I can only imagine what a player Ristolainen is going to become at 27-28 years old. There really is no ceiling to his game.

I've said this before, he is the type of player I want as captain. I love his mentality.

It's a function of our ES offense being trash and Risto being one of the four horsemen of the first unit.

This would be the part where I comment that the guy with the ludicrous goal-share is being played like Adam Foote, but apparently my frequency with that take is annoying the general public.

It seems to me he lost a step. Is it because he obviously bulked up? If so, do you think he can regain his quickness?

Can anyone remind me when Risto had the 20 game stretch where he was really good? I feel like watching some of them but don't want to waste my time by getting it wrong

Right up until the weekend where he followed up a 35 minute night with over 30 again the next night. We all called that as the point he had fully broken, and it was true.

can someone tell me why it's a shooting gallery (for the other team)with him on the ice? he passes the eye test and scores like a 1D but the nerds don't like him because of his shot metrics.

personally, I believe the kid is morphing into a 1D but the advanced stats are somewhat of a red flag as well.

His head coaches at the NHL level have been Ted Nolan and Dan Bylsma, and Risto is the kind of player that does whatever the coach tells him to do. Bylsma told him to limit shots from up close and well, he did that. He led the Sabres defense in SCF% even though he was last in CF%, which basically embodies Dan Bylsma's defensive philosophy while he was with the Sabres.

That said, he still has a lot of improving to do on the defensive end if he wants to be a high-end two-way defenseman. His offensive skillset is already elite though.

Byslma used him like he was Ryan Suter or Drew Doughty cause he is a bad coach. The Sabres system was a joke which contributes to some of those numbers.

When you are on the ice for nearly half the game on probably the worst defense in the league it's expected to give up a ton of shots. He's absolutely a #1D though, because for one, if the Corsi nerds type of players (the ones that are graded on spreadsheet analysis instead of actually watching them play) were put in Ristos situation they wouldn't come close to doing a good a job as Rasmus does and secondly, once Ristolainen gets some help on the blue line and his minutes cut down a tad he'll look much much better. Ristolainen is the one Sabres defenseman who actually deserves his ice time/role. I could care less what some spread sheet warrior thinks or says about him when it's pretty clear to whoever actually watches him play that he's one of the best young dmen in the game and trending towards the top of the league. He has all the tools to be a top 5/10 dman.
