  1. Just to update the scoring stats: Hughes now has 13 points (3G 10A) in 11 games. He’s one point behind Makar (who had that hot start but has cooled off since) and three points off the outright NCAA defenceman scoring lead (with a game in hand on the leader). EDIT: I think Hughes will continue to climb the leaderboard, but I don’t think he can catch Adam Fox the way he’s playing for Harvard (15 points in only 7 games so far). However, it’s also a heck of a lot easier for Fox to put up points as an elite player in the ECAC than it is for Hughes to dominate the

  3. Wonder when Brett Leason is gonna start getting some love in the rankings? He’s the same age as Cody Glass, so in his D+2, and has absolutely exploded this year, on a 21 game point streak, with 19-25-44 in those 21 games (which is actually better than Glass’s pace this year). Prince Albert is scoring like 300% more goals when Leason is on the ice versus on the bench, and he has 19 more points then his next highest scoring teammate. So while he’s playing on a strong team, he’s pretty much the opposite of a passenger, and he’s driving that offence, and not just benefiting

  4. I’m generally a happy person. Got my wife. Got my daughter. Just found out I’m having a son. Gave my notice to my current job last week and about to start my dream job. All in all, I really have nothing to be upset about. Life is good. And even when it was difficult, it pales in comparison to those in the world who are truly suffering, living in developing countries and scraping by (if at all).

  5. Love the little skate over to the opposition bench and vocal celebration after the goal. Ref and a Gens teammate are even trying to hold him back as Matty skates right over to the Niagara bench and gives the Icedogs players an earful as he rubs his GWG in their noses. This was a chippy game, with 18 penalties called and 14 power plays, so clearly Matt was fired up and wanted to give it to the Icedogs. But honestly, Brassard also just likes to be a s*** disturber, regardless of the game story. Couldn’t find a nicer guy with off the ice, and he’s loved by his teammates, but he sure isn’t popular

  6. I'm going to play a bit of devil's advocate and go over something that's been on my mind since we drafted Quinn. Going into last year's draft, he was ranked 6th and 10th overall by a few publications that I recall. It was a stronger then average draft year, so this puts him on track to be a very good NHLer most likely. I see most of the forum penciling him into our lineup and treating it like it's almost a certainty that he will be with the Canucks next year. Looking at some of the top defencemen of the last few years that play a similar style, you see that

  8. Probably more likely that he hates losing. Dahlen stayed back in Timra to helps his team get promoted to the SHL when he could have gone himself since he was too good for that league. Im sure there is a lot of frustration on the Comets right now but I think your reading Dahlen wrong.

  10. Would like to preface this thread with apologies to any/all who might take offense. I have no outright agenda vs any particular special-interest group. Basically consider myself apolitical(will get into this later). At 50, guess I'm smack-dab, firmly ensconced, within good ol' middle age. I have no problems with this..kept myself healthy(long distance sports, for hobby). I woudn't want to be under 30 today, with the world as I see it unraveling. I'm curious if any of you gen-X(of that vintage) posters hold similar views? Would also appreciate insights/thoughts from people older &am

  11. I'll preface my rant-in-response with this little sidenote: Back in the mid-90s, there was an album by DJ Krush called "Milight" and interspersed among the tracks were thoughts about the future from the various artists Krush collaborated with on the album. While most of them were rather optimistic, one DJ named "Shawn J. Period" said, "...a lot of things are getting worse and they'll still get worse... I just see a lot of people getting caught up in the wrong things...." That was very prescient of Mr. Period since here we are in "the future" (from the perspective of th

  14. the big one imho was Malholtra. because he was out Kesler played too much and after the second round he was gassed - and got hurt the next round. Hamhuis was trying to stand up to the tough play and while we can't say that Malholtra being out caused his injury, the trickle down effect meant tried to step up and do something he rarely does... to try to make a difference physically.

True colors from Matthew Tkachuk.... ...throwing punches at Draisatl when the zebras are between them....jumping on top of McDavid when he's already tangled up with Backlund...and chickening out when challenged by Kassian....followed by a classic turtle that Matt Cooke would have been proud of.... At least Bennett answered the bell against Nurse.

