Did you guys see the look on Blunden's face as he was falling on the ice? There was no fear in his eyes, he was laughing about it. What a bad mother****er. Give him that 13th forward spot.
Wouldn't be surprised if he got it, probably between him and Dumont since Engqvist didn't really impress. White also doesn't look like he will be ready to go and Moen is now hurt, good chance he plays against the Leafs
I could see Berger having a better season than Avtsyn in the AHL, the kid is stronger on the puck, grittier, has some nice hands, a nose for the net.. I really like what I see from this kid.. Bournival his usual self, a strong 2 way competitor with some nice skills that will play for the Habs in 2 years from now max.. upside: second liner downside: third liner.. cant miss prospect.
Not all that impressed with these kids. They're not dynamic or explosive enough skaters it seems to have a wide stride like they do. They all seem to skate the same way.
When I first saw Zach Parise skate on his college videos, I thought 'that guy is gonna be something, he skates like Steve Sullivan'. I don't see that from these guys and I don't see the skills as something that will compensate.
Drafting types of players does not equate success if they can't translate to the bigs.
We've done well with PK, Max, Tinordi looks good, Nathan looks great. I'd like to see some more home runs like PK and Price from this group tho. Some of these other teams have starstudded kid lineups and they're gonna start taking over the league. Our core is almost done.
