2nd liner, have alwaysd thought that about him. But he's a guy that will play in all situations and that makes him alot more valuable. Said it since the day he was drafted, he'll be a fan fave cause of his hardwork, playing in the rough areas, skating and skill. Like an Adam Graves, he compliments great players.

Very good 3rd liner that can fit into the 2nd line role if need be. Should put up around 40-50 points.

He's shown flashes of being a very good player. He needs to be more consistent before I change my thought: 3rd line player 10-15 goals; 20-25 assists

I don't know whether he will be an offensive threat and I'm not sure if he will ever be even a 20-20 player.
BUT....I think he has a chance to be an absolutely first rate shut-down defensive center. I'm very impressed with his defensive awareness and skill set.

Potential 2nd liner, he never takes shifts off, and he's got a whicked shot that he's not afraid to take. He could score 40 goals in a season if he lives up to all his potential. I don't think he'll get over 70 points but he's got a handful of 50 and 60 seasons in him.

100% agree. Sounds like a 7 year old nickname.

Anyway, I think a little better version of Sjo.

If playing for another team, more offensively oriented and really going for the break aways, I think he could be really productive for his line in total and not particular in points (two way, plus/minus, defense and solid positioning/awareness on ice), but also in points if that chance was given to him.

It looks like he got some skills which are not really allowed to bloom in the Renney way of hockey.

In Renneys Rangers a very solid third line two way player with skills enough to be a second liner with streaky point production.

He is a player who does a lot of things well but nothing great. Might fair better on another team/style ex...Minn. Stl. Ana.....

during the game where korpedo played on a line with zherdev and dubi, i really saw some chemistry there, korpedo has the speed to play with zherdev, zherdev is the playmaker, dubi is the guy that will be in ur face, and korpedo is the guy who will skate right by you.....id like to see renney go with that line more often, it really looked like they could be something

That's the way I feel. He's the type of of forward who fills out a 2nd line. He's definitely got skills...a hard shot, you saw his passing and vision on the Dubi tap-in, and he's strong with the puck. I think that his offensive game is still raw. He'll never carry a line, but, he can complement skilled players.

You look at that play in the Chicago game and see he has the hockey sense and ability to play an offensive game, but how consistent is the question.

The C word is the question. I've seen flashes of his play where I tell myself this guy can really play, he's got good speed, he's hockey smart, has good size and a good shot shot. Yet, two or three shifts later, he almost looks lazy out there.

And for me to see him as a 2nd or even a 1st line player, I would have liked to see more than two goals from him.

Eventually a fairly decent and consistent 3rd liner with 20-40 point potential.Still to inconsistent right now and nothing has yet shown me evidence to expect any more then that...But a 20-40 point 3rd liner who can skate could help this team for quite a few years..

With a few more years on him I can see him putting up 15 - 20 goals and 20 assists on the third line which are actually really solid numbers for the third line.

Sure, he shows flashes of brilliance and if he could play like that all year with his size and hands he could be a 35 goal 35 assist type player but I'm going with the lower expectation of the two because its more realistic.

His work ethic should eventually make him a 12-15 G, 20 A player who shines on the PK unit and is a very good even strength defensive player.

I'd say he's a solid third liner, but it's still WAY too early to tell.

Remember that preseason goal where Korpedo was behind the net on the near side corner, took the puck, powered to the front, deked around a player and put the puck in the net? Kinda hard to describe, I guess youd have to have seen it. It was a beauty of a goal.

Korpedo has a plethora of untapped potential. Wheels to burn, strong on the puck, good hands, and defensively responsible. IMHO hes got the biggest upside of ANY of our prospects. And I happen to think he will eventually get there...in 3ish seasons.
