    I really hope this is the real Scherbak. If it is, we are in for a treat.

    I’ve always liked this kid, from his first interviews in french, he was a riot. I hope it works out for him.

    The kid has a ton of talent and is indeed a riot. With some seasoning and strengthening, he'll be a good one.

    I remember when this was WTK's avatar for the longest time. Nicely done.

    On another level, I was at Sherbak's last home game in Laval and I saw the goal he scored in that game, entering the zone on his left and near the top of the faceoff circle, he slowed his pace a little while dragging his feet to the left, causing the D to shift with him and the goalie to move and all of sudden, he unleashed a laser of a shot that hit the top right corner. He has that kind of ability.

    Tonight he looked better than 90% of the lineup did since the beginning of the season. But it's just one night ...

    Sherbak look nervous, but not out of place. It will be interesting to see how he progresses over the next few games ... and this applies to McCarron, too.

    If either one of them can contribute meaningfully on this team, it would be a welcome edition. But they still have to prove it, and they haven’t done enough... yet.

    Haven't seen him in bare legs this year but last year he had pretty skinny legs. Hope he bulked up a bit over last season. He needs that lower body strength.

    He reminds me of an athletic Michael Cera.

    I hope he's here to stay.

    He's put his time in the AHL and he's 21 years old now. He has the size, speed and skills to be an NHL player, but consistency will be key.

    Hopefully he's given a chance.

    It was reported that when he was first cut at camp, he didn't take it well. But he didn't let it drag him down. He realized that he's at a crossroads in the sense that if he wants to make it in the NHL, there are things he needs to work on.

    Lefebvre mentioned that this year, when he joined the Rocket camp, he could tell Scherbak had a different mindset. He also noticed that he was doing things off the ice that showed he was taking it seriously.

    And it shows.

    Loved his effort tonight, as others mentioned hopefully he can get some PP time soon.

    Still hope he can get stronger, he was getting pushed around a bit but the kid is still only 21 so he'll be fine.

    Scherbak has talent and personality. Hopefully, he won't be traded.

    We love trading talent and personality for CHaracter.

    Hopefully he sticks, and him and Galchenyuk climb up in the lineup together

    I liked his game yesterday. You see the potential. He needs to have more confidence. You feel like he's restraining himself. Let it free Nikita.

    Thought he was very good the little he played yesterday...

    I'd like to see what McCarron and Scherbak could do in an extended look.

    Hemsky is out and Mitchell is done...start the transition.

    Next up to be out...Tomas Plekanec

    Something seemed to click for Sherback since the start of the season. From dominating AHL to this game, hopefully it continues

    Not a fan of Lefebvre, but maybe it’s because of him that something finally clicked with Scherbak. Some type of discussion.

    Also the kid needs to bulk up. He got destroyed a couple of times yesterday.

    Really liked his game last night. I just hope CJ gives him some PP time.

    And people say we have development problems. Scherbak's only issue is he needs to bulk up to avoid the injuries he has been facing since turning pro. He has the size, skill, and skating package to be a dynamic player for us. His injuries held back his development.

    AHL stats: 23pts/48 games and 41pts/66 games. Lets hope he stays healthy!

    Also, I thought we tried him at center in his 1st season? Is he worth a look at center? Or is he a winger who plays opposite side of where he shoots?

    He has talent and for a team lacking big time talent, he stood out.
    Hopefully guys like Shaw/Gallagher/Plekanec take a back seat and let our talent play.
