Because that is exactly what you got, do not underestimate this kid, he may be small but he has a very high skillset and was one of the most dynamic players in the draft.
Marner I don't know enough about.
Gaudreau was 21 when he entered the league and was known as Johnny Hockey in the NCAA.
Yamamoto is probably at least 3 years away from the NHL and he'll have a long ways to go before he's anywhere near Gaudreau when he arrived.

This is encouraging...

NHL general managers on Thursday were considering recommending a penalty be called when a coach loses a challenge of a goal scored off a play that may have been offside.

The GMs would propose a two-minute minor penalty for delay of game instead of losing the timeout, as the current rule stipulates.

The hope from the GMs perspective is the potential of a minor penalty would reduce the times a coach uses his challenge to initiate a review for offside.

There were 131 offside challenges this season, a 32 percent increase from last season.


“Tapping”

The GMs also discussed encouraging the officials to be more vigilant in calling slashing penalties when a player uses his stick to hit an opposing player on or near the hands. This is not a rule change, so it doesn't need further approval.

It is merely an encouragement for the officials to call the penalty more than they do now.

Campbell said the NHL Hockey Operations Department analyzed four Stanley Cup Playoff games, the Memorial Cup Final and the NCAA Frozen Four championship game and found that there were 60-110 slashes per game.


Rule Changes

The GMs were informed that the Board of Governors approved two rule changes for next season during their meeting in Las Vegas on Wednesday:

1) No timeout will be granted following an icing for the team that committed the icing infraction (Rule 87).

2) A neutral-zone faceoff will take place when a player on a team that has a power play strikes the puck with a high stick in the offensive zone (Rule 80.4).

The linesmen should call the offsides period.
No challenges. No two minute penalties.
If the linesmen get it wrong, they get it wrong.
If they get it wrong too often, replace them.
Kids play hockey all over Canada without video reviews for offsides.
The linesmen aren't NHL caliber, but the amateur refs or linesmen get the calls right 99% of the time.

But that would create more scoring.

There will still be delays even if they change the rule, just like in baseball. The time you have to wait while the coach waits for the video review team to give him the ok is maddening, there should be a time limit after the play is blown dead.

I do like the idea of the minor penalty, that will make them think twice about asking for a review.

I also love the "no timeouts" for teams that ice the puck, this has been happening with regularity this season.

Check the results from the combine. Your answer about Yamamoto’s physical conditioning is there. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/2...-top-10-drill/

He'll need to add 20lbs of conditioning before he plays in the league, he has very good skill, heart, and hockey IQ so he has a shot....

The Oilers overall size etc make him a better fit than elsewhere I think

Thank you.
He won't have a sniff from the Oilers until at least 3 years.
Back to Spokane kid and "Good Luck."

Take draftable CHL Forwards

Add their ES Goals & ES Points, then Divide by Games Played

1 * Kailer Yamamoto * 1.32
2 * Owen Tippett * 1.32
3 * Jonah Gadjovich * 1.27
4 * Nico Hischier * 1.23
5 * Nolan Patrick * 1.21
6 * Cody Glass * 1.20
7 * Nick Suzuki * 1.15
8 * Gabriel Vilardi * 1.12
9 * Mason Shaw * 1.11
10 * Jason Robertson * 1.10
11 * Kole Lind * 1.06
12 * Morgan Geekie * 1.04
13 * Aleksi Heponiemi * 1.03
14 * Nick Henry * 1.01
15 * Matthew Strome * 0.97
16 * Ivan Chekhovich * 0.97
17 * Jaret Anderson-Dolan * 0.96
18 * Lane Zablocki * 0.95
19 * Macauley Carson * 0.93
20 * Mitchell Balmas * 0.93

Standing slightly taller than Todd McLellan’s daughter, Yamamoto is certainly not of the typical coke-machine build that the Oilers have long coveted. Rather, Yamamoto is a (very) small winger with plus playmaking ability.

In his third season with the Spokane Chiefs, Yamamoto put up an impressive 99 points (42-57) in 69 GP, leading the WHL in goals, primary points, and primary points per game - even outperforming #2 overall pick Nolan Patrick offensively.

Billed as ‘this draft’s Johnny Gaudreau’, Yamamoto figures to spend one more season in the WHL barring exceptional rookie and training camps, but it’s encouraging to see the Oilers management coveting elite skill at the draft.

Yamamoto does, at first glance, appear to be undersized, but he was highly impressive at the rookie combine (4 Wingate, 2 Agility, 4 Pull-Ups) and has earned universal acclaim from scouts and NHL executives alike for ‘playing big’.

A pint-sized, yet dynamic, playmaker… small, speedy forward with excellent hockey sense and quick hands…has a strong work ethic that keeps him going…great overall quickness, first-step jump to create separation and an ability to alter speeds to create gaps…sneaky and stealth-like in finding prime scoring ice…very creative with the puck and shows off creative hands…uses his size to squeak through the tightest of holes…is a force in possession as he likes the puck on his stick, and is dangerous as a set-up man or shooter in the offensive zone…poised, clutch and aware…feisty on the forecheck, not physically, but uses his speed to force opponents into rushed plays while clogging up passing lanes with an active stick…one of those rare wingers who has the ability to affect the flow of a game like a center…a very special talent, high octane and cerebral.

Sound like someone we know?
