I only watched the first period of the game since it was hard to watch Michigan since they were all out of sorts. I wouldn't want to judge Merrill in his first game back but it was great to see him on the first pair and playing on the top PP unit. It was obvious he was rusty but he still showed flashes of being the player he can be.

I wrote this over at HF:

I watched most of Merrill's third period. Michigan lost 5-1, so I guess everyone played pretty crappy, but Merrill in the 3rd period should of had 2 assists.

Merrill had a faux-shot pass that froze the goalie and gave his teammate a wide open net to shovel the puck into but the guy couldn't get a handle on the puck. Merrill also found a seam during a PP that created a 2 on 0 for Michigan from the blue line in, they screwed up their pass and didn't really get a shot off.

Overall, for the only 1 period I saw, he skated really nicely, had good positioning in the defensive zone, and seemed to see the ice well on both sides of the puck.

That period by Michigan was horrible though. Their opponents were playing good systematic, disciplined hockey while Michigan looked like it had no system of game plan whatsoever, just everyone trying to make the best 1 on 1 play they can at every moment. Maybe things looked different when it was 0-0 as compared to 5-1.

Does merril look better than Trouba?

I'd love to hear someone like Jas0n MacIsaac or any of the other people here that get to follow prospects chime in on this. I've only seen Merrill play a handful of games last year between the WJC and Michigan and just Trouba in the most recent WJC. I don't feel qualified to compare them based on viewings that limited but I'd say both their ceilings are really high with Trouba more likely to get there.

damn i really don't want minnesota to become "too good" i want to see Zach and Sutter fail miserably... but truth is they'll have a pretty good team in the next few years with all their top prospects coming in... granlund, coyle, trouba, philips, larsson, Brodin... adding to the young core they have parise, koivu, setogochi, cullen...etc
