You know he's just trying to get some **** started about Timmins not being able to draft first rounders and the Habs ruined him and he'll never reach his true potential.
Patches has the hands and smarts to be a first liner but I like having him play with Metro and Moen to learn the game first. All he needs is confidence, I'll think he'll get more of it in the NHL than going back to the minors.
He had a great game last night, hope that line stays together a bit longer.
I don't think a Mike McPhee comparison is that far off...I remember McPhee, he was a pretty good player for the Habs. I think MaxP might have a bit more upside, but I don't think he'll ever be a legit 1st liner in the NHL.
