He's gonna be our Phil Kessel. Maybe he'll be able to do a pull up one day too.

Kid can really fly. The league is going to speed and skill over size and grit. The Sabres gotta get on board with that. I like the Mittelstadt pick.

Excellent. Now that that's out of the way, we can move on to bigger and better things...like panicking over Mittelstadt leaving as a UFA.

He is going to the Gophers. They have one of the best training facilities in hockey. He'll knock that pull up out Maybe even a bonus one.

Middlestadt in German means "Centercity".   LMAO.  I wanted Vilardi, and didn't expect him to fall.  For those who are afraid because he cannot do a pull up, get over it.  He can skate very well.

I think it's a fine pick.  He's a little weird looking, but he's got some game.

He couldn't do a pull up though and only did one bench press.

Who the hell are you and what did you do with the real Eleven?

After watching his interview a few days ago he was the pick I wanted.  By the time we flush some of these bad contracts out and Eichel and company enter their prime - kids like this will be ready to make us really good.

That's why going to college is best for him. He'll be a in a college weight program. He will be 205lbs and lean in about 2 years.

Quick, someone get this guy a copy of Warriner's, while I worry whether Casey can do a pull-up.
