That goal looked like it involved quite a bit of instinct and "just going for it." Love to see that in this kind of prospect because usually they are so measured and conservative on D, especially these big tall guys.
Never saw Pietrangelo in his draft year, but is that something he would go for/pull off? What about Hamilton?
Jones literally took off from behind his own goal line the second he saw the puck moving in a forward direction out of that scrum, looks like something Murphy or Ellis would do, not a giant. I know it's just one play but looks very promising, I hope that's something he's doing a few times a game at least. I see guys like Reinhart, and have seen guys like Cowen who are similar sizes in the Dub, they will/would rarely ever do stuff like that. They play so conservative. Don't think big Swedish guys like Larsson/Hedman would do it too often either, correct me if I'm wrong though. Adds a whole other dimension which is extremely exciting.
