awesome start for the wolves. Some really impressive players so far.

Kassian
Tanev
K-con
Longpre
Lack

have imo stood out the most, and deserve some recognition.

I don't know about Eddie Lack. For someone who is supposed to be our best prospect, he has no points and was benched for the entire game tonight.

Bust.

nothing to do with the Wolves or our prospects but I noticed RNH and Eberle both have 0 points after 2 games so far. Goes to somewhat show the quality of the AHL right now because of the lockout. Although for all I know they could have barely played or looked like they weren't really focused or wanting to be there.

Decent. Despite the numbers i'd argue his line with Kassian and Sweatt has been better than the 1st line of vets overall.

Mallet is also a lot better than I expected.

I missed the first period and maybe it just the poor stream or the Wolves were sitting on a 1 goal lead, but I wasn't blow away by our guys or there's. I though both goalies were good. Kassian create a few chances with his size, but his hands haven't impressed me yet.

Apparently he was on the ice for all the goals against in the first two games. No wonder he got sat.

I don't know why they just didn't scratch him if he wasn't going to play. A prospect who was actually going to play could have been in the line up instead.

Arniel is ruining two of our players at once.

There has to be an evaluation period

I really expected the hogs to at least split... Seems like the more things change the more they stay the same: When the team holds the opposition to a low output they cannot score and when they do score they give up too many...

I like what I saw with Kassian in terms of puck possession. However, I wanna know if he is getting in the forechecking and throwing his weight around. theShaver on twitterjut asked me to come see for myself when they play the Heat...hello....thers a reason why I'm asking you bc I have to study ou ******...

Is anyone interested in watching the Wolves when they come back in January? I'm thinking of going then instead of this Saturday, so I can ask to leave early from work.

I hope that's sarcasm. Eddie has 3 goals against in 2 games played. One of his games was a shutout. They need to give Matt Climie some games too, he isn't paid to just sit on the bench!!

Kassian is looking pretty good, can't wait till the season finally starts so he can throw his body around in the NHL!

Peter Andersson fully deserves to be in the lineup right now. It's only been 2 games, but here's what I've noticed about him so far:

- one on one situations he doesn't get mesmerized by the puck and is very good at controlling the opponents body. I mentioned it earlier but in this respect he is similar to Salo.
- Also like Salo, for a big guy he is quite mobile
- He has a very active stick, and is able to use it to disrupt plays. He forced a couple turnover's as Peoria tried to gain the zone. It's always good to see defenders not allowing the other team to gain the zone with ease. This is something Hamhuis is an expert at, I'm always amazed how well he does in this regard ( not comparing Andersson to him, just a side note)
-He has also shown decent poise with the puck and handles it well at the point. A couple times in both the last 2 games the announcers have confused Andersson with Connauton when he has control at the point. I would really like to see Andersson get some time on the PP, perhaps at the expense of Matheson.

If Andersson can keep this up, he may have a future as a bottom pairing D-man at the NHL level. From my limited viewing of him, I can understand why the coaching staff is using him over Sauve. He simply is a more reliable defender.

That's an even number of sarcasm smileys...
Meaning they all cancel out and it's not sarcasm anymore?

The hell is happening?
