  1. That would be pretty tough considering he’s dead.
  2. What does the voice have to do with the age of the players? Honest question, not trying to be snarky.
  3. Those are the only Spaulding’s I know. I still want Don La Greca.
  4. I personally think it will be Jack>Luke>Quinn, but only time will tell.
  5. Yep. Especially with Quinn playing in so many.
  6. So a good night for Luke. 1 goal, 1 assist, led the team in ice time, and was player of the game for USA.
  7. The penultimate episode of Better Call Saul was fantastic. Give Rhea Seehorn all the awards.
  8. I could have sworn he already was.
  9. Apparently the Rags are making Trouba their captain. Dirty - elbow throwing - head hunting son of a bitch that he is. Seems about right.
  10. Already seeing a bunch of people online that like those. They will probably sell just like the Jersey jerseys have.
  11. Not sure why this pic is so funny to me.
  12. Well, fvck - they really put blue on a Devils jersey. Another one I won’t be getting. 0/2 with the last couple as far as I’m concerned. nvm missed the “concept” this isn’t official yet.
  13. Well, Bratt just scored 73 and MB3 offered exactly 0 sexual favors. So I guess we have the answer.
  14. He must of really wanted to play with Pavel Zacha lol.
  15. *This new guy sounds pretty encouraging to me. Notable NHL players that have worked with Naurato include Zach Werenski, Quinn Hughes, Dylan Larkin, Jacob Trouba, Jack Hughes, Kyle Connor, JT Compher and Andrew Copp. https://mgoblue.com/news/2022/8/7/brandon-naurato-named-interim-head-coach-of-ice-hockey.aspx *not technically new, as he was at Michigan last year. So at least Luke is already familiar with him.
  16. No, but I’ve given you half a dozen examples of similar top defensive prospects to Luke, that have never played a minute in the AHL (or very little in the case of Drysdale ). Idk why the coaches and GM’s are choosing to bypass the AHL for these guys, but they are. So I expect to see the same with Luke, just based off recent history. Now granted - some of the Euro guys were at least playing in professional leagues like Heiskanen and Seider, but the ones that just stayed in juniors (Byram for example) were basically playing against the same age and type of competition as the American kids that go the college route.
  17. It’s not just his brother though. Like I mentioned in my previous post - none of the top young defensive prospects (Makar, Heiskanen, Seider, Byram, Power, Drysdale, Sanderson, etc) have spent any significant time in the AHL in recent years. The trend seems to be to leave them wherever they’re currently playing (college, junior’s, Europe) until they’re ready to make the jump directly to the NHL. As MB3 stated - basically the simple answer is they’re too good for the AHL, and don’t need to ride the bus down there for an entire year.
  18. As bad as he was - Tatar did score 15 goals last year. Even if at least a handful felt like they came late in games in garbage time. Still, Tatar’s floor (15-20 goals) is Johnsson’s ceiling.
  19. But they play the same position, and a overall very similar style of game. With the instant success Quinn had in the NHL, there’s really no reason not to try and replicate the exact same trajectory for Luke. This. You don’t really see a player as talented as Luke in AHL much these days. At least not for any significant amount of time. Guys like Byram and Drysdale had a cup of coffee down there, but that’s about it. The US born players like the Hughes brothers and Jake Sanderson seem to be bypassing the AHL all together.
  20. Because it’s probably what’s best for his development? Quinn did 2 years there, and Luke probably isn’t ready for the NHL yet. He doesn’t even turn 19 until next month.
  21. Tatar I can live with. Johnsson is the one I want gone the most.
  22. Speaking of… it sounds like Prey is really good. I need to watch it this sometime this weekend.
