    Nah. Theyre pretty much equal. Frost has more high end potential IMO but Poehling shown really good things. Ppg in the NCAA as a freshman is no small feat. Hes about .02 ppg off Casey Mittlestatd.

    In term of offensive impact, Mittelstadt is miles ahead, imo.

    Offensively the better talent but not miles ahead. Poehling has offensive talent but plays a pretty solid two way game at center so his offensive abilities fly under the radar.

    Poehling style of play is how you win hockey games and has a lot of value

    Good news, hope Jackson stays as they are really good together and it would at least leave SCSU with a quality top line.

    You win hockey games by scoring goals. Cut the crap.

    False, you win hockey game by OUTSCORING your opponent. Big difference

    Not as much as you'd like to think. The organization has for a long time lionized "two-way" guys like Danault and spend undue hand-wringing on the fact that Galchenyuk needs a lot of work defensively. This mindset is getting the team nowhere and ignores the fact that the 'two-way' guys they like are really one-way guys as well, only in reverse. Danault is responsible in his own end, yes, but he is fair to mediocre offensively and there is not much the team can do to make him any better than a 0.5 ppg guy. Where Galch, Drouin, and others are concerned, I'd much rather the team take a shackles off a bit and let them try to create offense more. Given a team that scores two or less in more than half its games, I think a bit more scoring trumps the misplaced need for more dump it in the corner.

    The whole mantra of playing not to lose and building teams that try to win games 2-1 isn't taking us anywhere.

    Nope. You win hockey games by outscoring the other team. Cut the crap.

    I think the knock on Galchenyuk, first and foremost, was the lack of effort. That was more apparent on the defensive side of things, but applied to every facet of the game. Lately, he's much more engaged and it shows offensively AND defensively. Even for scorers, you want your players to be engaged. Nothing wrong with asking that of the kid.

    You also win by preventing goals from going in your own net. Poehling plays a 200’ game.

    The thing with Poehling that gives him his upside is that he has alot better offensive traits than you think. His size/speed combo is very good, we know he's going to play a 200 foot game, displays good passing and vision as a playmaker, and he's going to go to the net and score some ugly goals. But we also saw his skill level on that goal he scored... He also has shown that he can wire it, though his shot is currently inconsistant and not used very often. If he can continue developing and gaining confidence in his shot and skill, he can take his offensive game to a whole new level.

    Man if ever the Habs need a player to pan out it’s Ryan Poehling.

    What were his other options other than staying in St-Cloud? How long can he stay in junior?

    It was a heck of a year for him, doubles his goals, triples his assists. Next year though he will be in a much tougher spot as he's going to have to lead the way if Schuldt and Jackson leave.

    He could have played 1 year in the dub since he wouldn't play as an overager.

    I think we need high end talent at center more than size.

    In fact I just want high end talent. Give us two lines with Danault level player at center and Radulov level play driver on the wing, and the offense will be fine.

    I always had him ready for our line-up as a 20 or 21 year old. At that point.. Weber is 34/35 and Price is 32/33. Draft picks this year would be 19/20. If we don’t show potential to contend at that point, trade Price and Weber for more youth. Gallagher would be our oldest asset at age 27/28

    So Poehling's team announced their new head coach, Brett Larson who was an assistant coach with UMD the team that just won the National Championship (after losing in the finals the previous year) he coached Laval's Jordan Boucher years back in the USHL.

    And interesting side note, the coach of the Swedish National Team interviewed for the job, Rikard Gronborg
