    This isn't a thread to debate the merits of the NCAA vs. CIS vs. CHL. It's about Rocco Grimaldi. Any more off-topic thread hijacking on the subject will get an immediate infraction -- consider this your warning.

    He needs to go to Nashville. Don't they have several religious types on the team?

    He'd look good with Peter Mueller. Both have a lot of God-given talent.

    I really, really, really hope Nashville gets him. We need his talent, and the whole religious deal would go over amazingly with the typical nashvillian.

    Being religious =/= wrong attitude.

    It's being blown way out of proportion.

    I think a lot of teams are also scared of his strong religious ties. You never know how that will play out in a locker room.

    Personally, I'd have no issues with drafting him, but he doesn't fit with the Canucks current needs (especially considering we already have a small-ish team and our four top offensive prospects are far from being big or physical)

    He was set to be picked by the Leafs but he found out that the Toronto media has a tendency of 'crucifying' players when they're not playing well :sarcasm:

    No but being a incredibly religious (check his twitter (or if you were in Minne, his tie)) might make it a bit of a locker room issue if you are pushing an agenda like his twitter does.

    I guarantee that scared a team or two off. Size is another thing. Sure he has tons of skill but sometimes you are just too small.

    I know there are exceptions to the rule. But, they are exceptions.

    How can the mods allow people to bash this guy just because of his religion?

    When people did it about Kadri they were insta-banned....

    I did not say/mean just because he is religious, you can be religious and not be preachy or judgey, it seems that he might be that way though which affects his team.

    he didn't come off like that at all when he was interviewed at the draft, but then again that was only a 30 second interview. I think it is more likely his size that scared teams off.
