What kind of ceiling does Rykov have?  I've heard nothing but good things about him?

I'm not really sure honestly, maybe he could be a similar player to Nikita Zaitsev in Toronto though. Similar development paths so far.

Also with McLeod's speed, the sky's the limit with that kid. This run of production he is in has me really excited.

0 points in 12 WJC games for Russia vs 10 points in 14 games

2 points in 39 games on a weak KHL team vs 9 points in 47 games on maybe the best KHL team in the last 20 years.

Yegor Rykov has much higher potential than Zaitsev at the same age. Closer to Orlov IMO.

Orlov is a great player so if Rykov turned into that for us, we'd all be really happy. 

Whenever I get down on the team lately I just come to this thread and remember to trust the process...

Agreed.  Shero knows what he's doing, and so far he's pressed the right buttons.  I know it's deemed as a "weak" draft, but having 11 picks is a great asset management by him.  And it's only considered "weak" because it's not that strong at the top.  I think there will still be good players, and think Suzuki can be a real sleeper pick.

It's been a good start to the OHL playoffs for our guys.  On Thursday night, Blake Speers had 1 G, 1 A and a +2 in a 5-2 win.  He was 2nd star of the game.

Last night, Mississauga won 6-2 over Ottawa.   Bastian was second star with 1 G, 2 A and a +3.  McLeod had the first goal of the game and added an assist on an empty netter at the end.

any rumblings about signing Kerfoot? I believe he becomes a free agent in August.

I read a tweet from Dreger a week or two ago and, in trying to find the exact quote, found this article which is just speculation about him possibly wanting to sign in Vancouver... No reason to "worry" yet - hopefully he signs at the end of the season like Wood/Santini last year.

Also just read this on All About the Jersey: 

"Speaking of draft picks, it’s becoming increasingly unknown as to whether Alex Kerfoot will sign with the Devils following the conclusion of his college career. He recently gave an interview to a Vancouver radio station, in which he described it as being a dream to play for the Canucks, but mentioning that his main priority is New Jersey."

He can't sign until his season is over; so while Harvard is still playing he can't sign anywhere. Once his season is done the Devils are the only team that can sign him until Aug 15, I believe.

Should Shero make a push to sign Joey Anderson once the NCAA season is over? As a freshman, he's third in points on arguably the best team in college.  It seems like he's at least ready for the AHL.

If he goes to Vancouver, he becomes as big of a tool as Vesey and Hayes

No rush on signing Anderson.  19 year olds don't typically do great in the AHL and it's not like Anderson is crushing the NCAA.
