Foligno. That Foligno-Adam-Kassian line is doing work.

Luke Adam is making magic. Nice keep in to Kassian and over to Foligno.

That Foligno - Adam - Kassian line is positively beastly.

ha, just like the big team, they give a quick one up after scoring.

The first line is just dominating. Adam being out there just seems unfair.

McNabb's not the best decision maker. Big, sturdy kid, but he needs some seasoning.

The great part about it is that he has at least 2 years before he is going to make the big club anyways, just because of our depth.

Nice move by Catenacci there from behind the net. And I do like Varone.

Any reason not to expect them to be the Amerks' top line this season?

I like Varone. Kinda reminds me of Byron. Seems annoying to play against.

Before this tourney I would have thought the left side of that line would be an interesting thing to keep an eye on in Amerks camp, but I don't see how this isn't a lock from day one (staying together dependent on the team's other lines working).

I know! I'm loving these announcers, giving our boys props! Haha

I'm not too impressed with Kassian tonight, he had a nice assist but otherwise he looks unmotivated.

Impressed so far by Crawford. Really like the energy and forechecking by all the lines, especially Boychuk-Varone-Tropp.

I still wonder if Sather has cut the check for Bakes scouting services yet.

Well, given that Rolston put them together for this tournament...no. There is no reason not to expect them to be together.

Now I ask you this Sabretip -- is that an NHL line in a year or two?

Foligno would likely fit better as an NHL 3rd liner than an AHL 1st liner and considering depth + the benefit of being eased in, Adam and Kassian would fit quite snugly alongside him... especially if they had a year of AHL chemistry under the belt.

Noticed Pysyk only once (weak sauce one-timer ), McNabb kinda the opposite, noticeable in every situation be it good or bad.

Man it's so nice to be able to watch hockey again.. Kassian Adam Foligno line is looking good... I would like to see what Adam can do in some call ups this season, and am looking forward to see what a year of seasoning does for Foligno and Kassian

Big Al Kotalik might have something to say about that

I love how the Amerks first line will also be able to do all the team enforcing.
