    My intention was to provide a little bit of clarity, but I completely f***ed up and associated your post with an argument made by someone else and didn't double check myself. I'll own it as a reminder of why I don't normally post while at work

    It does matter

    I am not devaluing goals whatsoever

    But lets be honest here, the talent being thrown at Ras is the goal mouth rebound or tap in variety, that plays well down below the dots, certainly not the creative driving the bus type.

    So lets not confuse the two.

    I do value centres that score. But I am smart and experienced enough to know that for Ras to be an effective top line centre (which again was the sole debate to begin with) he will need to be generator of the offence not just the recipient.

    That is the job of the NHL centremen. It' what all the best ones do, have done and forever will do.

    1G, 3 2ndary assists. Rasmussen was 2nd star. He has been the #1 or #2 star in many games in a row now.

    Ras is quite clearly lurking in this thread, people wanted more assists and he delivered!

    Now matched Ryan Getzlaf's combined d+1 and d+2 playoff totals.

    Getzlaf: 19gp, 9+14=23 points
    Rasmussen: 7gp, 10+13=23 points

    It's kinda a bummer that you can't really see him in the highlights this time. I guess the video starts at the primary assist.

    Let's offer Carolina a 2nd round pick for Morgan Geekie.

    Looks like a sweep for TC. 1 assist for Ras, few minutes left.

    I doubt it. I'd say he has the value of a 1st rounder at this point. Looks like the Canes got a nice player in the 3rd round.

    Rasmussen and the boys will now have to keep this torrid pace up against the best goalie in Major Junior in my opinion in Carter Hart.

    I think they can, but ultimately this a really big test with both teams clicking on all cylinders. Hoping to catch a few of these games for sure.

    Rasmussens net front play is gonna be a big factor in beating Hart. Hes gonna have to have a big series if they have a shot

    I think that he will, I am pulling for him to take that team all the way.

    Z had his best offensive numbers on the wing too. Don’t mean he’s not a C.

    Except the Wings have converted multiple natural centers to wingers, even when they had very little center depth. And, given that his numbers haven't just increased, but have exploded, and because he doesn't have the play making or vision that a top line center needs, he looks to be much more likely to be a top 6 winger not a middle 6 center.

    Too early to waste any time for some position debate.

    Rasmussen is one of most promising Faceoff guys in juniors, so at least for Faceoffs it would be total stupidity to waste his talent. Of course, if you can find an ideal partner who is othervise absolute stud natural center but bad at faceoffs (someone like Malkin), just put them together, and let Ras handle the winger duties after the dot duties.
