    At least this one is just blatantly terrible. I think someone thought Imagine Avs was cool.

    Looking at Pettersson and Heiskanen and ...

    TSN: "Nolan Patrick has been one of the real disappointments among a slew of them for the Flyers. He has just 11 points on the year. Patrick, 20, has just two assists (and no goals) in his last 23 games. Perhaps a trip to the minors is in order."

    Didn't see that one coming.

    Patrick looks bad, underwhelming, or is just invisible more often than not when I watch the Flyers.

    Man, you gotta wonder if all those early injuries have broken Patrick's spirit a little bit. Hopefully he can reset mentally over the off season.

    A number around here did. Patrick will be a NHL player and probably a solid one in time, but that top-end NHL center that people were claiming was never there.

    Who do you think will become the better NHL center, Patrick or Kotkaniemi?

    I'd not trade Makar for Patrick right now and I'm pretty sure we'd have picked Patrick with that same lottery pick...so it's very possible that in the end, losing the lottery was winning.

    I think Kotka will. Patrick seems J. Stall-esque to me. A good player but definitely not an elite one.

    Kotka... I see low to mid tier #1C in Kotka.

    I love Kotka, I don't see huge upside but maybe similar to a guy like Couture? Production wise anyways.

    To me this year is skewing scoring numbers, but if it holds add 10-20%. I see Kotka as a 60-70 point offensive prime guy. Not an elite scorer, but certainly top line.

    Top players from the 2017 draft this year. Lots of reshuffling.

    Hischier - 39gp - 29pts- 0.74 pts/gm
    Heiskanen - 45gp - 20pts - 0.44 pts/gm
    Thomas - 37gp - 14pts - 0.38 pts/gm
    Chytil - 42gp - 14pts - 0.33 pts/gm
    Rasmussen - 41gp - 13pts - 0.32 pts/gm
    Patrick - 37gp - 11pts - 0.30 pts/gm
    Mittelstadt - 43gp - 12pts - 0.28 pts/gm

    Yeah Philly would just wait until UFA for Varly. No sense in giving up on a former #2 so soon.

    Mittlestadt looks like he was brought into the league too soon. Haven't watched much Sabres this year but I watched them tonight, and he's so weak on the puck and along the boards.

    Skinner scored his 30th tonight.

    Yeah, the same thing could be said about other skilled players like Jost and Patrick. They should kept them all in their minor leagues to marinate for a few years before playing in NHL.

    How the hell did McLeod not get suspended? Even if it was a pure mistake you can't just let that slide.

    Ref didn't write it up as a legit punch. Said McLeod punches like a pansy, and it didn't hurt.

    Would you punish someone with such a flagrant disregard for authority? He does what he ****ing wants, deal with it. I had great fun reading the main board thread on the subject. Hopefully a decent team decide they need some truculence and he gets one last shot.
