About Pulkkinen at camp:
And Jeebus Monkey, can this man play. He made other players look downright silly at times, folks, silly with silly hats and silly walks and silly shoes silly. He plucked the puck away from his opponents, he ripped monster one-timers at the net, he made gorgeous plays, he slithered sniping shots, wicked wristers, top-shelf blasts and seeing-eye passes to teammates and he did it all while still showing a wonderful grasp of the subtleties of playing a sound defensive game, too. He didn’t cut any corners while making his opponents look like they weren’t on the same planet.
The prospect tournament will be a better barometer as to how “close” these guys are, but obviously people like Pulkkinen and Smith stand out, and in my opinion, there’s no overhyping of Pulkkinen—he’s just that good, and it’s fun to talk about a prospect with so much high-end potential.
