    OT: but Unanimous amongst all teams that he was pretty much going 1. So just let him develop.

    Dylan looks great.

    Great to see Cozens working on his game and dominating. Definitely glad he didn’t get thrown to the wolves by being forced into the NHL too soon. Here is hoping he has a great U20’s and continues his development curve into the later part of the season.

    Where does he fit in for Team Canada? Big role somewhat like Sam did? Small role/depth guy?

    I keep seeing him as RW1/2 on various speculation rosters. Seems like not the starring role but certainly an important part of the offense.

    Team Canada is always deep at center. I still think he’s a NHL center but he should get good reps at wing.

    Pretty nuts. What was the knock on this kid? Low hockey IQ?

    Strength, mostly, and own-zone play. Typical for an 18 year old forward prospect. Get stronger, pay attention defensively.

    He's still not what I'd call a super high hockey IQ player. He plays Jeff Carter's game: shoot first center. Behind Eichel, that's perfect. I think Botterill sees Jordan Staal, and I think he's right.

    That's not true.His 200 ft game was his asset along with size and skating.The knock on him was his IQ which is BS.Was the player I was hoping for at 8.Going to be a dominating power forward once his gets bigger

    This kid is a stud, I was jumping when we had a chance at him or Zegras. I think Cozens will be ready earlier and the better player than Zegras. Cozens makes the team next year and immediately shores up the top 6.

    I wouldn't mind if Botts traded Mitts and defender or one Mitts to get a guy like Tuch or Anderson, then our lines would look even more interesting and we would have a more physical team.

    One game later, 10 shots on goal, picks up 0+1 (5v5 primary assist) in a 4-3 SO loss.

    These SOG numbers are pretty bat **** crazy. You have to be all over the offensive zone to get 21 shots in 2 games.

    This should be a no brainer for Dylan.

    I mean... I'm not a big stats guy so I don't have pages of sources to cite... but I'm pretty sure the limited minutes that Mitts has played in the last year or two has been more "sheltered secondary scoring line" than "2C" in the traditional sense (which it would probably be more appropriate to refer to as the "ROR role" going forward since people seem to be stuck there). He just hasn't stepped up yet so people assume he's getting crushed.

    I like those lines and they're very believable. Cozens gets some offensive firepower in Olofsson and all around help from grizzled vet Reinhart (better linemates than most newbies get here usually). Asplund has been reliable in his time this year, we'd get to see what Tage learned in Rochester, and I like Mitts getting time on the wing. TOI would probably lean heavily on the 1st (main offense) and 4th (main defense) lines, with the middle 6 lines being very flexible in where and how much they play.

    This display is prettier as it makes Cozens look like the #1 center.
