Laurent Brossoit is having a great second period. Looks like a good goaltenders duel between himself and Makarov.

I'm jealous of Calgary, Brossoit hasn't been great this season but when he is on his game he is one of the best.

I think Rielly is quite a bit ahead of guys like Reinhart, Murray in terms of offensive ability that he can afford to take those risks.

As far as translating to the NHL...without playing a game in the NHL so far, Rielly can skate better than 95% of NHL'ers. Kessel (if he's still around then) is going to love playing with Rielly.

His skating, and his vision are his two most important qualities. He knows how to find guys that are open and he knows how to get open.

I think every elite offensive D takes a lot of risks but that is part and parcel of the game. Erik Karlsson takes a ton of risks but he does a lot more good for his team that it doesn't even matter if he gets burned once or twice.

The only young elite D that I can think of that doesn't take a lot of risks and still manages to play a great offensive game is APie, even then that is based on limited viewings.

Also on a side note Duncan Siemens has been fantastic so far IMO. Blocking shots, shutting down Yakupov along with Murray, playing good on the PK and just playing a very safe game. If he can do that on most nights for the Avalanche and put up some points, he's going to be a keeper.

If he develops well..I think Colorado wins that trade.

I think you're misunderstanding. When I'm talking about him transitioning to the NHL, I'm not talking about his tool box. I'm talking about the way he uses it.

Edit: I also don't think Karlsson is quite as high risk as you're making him out to be. Not one-on-one with a player, anyway.

Golf club grip? lol. That sounds problematic for basically anything hockey-related.

Well. There was one shift where he made a mistake, but he's making good decisions, moving the puck well, etc... nothing flashy, but he's making the right things happen at both ends of the ice.

I had my suspicion before but Makarov just confirmed that he's not usually a puck playing goalie. Seems to be a undecided at times at where to play the puck to. Usually not a good idea to bring the puck behind your net as a goalie.

Right back up and getting into the play. Definitely the kind of competitiveness you want to see after a guy gets rocked.

I don't like him as much as some people on HF. His D game is good, but sometimes it looks like he's never made a pass in his life. He's not a quick decision maker.

WHL gives so much more space to Russia in comparison to what OHL did.

Funny how the 2nd has been a mirror image of the 1st. Russians laying guys out left and right and pushing offensively. Excited to see what the 3rd brings.

This is about as good as a 0-0 game can get.

This is a good game.

Edit: And nice job by Rielly to get back, and keep the player from having the time and space to do more than he did.

Shame Rielly was out of gas at the end there, first time he had space all 2nd period.
