Is there a written code out there that you can only root for your AHL affiliate while the NHL is MIA "for now"?
Honestly, I'm done with the optimism regarding the negotiating. I'm taking it all with a grain of salt, but it wouldn't surprise me if a deal is done next week.
Nahh, I can actually see myself watching one or two OKC games even after NHL starts..it's fun seeing the prospects develope..
Maybe I can do GDT for one barons game a week..one day get promoted to NHL Level GDT one game per week? lol
To me, his development reminds me of a typical Red Wings prospect who doesn't become a regular NHLer till he hits 23 or 24...he's got the character to do whatever it takes to learn..he may take some time and will need the organization to be patient with him..if they are, it could pay off big time..in a few years he could be a great 2nd line left winger.
I'm scared that Oilers will get impatient, because he's a tenth overall pick..but I think he should be treated like a longshot 6th round pick..I don't think he is a longshot, but should be treated as one.
