Really good game in Kitchener last night. Rangers played the Erie Otters.

I don't think that McDavid kid is as good as everybody says he is........He's better!

No question he has skill. But it is the rest of his game that surprised me. He was very physical, throwing about 4 big hits including one on Faksa. He was also very good defensively. He even pk'd.

They list him at 5'11" and 170lbs, but I don't believe it. He looks bigger than that to me. They did an interview with him after the first and he looked much thicker than he does in his earlier picture. I think the kid has grown a fair bit. But in any case, he does not look like a 15 year old.

Rieder had an assist and an empty net goal. But aside from the points I thought he played very well again. His line, with Marcantuoni back now, had the job of checking McDavid. I will say this about Rieder. His two way game is really under rated. I would not be surprised at all if his transition to the pros next year is not much smoother than many expect.
