    Yeah I mean considering last year when he was injured a bunch and this year when he was injured a bunch, there were only limited times when I thought that maybe he didn't belong at the moment (though, it wasn't like a "send him down" scenario, just like an, "oof, gotta work on that" scenario). Dude can play and with a full year playing good minutes with good linemates next year I think he can encroach that 60 point mark, and by the following season be our go-to guy.

    Laczynski will probably be a RW, if Laughton stays he'll be the LW on the checking line, otherwise Rubtsov.

    As far as Patrick, he skates well enough already, but a summer working on strength, conditioning, skating technique, watch out!
    I mean the guy hasn't been able to build up core strength for two years, and he's at an age where he could really add strength quickly.

    Yeah, Lindblom seems to be exactly as advertised. I like when that happens.

    He achieved health, and he didn't even have to go back to the WHL to do it.

    His vision/awareness combined with his ability to use his speed when needed is going to be just a treat to watch over the next several years.

    Since the start of March Patrick has matched Hischier in p/60 at five on five, both are at 2.07. I know given the sample size it's almost irrelevant, but still it's nice to see.

    Edit: Before people start ****ting on Hischier to somehow make Patrick look better, just don't. That sort of nonsense belongs on main boards.

    See I like Jake in the 2nd line. I think Nolan becomes more of a shooter next year.

    And TK's speed and willingness to shoot is good for Couts and G.

    Dig this for sure. Hopefully one (or more) of Rubstov, Ratcliffe, Frost, or NAK bust in to the lineup as well and have an impact.

    With that top six, assuming these guys improve and don't regress, I think we can safely deal Simmer to the highest bidder, even if it isn't exactly what we want, and hope a youngin can play a third line role at a good level. Not mandatory and I usually don't suggest this sort of thing, but we got a ton of talent and if Simmer isn't in a top six scoring role he doesn't have the same value to Philly that he does to other teams. Just my thoughts.

    Unlike the Schenns....the Patricks have good hockey genes. Hated the Rangers and still do but I respected his uncle James as a player.

    Nope, not working.

    Hakstol would be tempted to bench the whole second line to teach more lessons.
