One of those LOLWUTOMGWTFBBQ IS GOING ON! moments. This is cuh-rayzeee. Where the hell has this been all season. It seriously took switching coaches, not even putting the new coach behind the bench mind you, to get them going?
Wow, talk about psychological issues, we should switch head coaches every period, maybe we'll play like this more often. Hitting, sticking up for each other, Aulie fighting, SCORING?! SHOOTING?! Making saves?! One has to wonder, was Boucher slipping downers in their gatorade at intermission?!!!
We'll revisit that comparison when Killorn puts up anywhere close to a 40 goal season... He's a great player but Hossa is among the best.
In his defense, I called Panik "Diet-Hossa". I assume that's what he was comparing Killorn to. Hossa is in a different league from these kids no doubt, but there are certainly similarities. Imagine a couple years down the line with more seasoning and strength training.
I actually find Killorn very similar to Hossa - great hands and very intelligent player who's capable of putting up good numbers offensively. Also helps that he's defensively responsible too
Panik's defensive game is what sets him and Hossa apart. Hossa is an incredible 2way player. Panik is not. But I do like the comparisons when Panik is on the rush with the puck on his stick. That's where I see the similarities. His skating, silky hands, moves at top speed, and vision are more like Hossa.
