Is this like back in the old days of not getting a low number till you prove you are in the NHL to stay? Montour good enough of a prospect to get his own thread?

 

I think he's looked like he belongs. A better option than several of the other guys that play for us.

I hope he and Stoner have switched places between here and SD.

 

Permanently.

I think the days of low/high numbers are gone. Given that guys like Rakell have kept their numbers.

 

He looks good enough but its been a small sample size. Theodore looked ready last season but never stuck.

“For me, it’s been pretty quick the last couple of years in learning the position defensively,” Montour said. “A couple of years ago, I was playing junior and kind of had the reins of doing whatever. College was kind of the same way. If I’m there to play offense, I’ll go, go, go.

 

“Coming here, Dallas and Marty really kind of picked on me about picking the right spots. And being a little smarter in that spot. Knowing when’s the right time to go. A lot of credit to them on helping me to do that, transitioning this way. I felt like it’s been good so far.”

This guy is a huge bright spot in our future. What a great end of the season and playoffs. I mean hockey at the highest level and he was RIGHT THERE.

This kid is making me totally forget about Shea Theodore.

 

I like his progress, and he's already better than Theo ever was here.

 

Good skater and great shot and even more confidence. His defense is coming along well, too.

 

Definite top-four player.

If you are going to wear number 26 (remember, I'm a big Pahlsson fan), you need to live up to that number.  So far Montour has been deemed worthy of the number in my eyes.

Sami did set a standard here.

 

Best shutdown forward in franchise history, and one of the five MVP's on our Cup team, in my eyes. Scotty, Jiggy, Teemu, Pronger, and Pahlsson... in no particular order.

Montour is a DYNAMIC player.  Of all our young dmen we have accumulated throughout the years, he's my favorite aside from Lindholm. 

 

Pahlsson was so damn good.  One of the best pure shutdown forwards ever.  I agree with what (I think it was May) said at the 07 celebration.  Moen-Pahlsson-Niedermayer could have collectively won the Conn Smythe.

Completely agree.

 

The top forward line on every one of our opponents couldn't find their asses with both hands playing against that shutdown line of ours. They were incredible. Neutralization at its finest.

That line was fun to watch.  And Hell to play against.
