Can't wait to hear this tourney referenced later in the season as old grudges are dredged up.
Didn't Lander dominate this thing a couple years ago - now he's a whipping boy.
maybe it doesn't matter in the big picture, but you have to admit it would better if our rookies didn't get schooled by the rookies of 2 divisional teams and another conference rival. as of today, Jets/Flames/Nucks rookies look much better than ours. in order for that to change, ours must improve more than theirs.
you can't refute that they didn't look very good, and that it isn't disappointing.
take away from this? Nurse is
at least 5 years away
from being a 20+ minute eating top 4 D-horse (possibly 7 and don't be surprised if he is traded before then).
Klefa is probably a year away. Marincin is ahead of him.
I am no more confident in any of our forward prospects. still a crap shoot if Ewanyk, Kaira, et al can ever be players.
