Corey Locke

To be honest, I thought that he showed that he wasn't ready to perform on a top two line at the NHL level. I went to the game hoping to see Locke showing that he could translate to the NHL, but to me he seemed a step behind always behind on the play.

I'm hoping that we'll see something more in the future, I think he's going to be among the next round of cuts.

Hoping this was a typo.

Unfortunately he showed that he will never play in the NHL until he find some speed and has better upper and lower body. Since he won't do it, he'll be a great AHL'er for life and will help our really good prospects become better. Not the best option for him, but a great option for the team.

There had to be a reason when a scoring champion is picked in the 5th round....This guy has reached his ceiling right now and there's no attic.....

No, but he could have displayed future potential, maybe even a scoring touch. He had trouble getting INTO the offensive zone. It was pretty sad actually.

I appreciated his efforts though. He may not be the biggest guy nor the fastest. But he tried and he actually played a 2nd game because he tried hard in his first game.

I can just hope he works on his size/speed.

He drew 2 penalties, had a 2 on 1 with Kovalev where he kept the puck and treid to score. The first game asgainst the leafs was a much better game for him.

But I think the hardest thing to do when trying out for an NHL team is centering two guys Samsonov and Kovalev who really are just trying not to get hurt in pre season!

I don't think he could ever play center on this team with Ribeiro already playing that role and doing a much better job of it. We can't have Ribs/Locke as 2 of our 4 centers. But a good season from him in Hamilton should get him another shot next year since this is the final year of his contract. At worst he should be a big part of Hamilton's offense.

I think you guys are being a bit too harsh on the guy. He has not shown that he will never be an NHL player as he is still young and still has potential to get better. Also he was centering Samsonov and Kovelev, who were terrible last night. All they showed was a lack of team play and incredable softness, wich led to Locke not getting any chance to show what he can do with the puck.
