I'm glad to see McGrath getting his season off to a fine start. We're a little weak when it comes to North American prospects.

As for Kindl, I guess one assist ain't bad. I hope he gets on track this season, and manages to improve on his 14 point total from last year. Call me old fashioned, but I like my offensive defencemen to actually put something up in the way of offence.

9 points in the first 2 games? Wow.

Have him average 4.5 PPG all season, that's over 350 points right there!

Kidding.

That's awsome about McGrath. Kindl on the other hand, not so much. Maybe Kindl would do better if we picked him in the 3rd round.

Sounds good. The Wings strategy of taking someone who didn't have a great year but has showed in previous years that he can be great once again seems to be paying off. Works well since we never get a high pick anyways.

Kindl will have a fine season.

He's on pace for 40+ points, which is a solid year.

This guy was playing in the top Czech men's league at 15 and not looking out of place. That's the equivalent of a 15 year old playing in the AHL (about level with the Czech league)...that has to say something about his skill level.

Exactly, and he was playing in the OHL at the age of 17, so surely scouts couldn’t have expected him to excel last season. He was +1 today, and had 6 PIM's.

How much weaker is the OHL to the AHL, i.e. how reflective is this form?

McGrath can't go to the AHL yet...he's only 19.

A junior player may not be placed in the AHL instead of beign returned to his junior club.

I was kind of curious, what do you think McGrath's point total will be for the season? My guess would be a 100+.

Got to see the Rangers play last night. I was keeping my eyes on Kindl and McGrath just out of curiousity.

McGrath looked pretty good out there. He didn't score but I think he got an assist on the powerplay. He's patient with the puck and he has incredible bursts of speed. I was impressed most by how hard - and fast - he skated to get back and take away odd man rushes.

Kindl was okay. I'm not trying to be negative and I probably only noticed his mistakes because I was watching him as much as I could. He played a lot of minutes out there including most PP's and PK's. He has good lateral movement out there, seems like he has good skills. I did notice make one ugly pass up the middle in his own end. And he screwed up at the offensive blueline at one point too and the other team scored directly as a result. I felt like making the dreaded 'Fischer' comparison but reminded myself that this was just ONE game and that any comparison would be completely unfounded. Anyways, I hope that these guys will be in red sometime in the future.....

PS. i noticed Mcgrath wears #19

Kindl 2 assists, takes his season tally up to 3 from 4 games. McGrath is just tearing the league apart, another 4 points today.
