Former scout praises Slafkovský: He is better than Jágr in this – NHL – Hockey – Sport

He knows hockey, he worked as a scout for Montreal for two seasons. This is also why Grant McCagg is close to the Canadiens and follows their game closely.

McCagg likes to share hockey impressions with fans on the social network and does not hide the fact that he is one of Juraj Slafkovski’s big fans.

He predicted the first place in the draft for the 18-year-old Košičan back in the spring, and he also got a tip when he tipped Shana Wright during the selection of talents outside the top three.

He recently admired Slafkovski’s game in the Montreal Canadiens game against the Columbus Blue Jackets (4:6). “The only 18-year-old player I remember with comparable puck protection to Slafkovský was Lindros. Even Jagr wasn’t that physically dominant until his 20s,” McCagg wrote on Twitter, adding a clip of Slafkovski’s fights:

According to him, everything points to the fact that when Slafkovski is ready, he will be an ideal teammate for the elite players of the first attack – captain Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.

The expert also drew attention to the fact that the Slovak draft unit got on the ice at the same time as Suzuki for about one minute. “And during that magical time, Slafkovský recorded his only assist to date,” McCagg stated.

According to him, it cannot be expected that Slafkovský will present himself in the Canadiens’ elite formation in the near future. However, he claims that by remaining in the last – fourth place, Montreal is going against itself.

“Slaf is seventh on the team in points per 60 minutes and fifth in goals per 60 minutes. That is not the productivity of a fourth line player. And besides, hockey players don’t score in the second and third,” added the expert.
