I know right, and with injuries. Can't wait until we get couture, Torres and possibly Hertl later on.
for real, it will be a huge Boost!
The is probably the deepest Sharks team I have ever witnessed as a fan. We have player after player we could just plug right in and hardly miss a beat. We're doing this while missing three big-time stars/contributors. Sure we're not winning them all, but this team for the most part has been consistently good.
I've been very pleasantly surprised by some of the prospects I've been tracking in Worcester; there seems to be a ton of improvement happening with several players: Defensemen Doherty, Acolatse, Tennyson, and even Abelthsauser has been on the rise with strong play lately.
On offense you've got Freddie Hamilton lighting it up, with contributions kicking up from Travis Oleskuk, Brodie Reid, and Eriah Hayes. Another name to mention is young Yanni Gourde. There was huge talk about him potentially being a Brian Gionta type -- based on his stature -- to be a late bloomer and get a shot at some point. Gourde since moving back up to Worcester has been ridiculous. In 13 games, he's put up 17 points and a +5 rating (best on the team right now, Acolatse is 2nd with +4)
