I'm gaining a real appreciation for the value of 1st-round picks and 2nd-round picks.

Consider our full-time roster players under the age of 25:

  • Athanasiou - 4th round
  • Bertuzzi - 2nd
  • Cholowski - 1st
  • de la Rose - 2nd
  • Larkin - 1st
  • Mantha - 1st
  • Rasmussen - 1st

And consider the top eight names on Max Bultman's list:

  • Zadina - 1st
  • Veleno - 1st
  • Hronek - 2nd
  • Berggren - 2nd
  • McIsaac - 2nd
  • Svechnikov - 1st
  • Lindstrom - 2nd
  • Saarijarvi - 3rd

Honorable mentions: Mike Green and Andrei Vasilevsky. :turn:

And Lebda

But he has such a hard shot. He's clearly better than Ericsson and DeKeyser and Kronwall and Green. Why doesn't Ken get off his butt and trade these guys. They're clearly holding this kid back from making the roster. Get rid of the dead weight, bring up Pulk-cannon 2.0

Well he's a winger, so no, it's Nyquist, Vanek, Frk, Abdelkader and Helm that are clearly holding him back. Kids obviously going to be a stud.

Major faux pas! :lol: I thought he was a D! Oops. Just goes to show you how not of a good prospect he is.

Decent article with some direct Holland quotes and some other content obviously derived from Holland comments.

- great things said about Larkin

- nice things said about Bertuzzi

- obvious comments about Zadina and MacIssac

- interesting singling out of Lindstrom as being part of future plans

Side note: Lindstrom is currently a top-pairing defensman with Frolunda, averaging 18+ minutes a game, as a 20 year old. I feel like he goes mostly unnoticed around these parts.

Re: Lindstrom, I think it's the lack of points and flash. I haven't seen much of him, but my impression is he's projecting as a quality two-way/shutdown guy. We could certainly use a Mattias Ekholm type.

And Athanasiou blossoming as well.

McIsaac with a big night last night, 1 goal, 3 assists, 10 shots on goal in a 7-5 win.

He currently sits 3rd in the league for defensemen with 1.12 points per game. He has 37 points (10 goals, 27 assists), and 106 shots on goal in 33 games.

HUZZAH!!!

Not bad for a guy you said won't be more than a 3rd pairing guy just a few days ago.

We get it. You're right. Everyone else is wrong.

 

Stop purposely trying to stir up drama maybe?

What am I right about again?  And who else was I talking to?  I've been battling it out with KRSmith for sure, but he's the only one.  And so far he's been man enough to take it as well as he dishes it...which is why he's fun to talk to. 

Didn't realize you were so delicate.  My bad.  Feel free to ignore me though if my posts give you the vapors.
