Last night Sam Gagner returned to the London Knights line-up after several games out with a slight concussion,and he made a statement with 2G (including the GWG ot winner) +2A as the Knights beat Sault Ste. Marie 4-3 in OT....it was a statement because PAT KANE dod not play due to the flu....yes Kostitsyn was also brilliant to work with Gagner,but Gagner proved to me that it wasjust Pat Kane being on his line that got him so many points...he could step up and be more go to when required as with Kane out...he is worthy of going top 5 by himself! HOWEVER--last night KYLE TURRIS demolished Victoria as he led the Burnaby Express to an 8-4 win over their Coastal Division rival (Victoria came into the game 17 points higher in the standings than Burnaby in the Division) --TURRIS had 3G+4A =7points =WOW!!! LOGAN COUTURE also returned to the OTtawa 67's lineup and had 2G+1A as the 67's pounded 51 shots at the Mississauga goal in a 5-2 victory..we'll see if coutur plays well down the home stretch and into the playoffs if Ottawa hangs on to a playoff spot..With his illness and injuries,it has been hard to get a read on his progress or lack of this season... ANGELO ESPOSITO--berated and downgraded because he did not put up the points expected this year (perhaps not his fault since Patrick Roy chose not to make him the #1 centre and go to guy(rather centering only their 2nd line)--also had a good game =2 goals last night in a Ramparts win...however given the spectacular shows put on by Turris and Gagner--once again Espo pales in comparison (though to be fair--he doesn't have the same top line exposure for his team)... Bottom line--the CENTRES in this draft are better than the scouts orginally gave them credit for---no Crosby' or Malkin's in terms of power,speed and puck skill shot ,passing ,hockey sense in a single package--BUT these guys have some of these attributes (albeit differently comboed) and have potential to be top 1 or 2 line centres as pros ... The other candidate for the top 5 centres in the draft probaby not getting enough ranking is Joakim Andersson--I just have a hunch about this guy...the line on him was he had to work on his accleration/skating but that all the other parts of the game were there including him being a good 2-way player--he scored 4 g in 4GP at the 5Nations U-18 in Most Czech Rep and certainly he has the size on the other 4 centres listed above...the scouts also said skating was the issue with Kopitar in his draft--the scouts have been proven wrong--as I said,just a hunch but Andersson willbe good... Though I still insist KYLE TURRIS is the bomb! A very special talent...when he plays his "A game he can just kill the opposition in a points explosion...scarey talent!
