    very different talent levels and very different type of games too. Matt is a playmaker and Brady is a net crashing physical presence.

    And in terms of talent level Matt has put up elite offensive numbers at every level he has played at, Brady has never put up elite offensive numbers at any level.

    Both are invaluable and will be big parts of any cup winning team.

    Yes, I disagree with the assumption. He might, but I'll file it under the massive overhyping of Brady until he actually does.

    Sorry if that bothers his fans.

    If you compare first 2 years Brady slightly ahead on pace on regular season.

    Brady makes me think of a better version of Holmstrom

    He is bigger and a bit more skilled, has better vision too, but he just lives in front of the net the way Holmstrom would. Everything about the way he plays is the type of stuff that typically translates to the playoffs.

    Time will tell, but i like his odds.

    Hughes easy.

    Better talent than any D in this draft, and maybe most drafts.

    I was hoping the habs wouldn’t take Brady, so we could.

    Matt has played with elite players pre+NHL like Markers and Matthews. Brady has played with guys the calibre of Josh Norris. Brady has also put up elite numbers at every elite international tournament he's played at.

    Brady is easily one of the most unique players in the NHL. He has everything but skating. Can play in all situations, with any line mates.

    Personally my favourite aspect about Brady is that he’s Brady. A 2nd born son to a HOF player, shadowed by his brother and doubted by his peers. The chip on his massive shoulders is huge, and he will use it as leverage.

    Kid’s a gamer. Going to be our Messier. That’s how you spell messiah in hockey.

    True but it's not like Matt was a passenger to them. And besides if you have en elite skill set you put up numbers regardless.

    + like just watch them play dude. The skillset gap is apparent.

    Anybody watching "Stuck with the Tkachuks" on Youtube? Brady and Mathew go head to head in things like frisbee golf, field hockey and other games. It's pretty good.. both brothers have likable personalities and their younger sister might be the best athlete of the family.

    I'm going to guess you weren't one of the people who claimed that Brady only put up numbers last season because he played with Stone, right?

    People will be continuing to eat crow about Brady for years. Usually it’s the people who were wrong about him on draft day who want to see him fail

    Brady would put up those numbers or close to with almost anyone.

    A lot of skill players struggle because they don't go to the front of the net for those easy goals. Brady is the exact opposite.

    If it were possible, I'd draft the sister ahead of both brothers, easily. That family has amazing athletic DNA.

    Did Dorion overpay White? Perhaps my memory is failing me but i recall the consensus here being the White contract was a pretty reasonable deal for the team and that it was good to see the team lock up young players.

    White had a bad 1st year on that deal and part of that was injury driven.

    I just don't recall the bandwagon jumping on the White deal as a bad deal at the time and an injury driven poor year shouldn't change that

    3rd or 4th best forward?

    Would you trade him straight up for Nylander?

    Does Brady seem unhappy with his situation?

    I was hoping the Habs would take Brady, so we couldn’t.
