Gostisbehere feels 'explosive' again

If that's the case, special teams and 5 on 5 scoring should improve greatly. This could be the year that Gostisbehere becomes Karlsson-lite, which would be MONSTROUS for this club.

After maybe to much early success maybe the struggles have lined up his head now with his body.

 

He is healthy to now which helps too.

 

I expect a good year for him.

 

I think Sam Morin would be a great partner for him an offensive guy with a stay at home who can actually skate.

 

I hope they can rekindle their chemistry they had with the Phantoms.

Did Ghost and Morin play together a good amount with the Phantoms?

Yes they did.

 

Until Mcdud was waived.

 

Then he was ruined paired with him. IIRC.  But i wouldn't say a lot but i do remember Bob Rotruck tweeting how good he and Sam looked. But i could be thinking about his first year was at the end of the year for only 5 games.

 

Can't say for sure. Just remember some fans saying get him away from Mcdud.

I agree.

 

Ghost just needs someone who can skate up ice for support with him, yet get back and cover when he pinches and it ends up going the other way on a turnover or something Sam has the wheels and reach to get back and breaks a rush up (he really hasn't had that in NHL yet).

 

These guys could be lethal playing off each other.

If the forwards aren't putting the puck in the net, it doesn't matter how explosive he is, though his explosiveness will help open up the ice for them and get the rush going.

Guys you need to stop making it sound so awesome, I am starting to wig and get a little nuts for the season. I am getting that itch now, the anticipation and excitement for this club this season.

Ghost being healthy would be fantastic. Hopefully, he's not on quite as tight a leash as he was last year, as well.

 

I get Hakstol's conservative approach to a point-neither goalie could stop a beach ball at times in the early going, and I think Hak got over-conservative in trying to find a remedy before Mason sort of came around. But while you want Gostisbehere to be responsible in his own end, stifling him too much really hinders what makes him special.

 

I mean, if you have a Ferrari and just use it to run to the grocery store, what's the point?  As far as a pair, I could see him doing well with Morin or Hagg, assuming one or the other make the team. Morin has the obvious qualities, but Hagg is a smooth skating kid who could be a really solid all around defender, who could allow Ghost to rev it up and still be protected, even without Big Sammy's size and snarl.

Ghost/Morin is the dream.  Hope it works out!

I think his production will also be a result of how Hak uses him this year.   Hak needs to let Ghost be Ghost and not try to play him like a defensive dman b/c that is not what he is...

I am genuinely hoping that Hak's treatment of Ghost had more to do with that the team needed last year than long term (which in and of itself is probably short sighted of him, but far less dangerous than insisting that Ghost become a different player altogether than where his obvious skills lie).

 

If Hakstol was really trying to turn Ghost into Provo, then he should have been fired on the spot.

You have a Ghost and a Provo.  You need to use each for what he's good at or you might as well not have either.
