I chuckled sadly at the fake power forwards shade. I'll readily admit that Killorn has been my (and others) personal whipping boy (or kick-em dog, in bpmb parlance) for the last two seasons, but sweet merciful jeezis the guy plays soft for a supposed power forward. Apparently he does all the little things well, like falling down in the corners, being slow, being an overhyped PKer, and being basically useless for all but 3 weeks a year. So much leadership though.

Would have loved to have Ferland, but we all know Coop would have just played him sparingly on the fourth line (see treatment of: Erne, Adam; Miller, JT vs. Palat, Ondrej; Killorn, Alex).

Is it time for training camp yet?

He had 54.2 Corsi-For% (very good) and +8 differential on his takeaway to giveaway ratio which is also solid. His contract isn't great but he isn't the liability everyone makes him out to be as long as he is used correctly.
