    He really fits the type of play that they are developing. A lot of hard point shots and deflections.

    He'd become best friends with Rasmussen pretty quickly.

    Wonder if a team will sign him to an ELC before training camp.. Let him compete for an NHL job.. If he doesn't make it, just let him develop in the AHL that year.

    For his limited minutes he sure was accurate in the WHC

    Makes sense, I feel the two go hand-in-hand. He was used more on the PP and was sheltered 5-on-5 so his pass accuracy should be up there. Still nice to see though.

    We're talking about this over on the Wings board. The rumor we heard was that not only did Hughes not participate in testing, but he also declined to be measured or weighed. Can anyone corroborate this?

    If true, that's setting off alarm bells in my head.

    Sounds like teams were not very impressed by Hughes attempt to hide his physical weaknesses. Using the World's as an excuse is a joke and I can't remember any guy using that in recent memory (the Memorial cup is a different story). Matthews, Eichel, Laine, etc all participated in the combine. This will raise some red flags.

    The Hockey News article linking to height and weight had him not weighing in or his height measured. With "worlds" in brackets.

    How the **** does participating in the WHC impact his ability to have his height/weight measured?

    Laine did?

    I may be wrong but I thought he had a leg injury and didn't do anything

    He did as much as he physically could. So, he did the bench press and the leg injury happen during the V02 Max test I'm pretty sure. So, he didn't skip out, he either got injured or re-aggravated a prior injury (believed to be the Cory Perry cheap shot).

    He did the measurements and bench press.

    probably just did not participate in anything on the test floor including h/w measurements

    Its a half ass excuse to avoid showing his weakness. Its typical for Memorial Cup guys to avoid, as they just played a pretty grueling schedule (which shows Dobson's willingness to compete), very rare for someone to avoid due to the Worlds.

    He likened it to taking an exam without studying. I buy into it. Plus he's clearly doing it so he can fall to the Hawks :P

    Yeah this is pretty weak.

    This kid has advisors telling him not to do stuff.

    His body fat percentage is the only thing he did.

    If people are trying to blame his main advisors that they should be blaming his Dad, who also works for Quinn’s agency (I should say advisor, as no contracts are signed to appease the NCAA) in player development.

    It’s odd because everyone knows he’s small so what’s the big deal? Maybe he’s smaller than he’s been listed?

    To me when he was playing against men and the championships I actually thought he looked defend size wise. Didn’t look as small as I expected. I’m disappointed he didnt participate but I’m think he’s being advised by someone who told him not too. Pretty sad.

    Hughes won’t make it past 9

    If his lack of participation in the combine has him drop a bit, either Chicago or the Rangers will take him and not look back

    I doubt any of the NHL teams really care at all. Besides the interviews, the combine is next to pointless. Every team knows Hughes is somewhere between 5’8 and 5’10, i really dont think they care as much as hfboards posters think.

    Well he’s among 8 players visiting the Sens this week for further testing. I can’t imagine they won’t measure his height.

    I agree. I don't see how this matters at all really.
