    He's basically Danault now, right? Elite defensively and on 45-50 point pace with almost zero PP time/production. Production level looks sustainable, goals scored is where iXGF indicates it should, 10% OISH and actually sort of low IPP at 56%.

    Would not mind adding another JEE in Danault and running Rossi, Danault and JEE as the center core.

    Huh. I knew the stats this year, and knew they were also good last year. I didn't know they were even better last year!

    That is a heck of a line.

    That lines great. Not going to argue it's not. They also don't seem to miss a beat when seperated and re-united.

    But JEE has been great with literally everyone. The only player he's seen the ice with that he hasn't been able to drag to a 55 + xGF% is Johansson.

    In the 10 minutes Zuc-JEE- Kaprizov have been a line, they have a rediculious 86% xGF. I wouldn't hate spending a couple games see if thats a small sample size fluke, or JEE makes that line literally unstoppable. If it's a fluke, you can easily re-unite with Foligno and Greenway.

    Added bonus, you could spend those same games seeing if there is more to Sturm between Foligno and Greenway.

    He probably doesn't yet have enough name recognition around the league to be considered a Selke finalist, but if he stays on the trajectory he has been on, he will be in future conversations for the award.

    I think Kaprizov has grabbed us enough media attention that Ek is also getting noticed. I think he’s got a real chance to be a finalist. He’ll be an expensive extension if that’s right. We may be saying goodbye to the dreams of getting Ek at 4 million

    He's been great. Would really like to see him improve his faceoff % though.

    I would like to see Greenway-JEE-Kap get a long run together.

    Frees up Zucc to play opposite Fiala on the 2nd line.

    Then pair Foligno with Hartman on the 3rd line.

    He's a smart player. The more offensive zone time you give him, with skilled players, telling him to try to generate offense as opposed to just shutting down other lines, killing time, grinding away, the more he'll adapt. We've already seen more creative offensive plays this season. He's never going to be a Kaprizov or Fiala, but he's not devoid of skill.
