Only made it to the afternoon sessions
Lots of 3 on 3 // 4 on 4 // and 3 on 3 with 2 nets on one side of the blue line.. (small hockey)
here are some random firey thoughts:
looked awkward as expected on the stickhandling drills but used his size effectively on the 4 on 4's. Shot was a bit weak. He's for sure a project.
looked so natural and comfortable. He was making it all look so effortless and easy.. . Dude's a stud and is beaming with confidence... His hands and offensive awareness are attributes that are advertised about.. but to me he looked to be one of the FASTER skaters today. Awesomeness
--Another surprisingly fast player was
, who also looked to be an offensive stand out today, his hard work contributed to the only 4 on 4 goal scored in the scrimmage-drill.. created space and shot it to a spot where mersch could easily tip it in. BUt yes, that awkward walking in mud skating style is a think of the past... he looks good out there in the skating department.
is a smooth-slick player. Almost dazzling at times with the way he was stick handling and skating...maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration but Miller is a treat to watch.
-----Was paying more attention to the offensive side of things... noticing good plays on Offensive rather than taking note on defensive plays... overall the defense was really tight... Like i said earlier.. only ONE goal was scored on the 4 on 4...maybe 3 goals on the small ice 3 on 3.. and NO goals scored on the full ice 3 on 3.
--Now i know you want to hear about
... He comes as advertised as well, a heavy player.. not so tall, but really fearless and good against the boards. He kept up just fine in all the drills. Still too soon to tell, nothing discouraging nothing outrageously ENcouraging.
--Other players i liked were:
Macdermid, Bartosak, Mersch, Pearson, Weal, Andreoff.
--Players somewhat disappointing even though it really is unfair to say so given the one hour sample size:
Forbort, Berube, Shore
To me the highlight of the day was a save that Niederberger made going post to post on a gimme one timer thru the crease.
Not sure if i'll be able to make it tomorrow but i know KP will be there.
