    Didn’t notice Lauko that much during the US game. Some of that is attributed to the US having the puck quite a bit and Czechs using their top line as much as possible.

    JCRO At least I'm safe inside my mind

    Pretty much.

    I noticed him one shift where he received a breakout pass and completely turn on the jets in the blink of an eye and almost turned the defender and went for the net. The defender was able to push him enough wide though to force a shot outside.

    Also saw him giving a little bit of stick work. Not sure if that's apart of his game but he definitely got under the US players skin.

    The top line of the Czechs, IMO, was so overused and exhausted last night, watched them live, sat 6 rows behind their bench and their top guns gasping for air every time they came off. I understand their depth isn`t there but.....

    It was a nice goal. From the games that I saw him play, he still needs work on his skating, has to get faster. His defensive play is above average for a junior player and his face skills are way above average. Lets get him signed ASAP.

    I'd say the Bruins have drafted and developed well in the past few years. At least they didn't trade away their Seguins.

    In fairness to Lauko, he's got another year at the WJC, and could break out next year. (I kind of liked Daugavins.)

    I actually noticed him a handful times when he'd use his speed to drive the puck into the offensive zone. The issue was that he always seemed to be by himself and the other Czech forwards would be behind the play. Czechs didn't have much offensive possession, so it was hard to get a feel for his offensive game.

    Seems like teams at this year's WJC have struggled with offense more so than usual.

    I have a feeling shen will be one of those guys that won’t be joining the organization for a few years. Seems like he’s gonna want to play in the khl over the ahl.

    Was very impressed with Lauko in pre-season. Czech coach could have spread the talent out a bit.

    Because almost all Russian players prefer the khl to the ahl, especially if they are in a nice city like ufa is

    And there’s nothing wrong with that....at the young age that Pavel is. But, at some point, if he has NHL aspirations as most Russians do, he’ll want to follow his agent’s advice and turn pro in an NHL organization and join its development program, even if it means some AHL time.

    Anisimov and Namesnikov of the Rangers are a few who spent time in the AHL.

    I never said there was something wrong with it. I just said he might be over there for like 5-6 more years before he comes here, since most Russians don’t spend more than 1-2 years in the ahl before going back to Russia. Koko went 2 I think. Shipachyov I think went about 2...games. I’d prefer he stays there until he’s nhl ready the way panarin did and radulov did. I don’t want him to come over still needing time in the ahl. Because if that time ends up being a little longer than we thought he might go back and not return.

    There are others who did their North American Training in the AHL prepping for the NHL.

    It all depends upon the development needs of the individual, not the theory that Russians prefer to advance their careers by staying home.

    And it also depends to some degree on the role they are going to have back home. My guess is at this point Shen wants to play 15 min a night and really doesn't care where it is. I would think he has to be pretty frustrated with his role in the KHL this year

    Shen doesn't speak a word of English, also.

    I agree with what you're saying but Radulov played his junior hockey in Canada. He was already a good nhler before he went back to Russia

    I know there have been some Studnicka trade rumors around the OHL lately and that it was going to happen after the WJC trade freeze. But the Generals acquired Brett Neumann today, so it looks to me like they are going to load up for a run.

    I don't expect a Jack trade.

    Yeah, he seems like a character. Started to fall in love with him as a prospect since preseason. Can not wait to see more of him

    Lauko has that Pasta type personality where it seems like he just loves to play the game
