Ok. Lol thanks.
Maybe, it felt like he never could play or skate hard because he was constantly scrambling to stay in position. Like wasn’t he just selected top prospect outside the NHL?
I am not saying that he played bad in the WJC. But his play there was say on par with a 2-3 round pick. A team like Russia will have maybe something like 2-4 first round picks, 3-5 second round picks and the same in the 3rd. So he was of course still one of the better players on Team Russia. But a top 10 pick that is doing really well in the KHL should litterary be a dominating force at the WJC.
Kravtsov is more of a playmaker than Laf and Kakko. I also think he see’s the ice and reads the plays better.
Laf is the ultimate talent, but not a playmaker, and Kakko potentially is going to be the physical beast that does what CK20 does when he’s good.
Basically this entire idea is ‘because it’s a need let’s invent a center out of thin air’ and whether it’s Laf, Kravtsov or Kakko they’re going to be coming up short in some area or two or three and if they aren’t productive—take a step back it might not be helpful to their development. More under 20 centers eventually end up as wings than centers. It usually doesn’t work wings becoming centers.
Krav. He moves like a center and his skating is better than the other two.
Yes, overextended tricep and he battled the flu
but dat wuz den an dis is now.
After last night, NOW what do ya think?
So there's a valid reason for my guy to be excused for not killing it on all cylinders, unlike last night.
my answer 6 months ago was Kravtsov and it still is
i just see a center when i look at him
1) since when is Lafreniere not a playmaker??
2) I cannot believe this is still being discussed. None of them are going to be centers. Not really sure where the fantasy came from than every single first round forwards is a future center.
I’m going with everyone else and say Kravstov.
He skates well, has good vision, and some of the passes he was making yesterday were really impressive. I think with better talent around him some of them go in.
None of this has come true, so no you are not right or "way ahead of the curve."
calling out for BS
phase 1: put KK w/breadman, check, looks very good
that has already happened
phase 2: Krav gets here and is so good ...
that is now in progress
... so many are calling for my experiment which is next.
that is soon to happen
I WAS and AM ahead of the curve on this.
