    The power of McDavid? First the Marody signing a month ago and now Koskinen signs. Hes a massive tender that has been getting better with age in the KHL. His stance is as wide as they come and uses those strong edges to take up the bottom of the net with ease.

    It is very common to see a surge in the offseason after a Winter Olympics year. A lot more players were showcased this year too because the NHL didnt represent there.

    If we were trading a roster player to STL at the deadline as some rumours said, I was hoping for a return of Jordan Kyrou. Well, he was just named the OHL's Most Outstanding Player.

    Poor Tommy C is a healthy scratch against the Russians today.

    What's worse is the PP was lethal (not so much when he was running the 1st unit previous game).

    On the one hand I'm glad he's getting this opportunity, on the other I wish he spent the summer training and adding some weight.

    Colin White too. The thing is being benched and playing with skilled guys allow these guys a first hand look at what it takes to be successful. Remember, this was Chabot's rookie year and White only played a handful of games at the NHL level.

    Agreed. At a tournament like this, just dressing, watching and only playing 5 minutes can be a benefit to development. In the NHL however, I call Boucher out on his deployment and managements use of player X.

    That was the AHL. The Icehogs were eliminated 2 days ago. I think the video is from that series. It may have been the last game.

    That's not passion. That's a guy not behaving like a professional. He lashed out against fans who were taunting him.

    Ah, that makes a lot more sense. And yeah, you just can't flip out like that. Imagine if he had broke the glass?

    Apparently there was a little girl in the crowd who was terrified.

    That said, the people the girl was with (presumably her parents) weren't exactly being great role models, either.

    Weird how the whole thing played out...Lou meeting with Tavares before he was officially hired by the Isles...eventually getting in and then still taking a bit of time before cleaning house....
