    I've only seen Brule in highlight reels but pictured him more like Denis Savard or Saku Koivu, type skill players. Roenick plays with an edge, somewhat like Darcy Tucker, not my favourite players but effective as well, and good two way players. Is this how you see Brule?

    Yeah I think Brule=Roenick is a little far fetched. More of a Saku Koivu style or maybe Sakic.....

    Brule's style isn't near Koivu's or Sakic's. Brule plays more aggresive than both of them. He plays with an edge every game and he has a lot of talent to go with the competivenees. I see a bit of Yzerman in him. Not saying he will be a Yzerman but plays a similar style.

    As for the orginal post I saw Devin Setoguchi play once. I was quite impressed by him but one game is not enough to make a judgement. He does play for a horrible team though.

    saku is more aggresive than you think .... saku physical strenght is so underrated !!
    he almost fought 2 times this year (the refs pulled him) he crushed 2 player on the board and he's one of the best in the league to protect the puck even with his size !

    I've watched Setoguchi all year this year with S'toon. Certainly is a talent. I think someone on this board posted that his style is like that of Jamie Langenbrunner. That is not a stretch in the least. The kid competes hard each and every night and showed at U-17's that he can almost every other player in his age class.

    As far as his team goes----worst record in the country. Devin has been a bright spot and has taken the offensive load many nights on his own shoulders.

    I see Bobby Ryan play a bunch so i'll give you a head up.

    To start off he has a pro body and is strong on the puck,he is a poor skater,lacks speed and acceleration. He has jaw-dropping one on one ability and pulls amazing dekes,smart passer who can create something out of nothing with a move or a pass, possesses a strong shot but fans quite a bit. An offense first player,his defense and skating need serious work. But his potential and ability with the puck is sensational and has all the skill he will ever need to become a top class player.

    If somebody saw Marc Staal play, I would be very thankful if you can give me something about him.

    Thanks!

    so true.... If the guy has a chance, he will throw a good check... He's also very strong on the puck and always goes in the corners.

    Only seen him twice, hasn't done anything wonderful. Plays the point on the powerplay well and skates comfortably.
