Scott Laughton (skated; passed concussion test Feb. 1; injured reserve, Jan. 26)
 
Kid was solid yesterday against the pens and standing out as much as Giroux today against the Sabres.

Honestly can't believe how well he's been doing on the big stage.

He has impressed me big time too. Really happy with his play so far.

JGalt 01-20-2013 02:44 PM

If he keeps this up for the next 3 games I can't imagine him going back to junior.

SolidSnakeUS 01-20-2013 03:14 PM

I will say, when he gets his legs moving, good things happen.

feedingschennzy 01-20-2013 03:15 PM

Kids gotta stay. We can't afford to be losing valuable forwards at the moment

flyersfan187 01-20-2013 03:18 PM

Before I was hoping that he would stick and be our fourth line center when Briere comes back, but he is making a push to center Brieres line.

Hartnell/Giroux/Voracek
Briere/Laughton/Simmonds
Schenn/Couts/Read

That is a good top 9. Given Laughton doesn't let up his play.

Codith 01-20-2013 03:18 PM

If we send him back, we pretty much might as well prep for the draft, because we will definitely be a lottery team

hckyplayer8 01-20-2013 03:22 PM

Like what I have seen thus far.

Mgkibbles 01-20-2013 03:25 PM

He's one of the only forwards playing with high energy right now.

RespectTheCouts 01-20-2013 03:27 PM

He has been one of the best if not the best forward on the ice, I don't think he goes down, he stays with the big club, I'm impressed with him thus far

iamcanadian23 01-20-2013 03:29 PM

Been pleasantly surprised with Scott Laughton.
If only we had a single defensive prospect who could be contributing right about now...

If only Bourdon/Gus wasn't hurt.

YuioIklo 01-20-2013 03:39 PM

He has been really good and I want him to stay. He's special. However, it's one game. Don't consider him as the next Giroux yet. We don't know if he can play like this consistently.

He sure is a positive acquisition, though.

FLYguy3911 01-20-2013 03:50 PM

He's looked good, but I'm still sending him back after 5 games. When Briere comes back his minutes are going to be cut and I just don't want an 18 year old kid to play 7-10 minutes a game with no special teams minutes. Let him go back to Oshawa, dominate, hopefully have a nice playoff run and see if he's ready for the show full time next year.

Let's remember how awesome Sbisa looked in his trial run too and burning a year off his ELC (even if it didn't hurt us directly) wasn't the right thing to do.

scott laughton is not the key to our season...

Hes going to hit a wall, so when he slows down...remember all this praise from 2 whole games.

TheLegendkiller 01-20-2013 03:57 PM

With the quality of forwards we've drafted, you could make an unstopable line-up.




Carter - Giroux - Sharp
JVR - Richards - Gagne
Umberger - Couturier - Williams
Downey - Laughton - Upshal

SolidSnakeUS 01-20-2013 03:58 PM

We didn't draft Umberger or Upshall.

Dammit. :laugh:



EDIT:

Carter - Giroux - Sharp
JVR - Richards - Gagne
Zubrus - Couturier - Williams
Downey - Laughton - Powe

hockeyphan25 01-20-2013 04:29 PM

he's outplayed most of our forwards, that's for sure. Hopefully he keeps it up and our 2nd year guys start to show improvement.

GTopCheese 01-20-2013 04:34 PM

Robbed of his first goal by the no call hook in front of the net.

He has looked like one of our best players though.

SAINDON 01-20-2013 04:54 PM

He has been a huge bright spot. I will say I was not happy with drafting another center, but the kid has impressed.

SolidSnakeUS 01-20-2013 04:56 PM

I will say, with Laughton, I think we should be done with centers for a long while.

mrgjnv 01-20-2013 05:04 PM

His presence stood out that's for sure. I bet ya there's a few saying "who's that Laughton kid". Did impress!

That's like the Phillies saying they won't draft a shortstop for a while. You can never be too strong up the middle, and if they are skilled enough they can move to the wing like Schenn. The teams who struggle are the ones weak down the middle.

Teams with no dman prospects also struggle like us:cry:
