It's nice to see the young guys competing and improving but I still can't see this team getting the 92 -94 points to make it in.
We ended up picking Boeser with that 22nd pick, you don't like? Would you rather have Zacha or Miere?
I don't mind Boeser but I'd rather have Werenski, Rantanen or Provorov.

Strong game all round against a team that looked disinterested.

Troy Stecher is Lynden Vey on the back end. While many here are in love with the guy, he can not defend, is a lightweight on the boards and is knocked down far too easily. Offensively, he has a quick release shot, and not much else. There is no doubt he's filling the Vey void.

Trymkin is on the Bo Horvat development train. Safe, conservative defense and only the last few games is he starting to shoot from the point, nearly all wristers. It is great watching him develop.

Note Tanev/Sbisa drew the McHeyzues assignment 5 on 5. On the PK the pairing were switched around to Sbisa/Trymkin and Edler/Tanev.

This is now Bo Horvat's team.
Wow! Usually insightful comments, this time around, I think skewed by dislike for anyone under 6 feet tall.
Vey? One of us needs an eye exam. sorry :wow:

OK, to be fair, if I'm going to barb a post, I should explain myself.

Linden Vey does have remarkable skills.
He is an above average skater and has a good compliment of shots. Wrist, snap, slap and backhand. They are all there. However, he cannot read the play at all, making it impossible to read off team mates and the other way around. He skates with his head down too much of the time as well. This should have been identified at about the midget level, oh well! Turns coach's heads in practice for sure but can't play the NHL game. Dislikes the tough part of the game too.

Troy Stecher has an almost uncanny eye for the game. He reads the play and whoever he is playing with, extraordinary well. His skating is great and his shot is, well at least, scary. Certainly willing to take it.
He is being targeted by other teams but that is because other team's scouts have identified him as a sparkplug for his team. So far he has had good enough eyes open to see the hits coming and minimized them to a degree. Something I wish Chris Tanev could do. He does retaliate where ever he can and takes note of who dunnit!
He will drop em one day, I'm sure.\

Stecher will be fine, he's a rookie college player, it's always tough gif the college players to adjust to the NHL grind. He's smart and an extremely hard worker with a competitive streak, all the right tangibles, it's that bum Hutton who needs to stop reading his own headlines and get his Curtis Lazar smiley face head out of his ass.
