McBackup of 2020?

First of all, who doesn't love a goalie named WOLL or as I'm sure he'll be called, WALL if he makes the bigs.

However this lineup shakes out in the next 3-5 years, I don't see it looking as strong is it does now with all the cap flexibility we have this year and next. We have an advantage right now that we will lose soon. Hopefully we can make hay while the sun is shines.

4 pts in 5 games for Liljegren, tied for second on the team behind Ben Smith (5 pts in 6 games) with Johnsson and Soshnikov. Yeah, as an 18 year old rookie in his first season in North America.

Let's see where this goes.

The fact that hes sitting behind Ben Smith suggests we may need a little more data before we can make heady conclusions :-)

Ben Smith is a legitimate AHL weapon.

All that being said re: how cool it is that our 18 year old defenseman is near the top of our team's scoring rankings...

Nielsen was also near the top for a stretch last year (he was 20), and it's not something that really lasts unless you're an Erik Karlsson. These points are earned, but largely due to opportunity: offensive zone starts, PP time; where the coach is leveraging a strength. Defencemen assists are usually more a function of your forwards offensive capabilities, and right now, this is likely the best team of forwards Liljegren has ever played with.
Good Analysis Herman, when do you start with The Athletic?

I dont think Herman wants anything to do with those bloodsuckers ;)
