He doesn’t stand out. He’s not an elite level talent, maybe Bo Horvat level at best

HF Rags fans:
Lafreniere was pegged by everyone as being an Eichel/AM34 talent. He’s looked like one of the worst 1st overalls of all time since he’s stepped in the league. Daigle, Yakupov, and Stefan have all outplayed him. He needs to wake up and at this point I doubt he actually does with us
Would trade Lafreniere or Kakko for JT Miller at this point
You can only win so many games in the NHL playing as poorly as the Rangers have. They are lucky to have 6 wins with the way they have played as a team. Something has to change with this line up. They are what 10 games in and nothing is changing in terms of a team learning a new system or cohesiveness
Apparently from what I am reading they are all over Gallant for his line combos and Panarin refuses to play with Kakko or Lafrenyay.

Maybe Gallant wasn't such a good idea lol

I was actually impressed with some of Kakko’s game last night. You can see there is something there, can he put it together remains to be seen. But the kid I was most impressed with last night was K’Andre Miller, very solid player. Lafrenierre is a hardcore disappointment, I expected more from him, now you just hope he can be a Bo Horvat type. He’s definitely not 1st overall worthy, far from it. I’m picking Drysdale, Stutzle and Raymond ahead of him. Keep an eye on Dawson Mercer, he’s been impressive with the Devils. Mercer was always a wildcard.

Careful Cuz… the hindsighters don’t like being wrong. They like that even less than bitching about every real time decision made.

The stink pig has about 50 royal pine/vanillaroma trees dangling from the mirror. It smells saucy in there

Tkachuk Is as much a salary dump as he is a player.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Matthew is as over-rated as Brady is under-rated. If Eichel returns to form, that would be a steal for Calgary.

Why the fuck would Boston native Eichel be happy to play in Cowtown?

Dumbass rumour

The Vegas rumour makes more sense

I really hope that Lafrenierre isn’t the next coming of Nolan Patrick
