Too bad the Panthers didn't bite on Samuelsson for Raymond on deadline day.

It would be a perfect fit in the playoffs if he can put up the points. He should create some space for the twins and he also provides a little muscle if other teams wish to take liberties on our stars. He doesn't play PP or PK so I can't see his lack of fitness being a HUGE issue as we can also slot in Burrows, Raymond or Hansen in the third period/overtime if need be.

Hopefully, if that happens, fans will realize that the kid is still a rookie that has junior eligibility left, and development comes with its challenges...there's no challenge greater than performing in the playoffs.

Good luck with that.
