Ok, as I read with interest this post, I have to comment. Puckmummy, you quote the points of the two players in the WHL, edge to Weal, fair ball. However, as a hockey fan and not a Pats or Warriors fan, that doesnt fly! They are simply two different types of players. Weal is a small offense driven forward and Howden is a big two way centre. You ask how Howden did in the World Juniors? I ask, how did WEAL do in the World Juniors? Oh ya, he didnt make the team, actually correct that, he wasnt even invited to the tryout camp! Tell you what, re-visit this arguement in 10 years and tell me who has had a better career assuming they both stay healthy. Pretty sure it wont even be an argument.
Congrats Pat fans, it has to be good to actually make the playoffs again. It is pretty brutal that the coach didnt shake hands though.
Beach is shift disturber you hate to play against but love on your team. However, in his case, he has talent as a hockey player but seems like a head case as an individual. He will likely end up not reaching potential just like his brother.
