I just watched the game on DVR and let me tell ya, that Jonathan Audy Marchessault looked very sharp last night. I think he has a future with the big club and will challenge for a roster spot.

Great pick up by Gordie and Slats

Plus he forced two offsides by standing up the puck carrier on the blue line. Are you saying he keeps his gaps too tight, or too loose? If you provide a specific example it would help.

Really pleasantly surprised with what I saw from our prospects. My first time seeing Thomas, Parlett, Audy-Marchessault, etc.

Tim Erixon is a bonafide NHLer. Book it.
Blake Parlett was the best player on the ice IMO. His stock is on the rise.
Christian Thomas while maybe not NHL ready has a high hockey IQ with a skill set to match. Should have a long productive career.
Ryan Bourque- nifty creative little forward with great speed, but sadly he will probably never crack our roster for size and durability reasons. I really like the kid and wish there was a way, but I just don't see it happening. Trade him now while his stock is high and he can get us something in return.
JT Miller- Showed flashes, now I see why we drafted the kid. Still 2 years away possibly.
JAM- Liked what I saw, seemed to stand out at times in a good way. Good pickup for us.
Hagelin- Heart and soul type but maybe undersized. He will find a way into the league though, just not ready now.

Something tells me that if Yogan was a first round pick there would be glowing reviews on this board today. However, since he was a 4th round pick there are mixed reviews. I thought he looked very noticeable and was probably the best player out there.

No, I and some others wrote that he played a very good game, he just couldn't find the back of the net. Read my review on him a page or two back.

I'm not certain why everybody is so down on Bourque's size. He plays a terrific game, skates circles around his competition, and lets not forget he's not old enough to order a beer. There's plenty of time for the kid to put on another 15 pounds in muscle. In a year or two, I'd love to see the kid on our third line.

He's still bigger than Zucc.

Yes, but he has had 2 or 3 concussions already and he is not old enough to order a beer Size is an issue.

I'll also make a video of the five Rangers goals, but wanted to see first if there are any other highlights (other than the fight since there's already a video of it) that people want included.

too loose, on more than 1 occasion he let a player skate right into the high slot for a shot because he kept backing in.

Thought NYR could have really blown this game up. Jake Allen played an incredible game and a couple of defensive lapses lead to two goals the other way early on. This game could have easily been an 10-0 route!

Nice playing #NYRProspects

Having the goalie rob you point blank twice is not an incompetent game...learn the difference b/t a save and a miss maybe. He was average because he couldn't bury the puck but you're a fool if you allow yourself to be blinded to the fact that he was good. Give me the guy who puts himself in position to score three times and gets robbed twice over the guys making mistakes and doing their best to imitate a ghost. I thought he'd bury those chances coming in. He did in the AHL with his cup of coffee so I know he can. Amazing how many people don't know how toc redit goalies for great saves. Also amazing that nobody is offering any real critique like "His shot was too low, he held the puck too long, he skated into the goalie before shooting, he fumbled the pass..." any of those would sound like you actually know what you're talking about but labeling a save a miss does not. He had the one miss but not three.

St. Croix I noticed in the 1st and never again. Everyone has said all there is to say about CT, Hagelin, Bourque, Erixon, Parlett. Bourque stood out to me as much as I could have thought possible. CT looked like he was mentally and physically ahead of both teams.

He does look a little like PAP. But then, so does Zuccarello, in a way.

I would be very interested in seeing a few good plays by Erixon and McIlrath.

Yogan also had some chances, one particularly on from the near side in the 1st period where the top half of the net was open and he put it clear over the net. It's one game, he's got more to show what he can do. We'll see what happens.

I really liked what I saw from Thomas, fearless, went into the corners, dodged defenders, came out with the puck, made plays. I liked it a lot.

I watched the game again this afternoon & kept a close eye on #73. I did not see ANY gap control issues, at all. Blues forwards made 1 or 2 nice moves into the slot area. Didn't matter who was there on D. The only miscues I saw were early on in the 1st period & that was due to miscommunication with his D-partner on getting the puck out of the zone efficiently & nerves got the best of him. Then in the 2nd period...he quickly iced the puck when he had options for possible break-outs. I thought he needed to show patience with the puck and try not to get discombobulated in those situations.

I thought he played pretty well, personally. Nice set of hands and a good sense of surroundings. Should be a great addition for Connecticut. He seems to be lacking in foot speed, however, a lot like Parenteau/Zuccarello.

Completely agree, his game was incredibly well rounded. Fantastic pickup by the scouting staff, I would not be surprised to see him challenge for that 5th/6th spot with MDZ, Erixon, and Valentenko, given the fact that we could use his offensive skills.

Seems like a bit of an oxymoron, wouldn't you say? Bottom line: Yogan was in the middle of play, getting scoring chances. Yes, it would have been great for him to finish these chances, but as long as he's creating space and chances on the ice, he played well, and that's exactly what he was doing last night. He had a very good showing, especially for a player who has missed as much time as he has.

If fanning on opportunities made you a career AHLer, Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky would not be in our top 6.
