    I’m not offended. I don’t really care.

    I think him starting in NHL would hinder his development personally.

    When he's ready Byfield will at least, along with Kopitar, provide the King's with two "do it all" centers that other teams must focus on neutralizing.

    Seemed like he kind of had tunnel vision at the world juniors, too much of a one man show. It's a short tourney and he was young so I'll be interested to see if that was or wasn't an accurate representation of what kind of player he is.

    I like how the surroundings in the photo are very different from the sparse modern team headquarters that most players are signed at. It looks like, instead of flying him out to LA, the organization flew a few representatives up to Ontario to have Quinton sign in his grandmother's dining room.

    1) He looks happy to sign...very good thing to see from someone we invested so much already to draft. Feeling good already. Everyone knows I sang Stutzle's praises when the choice was up in the air (got hooked on watching his video feed like Draft Dynasty did) but I bleed Kings so I only have the best hopes for him. He may have to go all the way around the Monopoly board starting from Go but he could wind up owning both Park Place and Boardwalk.
    Will be interesting to see him in person when he resides in LA. I'm 6'2" so most of the Kings players are about equal size...he'll dwarf me like he plays on the Lakers.
    Side note: I'm waiting on Upper Deck to let us Americans be able to order/purchase the CHL hockey card set...I want to pick up at least a couple of cases. It has tons of Kings and Byfield will be the best King card/s to get.
    2) That table cloth looks like a couple of Mayan calendars...you sure this photo isn't somewhere deep in the southwest? :D

    Maybe it's a hat he already owned and the hat/jersey set he's wearing is the set he got at the draft?

    It's a new era lid, it can't be that old.

    Cant wait to see this kid play. Isn't he like 9 months younger than Laf? I wonder how much he will close the gap by the end of the year.
    What are the chances he plays for LA this year?

    I'm sure that he means the one on the table. It's obviously used, so I imagine that it was being worn by one of the team representatives when they arrived at the house. Perhaps Quinton noticed it and suggested having it in the shot because he recognized that he was signing to be part of an organization with history behind it, not just ahead of it.

    Edit: I just realized that you probably meant New Era, as in the sporting brand. I think that I do see their logo on the side there. Even if it's a newer reproduction, though, the sentiment behind is probably the same.

    Unfortunately for Quinton that is a very high ceiling to reach. I can see Byfield potentially having a ceiling of Malkin but even then I don't know if I would say Malkin is better than Iginla. Malkin will certainly make the HoF but the only advantage I would say he has over Iggy is actually getting a cup ring.

    From the clips Ive seen, he reminds me of a hybrid between Mike Modano and Eric Staal.

    I'm not sure I understand that sentence. If you mean that he will play with the Kings because the OHL doesn't allow for contracted players to play there, that would be false AFAIK.

    Lol (assuming you are a Nucks fan) you should know all too well how good Iginla was. Malkin is not a "clear" better player like you are implying

    Highly unlikely he is as good as Iginla. But I'd say the best black player of all time is Fuhr.

    No, it’s been reported that the OHL may not allow physical contact or hitting because of Covid. I don’t think that’s good for anyone’s development. I’d prefer to see Byfield in the NHL with their trainers getting stronger and learning to be a pro.

    I agree, I think he should get a 9 game trial but id definitely be patient for the first year or 2

    Iggy ahead of the perennial Vezina finalist who won 5 cups? Hmm...
