    I think a few of those guys will outscore Serg, but I'm not sold on Serg getting back to 40 points. I think his season is gonna be a roller coaster. Lajoie looks pretty legit to me in Ottawa. Even when he's not scoring, he's creating chances. Vatanen looks like he's gonna put up points as a devil. I wouldn't bet against McDonagh either, mainly because he's playing at a level that there are times we just can't afford to take him off the ice. Was it the Vegas game where it felt like he played the final 4 minutes?

    Not worried in the slightest with the way sergachev has started this season, the kid in only 20 years old and is getting used to playing against the big boys. I still think he is going to be a major piece in our organisation in years to come. We will look back through this thread in years to come and laugh of all the worries which we were having.

    46 points in 100 games. Good start to his career can't wait to see what he looks like with 200 games in his back pocket.

    He’s very good imo. Controls play even when he’s not scoring and isn’t afraid to go for big plays. I do think he needs to get faster though if he wants to get even scarier.

    I think we're seeing a sophomore slump.

    We could be as he is only projected for 30 points right now. He is sort of starting to heat up though with 3 points in his last 4 games

    He isn't making it look pretty but he's also getting more minutes and more D zone starts. For the most part he is surviving, which is good to see after a poor start to the year.

    Yeah. I don't think he's floundering anymore. "Surviving" is a good way to put it. Seems somewhat net neutral at the moment. You only really notice him when he does that Make-You-Look-Stupid move at the blueline, but he's yet to figure out a way to turn that into legit scoring chances.

    And he was somehow +2. Weird game.

    I didn't think he was *that* bad though. Some bad decisions against the forecheck but I don't think he had a play that led to a goal or even a big scoring chance. Of all the goats on defense today, he is the one I have the fewest comments on. I mean - Cernak too a stupid penalty and was kind of a disaster in the zone. Hedman wasn't good. McDonagh had his worst game of the season. Coburn was good. Girardi was unnoticeable so that's a positive.

    Mostly tongue-in-cheek, I like serge. But everyone remembers how much of a difference sitting point made (injury I know). Sometimes you realize the time you have out there.

    Serge is struggling due to his increased responsibilities, but if the board wants to boilerplate kucherov as a floaty russian, serge isn’t coasting far behind.

    I would send him to Syracuse, not sit him, if it came to that

    It's not hate, it's critisism. I also love Kuch but I can say that he's played like **** compared to what you'd expect from him.

    Even in Serg’s “sophomore slump” he has some of the best defensive metrics in hockey

    As of this second? Kind of, yeah. Nobody's saying he's not going to progress.

    lol

    yeah coburn has pretty good defensive metrics so far too. only bolts who really dont look good so far are stralman and koekkoek. hedman and mcdonagh's numbers dont look as good as you would expect but they are still above average which is very impressive given their usage, also real sample size issues with using this for hedman as he missed time combined with this already being a stupid small sample.

    btw, i believe girardi in the last two games surpassed serg for best (lowest) xga/60 on the bolts. girardi 4 norris (or more accurately, hedman is back)

    Serg has been making some mighty nice stretch passes as of late. Seems to be improving defensively as well. Like what I've been seeing from him lately.
