Greg Chase had no points tonight, but had one of the better showings in all my viewings (I have approximately 12 viewings of Chase). His vision and passing ability are nothing short of exceptional at the junior level, despite not converting, numerous times tonight he set up a line mate with a gorgeous tape to tape pass. His board play down low was good tonight against a very sizeable Blazers squad. He was hard on the forecheck and pressured the D into making mistakes. In his own zone Chase rarely looked out of place and in one instance broke up a potential goal on a Blazers 2 on 1.The best part of Chases game tonight was his pest game, he was running his mouth all game, at one point the broadcast's mic picked up him chewing out the ref after a non call. Later in the game Chase goated Blazers forward Joe Kornelson into a roughing minor, Chase was running his mouth, Kornelson took acceptation dropped his gloves and jumped Chase, Chase turtles the refs jumped in and broke things up giving Kornelson the only penalty, the camera zoomed in on Chase on the bench with a giant smile on his face. Stuff like that drives opponents crazy. Along with running his mouth all game Chase was crashing the net on every play and starting scrums everywhere. Some small complaints about Chase would be that he tends to pass up shots in order to feed his teammates, he doesn't posses an overly potent shot, and can sometimes take untimely penalties. Small complaints IMO. The entire game the broadcast crew were raving about Chase and were as stunned as most of us are that we got him in the 7th round. I know it's early but I can't help but feel Chase was an exceptional pick by the Oil and I think if I had to make the choice between our 2nd rounder Marco Roy and 7th rounder Chase, I would have to say I would take Chase.
Ok that was a lot but I'm just very impressed.
