I just read the box score and it says he has an assist tonight. He played last night with no points but was a +1.

TG and others , tell us about this player. Who does he play like, what can we expect? Is he good at darts?

He plays with the same determination to win that MR does and is of a similar character (though not the same style). Smart player (I thought he played without direction when drafted but I turned out to be wrong). I see him as difficult to compare. He has solid O skills but looks to play a responsible game first. I peg him for a 3rd line monster of a center. A guy who has second line skills all day long but is such a solid two way player that he is the kind of player that you trust 100% to run your third line.

Hes really good in the corners and while I wouldn't call him a big league hitter I will say that he doesnt shy away from physical play. I bet he develops that aspect of his game in the pro's. He has better than average puck control. Needs to work on his play in front of the net a bit but that will come. He isn't afraid of it butI think he could use a bit more sand in there.

Such a solid character guy. Fits right in with MR types. His QoC rating is an 8+ so that says how much the org likes him. I think he is going to be a really good all around energy type who you want to have out there in the most critical situations.

Give him time and direction and he looks really good.

Not great but just as solid as they come. The kind of player you need to win.

To burn off a year from the contract as you suggested earlier, I believe you actually have to play in a game. Riding the press box doesn't count I don't beleive. Holden may be able to clarrify on this.

Looks like Holden already answered this in the other thread: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...&postcount=519

Shore is not eligible for a ELC slide since he is not an 18 year old or 19 year old, so if the ELC is signed to start this year (which with him in LA it appears it does) it burns a year, even if Shore does not see game action.

No, better everything. I like TL but Shore is considerably better in every aspect. I would compare him to Eberle but with less dynamic skills on O and better overall balanced skills. He is a tough one for me, I guess you could compare him to Stoll if you added grit/character and more overall skills. It will take some time to get there but he is a good one. One thing he has in spades is he is one of the smartest players I have ever seen at this stage of his game. It wouldn't surprise me if he became a team C in a few years.

He is that kind of a kid.

Yes in many ways I can see that. I think that Shore can become more in some ways. Better leadership skills and has shown more grit at times but Prospal seems fair. Like a North American Prospal with better D game and a more consistent performer.

Get him to the AHL ASAP. Possibly a cheap and handy player on the bottom six who can contribute to the top six and make little cap hittage.

My dream of having a Shore line is coming true...

Now we gotta draft his brother and trade to get Drew from the Panthers (which is gonna be really hard lol and most likely impossible).

I thought the same thing at first. Shore held the cards and the Kings wanted him n Manchester next season. Makes perfect sense.

Yeah, except Joe actually played some games for the kings that year. But then again, we sucked back then.

TG nailed it. I've seen shore play dozens of times. I think he'll be Stoll's replacement at third line C when the time is right.

If Manchester is eliminated, and LA is locked into a playoff seed with a couple games left, I can see Shore dress for a game or two. Even guys like Vey and Pearson may be rewarded with an NHL debut. IMO it would be a smart move by Lombardi as it would show the younger players that their hard work and dedication pays off. If I was GM I would not only do that but set an actual date so the kids families could be in attendance. Maybe get them a box suite even

Definitely agree. Those kids, especially Vey, have earned it.
