Jiri Tlusty - first career hat rick
He really has rejuvenated his career in Carolina after being considered pretty much a bust. Playing with Staal and Semin certainly doesn't hurt, but give credit where credit is due.

I actually proposed a Calgary deal for him early on in the season. Had a feeling about him breaking out this year. Great player and that top line has been scary and suprisingly durable.

I logged into yahoo with the intention of dropping him from my team and nearly crapped myself...

Absolutely killer last round pick on my hockey pool :yo::yo::yo:

I have a habit of taking young former leafs in my hockey pool, it pays off surprisingly well.

Congrats to Tlusty on his 1st hat trick. Good to see some positive things happening for him.

danishh 04-03-2013 12:02 AM

meanwhile... paradis is traded...again.

Great example of why you dont unload recent first picks if they are struggling early in their careers.

Finlandia WOAT 04-03-2013 12:37 AM

Can't believe we got this guy for Paradise! He's scoring at a great clip, but he also does all the little things well- forecheck, crashing the net, screening, defense, third man high, etc. He's the perfect compliment to E. Staal and Semin, and is a big reason why they are doing so well.

And it's really weird because outside of a decent shot and slightly above average skating, Tlusty doesn't seem to bring anything above average at the NHL level. But his hockey sense is off the charts.

Thanks Burke!

this is why you don't trade former first round picks

You're right we should have kept Paradis....

He's come a long way since the photos of...nevermind

So, what exactly is a Jiri Tlusty hat-trick?

1) Post provocative pics of yourself on the Internet
2) Score hat trick a few years later

What did JR and the scouts ever see in that guy.....

urho 04-03-2013 03:11 AM

He has 17 goals now... He was good last year, now he's even better. What a find.

Fleury14 04-03-2013 06:31 AM

He has an incredibly quick release; playing with Semin and Staal, he just needs to find some open space and they'll likely find him.

Atomos2 04-03-2013 06:37 AM

Not really disappointed at all. But good for him getting a hat trick, I'm happy for him. Hope he does well in Carolina.

tarheelhockey 04-03-2013 06:58 AM

I didn't realize till just now that he vaulted into the top-10 in goal scoring. I mean, holy ****. Who saw that coming?

Tlusty is probably the hardest working player on the team. He's not a traditional power forward, but he plays like one. Almost all of those goals are a result of going to the dirty areas and making a heady play that his more talented linemates can exploit.

Proust 04-03-2013 08:11 AM

Oh the Leafs...

We've been told quite reliably he wouldn't crack their top 9.

Jerk Store 04-03-2013 09:12 AM

Yes, he got it last night...

KapG 04-03-2013 09:34 AM

Was always a stupid trade for the leafs to make. Good for him for excelling in caroljna.

Pi 04-03-2013 09:40 AM

I'm real happy for him and the Leafs management. We didn't pick Giroux but a lot teams missed out on him...Tlusty just proves that the Leafs do draft well.

Good for him.

He wasn't traded because he was a bad player.

Plus the Leafs are loaded with forwards, 4th best scoring team in the NHL.

Kulemon 04-03-2013 09:53 AM

Tlusty wouldn't make our top six so I doubt anyone's losing sleep.
