Who would you rather have ?
who would you NOT rather have?
I like Bourdon, havent seen Letang play enough
After watching this year's WJCs...Letang. No question.
I've got a major hate-on for "Sucky Luc".
Offence: Crosby, Malkin, Staal
Defence: Letang, Welch, Whitney
Letang but Bourdon is and will be a solid D in this league.
Letang for me but it helps me beeng a Pens fan
Completely agree! There isn't a whole lot I like about Luc Bourdon. He tries to do too much and gets caught. He seemed to give up a lot of giveaways. Good shot but for a high first rounder I expected a LOT more. When Letang rushes, he usually get's it through and creates a good chance and is solid defensively too. Just my opinion though.
Nice to know I'm not the only one who's noticed that LB picks his spots poorly then relies on Letang to zip back to stop the resulting threat(s).
There are a few delusional Canucks fans on the WJC board who can't seem to see it though. Wonder why?
Don't know about that. I saw Letang commit more than a few bonehead plays where Luc backed him up.
I think they are both great prospects. I think Letang will be good. I also thing Bourdon has the potential for a better upside. IMHO
Hmm, not sure whose opinion to trust on this one. "Delusional Canucks fans" or someone who has a self-confessed "hate-on" for one of the players being discussed.
Letang is Bourdon lite. He makes the same boneheaded mistakes as Bourdon but doesn't have the speed to recover from them nor the size. Their shots and offensive game are pretty comperable.
Bourdon, rather easily. I'd question who's delusional in this case, *ahem*.
It's not a delusional opinion. Letang had made quite a few boneheaded plays and crappy passes, especially in the first few games. He was better in the last two.
Bourdon and Letans is like Jovo and Baumgartner part deux.
Yeah really. Let's get rid of the team! I wish the Canucks would move so then we could maybe buy the Pens! lol. Wouldn't that be something?
I clicked on this thread hoping for some comments on two players, as I've not been able to watch much at all of these world juniors.
Why post such a stupid inflamitory remark? Even if there have been dumb comments by Canucks fans else where (like there are dumb comments by any teams fans on these boards), why bring all that nonsense here? Your comment has to be at least the equal of theirs.
I've heard good things about Letang recently, so if anyone has information to add, I would certainly appreciate it.
Bourdon does not think the game as quickly or as well as Letang. But he has much more amplitude in his game. He bigger, faster, stronger. Letang will be a very steady and good NHL player but Bourdon has the natural equipment to be more dynamic at the pro level. Really comes down to whether Bourdon can learn thru experience how to read plays better and learn to take control of a game. Comparisons between Jovo and Bourdon are not misplaced. Letang upside might be someone like Liles.
Watching the WJC's, unlike most others, Ive started to dislike Letang.
Bourdon defensivly Letang offensivly.
You're delusional(sp?) if you think Letangs gonna be like Baumy.
Letang had one bad game, and it was vs. USA in the semi-finals, where he was outshined for the first time of the tournament by Bourdon.
Luc kind of reminds me of a Souray. All the tools (except he's a better skater), but lacking hockey sense big time. Having watched him in the Q and in both WJC's, I'd be very, very surprised if he ever becomes a good NHL player.
