    He is looking good.

    Hopefully he doesn't take his foot of the pedal. He seems to play rather well when he's moving his feet and not watching the play, but being a part of it.

    He goes to the net and that’s something.

    All three of his goals so far have been close to the net. Good to see

    He most certainly tries hard, he just plays at the same speed and pace and doesn’t find that extra gear. Plays that calm, cool and collective Euro-style of hockey. Nonetheless, I hope he stays at 3C and gets to stay up and play, they can certainly use him. Was 44% from the dot tonight, which is trending in the right direction.

    Would Cave need to clear waivers also?

    He’s looking a heck of a lot better and appears to be taking 2 steps forward and 1 back.

    His skills are slowly showing and he’s going to traffic areas.

    Will there be more growing pains ? Likely but in 3 weeks you can see an improvement from just being a body to you hope doesn’t screw up to making plays

    Not bust but worrisome . Hopefully now he sticks and plays regular shifts . If he gets sent down one more time then it's over.

    I’m encouraged with him

    He’s getting it

    Watch he’s now starting to make a few Krejci like passes and plays - they are creeping into his game

    Hey I don't get everything right all the time but JFK is 22 going to 23 he's time is running out to prove he belongs. He played well last night and must play like that every night. Cassidy has a short leash on him. The next 10 games are crucial for this kid.

    I think the lesson here is that you should try being a little more patient instead of rushing to proclaim whatever hot take crosses your mind next

    Surprised at how nice of a skater he is . He was very noticeable last night against a strong Leafs team .

    Cave has already played 8 games. I believe it’s once someone gets to 10 games that was called up on an emergency basis would have to go through waivers to go back. I thought that was the rule.

    I’m not sure what the rule is but I hope JFK and Cave stay with the team all year. Cave would be a great 4C and JFK looks like he’s getting more comfortable. Not a fan of Kuraly this year, I think Cave has looked better.

    not sure if he`s playing with more speed but he seemed to, from the game last night, be identifying quicker where he needs to be and is there to at least be engaged. He did seem to be moving the puck quicker too and he is slowly getting better in the dot which for this fan, was a major problem

    Wonder if he'll play himself out of being packaged for Charlie Coyle by the time Bergeron's back.

    I usually am patient but this guy has been sent down and brought up more times then my recycling bin. This time he stays and just play him out even if he struggles.

    I think JFK is doing fine. Few players jump straight into the NHL and look great. Consider that JFK, and a couple other Bs, are being asked to step in an already less than stellar bottom 9 along with a team riddled with injuries and slumping players, and I'm not sure if he could be doing much better given what his game is. He's looked good his last couple games, with the offense an added bonus.
