Ouellet appears to be the real deal. If all goes according to plan, he and Sproul should be an excellent 2nd pairing in a couple of years.

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

Sproul - Ouellet

Kindl - Smith

 

Looks good to me!

 

B-but.... what about.... my bff, DeKeyser?

And that's not even including Backman, Jensen, Marchenko and Almquist.

Ouellet looked legit tonight, and perhaps he is part of the reason Smith looked so good tonight.

Or Quincey is just holding Smith back from development. If Smith can continue playing like he did WITH Ouellet in, I say continue and use Quincey to help package a deal.

Who will want Quincey, and why?

As I mentioned in another thread, it's not Quincey's job to make Smith look good.  Quincey is playing good hockey for us right now, and he stepped up huge for us last night against a VERY good hockey team.  Last year when Quincey struggled, I didn't hear anyone saying that it was somehow Smith's job to make him look good, so where does this expectation come from?  Good on Smith for having a good game last night, but that's no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water.  As of right now he's our weakest defenseman and if he needs a rookie prospect as a partner to bring out the best in his game then he's got a very very very long way to go before we can say he's ready for a bigger role.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

The Flyers.  They're dumb.


Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Color me impressed by the kid in his debut. After knocking Thornton on his ass, it makes me want to photoshop him onto an old Valiant Comics cover from my undergrad days (but I don't have photoshop) and give him the obvious nickname:

XO Manowar.

It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

With initials like XO, does he possibly have an "A" on his jersey in the future?

With the D struggling would love to see him get a chance.
