Let's see if he can keep it up. He has the skills, seemingly. He's got the smarts, and he does have some grit (he's not a big hitter, but is strong on his skates and doesn't get tentative when hit or approached for a hit). He needs to be consistent, and if he can keep his intensity up and be consistent, there is a place in the NHL for him. As so many like to say, it's all up to Dom.

And don't worry about Korpokoski, yet...he's an 18 year old playing in a men's league. He's not in juniors with 15-20+ year olds, he's in a league above the AHL, although below the NHL. It's like Joe Thornton, one goal in fifty-something NHL games his first season. Should Boston have worried? If the guy doesn't improve in the league from season to season, then you worry. Being non-productive at that age in that league is not a worry.

There talking of Greg Moore.
