    I like Patrik... a lot. I love that we won him in the draft lottery. I love that he loves our city. I look forward to watching him mature into the best scorer in the league.

    My Laine jersey just came in and I'll be wearing it tonight. Hope he has a great game!

    Anyone else find his one timer awkward compared to most? Especially the follow through.

    I think it's part of what makes his shot so difficult to process for goalies - the high flex on his stick combined with the length of his stick and the speed at which the puck comes off it makes it incredibly hard to "guess" where it's going. There's so little time between release and a shot on goal for NHL players, that goalies can't REALLY react to it - they have to react to where they think it's going to go.

    Usually to late to do anything about it when you've guessed wrong with Laine's shot.

    Not really tbh, maybe I need to pay attention more. The puck is usually in the net before his follow through and I'm to busy doing a happy dance.

    I've noticed him whiff a bit lately though, those are kind of funny.

    This. What the hell. I think he would have easily shot 102+ mph.

    Did he not get very close to that at the AS skills competition last year? My memory says 101.7 mph, but it could be wrong.

    Yes. It was something in 101-102 range. Probably 101.7mph like you said. I think, because of added mass and all, that he would have done even better now.

    That is scary.
    Even the goalie was prepared for it.

    The goal in Chicago when he undressed basically tge whole team.
    Wrist shot from a distance. Goalie was set also.

    Great weapon.
    Hope he gets to 36 goals this year.

    I'd like to see the faces of those poor d-mens when they realize that Laine had all the time to cock his weapon and they are the only obstacle between the shot and the target:laugh:
    That was a BOMB!!

    That was a monster of a shot. Anyone up for calculating the velocity of it? I got around 110mph by approximating the distance and amount of frames thr puck travelled, but that’s just a rough estimate.

    I've seen it dozens of times and it still amazes me what a ****ing Howitzer that is. If I were a Dman playing PK against him I would never EVER try to block that. I'd probably just go out of the way, do my best imitation of a windshield wiper with my stick and hope he misses.

    That shot is something else... overall good game by Laine yesterday and his first multi-point in a while.

    Honestly ( saw first 2 periods) he looked good 5v5 from what i saw, he and ehlers got chemistry oddly enough, sometimes they overpassed it and laine was passing alot too but damn i like the chances they created. Refreshing to see and pleasantly surprised.

    Yea mixing it up with Copp in the middle and they got softer match ups and had great ice time in the 1st period until the penalty parade in the second period. The line looked good and Laine looked much better at evens. Seems like he had more room on the ice last night.

    The shot was special and did everyone notice how the commentator said Buff had a huge smile on his face? Nice bounce back game keep it rolling boys.

    Insane shot on that PP goal. I'm constantly amazed at his ability to shoot the puck.

    Really liked the rest of his game last night as well - even on the road, that line should get some favorable matchups that allows Laine to feast.

    Yea honestly who cares about labels if you are getting the ice time and playing with decent talent. Softer match ups is a great thing. Most teams with our skill run a top 9 anyways it’s just now we have transitioned our 3rd line into a scoring line vs a checking line.

    Roll with it for another game at least.

    I talked today about hockey, Laine and his shooting with my woman companion who is neither interested nor knowledgeable about these things. I played that goal highlight video for her as a demonstration explaining what happens there. She was amazed by it. Sort of eyeopener moment to her. Beauty of his shooting can be seen even without any kind enthusianism toward hockey. (People can get annoyed about continuous stream of Laine news in Finland if they don't follow hockey or sports generally.)

    Hopefully line changes bring more of this.
