Ssshhhh, don't tell him yet
What's the saying?
"Great minds think alike but fools rarely differ"?
Reminds me of that scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, with young Indy, where he's all alone and looks around, then says "Everyone's lost but me"
Lindbom back for another shot in Mora.
thanks for heads up
here is an article
Olof Lindbom förlänger med Mora IK
Was also mentioned in his thread last month.
Prospect Info: - With the 39th Overall Pick the New York Rangers Select Olof Lindbom
I wouldn't say easily but I definitely think he gets minutes. Right now he's the Rangers most NHL ready forward prospect. You don't have to worry about him physically. Dude's got a little Henry Cavill in him. He will fit in.
To me Barron and Gauthier on opposite wings would create a very formidable matchup if they are able to get pucks in deep and use their bodies to grind out a cycle.
Our 4th line has sucked for years. The Islanders game was a perfect example of where we could have used a 4th line to get a garbage goal in front or draw a couple of penalties. Help is coming soon with the 4th line as long as Quinn realizes that Smith sucks and has to go. If he doesn't, Gorton and JD need to get rid of him.
the 4th line - known for timely goal scoring
Sure was when Boyle and Moore were on it. Especially in playoff games. Rangers have made little to no effort building a 4th line that can chip in with some scoring from time to time. Needs to change. Starting with Smith bought out or released.
What did Smith have to do with the 4th line the other night?
I saw that Jack Drury signed in Sweden with Vaxjo. Makes you wonder if someone like Zac Jones would consider doing the same, if Hockey East were to postpone the start of the season or cancel.
the tough thing there is that he then can't go back, his college career would be over.
Right, it would be a big gamble. It only makes sense for kids who would have been considering turning pro after two years. Is he one? I have no idea. I just saw that Drury did it, which is obviously not something you would normally see, and it made me wonder.
I could theoretically see someone like Kjellberg going that route, since he's already familiar with Swedish hockey. The worst thing that can happen to the kids is to miss a whole season when they're in peak development time.
RE Jones, i expect Hockey East (and other major conferences) to find a way to play some.
The Ivy League decision has spurred a lot of movement, not just Drury to pro,
but multiple guys de-commiting to enter non-Ivy schools
I'd be more inclined to tell him to go overseas and if he isn't 100% ready after 1 season over there they have the option of loaning him back or keeping him in the AHL. I'd rather see him playing
I kinda have a gut 'gonna make it' feeling about Richards,
growing a up a NHL coach's kid,
playing a key Selke-type role, as a Center, with repeat NCAA champs.
Maybe not a star, but similar to a blend of Fast and Brian Boyle (...without the height)
I only watched Duluth during the Frozen Fours, so not a lot.
But i think it was great signing,
Much less hit-or-miss than guys who, as eligibility-expiring older F's, had single breakout seasons, ie Elmer/Newell/Leedahl
Todd Richards was a player too not just a coach
Yeah, but he doesn't remember much from his dad's playing days, unlike Ty Ronning.
Barron - Chytil- Goat, if Chytil can't make the jump to be a second line center. That would be a very large line with decent offense. Miller-Trouba on D and those 5 would make most other teams look like they were icing the smurfs instead of the Rangers.
Kravtsov says hi.
Hoping Krava will be more than a third line wing in that scenario.
Someone was discussing what the plan would be for Robertson and if he's going back to the WHL for next season.
The WHL has announced an adjusted start date of 12/4
