No worries - I've just happened to be free when the games were on recently and I'm happy to share my observations.
As to questions on Olver and Jessiman, I would say both looked excellent tonight. Olver is fast, skilled and has great hockey sense. If he was bigger he'd have been a sure fire first rounder. His big challenge will be adding meat to his bones.
Jessiman was kinda the inspiration for my skating bear avatar. At times he can dominate on the puck like Jags/Hossa and he's a pretty good skater for a big fella - his game has all the subtlety of a freight train (which is not necessarily a bad thing). Like a young bear though (okay maybe I'm stretching the metaphor a bit here), there are times when his big body gets in its own way and he loses control. But he's definitely picking up his game and it looks like he is now a top 6 forward in HFD. I continue to have high hopes that he'll be a valuable NHL player some day.
