Ah, ok. Communication breakdown. Ya, I get your point.
When he's beaten out two proven defensemen in Ghost and Braun?
I don't think so, but he was injured quite a lot.
Wyatt the 1st!
From what I know I very much doubt Rubtsov is KHL bound.
Dang...I guess I won't get to go to any Phantoms playoff games
he is still under contract here.
Every time @Appleyard says "naught", for example "naught point 7 points per game", I think he's saying 9. It's a real roller coaster
Extremely strong candidate for dunce cap hockey comment of the day on the internets:
The 10 best seasons by a Flyers prospect during the 2010s
*The 2nd reply in the comments section of this article*
Try JVR on D first.
Well, he's big, skates well for his size, good puck handler and passer.
But how is his backward skating?
And he's not very physical for his size.
Plus he's LH, we need another RHD.
I totally agree with the bottom post. The whole fighting a guy that lays a clean hit just pisses me off.
What do you not like about the second comment?
The first part about their having to be a fight after someone gets laid out with a clean check. It was clean....if it were dirty, I’d far more understand the impulse to want to punish the perpetrator.
The second part I have no qualms with.
I don't see that many fights following clean checks. Maybe by a 4th line guy trying to impress his HC and is looking for an excuse to start something.
It's usually when the other team has been laying dirty hits, then someone throws an elbow at the head of one of your top players, or checks someone hard into the boards that looks like an intent to injure, that guarantees that all hell will break loose (elbow G's head and you've put a bullseye on your back the rest of the season).
#1, the only one to break the 37% Team Involvement and 40% League Involvement, was tenth. #28 was second.
*WHL Defenseman who maintained at least 1.0 PPG since 2001-2002 (u20 only).
League involvement%? What sorcery is this?
Seriously though, how’s that calculated?
Lol I’m not good with coming up with stat names. It’s pretty much just league adjusted PPG.
Player Points Per Game [Divided By] League Average (Team) Goals Per Game.
We are on the same page then. I think the tweet is supposed to be read as "my pet peeve is that there has to be a fight after any big hit."
In Madison for the offseason, Badgers men's hockey captain Wyatt Kalynuk does what comes naturally: golf | Wisconsin Badgers Hockey | madison.com
Kalynuk’s making a decision on whether to turn pro or not sometime in the next 30 days per a quote in the story linked above
Here's the issue for a college player, what if there is no AHL season (AHL depends on attendance)?
He's not going to make the Flyers out of camp (long shot unless they dump Hagg and trade Ghost).
He's waiting to see who the Flyers draft first.
Just taking a cursory glance at Wisconsin’s roster, they don’t have much talent outside of Holloway and Caufield. I could totally see a desperate NHL time try to make Holloway an NHLer right after getting drafted (which would be a massive mistake). If that were to happen, Kalynuk would have Caufield to pass to and a ton of JAG’s.
Playing in the AHL would provide far more talent for him to work with. Sticking around to play against inferior competition with inferior teammates would be an odd choice. A potential playing time battle with Zamula & Wylie would bring out the best for all involved. Iron sharpens iron & what not.
You skipped the pertinent point, what if there's no AHL this fall?
In that case, even if there's no college season, get your degree (assuming there is college) and wait for the smoke to clear.
In fact, that raises an interesting question, what will the league do with prospects who sign pro contracts but don't make NHL teams?
Expand rosters? Create a Taxi Squad?
