Problem is even if the Kings were to strike some sort of deal with Kitsyn's team what do you do with him at that point? I can't see much room for him in Manchester this year and isn't making the NHL squad... I guess they could send him to juniors but I really don't know if that's any better than playing in the KHL. Next year I'd love to see him over here in the AHL as unlikely as that is to happen. Anyone know if he's still WJC eligible this year? That would at least give him some decent experience and room to excel this year if he is.
I remember at the FF about the only time we could generate any offense was when those two were on the ice together. You guys had such a sick team last year.
Forbort's lateral movement seems to be a major issue, seen him get beat a lot to the outside.
I think they may be a bad pair. Blood seems to try to be too much like Chay Genoway from last year which he isn't. Earlier this year Blood was just skating around and Forbort was calling for the puck and he never gave him it. Forbort went up to him up on the ice after and I assume he got mad at him. Maybe just some bad chemistry.
Toffoli looking good as per usual. Getting it done as a playmaker today, 3 assists, possibly 4 (I'm not sure if he got credit for one on this latest goal, it would be a secondary assist if he did). One cross crease pass that got kinda deflected, but still nice. Then he came in over the blue line, stopped and drew a few guys over to him, and sent Monahan in on a mini breakaway for the goal.
