Jake really showed great signs last season, I think one game he had 7 shots..

That year with Green in AHL was the start of the new Jake..

Jake has been awesome only avg 11 mins a game for the first 35 games last year but toward the end with injuries Jake really stepped up his game..Great to see...I predict Jake -  72 GP - 19 G - 37 PTS - -2018-19

If the bolded happens this year that would be exciting as hell to watch!! I hope you are right.

If Jake pulls that off I'll be over the moon. For now my expectations are a little less optimistic, but I did like what I saw at the end of last year. I'd predict more like 25-30 points, which is still an improvement and movement in the right direction.

Gerard Gallant didn't line match & he did pretty good...just saying...

Gallant had 4X 2nd lines.

Jake seemed to discover down the stretch that he could be an NHL player.

 

Next step is to realize he can become a dominant player.

If what a previous poster has said is true, that he is working extremely hard with Pavel Barber and is making significant improvements, I think it will be exciting to see what he can do next year.

I know the lineup is up in the air til training camp/start of season.  But would like to see Virtanen given a prominent role offensively with talented offensive players.  He faired well flanking Bo Horvat and Goldobin down the stretch.  

 

He has so much more to give, but plunking him down as a checker isn't going to spark that creativity from him. 

 

With that speed, size, and hard lethal shot...he simply needs someone who can get him the puck on his stick.

Lol

Maybe, just maybe,that Jake has been reading everyone pumping his tires and feels he is the next superstar on the team and wants to be paid it, instead of proving it first ;)

Let’s get to signing him. 

 

Jack is gonna need Jake as much as Jake needs Jack. 

If Jack helped Jake off the horse, would Jake help Jack off the horse?

You know, this will probably be put to rest this upcoming season, when Jake just pulverizes Nylander, and the Leafs just take it.

Awesome!
