    A couple of posters expressed concern about Anderson's foot speed after the Islanders game, so I focused on that watching the Philly game. I understand that sedatives were administered to the entire team before the game, but I have to say that I noticed several sequences where more powerful skating would have gotten Anderson possession. Yes, it's way too early to judge, but let's just say I don't think many NHL team's would trade the 7th pick in this year's or next year's draft for Anderson. By contrast, they all would trade the 21st pick for Chytl.

    Anderson has already said he needs to work on his speed this summer.

    I think he skated better this game than the previous few. Heís already a better skater than Stepan was at this age. Lias is a smart player, heíll be able to get o the right spots. His game is built on smarts,not speed.

    Stepan may be slow, but he still put up more points than anyone on this team did this season.

    I did the exact same thing and it was painful to watch. Luckily he's still 18(19?) so his body may not be fully "evolved" phsyically, but it certainly is a issue I hope they adress right away.

    1.) #1 center
    2.) Leadership
    3.) Defenseman. Type of guy needed will be based on coach/system. Must be mobile and reliable in own zone.

    I would say the major need is a player that is a goal scoring threat is a must as well.

    Get a #1c and shift Zibanejad to wing. Let him worry about shooting instead of... anything to do with being a center.

    Id like to see more of him on the wing before a permanent move, but I agree, they need a number 1 center. Do they make a play for Statsny then in the off season? I wouldn't mind him if he can come at the right price.

    No. Tavares this summer, if not, Seguin next.

    Don’t look much further ahead than that,as we don’t know what we will have

    Unless we trade down, that might be hard.

    Isn’t as bad as people think, if guys play well, progress, bounce back, whatever you want to call it, especially when potentially looking at using a new system.

    There’s not a top d available, those that are won’t change much.

    Fixing 1 & 2 will help make this defense crew less of an issue

    I agree. The defense wasn't as bad as they could have been. Better offensive players would take off the defensive pressure. I liked O'Gara and Gilmour's play.
