    Green has put up better numbers to this point than Hamhuis did in his first 200 WHL games. On a poorer team. He is the same size and plays a very similar style. Mike deserves to go in the top 15 picks.

    Are you new to sarcasm?

    Green and O'Neill are going to give some teams great value 10-20. I'd love for the Caps to trade up and get one.

    the same Mike Green that playes on the Blades? get your #'s right if it is. Hamhuis averaged .63 PPG in the W, while Green has only averaged .53. In Hamhuis's last season in the W, he averaged over a point per game. Green has never come close. If you are going to go by the #'s atleast go by the right ones. Unless your talking about another Mike Green and I did this research for nothing

    Actually, in Hamhuis' draft year he didn't average a point per game, but he did average more than Green has.

    The main point is that Green was basically the Blades top offensive player this season, which is no small consideration. The Blades were one of the lowest scoring teams in the league, and clearly Green would have had more points on a better team. Hamhuis finished 5th in team scoring in his draft year.

    Of course Hamhuis was drafted 12th overall. And if Green goes somewhere around 15-20, it will hardly be a major shock. Personaly, I think Green is a safe pick and a sure-fire NHLer.

    Correct me if I'm wrong... but didn't Hamhuis' development skyrocket after he got drafted? It would have been hard to predict that he'd become the player he is today on draft day.

    He's merely laughing at the poster in question. Having never seen either, he bases everything on statistics. That's what he's mocking and I certainly think he has a valid point.

    Not really - he was a top prospect for that draft year, included in the top 10 for many mock drafts. He continued to improve as many expected. His emergence as a top 4 d-man in the NHL is not a major surprise.

    You're saying that because you don't know db23. To him, Korneev is a better prospect than Kastsitsyn...

    I was comparing them up to this point in Green's career. If you read the thread there, "billy", you will notice I said first 200 WHL games. Green has one more year of eligibility and if he has any sort of a team around him should average more than a point per game next season.

    I was talking to Kyle Woodlief on the phone the other day, when I ordered the draft catalouge and he told me that Green compared to Craig Rivet. If you dont believe me call him yourself. Now, I think Hamhuis is a top notch defensemen and had a great rookie campaign. Green isnt even close to Hamhuis.

    Craig Rivet is not that bad, sure he's overpaid and not a top pairing defense but he get the job done.

    Condescendence is about all db23 deserves based on his history of comparing statistical data and little else.

    Exactly. Skating is huge also.

    The year was 1994-95. Player A played for Tri-City. Players B and C played for Kamloops.

    Player A = Terry Ryan
    Player B = Shane Doan
    Player C = Jarome Iginla

    I like Rivet a lot. You can think he's overpaid, but is that your money? Sure you pay for the ticket, but the ticket would be the same price with or without him. So I say, we're a way better team with Rivet.

    Actually if Green was 2 inches taller & 20 pounds heavier, he'd be the 1st or 2nd D in this draft. Just my opinion.
