He's a big dman, but a project. Hope it pans out here.

Bye Bye Nash... Didn't even know you.

• He competed for Team Slovakia at the 2010 World Junior Championships, as well as the 2009 and 2010 Under-18 World Championships.

• Marincin’s goal is to play in North American next season, hopefully in the Canadian Hockey League.

• He started playing hockey when he was six years old and he played his whole minor hockey career for HC Kosice.

• His most memorable hockey moment was playing in an all-star game against Slovakian NHL players and his childhood hockey hero was Jaromir Jagr.

Is this the first you've heard of the Nash issues? He's been refusing Edmonton's advice for 3 years and we weren't going to sign him on his part, not ours.

Yeah, yeah. I suppose getting anything for him is good, much less a 2nd round pick. This guy is a gamble, as 2nd round picks go, though.

You can't be patient with someone who you lose if he decides not to sign within the next year.

Somethin for nothing though right? I just hate how we traded up for Nash.

Marincin is a guy who is pretty boom-bust. With his size and ability, he could develop into a very good defenceman.

Nothing yet. But the commentators are saying how he's on his fourth agent already...that does not look good for character.

Papa is the biggest problem here (sense of entitlement). I see the Oilers having lots of issues with him if they picked him.

It sounds like Marincin might be drafted by Prince George and play next year in the WHL (according to Tencer). That would be stellar news.

Sorry to see Nash go, but Marincin is an exciting prospect.

Not sure whether it will be Prince George, but he will play in the CHL 100% next season.

Scouting reports

Hockey News

34. 6-4 187

When scouts see a Slovakian D-man with Martin Marincin's size and skating ability, they can't help but rue the day they dismissed Zdeno Chara and vow they won't get fooled again.

Marincin is nowhere near ready to play in the NHL, But it took Chara almost five years in the pro ranks to make his mark as a dman. If Marincin makes it, he will be a similar type of project.


In fact Marincin is a part of a group of about a half-dozen large dman in this year's draft, at least one of whom is going to be a star.

"Who was Shea Weber seven years ago?" A scout asked "One of these guys is going to turn out to to be a guy where we all say, "Wow, why didn't we see that? Is it going to be this guy"

On the postive side, Marincin made the Slovak team for the WJC, but struggled against the opposition. He also struggled at times at the Slovak under-20 team that competes in the Slovakian Elite League.

Project defenseman

Redline Rank 50

Tall Lanky D with a huge frame to fill out. Good skating ability for his size; Pivots well and shows good agility, though he lacks balance and acceleration. Skates with head up and looking for plays - smooth puck handler with good passing touch. Reads play quickly and makes good decisions. Doesn't force things that aren't there. However, once he makes his outlet pass, his arms sag to his side and he's not interested in trying anything else offensively. Lacks an aggressive mindset and rarely ventures off the blue line at offensive end. Inconsistent defensively - positioning in own zone needs improvement. Tough to beat 1-on-1 off the rush because of his mobility and long reach, but can be beaten in tight by quick, shifty forwards. Counts mostly on the pokecheck and skating ability rather than using his big body, but is improving in the physical aspect and does a good job pinning men against the wall/

Projection: Big, shutdown #4-5 dman
Style compares to: Lavislav Smid (with a better shot)

Report Card
Size/Strength Excellent
Skating Average
Puck Skills Average
Shot Good
Offensive Play Average
Defensive Play Good
Physical Play Good
Competitiveness Good
Hockey Sense Good
Strengths
1. Anticipation
2. Tough to win space against
3. Patience
Area’s For Improvement
1. Still very raw
2. Hesitates too often before
making plays
Skill:
Huge hulking defender who can use
his strength to deny space. Will do
whatever he has to be done to
frustrate opponents.
Scouting Report:
Marincin’s biggest upside is his
potential. The fact that he is still so
raw and can be moulded makes him
a very appealing prospect. Add
that to his already very strong size
which still has plenty of room to
build muscle and you get the
prototypical “big” defender. Not the
quickest player, however Marincin
reads the ice well. Headsy, he
understands the game and
compensates for his own limitations
by consistently adjusting to match
his opponents. He makes good hard
and crisp passes but can take too
long to make plays at times. He is a
physical and intimidating presence
around his own net and isn’t afraid
to bend the rules.
NHL Potential:
Depth shutdown defender.
Style compares to: Milan
Jurcina
