Seguin vs Hall Scouting

I found an interesting blog by someone who analyzed the play of both prospects with some notes on Fowler too. He goes into detail about what they did during the game.

Seguin vs Hall Report

Quote:
Overall Taylor Hall was definitely the top prospect in this game. He played superbly and unlike my first OHL viewing of him he showed a very good knack for passing the puck effectively, creating space with his speed, and showing a solid combination of playmaker and sniper. He showed a ton of versatility in this game and showed how dynamic his speed can be in all areas of the ice.

Seguin showed brilliant flashes of skill, however he ran up against a better team and couldn't beat the Spitfires all by himself. That said to face the defending Memorial Cup champs who were gearing up for the playoff drive and still create numerous grade A chances for himself and his teammates shows just how immense his skill is.

Fowler is simply not a franchise defense prospect, my personal opinion is that a franchise defenseman is a guy that dominates offensively and defensively. I do not see an elite offensive upside in Fowler. My personal opinion is that there is a very large drop between Hall and Seguin and Fowler at #3. The Oilers would really be doing the future of the franchise a dis-justice if they end up not finishing the season as the worst team in the league ensuring that we get 1 of Hall or Seguin.
It also mentions how many times one of them was the star of the playoff game:

(SH 0-0-0 0-1st, 0-2nd assists)
3 Star Selections: 3
1st Star: 1
2nd Star: 2

3rd Star: 2 (So he did raise his game in the 1st round).

Cam Fowler 6gp. 0-4-4 Ev 2pim.
(ES 0-3-3 2-1st, 1-2nd assists)
(PP 0-1-1 1-1st, 0-2nd assists)
(SH 0-0-0 0-1st, 0-2nd assists)
3 Star Selections: 0 <--Notice this too.
1st Star:
2nd Star:
3rd Star:
For the sake of the Edmonton franchise, I pray they win the lottery and take Taylor Hall. Who knows if Bettman would allow a Canadian franchise to draft first? I'm not sure if Seguin can handle the pressure in this market if he couldn't raise his game when the game was on the line. Of course, it's still a small sample size and some players need experience before doing well in the playoffs. They are only 18 yrs old at the end of the day.

Quote:
That said it is all about projecting a player going forward. One thing that can't be projected is heart and leadership. You might be able to learn to be a leader I suppose, but most leaders are just born to lead. Right now Seguin has a world of pressure on him and has to face a powerhouse of a team every time that he steps onto the ice. That said great players still find a way to get the job done and Seguin just hasn't to this point.

Who is this BBO character? Where did he come from? Is he a menace to society?

With so many question left to be answered, will this mysetious "someone" come to the forefront and reveal his true identify....

Stay Tuned.

horrible at what--there seems to be some confusion about the current question

which is




Just as a traffic light turns green, a waiting car starts off with a constant acceleration of 6.00m/s^2. At the instant the car begins to accelerate, a truck with a constant velocity of 21.0m/s passes in the next lane. How far will the car travel before it overtakes the truck? How fast will the car be travelling when it overtakes the truck?
