I'm kind of confused as to why bystrom was left off the wj roster he leads all junior dmen in goals and assists and is sixth among all junior players (u-20) in points in the SEL, is he not solid defensively yet or is there more to the story.
I am not sure if anyone watched the Niagra vs London game last night, but I caught the 2nd and 3rd period and wow was I impressed with Ritchie. A lot of people talk about his numbers being so good because he plays with Strome, and that helps a ton, but Ritchie made a lot happen on his own. I was very impressed with all aspects of his game, and he was playing against a team that has won 17 or 18 straight games. I can't wait to see him against the big boys and see how he does.
A bit annoying that the Ryan Strome article for the Prospect of the Month acts like Ritchie is solely riding his coattails.
I saw that. It is what it is. I like to read some of the articles but I don't put much into any of them. That one in particular seemed to be written primarly for Islanders fans so marginalizing another good player while making theirs look better is to be expected.
