    Stauffer really, really wanted us to take Guhle.

    He was pumping his tires leading into the draft.

    Good thing we didn't take him cause we already have someone like Guhle in Samorukov

    He also said Price was a mistake for MTL

    He was sputtering and pretty much crying when we took Holloway

    Let's hope he is right about Holloway. Looks good to me. I don't get too excited though until I see a player come in and play in the NHL. Different ball game.

    No argument there. He sounded like an idiot that night of the draft to be honest.

    I was just saying that he wasn't the only one to flip on Holloway. A whole bunch of folks on this board changed their mind on him from even as recently as a month ago, but that's how it goes with prospects who have a lot of up and down trajectory. I hope these folks don't flip back if he doesn't immediately light it up in the AHL.

    What's up with that Hobey Baker poll? lol. Some dude playing for the army team is running away with it. It's almost like he has an...army...of people voting for him :sarcasm:

    The Voting Page for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award

    Among guys being voted for in a normal way, Cole Caufield is running away with the lead. Holloway can't compete with that name recognition unfortunately.

    I was lurking on the habs board and they started to vote because Caufield at that time was sitting at 2%

    Vote early vote often

    Ah ... haha got it.

    Fun for us all to have strong, passionate opinions but the internet age can sometimes embolden us to think one's an expert, informed opinion without any basis to support it. Holloway's given us all reason to be bullish on his selection and with chance to see him play this is an easy guy to cheer for (no shortcuts in his well rounded game and highly coachable and dedicated by reports). But always wise to be pragmatic about prospects as history reminds how difficult it is to make and succeed in the NHL.

    Just had a monster shift. Outmuscled several players, strong on the puck, and drew a penalty.

    guhle would have been a good pick. But I am happy with how Holloway is playing

    Seeing how he is playing, he was the right pick

    I remember Pierre saying the same about Magnus Paajarvi during the WJC. Pierre is a pervert.

    I would give him a cup of coffee when he's done this year, and then send him to Bakersfield.

    So have him quarantine in Canada for 2 weeks just to get sent back to bakersfield?

    That sounds like a bad idea.

    Holloway with two assists. He has been a dominant force in the 2nd. Stole a puck then was stoned on a breakaway, been driving play in the offensive zone every shift, made a beauty pass to Caufield no the PP that almost resulted in a goal then got the primary assist on the end of the PP.
    Also, in the 1st, he jumped some guy who punched his teammate. Love seeing that from him.

    Edit: and almost scored on his last shift. I hope somebody puts up a shift by shift video, it's a treat to watch.
    And Caufield just scored. The Holloway/Caufield duo has to be the best in college hockey.

    28 29 points in less than 16 games. Completely exceeding my expectations.
