Hey Kris, I got 2 quick questions for you...

Who is playin better right now, Brennan or Schistol???

Does JGL have a better shot to make Team Canada over Pysyk?

Cheers

3:03 - first question is difficult since they're only one game in, but I'm comfortable saying that Schiestel is the more NHL-ready guy right now. No slight against Brennan at all, because he's close as well, but a healthy Shiestel would probably be a similar liability level as a Gragnani.

JGL's offense is going to be hard to ignore (detractors will keep saying that the Q is an offensive league, and that the coach is a WHL guy). If Ryan Murphy somehow sticks with Carolina, that could open up a spot. Saying all of that though, Pysyk is still seen as a more well-rounded player who plays better defense. I can see Pysyk being penciled into their bottom pair regardless of Gudbranson possibly being available. Again, it's probably a few weeks early to think about.
