The kid has great hands and excellent vision. Screw his foot speed, he has 30 goals, 40 assists written all over him. Just wait until he knows his teammates. Again I don't care about his stats tonight, but watching his strengths against hungry NHL competition tells me a lot.
If we held onto Forsberg, did you want him in Hershey for a year? I seem to remember some suggested it as if they knew it was best for him.
I actually think Hershey is not always best for everyone young prospect and am glad for him that he is not stuck in the NHL. Did anyone suggest he would have been up in Washington this year? He was earmarked for Hershey. Wasting his talents perhaps, maybe its best we moved him. I used to think Osala was good.
We can't lose, really. If FF goes onto immediate greatness, it helps show George to the door.
He looked good in what little I saw. But a kids first game is often just that. He is expected to do well for years if not a decade. His first game is not the final judgement.
