Psst. We got him for free. Why are people bitching? 

Most arent bitching.  Just trying to temper expectations. Those who are bitching, well its the ones who arent happy unless they're bitching about something.

Nice to hear so much positive talk around the hockey world on this signing.  A lot of scouts really like this kid.  hes got the attitude to make it.  Not the kind of personality thatll take no for an answer.  he's going to put in the work, and he's going to press for a roster spot.

 

I love how confident he is in his defensive abilities.  Saying things like he likes to create offence, but never at the cost of compromising the defence.  He honestly sounds really well rounded.  Pretty much earned a letter on his chest everywhere he's played.  Who knows, maybe we scored a real beauty here...

Because he is too short and will never amount to an effective NHL player.

 

Am I doing it right LaBamba? @LaBamba

As short as he is, he is still like a torso taller than Subban. I'll let this one slide.

Interesting to compare to Fabbro since they came up through the same leagues/teams. Seem to have the same attributes except Fabbro puts up more points.

Highly skilled two-way defenceman that displays tremendous poise with and without the puck. Soft hands that can pass as well as let rockets fly. Excellent vision and a playmaker's knack for the game. Very aware and responsible defensively, but is not comfortable having the puck in his own end for too long and will take it upon himself to get the puck out of the defensive zone. His impact upon the game occurs at both ends of the ice as an offensive and defensive force. [EP]

I don't know much about him, but the praise he has got from respected analysts like Bob Mack is exciting.

 

Can't have too much depth and having him compete directly for a role that we kind of see Subban fighting for is a good thing. Maybe he emerges as the guy, maybe Subban does, but it's only going to make both of them better.

bench press doesn't mean anything anyways. There are better ways to test strength.

 

But yes look at Crosby 5'11 195 lbs. pretty much same as me but I may be 1/2" taller and he's most likely stronger than I am. 

You can think whatever you want, but the player weighed 190 lbs. and bench pressed 400 lbs. That's what was so impressive. And it definitely did mean something. Why don't you try pressing 400 lbs. and let us know how it goes.

Why waste so much time on here arguing silly things?

 

Last time I checked Stecher was a prospect... Maybe, just maybe stechers play translates well to the NHL game.

 

If this ends up being the case prospector JB struck gold.

 

Anywho, instead of arguing foolish things try being a constructive contributor; that way I don't have to waste my time hitting the ignore button. 

Cue bass solo.

Upper body strength doesn't mean anything. Ok. Check. Got it. Lol

 

yeah there are others that matter , but bench press matters 100%. I'd agree that pulling exercises probably matter more , but bench does tell us allot about pushing power, which means a fair amount. It can also indicate how naturally strong a players upper body is. Especially if he's a smaller guy. 

 

guna have to say "dead wrong" on this one bro

Meh. Pucks aren't that heavy. I know AB was referring to strength testing but in regards to it translating to hockey I don't think its really matters much. Look at that 18 year old flames kid. Or is he 19? It's been a while since Jim Hughson reminded me.

I'm probably (almost definitely) biased as a UND guy and I know they play different positions but, in my opinion, Troy Stecher >>> Jimmy Vesey.  You can make a strong argument that Stecher was the best player on the best team in college hockey.  Vesey is a good player that put up 46 point in 33 games in a garbage conference.  Vesey played in the ECAC and, outside of Quinnipiac, that conference is a dumpster fire.  The fact that Vesey won the Hobey Baker (college hockey's best player) is an absolute joke.  The guy wore a fishbowl for God's sake.

Dante Fabbro is a dependable two-way defenseman with high offensive upside. He plays with poise and makes mature, high-percentage decisions under pressure. In his own end, he is proactive with both his body and stick, and does everything right to interrupt passing lanes and win back possession. With the puck on his stick, he is mobile at an elite level and can direct plays like a quarterback. He possesses a hard and accurate release on his shot, that he gets off quickly and on-net. All-in-all, a complete defenseman that plays a refined game at both ends of the ice. (Curtis Joe, EP 2015) 

"Fabbro's defensive tendencies and polished offensive game have often drawn comparisons to Tyson Barrie of the Colorado Avalanche. As a slick puck mover with excellent individual skill, Fabbro could become a huge difference maker at the next level." [EP]
