    They have a week, but there has been no reporting, which is the odd thing. Everything has been about Kaprizov, but it's odd they haven't talked about Bourdias, especially given the year he has had.

    Edit: Aha, trying to find it in Athletic, but Russo did comment on Bourdias in the Athletic. Knew I thought I heard something.

    I don't think we're missing much in Boudrais.

    I'm assuming the kid can't skate, because otherwise signing him should be a no-brainer.

    I spent 5 minutes looking at what I could find on him. From that 5mins I've concluded that he:

    - can't skate
    - can't fight

    He's just big.

    That's too bad because 6'5" 225 and right handed is always nice to have

    I can’t believe with his size and scoring touch, they won’t give him a shot. Who are we planning on signing, that we can’t believe give him some run?

    I wouldn't read too much into his scoring touch. It's likely a result of being overaged and oversized in a kids league. He was also likely helped out by playing with Sokolov, who was one of the top Russian juniors this year. If you're a big guy that can't skate and can't play physical, there's no place for you in the pros.

    I don't want to obsess over a 6th-round pick, but why did Minnesota draft Boudrias in the first place? He was an overager, they knew what they were getting. He's a power forward who can pitch in offensively, in a league where the average player is far below his height & weight. This was known then and is known now. Despite this advantage, he did have a good season. So were there personnel changes in Minnesota from Summer 2018 to now? I can't seem to rationalize not giving him a chance in the minors considering they decided to questionably draft him 2 years ago

    EDIT: I feel like management expected him to develop as a skater, but he was a big immobile PF then. Did they really think that would change dramatically?

    That’s the purpose of late round picks. Take a chance on some long shots. This one didn’t work out, as most 6th rounders don’t. Nothing wrong with it.

    Here's a highlight tape of Ivan Lodnia. Decent player, but probably tops out as a good AHL guy.

    Great pass at 3:38. Had some great stretch passes, too. Yeah, I'm expecting him to be a good AHL guy or a 4th line NHL guy. He's not big, he's not overly fast, but he does have good puck skill and is relatively shifty. Might be a tweener? Or maybe he'll surprise us all and keep improving beyond what we think he will. A man can dream!

    He has a very weird skating stride, nice to see more power behind it this year. It used to look like he was skating in sand, not by speed, but by his style.
