    I can’t believe how much more explosive his skating is than when I watched him last year. We could have 2 defenseman on team Canada this year (WJC)

    I thought he looked impressive at the WJC camp last year. Good puck handler. Hope he still pays attention to defense. We are going to have a lot of good puck handlers on the blue line coming up, and there's nothing wrong with that, but we need ROR, and maybe Hunt/FJo to be solid defenders in years to come. Menell and Addison are average at best in that area.

    Top scoring U19 Dman in the WHL right now.

    Boldy assist. Forechecked a puck loose and it bounced to Mayhew who had a wide open net. Baribeau knocked out of the game. Was clipped by opposing player- seemed innocent, then he collapsed to the ice. I think it's his knee. Very strange, as it seemed like it took a few seconds for his body to give out on him.

    Wasn’t sure if he was going to get the assist for that. Good to see

    Actually don't know if he has got credit yet. It was pretty clear from the replay that he knocked it loose - the announcer thought so too. Some pretty ugly hockey this year, though. Missing 4-5 good players that went up to the taxi squad makes a difference.

    Definitely got one this time. Dewar from Addison and Boldy. My three favorite players on Iowa...maybe ROR, too.

    Boldy looks like a natural on the PP. Very cool under pressure.

    He’s just plug in play where Rask is playing rn on the PP, IMO.

    Agreed. He could either play bumper, or on the right boards on the PP. Quick, efficient hands. Good decision maker. Good shot. Eventually he will be a good board player, but that might take a while.

    Encouraging to see Boldy stepping right in and contributing a ppg in the AHL.

    He looks very good already. IQ is obvious, and seems to be a low maintenance player. Doesn't overhandle the puck, but has a lot of subtle, quick skill. Sometimes he looks a bit awkward skating, but other times shows flashes of speed, and some good edges. I think he could play in the NHL right now, but if you bring him up you want to make sure that he gets some TOI with either Fiala or Kap. We've got grinders...we need him for his offensive skill, whether it be shooting or passing.

    I've been watching a bit more of Jason Robertson lately and he seems like a decent NHL comparable for Matt Boldy. Both similar size, great shots, above average skating, etc.

    Robertson has a better shot. Boldy more puck skills

    Robertson is not known for his skating. There are some similarities, otherwise. Boldy's skating looks awkward at times, but very good at others. I think he will be a good skater in a year or two, with nice edges.

    Boldy with a primary assist. Fed the slot from down low. One more period to go.

    Since the Wild have clinched with 9 games to go, why not call up Boldy to get a few games under his belt? I think he's earned it.

    Is the Iowa season over? Who would he play over? Isn't the thinking that he will be on the team for the playoffs once the Iowa season is over.

    Sit Rask.

    Zuccarello - Bonino - Kaprizov
    Greenway - EE - Foligno
    Boldy - Hartman - Fiala
    Parise - Sturm - Johansson

    Good point. Maybe move Bonino back to C, and Boldy to #4RW?:confused: Hate to mess with a 4th line that is doing well, but once we clinch a spot, maybe? Where I'd really like to see him is on the other wing with Fiala, but it takes time to build chemistry, and at this point we don't have many games left. Can't mess with the GEEF's, or Kap/Zucc.

    All I want is for him to get a taste of the NHL, to give him an idea of what he needs to work on over the summer. Since he doesn't play C, he doesn't scratch the itch we have.

    Throw Johansson between Zucc and Kap if you’re going to go that route

    Still have Bjugstad though. Think the best plan is let him play through the AHL season and get some time in the playoffs. Love the idea with him and Fiala on the same line

    Bjugstad can help Rask on popcorn duty...or someone can develop a phantom injury. Boldy would contribute more to the team than either of those two.

    Breaking up Johansson and Fiala makes zero sense
