Pittsburgh Penguins ‏@penguins 40s
Guentzel's dad Mike is associate coach at Minnesota & Paul Martin is "1 of my dad's favorite players." Jake said he really looks up to Paul.

Bennett was 6'0 and had a frame he could grow into. No reason he cant be effective, but he is an undersized player obviously

pcm wrote:Jake Guentzel is a student of the game as he has the highest hockey IQ among Minnesotans eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft. The University of Nebraska-Omaha recruit demonstrated his great awareness on a nightly basis as he was able to create offense when very little time and space was given. Guentzel was the leading scorer for Sioux City, amassing 73 points in 60 contests. Guentzel was selected as the USHL forward of the week on three occasions and was honored as the USHL rookie of the year for 2012-2013 season.

Guentzel is very creative around the net as his approach is unpredictable, not tipping whether he is passing or shooting. His shot is very deceptive as he releases it from many different angles and with great accuracy. Guentzel demonstrates soft hands with an ability to receive passes cleanly and distribute with equal effectiveness. Guentzel is a good skater and possesses excellent acceleration. Guentzel’s biggest flaw is his size (5’9,150) and his inability to play a physical style game

Guentzel has the skill-set that makes him a very intriguing prospect, but he must add strength to compete at the next level. Guentzel is considered a long term project but should payoff to a franchise looking for elite talent.

Hope can pack on some pounds because 5'9 and 150 at 18 ain't really cutting it.

Shero seems to be going more for the smart players.
I'm not sure how Letang fits into that, however. :slug:

He is going to have to put on 25-30 pounds to really have a shot of surviving at the NHL level. Hopefully that doesn't destroy his skating. This is why he's a third round pick. As a point of comparison, the smallest successful player I can think of is Martin St. louis... he plays at about 5'8 or 5'9 and around 175-180.

Pens select Ryan Segalla, a left handed defenseman from Massachusetts. 6'2"/194. He will play hockey at the University of Connecticut.

When I was 18 I was 6'1" and weighed a meager 160 pounds, but grew into a 210 pound geezer which means there is still plenty of hope for Jake. :pop:

Are you at your "playing weight" (210) now? At 6'1" that's pretty impressive for someone, ummm, ahhh, well, as mature as you are. :)

I'm fighting with 5'10" 215. I'd be extremely happy at 5'10" 190.

When I was 18 I was 5'9" 128. :shock:

Looking at Bickell's deal, I would assume Dupuis is going to get PAID.

A funnier response would be to say that the whole draft should've been goaltenders!

Yeah, 210 now, but the only playing I do is a little golf, bowling and grass cutting with a lot of Xbox\PS3 on the side. Works for me. :fist:
