I Can Make An Acronym Out Of Anything


ITYMHJSATTTTIGTOBABMPIM
I'm sure you can figure that one out.

And is this going to start becoming a regular thing granting players exceptional status?
They used to be pretty nit-picky, but now doing it 2 years in a row makes it seem like they are just going to let the best player of their age make it.

He's only 15, a lot can go wrong in 3 years before he gets drafted into the NHL (if he does at all).

That being said, if he goes 1st overall I'm thinking San Jose, Tampa Bay etc. will have tanked by then so they'll get first dibs.

Angelo Espisito can attest to that.

Parents must have been giving him growth hormone. Never heard of a 6'3 210lb 15 year old prior to the last OHL season. Maybe that's common in other places.

I was 6'4 when I was 15. Some people just have natural height. Not all people use hormones.

i went to the Allstate bantam game last night in mississauga, i was really impressed with this kid. He has future star written all over him. He's gonna be tough to play against when he matures even more. He's only getting better.

McDavid could really skate out there... (though maybe he just really matured early? who knows)

Plus that dangle on the shootout was sick, as were those passes he made to set up his line-mates.

Hope he continues in his trajectory of development, otherwise he'd still be a very solid scorer.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Watching the game last night against London.

And he looks like the next Crosby/Stamkos/Ovechkin for sure.

His hands are unreal, he is huge for his age, skates very well, doesn't back down from anything, goes to the dirty areas, can take over and dominate games, the only weakness I see right now is faceoff's which will come with strength as he matures and gets older.

He's unreal for sure, I wasn't sure what to expect but I was blown away by what I saw from him.
