Crosby is only 8 weeks older than Kessel

Postby DelPen on Tue Mar 21, 2006 7:12 pm

I find that interesting. The draft cutoff is in September. Crosby was born 8/7/87 so he was in last year's draft class. Kessel was born exactly 8 weeks later on 10/2/87.

This would also mean Kessel would be 19 when the NHL season starts and I do think he will be in the NHL either for us, the Blues or the Hawks because all three need scoring in a bad way.

Kessel isn't good enough to jump straight into the NHL. He needs another year in college.

What professional team do you scout for? I'd love to know your reason why.

I don't have to be a pro scout to have an opinion.

He isn't ready and he souldn't be rushed into the NHL. Simple as.

But, why do you have this opinion? Don't you know that you have to back up your opinion? That you can't just have an opinion based on reading something. Come on, you have been here long enough. :lol: :roll:
