Absolutely no need for another goalie at this point, the missing link is a high scoring forward. If it were up to me, I'd swing for the fence with every pick and try to land that impact forward. Probably most would flop, but if one panned out to be a sniper....
Pens have enough depth in prospects, great young D and solid and deep in goal.
I guess I was way off about Korpikoski. I guess we'll be very lucky if we can land him at #31. Though I still prefer Nokelainen.
Korpikoski - Has worked his way onto the first line of the TPS junior squad .. terrific skater .. has short, quick strides and changes tempo with ease .. skates low to the ice with good balance .. likes to challenge defensemen one-on-one and go around them .. not big, but looks strong and sturdy on the ice .. doesn't back down from physical play .. took a big hit in the game and answered shortly thereafter by utilizing his frame with some edge on a forecheck .. very good puck control skills, even at full speed .. finishing skills are still very undeveloped, even despite effort, he never really came close .. showing more energy than before, while his added intensity has transformed him into a sought-after prospect.
Nokelainen - Continued to impress with a strong game against Switzerland .. scored his first marker of the tournament on a rebound .. plays on the first line .. can be a real force along the boards, although more so against the Swiss than the tougher opposition such as Canada .. skating and confidence are on the rise .. mature, competitive, but not a terribly exciting player to watch skills-wise.
Those are the most recent posts on McKeens for both players.
