those stars, that shines individually but has yet to prove that he's a hotshot and constantly lifts mediocre teams into the playoffs. He has done that once in 6 seasons as a starter. Even Theo's résumé is more impressive.

Personally, as a young kid, I would look up to someone who actually had success. But maybe that's just me.

That would certainly make him entertaining.

How about a goalie who detroys VCR's in the coaches room, rips french doors off their hinges, and throws bartenders up against the wall because they won't turn up the volume on the juke box?

thats fine as long as he doesn't go on drunken rampages, try to bribe the police with a billion dollars, or have the starting goaltender injured in an "accident" at the hotel..

Personally I'd just like him to think he was Batman, or an impenetrable brick wall.
