  1. I don't recall who. So the 2nd part of your question is probably not many NHL caliber players. I would have liked to have seen him with Boqvist.
  2. I really hope we don't see this during the season. Hughes made a bunch of crazy passes, but his teammates flubbed the scoring chance. Some fans around me were expecting Hughes to score on every time he touched the puck. Since he didn't he must be a bust. Popugaev tried to go 1 on 5 too many times to my liking, but did score a sick goal. As mentioned in the above posts Boqvist was great. I was impressed with him on Wednesday and again today, I was standing by the glass and everything they have said about Hughes skating is true. He turns and changes position VERY fast!
  3. BTW it was interesting seeing an 89 on the ice not being Mogilny! It was Danny Weight.
  4. I was at the other end. I didn't see him until the final game. The players I mentioned in the other Thread drove the play. ie Smith Boquist. Seney and Anderson played well, but you would expect them to.
  5. This is the 2nd time I'm typing this. The original I can't find it, so if it is somewhere on the board i apologize. Smith is tiny. I kept thinking Rafalski with his skating and stick handling. Boquist is bigger than I thought. He impressed me today. Bastian is big but Popugaev is bigger. Hughes seemed really pleased to meet Elias. Schmid made a couple of nice saves.
  6. Always liked him even though a Flyer. As noted above, Have him ride shot gun on Hughes wing, and he's got the hands to covert Hughes passes. I also agree with comments from above he's a good front of net presence on the power play.

    Hughes or Kakko

    Didn't know about the 86. i was figuring a number combination that adds to 6. ie 33 42 51 etc.

    Sorry. I thought it was an open house with the entry draft which I will watch the first 15 minutes!

    My daughter got one of those. I didn't even though i'm a partial season ticket holder, Not that I would go anyway. I'll watch the first 15 minutes at home.

    Some observations: Schneider stones Kakko. In OT Kakko controlled the puck for a good stretch with Suter draped all over him. As mentioned above Kakko out muscled Hughes for the puck. I also would pick Hughes first but Kakko would be a fine first choice too. Too bad he'll most likely be a Ranger.

    Kakko with 2 goals (1 empty net) Big strong on skates. Obvious on ice 5 on 6 to get empty net. As I stated previously he impressed me at world juniors. He impressed me today versus men.

    Holy Crap! What a goal by Kakko!
  13. I like Caufield but i wouldn't think of trading a D prospect to get him. Yes I've seen our highly rated D prospects turn out to be not really highly rated after all. I've also seen the Russian coach cut down the cross ice passes between Hughes and Caufield on the big ice surface. Imagine what an NHL coaching staff could do on a smaller NHL ice, Yes Shero should look into it. However I think he'll find the price too steep. And as i stated above, right now I would hesitate to trade a D prospect to get him.

    Just looked at roster I only see Quinn Hughes #43 his brother. Has roster been updated to include Jack? Never mind I see he has been added. They didn't update roster
