Ya gotta love that last throw-away line: But with Sather, the line was always blurry.

Its official: The fans, players and now the COACHES don't know what the hell he was doing behind the bench.

6'4", 196??!!

He's darn right he has to work on his strength? Falardeau has the frame, but, boy, does he need to fill out.

Jessiman learned to play the point on the PP?

I saw Falardeau play one game this season, and he was a beast. I don't know if it was just a really good game, but he was rolling over people left and right. He looked like he was bullying a bunch of 12 year olds, very encouraging to me.

Which game was that? I saw 3 Mich State games this season, was disappointed in LF, he seemed to smother, rather than nail guys into the boards.

well i question if that 6'4 196 is an accurate mark of his current weight or if that was just taken from his profile...

cause first off, that would mean that he hasn't gained a single pound since being drafted 2 years ago...

second, the article lists jessiman at 6'5 200, but last year a few days after the draft jessiman told blueshirt bulletin that he was 216 and midseason he was reported to be 220-225. so unless jessiman lost 20lbs, that means that the article is using his profile which lists his pre-draft weight not his current weight...

MSU lists him at 6'4 217...which is still thin but alot closer to what you want him to be then 196

Interesting to hear..

that Falardeau played the season with torn cartilage in his shoulder. Wonder how much that affected his play, both physically and scoring-wise.

Than I guess he's been suffering from it for two years.

Meanwhile Stoll is just playing his way into the Oilers lineup.....gotta love it.

I've probably seen Falardeau play around 15 times since he was drafted and for the most part he's pretty disappointing. He's big, yes and when he does use his body he seems to dominate many of his opponents, but it seems that he seldom does that.

His offense has been fairly limited and his skating only about average, although I have seen him score a break away goal and there was a game last year where he had 10 shots.

I won't completely write him off, but I'd say he's more likely to be a two way third liner maybe second liner in the AHL at this stage of his career. This year he should be able to put some better offensive numbers together as a senior, but if he doesn't I think he's probably almost ready to consign to the AHL.
