Well this is one kid I definitely want to keep track of and how he is doing in Bakersfield.
Tonight is his debut vs San Antonio at home.
I hope he excels and gets some big confidence!!!!!
I'm not actually expecting him to put up huge numbers - yes, he should definitely produce but I don't think he'll be a PPG guy - that's simply a function of not really having great players to play with.
With Lander and Slep up who will he play with?
Beck is an AHL stud but they are both right wingers.
I think the top center is JJ and, while he is likely NHL ready, he's not an offensive dynamo.
Looks like JP is slated to play with Khaira and Laleggia - this Laleggia at forward experiment seems to have some legs.
I hope he had a good chat with Leon before departing the big squad.
Can't they speak European to each other?
I hope they had a good discussion with a handy interpreter present.
Oh yeah, I forgot, the average European speaks 18 languages.
Eberle was drafted 22nd overall.
He was sent back to junior for two seasons post draft.
He had a 76 point season in his 2nd NHL season.
He has settled in as a top 10 RW as far as production in the 65 point range.
Not to be defensive, but how has this player not reached his draft-day potential? He wasn't a high first rounder.
I think he was developed properly - 76 points in the your 2nd NHL season kind of shows that.
Eberle has exceeded his expectations based on where he was drafted.
Yak has been a complete bust
Yeah, Yak's issue is between the ears.
Not much you can do about that.
1 assist for JP so far tonight - game in third period.
