Jeez. Kids today. When I was 18, I enjoyed making romesco garlic shrimp with grilled vegetables in a balsamic glaze.  I'm sorry. I meant "microwaved pizza rolls." Stupid autocorrect. 

Cangy sniped me as well, I'm in the Hughes jersey above you  Was awesome getting to get my hockey fix in the middle of July, thanks again to @Satans Hockey for the hookup on the tickets, you're a beau

All right guys stay on topic and let's get over the 5th grade antics. I moderated the posts, let's not progress to moderating users.
 

I can't believe they all act this way. You try to bring the kids up right, and this is how they re-pay us...

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.

Was Hughes THAT dominant?  I know it's 3v3 but were there other players driving the play that much?

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.

I can't attest too much to the other teams because the stream was focused on each of Hughes' games and I wasn't there in person, but Hughes was legitimately dominant out there, he was phenomenal. Thought Tyce Thompson drove play pretty well when he was on the ice, and Walsh generated a lot of chances too.

Boqvist and Smith I thought looked awesome together on their team, also thought McLeod was doing a great driving possession. Okhotyuk very noticeably can skate and had a nice wrist shot goal. Bastian made a nice move in tight on Schmid for a goal as well, liked to see that from him as I'd like to see his puck skills improve, he already has the power aspects of the game down.

I hope Bastian can build on the end of year flashes he had.

 

I don't want to insinuate he's going to be a 30+ goal scorer like Simmonds was/is, but if Bastian can improve his puck skills he can be kind of like a light version of what Simmonds was in his prime. Big net front guy that can bang in goals in front and take the goalie's eyes away, if he can handle the puck better in tight like he showed today on that goal against Schmid he could become a valuable complimentary piece. I'm partial to speed and skill but you can always use someone who can play the net front on the powerplay, Bastian could be that guy.

BTW it was interesting seeing an 89 on the ice not being Mogilny!  It was Danny Weight.😀

Good interview w/ him by Amanda

My brother was there. He said Hughes, Boqvist and Ty Smith (in that order) stood out. He said at times Jesper Boqvist looked like that AAA player playing in house league just for more ice time. He was toying with people.

Speak for yourself!!

No, actually, you can speak for me too. 

I would have considered going if my daughter was available, I think she would've enjoyed it. But I don't think I would have gone, while I have managed to go 7 months taking only one day off, I still have all of my vacation time planned out between now and the end of the year. 

If my work wasn’t completely insane at the moment, I absolutely would’ve taken my daughter to this...we would’ve had a blast.  I really start to miss hockey right around this time...and there’s definitely some things to get excited about.  Would’ve loved to get a look at Hughes, Boqvist, and Smith.  But just seeing Devils hockey in any form probably would’ve made me jones that much harder for it.  And admittedly I still want to enjoy all that summer offers first...it goes by fast enough as it is.

There was a 93 too (forget who)...that will always be Gilmour to me, even though he came and went pretty damned quick.
