Andersson scores to tie it at 3, assists from nyquist and almqvist.

great play from both almqvist and nyquist to set up a wide open net for andersson.

5-3 win Ferraro with the empty net. He's looking like another helm in the making

McCollum made the saves you have to make to get a 'W'

The first line was scary good.

Almqvist was behind both the tying goal and go ahead.

yep almqvist has looked great recently, he definitely has some great offensive potential, he must have like 6 points in his last 6 games or something.

Gus also now tied for scoring leader in the AHL, though he does have two games on Schultz but has really only played one more cause of the injury early last game.

Almqvist's first four games: 0 points, 2 shots, -1 and didn't look comfortable at all. Last six games: 6 points, 8 shots, +1 and looking better and better.

Andersson and Pare also had slow starts but are a big part of this turnaround.

Yup.

First 4 games (all in October): 0pts, -1
Last 6 games (all in November): 6 pts, +1

Its like something clicked for him in November.

tommy mac. made some really great saves in the third, very good to see, maybe mrzek is rubbing off on him. Almqvist was very good, also very nice to see, tho the best thing to see was goose looked great, no signs that he was hurt.

The speed of a Helm-Ferraro duo on the PK unit... I really hope Landon continues to do well.

His play reminds me exactly of Helm. I know Ferraro had trouble later on in junior scoring but now that hes been relatively healthy in the AHL he looks to be the much more natural offensive player then Helm, and while Ferraro is definitely well above average fast, Helm wreaks more havoc on the PK.

Overall, extremely similar though. You can count on Ferraro for a few big hits and some grit just like Helm. 3 of Ferraros points are short handed. They could be awesome on the PK together in a few years

How about the faceoffs? Is there any hidden data of them somewhere? Would be interesting to know how good Ferraro, Andersson, Sheahan and Aubry are.

They were getting beat pretty good on the draw last night, just finished watching the replay. It is not a real big strength of many of the players on the team. They aren't horrible, but nobody is close to a faceoff ace.

It can take a couple of years to become a good faceoff man. I wouldn't worry about that detail..

Can anyone see Ferraro legitimately centering the Wing's fourth line in a couple of years? I know Andersson and Sheahan are ahead of him on the depth chart, but do you think he could leapfrog them?

1. Ferraro is fast, but he's not Helm fast.
2. He could end up being 4th line center one day. But I think he might be a better player on wing.

I think the best place to slot Ferraro is as a 3rd line winger with Helm. He's got enough speed to play at Helm's pace plus lots of skill to capitalize on chances. I could see Ferraro growing into a Dan Cleary type of role in he continues to improve. I think a Ferraro-Helm-Sheahan 3rd line could be a very good one (and the exact type of mix Babcock likes for his lines)

Have to agree with this. Helm is arguably the fastest player in the league. Ferraro isnt on that level but hes still an elite skater and gives teams fits with his speed.

I'm not ready to say hes going to be anything more than a 4th liner in the NHL until he keeps up this scoring for a while. I think youre right on the Cleary thing though. In the end Ferraro may become a guy who can ride shotgun with a good center in the top 6, wreak havoc on the forecheck, play a little gritty and still capitalize on some scoring.

He doesnt have the natural speed of Helm, but his natural offensive touch is much higher. Hopefully it all comes together because I really like the way he plays and hes becoming one of my favourite prospects

The Cleary model fits, I think. When Cleary was an above average skater, he was a useful player. Like Cleary, Ferraro has goal scoring chops, but not much playmaking ability.
What remains to be seen is if Ferraro can play in the tough areas of the ice like Cleary did. And it cost Cleary, too.
