Well he's not gonna score many goals, that's for sure.

 

 

 

Every game he goes pointless with a fight he looks less and less like a first round pick.

 

That's not to say all he'll ever be is a goon or that he won't be an NHL player, but there's no value in picking a guy like that in the first round. You can get a similar player in the 4th.

Whale won 7-3. Got bored and bought the stream. Mashinter was really impressive. He has top notch hockey skills for a goon. Skates really well and has a big shot. Both he and Haley made some nifty passes that you wouldn't expect from them. Haley looked really fast. McIlrath's mobility looked good, he did a good job positionally and was aggressive in stepping up to the blueline to meet the puck carriers when entering the zone. He needs to be more assertive with the puck though. Saw good effort from Palmieri. Vernace is also doing a very good job down there on D.

Ok so 2-1 Whale after 1.

 

Tessier wins a race to the puck and throws it around to Thomas who scores by banking it off the goalie from behind. Kind of a fluke goal but good hard work. Haley with an assist on the play as well.

 

Kreider is a -1. Got in too deep and left the point men who got an open shot which created a rebound for a goal.

 

Mashinter scores on a beautiful feed from Newbury from the side boards to front of the net where he was wide open.

 

McIlrath looking really good, on for both of our goals and is a +2.

Kreider with a semi-breakaway on the PK but can't get a shot off.

 

Also Mashinter playing well on the PK. How many goons can say that?

 

Christian Thomas has probably been the best player on the ice.

 

Edit: End of 2 same score.

 

Forgot to mention that Eminger looks like Brian Leetch down here. Rushing the puck up the ice by himself and making all kinds of spin moves. He's passing really well.

Great update. Sounds a bit better than the start of the season, or was it just a good night for those three guys?

wasn't when Gretzky did it ... now, if he repeats it with some regularity...

More good news(or are you on the happy moonshine? lol). I'm liking it, even if we don't have room for these guys up here right now.

Whale have been very good lately. Much different team than the one they started with. I think there's only like 6 forwards in the lineup now that there were in there a month ago.

Really like what I just saw. Portland Player took a two hand slash to the back of Tessier's legs. Kreider saw it and went straight after him. Then Mashinter and Haley came over to back him up for a momentary brawl before the refs broke it up. This is the kind of personality the Kreider needs to bring every night. Love it.

 

Whale to the 5-3 after the penalties are sorted out. Haley and a Portland player got the gate.

I brought up Kreider doing this up here.

Game over, Whale win 4-1.

3 stars

1 Thomas

2 Mashinter

3 Tessier

 

 

Kreider looked good at times, but also had too many giveaways and turnovers. It would be hard to justify calling him up ahead of guys like Mashinter, Haley, and Thomas, who have all been dominating lately. Can't say enough how impressed I am with the actual hockey skills of Mashinter. Makes so much happen and has really good hands. He and Haley both play the top PP unit and contribute on the PK. With the grit and personality they bring they could be really useful players at the next level.

 

Thomas just looked like a stud tonight, but will have to keep that up.

 

As for McIlrath's game, very physical, nothing flashy, but basically flawless. No mistakes.
