    Watching KHL highlights, Prokhorkin looks more comfortable playing center instead of LW.

    Let's not mince words, the dude is a bit of a ham. There's always been something that seemed less than Kosher about him. If he's going to bring home the bacon he'll need to belly up and reach deep into his loins and go hog wild.

    No, I didn't have anything better to do. Come on June 24th!!!

    Perhaps, but this team is so overwhelmed with center talent, there's no way he would have cracked that lineup. I guess not all centers can transition to wing.

    Honestly I'm glad he didn't come in a flash too much on a bottom feeding team, if he had we probably don't see Gabe this year at all. In a different circumstance he probably becomes a serviceable nhl middle six, but he has a ceiling and we don't want it to get in the way of the cups of coffee this team needed.

    I thought Prokhorkin brought skill which we saw on the one goal when he danced down the middle of the Ducks defense, he could win face offs and he has size. Which all these little guys don't have. Lizotte is tenacious, but gets pushed around and off the puck by the bigger defensemen. My guess is that there was a language barrier after Kovalchuk left and with this pandemic, maybe the kid wanted to be by family which is in Russia. Yeah, he didn't pan out. 90% mental.

    That was a good roast.
    You have a rare sense of humor.

    But I've got no beef with that.

    We can continue this, to-marrow.

    I was pleasantly surprised by his game. He was better than I expected. That being said, there's a dozen guys to fill his spot.
