Still Reinhart has 103 points in 211 games avg almost .5 points a game, he's best on the powerplay naturally, I'm gonna guess Sabres - Phil Housley as their new head coach might have been detrimental for SR's game this season, Sam is the good buy low option this season.
He has an irrational hate for Tkachuks, Stromes, Reinharts and Richies

Meds wants to know if you are drafting any of those 6 Canadians whose 2017-18 stats I posted above ahead of their draft class mates, Euros - Draisaitl, Pastrnak, Nylander and Ehlers?

The only iffy one is Nylander.
2014 re-draft:

Ekblad
Draisaitl
Pastrnak
Ehlers
Larkin
Nylander better passer/assists OR Reinhart better shot/goals...Nylander got a lot of assists iirc with Matthews early on.

As an aside...Tryamkin when he makes his TRYumphant return, could be the 2nd best dman this draft, the potential is insane.

In due time, SKYO I believe Tryamkin will be the best D man of the 2014 Draft Class. At the least he should have gone top 5 in 2014

So you're including KHL players and their KHL careers in your assessment of this?

He's a prospect of an NHL team, yeah/no? An NHL affiliated prospect voted defenceman if the month twice this KHL season so far, yeah/no? An NHL affiliated prospect with 9 goals 16 assists 109 PIMs in the KHL this season, yeah/no?

Cory Crawford suffering from vertigo and other symptoms. Could be done for the rest of the year.

As long as there is hope that Trymakin will one day return I think one can safely include him in prospects/young players with potential category. By all accounts he wants to come back but we are looking at at least one more complete season, potentially two.

Yup all the best Russians are in the NHL, all the russkies always say this is the best league in the world, thus! Tryamkin will return if not for 2018/19, most definitely for the 2019/20 season just when:

Horvat
Pettersson
Gaudette

trio of canucks centers start to get their NHL skills going. :o

Just when a young Demko could be starting his J. Quick/ Cory Schneider like skills. :wow:

Crawford diagnosed with post- concussion syndrome. Out indefinitely. Chicago on the hunt for a goalie before their playoff hopes disappear altogether. I don't think either of ours would inspire confidence though. Although I'd be tempted to trade Markstrom if I got a nice return. Let the Demko era begin!
