i think AV is doing a good job with Skjei and Vesey. Giving them plenty of time to learn. He has also simplified Vesey's role...which is wise. i think the Buchnevich development has been spotty but that's also due to the injury.

I think come playoff time you really gotta consider putting him up in the top 4 and moving staal down.. just simply because of speed.. Marc staal can't keep up with the penguins.. let him get his minutes more on the pk where movement isn't as necessary

I doubt Staal could keep up with Wilks-Barre Scranton let alone Pittsburgh.

Skjei should be getting those minutes over him already.

Unless you're expecting a 60 point rookie season, which is insanely rare, Buchnevich has been coming along fine. There are a lot of small things you need to learn how to do well in the NHL to be successful and he'll need to learn them

Skating out of the zone like a mcdonagh lite. No other dman on this team besides 27 can do what he does. Played a beast of game especially in first when rest of team wasn't looking good.

he's been tremendous the past few weeks. didnt expect him to look this good until he developed for another season or two. he is improving rapidly and it helps out the situation of our future d immensely.

This summer, dump Staal, upgrade Skjei to 2LD, let Holden and Graves fight for 3LD. I'm sure Skjei will hold up well as 2LD next year.

I'm feeling very good about our left side right now and going into the future. Skjei will easily be our starting #2 LD next season.

Just gotta fix that right side. If we trade for a Lefty D, I'm gonna be bewildered. All of our focus regarding possible acquisitions should be on the Right side.

The right side of the defense definitely needs to be replenished badly.

Did not expect to see the level of confidence offensively that he's showing. Love how he takes the puck up the ice.

How about cleaned out and replaced.

McD
Skjei
Holden (replaced by Graves)

Looks nice

The only player I like on the right side is Clendening on the third pair.

I think that was a comment directed at those people who were willing to trade Miller + Skjei for Trouba earlier this year.

Did you miss the Miller part? IMO the value of a Miller/Skjei package is more than the value of Trouba alone.

Kinda crazy how all three players have taken major leaps forward this year. Trouba has been a monster and our guys have really taken off.

Miller/Skjei doesn't mean Miller plus Skjei to me. It means Miller or Skjei.
