I could see us potentially passing Columbus and finishing 3rd in the division. Then we'd probably get the Penguins in the first round which would be no cakewalk either, but still better than Tampa.

Just win the next 3 and then we can get excited. Can we ever have a year where we are not 3 games less than everyone else? just once!

Certainly not a cake walk but I would prefer them over the Lightning. I don’t care at this point it’s nice to even be discussing this👍

NHL.com has Reilly winning Norris trophy already. I am clearly biased but a lot of his points is b/c he is on a PP with Mathews, Snake, Marner, etc. ... They are currently 8th in Goals Against. If you gave me any Defenseman in the league I wanted it would be a while before I mention his name.

Quick Hits: Sebastian Aho is tied for fifth among AHL defensemen with 24 points (three goals, 21 assists)… Aho is also tied for fourth among blue-liners in assists…

I can't figure out of Aho is making himself excellent trade bait or if he's playing so well that they really can't trade him.

Agreed. He’s good but to me not Norris good.

I was so fired up about Otto till you guys told me his skating is an issue. That is a big Uh Oh for me for a possible 2C/3C. Glad he is doing well but I really hope his skating is not an issue.

I mean he is from Friggin Finland for crying out loud... Of course he can FLY!!!!

Quick Hits: Sebastian Aho is tied for fifth among AHL defensemen with 24 points (three goals, 21 assists)… Aho is also tied for fourth among blue-liners in assists… Steve Bernier is tied for fifth in the AHL with eight power-play goals… Bridgeport is 14-0-0-1 when scoring at least four goals in a game… The Sound Tigers' 43 first-period goals are third-most in the league… Bridgeport has been involved in 24 one-goal outcomes, most in the AHL.

I can't figure out of Aho is making himself excellent trade bait or if he's playing so well that they really can't trade him.

Impressive Otto is doing this without JHS and MDC.

Great problems to have for a kid that no one thought would be part of any serious discussion.

I'd like to keep Aho unless he is needed for a big piece.

It needs work, like things in most young players games. I don't know if I'd say it's an "issue", but it's an area he needs to improve on. Guys like Lee and Martin have carved out NHL careers being slow, it's not a barrier to entry...just something he's got to improve or figure out how to compensate for.

If he can be a middle-six center that's a big win for a 4th round pick. If he can be a top-6 scoring center that's a massive win. Hopefully he plays well on both sides of the puck. If the guys pans out as a defensively-responsible 3rd line center that can put up something like 20-20-40pts...that's a nice find.

I love his game, but there's only so much room for guys on the blueline. Part of the reason I was very much against the Pelech/Mayfield deals. They're not horribly priced, but they're going to block young guys that are more talented, way cheaper, and deserve to play.

At varying times over this year and maybe the next year or two, Toews/Aho/Vande Sompel/Wotherspoon could all be ready to make the leap, if (some) not already.

I'd prefer to dangle MVS/Wotherspoon (who I think could be a sneaky-good prospect that isn't flashy), but Aho (or Toews, really) would carry a ton of value in a trade.

I don't even want to give him the clicks. At this point I think he does it just to get everyone to comment that he is an idiot.
