    This post is... what?

    What about all the Quebecois players who likely grew up as Habs fans who score against Montreal? You could say a lot of bad things about Staal, and I have, but this is one of the worst takes I've seen in a long time.

    Love this kid, Timmins finally did it right. Newhook would have also been a great pick too. Wish we did something to have both of them.

    Would be the first Hab since Dryden to win it.

    We've had a few finalists at least, most recently Gallagher if I'm not mistaken.

    edit: yep. Had no idea he was so close.

    From Toffoli's article in the player's Tribune

    "I mean, you’ve all seen what Cole Caufield is doing, right?

    He’s special, man. For real. He’s got that it factor. I’ve only seen it in a few guys in the league. He’s got it. And he’s also — no lie here — the funniest kid I’ve ever met. He’s always cracking jokes at practice and loves to laugh at himself. He’s just so excited to be in the NHL, you can see it. He still gets all wide-eyed when Carey or Webs talks to him, and I can see him get a little nervous when he’s talking to Corey Perry. I swear he’s going to say, “Yes, sir, Mr. Perry,” one day. "

    That’s so good to hear, and exactly how I pictured his character.

    The last line about Perry is :laugh:

    So the kids got 4 goals in 10 NHL games

    From the 2019 class He's already caught up to Cozens and Zegras in way less games (obviously)
    And the 4 ahead of him are Kakko 19 goals in 114 games, Jack Hughes 18 goals in 117 games, Kirby who has 10 in 82, and Nils Hoglander whos got 12 in 51

    The race is on :D

    I think it's a no brainer to have him in the lineup for the playoffs

    he should but what vet sits for him? I think he will get in at some point though. If it were me he would be playing every playoff game, cause I don't care about beating the leafs, I care about building up CC, KK, Romanov, Suzuki, Evans for the coming years.

    The kid can score. I hope he never forgets that shoot from anywhere mentality.

    Any of these players should sit so that Caufield can play:

    • Armia
    • Byron
    • Lehkonen
    • Tatar
    Ducharme is a bad coach, but he's not that bad that he'd sit one of our best offensive players just because he's a rookie. (I don't think he is at least).

    When we picked up Staal, a few posters said he'd eat some of KK's minutes. I figured they were crazy...

    I won't predict anything in terms of how we will run things anymore. It seems crazy to bench CC but we might do it. And we probably will bench KK. I have no faith in our mgmt.

    I fully expect KK to sit for Staal during the playoffs, but that's for another thread.

    Caufield brings something other players on the team don't (being able to score). I guess I wouldn't be shocked if he sat, but I don't expect him to.

    There is a legitimate possibility he leads his draft class in goals after next season. :laugh:

    Is it timmins or churla.

    Timmins was head of scouting overseeing amateur and professional. Churla was responsible for amateur.

    I love that when he shoots it, no matter where he shoots from, you can tell it’s f***ing dangerous. Even when the goalie saves it it’s rarely a clean save.

    Since his arrival in the big show, he's tied for first in shots on net for a rookie with Kaprisov...who's not realllly a true rookie.

    Gallagher absolutely should have won it his rookie year...3 points behind Huberdeau & Yakupov in rookie scoring and much more of an impact on his team than Huberdeau or Saad (the other Finalist) had...
