    I love to see "under-sized" players get drafted. Year after year teams look like complete fools for letting a player fall because he's not big enough.

    On another point though, I love looking at the social media accounts of players before the NHL PR team insulates them.

    Brayden Point seems like a huge jerk. lol. Has a public instagram and felt the need to start yelling at some girl who commented on his pictures. Hockey player's reputations as being d-bags as people are so well-earned.

    Great pick up.

    I've seen 120 whl games the last 3 years. Point is one of the best players I have seen during that time. He has the skill to be a first rounder. Only reason he drops to 7th round is his size. But this guys is tenacious and strong on the puck. I think he is the steal of the later rounds of the draft. A lot of teams will regret not picking him.

    Bump. He is playing for Canada at the World Juniors. How do you guys think he has looked, and what sort of impact do you see him making if/when he makes the NHL?

    He's probably a guy who won't really answer that kind of question until we get to see him in Syracuse.
     
  14. Bobby Mack just sang the highest praises of Point on Tsn. Talking about how everytime he saw Point in the WHL, he was the best player on the ice. That's something from the Man, the Myth, the Professor, The Wizard, Bob McKenzie.

    He's done that at every opportunity too. And Bob is pretty reserved.

    Point's got another year in the dub after this one, right? Really can't wait to see him in Syracuse.

    Pretty good, considering he was glued to the bench the whole time. 4 points in 7 games.

    I've watched Point a few times this season, I'd say he's fairly comparable with Tyler Johnson (light)

    I've been saying this as well. Fast, tenacious in puck battles, smart, and he has an excellent two-way game. Cooper would love this guy.

    He was Canada's 13th forward for most of the WJC, so he didn't get much ice time. When he did play, he looked good.


    Yep. He's not as fast as Johnson, but he's got a good motor. Like Yzlamic Extremist said, he's very tenacious on the forecheck. And like Johnson he's not afraid to go to and is surprising good in the dirty areas for a guy his size. He's got plenty of skill too.

    I believe Point was recently voted the top player in the WHL by players and coaches. Huge compliment beating out a guy like Reinhart and several other high draft picks.

    When I saw him in Brandon what stuck with me was how accurate he was with his wrist shot From inside the circles. He put that puck exactly where he wanted it. It's probably why he scores so much ... that wrister is money.
     
  24. Source? I can't find anything about this anywhere.
