    Much as I hate the Flames fans, I have to admit he is making a beleiver out of me. 7 points in 3 games. Maybe he is ready for the NHL.

    This guy was unbelieveable tonight. I really believe that Phaneuf could step right into the NHL today. He is hands down the greatest WHL player I have ever seen.

    I was just being amazed by his stats (ok, only 3 games, but still :amazed: ) and I checked if there was a thread about it...

    I thought this guy was a stay-at-home gritty D...

    and to think he was the THIRD defenseman drafted in his draft year. coburn and suter are no slouches, but still.

    At one point in his draft year, he was slated around 15 or so.

    Not a bash at Barker, but from seeing them live they are not even in the same league -and Cam is only 1 year younger...




    *For the record... I like Barker enough*

    Keep in mind the talent levels of Montreal as well compared to what Dion is working with too. Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't it against the Penguins the big point night for Souray. Shean Sonovan got a hattrick against them as well if this is the case, so I would't use 1 game as such a factor. Unless all those 6 points were goals, which they were not.

    Oh who cares? The Souray thing was a joke.

    Back on topic, Dion Phaneuf is starting to show the offence in him that people who haven't watched him just don't know he has. His shot from the point and poise on a powerplay is really something to marvel at for a 19 year old. His shot is booming, fast, accurate and most important, he can get it off quick.

    With Leopold's playmaking ability, and Phaneuf's show you should see a very good Calgary Flames powerplay when he makes it to the NHL.

    Don't forget Iginla infront of the net. What a lethal triangle.

    Five years from now I see the Flames with a devastating powerplay.....

    Leopold-Phaneuf on the points
    Iginla circling
    Kobasew on the boards
    Lombardi behind the net....

    7 points in 3 games and most D prospects start thinking they are Bobby Orr. He'll get his head back on straight. Nothing to worry about.

    At the time he posted this it was 7 points in 3 games. So there is no need to say he made a mistake in saying 7 points in 3 games.

    Looks like Calgary has a real good one. I look forward to seeing him play in the NHL in a couple years, maybe earlier.

    wow, we must be desparate for news.
    7 pts in 3 games, now wait, 5. Guess he is a lock for the Calder.
    5 games do not a season make. Let's be patient. Maybe he is that good, maybe not. Leading a league after three games is not much of a statistical base to go on.
