    The guy got beat out by the youngest player of all teams in this qualifier. Then Barabanov entering the picture next season likely. Plus he has done nothing to impress management in this extended season training camp. Its not looking good for him actually. Gauthier either.

    Hope he stays healthy... small, waterbug..hope he stays out of the train tracks. Look forward to watching him. Adds another level of excitement (the opportunity to watch a young draft pick).

    Doesn't strike me as the type to get run over. He's clearly highly skilled. There's a reason the small high skilled guys never get run over, they're shifty. They've been small their whole lives, it's not new to them. I think Robertson welcomes physicality though. I don't think it'll be an issue. Looking forward to seeing him grow as the series progresses

    Well Robertson never tries to avoid contact so I don't think it's as ingrained in him as small shifty forwards like Gaudreau or Marner. He just has to play and learn what he can get away with at the NHL level

    Agreed. That's why I added in that I think he welcomes it. Certainly more than the above players mentioned. You're exactly right, it'll be the learning curve of what he can and can't do at this level and pace. But I think he's pretty hard nosed for his size and will get it figured out sooner than later

    Still worth keeping. We utilised LTIR space the whole year, it's good to have capable NHL depth when injuries inevitably occur.

    Robertson had a good first period. The line of Robertson - Kerfoot - Kapanen is dynamic, and all 3 are chippy.

    Neither Barabanov or Robertson are centres, so Gauthier's spot is fine.
