Sadly, he's as good as gone off this team. Him and Pacioretty will be traded for Sergei Samsonov.

Yes but none of our players go to the slot, he will really needs to learn Hab hockey. Will have to make him watch Kovalev videos.

I've been a NCAA fan for some years now. It's really about hitting and speed...you can't dislike that...

I think the NCAA is more enjoyable to watch than the CHL. Of course it depends who's playing, but on average I lean towards NCAA.

True. But it's not like he's a twig for his age. Alot of prospects are drafted at like 6'2" 180 or 6'1" 175 or something like that. They all seem to bulk up. I can't imagine a player like Tyler Myers making the NHL that soon unless he bulks up a bit. He looks like a Telephone Pole on skates.

Good overall game for the freshman. True that he doesn't go out of his way to give the big bodycheck. But I just have the feeling that it will come with more confidence. As as freshman, you're just learning the game right now and he's doing a great game at it.

So how about his potential? Are we talking powerforward?

If he's not showing any sign or real physical play, I guess he'll never be a power forward. From the sound of it, he seems to be a little bit like Jeff Carter. Tall, not really big, and not really physical, but a good offensive set. Not saying he'll ever reach that level tho...

It's tough to analyse 'cause every freshman who's big and could play that style usually don't in their first year, being intimidated a little and just trying to feel the pace of the game. Though I don't believe he'll overall by that physical, he did distribute some bodychecks and is not afraid in going where it hurts the most. Mind you, Latendresse was not that physical in junior and he had to adapt his game. When Quailer will be 210lbs or something and feel at ease with his body, chances are he'll adapt his game as well. So it's tough to say right now.

That's a good comparison, don't think he has his offensive IQ but drives the net and knows where to go to score. Let just say that it would be his highest ceiling possible. Don't think he'll reach it though. But as far as wanting to explain how tall, offensive but not physical the guy can be, it is a good comparison. Blake Wheeler could be another one.

He looked good last night. He's got good hockey sense and plays both ends of the ice. I'm sure the lop-sided score helps tint the lens a little rosey but you have to like that long stride of his, none the less, impressive game.

Hard to say at this point but I'd be surprised if he was a true PF down the road. I do think he will fill out the tall frame he has in time, I like his speed and he seems to have good hands, we'll see how much he can progress over the next couple of years. I got to admit I'm surprised at how well his team is playing right now, but it's great to see cause as long as they don't fall apart they stand a good shot at making the frozen four tourny next month.

By the sounds of it on the radio last night they have either a very good goalie or he is on a hot streak.

I've been impressed by Thiessen yesterday though we shouldn't be fooled by the number of shots. A lot were coming from the outside. But compared to the Boston College goalie....well...there are no comparisons. Thiessen will get an inviation to an NHL camp or at least a rookie camp...

They have a good goalie for sure and they play a hard working forechecking style, but still suprised the team is doing this good as 3rd overall in the NCAA is damn impressive.

Thiessen should be getting scouts attention for sure, I think he's one of the better goalies in the ncaa.
