Skapski took over in relief last night, and ended up losing in the SO. He played well, though. His past few games he's been very strong:
Eight nights ago, his team was out-shot by 20 but won. Skapski stopped 51 of 52 shots that game. It would be a boon to the system if he emerged as a legitimate goalie prospect.
Buchnevich is still out. He was concussed, and it looks like the team may have been too quick to bring him back. He played a few days later, but was out midway through the game and has missed the past couple Severstal matches. Hopefully, he's okay. He's too ****ing young to be dealing with concussions.
I wasnt considering that a skill, but I guess it is. Thought you were talking about like an offensive skill set.
I think he has a Stu Bickel-like projection. Noreau is a considerably better fighter and probably a bit better of a skater, but they're similar. It's nothing to get excited about, but that's actually good value from a fifth round pick.

Me either. Noreau is an excellent scrapper, hard punching lefty. Haven't seen any report on him but he's played in 20 of the 24 Greenville games. No points, 3 fights and a minus 1. Hope he can make the jump to Hartford next year.
He's having a good season. Your saying he's having a 'great' season ?
His team is very interesting, some good prospects that will be selected in the next few entry drafts, hope his team becomes very competitive so he can continue to grow.
No, I say underrated because no one's really talking about him here. Similarly, Troy Donnay is having a fantastic year for Erie. I know this fanbase is sick of defensive d-men but it's great to hear about the success of Skjei, Graves, and Donnay given our recent struggles.
Charlottetown is a weird team. A lot of great players but they can't sustain any consistent success. Watch out for Danny Sprong, Will be a top 10 pick next year IMO.
