Video games ruined people's thinking. What improves as players age is patience, consistency, decision-making, positioning, strength, etc. W/ few exceptions, players don't get twice as fast, become fancy stickhandlers, or somehow learn to shoot accurately in their twenties.

Yes, "crappy" rarely compliments anyone's style of game.

It did wonders for Kyle Calder.

I change my vote to Olsen if that's possible or even matters.
that implies that he has been able to light up the AHL so far, which he hasn't.

Agreed, Morin is not our #4 prospect. IMO

He was the main piece (or maybe Clendening?) in the Buff/Sopel/Eager trade.

I went with Danault. I almost voted for him at #3, but kept faith in McNeill.

I still think McNeill has a higher ceiling than Danault, but Danault is more likely to reach his and will reach the NHL before him.

It was a tough choice. I've seen nothing but good things said about Danault's play in the AHL while McNeill was scratched/invisible in his Hogs call up.

Bolland is a 4th line center now?

wouldn't be a problem with 4 guys on their ELCs and 3 on their 2nd contracts with 2 million max.


this roster has a lot of problems and this is what you come up with? How did we get Vanek? Bolland is on the 4th line?

Vanek is just dying to play for Chicago. Just like Suter and Parise.

Haven't you heard?
