  1. I don't think players ever go from being below average skaters to top end, but players can work on their mechanics to get to the point where a bad skater can become NHL average.
  2. If he keeps going like this we won't be able to pick him at second!
  3. In other news it's hard supporting GB at these tournaments.
  4. Yeah it was a competitive series , and Rochester have some great players Krebs, Peterka and Raustolinen should all be vying for a spot in the NHL next year without question. I think the nature of the defeat last night was very Devilesque. Blowing a lead in the third period, so its a familiar feeling. I think Brylin will land wherever most of our Russians are located. If Shak and Nikita ate both still in Utica then that's where he will be. Holtz needs to come into camp with some improvements to his skating. I can't imagine the development team are not already drawing him up a programme for the summer.
  5. Disappointing end to the season. Holtz needs to get some rest this summer and come back ready. His performance really slumped towards the the end of the season. 1 goal and 2 assists in 5 games is not the level he needs to be operating at in the AHL. Hoping it's because he has played a lot of hockey and it was late season fatigue. I suppose at the end of the day it was nice to have some meaningful hockey at the end of an AHL season. The River Rats were the last team to even get to an elimination game back in 1997. Will be interesting to see what the roster looks like next season. I would imagine some players will step up and make the jump. Also players like Greer are UFA so there could be quite a lot of turnover.
  6. He has so many qualities that would fit well with this team.
  7. Agreed, but this guy isn't saying "oh he reminds me of such and such" he is saying statistically this player is on par with this player. And as far as I can tell it does not account for the quality of the team mates that the individual is playing with. So Luke could go back to Michigan next year, put up the same points and regress on this model, yet have picked up harder minutes and played on what is looking like a weaker team.
  8. I think his work is good and it gives a nice visual , but it will always suffer from having to compare performance across different leagues and the level of competition at the time in that league.
  9. Couple of Devils getting a good look at Slafkovski tonight.
  10. Hahaha , amazing. This phone at times just goes off the wall. Yeah, sorry , was probably funnier in my head.
  11. Getting back to goalies Bill Guerin said today that they are looking to keep both Fleury and Talbot as their tandem for next year. They also donged Jesper Wallstedt to his ECL. Obviously it's not a done deal, but that could be one more name off the UFA market in the summer. Also ready that Toronto are trying to sort out their roster for next year and have made some intial offers to their UFA's. One of which was Jack Campbell. Rumour has it that Dubas offered him $2.75 million a year, which is a massive low ball. This could potentially push him towards the exit. However in his exit interview he has said his priority is remaining with the Leafs.
  12. To be fair the Franchise he was referring to was the Binghamton Devils.
  13. He is 2022 draft prospect Brad Lambert's dad. So if the Islanders draft Brad it could be Lane shutting down the youth centre.
  14. I think it's the series that everyone wanted. Edit: apart from Kings and Stars fans.
  15. They have been really inconsistent for a while now. Their run in was messed up by all the call ups and they just didn't come into the playoffs with any form of momentum. I also don't think the layoff with the bye through the first round did them any favours. Got to say from some of the younger guys Instagram posts it has looked like they are already on holiday!! Not saying players cant chill out and enjoy life, but they were in the middle of a playoff series.
  16. Could fill a role similar to Vukojevic and spend time between Adirondack and Utica in spells.
  17. Oh yeah well if it's for things that stand no chance of happening I am sending it to Edmonton for McDavid and Draisaitl.
