Guest overlords Posted January 20, 2008 Report Share Posted January 20, 2008 I don't think I would go quite that far. I think he has the makings of a Bjorn Salming (the Toronto defenceman of the 70s). He is tied with Bobby Sanguinetti for the most goals by defenceman in the OHL with 18 and has already surpassed his point total last year by 2 pts (43 now) with just over half the season played. He will have better numbers in junior than Letang who played in the QMJHL. Personally I think he is better than Letang and that his 6.5 prospect rating on Hockey Future's website is too low. This guy was tied for the lead in pts (6) by defencemen in the World Juniors this year and has just continued to excel this season. I was excited about Mathieu Carle last year but am more excited by this guy and what he will bring to organization when he finishes junior. He and Mathieu Carle (who is having a strong year in Hamilton for a rookie) are two defensive prospects no one on the Forum hardly talk about. But mark my words if they stay in the organization people will. Agreed. No one is really talking about them, but there really isn't all that much to say either Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
