Actually meant Rasmussen’s goal, but Geekie is killing it as well.
It shows improvement, but parts of both seasons we know he was playing with a bad wrist. Exciting to see him at 100%.
Oops, I thought you were responding to the gif. Yeah nice shot, top corner hard to stop
Ras just scored to put TC up 1-0
Ras pots another to make it 2-1 TC.
Just dominant. Pierre McGuire is gonna love him.
Rad assisted on TC’s third goal putting him at 2 + 1 so far.
Well, looks like his wrist is fully healed.
Hat trick and an assist, basically dominating the WHL playoffs.
Ras gets the hat trick with an ENG.
Holy **** Ras.
I'm loving it. He's gonna make the team next year, this is getting ridiculous.
Gotta admit, I didn't like the pick, now I am eating my words. Keep it up kid.
Highlights for Ras’s game
Highlights: Americans (4) at Royals (1) – WHL Network
His pass at 2:02 was sick
That pass at 1:15 weren't bad either.
Shocker. Internet bandwagonning gets another pick wrong?
Im excited the way he is playing but let's not jump the gun here. He has to develop into a really good NHL player and to disprove people here he will have to outperform Vilardi, Necas etc in the NHL.
looks like he is very good with redirecting the puck , now we need to get someone who like to feed him with it
Remains to be seen. Necas is still ahead.
I wish that guy who did the Boqvist vs Hughes and Svechnikov vs Zadina vids would do Rasmussen vs Vilardi. Let's be honest it's closer than many want to admit. I wanted Vilardi too, he has fantastic hands. I'm thinking Rasmussen takes the skating category easily.
It is going to be hilarious when and if Rasmussen is a Calder candidate next year. He's going to have a great opportunity on a terrible team afterall.
Wait, did you want us to draft Martin Necas? Haven't seen you say that.
I personally wish we drafted Vilardi and haven't shut up about it.
Not sure how they can be compared right now. Necas’ stats aren’t super impressive but totally different leagues.
Not sure I’ve ever seen a prospect up their production so much from the reg season to the playoffs. Has he been hanging out with Franzen?
If nothing else, should give him a lot of confidence going into camp next year.
Yeah crazy. Axel Holmstrom did something similar when he was in the SHL He literally broke the SHL record for playoff points by a junior player (was previously held by Daniel and Henrik Sedin). Holmstrom had 20 points in 44 regular season games, and then scored 18 points in 15 playoff games.
I did not like the Rasmussen pick at all when it was announced. I would love to be proven wrong because it is great for the Wings. I want the Wings to do well a lot more than the need to be right about my opinions on hockey moves.
KH quotes from December 30th on point:
“He could have waited till the end of the season, but he was tired of playing in pain,” Holland said Saturday. “We decided on surgery now because on the short end, he’ll be back some time in late Janurary; on the long end, sometime in February."
“He’s hoping to get back and find his game and help his team go on a long playoff run. Having the surgery now allows him to do that, and to go into the offseason healthy and ready for a good summer in the gym.”
Am I the only one slightly disappointed? I watch all the Rasmussen highlights as they come in, and I don't think I've seen him score a goal I thought was exciting. His passing is improving, so I'll give him that (although I wish it were a bigger part of his game). Still, this has got to be one of the least exciting 3 ppg runs of all time.
Tip-in goals really just leave me cold. I only watch hockey for entertainment, and I want to see high-speed, high-skill offensive hockey, not "I'm standing here screening and... aha! you didn't tie up my stick! we score!" So many of Rasmussen's goals involve him barely moving. On fuzzy WHL feeds, sometimes you only know Rasmussen scored because he celebrates. There are no other discernable clues that a play is even happening.
I mean, I appreciate that he's very skilled and doing well. But I wish this wasn't such a big part of the game today, because it's arguably the least entertaining part. Although I guess there's shotblocking. But we drafted defensemen who do that with the picks after Rasmussen, so I guess the Wings organization has covered their bases.
Vilardi? Come on. Please.
I wanted us to draft Martin Necas.
