    The kid is playing well for the Saskatoon Blades and currently sits at 10 goals and 5 assists for 15pts in 13 games. Some people were wondering about this kid before the season started, but I'm wondering if he's starting to solidify himself as a 1st round draft pick and probably in the range of 10 - 15?

    Well, this was my prediction since the off season. Here's hoping he keeps it up. I had him going around 8.

    For people who have seen him play.

    In what fashion does he score the majority of his goals. I've read some posts that claim he has "power forward" potential. This assesment, if accurate, worries me somewhat, as I wonder how effectively someone who is listed at 5'11'' 180lbs can play the role of power forward at the higher levels.

    I saw him last year with Sakatoon and not once did I say to my self that Setoguchi is a powerforward. He's a banger though. He's extremely competitive and strong...I guess I can see the power forward tag because down low, in front of the net, he's very hard to move and he likes to hit and crash. I would imagine he scores alot by doing the hard work in front of the net, but he sure looks to be one of hell of a playmaker...You wouldnt draft this guy for his finishing ability, but for his work ethic and playmaking.

    It's pretty hard to be a 5'11'' powerforward...

    The guy has 10 goals; third in the league... That appears to be a finisher to me?

    So who would you compare him to? Cheechoo? Radivojevic? Morrow? Cole? Maybe Deadmarsh?

    He has a hard shot but it's a wild one.

    Cheechoo definitely I'd agree. Radivojevic, not as much. Not as gritty as Morrow. Nor the same type of power as Cole. Deadmarsh, once again not as gritty.

    I think another good comparison is Jamie Langenbrunner, with a bit more skill and toughness in his potential.
