We can dream. Dude checks a few boxes. Could even overlook he was a Bruin.

Nick "Don't call me Shirley" Kypreos.

He showed confidence, desire and a sense of humour. He's an 18 year old speaking in a foreign language. Good interview!

If he's not going to score with his wide angle shots then he has to at least start creating rebound opportunities. Start shooting at his feet Gio!

We need some more finish men or is it Finnish men.

Revisiting 1998 in my mind (previous thread) I'm reminded of how I felt when we first hired Vinyo. I was so excited that we had a promising young Francophone coach who could grow with us through the years. Fast forward to the present and it will be sad to see him achieve success with the team that possibly beats us out. On a related note, how do you think Canuck fans are feeling about his success? Lol It certainly suggests that perhaps there are some shortcomings in their lockerroom.

The team does look poised to be on the rise for a while. It's just that as a Hab fan I've become leery. With the youngest team in the league in 1998 (making the playoffs) I thought the future was bright. Then the Higgins/Ryder era got me excited for the future again. We know how that worked out. Call me jaded but I've seen it change all too quickly in the recent past.

Good observations Dull. I wasn't thinking about those specific examples. He certainly can be Kovy-like with the puck at the blueline on the PP. As to your original question I'm not sure it's too difficult for MB, get him signed longterm for the lowest amount you can.

PK needs to learn that less is more and, I can't stress this enough, he needs more help, offensively and defensively, from his teammates.

You know when PK first started with us I was amazed at how good he was defensively. I think he's trying to be everything right now and it hurts his all around game. With better offensive production from the whole team I think we would see him pick his spots better.
