Watching the tournament on the stat sheet I was pretty unimpressed with Pyatt's figures, however whilst watching the game last night I noted that he was contributing an awful lot more than his numbers would suggest.

Saw it last night on the NHLN. Del Zotto was skating by everybody. Sanguinetti was invisible out there. Anisimov had a great game, but lost his edges once giving the other team a 1 on 0. Barnes has a nice wrist shot. The camera view sucked. They didn't have the score right until half way through the first. But I was just glad I was able to watch it

Watched the game last night and focused on watching how a few players were playing.

Anisemov, Messier, DelZotto, Sanguinetti, Pyatt.

Ani - Played well with speed, was ok defensively and had a shoot first mentality that I am not used to seeing from a Russian player. Seemed like he was all over the ice. From what I saw, he could knock Betts off the 4th line and take it. Ready to take Betts spot.

Messier - Was not too impressive, played with an Edge. threw some cheap shots just like his dad. Could use a lot of work on his passing, and skating although he was throwing his body around. Could use 2-3 years in Hartford to refine his skills.

DelZotto - He impressed me the most, smooth silky skaing, Good shot and passing instincts, played very good with Bobby. The most noticable thing about him was coming from behind the net with speed, he kept pushing back the forecheckers and getting it deep into the zone. He has some bad passes, not in how he passed but making the cross ice pass in his own zone with the other team there to potentailly pick them off. I think he needs just one season to be ready to go.

Sang - He has such a good overall game, but nothing jumped out and screamed at me like DelZotto, Although he was more solid on D and played a better overall game, skating wasn't as smooth as DelZotto but his passes were perfect and soft. He needs one more season in Hartford.

Pyatt - Played with spunk and speed, worked well along the corners, and had some really good scoring opportunity. I would like to see him on the big team in 2 years.
Good game to watch overall.

They finished the tournament 1-3, last game was last night, 4-2 loss to St. Louis.

Only one game was televised, and I don't know that it's available online anywhere.

Heh heh. He didn't always have that. They beat it into him in Hartford last year.

Well thanks for the reading material. Unfortunately I don't get to watch these kids play so it's all I have to go by. Anyway, it's nice to hear that Del Zotto can indeed skate. I remember after we drafted him people were saying his skating sucks for an offensive defenseman.

Del Zotto played pretty well, Pyatt impressed me too. It was kind of surprising that Clarke doesn't think Anisimov is a top 6 player.

Apparantly they didn't do their homework.

IF they meant he skates as fast with the puck as without it, they would be right, but he skated FAST!!! silky smooth too.

Bobby S, looked like a drunk pink flamingo when he skated compared to DelZotto.

He said that he doesn't think his skill set is that of a top 2 center. Says he plays more like a North American, a guy who backchecks hard and is solid in his own zone. I don't recall exactly what he said but I remember those things.

That's silly though. The kid exhibited good offensive ability in the AHL last season, his first in North America. He's still young and has plenty of development left in him. Is he going to become a guy who pots 100+ points in a season? Highly doubtful. But from the many times I've seen him, he seems to have the latent ability to produce as a second line center.

On Anisimov, I would say that as it is right now, if he follows the path he is on -- he will not become a top 2 line player.

He needs to add a element to his offensive game; which is not unusual that players do later in their career. For example, that Anisimov really develops his shots so that he can be used on the point, kind of like Malkin. Or that he is able to add like 20lbs and becomes a real PF threat down low. Or that he improves more then expected all over and just becomes a dominant player.

In the end I agrees with Clarke, but only that thats the most likely scenario for Anisimov. But I defenitly don't think its out of the question that Anisimov adds that "other" element to his game -- take Dubinsky for example, he is a good threat of the rush these days. 2-3 years ago he basically struggled to get the length of the ice in time. He got most of his offense from twisting and turning down low.
