Yeah, I understand keeping your lines together on the PP to start a tournament to get chemistry, but that wasn't the case. Also, at some point you have to put your best players out there together (did that on the PP in the 3rd). I am actually glad I haven't noticed Carlsson. One, I've been watching the USA guys. Two, that means he hasn't done anything bad.

It's only been 2 games (almost), but Matthews doesn't look like the #1 overall pick. I know I am a little biased, as I have already said I maybe wouldn't draft him if we were picking first, but he just isn't standing out like he should, IMO.

You mean like Eichel last year? Wants to be the best player on the ice so gets greedy and forgets that he actually has skilled linemates and can make him look a lot better then he will by playing by himself

Tkachuk is just as dirty as his old man. He'll fit in well with the Jackets.

Got beat by a goalie and one mistake on a rush. Good performance by our guys though

That's what I was thinking. Eichel looked terrible last year in the tourny. I think Matthews will look better as the tourny goes

Eichel is also presently being outscored by Joey.

If he continues developing by the time he's in his 4th season he'll be dominating Joey. It took Joey two years to do what Eichel has stepped in and done.

What? You were expecting him to be Buffalo's savior?

There are no saviors in the NHL.

Why have the draft, then? Isn't the whole point to give a lousy team the one player who can change everything?

Hardly. It's not "the one player". There's useful assets that you can build on that you get that way. But you have to actually BUILD ON THEM to get anywhere. (See: Edmonton)

Mild response. I was hoping to draw the little dude with the bat at a minimum.

Is Werenski Polish for 'savior'?

I'll repeat, Tkachuk can take our unnecessary penalty total to another stratosphere.

I'd limit Werenski's minutes now. He has played a ton in this tournament so far.
