Noticed that Colborne is getting alot more shots per game recently, I know at the beginning of the year, he'd get 1 and sometimes even 0 routinely.


Also noticed that Rielly is shooting alot in his young pro career, he already has 3 shots tonight, definitely a good sign.

I have pretty low expectations for this guy(havent been high on him for a while, on the other hand I was always expecting alot of kadri) but I'd be happy if he progresses.
Exactly I really don't think people watch him play. He's 6'5 and doesn't use his body at all. He floats around and is very very slow. There is some skill there. I watch every marlies game broadcast on tv and even live. Big joe most likley will not pan out as an nhl player for the fact that he's too slow for nhl speed and he doesn't use his body the way he should.

He's no where close to being an NHL player at the moment. 4th like centres like mclemment are so far beyond his abilities.

I guess Eakins gives players the A on their jersey if their floaters

I only saw the last 10 mins of the 1st where he had his ups and downs.

Had a decent rush where he skated up the ice and took a shot and they got some sustained pressure.

It seems that the forecheck is somewhat overwhelming for him (understandable), he got slammed along the boards on the forecheck but managed to stay on his skate. He looks strong and solid on his skates for someone who got drafted last summer playing in his 3rd pro game.

In the 2nd on the powerplay he got himself in trouble in his own zone when he had trouble shaking off the forechecker and Peoria got some chances.

He doesn't look out of place, but it is evident he is still adjusting to the pro's.

Looks bigger than I anticipated though, pretty wide.

Colborne looks good in the offensive zone, moves better and with more energy/intensity than last time I watched him play.

Anyone know why Komisarek and Connolly aren't playing? Shouldn't they be showcasing those two with the deadline a week and a bit away?

Both injured maybe?

Even more mirrored by losing in a shootout

Rielly got to shoot in the shootout haha. Tried to go five-hole and got denied

I believe so. Komisarek just missed today's game though, should be good for Wednesday. Not sure on Connolly.

Ashton has also been out the last little bit with a foot injury I believe - in case anyone was wondering.

Probably saw him when he was injured. His play is night/day from that. Much more noticeable of late - even when he's not producing points.

That makes me feel better, it takes longer for big boys to get their totality together. Hopefully, he shows well @ next years camp or called up during playoffs.

Thanks.

Not great timing for them to get injured. 3 games left now before April 3rd. Hopefully, Connolly's injury isn't too bad.

Big guys with long strides can look slow and also appear to be floating. The floating accusation was made against the Big M, Frank Mahovlich, for example. Not that Colborne is going to be another Frank Mahovlich! But from my own admittedly limited viewing, I don't think he is too slow to make the NHL.

Eakins an option for the Tampa coaching job, said in jets/lightning intermission. Ruff the favourite.

He's not allowed to leave until next season. I think they want a new coach in now.

And, if they are going with an AHL coach they have one of their own in Cooper, who has a better pedigree than Eakins.
