The Malik report, wings development camp, day 1
Tomas Jurco #28:
Tomas did not have magic hands today. Maybe it was because he was wearing New York Rangers-style Warrior gloves with no backroll and one stiff piece of foam and plastic instead, and maybe he was just having an off day, but while his shot is slipperier than ice and he can finish with the best of them, he wasn’t a particularly dominant skater, he looked better but not great in terms of physical strength in board battles, his passes were solid but unspectacular and all of that YouTube stuff that seemed so endemic to his game was absent today. Maybe he’ll get back to being more creative when he’s a little more comfortable, but for today—although it’s not a bad thing to be businesslike and just go to the damn net—he just tried to score.

: Maybe the Slovaks were just “off” today. Tvrdon didn’t stand out at all. He’s still a getting-better-to-good skater with good hands, nice vision and a nice combination of a power forward’s mentality with some solid defensive responsibility, but he just didn’t look engaged.
