Wow, really confused about Rakell centering 4th line. Not sure if this is the best idea.
However, looks like B&B are willing to put Rakell in professional environment. There will be a lot of free days for training after the first 2 games.
That is, if Rakell doesnt fall out completely in given games.
I will have to watch the recording when I get back cause the family is taking me out tonight. Will watch it the second I get home although I know I won't be able to refrain from following the game on my phone.
I hope Bonino has a 3 point night so he can work on proving me wrong.
Exactly. They probably see Rakell as a better pick for this particular game, with Holland being a better fit for Calgary.
On twitter i understood that they are just giving Rakell the first game, no matter of opponent. That seems logical since they'll evaluate him if he's NHL ready. Because if he wont be, they'll immediately send him back to OHL. Damn this thing is confusing
Most of you have probably seen this...but just to get back in the hockey mood...
I'll never understand the fans that are DESPERATE to trade Getzlaf (yeah there are some. More of them on Twitter than here though). He's as much a definitive Anaheim Duck as Selanne, Niedermayer, Giguere, Rucchin, etc.
He's got his quirks (never shooting the puck, behind the back passes to no one) but he's a Duck and I think he always will be.
