You are correct sir! UMASS outplayed BC last night however BC's goalie was sensational. Ranger draft pick Danny Hobbs played much better than Kreider last night. Danny Hobbs gave up his body to block shots which Kreider does not do which means he will not play on a Torts team. The kid looks bored out there and does not give max effort every shift. Just so everyone understands considering all of his talent he does not even play on the top line. He is a 2nd liner on BC. Keep your expectations to a minimum please.

Mats Zuccarello is not a shot-blocker either which is probably why he does not get call ups. Torts is a stubborn guy so its his way or your watching from the stands. Probably why Wolski never played even when Feds went down with an injury.
