    I didn’t think he had much of an impact the first time they came to the XL Center earlier this year...actually thought he was lazy, didn’t skate very hard and basically just used his size to try and push/bulky kids around ...he seemed to be keying on Karashik. He better step up his game if he is gonna have any kind of NHL career other than that of the ever disappearing tough guy.

    One game does not make a season. I’m glad his 9 goals and 16 assists are playing elsewhere. The shake up in their lines has to be a disruption.

    I agree with you on the disruption to their lines...but to be honest he hasn’t impressed me since he has been at BU...with his size and talent he should have 20+ goals every season. I was pissed when NYR passed him over in the draft then I watched him play. Eichel, Keller, Tkachuk and Fabbro have been as advertised to me ...Greenway and Krys not so much.

    Greenway and Krys did not come to BU in anywhere near the same category as the first four.

    We will agree to disagree on that one...they were both considered top players on the USNDTP with Krys considered the top defenseman of his class and Fabbro’s equal for USA hockey...

    It stands to reason that they weren't considered the same. Krys and Greenway were both second round picks while Eichel, Keller, and Fabbro were first rounders and Tkachuk is projected as an early first-rounder. Fabbro and Krys were in the same class and Dante was consistently rated higher. Also, being from Canada he wasn't a part of the USNDTP. I'll give you that Fabbro and Tkachuk could potentially be considered a similar level of recruit to Greenway and Krys, but Eichel and Keller were both generational types of players. Had he not been injured for a month last year, Keller would've easily been a Hobey contender. Krys and Greenway were nowhere near the same category as either of those two. I agree both have had ups and downs, Jordan should be a consistently dominant physical force but sometimes turns into a ghost while Krys has some defensive lapses at times.

    Unfortunately, I'll probably be in New London tomorrow night. The CC Camels managed to throw NESCAC hockey into disarray this season.

    I think it will be a nice crowd. Got tix at the last minute due to a scheduling thing and the only ones available were upper level a few scattered singles in the lower bowl
