Wow, it looks like they had a scoring chance, and some goals, at even strength. Amazing.

Time for some positive news. Scott Laughton had another goal and two assists tonight for Oshawa. Now nine points (3 G, 6 A) in 3 games.

Glad he's not here being "coached" by Laviolette.

how many players from his class are playing juniors? Ceci? Pouliot, Koekkoek, who else? Nothing he does in juniors will impress me whatsoever.

Nobody drafted below Laughton is in the NHL. And if he were drafted by a team without all the center depth he'd be playing right now.

ok. He should lead the ohl in pts if he plays the whole season with the amount of talent on that top line.

Playing juniors for two years after being drafted isn't exactly out of the ordinary. Much higher rated players on teams with much less forward depth like Scheifele and Strome both played two years of juniors after being drafted.

That being said, him scoring all these points isn't any reason to overreact and think he's the next big thing. He's honestly doing exactly what he should be doing and that's nice to see.

That is kind of my point. IN the minors he can only regress. EVen if he leads the ohl in points he is just doing what he is suppose to be doing .

As for the regressing, if he were the Generals' go to offensive guy for the last two years, I'd agree with you. However, this is his first year of actually being the top offensive threat with them. He'll likely tear it up all year, play a key role for Canada's WJC team, then probably get traded to a contender and go deep in the playoffs, which is something he hasn't done yet in his OHL career. I don't see him regressing or stagnating at the junior level yet.

What do you guys want? He did nothing to standout in his NHL trial. Yeah, he could maybe hold his own on a 4th line. He's 19. Let him play and develop his game. He's not going to do that playing 7 minutes a night. And it's not like he dominated the OHL the last three years either. He had a nice stretch last year. Let's see if he can do it wire to wire with the target on his back. His game will not stagnate in Jrs. Ryan Strome and Mark Scheifele both had a lot less to prove than Laughton when they were sent down the last 2 years. And their teams certainly had a much bigger need for their services than the Flyers do for Laughton. The CHL Player of the Year last year, who averaged 2 PPG is back in Junior too. If Laughton were here the Flyers would still be 0-3.

Maatta and Carrrick are in the NHL now.

So lets say in theory the Flyers wanted Laughton back, would they then get his 10 games to decide permanency or has that ship sailed? I don't remember how that works.

The ship sailed, once a player is returned to juniors they can't be brought back up unless of an emergency call-up like Giroux did a few years ago in Ottawa.

My bad, someone else said it and I just regurgitated thinking it was accurate. Oh well.

Claude Giroux played two years in the Q after his draft year. His 2nd year was the crazy playoffs where he had 51 pts in 19 games. Wouldn't that type of domination be impressive?

Giroux was a fun player to keep an eye on. It felt like every day he had some absurd numbers.

I remember that. It seemed like twice a week we would get the same updates like "Gatineau won 5-2, Giroux had a goal and 3 assists. He undressed 4 players before scoring his goal".

I remember that playoff year where he had 51 pts in 19 games. There was some excitement when he arrived.

This is why I like sending Laughton down. Let him keep deleloping the offensive side of his game and get more confidence. How knows, maybe he exceeds his perceived upside. The NHL is littered with 2nd-5th rounders that are now 1st liners. Why is it so absurd that Philly can't have a late 1st rounder become a 1st liner. I seem to think it has happened before for them...

I wish the Phantoms didn't have so long between games so the competition to be the next 3LW could get going in earnest.

Until Rosehill is a 13th forward and Talbot is back on the 4th line the Flyers are going to suffer.

another important aspect that is being left out is, he doesnt look to be in shape to be an NHL player, give him this year and I'm sure he'll bulk up more for the rigors of the NHL. helping him to transition his game better

Will be cool to watch Laughton in the WJCs, should be a good experience for him. Hopefully Stolarz too. Also Hagg should be there.

Unless Hagg is injured he is there, at a home WJC as well for him and Sweden... he was a pretty important player on one of the better Swedish teams of the last ten years last year after scraping onto the team, and got more playing time for them every game. By reckoning he was arguably one of Swedens best players in the final.

I would imagine there is a decent possibility he will have an 'A' on his shirt as well, with an outside shot at the 'C'... him and de la Rose are the only returners who have ever captained a team.

Forsberg, and Lindholm are not going to be back, so I imagine de la Rose is going to be captain, and most likely Hagg and Collberg with the A's... as they were in the u-18s, and Sweden like naming the same guys captains through age groups, though Wennberg could take one instead.
