Everytime I hear his name and see his ranking I think of Dylan Strome 2.0 :shudder:
They're really not similar at all.
If any Strome could skate like Cozens they wouldn’t have busted.
Nothing alike, at all. Not sure how you come to thy conparison.
Is he likely a Center or winger at the NHL level?
I'm thinking center. A really good 2way center at that.
Sean Coutourier i think is a good comparison.
Cozens’ hands and speed are better than Couturier’s today.
Stats track kind of track like Matt Duchene
Both CHL players who can play wing and C
Cozens 1.39 ppg draft year
Duchene 1.38 ppg draft year
Cozens 0.93 ppg draft -1 year
Duchene 0.79 ppg draft -1 year
He's quietly overtaken Dach over the past month.
I was just about to say that, Cozens has clearly overtaken Dach for me. Tbh i also have Zegras ahead of Dach.
He's a smarter player than Dach too. I think there's less risk.
He's on pace for 99 points. Only four times since 2000 has a WHL player scored 100 points in their U18 season.
Petan, Nuge... who else?
Ehhhh, as one who has watched both play a dozen times this year (multiple live) I’d still comfortably take Dach. Don’t get fooled by the stats. Kirby has played great the last month and I’m flabbergasted by how he’s only got a meagre handful of points.
Nolan Patrick but his pace wouldn't be 100 in a 68 game schedule.
Petan, Nuge, Patrick, Weal
Coincidentally Lethbridge loaded up with Henry & Leschyshyn a month ago.
I think I'd probably take Cozens, but they are close.
a little off topic...you and I still got to revisit our conversation about Jaret Anderson Dolan. I was right.
That’s true. He was one of our better forwards defensively and on the forecheck, but he did absolutely nothing offensively. I saw that his injured wrist was still completely wrapped up, though, so that probably had a significant effect on his ability to generate offense. I can’t imagine trying to puckhandle with one hand immobilized.
Cozens plays on the second line with Elmer and Ross.
Henry and Leschyshyn play on the top line with Bellerive.
Funny...that's what I think of when I see Kirby Dach.
Dach and Strome are similar average skaters. Now it should be noted that Strome is starting to break through a bit. The skill is still there. I just think it's taking him awhile because he's a slower player in the NHL. That's a tough adjustment.
Wait what? How exactly is Cozens smarter than Dach? For my money, Cozens weakest part of his game is his IQ, whereas that is the strongest part of Dach's game...
Can anyone tell me what exactly Cozens is doing here?
This isn't an isolated incident either. I just don't get the hype for this kid. Doesn't process the game well at all. No vision. Poor puck skills.
Go watch the Hlinka games again and tell me he’s not a beast. One turnover in his end isn’t the end of the world.
