The real scene stealer was PK. Amazing performance.

Amongst the kids Gallagher, Dumont and Beaulieu were terrific. I personally thought Desimone showed talent and poise in during the little ice time he had.

And finally, Avtsin. He showed brief glimpses of the skill level that has some comparing him to Kovalev. A beautiful saucer pass coming out of the zone in the first period. And a near goal on a wrap around later in the game. But he also seem to lack jump and was routinely beaten to the puck in one-on-one situations. To me, he should be among the next cuts. Not that he's the least likely to eventually make the NHL--just that he's among the least ready of those out there last night...and I include Desimone, Palushaj and the like.
