I like what Edmonton is doing by stock piling picks. Just never know when one of the lower round picks pan out.

I was never butthurt, I said we probably could have gotten more then said positive things about Horvat so, nice try.

You get a facepalm for posting a trade an hour after it happened.

Not a fan, but better than MG giving away picks for nothing. (eg. Derek Roy)

although MG fumbled the goalie situation, the picks are awesome so far.

PK is 6" and 206lbs.

Jordan is 5.09" and 177lbs.

The scouting reports all note, Jordan's height is a significant risk and greatly diminishes his value as a prospect.

That's a major point of consideration that PK doesn't touch on when he compares himself to Jordan..

just convert him to a 3rd 4th line hitter. 5'9 is pretty short, and it doesn't seem like he's that fleet footed.

Jordan Subban: 2013 NHL Draft Player Profile #64 | Last Word On Sports

Quote:
Jordan Subban’s game is defined by his outstanding skating ability. He has very good top end speed and excellent acceleration, and this is true of both his forwards and backwards skating. Technically speaking his stride is even better than brother PK’s, as it is not nearly as choppy, and seems to be smoother and longer. He has very good agility, edgework, pivots and turns. This allows him to be extremely mobile, and be able to cover a huge amount of ice. The great skating is especially noticeable in Belleville’s home games, played on an Olympic Sized rink. He has the ability to make quick changes in direction in all 360 degrees.

Subban has an excellent slapshot, and is great at one-timers. He also mixes in an excellent wrist shot with a good release from the point. Subban’s great agility and footwork allows him to walk the line and open up shooting and passing lanes. He also has great vision and passing ability and has done a fantastic job as the the Bulls powerplay quarterback, creating plays for himself and his teammates. The Bulls had some issues scoring goals this season, and so the offence that Subban provided on the powerplay was very much in demand. Subban is a very good stickhandler which can allow him to lead the rush, and his good skating allows him to join in as a trailer, or to make pinches and still recover in his own end. There is all the potential in the world in Jordan Subban’s offensive game.

Subban has some issues defensively, but those are almost all based on his size as he measured in at just 5’8.25″ at the NHL combine. His good mobility makes him hard to beat on the rush, and a quick stick is able to intercept passes, and pokecheck opponents. He also shows great ability to start the transition game as he is very responsible with the puck, and makes good outlet passes. He also has very good poise and the ability to skate the puck out of danger when pressured. The size is an issue though, as Subban is dominated by larger forwards, and has a really tough time winning board battles or clearing the crease. He has issues in defending against the cycle game and can get pushed around down low. While he’ll likely always have some issues with bigger forwards, he can improve this aspect of his game by bulking up and adding muscle mass, and strength.

When we talk about playing style, the comparison between Jordan Subban and PK Subban is obvious. They both have the strong skating, hard shooting, slick stickhandling, and good passing to be offensive dynamos on the blue line. Now that said Jordan isn’t as good as PK is defensively, and isn’t likely to throw the big hits that PK does. That said, PK wasn’t exactly the best defensive player when drafted in 2007 either. In terms of potential we still don’t want to set the bar to unreachable heights though, as the type of improvement that PK has shown from 2007 to today is not something that is likely to be replicated even by his brother. And Jordan’s smaller size (5’8.25″) may limit his defensive game anyway. We will peg Jordan’s ceiling as being a superb powerplay quarterback, and 2nd/3rd pairing defender. He may need to either be paired with a defensive stalwart 5 on 5 or have his minutes sheltered at the pro level.
