I'm working on an Armia goal reel if anyone's interested.
I looked for one for this season a few days ago and didn't find one so I figured I'd take a shot.
I wanted it to be a highlight reel like the last one I did (Zibanejad last year) but that's way too many games to sort through.

Edit: see below for new and improved version.

I didn't add music but if anyone has a suggestion, let me know.
I really wanted to add his WJC goals from this year but TSN has changed their streaming and I can no longer rip videos from their site.
If anyone knows how, again, please let me know.

If you combine that video with this one of his goals last season, you can see every SM-liiga goal he's ever scored:

Chain, thanks for the consolidated links page.

jfb, thanks for putting the video together. I enjoyed watching it. Hopefully we'll be seeing a lot of the same in a Sabres shirt in the future.

Iggy Pop - The Passenger because he's a lazy European floater

I would go with Motorhead - Ace of Spades as it is A. rockin' as all hell and B. matches his team.

The song is only 2:48 minutes long but you could follow it with another Motorhead song and it wouldn't be out of place, such as Overkill, Motorhead (well that's about being an amphetamine junkie, so maybe not), etc.

If you decide to go with that I could send you a lossless compressed copy of the song(s) so that the audio doesn't become all crap when it becomes encoded to the relevant codec.

Also, I'll take a gander at TSN's video service and see if there's a sensible way to dump the feed

If someone could do a prospect review on the prospects fromn 2010-2011, thatd be great. I wasnt around and I'm not sure the kind of players they project to in the NHL (besides the obvious).

It was tricky, but I figured out the problem.
I just had to try a bit harder.

I'll update the video with them soon hopefully.

Great job. Are these all chronological? Seems like it with where the WJC games are placed.

Man, I'm continually impressed with where his shots end up. He has no problem elevating his shot to pick high corners from in close.

Yeah, they're all in chronological order because I'm not creative.

He makes some of his shots look completely effortless.
That one against Denmark is probably the best example.
It's interesting to see the difference between his goals from last season and this season.
The dekes are mostly gone and now they're just lasers or garbage goals.

Nice. Man, this kid is really impressive. His shot is great. Even his backhand, he doesn't seem to have any trouble elevating. I'm also pleasantly surprised by how strong he is at using his size along the wall and to shield the puck (Gernat tried to hit him and just bounced off like a bumper car in that one WJC clip), and how good he is on the forecheck.

In my world...

2011 Draft Selections:
Round 1, Pick #16: Joel Armia RW: Natural goal scorer with good size and speed
Round 3, Pick #76: Daniel Catenacci C: Great skating offensive center, may be better suited to the wing.
Round 4, Pick #106: Colin Jacobs C: Ended the last season as third line LW after coming back from a lengthy injury rehab. Has the size and skating, needs to show more of the offensive skills that had him be a high bantam draftee.
Round 5, Pick #136 Alex Lepkowski, LD: Rugged local kid, could be a bit of sleeper.
Round 6, Pick #166 Nathan Lieuwen, G: Signed, will be fighting it out with Knapp for the #2 job in Rochester.
Round 7, Pick #196: Brad Navin, C: Overage, went straight off to to Wisconsin and played a lot as a true freshman on the 4th line. Rugged kid, had some serious scoring totals in HS, still a project.

Round 1, Pick #23: Mark Pysyk RD: Steady, smart, great skating stable defenseman coming off a great final season with Edmonton Oil Kings.
Round 3, Pick #68: Jerome Gauthier-Leduc RD: Smart, skilled, great offensive d-man who's progressed nicely in his own zone. Should be more than just a PP specialist, junior coach once compared him to Letang.
Round 3, Pick #75: Kevin Sundher C: Like Catenacci, very fast center will be in Rochester this year as a rookie pro.
Round 3, Pick #83: Matt MacKenzie RD: Smart defenseman who was willing to play anywhere this past season, played both D and center when asked. Started coming on and then missed time with a skate cut injury.
Round 7, Pick #203: Christian Isackson, RW: Effort player, played a season in USHL, mostly at center before heading off to a so-so freshmen season as a Gopher. Small but smart, works extremely hard.
Round 7, Pick #208: Riley Boychuk , LW: Struggled as a rookie between AHL and ECHL after finishing out his junior career as a solid physical player. Needs to show up this year more like the big guy who would hit, fight and go to the net with the Winterhawks.


I took out Shipley, Sutch and Henley as they were not tendered and are no longer Sabres' property.

Yea, obviously he still needs to get stronger but I have pretty good confidence that he'll fill out well and be able to use his size to his advantage offensively, which as you say he already shows signs of doing. He's still a bit raw in his awareness from what I've seen so far, which is in line with being a bit of a late bloomer.

So long as he has a reasonable commitment to win puck battles and compete on defense, all the optimism I hold for him should not be in vain. The guy's a natural with his shot and shooting instincts. The thought of Grigorenko centering him for a decade makes me giddy. If I'm in charge, those two are as untouchable as Myers. Roll the dice on them being the future, because the payoff could be huge.

He'd slipped my mind a bit recently. There's reason to hope he could be a player down the line.

Ullmark has been invited to the Swedish WJC camp.

Edit: Thought this was new but apparently it isn't.

18. Buffalo Sabres: I was concerned about the Sabres' system prior to the 2012 draft, but after getting an elite prospect in Mikhail Grigorenko and a very good one in Zemgus Girgensons, it restored stability to their pipeline. It's still thin, but the talent at the top between those two and a player like Joel Armia is very good.

Just to be clear, am I the only one who still thinks this is a dumb ****ing play by Hishon?:


He cuts through the middle, watches the puck, and lowers his own head prior to contact, which is something the NHL looks for on these types of plays.
I don't really see what McNabb can do in this case since it looks like it would have been a clean check if Hishon hadn't leaned forward.
It's probably a tough play for McNabb anyways since he's like seven inches taller than Hishon.

This post is inspired by Avs fans who are still salty over this play on the trade board.

I thought Hishon was made a poor decision at the time but Brady hit him in the head and deserved the suspension based on how Branch and company run the CHL discipline. Don't admire your pass and pay attention to who is on the ice, right? It also sucked because I had Sea Dogs-vs-Ice tickets for the next Kootenay game and didn't get to see McNabb at the MemCup live...
