Yes back into the draft, like Alan Quine in 2013.
Funny I googled his name to see his stats since the trade and I saw this before going to elite prospects.
Cholowski had 2 assists and got the first star in his return to Prince George. Rasmussen had a goal on 8 shots in a 3-4 loss.
Ugh, what a stupid thing to do. I didn't think he was this much of a hot head, at least I don't remember seeing clips of him chucking linesmen around before. Wonder what got under his skin here.
Guys on that twitter post are saying the linesman tripped on a stick.
Did he get extra time in the penalty box?
There's a thread dedicated to it now, no he only got the original minor and fighting major. (Apparently...didn't watch the game)
Edit, welp just visited that thread and realized this was a useless post.
Cholowski's stock continues to rise
Portlands coach is comparing cholo to Seth Jones who also played for Portland years back.
Well that's some high praise, good to hear.
pronman on hronek.
If anyone has 1D potential in our prospect pool, it is cholowski. Not sure he will be offensively talented enough to be one but maybe so. He certainly is physically able (skating, strength), as well as defensively able. Should be a good top 4 guy at least.
Pretty much what expected. Cholowski will be NHL player very soon and Hronek could have problems with his speed, which isn't a problem in AHL.
I think it's actually the opposite. Hrm. I think Cholowski is better than advertised offensively, but not nearly as good defensively as some think. I mean, he's better than Hronek, but that's not really a high bar. I don't think Cholo is going to be a shut-down defenseman. He probably won't be a liability, but you aren't going to want him up against McDavid or something.
I agree with that right now, he will get better defensively though. He has the size and the skating. I think playing in the A would help him in that area.
cholowski's advertised skills are skating and puck transition
hronek's skills are hands, his shot, and good offensive vision
i have no idea how you could, from that, conclude that Hronek isnt as good offensively as Cholowski. I mean, last season in their respective draft+1 season, Hronek outproduced Cholowski's current production (in his draft+2 season) while in a lower scoring league. You dont think if Hronek returned to juniors again this season, that he would outproduce Cholowski? You wouldnt expect any improvement from Hronek over last season, in terms of offense?
Imo, you pretty much match your best skating defenceman against McDavid, or you fail.
Tri-city played Portland last night and Rasmussen had 2 goals
HIGHLIGHTS – Hawks Honor Legends But Fall to Americans – Portland Winterhawks
Oof, embarrassing step on the puck for Cholowski on that first goal.
I know many are not high on Gilmour because of his size at 5'10 and 180lbs, but here is a clip from an article yesterday that shows how valuable he is. I hope Detroit sees beyond the stat line and realizes how much better he makes his teammates!
On a positive note, Spirit forward Brady Gilmour, who has been out since Jan. 19, after sustaining an elbow injury on a dirty hit against the Sudbury Wolves, made the trip to the Soo last night, although he did not dress.
In the 23 games without Gilmour (who was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2017 NHL draft) the Spirit have only won 6-games, while losing 17-games in that time frame. Gilmour would add some much needed offense, while balancing out the lines.
The Spirit have not indicated whether Gilmour will return before the playoffs or not.
Well, to be fair, the Red Wings haven't won since Tatar left.
Not sure if Gilmour is a first or 2nd line center for Saginaw, but if the guy they replace him with is worthless, it doesn't mean that GIlmour is something special, it just means the other guy is inept.
To be fair SaginawFan didn't say Gilmour was "something special."
They just pointed out there is more to his game than the stat line would suggest.
Does every conversation have to be spun into a negative here?
Again, win-loss record without might say more about his replacement than him.
If the Red Wings are 20th overall with Jimmy Howard and then sink to 28th with Coreau, what does that really tell you?
Does it mean there's more to Howard's game than his stats suggest?
Or it could mean that Coreau is horrible and mean nothing about Howard.
1) it means howard can help the team win
2) bad analogy
3) Gilmour helps his team more than just his stat line would indicate is the only point being made
Rasmussen with a goal and an assist
Cholowski with an assist
