    I heard about this guy and had visions of the next Bondra. Then I heard he is a bit slow footed. Can someone who has seen this guy give me a comparison as to who he plays like? Also. is his spped adaquete or is he slow?

    I guess I trust people like you to be honest. That is a mistake.

    Just a note, the guys who see them every day never make mistakes like Daigle or Fogarty don't they? The reality is most people here don't get to see guys in person. In some ways, they have an objectivity. I still value people who have seen the guys play impression. Have you seen Kopitar play or are you just taking a convenient opportunity to bust my chops?

    You didn't answer the question. No problem, I guess you're too busy showing people how smart you are. Just because you don't understand what is meant by a type of objectivity, it does not make it invalid. If everyone who watched a game was able to translate impressions into evaluations there would be no need for scouts would there? Further if one had biases(imagine that) they would tend to skew their evaluations. We never know if a big scorer is a Sidney Crosby or a Patrice Lefebre. Despite your objections, it is fun to talk about. Never was a scout, never will be, don't want to be. Prospects are usually sight unseen. As far as Capitals players, I was a season ticket holder for years. I have seen Brendan Witt and Olaf Kolzig far more than the people who go on and on about them here. Care to launch on a diatribe against them? :p:

    Kopitar is far from the next Bondra.

    It seems like the first reply was deleted and the rest I can't account for.

    Several comments from Vinland were deleted that had nothing to do with this thread. The question was who would you compare Kopitar to style wise. Bondra's game centered around speed and from what I have heard here, Kopitar is not fast at all. I was wondering if someone who had seen him could give me a comparison.

    I've seen him (and commented on him here) many times. Jason Allison and Tomas Vanek are good comparisons.

    Nothing wrong with either of those! How does he compare to Latendresse in your eyes?

    2005 IIHF World U18 Championship Div I Group A

    Kopitar was the leading scorer in this tourny that ended last week. Haven't seen any discussion or info on this tourny so I thought I'd post it here as a Kopitar update.

    http://www.iihf.com/Hydra/Tournamen.../xml/1000000039/IHM1000000039Z07_85B_1_0.html


    Belarus won the tourny beating Slovenia in the final game 5:3. Belarus is promoted to the 2006 IIHF World U18 Championship next April.

    Kopitar was scoreless in the final game and looks like he went ape-**** with 14 PIM.

    Oh BTW, Siarhei Kostitsyn (Andrei's brother) lead Belarus in scoring.
