But he is so smol
Even if you think thats a problem, Newhook is 5'11 himself.
Zegras is 6' but may as well be 5'1 because man fears contact more than Drouin. York and Soderstrom are tiny too.
I know what happened. Dumb ass execs say BCHL and went yeah no sorry. Dumb ass execs saw 5'7 and played with Jack Hughes and went ye no srry.
If Caufield was jack Hughes height, he probably would contested for first overall. Everyone was even saying so throughout the draft. Honestly if he was 6 ft, he'd probably be a top 10 pick if they were to do a decade redraft from 2010-2019 picks without hindsight... But he's only 5'7-5'8
From the Toffoli article today, it's clear to his teammates as well that he's a special talent and will be a future star!
Likely scratched in the playoffs until the coach realizes the team’s offence sucks and plugs him in.
we’ll see cole game 2 after being shut out game 1
I could be wrong but wouldn't growing up a Leafs fan just give you more motivation to play hard against them well maybe not at his age but it probably use to
How hard is it:
Or even Anderson-Suzuki-Caufield, and then see if Toffoli can get KK going again.
And end up potentially costing the series because of it lol
I know the BEL line played well the other day, but I definitely put him over Byron on that line. It actually makes that line a dangerous offensive threat.
Which article are you refering to?
I Was Meant To Be a Hab | By Tyler Toffoli
The problem is then you can’t use the line as a defensive situation line which is half the point. If Danault is out then you can put CC with KK, but if Danault is in, probably means both CC and KK are out.
I think the concern with that line is who is going to get the puck from the dirty areas (like Armia did with Toffoli-Suzuki and Caufield-Suzuki). Especially since most of the Habs D don't move the puck well.
It might work as an exploitation line and they should definitely all be on the same PP unit with Petry and one of Perry/Gallagher/Anderson.
Great piece!!!! Sign the guy to an extension already!
I'd be down with that if Suzuki was 25 and in his prime. I think that line would be a bit of a risk in our own end. Not terrible but I do think they will look at balancing things where they go with them on the PP type thing.
Toffoli from age 28-31 is great timing. Not popular to say this today based on how he is playing but signing him from 32-35 requires a team friendly deal or no deal. He's going to be a candidate to sell at the deadline in 2024 depending on the season we have. At that point, Suzuki, KK, Romanov, Caufield are in prime years so maybe they will still need the vet in Toffoli but 32+ contracts are risky in terms of paying them for the 4 previous years. Problem for another day and depends on what he does for the next 3 years. Things change. How long can Gallagher continue his level?
How about that Caufield kid? I'm liking what I am seeing and the area I'm monitoring is 5/5 play. He's getting more and more comfortable as each game goes and at 5/5, he's doing better than what I expected for a undersized 20 year old.
Great piece. Why is it in the Caufield thread though?
