2-2 more than midway into the first period.

Linden Vey leads the entire AHL in points with 61. The kid is nuts.

I was coming here to post the same thing. He's looking awesome tonight! Pearson is as well (a goal and assist for him as well)

Without question you gotta put Linden Vey in AHL MVP talks. 2nd year pro leading the league in points. Impressive! Especially considering he's on... let's call them not the greatest team in the world. lol

Possibly moving to New Hampshire next year and if I do, I'll be attending tons of games. Excited to be able to possibly watch those two next year when they're a year older, stronger, smarter, more mature, etc.

Monarchs lose 6-3 to the Portland Pirates.

But, the big news out this game is with 2 goals and assist Linden Vey now leads the AHL in points with 62 points (20G & 42A)

Was Vey centering Toffoli when he was there?

Im sure its been talked about.. but does Vey look to be a top 6 center or 3rd line? Id imagine 2nd line?

Yes. Vey is a solid 2nd/3rd line C hybrid. He is has always been a scoring machine but is responsible anywhere you put him.

Vey continues to be a good one.

One of the things that's been exciting about Vey of late is how he's stepped up his game since Tofflli has been called up. Particularly in the goal department. Pearson has also missed several games due injury while Toffoli has been in LA. It shows me that it's him and not the product of playing with Toffoli and Pearson.

Vey does it all. Played the point on the power play tonight (looked good!) and plays the penalty kill (his 1st goal tonight was a shortie)

Would those that have seen Vey play consistently say that it's probable the Kings would just dump Fraser in the offseason and replace him with Vey?

I don't think they will. A Fraser type player is a key piece of our bottom 6 and LV isn't that kind of player.

I can see LV making the team when we move Stoll. He will be a perfect fit there with upside to become an eventual 2nd line C for us in a few years.

Manino is a funny guy.

Vey is doing great as expected but in his best interest we need to bring him up when we have a spot or a need. If not we end up making him miss playing time. I suppose we could send TT down and give Vey time on the wing...

Mannino is a funny guy. One thing I've learned from his twitter feed is that he's a lover of the culinary masters... Taco Bell.


As for Vey I don't see a call up this year and unless there is an injury. However, come next season I think he's gonna make it hard not to put him on the Kings roster. The question is where do you put him. I think he'll eventually take Stoll's roster spot. But, as you said Vey can play some wing so he could work his way in via the wing.


With salary cap coming down next season Toffoli and Vey are coming along at the perfect time! (Oh that Dean Lombardi he knows everything! )

Pearson is my favorite player in Manchester. Kid has this swagger about him.

He is relentless in the offensive zone.

What a pick by Futa/Lombardi.

I like him too. My only criticism of him is that we are seeing him at the top of his trajectory. What we are seeing is what we will get out of him as I don't see any more room for development.

I believe what he is doing will translate to the NHL no doubt and that if he is given a full season of development with the big team that he could become for the Kings the player he is for the Monarchs but we will have to see.

I still think he will at worst be an upgrade over King and at best a legitimate second line winger and that is pretty darn good.

My hope is he becomes a similar player to Justin Williams.

Nothing wrong with that at pick number 31. The idea is to get roster players at that spot.

So far so good.

I don't see the same kind of vision that JW has but that could be a good thing.

Pearson always seems to be more aware of what he is up to where JW, though he's really successful at it sort of throws crap at the wall and hope it sticks every now and then.

Like I said, it works and he can do that because of his knowledge of the game but I see TP as a bit more methodical.

Not that I watched a ton of JW at the same point of his respective career though.

I like TP allot and can see him being a solid NHLer in time.

And see...we had the same fear. This is why I wasn't a fan of the pick. Pearson really came on great in his last year of juniors but I was worried it was really just a case of a 20 year old dominating the youngins and that he didn't have much room to grow. I hope he proves me wrong because I had a list of 5 guys I would have picked before him at 30, and even after them I'm not sure he was next on my list.

He is a tough player to read entirely for me though. He always works really hard when I see him and stays busy so he stands out for those reasons but he also picks up the points at a decent clip so he gets you there two.

The thing with him though is that he doesn't grab you one way over the other at least not to me. Vey and Trophy (still cracking up over that nick name) are stand out O weapon players and that is where they garner the most attention, TP just ends up working hard and getting points. He looks the same to me today as he did the past four years. I never paid him a ton of attention until his breakout season and it does seem like he sort of just figured out how to play offence all of the sudden.

One scout said "start looking for a rabbits foot or a genie or something because somebody is either really lucky or got their wish" in regards to the transformation of TP's game.

I wouldn't go that far but he did sort of just start playing a ton better and then has plateaued to what we see today.

None of the step developments, just sort of a light went on over his head and here we are. I guess it could happen again but even if it doesn't I can see him taking his game to the Kings and doing pretty well with it.

I thought he was going to go in the second round at the earliest so I was surprised when I heard that he was our man and even more surprised when we actually drafted him but so far so good. In the end Futa is just that darned good and his group are just doing a great job too.

DL got the perfect fit in MF.
