My issue with Alex isn't that he won't make the team and isn't ready yet, it's that I've never watched him and been impressed with what I saw, even once. I was impressed with his stats at WJC but outside of two rushes his game in the tournament wasn't special. Any Rochester game I saw he was either bad or invisible, any training camp or prospect scrimmage the same.

Mittelstadt, Asplund, Pu, and Guhle are all guys that surprised me in a good way when I saw them play the FIRST time and many times since. I've never had that with Alex.

Safe to say he's starting in Roch at the very least then.

I am concerned his potential is about Afinogenov.

 

Max did have a 73 pt season. I'd take that.

Nylander is weak-too-weak.
