But...players from the AJHL don't become solid hockey players and Makar shouldn't go 4th overall and...or so I was told and kept hearing

 

Man I love this kid, he is such a stud of a player and I wanted him so bad.  Certainly not complaining with our pick in that draft though either ;)

I was wrong about Makar. I didn't think he would be this good.

 

Avalanche's future sure is bright. The trade with OTT has been a part of that.

Still happy with how things worked out for us but man, Colorado has a bright future. Brighter still thanks to Ottawa being Ottawa.

Ya we got one of those,his name is ADAM GAUDETTE and he is a keeper.

As in, this fine young centerman has a great work ethic and tries to get better each and every game and soon he will show it is players of his kind that help win Championships.

Pretty stoked to see if he suits up for the Avs. I think most of CDC was keen on him I know JB was. I think if he was there we might not have Pete. However the thought of having Hughes and Makar on one team is just filthy. OOOH so many scenarios if we didn't have Pete we might have finished in the devils spot. Damn you hockey gods.

Lost in all this, is he’s leading the Minutemen to its first ever National Championship and then probably suiting up for the Avalanche for game 3.

Hughes is better :ph34r::emot-parrot:

Clearly not, or he would have won.

COL is &^@#ing stacked and I hate them for it

Still need a reliable goalie, and depth. Their pieces sure are coming together.

I thought I heard the Sportsnet guys say that he could potentially join Colorado during their series with Calgary.

I think they're similar players. Hughes is a year younger and still in the running for the trophy. Makar wasn't nominated when he was 19...

Makar and Hughes may both very well represent a new breed of defensemen in the NHL and I'm proud to say that we have one of them. ;)

Makar is a lot stronger and has a big shot. They both have wonderful skating strides, top speed.

 

Hughes maybe an edge in agility?

 

Both were considered top 5 prospects in the world not yet in the NHL just over a month ago. #1 & #2 I think? So we could be splitting hairs...
