Ya Nylander floated for most of the playoffs and got serious for only one game.  I think he has a lot of competition around him. As Babcock said, Matthews will make Nylander better.

Seems like some pretty serious underestimating of Andreas Johnson here, in terms of ceiling he might be our 5th best prospect and he's already had spells where he dominated in the pro's.

I'm with you on this one. I just have a really good feeling about him.

I think it should be "Jam" level.  Then we rank them in terms of Jams, like Strawberry or Raspberry.  But first we need to rank the Jams.

When making Jelly you strain the fruit so that you're making it with, more or less, juice. Jam is just made with crushed fruit.

Apricot seems like a choice out of left field based on your currant list. No mixed berry?

Alright, I see how we're going to be. Fine.

And Mixed Berry seems like cheating.

Mixed berry is admittedly an abomination. Delicious, nonetheless.

I recently discovered the joy of lingonberry.

I figured we were limiting ourselves to commonly available commercial jams.

IKEA carries it if you have one near by. They're a touch sour for more common jam usage (toast), but really complements a savoury dish nicely.

Savoury jams/jellies is a whole other list. Also, we'd have to figure out where Chutneys fit. This might not be a one-day project.
