I was at the game today and I think Teräväinen was pretty good actually. I think V.Filppula, I.Filppula, Moses and Teräväinen were the best forwards in Jokerit today. Teuvo showed nice puckhandling skills and made couple of nice passes. He started the game as a center but played most of the game as a winger. In the own zone he had some problems to win the battles with strength but most of the time he handled those situations pretty well with his good positioning and nice stick checking skills. I hope he can play with I.Filppula or V.Filppula in the future and then the points will come. I afraid if he has to play with Pulkkinen, he can't do much.

What's the deal with Pulkkinen? Wings fans have been raving about this guy for some time, but reports from the Fins are not good. Did he just stop getting better?

If I listened to Wings fans, I'd be locked into thinking that Calle Jarnkrok, Tomas Jurco, Tatar, Mursak, and Brendan Smith are all surefire hall-of-famers. A more overrated group of decent prospects (save Smith, who truly is a very good one) I have never seen.

Pulkkinen is a sniper who can't score anymore. I think he is worse than he was couple years ago.

Young players often don't improve aspects of their games over the summer.

Martini would complain about Kane if he was playing in the AHL; "He needs to be tougher", "no excuse for getting pushed off the puck", "grow a pair, man". Everything he says needs to be taken with a gigantic grain of salt.

Oh, don't get me wrong - all of those prospects are.

Just that Wings fans are hyping them up as the surefire replacements for Datsyuk, Zetterberg, etc., which is in reality extremely unlikely.

Scoring is often a confidence issue, Pulkkinen doesn't have much of that right now. On the other hand his skating and defensive game have improved.

Wasn't saying it to be an ass, just saying I was surprised by that news. If he truly has developed a semblance of a shot it'd be nice.

Broadhurst just scored for the Knights. 3rd goal of the season.

It's shaping up to be an ugly game for the spits.

mcneil and danault are playing today.

I hope this pans out, Need a big frame and two hard workers that can contribute.

We need a relevant third line again depth wins you championships..

Versteeg-Bolland-Buff/Ladd was great when together

If we can get these prospects to pan out from our dismantling we will be there or better I still believe:

Saad-Bolland-Danault
McNeil-Bolland-Danault
Shaw-Bolland-Danault

Can't wait to see these kids prosper!
I like all 3 of those lines, but I really like the last one the best. Shaw and Bolland looked really good together and Danault would really fit there. But maybe it does need more of an offensive guy like Havlat and Versteeg: like Saad.

Danault scores his 11th goal to give Victoriaville the 3-2 lead. 5 minutes remaning.

Danault now has 11 goals in 8 games.
He had 18 goals in 62 games last season. Wow.

Whitney having another good game. Stopped 27 of 29 so far. I really think we got a complete steal in the 7th round. A guy with his size is intriguing.

edit- Adam Erne ties it with 50 seconds left in 3rd period. Damnit.

Broadhurst played well tonight - 2 goals in an 8-2 blowout over the spitfires.

Danault is playing the best hockey of his life. I think most assumed he could, at least, be a quality checker/third liner.. but the offense he's showing is definitley incouraging. I don't think he'll end up being a top-6 forward, but a fringe one that brings excellent defense? Looking more and more likely. Still, it's early, but he's producing at a rate I don't think anyone could have expected.

BTW, McNeill isn't putting up the kind of numbers Danault is, but he also has a point in every game he's played this year (including tonight) and has 8 points through 6 games, with the 3rd period about wrap up.

Danault now co-leads the Q in goals and leads in points

McNeill scored the shootout winner and had an assist. From the play-by-play, his shootout goal was pretty nice; sounded like a spin-o-rama, backhand into an empty net from getting the goaltender out of position.

McNeill - 6GP, 3G, 5A, 8Pts
Danault - 8GP, 11G, 5A, 16Pts

The PA Raiders are undefeated in regulation so far this season, boasting a 5-0-1 record. I believe they're currently first in the WHL. The Victoriaville Tigres are 3-3-2.

Not Hawks-related, but I live a couple blocks from where the Wolves sometimes practice and went to a preseason game between them and the Rivermen (Blues affiliate) last night.

.... nothing much to report, though. Nothing really stood out positively or negatively. Play was decent, goaltending was decent, a few nice plays here and there, Wolves had some issues keeping the puck in the zone at times, but nothing to overly praise from either team or too much to really nitpick.
