He really doesn't have a NHL caliber center to get him the puck, and for now, he seems to have a pass first mentality. Hopefully once he gets to the NHL he uses he shot more because he has a good one.

this notion that he is a potential 20 goal scorer that some fans and media continue to perpetuate must end. he's got 10 goals in 33 games in the ahl, the idea that he should be given a tryout on sid's wing or anything like that is ridiculous.

Surprise: Sutter
Disappointment: Malkin (I hate to say it, but I feel as though he's going fall off a bit behind Crosby)
