Well, I think he has a lot of potential but currently still shows all the signs of an AHL player.

He's pretty agressive, has had some pretty good hits. Other than that, it's still too soon to tell. With a game like last night's, you cant really judge. I mean, everyone sucked booty, so I cant really single him out, lol.

Agreed, it's too soon to tell. He hasn't played a lot of minutes yet (last night he played 11:27) I think the assumption that some of us had, in which he could just slide right into the top-six was a bit too optimistic.

He did as well as a new player though, which is encouraging. I'm giving him a few practices and games to get him up to speed before I assess him on the same metric as the guys who know all of their teammates names.

Yea it's only his like 8th game in the nhl, he's young.
i think he has potential but he just needs to work and get his confidence up.
Very solid in body strength, you can't really knock him down.
I think he could be a very strong addtion in the future.

he can hit, not a great skater, soft hands. Should be a good guy for the third line. Hopefully he sticks.

Decent wheels, I didn't think he was that bad of a skater.

As far as positioning, he looked like Stammer did at the beginning of the year. He needs to get in passing lanes, that might just be a product of learning to play with new (rotating) linemates.

My guess is Karsums could be a top six forward, but I'm guessing third liner at this point. Too early to tell?

Hes not a bad skater, by any means. The thing is, due to his size, people expect him to be rocket fast. Then again, they dont expect him to be such a bulldog. If he can overcome his flaws and put advantages into play, hes got all the tools to stick around and produce.

You cant put a stamp on player after 2 games. Only time will tell what kind of a player he can be for team.

By my count on Saturday he fell over 8 times on his own without anyone around him, mostly trying to change directions so either he had some bad skates or he didnt learn to turn in skating school. Also was probably the easiest person to get the puck off all season thus far, and that says alot when we have Lukas Krajicek puttting the puck on a platter for the other teams' forwards at least once a game!

For what it's worth, he did come from Boston and he probably watched Wideman and Kessel falling over about 10 times a game each so give him time!

Is falling over a less dramatic version of Carolina-ing?
