5 mind-blowing stats from potential first-rounders

Shove your analytics.
...seems pretty far down the list on most of those stats. Not saying he shouldn't be a Top 3 pick this year, but if you go off stats or analytics, there's much better players out there. So either the scouts are FOS, or analytics are FOS. I say the dorks who've hopped the number wagon train are FOS.
The more I read....
...I feel Draisaitl is the pick. Mainly due to the fact, that he put up very similar numbers to the Sams and had an awful team. But also considering his size, hockey IQ, his 200 foot game, etc. But thats me. Either way, I'll take him or either Sam
And why is this "mind blowing"?
I wish I could mail my work in, like this piece. Must have taken 20 minutes to write. Means nothing. And Pegula s**ks.
Here are five REAL facts that SHOULD blow your mind.
1.) NONE of the eligible draftees has been recognized as anywhere near the talent level of the first pick last year (Nathan MacKinnon) or either of the top two projected for next season (Conner McDavid and Jack Eichel respectively). 2.) Eckblad is the only player that most everyone agrees has the ability and maturity to realistically start in the NHL this year and that is a bit of a stretch. 3.) Draisaitl is a step slow by nearly all accounts and does not project as a top three pick. 4.) There are three players in the draft tomorrow night that are considered very good and should be able to contribute in the NHL in a couple of years. 5.) Your stats are the single most moronic, disconnected from reality and truly useless statistics I have ever EVER made the mistake of reading. You would have scored more points had you simply said "all these guys play hockey." THAT is how useless the information you spewed out is worth.
that last stat
Maybe I'm missing something but what is the last stat exactly? What you wrote doesn't seem to make sense.
Sam Reinhart vs Leon Draisaitl
It seems everywhere I see Sam Reinhart I see Leon Draisaitl. I am beginning to like Draisaitl and he is bigger than Sam. Would not mind Sabres selecting him. I doubt the drop-off between he and Reinhart would be that great.
Smart and accurate analogy
Here is a smart and accurate analogy of what these players will be. Reinhart projects to be Patrice Bergeron. Bennett projects to be Daniel Briere or Marty St Louis. Draisaitl projects to be Thomas Vanek. Who would you rather have? Give me Bergeron, Briere or St. Louis everyday of the week over Thomas Vanek. I don't want Draisaitl at all. I think he is a farce and his statas are a farce. He is a clone of Thomas Vanek through and through. Vanek was not and is not a marquee player. The other 3 mentioned are and were. Vanek was never good enough to help the Sabres win anything in a featured role. It's time that the Buffalo Sabres got some marquee players not another Thomas Vanek. It's pretty simple what the Sabres need to do tomorrow night...draft Reinhart and let some other foolish team draft their Thomas Vanek in Draisaitl.
analytics my a ss
Analytics are for people like Schopp. They watch every game, but have no idea what's going on. They are reasonably intelligent, but haven't an ounce of athleticism. They want to participate somehow, so they do what they are good at. They crunch numbers. They are basically nerds who like the sports they don't understand. Schopp, Coller, Aaron Schatz to name a few. Remember what Tim Murray said about analytics during his first interview with Buffalo. "they are basically for people who don't understand the game. I immediately thought of Schopp.
SHOVE YOUR STATS!
There is no stat measuring heart!!! SAM BENNETT FOR PREZ!
That kids got heart!
Thank God the draft is tonight, the well is official dry. Too much speculation of 17/18 yr olds. Poorly written "article", also.
WGR Fan Poll Today Most likely to get traded
Can't vote. None of them are on my list to be traded. Keep them. My list includes Ennis, Weber, Ruhwedel, Flynn, and Ellis. Trade them all!!!
We can do without Schopp, Jeremy, Kevin, and Peters. All are idiots. SHOW THEM THE DOOR!!!
Plenty of trade rumors and NOT ONE WITH BUFFALO. Sounds familiar and Regeir is no longer here. It's business as usual. What a Joke!
