Thats not bad. especially with no points on the powerplay. Everyone would like to have seen more points, but he should do better in his next 82 games. I'd like to see him instigate more plays than he's doing. Right now, he's living off his linemates playing a peripheral type of game. Most of his goals have been tapins. I don't see the hard work and getting involved l hope to, which was a strong suit in junior.

Lafreniere, Goodrow and Strome are showing really good chemistry the past couple games. I'm starting to see when Panarin is with Strome, Strome plays with just Panarin and seems to blow off third guy on the line. Which makes me wonder if stubborn Gallant will put Panarin with shitty Chytil and keep Gauthier there. Or maybe he will try Panarin with Strome and Lafreniere and see if Panarin will finally realize he has a third forward on his line.

itsmcilrathtime - 2021-12-11 4:01 PM Don’t expect young players to put a ton of points when they aren’t getting first power play time
Nobody expects young players to get points when they are not getting quality PP tine. Most made the leap he's not getting points because he's not getting the PP time, except you, who needed to write it down to figure it out.