  22. I was just trying to say, that just because you're a top prospect within the organization, shouldn't entitle ANYONE to be brought up without earning it. It sends a bad message to the whole organization. Dahlen was just the name that was mentioned by another poster as to who he'd like to see brought up, and I disagreed because I think that's something that should be earned and Dahlen hasn't earned it. It could have been anyone and I'd still feel the same way. In saying that, I'm not sure you can compare father to son, especially when that son is a millennial. ;-)

  24. Right. Because a guy who is having a hard time adjusting and isn't able or ready to be a consistent AHL player, is going to get his confidence boosted by playing in the NHL? That's logical? There's been MANY more guys have their confidence killed by playing in the NHL and being overwhelmed because they're not ready to play at that level, than there are guys who miraculously get a confidence boost by playing in a league that they're not ready for. They already know where he's at and he needs to improve in every phase of the game.....and giving prospects a sense of entitlement and playing f

  25. Bring up Dahlen? So much for playing well enough and actually earning your chance I guess? Because from what I've seen, read and heard, there are other players more deserving of a recall than what Dahlen is.....and just because he might be one of their better prospects, doesn't mean he's entitled to a shot without deserving one.

  26. And how did you come to that conclusion? Do you have quotes from said players dating back to the Devils organization? Or are you just assuming based on what you see or think? If its just your opinion then thats fair whether I agree or not but you cant be stating opinions as fact.

  27. Tampa Bay haven't had anywhere even remotely close to the injury issues Vancouver have and they were picking top of the draft while Vancouver were making the playoffs / legit SC contenders. I'm not saying TB haven't been well managed but they aren't in comparable situations imo.

  28. I agree but he really needs to limit his mistakes the rest of this year and tally a few more goals. One can definitely see the talent in him and he is competing but he needs to be more consistent and to be honest just lucky. He's been absolutely robbed a few times this year. Back to Dahlen, he has 4 points in his last 5 games. He's getting used to a new rink size, pace and physicality. I dont get why people are bashing on him so much but if you actually listen to some of the experts like Button then you'll find out he still has a very high chance of becoming a top 6 winger alongsid

  29. When it comes Goldobin I always get a charge out how the comments that were trotted out for Virtanen never seem to apply to Goldobin. There's 10 months age difference between the two players. While Virtanen and now Juolevi, we're constantly remind are still so young and need time. With Goldobin it's a case of where's the closest bus so I can throw him under it

  30. I get that you hate watching the Comets lose, but...take a look at the Canuck roster. 6 regulars missing, SIX! This rebuild, or whatever the Canuck management has been trying to do since 2012, has taken time, but it's good to see some young kids on the farm, and in the NHL. To say that Dahlen is hating being in Utica is extreme to say the least. Just breathe man, do you think we're ecstatic after watching a seasoned pro take a stupid penalty with 3 minutes left in the game? He might not be on this roster if it weren't for injuries, and you'd have Biega down on the farm, as well as Leipsic, Mot

Kaapo Kahkonen just played 5 Games so far but his Stats are Fantastic. He´s 4-1-0 , with 3 Shutouts , a 0,79 GAA and a 0,972 SV%. We are excited to see if he can bring up such numbers over the entire Season and we hope he will get some more Starts in the next Weeks. He could be probably knockin on the Door for the Backup Job next Season. Kaapo allready played 100+ Games in the SM-Liiga and he´s just 22 Years Old . So it seems h

  34. Going out of your way to hit a rookie in the last 3 mins of a tied game way after the puck's moved on is inexcusable for a veteran D. Show's poor judgement, low intelligence, low compete level (focusing on the wrong things and not about winning)... Thought Del Zotto had a decent game otherwise but I just lost it when he made that hit.

Jasek has been used all around the forward ranks this season for Trent Cull’s Comets, mostly stapled to the hip of Carter Bancks. He has been used on the wing as well as the middle, and to his credit, he has looked pretty solid as a pivot. He picked up a goal and an assist today and is up to seven points in 14 games this season. While that isn’t as impressive as the seven points in six games that he put u

  36. Just want to point out that Pettersson May be a bit homesick. New country, new team, no family around it must be really tough for him. He is our most valuable player and fans need to be supportive of him and the team in order to keep his spirits up. Really happy he got a goal tonight.

  44. I have been following this kid since the just before his draft year, when all the pundits would reveal their who to watch for etc. Boner at that time was listed as a possible top 10 pick. some had him even top 5. But they all said. Scouts don't like the HS circuit he plays in. If he wants to be in that mix He would have to go the route Brock took or Quinn took. He wanted to finish with his HS Kind of like a Dahlen situation. Maybe he thought, in the end, it would pan out for him. Well, it didn't for him. But sure as hell did for us. Guys like him and JR Adam fox play in a weaker div then

  48. Nah, not so far. EP of course could do both offense and defense from the start, Bo and Boeser got it pretty quickly, but most rookies don't. As I said I agree that Green doesn't tolerate cheating on D, and that makes it that much more difficult to be in a position to score for a new player. In Gaudette's case I'm not sure what his offensive ceiling is, time will tell, but I also agree that a stint in Utica soon - scoring in a 1st line role - would probably be good for him.
