    Is it likely that this is the breakthrough that management has been waiting for, or is it more likely a fluke like Eller scoring 4 in one game way back when?

    Its a nice start, but too small a sample to read a lot into it.

    Something about JDR doesn't convince me he'll be an NHLer.

    But I can't put my finger on it, I may subconsciously just think that because over the last three years he's been called up he's shown little

    I see a lot of Sammy Pahlsson in DLR - size combined w fluid skating ability and natural defensive awareness at a young age created unrealistic expectations from an offense perspective.
    Pahlsson was a very important cog in the Ducks wheel during their Cup contention years, and was highly value add to the young Hawks team too - it took Pahlsson to hit his mid-late 20's before he found his groove

    It was just two years ago that Baldy compared JDLR to Jordan Staal. Wow.

    de la Rose has the tools to be a decent defensive forward, to me what gets him over the hump is more aggressive play. Not banging and crashing, but just playing with a little more reckless abandon.

    I think you have this backwards. The way you wrote it, you're advocating that DLR take dumb penalties and risk his health. Not sure if that's a great idea in today's NHL.

    He has shown very little offensive ability to be anything more than a potential 4rth line center.

    LOL, well that's the decision every fringe player has to take. If you play it safe, you probably never make it. If you play with a little bit of an edge like Gallagher and Shaw , you have an NHL career.

    IceCaps win 2-0 . Lindgren 24 saves for the shutout. Marlies lose, IceCaps a bit closer to the final playoff spot.

    IceCaps played a back to back with Lehigh. Lost the first game 5-4 in OT yesterday . Tonight they lost in the shootout 3-2. Last night they blew a 4-0 lead. So two valuable points lost in the quest for the last playoff spot.

    Audette has 3 points total in both games. Carr, MacMillian, Friberg, Hanley had 2 points total.
