BU's first PP unit has Keller, Greenway, JFK, MvAvoy and Krys. Crazy good. Reminds me of when I would head into Walter Brown arena when BU had a first line of Tkachuk, Amonte and McEachern. Those BU/Maine games were awesome.
Messier's nephew Luke Esposito is over 4 years older than McAvoy
Folks he's a baby in his hockey life
He's got serious skills plays physical and is a leader
If anyone here flips on him for 2 aggressive penalties that's insane
Yea any criticism I have of McAvoy isn't damning...I think he is still an amazing prospect.
But I see a project...I don't see a Drew Doughty level, but I see potential for him to be a very very good player. Bruins do need him in the Top 4 D ASAP but to me McAvoy doesnt look ready...as in next season, hope I'm wrong (like Carlo).
Again...this is only the 6th game I've seen him play this season..very limited viewings so all this is with a huge disclaimer.
I just wish I was a little more impressed with him in the games I've seen, like I said, I wanna love him as much as everyone here raves about him and hopefully I will.
Loved his play at world juniors too and LOVE how physical he is.
I hope I am very very wrong and he becomes BETTER Doughty
and yea...would totally take him over Fabbro..easily just on skillset alone.
Just trying to taper my expectations for him a little cause to me he still looks like a bit of a project...which is what he should look like given his age.
