Re: 2019-2020 Gopher Hockey Season Thread

He could maybe be a depth guy in the NHL but I agree that he isn't a complete package like Haula. Like we said he'd probably still play on some of the better gopher teams but he'd be further down the depth charts and certainly not on a top PP unit (but probably on the PK unit).

I know "shoot the puck" is often mocked, but the Gophers need to take more shots on the PP. They pass and pass and pass and turn the puck over.
The passes don’t accomplish much either, it’s almost like they’re passing to defer to someone else rather than passing to create an opportunity.
