In Topic: 2015–16 Prospect Thread

I was up in Boston this weekend and I was really impressed with Wood and Santini. SS scored the opening goal on Friday night and had another big hit Sunday. MW was the fastest skater on the ice for either team. With that being said, both games very very chippy and there were a lot of penalties so I didn't get a great idea of how these guys are 5v5. The embellishment call on MW was a good one but he was really moving his feet for a potential breakaway when he was stick-checked up high (and then fell over like he was tripped). The BC team is in the middle of some historic defense (6 shutouts in their last 7 games), it's beyond impressive - it's actually mind blowing.


Both guys are impact players right now.

You only have to get 16 seconds into this one before you get an idea of how Santini plays. I have not seen him live yet, but I will this weekend.

I haven't gone back to read the first few pages of this thread, so I apologize if this was already brought up. #44 might be the worst D man in the NHL. His no look, backhand play up the boards half way through the third is something I would bench a 16 year old for; totally inexcusable and of course, the puck ends up in NJ's net 5 seconds later. I know he has a hell of a shot, but I'm about done with him. Same mistakes over and over.


Congrats to the rest of the team for a great comeback, keep it rolling.

In Topic: Columbus Beat Writer Says Devils Interested in Atkinson, CBJ wants Lar

CBJ has more than enough to give back if they really want Lars. I agree with most of the board that he's only available in a steal scenario, but still, he's available. Honestly, Atkinson and a 1st might be enough, but I can't see why Columbus would ever make that deal.

Technically, Daniel, that's the passive voice, not passive tense. But you're exactly right; people who write for a living can find subtle ways of making headlines sounds a certain way without actually providing any substantial information. The fact that he uses an impersonal 3rd person (ie, "it is believed" rather than "I believe") accomplishes the same thing.


Not trying to be a grammar nazi here, but I thought your point was so good, I couldn't resist cleaning it up for you :)
