    Interesting: Chytil is the only NYR pick from the past four drafts to play in the NHL.

    That can't be a good thing.

    People were saying that at the draft while everyone here bitched about it. He was a good pick.

    Who is everyone? Don't lump the entire forum into one group like that, as if every single user actually did that.

    I did a big write up but it was deleted on some bullshit refresh.

    Anyways, tldr version in that Gropp, Fontaine, Pionk, Crawley, Graves are garbage and The Pack are in dire straits.

    I think that was mentioned during the draft...because he was so young he slipped, but he would've been top 5-10 this year.

    Nothing positive at all with Pionk? I was pretty sure that was going to be the case with the rest of the guys you mentioned but I thought he had a chance.

    I'm just scouting boxscores, but, he's providing no offense to speak of and seems to be, at best, surviving defensively.

    It's still pretty early for him and could be adjusting, but he was touted as a guy that could "step right in to the NHL". It doesn't look like the case at all.

    Hartford doesn't have forwards that score goals with any consistency, so I'd imagine it's pretty difficult for defensemen to put up points.

    Perhaps, though they do employ a few proven AHL commodities.

    Like I said, it's hard to know without watching, but one thing that is clear is that they're a pretty shitty team and at least part of that is likely contributed to the failure of some of our younger guys to make an impact.

    Yea, I can buy that. But it's just hard to evaluate a D-man's impact by just watching box scores in this case. And he has generated a lot of shots (35 in 21 games) and pucks just haven't gone in. A couple of different bounces and his stat line is very different. I think he's generally partnered with Ryan Graves and, between the two of them, they have 0 goals on 73 shots. That's bound to change eventually.

    Though they're arguably missing an important one in Carey, who would probably have played first-line center.

    Pack beat a very good Rochester club in a SO last night.

    Quiet night for Chytil as far as points go, but Gropp scored and Lettieri had an assist.

    They play an even better Marlies club tonight.

    Can someone tell us why DeAngelo isn't producing down in the AHL? Three points and -6 in 13 games sounds terrible.

    Been wondering the same thing. I don’t watch the pack so hopefully someone who does can chime in.

    Without watching any games my hope is that they've specifically asked him to focus on his defensive shortcomings.

    I don't believe that they've forbidden him to prove his known strengths.
