Just dropping by about Severson and how he has progressed astronomically. He was strictly defensive-minded last season, but this season he is becoming a very solid two-way player. You can tell that he gained a ton of confidence between last draft and this time now. He's jumping into plays offensive much more often, wicked shot, and is getting much more ice in all situations. Besides his highly improved offensive game, his decision making is becoming much better as well. He really is anchoring a solid Rocket's defensive core and his play is rubbing off onto the the other players.

Why hasn't Bell been drafted, terrible defensively or is he 'affiliated' with a team via camp invite?

Basically this,

I believe Rangers invited him to their prospect camp, but don't know what happened after that. With the season he's having, I think he will get a lot more invites from both NHL and AHL teams. He's too good to pass up.

I get all warm and tingly inside when reading severson updates. We have high hopes for him around here...

Played a full game last night. Left a short recap in the previous iteration of this thread which was just closed/capped. Michigan lost 5-1 and looked absolutely dreadful. On the brightside, Merrill wasn't on the ice for any of the goals against.

Thought he looked a bit tentative in his early shifts. Michigan got a gift of a 5 minute PP midway through the first. Merrill made some nice plays to keep the puck inside the zone. He set up Jacob Trouba for a couple of one timers. But Michigan's PP has been awful all season. Once the puck went low to the forwards, nothing would happen. Merrill pinched in and was wide open in the slot but Phil di Giuseppe's centering pass was off target and cleared the zone.

Merrill looked a bit better defensively as the game wore on. One thing I forgot was just how lanky Merrill is and how much space he can cover. There was one shift where a Bowling Green forward was entering the zone and Merrill gave him a rather large cushion. But as soon as the forward tried to make a move, Merrill effortlessly stripped him of the puck and cleared the zone.

Tried not to read too much into one game as Merrill is understandably shaking off three months of rust. Rest of the Wolverines were in disarray. Team captain and leading scorer A.J. Treais missed last night's game. Jacob Trouba was 48 hours removed from the WJC in Russia and probably was jetlagged (commentators also mentioned that Trouba missed his connecting flight and his equipment has yet to show up in Ann Arbor).

Great to hear that Severson is developing well. We may have gotten a steal with this kid.

Boucher ties tonight's Sting game at 1 with his league-leading 31st of the year.

Jack Griffin 01-09-2013 07:49 PM

Considering there was some talk of Swift Current trading Scarlett to a contender earlier in the year I thought I would mention that the WHL trade deadline is tomorrow. SC is currently in 8th so I can't see them unloading anyone. Hopefully they'll make the playoffs.

Also Owen Sound is currently playing but Gavrus is not in the lineup.

He just got there if I'm right?

A couple days ago so it's not surprising that he isn't playing but I wouldn't have been shocked if he played right away.

Wow, that's impressive for a guy not known only for offense.

DKQ 01-10-2013 12:15 AM

There's a reason I had the Islanders taking Severson at #34 in my mock draft. Kid's dynamite.

Ugh, that's awful. Interesting moral conundrum if that means no one should take a chance on him for the rest of is career.

That's incredible. I hope this is not just a hot streak, I hope that his offensive game really is developing potency, and I hope that he can get this to translate to the next level.

Jack Griffin 01-10-2013 07:10 PM

Ben Johnson has 9 pts in his last 12. Would be nice to see him finish strong, the additions of Khokhlachev and Koekkoek might help.
