There were several "gaping cages" on that Kraken PP.  Woof.

That's some scrambly D. You'd like to see a better job of boxing out the crease. Maybe that's where a bigger body would help.

We may have to introduce him to Young Knies.

If knies goes up against actual men in the playoffs he's going to get crushed.

If he really runs 234 lbs I think he can hold his own physically.

The difference between college hockey and the NHL is absolutely massive, both in speed and player strength. It's a huge leap for an inexperienced player in the AHL, let alone college hockey.

Now I see another page that lists him at 209.  That's quite a difference.

Seattles gets away with like three trips in under a minute.  I'm sure it has nothing to do with the score being 4-1

Nobody is arguing that point. The thing with Knies is he's got a man's body so he's better equipped to handle the physical part of the game. Speed is a different issue and that's why he'll start in the bottom 6 if he gets into the lineup.

I'm arguing the point that he's the answer to Jeanneaut. It's ridiculous, I'm sorry. He's a kid playing college hockey, and not even exceptionally so,  and the idea that he's going to step into the most important 4-7 games in this GM's tenure as some sort of physical force to counter actual, proven nhl power forwards is borderline insane to me.

Jeez.

All I was suggesting is that beefing up the bottom 6 might help.  Jeannot is not some kind of invincible player.

We'll be fine...we have Acciari and we'll see what Dubas does by Friday.

I think they should just give Stanley Cups to all EC playoff teams and declare the season over.
