@jammer2 - i hope he gets the chance to have an NHL career because I would hate for him to have to remember this as the end of his hockey career.

BU is pretty much dominating and Eichel is the best player on the ice. I haven't even heard them mention Parks, have you noticed him?

@JackStraw  I noticed him a few times, but yeah, kinda invisible in this game, I'm gonna try to make an effort to find him and watch his shifts in the next few periods, you don't get chances like this to watch NCAA teams (at least for me) and I'd love to get a better read on just what kind of a prospect Parks is.

I will be there!!!  I will post a 1st hand report on the Ghost.  Probably not until tomorrow, however.

 

Look for me.  I'll be the little green guy running around with an enormous Rum and Coke in my hand.   :D

 That should make for an interesting report!

Well, boys...after spending the entire game pretty much watching Ghost, I can tell you he is the real deal.  Great skating ability, exceptionally smooth strides, quick acceleration and very fast.   He ALWAYS has his head up, which I love.  Always looking to move the puck forward.  He had 2 assists, and for those that missed it, the 2nd was a cannon one-timer from the point that was deflected.  He's not big, as we all know, but I don't think he looked small--average size for a college kid. One thing I've noticed about Ghost is that he's not afraid to take a hit to make a play, which is good.  At the same time, he takes some pretty hard hits due to his average size.  Not an issue at this level.

 

He's definitely the type of D-man the Flyers are needing from what I saw.  Great passing ability, sees the ice very well, and can acutally get his shot through from the point.  

Obviously, how well it translates to the NHL remains to be seen.  But it's easy to see why people rave about him.  

Bodie--Union's Captain--is another nice player and stood out to me.  However, I know nothing about him.

Be interesting to see how Ghost plays vs Minnesota. Their game vs UND was very physical.  They take the body every chance they get.  

 

 

 Gaudearu on the other hand looks small (IS small)...but is disgustingly good.  :-)

 I hope that Gostisbehere can bulk up a little bit, and play with a big man (hopefully Morin one day) they could make a good pairing. At the very least he sounds like he could be a 3rd pairing pp specialist.

 

 Thanks for the update, keep em coming!

Thanks DGG. I missed the Union game (sadly). Did you stay to watch the Sioux-Gophers game. I watched it online (in large part with @hf01). Are you going to the championship today?

You bring up a good point, and one I forgot to mention;  Maybe it was the matchup, but Ghost seemed to play the 2nd PP unit most of the night-which surprised me a bit.  And I agree about the bulk...he looks like he has room to add some pounds.  I'm thinking if he can get to 190-195, he may be good.  I thought I read he's almost 180 now, but I can't find it anywhere.

@JackStraw  HAH!  Almost a nonchalant back hander huh?  He looks faster now than he did at the World Jr's.....maybe the competition is a little less fast, who knows, but I'm really impressed so far....

 

 

 Just a FYI for Canadian fans....this game and tourny are broadcast on TSN2 through all of Canada if you are interested....

One nice thing about living in New England is they get great coverage of the NCAA, especially Hockey East. I haven't watched it as much as I should have though.

@AJgoal  I'm just watching this on TSN....but I subscribe to hockeystreams.com....I really recommend it, an awesome service with TONS of non-NHL action...they cover literally every pro and junior league you could think of...including a lot of Euro teams....I can watch any Flyer pick during any time..and it's all saved ie DVR'ed so you can go back and watch a game, or a whole season of any player....worth it's weight in gold I tell ya!!  Best 100 bucks I've ever spent....

@AJgoal  I would even pull the trigger before that if it was me. Think about it, during the summer, unlimited hockey....all kinds of chances to watch previous Flyer picks...a chance to see the prospects for this years draft up close and personal before the draft...and a chance to see who the Flyers select in the coming draft. I fully expect to watch most of the season of whoever the Flyers secect at #7....this is gonna be my first summer with this service, and I'm really looking forward to it!!!
