He was decent with Vaughan but then again I wasn’t high on Perfetti off of that team either. Lol.
Thanks for the catch
I think you have Kleven's game confused. He's a lot better of a skater than Stanley, and I don't find it to be a good comparison because Stanley is 2-3 inches taller and a lot heavier. Kleven is great at carrying the puck out of the defensive zone. He has no clue what to do with the puck once he exits the defensive zone, but he definitely can carry it out of the zone. He's also a very reliable defender, which I think has been one of the questions about Stanley.
I hope you are right OP. If Chromiak and Knazko gets drafted in the 1st and 2nd round, that would be amazing for Slovakia.
Amirov's name is Rodion (with a stress on the last syllable), not Rodin. As far as I remember, Rodin is a player.
Eichel and Matthews were undoubtedly better prospects in their draft year
I think this is the first list I've seen that hasn't been completely sleeping on Sebrango (ie. first I've seen to rank him above round 4 territory).
He's going to pull a Harley
I'd put Lucas Raymond at no.2. I don't know much about Askarov, but I'm surprised to see a goalie so high.
I’m really not a fan of Raymond TBH. It was hard not having him in the top 3 because I know he has skill but I just don’t like his game, like when NHL teams have certain players higher or lower. I think Askarov is the next great goalie and would take him at 1 if not for the risk
I don't think he's much better at all. In all the games I watched I don't think Kleven ever skated with the puck for more than a few feet if at all. Guy has absolutely no ability with the puck. He is an old school defender I see very little future for him in the NHL. Stanley can at least skate with the puck, shoot and create offensive plays. He's miles better at the same age which doesn't say much for Kleven. Dude is a black hole.
I think Schneider and Zary could be a bit higher on the list. Pretty much complete players with a couple dynamic attributes. Sanderson is your 2nd ranked defenceman, but Schneider plays so much quicker and physical. He wore an A for the Wheat Kings last year, he'll wear the C this year, I bet. That makes me feel safer about him when it comes to work ethic, sacrificing time for improvement, etc.
Mysak has looked slow during international tournaments. I was impressed with Gut and Cikhart at the Ivan Hlinka, I think it is important to understand that being better right now, does not necessarily mean they will be drafted higher. Gut can fly with the puck and Cikhart is 6'3 with a powerful shot and aggressive. They will both play in the WHL next season.
I don't understand how Holtz and Perreault can be so far apart, both of these players have elite shooting abilities and know how to get open in the offensive zone. I wouldn't be surprised to see Gunler take over Holtz though, he seems more comfortable and skilled with the puck on his stick.
Interesting, given Cikhart wasn't even nominated for the tournament.
I mean’t the u17s for Cikhart, that’s where I saw him play. Gut at the Hlinka and Cikhart at the U17s caught my eye more than Mysak.
