    I think he'd get batted around quite handily if you threw him in with the Comets right now. Two more years in college.

    Stylistically reminds me of Brad Marchand. Excited to follow his journey to the NHL. Right now He looks like a player.

    Of course not. Who in the right mind would have ranked Madden ahead of say Gaudette? Oh wait... it's February. Which month are you talking about? :popcorn:

    Other posters have brought up the Johnny Gaudreau comparisons.....wouldn't that be something. As they say for long-suffering Canuck fans, "hope floats".

    I think he is a ways away from Johnny. Gaudreau was dominating the NCAA and I beleive was at or above 2 ppg during his last year. Of Madden can do that next year, then we will be really in business.

    Johnny was 1PPG in his freshman year, then 1.5PPG in sophomore, then 2PPG in his junior year.

    Gaudreau was nine months younger than Madden as a freshman, which makes a difference. Nonetheless, Madden is clearly a promising player and he should be ready to turn pro at the end of next year's college season.

    Fare point. Age difference was much narrower as Blue and Green pointed out.

    That out the way, I’m very excited to have a non 1st rounder improving his stock like this. I’ll take this trajectory!

    I don't know if nine months makes a large difference tbh, Madden only weighs 150lbs

    Gaudreau is a very optimistic comparable. Very.

    I'm hoping for an Andrew Shaw or a JG Pageau type NHL career.

    Based on what exactly? Every time someone says "x amount of months makes a huge difference", there is never a clear answer and it seems more of a subjective opinion. I understand years, but within the same year is like saying a person in the same grade is smart than me because he is 9 months older.

    I understand if it's physical maturity, however, Madden is a twig even at nine months older.

    I was thinking more Yanni Gourde but with the whole getting drafted part being the difference. Slick, don't back down and tenacious seems to match both.

    Based on what normal people can accomplish in 9 months. US Universities with top NCAA programs have great gyms and equipment. 9 months can make a difference when you're weight training and getting proper nutrition. It doesn't have to show up much in terms of weight but in terms of strength, but 9 months of training can make a big difference.

    It's also nine months of simple physiological maturity at that age, regardless of training.

    He's obviously been effective, but is it just me or does his stickhandling style look very bizarre and awkward?
