    People are talking about Nico bulking up with 8 pounds of muscle in one summer, but Bratt put on some muscle too. That should help him with endurance.

    I hope to see Bratt look to shoot the puck more this year. Lose the pass first mentality I really think he had. Easy to have that playing with Hall. And it’s hard to change instincts. But he has a great shot - the slap shot as well as wrister - and could legitimately look to score more than he did last year.

    I don't know, I thought his shot selection was fine last year. I remember some people complaining about a return pass he gave to Hischier in front of the crease, but it was the right play.

    Players that I'm excited to see how they do this year after what they showed last year:

    1. Bratt
    2. Hischier
    ...
    ...
    3. Wood
    4. Zacha

    I still say Bratt is the most unique player on this roster. No one sees the ice like he does. Just a matter of being consistent and putting it all together.

    Adding 10% to your existing body weight in one offseason is nothing to laugh at.

    Not everyone can be a freak of nature like Nico "8 more pounds of muscle" Hischier.

    He has trained all summer with the same trainer that Nicklas backstrøm, hornquist and the top prospect for next year Alexander scholtz.

    Really respected trainer who is so new in he's way of think athletic abilities. It's about movement in different and difficult positions while still being strong and in balance. Explosive movement with lots of agility and activation of the body when it needs to.

    What this actually means I cannot imagine. Sounds good though. I’ll take some of that.

    I see him as a 30-goal scorer at some point in his career

    And he doesn't fall down.

    And he's a playmaker.

    And he's not a Goof with a potato in his hand.

    Jesper.....you were solid but you made a big BOO-BOO in OT, you naughty person, you..... :nono:

    Clean up your act in the next Preseason game!

    Hope to see more of this in the future :

    Thank you Jesper for playing well tonight AND being careful during OT.

    Baby steps.

    From the Game Thread :


    Remember when someone said his only contribution would be Style points, as well? :laugh::laugh::laugh:


    I am thrilled with his improved play.

    But I am very encouraged with his developing chemistry with MarJo.

    Bratt and MarJo may be a Elias/Sykora like tandem....and I mean that in terms of CHEMISTRY.

    One of these 3 has to become a shooter, I wish it was Zacha.

    If that second line doesn’t score enough to start the season, I’d switch Bratt and Palmieri. Zacha’s mental game is improving, but so far his talk about “wanting to shoot more” looks like a bunch of hot air.

    I agree. He has 0 shots on goal so far in the regular season. Someone's got to tell him to put the puck on net.

    Bratt has been our best player so far against Winnipeg and Bern. Guy has dominated every shift where he has the puck.

    @DevilDoggo ...... [​IMG]

    As far as people forgetting how skilled he is, I think it's because Hall is so dominant and Everybody Loves Nico(a new TV Series!!).

    Bratt is like the guy shouting "Wait for me!!!" chasing after the protagonists in a movie as the ending credits roll. :laugh:

    It's all good, though.

    I think him being on the 2nd Line is better for him 'cause he's not constantly facing the opposing top line or shut-down pairing.

    But I also agree that if that line isn't scoring, Hynes will need to switch it up and reforming the Kids & The Hall line might need to happen.
