Monday 1/6
KHL
Dinamo Minsk lost to Medvescak 4-1
Artur Gavrus F: E, 2 Shots, 10:22 TOI
Season: 23 GP 1-2-3, -2, 8 PIM, 3.3 SH%, 1.3 SH/GP, 45.5 FO%, 11:50 TOI/GP

 

With the KHL taking an even longer break than the NHL for the Olympics, I wonder if Gavrus is considering a move so he can get some game time rather than just practice for a month. Dinamo Minsk is one of the worst teams in the KHL and only plays 4 regular season games after the Olympic break. Then they head to the Nadezhda Cup which is the tournament for KHL teams not in the playoffs. Realistically after January, he's looking at 4-7 games at best probably before his season would end in March.

He played last year for Neman Grodno in the BXL (Belarus Extraliga) but they are nearly done with their season and only play 6 games in February so a return there doesn't seem like an option. I suppose Dinamo Minsk could assign him to their MHL (major junior in Russia) affiliate, Dinamo-Shinnik, who will have 10 February games before their playoffs. Perhaps he could return to the OHL again where Oshawa has an open import spot for him and they play 13 games in February, 6 in March, and should have a decent playoff run as they are 1st in the Eastern Conference right now. I don't know if they would be interested in adding him though. If he doesn't move anywhere and his season ends in March, then he wouldn't be back in action until May for the World Hockey Championship, hosted in Minsk.

Interesting:  re:  Anthony...his numbers are now a good bit better than Steeves' (3.24 GAA, .878 save%).  Anthony also hasn't given up any goals in his last three appearances (2 in relief before his shutout).  Maybe he gets a chance to get a string of starts.

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.

I know he has his flaws in his game and is putting up huge numbers as an overager but it's certainly encouraging. I'm still not that high on him but that shot and his goals per game ratio is awesome. Over the past 2 years (age 19 + 20) in 107 games he has a .58 goals per game ratio. Regan Bartel (Kelowna's PBP announcer) has a great blog following the Rockets. I thought this tidbit was interesting the other day.

 

I had to chuckle last week when guest coach Cam Paddock watched with amazement at practice as  Myles Bell was shooting the puck. “I’ve never seen someone in junior shoot that hard, and that accurate”, Paddock said. The 30 year-old spent over 300 games with the WHL, 16 games in the NHL and hundreds of games in AHL and Europe, so he has a pretty good grasp of who has a heavy shot and who doesn’t. Paddock has seen many teammates shoot the puck, but not like Bell.

 

Interesting:  re:  Anthony...his numbers are now a good bit better than Steeves' (3.24 GAA, .878 save%).  Anthony also hasn't given up any goals in his last three appearances (2 in relief before his shutout).  Maybe he gets a chance to get a string of starts. 

Steeves has been rocky lately and Brodeur has been doing well in relief and now with the shutout so it definitely seems like this is his chance to steal the job. The Q trade deadline just passed and Gatineau tried to upgrade the goaltending but felt the price was too high. Hopefully he can keep playing well.

Watched the Harvard - Yale game, my 1st look at Kerfoot since the Devils drafted him in 2012. Definitely an offensively minded player who shifted from center to wing and back as the game progressed. Lacks size and will need to add muscle but has good vision and reads the play well. Finds open space without the puck and looks to pass first with the puck. Appeared to be a good, fast skater, especially when he hit his stride, which seems to be something he improved on since being drafted. Showed good hands and decision making in space but will need to get better along the boards and against physical D. Played on the top PP unit on the half boards which suited his skill set well. Has the offensive tools, will be interesting to see if he can put it all together over the next few years.

Hard to get updates on Miles Wood because the prep league he plays charges $150 to get stats which is ridiculous when the stats for the schools out in Minnesota are free. Apparently entering 2014 he had 17 points in 10 games. He's up to 13 games played now.

How about trying not to be contrary and forensic for the hell of it?

 

He's a friggin' 7th rounder who has a minimal shot to get into the NHL.  Everyone knows that.  If not for the Devils feeling sentimental, he never gets drafted at all.  Just kind of nice to Marty's kid doing a little something, is all, even if it's not that significant in the grand scheme. 

 

He actually just broke the franchise record for the longest scoreless streak by a goalie (Anthony had a 194 minute, 28 sec run).  The previous record had been set during the 1997-98 season. 

 

Having a "not bad" Q rookie season isn't putting him on some sort of fast track to the NHL, and I'm not suggesting as much.  His numbers were pretty bad for a bit and he wasn't getting much playing time.  Now he's enjoying a little run and getting some appearances.  Good for him.

I'm not being contrary, I'm just pointing out to anyone reading the thread that he's still a longshot to be even an AHL quality goalie.

I'm not being contrary, I'm just pointing out to anyone reading the thread that he's still a longshot to be even an AHL quality goalie.

 

I think just about everyone knows that already...if his last name isn't Brodeur and his dad isn't Marty, he's not drafted.  Actually forcing himself into getting some playing time for his Q team in his rookie year (and though he's put up some nice numbers lately, it's helped his cause greatly that Steeves hasn't been terribly good) is a nice little blurb.  If he actually ever got to the AHL and wasn't completely in over his head there, then I think he exceeded expectations pretty dramatically. 

 

As long fiesty posts updates on him, I'll comment.  Why not?  Like I said, major longshot or not, it's still fun to see what Marty's kid might do.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

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.

How about trying not to be contrary and forensic for the hell of it?

 

He's a friggin' 7th rounder who has a minimal shot to get into the NHL.  Everyone knows that.  If not for the Devils feeling sentimental, he never gets drafted at all.  Just kind of nice to Marty's kid doing a little something, is all, even if it's not that significant in the grand scheme. 

 

He actually just broke the franchise record for the longest scoreless streak by a goalie (Anthony had a 194 minute, 28 sec run).  The previous record had been set during the 1997-98 season. 

 

Having a "not bad" Q rookie season isn't putting him on some sort of fast track to the NHL, and I'm not suggesting as much.  His numbers were pretty bad for a bit and he wasn't getting much playing time.  Now he's enjoying a little run and getting some appearances.  Good for him.   

 

It is kind of funny that a "favor pick" is doing better than most legitimate 7th rounders (who are all long shots anyway as know)

 

It's kind of like winning $5 on a $2 scratch off
