    What a BEAUTY of a hit. We have hit threads all the time on the NHL board, so why not one here!?

    WHAT A HIT.

    Reminded me nearly exactly of MA Bergeron's hit on Morrow. Just at a faster speed.

    Credit to Stoa, too, as he got up and rejoined the play.

    College hockey so I doubt it will be up but I've checked every so often.

    And you just answered your question in the first post. It's hard to carry on a discussion about a hit none of us have seen.

    See if you can get a clip! ;)

    And anyone with the sports package from DirecTV better tune in. Hit happened in the 3rd period.

    How was the rest of the game? And as a Leafs fan, I'm curious- how did Chad Rau look?

    The game was great. High paced and back and forth. To be honest, I didn't notice Rau much at all. I know he had a few nice shots, but beyond that nothing really.

    "DESTROYED" seems a little strong. Stoa got flipped because he realized he was in a vulnerable spot, so he tried to jump over Sweatt who was coming in low for a nice hip check. The hit looked cool, but wasn't exactly physically punishing. Stoa popped right up.

    I really like Billy Sweatt though. All around solid player. And the whole game was exciting tonight.

    I think he assisted on the goal that Frazee thought he had covered but didn't.

    No, destroyed is definitely the right word. It was exactly the same as the MA Bergeron hit on Morrow. Morrow was destroyed in that hit. Maybe demolished is a better word? ;)

    I've seen Sweatt a little bit during the WJC, not enough to get a strong opinion on him but I'd like to have your take about what type of player he could become.

    Is it fair to compare him to guys like Chris Higgins, Brendan Morrow or Brendan Shanahan?

    Brendan Morrow, Brendan Shannahan...NO!!

    Bill Sweatt is just a tireless skater. IMO, the best skater of the draft. Fast, incredibally fast. A little weak though but when he puts up some weight he can be a really good prospect. His speed alone will help any team on the PK at least. Right now, he just looks like a solid all around player. He can really set up the team mates but doesnt shoot a lot. If he works on his finishing skill, he's IMO a top 7 pick. He'll go higher than most people expect though. IMO, he wont last after 15.

    There is an article of him by HF boards. Here is the link.

    I cried when the Wild passed on him in the 3rd round. Not because I am Minnesota fan...but because I knew Carman would be a stud.

    I think stud would be over stating it a little bit don't you think?

    Yeah, definitely. The guy is a good prospect, no doubt. STUD? No way.

    Depends whats the definition of "stud". If by "stud" you mean top line player who scores lots of points then no he is not, however if you think "stud" means someone who has a very high chance of making to the NHL and be a solid player then I guess he is. Anyways what style would you compare him to? I was thinking maybe a younger Michael Peca or Jeff Halpern?
