McIntyre looked pretty good against Cornell tonight, though he didn't register any points. Seems like a class act, though. He came over to shake Greening's hand again and chat a bit after the line-shake.
CHL Update is on the HF main page for any who are interested!
Can't wait to read it.
And Gelinas has to step it up. I don't care if he is on a bad team, he has to prove to the Devils that he can make something out of nothing, and so far he hasn't done that. I am just looking at the stats, but maybe someone who has actually seen him play can give us insight on this one?
Gelinas was a project pick and the team knew that when they selected him. He's still growing into his frame. It will be several years before he makes it to the NHL. I wouldn't get too down on him yet.
Ya, I would imagine he was selected by the Devils knowing he was a boom/bust type of guy and willing to take the gamble. They might have been even more comfortable with that feeling they took the safe pick in Josefson during the first round. I mean the upside of a guy who could be like 6'7" or 6'8" possibly and can play is a lot of possible reward to gamble against the risk.
How much did they all play? I know Wohlberg was on their top line last year and Burlon was in Michigan's top four last year, but I've heard that Burlon was on their bottom pairing now?
What about Hoeffel? I imagine he's got a pretty big role this year.
Hoeffel played a lot. He's on the right with Schroeder. You're right, he definitely has a big role with the team. He could've easily had 2-3 goals. He's improved his skating and I was impressed with his backchecking as well.
It looks like Burlon's game is starting to come around after a slow start. Such a smooth skater and not afraid to jump. Wohlberg showed off his speed on his goal and had a couple other chances. Not nearly as noticeable as Hoeffel though.
Helgeson was a mess in his own end. Fell skating backwards a couple times and ran a lot. Probably just a bad game for him.
If anyone can find a link to the Skelleftea - HV71 game hook a brother goose up. I wanna see what all the fuss is with this Larsson character in between Tedenby's 10 shifts. Djurgardens game would be fine as well.
