Would you mind giving me a run down of the teams best players/who to watch for?
For sure. I just work all the home games so I have sort-of an invested interest.
But Cody Sylvester, the captain and over-ager, was definitely the star player with 90 points in 68 GP.
Spencer Humphries is a key player on the back-end. Fights, plays a physical game, all the while contributing offensively.
Brooks Macek is the third and final overage player, with 80 points in 70 GP.
Others to watch are the Rookie Jake Virtanen, already ranked in the top 20 of the 2014 draft (? maybe it's 2015?)
And Pavlo Padakin. I have a man crush on the guy. From the old country (Ukraine) and probably the best penalty killer I have ever seen, I actually think that the Flames should take him if he is there in the 4th, 5th round, maybe even 3rd. And the guy is a super pest. The last three games at home, he had the entire opposing teams after him before the first period buzzer. Also, after he buries, he gives the tender a glove-bump, then skates over centre ice and salutes. What a beauty.
Obviously, Dreidger will have to keep up his stellar play between the pipes.
I am in class right now, but will give an even more in depth summary later.
