haha way to ressurect a dead thread!

I was so confused by reading all of this.

I think MPS has looked great over the last month. I have way more room for him on my team than the crap, useless space of ryan smyth. he needs to get bought out.... and fast.

Forsure, there's just a lot of pretty ridiculous posts in this thread. A lot of people quick to throw around "bust".

Couldn't help myself, it was just too funny.

I'm hoping out of MPS/Pitlick/Hamilton/Martindale/Lander/Omark at least one can be a decent NHL player (or at least return an asset that may be an NHL player).
The only ones on that list who we should have expected to be in the NHL at this point (timeline was) is Omark. And maybe Pitlick, but its not uncommon for guys who play his style to take longer to develop. Having 18 year old ready prospects has screwed up too many people's opinions of development I think. Pajaarvi is on track.

Poor man's version version or Marrian Hossa. Good 2 way game, good speed, stays out of the penalty box and he might flirt with 30 goals once or twice in his career.

25G 25A 50P Two-way player. A poor man's Hossa.

He's got 6 goals in his past 15 games. Over those games he has been given a great role that he can finally thrive in. That is a 32 goal pace in an 82 game season. Obviously that would probably drop off but it's not too much to think he could score 25 goals consistently if he stays in the role he's playing right now.

There are some posts, especially by the guy who craps on Gagner and Paajarvi, that look really bad.

He's single-handedly made that 2nd line with Gagner a defensive non-liability to throw out there. Great to see.

Second line two way power-esque forward who will chip in 15 goals in a bad year and 25 in a good year.

He must have been drafted for a different reason than that, there are some positives to his game and some good raw skills that will eventually blossom. Euros take longer to develop, he's only 21.
Heh, I always had faith in ya Maggie. I really hope he continues to improve, he's a bigger part of this team's core and future than I think posters give him credit for.
