Pastrnak is the #1 prospect for immediate impact, some World Junior thoughts, MacLean rumoured to take over in New Jersey and more...
Did everyone have a great holiday break? I sure hope so. NHL hockey returns tonight so remember to set those lineups!
No NHL action but yesterday was a great day of hockey. I’m not ashamed to say that I watched all four of the games from the World Juniors. I don’t want to step on the toes of our prospect writers so I’m just going to rapid fire some thoughts here since there’s no NHL action to report on. Keep in mind these are thoughts based on one viewing.
Jack Eichel was the single most impressive player that I watched all day. That US team is loaded but he carries them anyway. He isn’t really dominating in a “man amongst boys” way either. He just does everything at a high level. He’s so fluid. It looks easy.
