Thought we could use a general thread for tracking how gophers are doing in the pros… my question that brought this up, does Walker look a bit lost on every shift or am I just not used to the style of pro hockey (I only watch college)?
I didn't watch tonight's game, but in previous games I have thought he looks like he fits really well with Boldy and Freddy. His speed is still above average, he is controlling the puck and driving play, and seems to be playing quite confident.
You take a look at the list of Gopher D-men dating back to Jordan Leopold with Calgary and now with guys like Justin Holl and Brady Skjei. Also what are the chances Blake Wheeler finishes his career in Winnipeg?
