Hes been tearing it up the past two games as a rookie. Is he going to keep producing around this? Or is he a One-Season-Wonder?

If SatansDevils was still posting, he'd say yes. He usually needed a game or two to predict who was going to be the next big thing, though it took him about five games to predict that Aaron Voros was going to be the next Randy McKay and Sean Avery all rolled into one, and to declare that Lou had made a huge mistake letting Voros get away, lol.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Although, to be fair, Tarasenko has a pedigree that suggests he might actually be great, as opposed to guys with a decade of history that said they weren't very good and he's let 5 games override the 400 we had already seen them play. :lol:

Tarasenko was very good in the KHL the last 2 seasons, it won't surprise me if he ends up with a very nice rookie season and has a big career.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I know, I was just making a funny. Tarasenko was a first-rounder in 2010 for a reason.

I dunno how the Senators feel about this. They traded the Tarasenko pick to STL for Rundblad and spun him for Turris who's pretty good it turns out

Small sample size obviously, but he sure looks good.

I suspect he'll cool off and come back down to earth, but he could be the real deal.

Great, thanks a lot. Now he won't tell us what his inside sources said about everything.
