  1. LeBlanc did have a lot of points but had nowhere near NHL speed and that will keep him off the roster imho. He does see the ice well and distribute the puck but will not be able to increase his speed enough to crack an nhl line-up long term.
  2. There were many better than LeBlanc in 13. He was probably the best example of a team leader but there were many better players that year.
  3. I think Kane will win but second place will go to Syd, not McDavid
  4. Agree Modry. I would like to see more of Vinny. Haven't felt that Kero brings the energy that Vinny brought. May be responsible in Q's system but he (67) doesn't seem to have much upside to me. Also would like to get a good look at Hayden to see if he can be a big center to replace 15 for now or into future. Hopefully AA will be back in due time. I thought he broke his ankle when I first saw the replay.
  5. I got to sit next to Kero's parents last year when he made his debut in Minneapolis. Very nice people, even for Yoopers!
  6. I always like how everyone seems to assume that if Kane scores x number points and Panarin x number of points playing together, that by breaking them up we are just moving x number of points to a different line. I wouldn't be so quick to split up the second line. 1 + 1 may equal 3 when they are together and less than 2 when seperated.
  7. Written by a guy who obviously never played high level sports and has no understanding of the strain a long season(s) of a highly physical sport can have on a players body, and the recovery that is so necessary for replenishing the body, and obviously someone who has never taught a classroom of students.
  8. He is a special player
  9. Actually MVR, the time to completely overhaul the PP was a few years ago. But I do like your ideas, especially putting Anissimov in front of the net. I dont think Shaw has been very effective there.
  10. Not sure if I agree Lord. I thought defense gave up too many chances and were often caught out of position, especially Seabrook. Crow gave up two goals but he made so many spectacular saves that he singlehandedly shut down their scoring chances. Defensemen, not so much.
  11. Maybe Doogie but you know as well as I do that Q won't let a good thing ride.
  12. True, but I like Panarin where he is. He (and Anisimov) has lifted the second PP unit to a whole different level
  13. Good one Caddie!
  14. Yep, but no to Rosi
  15. Rumors have it that Rundblad will be moved to forward next on one of the top two lines and will take his place as the new "man-child"
