So....1pm start time here? Gives me time to hit the gym and then settle down to watch this. While I will be focused mostly on Quinn, it will be interesting to see what Jack looks like in a full game...not that I think we have much chance of landing him (our team not sucking enough, and "Canuck luck"). I've not see Jack in anything but highlight clips.

 

And is it me or is Quinn's "elite" skating more notable in terms of his turns and overall agility more than his top end speed? Or does he not shift into his top gear all that often when his lower gears are more than ample enough for him to excel on the ice? He does make it look easy out there at times.

Has the season started for Quinn, or have these games only been pre-season games?

The Vermont game was the regular season opener. 

 

Michigan’s 2018-19 NCAA record is 0-1. 

 

They haven’t played any conference (Big Ten) games yet though.

4:30pm. Unless you’re in Hawaii?

 

It’s a 7:30pm ET start (in Ann Arbor).

 

Pregame (radio) at 7pm ET. Stream should start around 7:25pm ET. 

 

So the game stream should be starting up at 4:25pm in Vancouver. Puck drop at 4:30pm.

Much appreciated. No need to rush my workout at all then. :)

It's because he rarely moves in a straight line. I've only seen him skate in a straight line when he's getting back defensively. Otherwise, he's always using crossovers and tight turns to evade defenders offensively. That's why people called him a defensive version of Barzal in his draft year; both players are always always using crossovers and can change speeds in an instant.

USA all over Michigan in the early minutes. Quinn says screw this, rushes up the right side and almost sets up a goal.

Hughes had an assist tonight and 6 shot attempts (3 on goal). Finished -2.

 

I just saw a few bits and pieces, so can't really comment directly on his game. From what I've heard from others, he was trying to do too much tonight and made a few questionable decisions, and got burned on a couple plays. I suspect that he's kind of finding his way right now. Michigan as a team has been a bit hit and miss early on. They definitely aren't a well oiled machine yet. But it'll come. They have too much talent and are too well coached to not be a powerhouse this season. And Hughes is just too good. But we haven't seen the best of him yet this season.

 

EDIT: This link should give highlights. Q's assist is a nice cross ice feed to set up a shot (Norris) and tip (Slaker) for a goal.

From what I can tell of his offensive game, he generates around 5-7 scoring chances a game, but no one can finish them.

Yeah, he’s been unlucky so far. Really should have a lot more points, based on all the chances he’s creating. Hopefully he just keeps playing his game, and doesn’t let frustration/impatience affect him too much, because the points will come eventually.

Probably most of the NHL.. The one foot thing would be him transferring his weight during his shot. The most impressive thing on the play was him creating the screen and getting the shot through.
