Koekkoek should be on the team. Ekblad as well.

As much as I'd love to Athanasiou on the team, I doubt he'll be on it. He has blazing fast speed and crazy good hands, but his hockey sense and consistency are both lacking. Honestly, if he was even more consistent, I think he'd have a much better chance of being on this team. He's incredible when we gets going.

Knighs fans cant stand him and Barrie fans cant believe London let him get away beause hes been such a different player this year. I didnt even want the wings to draft him hoestly and now hes tearing up pretty good, Ičm changing my tune.
What? He's been playing on the first powerplay unit for a month now. Before that he was playing on the second unit, which still gets a fairly large amount of time.
