:[QUOTE]'sfunny SanDog, but I could see it go either way. What it comes down to, I think, is the way you view the one quality everyone who loves Marchand has right on the tip of their tongues - he finds another gear in big games. Question is, what's he doing with that spare gear in games against Winnipeg in January? If he can get to that level by preparing like a pro, he may prove you right. Posted by Bookboy007[/QUOTE]
"Explosive skater; Erupts out of the blocks and puts defenders on their heels when he attacks
them with his high-end speed. Also shifty with his east-west movement
, but _______'s greatest strength is his ability to come right at the teeth of a defense and still be able to get himself into position to generate scoring chances
. Good puckhandler; handles the biscuit at top speed
. Goes to the net with his stick on the ice, looking to cash in. Solid shooter; not overpowering, but is able to get rid of it quickly and finish off chances in close
. Quick hands on the deke make him lethal
when he brings the puck in alone at full gallop. Defensively responsible, but clearly an offensive-minded player
Some of the things that I think can't be taught to a youthful hockey player as I think they are born with, above, innate skill
no matter how many power skating schools or stick handling drills a kid is put through.
Marchand does some
of the above really well
that is where I think he becomes a 30 goal scorer. Couture does allot
of the above very well
which is why I think he will become a perennial 40+ goal scorer every year. There is the seperation...
Oh by the way in the parentheses above is a scouting report about my favorite Bruins prospect and why I'm so high on him.
