Let's temper our expectation folks remember there is still a lot of games to be played.

Finn plays so much like Weber it's ridiculous.
Agreed, I was one of the few people who saw Finn play live before(though mostly 3 games) last year and he stood out to me in so many positive ways. I also would have rather Finn than Ceci, partly because Finn is much better defensively, has higher IQ and plays a rather simple game at both ends of ice, and also Ceci is very overrated around here, the guy makes way too many boneheaded plays defensively and isn't great offensively to make up for it.

For Comparison, I would compare Finn to Ryan Suter and Ceci to poor man's Phaneuf.

I still don't know why the senators took ceci. I personally though it was more due to the hometown presence. I really thought it was a foolish move. Never saw the hype when he was tearing it up and still don't see it.

Edit: Grant changed the title for you

The only flaw I see in Finn's game is his skating, the only thing that may hold him from becoming legit top-pairing d-man when it's all said and done.

I think hometown thing had a lot to do with that pick. Shortsighted move really. He could still turn out good though. Has only been a few months since the draft haha.


And awww, thanks. Although I was the one who suggested the Connor Brown one...haha

He's special from the looks of it and I hope with the depth we have in the D we give him ample time to fix any weakness and continue following the wing's development route.

The game is tied for the warriors now. Unclear if the warriors have a powerplay or a penalty.

edit: penalty kill for the warriors.

Np.

I agree it seems more like it was done for the hometown. I mean even Laata would've been a good move.

Good read, thanks. Watched the Knights-Erie game last night and I don't think they talked about anyone other than McDavid for the whole time...
