Well that's a bit debatable. They had some good games and great team play but damn it they had some break downs and lazy play. Also the dumb luck helped quite a bit :D
Of course they are still juniors so it's more or less expected.
Also if there is a one thing I picked up from the tourney is that younger Honka reminds me waaay too much of his brother in all the wrong ways. I hope that Nill and the scouts stay away from that one.

Yeah, that was a great grab! Free assets, even if he doesn't transition to NHL. At least we now have guys in the system who know how to put the puck in the net.

But he can't officially sign until March 1st. So for now it's "official"

Given the way the Stars draft, I'm a little surprised they didn't go after Justin Brazeau, another unsigned overager who is second in OHL scoring. Brazeau is 6'6 and is the same age as Tufte. Just think, they could have paired those two and moved Oleksiak to forward to round out the "tree line".
