    It's unique in a way,but cool they did that. My understanding is in the States you have to take a language course.Most pick Spanish understandably of course,but you get the few that select another. Think it's pretty cool that some celebrity's can speak another language aside from their own.

    In one of those vids about the draft they show Caufield talking to Turcotte I believe saying he took French years ago but he forgot most of it or something to that effect.

    I never got past AA, but played a lot of pickup hockey with friends and strangers who’ve played everything from house to AAA.

    I don’t recall the exact date, but it was in the early-2000’s; my friends and I played some pickup and who steps on the ice? Lyle Odelein. I don’t know how many shared my opinion, but back in the day, I always thought of him as a slug on the ice and limited talent.

    Well, he absolutely schooled us. I recall an instance where I tried some beer league power move and he just picked the puck off and skated and dangled through all my friends and roofed it on our goalie.

    Long story short, if you are in the NHL, you got some talent regardless how you look on TV or in-person.

    He would have lost it fast if his mom said he started at age 12 and took at least 4 years of it which means until 16 at least.

    Odelein was a pretty good hockey player. A legitimate top 4 in his prime imo. Don't know why many people always considered him as just a goon. IMO he was a step over a guy like Gorges. He did 31 points with NJ right in the middle of the dead puck era. He was mostly focused on defense but he had some offensive tools in his prime. He declined quickly when he turned 30 though like many physical players do.

    Odelein was a monster in his era. My favorite Odelein moment? I forget which playoff game it was, but the opposing team dumped the puck right to him while another player was lining him up for a nasty hit. He chipped the puck into the face of the of the player that was supposed crush him. He was ejected but was laughing his ass off while going to the dressing room.

    Cole's father and grandfather were born in Canada. Sault St Marie. May explain why he took French.

    SSM eh? That's an interesting area,being divided by 2 countries. Not familiar enough to know if SSM in Canada learns french by default or what. Always good to learn more than 1 language,but Spanish might be more helpful depending on travel plans.

    I think Caufield is more of a LW but can play both sides. A Caufield KK Suzuki line would be a lot of fun to see or have Domi and Suzuki on a line with Caufield KK Ylonen down the road.

    Caufield is a RW who loves to score from the left side. I think as a RW he tricks D cores by always reverting to the Left side to score his goals when they expect the RW to be on the right side.

    He was playing LW at the summer showcase and when I saw him with the USNDTP he was at LW. I don't know what he will play at Wisconsin. I know he can play both and does so we'll see which one he ends up.

    I’ve always felt wingers shouldn’t play their offwing, but Caulfield is the rare exception. He’s a LW going forward in my book.

    Yeah. Its easier for a right hander to shoot when your are playing on left side. But if you want to dangle it will be easier if you are on right side. So for that reason i could see caufield on left side but we need on the right thought

    I went back and looked at the game vs Canada and you are correct, LW on the PP but listed at RW for the game.

    Well hopefully they play him where he feels he's at his best. Leks imo is much better at RW and yet he barely ever plays there. I know some have said Drouin is actually better at RW then LW but I can't say as I don't pay much attention to him.
