Was awesome tonight against the Pats. He's starting to come into his own and had 2 great reads which led to assists. After a slow start he has 19 points in his last 15 games. 22 pts in 27 games total
Center who is almost 6'4 and close to a ppg as a 16 year old, where do I sign?
Watched him tonight vs Kooteney post Leafs game, so I missed his first goal. In the 40 minutes I watched, Dach racked up another 2 assists.
Main reason I watched this particular game was to see how he stacked up against Krebs. In my opinion he outplayed Krebs, who I didn't find particularly noticeable outside of a rush on the PP and getting a holding and then a unsportsmanlike penalty on the PP.
Dach has some interesting tools. I'd like to see him shoot a bit more and add some explosiveness to his skating. He's still pretty young, so it can take guys who are young and tall time to add the lower and core-body strength needed to excel. He has very good vision and plays a complete game. It looks to be a really strong WHL crop for next year. I'd also expect his goals to go up, he's shooting something like 6% on the year. Last year he got 6 goals in 19 games, this year he has 5 in 38.
Dach, Cozens, Krebs, Newhook could be the best forward group out west in a long time. Going to be exciting to follow in their draft year
Also Nolan Foote and like five other top-tier prospects.
Dach put on a show tonight with 1G+3A. He'll destroy the Dub next year when he's grown into his body and added muscle.
It's pretty crazy that he was drafted at 5'9" and is now 6'4".
Kind of interesting he only has 7 goals. Looking through his past seasons he doesn't seem to be much of a goalscorer. Even at the U17's this year he only had 1 goal (but 7 points).
Any particular reason he doesn't score more?
He's a pass 1st player. He has a great shot he just needs to use it more. He might never be a big scorer like Mikey McLeod but it won't be because of his shot
So he’s basically Getzlaf but not mean (Ryan was a badass in the WHL)
Yeah that's actually who I've been comparing him to at the moment minus the meanness.
I was thinking more of a Jeff Carter comparison. That long quick stride with so much power, strong shot, and quick pass.
Jeff was always a shoot first kind of player. Getzlaf almost passes on opportunities to shoot in order to make a nice pass, like Dach.
Mikey McLeod is a big scorer? lol, what is this sarcasm?
You misread what I said. Try again
Ah, I get it now. I was like uh Mike McLeod isn't a big scorer and his shot sucks.
Dach was actually already 6'1 when he was drafted.
When Dach was drafted he reminded me of RNH during his whl days. A tall, skinnier player with great vision, soft hands and an underrated shot. His skating wasn't and still isn't the best (although it has gotten better, especially considering his added size), which is why Krebs was taken in front of him as he was the more complete package.
I wondered if he would have similar issues in building strength and adding weight as RNH has had. Those concerns do not seem to be an issue now as his frame looks quite large out on the ice.
He reminds me of Dylan Strome when I watch him. I still think Strome will carve out a successful NHL career, so this isn't to knock Dach.
So far I think Dach is the best pure playmaker in the draft. Just oozes hockey IQ. Reminds me of Barzal.
I personally think Krebs has him beat in that regard. We will see as both don't have a tonne to work with on their teams yet. Krebs has McClennon on the way though.
Krebs I agree but the Blades should have a pretty good forward group this year it's the defense that is their weakness
I think he’s a Mark Scheifele clone. At this point in time he’s pretty projectable as a future top line centre.
I still think they will be among one of the worse teams in the East Division. He will have De Le Gorgendiere, Crnkovic and Plaschewsky joining. Plus Nolan Meier in net. But I think it will be a bit of a development year for them. If those kids pan out as good players and the Blades can manage to build around them with trades for defencemen they should have a really good team in 19/20. I just don't see them being a top team this coming season. Although a lot of teams lost some really good players. Moose Jaw, Swift and Regina are all worse. PA is still rebuilding and Brandon is Brandon...
