I haven’t followed to see how poehling has progressed but haven’t heard much, so maybe not great? I have seen valimaki a cpl Times and looked good. Habs could use centres and D but with Suzuki and Kotka there now, maybe poehling is expendable? Pretty good post. Flames fans probably not fans of it though.

Ryan Phoeljng is actually progresing well Jimmy. he's producing at a point a game rytim this year with St Cloud wich is good because theyres not a lot of goals in that league compared to juniors. he's nowthe number 1 center of his team and workedalot on the defensive side of the game to get theyre. We knew when we drafted him that he hasn't going to be a number 1 center but knew he was a locked to at the veryleast be a Michael Bakclund type center. He could still be a second line center who pitches on the first when needs be. He was a safe pick to be at least a 30+ point center that play 200 foot game + well defensively. Je dosntget u Valimaki from Fales because they really like him. And mtl will have Kotka at first line butafter that we will need a good second center and Phoeling should be that guy. He should be are third center next year.

I think Calgary would say no. I think they need the D more than the F right now. They have a solid forward lineup and some analyst have said there's a log jam here with some guys like Bennet and Neal not getting enough playing time. Their D core is getting a little older and I think young Valimaki who is playing now is more valuable to them than a prospect Forward.

Just looked at poehlings numbers. Pretty solid for NCAA, if he’s good defensively like you’re hoping he should be good. Also I thought he was drafted before 2017. He’s younger than I was thinking. I thought he was 2015 or 16.

Habs fans, What is Poehling projected to be like? He was a mid first rounder right?
If he's good defensively like Jim says, puts up decent numbers, Could he be projected to be a real solid third line center maybe hopes of, Or higher?

That’s what boonboom said they project him to be. A 200ft centre who can chip in a bit of offense.

Hes a good two way player., I don't think he will be a star, I think the hope is that he can be a 2nd line center. however, I think more of a 3rd line, hopefully a shutdown kinda guy.

His projection as of now is a 3rd line center with 2nd line center being his ceiling. His stats could be even better this year with a little luck. I watched 2 of his games so far this year one they won 7 to 1 I think and he didn't have a point. The other he hit 3 goal posts. ( should fit right in with the habs) even though he gets power play time he's not the go to guy as two older undersized players get most of the better looks. He doesn't have any 1 elite skill but good all around with good size and speed.

Thing is calgary took so much time developing valimaki and he nhl caliber now, why trade to take a younger guy that may not be in the league for another 5 years.
