The first two goals he scored were real beauties. He can really hammer the puck.

I didn't think he was all that good but perhaps it was just nerves for the 1st game. I didn't see the entire game though.

The NCAA guys tend to get underrated, I'd like to see Pateryn improve on moving his feet quicker but he's impressing at both ends of the ice right now and to think that he's barely played all year while others have been in game shape since oct/nov.

If St-Denis wasn't injured, i'm not sure who they would call up first, my guess is it would be Tinordi unless they wanted someone for the right side, so it would have to be either Pateryn or St-Denis since he can play RD with ease.

Stjeskal is likely playing his best hockey since he's been with the Dogs, but I can't see them sitting DeSantis or Ellis for him so I would assume that when St-Denis is back, which last I heard was going to be soon, they would go with,

Beaulieu Pateryn
Tinordi St-Denis
DeSantis Ellis

Perhaps they would consider rotating Ellis and Stejskal since he's a RFA this summer and they might want to continue getting a look at him as he is playing better and has been more physical of late which hopefully means he's getting more confident as the physical should be a big part of his game at the pro level but that hasn't really been the case from what i've seen.

Beaulieu has been up and down. At times you can see him start to take over a game as he can be all over the ice and uses his tools well (skating/speed/strength/passing) but other times he makes glarring mistakes in his own end that can leave you shaking your head. That said he's got a good mix of offensive skills to go with solid physical abilities, really hope the Habs take their time with him as I would hate to see him get rushed.

Tinordi just came back from an upper body injury, he's been a surprise for me in that he's made the transition quicker/more easier then I expected he would. His skating/mobility has also surprised me as he looks really good on his skates. I do expect to see him get in some games with the Habs next year, although I hope they don't rush him either as I would like to see him spend more time in Hamilton if possible. But he plays such a smart safe steady game and excells on the PK, so I wouldn't be shocked if he saw more time.

Ellis has been solid for the most part, he's been good at both ends of the ice, although I'd like to see him get quicker.

Regulation win is a must if there is any hope of getting into the race.
should be an interesting game, guessing Mayer will be in net, but despite winning the last 2 games with the 2 different goalies, imo neither looked very sharp in their games.

Personally I think some Hab fans are going to be disappointed with Tinordi's physical play. While he can dish out some big hits, and does so, I wouldn't say he's overly physical but perhaps that will change as he gets more experience as a pro under his belt. Right now he seems to be more focused on playing safe, smart defensive hockey and it's working.
