Well now THAT is interesting. Be nice to get a better handle on what exactly we have there.  As much as one can glean from glorified pond hockey anyway.

I'm curious, how do we judge him next season. He will be in his D+2 year, but only his freshman year in collage. In contrast, We'll be looking at Tkachuck in his D+1 year as a sophomore.

So do we judge based on his Draft year or his status in the NCAA?

These situations always frustrate me.

Like any true Canuck fan you assume they're a bust automatically because they're not in the NHL

Go by draft year. Comparing a 20 year old Rathbone to an 18 year old Hughes wouldn't be fair.

Considering he was a 4th round pick, I'm willing to give the boner the benefit of the doubt.

Not at all. I'm pretty high on Rathbone. I'm just curious as to how people will judge his abilities based on his unique status.

Why do you assume the worst when I made no negative statement?

Edit: Apparently you were being sarcastic. I apologize if that was the case.

I'm not trying to say anything bad about him. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to gauge his status by asking others on this board.

Somewhere in between?

 

As much as people like to use averages, 'normals' etc to analyze things, generally speaking they tell you more about groups than individuals.

 

Judge individual players more so on their ability and forward progress.

you don't, because making judgments isn't your responsibility.

Juolevi, Tryamkin, and 7th overall along with 1 or 2 of Rathbone, Brassard, Brisebois, Sautner, Mceneny, Pouliot.  It actually looks pretty good.  I think we could actually have a pretty strong, young defence pretty soon.

You never know, he could perform better than expected. One day, he may make fans scream. I think he could be huge for us.

If he keeps his head about him he could explode!!

 

Ok...that was weird lol.
