Because he is not huge he wont have stamina?!
Most smaller guys have tons of stamina, Kipper is about the same size and is just fine

I wouldn't call Bunz a bust, but if he finishes with a .885 save percentage at the end of the year it would be a lot lower than most NHL goalies that played AA.

All I have seen of him are offensive stats.

How is he defensively?

Supposedly really good.

I read an article a few months ago that said he was playing around key minutes against the opponents' top lines and coming out on top.

There's some encouraging stuff in this article: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article...aller-stature/

Quote:
One of LaLeggia’s biggest improvements this year in the defensive zone has been his ability to play bigger opponents one-on-one. LaLeggia can not only play opposing forwards in open ice but he can battle for pucks in the tight corners when bigger players try to lean on him and out-muscle him for the puck.
edit: Here was the other article: http://www.uscho.com/2012/10/02/ten-...n-for-2012-13/

Quote:
Finishing fourth on the Pioneers in scoring, LaLeggia did more than just score points. With just five defenseman in the lineup most nights, LaLeggia had to develop into a leader on both ends of the ice immediately, and he proved able to do so quickly, playing key minutes against opponents’ top forwards.

This is the first day where next year contracts can be signed, so we could see some of our 2011 draftees signing their ELCS soon.

I'm curious what they'll decide to do with the two Finnish goalies.

Has anyone managed to watch Khaira play? Curious as to what they'd think.

Bunz

Can anybody give me an update on him as a prospect and regarding his potential and likely outcome?

If you have twitter give the OKC barons a shout, they may give you a heads up.
I asked them a little over a week ago about him but all they told me was he's still on the IR.

Watched Erik Gustafsson friday night, he's been getting some praise lately so I thought I'd give him another chance. But no. Still unimpressive, looks awkward defensively, had a massive giveaway for Karlskogas second goal and just doesn't look good at all out there.
He's got size, ok skating and pretty good offensive instincts, but he just can't play d to save his life, his positioning is waaay off. Either I keep catching his worse games or the hockey experts I've heard praise him are full on idiots.

The only thing imo that could turn him into an NHLer is if the talk about him heading to Frölunda is true and Roger Rönnberg, who's a really good coach, can turn him around. Because right now I just don't see him even sticking in the SEL unless it's a pure PP role, which usually doesn't exist on swedish teams.

Zharkov with a goal and an assist.

The goal was pretty dirty too.

Got a pass from behind the net at the left side of the net and dragged it across the front of the net and went backhand.

Sounds NHL 13-esque.

A PPG for Simpson and a PPA for Khaira in the NoDak vs. MTU game last night.

This also happened:

Yikes.


McCarron and the Jones' playing each other too.

1g1a for Kellen, 1g for Connor and 1a for McCarron.


Bigos and LaLeggia were pointless.

Wow. Quinnipiac really didn't want their season to end.

They just beat Cornell(McCarron's team) 10-0.

Kellen Jones = 2g1a, Connor Jones = 1g2a

Game must have been chippy. McCarron ended with 27 PIMs. Elbowing minor, Hit to the head major and two 10 minute misconducts.


Also with Merrimack's loss to BU tonight, I believe Bigos' season is over. Could see him getting an ATO/ELC soon.

No points for Simpson, Khaira or LaLeggia.

Both NoDak(Simpson) vs. MTU(Khaira) and Denver(LaLeggia) vs. Colorado are tied at 1 in their best of 3 series.
