    Most impressive today by Vanek is how he assisted on goals. Not just a cute pass here and there but some gritty offensive zone play and breakaway that left a juicy rebound and a dazed goalie for an easy follow up goal.

    I’m guessing he went hard core workout mode in the offseason. He looked trimmer and much faster on his skates.

    He’s a unique talent even among NHL players. The numbers he’s put up in Buffalo over his career are all the more impressive considering he hasn’t been the benefactor of similarly gifted offensive linemates.

    But Whioux sports claim he’s only a 3rd line player :confused2:

    Did they add it after the game? Both NHL.com and TSN show no assist on ENG. No way Vanek gets an assist on that on. Pominville blocked puck and scored on a breakaway.

    Maybe not then – before they went to interview him I could have sworn they said he got the third but you’re right that doesn’t seem to be the case.

    You weren’t hearing things. The TV guy did say he had 3+3=6 but corrected himself later.

    Still that was a heck of a game. Buffalo jumping out to the 1-0 lead, then three straight goals by Boston, then Buffalo roars back due to stupid penalties… Made better by the fact that I dislike Boston and like Vanek and Leo (and Buffalo by extension).

    On the Gopher Sports site there is a blog that posts highlights and statistics. They will be posting on a weekly basis information on all former Gopher hockey players and the various leagues they play in (NHL,AHL,ECHL,CHL and Europe/others). Up to date statistics too. Very nice. :dup:

    What’s the deal with Taffe? When he was a Gopher I thought he had everything going for him. Really surprised he hasn’t been more successful.

    Good question. 180 NHL games since ’02-’03 with 46 career points, but he’s logged nearly 70+ games each year combined NHL/AHL so injuries don’t seem to be the culprit.

    Taffe was always moving on his skates and had great hands. I think he lacks a little flat out speed and size. If he had either one or the other, I think he’d be more of an impact player. He’s a bubble player but seems to be making a career of it.

    Well yeah, but those guys would have been good regardless of where they went, or whatever it is they say. :blahblah:

    2-4 years ago a lot of people would look at that list and say they left early because they weren’t developing here.

    Exactly. My take on this is that an NHL caliber player is going to develop no matter where he is. If you want to talk about player development, look at the entire lineup, not just the top players. Aside from maybe 1 or 2 players on our squad this year (not naming anyone) I would say they have all improved noticeably during their time at the U.

    I’m happy for any Minnesotan getting to the pros, but I wish Jordon Schroeder had not gone to the U. Reading in the paper today how happy they are at what a gritty player he is makes it clear he was playing it safe at the U. In college, he was the antithesis of grit.

    Yesterday’s Sabres-Penguins game was a regular Gopher hockey reunion. Four Gophers in attendance and each one of them played on National Championship winning teams. Pretty good game with Vanek scoring for the Sabres and Paul Martin getting the game winner for the Penguins. :dup:

    Jordan Leopold
    Thomas Vanek
    Paul Martin
    Joe Micheletti

    It was funny listening to Joe interview Brooks Orpick about having been named after Herb Brooks. Orpick talked about what it was like to meet Herbie and what a highlight that was for him. I was hoping Joe would have added something about having “met” Herbie too, but unfortunately it didn’t happen.

    Quote of the day on NHL.com

    Geico Quote of the Day

    You don’t score goals in this League unless you have that competitive edge. That’s just white noise when people talk about him not being competitive. He’s never going to be a player that is going to run guys over or put guys through the glass, but he gets in there and he’s pretty strong when he gets in battles.
    — James van Riemsdyk on Leafs teammate Phil Kessel, whose two goals lifted Toronto to a 4-3 win over the Rangers on Monday

    Good news is the Wild/’Hawks are the lead of the day. The bad news is they have two No Names in the picture.

    Not bah, eh? He’s actually on a line with Kane (1.24 ppg) and Sharp (0.69 ppg), so he has a very good chance of tallying a point tonight.

    Phil the Thrill just got number 20 on the shortened season and Goligoski scored on his own net.

    P.S. I still don’t know if WCHA Minnesotans means they have to be former WCHA players from Minnesota or what we were going for here…

    I can do a little elaboration on that. :D

    At least when I was in charge of this thread everyone knew the parameters. They may not have liked all those included, but they knew to expect them. :biggrin2:

    Just one season after some Pens fans were calling for him to be released, Paul Martin is having a playoff run. He’s currently 4th in playoff scoring with 9 points. Fifteen points in his last 16 games.

    Update on Schmidt:

    He’s played 3 games for Caps since being called up and is a -2 with 7 SOG. He played over 20 minutes last night so he seems to be gaining the trust of the Caps coaching staff. I asked a few Caps fans on the HFBoards to comment on his play so far and here’s what they had to say.

    “He’s been good, he’s using his skating and vision to make some pretty good pinches. No egregious defensive mistakes.”

    “He played 20 minutes, I think, because there was a lot of 4 on 4 early in that game and he gets primary ice time in that it seems. He is on the 3rd pair and under normal conditions would not have played quite that much but I think he looks like a real good player coming”

    Pretty positive reviews from a fan base that is pretty upset with most of their team this year.

    I thought Schmidt looked really good the other night. Made one “mistake” that might have prevented a goal but overall thought he was solid. Better than a few of the Wild defenders we’ve been watching.
