Yeah but at least our defense is "keeping us "competitive""
17 goals scored over 3 games, his linemates have accumulated a combined 11pts in those games, Mayhew has 0.
Just making note of the current status. Not drawing any conclusions yet.
He has played pretty well and has made plays leading up to a few of these goals. Not that i'm trying to counter you, just saying.
He's an excellent net driver.
I've been impressed. No points, but he has made a lot of things possible. He's got decent speed, too.
Ya, m thinking that's flukey as hell. I'd bet if you look at the tape he's got like 6 3rd assists. He has def been involved.
I like his game. Solid player.
Ask Russo: The latest on Kaprizov, Wild playoff push,...
Also have to wonder how much of him not getting on the score sheet is because he is still finding chemistry with all the players. Hard for anyone to acclimate themselves when given a short amount of time pro athlete or not.
Fair or not, if he doesn't start scoring he soon, he'll be going down.
In 3 of those games on the top line, his linemates had 11 combined points. It's clear chemistry wasn't an issue.
I'm glad we found out.
Still a small sample size. I'm pulling for the young man.
Small sample size in the most prime chance for success getting the prime minutes with PP time and weak opponents, with points flooding all around him. He's not going to get a better chance than he had.
I was pulling for him to succeed too, but reality is, he's not cut out for the top 6 in the NHL.
He's had as much of a chance as Donato and hasn't shown anything.
I haven’t given up on him yet. I wouldn’t go out of my way to make a roster spot for him, but might as well keep him around for when top 6 guys get injured. He will get his chance and if by the end of his contract he hasn’t shown he can produce in the NHL then we know.
Showed what he showed. We can move on now. I want him attached to Khovanov in Iowa next year.
I'd give him about three more games.
Donato has 128 nhl games under his belt vs. Mayhew 12. Bad comparison. I'm holding off until he hits 20 to see if he flashes anything.
Agreed. They set him up for success. Time to start sliding him down the lineup over the next 8 to send the message.
Now he can go back to being a generational AHL player as someone once called him.
Congrats to Mayhew!
