As was once said: he’s a blend of Steve Armitage (hard core rinser) and Constable Ann Drennan (hard core sex kitten).

I think the scouting combine on June 1 will really help cement the #10 pick, see who is out of shape and who takes working out seriously.
And shows the all-important "attitude" that Benning looks for when he drafts.

Is this thing really of any use? Or is it just the NHL trying to mimic the NFL?
Who was it that couldn't do a single pullup? Was that Willie Nylander?

With the way NFL prospects train for the combine at the expense of any other form of training, I'm not sure there is much use for the combine.
It was Mittelstadt *edit oh topper said it.
https://www.cbssports.com/nhl/news/look ... e-pull-up/

It's just a good test on IQ and endurance/strength ability and a chance to see how serious some of these guys take their workout regime. Can see who is more NHL ready or needs 2-4 years of developing. Or who doesn't give a shit and is just getting by on their skill.

Just another tool to help NHL teams and prospects to prove what they are made out of and capable of & potential.

Ya I think that’s the key. It’s just another tool. I doubt it will change much in the top 2-4 selected, depending upon any given draft year, but may impact the next tier. It will also help in rounds 2-3 sort through some detail. Some GMs it’s all about attitude and character in the interviews more so than the physical stuff.

Raphael Lavoie has to be climbing the ranks. Big hard skating, hard nosed right shot who plays both centre and wing. Set the Q playoffs on fire. 6ft 4 200 lbs... he ain’t razor thin

Ya, some people think it's harsh. Too much pressure on kids but what are high school finals? LOL
I think the players dread the physicals more then the chats, (these days), but it is a tool and totally essential.
Not all teams have the same needs and the BPA theory is really up to the team, (GM), after the top few picks, (depending on the quality of
the draft year). Example; Yakapov year, LOL.
It's important too for teams to get a read on time frame for player's potential NHL readiness.

Dubois was a kid that totally impressed Columbus his draft year. Too bad he didn't have the flu that day.

Bennett was the pull-up king
