    In his case it's gonna be longer than the others. The transition to NCAA been okay. You will heard it more about him next year. He's big and natural. He has huge upside. He's gonna be the kind of player you will need when you're gonna go to the war. He has a good heavy shot and accurate. He likes to deliver and throwing big hits. It's just a matter of time when you gonna see it put it all together.

    True. Better the 2nd half of his 1st NCAA season (more quality time & linemates). Started throwing himself around more, and scoring that OT goal in the Frozen Four was HUGE (for him especially). We anticipate him being in Chi in a couple years.

    Count me among his fans. I also think he will have a very good NHL career and will be a quality leader on the ice.

    He doesn't posses the Guerin's speed, but he has a similar package in terms of scoring blistering shot. He reminds me Scott Hartnell 6 years ago.

    I saw Skille play regularly this year and Hartnell is a pretty good comparison - although I think he has more offensive potential than Scott.

    Pretty common for a frosh to need so time to adjust, especialy on a talented team like Wisco where they have to work their way up on the depth chart.

    I was not enthusiatic when the Hawks picked him---wanted Kopitar instead--- thought Skille had a terrible WJHC --not impressed with his frosh season at wisconsin--but listened to all the excuses--his young age--the Wisconsin defense-first "systyem" held back his attack style /talent etc...I didn't buy the excuses...

    Having said all that negative stuff about him--Skilke will emege as a big scorer for the Badgers this season IF they put him with "the KID" ( sensational recruit Kyle Turris who is going to make everyone in NCAA hockey think that Phil The Thrill over in Minnesota was a nothing in comparison)--Turris will set up Skille so many times he cannot fail to score bigtime plus Skille will collect so many assists as Turris assaults the NCAA scoring records for goals)--in short Skille will now get a lot of help so that he can't possibly fail...

    Turris has to finish high school before he can attend college, and that's not going to happen this season.

    I saw Skille at the end of the year and he was a horse. I think he has a chance to be a very good PF.

    great comparison there. I didn't really get the Guerin comparisons to be honest.. Skille is a more offensively talented Hartnell.

    From what i have heard lately they buried it. They were both hockey stars in WI and they had thier little fights. Nothing that big. Just kids being kids. And parents being parents wanting thier kid to be the star.
