    2 years minimum imo (depending of course on just how that first year in college goes of course, if he hits over 20 goals, it accelerates the whole process imo)

    But for these NCAAers, its usually 2-3 years, Poehling is a good example

    That joke Craig Button made about the chant now being Colé Colé Colé absolutely bombed on live TV, and it was hilarious.

    By any chance, do you know the name of the guy who's feeding Caufield on his highlights? He look like a pretty good player, I think we should give him a try-out.

    Could be possible. Debrincat made it in his D+2.

    It's not that important, but Caufields dad and elder brother are both a bit taller and apparently he grew an inch in the last few months. He could be a bit taller once he makes it.

    And they realized it, too. I think he was with McKenzie and McGuire on the panel. And they were laughing after that bad joke. :laugh:

    Im glad someone brought this up, Obviously in all the highlights, there's a certain number 6 that stands out, BUT, the number 13 (caufield) stands out RIGHT along with that number 6, and i dont want to take ANYTHING away from number 6, but a lot of people in the NHL can make passes like or similar to that, and montreal currently has an ABUNDANCE of very very decent passers

    What stood out in those highlights mostly was how well they played off EACH other, like button said, the brilliant playmaker needs a brilliant scorer just like the brilliant scorer needs a brilliant playmaker

    Hughes certainly is one of the more dynamic and better passers weve seen come around in a while, sure, but he isnt the second coming of christ, or the second coming of sidney crosby for that matter, let's just call a spade a spade here, he's mortal lol, and he's a very very good passer, and there are a LOT of those in the NHL

    You look at alot of his teammates that were picked, a lot of them can "score" sure but it looks like most are all passers first... Caufield scores ...and scores...and scores...

    check out that 44 goals in 40 games for the U-17 year, Hughes only played 24 games that season with him...
    The amount of times he has scored more than the games played is actually ASTOUNDING

    The year Matthews put up his 55 goals and 79 overall, he wasnt playing with a bunch of slackers either, but to go and pot 72 and 126 overall.. not 5 more, not 10 more, but FORTY SEVEN more goals lol...

    Just doesnt happen by accident, and it doesnt happen ONLY because he is jack hughes line mate, jack hughes assist totals can be DIRECTLY tied to caufield burying them into the back of the net, they are clearly best of friends lol

    Yup scoring 65 in 63 in D+1 in the CHL will do that, but if everyone wants to knock caufield for being on a line with Hughes... Preeeeetty sure Debrincat spent a lot of time with McDavid too lol and Strome for that matter

    Good. So when Hughes decides to pull a Tavares he can come to Montreal. :)

    Agreed. Caufield didn't exclusively play with Hughes either and still scored at a high rate.

    I wouldn't exclude him from making the NHL in two years. On Kotkaniemi or Domi's wing, he could do a lot of damage.

    Still not seeing it. Watching his highlights and everything is slow af around him, he’s got all the time in the world to shoot. I feel like this is a Gaudreau/Debrincat reaction pick. Hope I’m wrong and he smashes it.

    It sounds like he's not ****ing around when he says his goal is to make the NHL as soon as possible. I kind of expect him to -- at the very least -- make a Gallagher kind of push after a strong NCAA season. Would not be surprised at all to see him in the show in the D+2.

    What can I say, the little guy grew on me the more I dug into him. Initially I had more or less written him off, but, that was a very surface level diagnostic. You just don't get the chance to draft a scorer like him very often.

    No need to be snarky, my gut feeling isn’t worth anything. I’d rather Newhook or Heinola. Time will tell.

    Agreed, especially on the writing him off part, but, writing him off because he would of and should of been drafted SOONER is a good kind of writing off lol

    But no you're right, you dig and dig on this kid, and it just doesnt compute how he DOESNT at least become some kind of 25 goal scorer at the NHL level, the dream is he gets to 40 like DeBrincat

    i mean ..lol

    44 goals in 40 games, 29 goals in 28 USHL games, 72 goals in 64 games...and then a U-18 14 goals in 7 games..... just...like ... thats not ALL jack hughes lmao , even what like 8 goals in 6 games at U-17....its just eye popping stats ..the way that they would be talking about this person, if he was merely a few inches taller blows my mind...

    Well, 2 things

    He was hardly being snarky, and secondly, as IF you wouldnt expect some kind of snarkiness knowing you're going against the general consensus.... but no oh woe's you lol

    It will be interesting to see who comes out looking the best out of Caufield , Newhook and Krebs, for sure, I impatiently wait for the sample sizes

    The ''carried by Hughes'' argument lacks depth. It is certainly true that anyone would benefit from playing with Hughes. That's just what happen when you play with good players. The claim that the ''carried by Hughes'' argument tries to make, though, is a different one: they have to support the claim that the production is a mirage, otherwise, what the hell are they talking about?

    When you dig deeper into the statistics, there's more than enough reasonable doubt to suggest that Caufield is good for a lot of own production. When you watch the games, it removes all doubt.
