Goertzen and Simon will do about as much as Platt did, and Platt has a lot more upside than either of these two.

Platt needs some time back on top before he is poisoned and turned into Dan Fritsche.

It's a good move. The kid can do more down than up for now.

Platt wasn't as impressive as I thought he should have been. Too small, but I think he can make an impact with some more fine tuning on his part. Good thing we have such good training and development programs in Syracuse...

Platt came up too fast. He didnt show me he had the potental to be a full time NHLer.

What did you expect him to do?

Yes, we should definitely be counting on a guy who signed a free agent ECHL contract at the beginning of this very season to come in and give us a serious offensive lift. Look, Platt was hardly a world beater. The problem was with expectations. Can we pull out some of those old threads? (Martin St. Louis was like this kid, so he'll definitely come in and score 40-plus goals for us.) You wanna say Feds hasn't been "as impressive as (you) expected", fine. (Pubstar, that's what is known as a set up.) But to say that Geoff Platt, who, while he was here, skated hard, did some work in the corners, threw the puck in front of the net on occasion, took some penalties and struggled in his own zone, wasn't "as impressive and (you) expected", perhaps you expected too much.

Good Numbers.

Hes 5-9 171. He isnt up here for his defensive prowess, his fighting skills, or anything but his offensive ability.

Please dont tell me or anyone else what to expect.

Thank you

Chippy. And you're the one who told me what to expect. I originally asked the question.

I'm not disputing his past numbers. They werwe good. I'm not saying he played stellar while he was here. He didn't. He certainly needs to be in Syracuse. I'm just questioning the wisdom of expecting a lot from a guy with no NHL-level experience, that's all. And a lot of folks here did.

Geoff Platt impressed me more than all of the rookies (other than Brule), including Fritsche and Picard. This kid works his butt off. He has 5 assists in 15 games. That's far better than of the rookies (other than Brule). He was absolutely robbed of his 1st goal. He had some absolutely brillant scoring chances. He made some incredible passes, and if his teammates had been better, he would have made far more points (for instance, that pass he made to Chimera right in front of an open net that Chimera totally fanned out.)

He's probably not quite ready for the NHL yet. He took some silly penalties because je's still learning. But I'm certain this kid is going to be an NHLer, because you can tell he wants it. He's not like a lot of the high draft picks who seem to think they're entitled to playing in the NHL and don't work for it. But I think come next season, Geoff will be playing on the 2nd line full time for the Jackets.
