Some early thoughts on Colin Greening. I'd never heard of him until last season, I'd never seen him play until this season but there certainly is something to be said about a very big, strong dude who can skate like the wind and, clearly, has some hands/finish.
I, for one, thought he was likely miscast on the top line with Giggles and Bustler but after 14 games, I think I'm ready to buy in.
My first thoughts of Soylent were "Brad Isbister showed flashes...didn't he?". Big, strong with a could-be imposing style of play all lumped Soylent into the Isbister mold, but after seeing how hard he plays every shift and how he goes directly to the net (not to mention his awareness of where to be when Giggles is carrying the puck in) is enough to have me think he could be a true gem.
With him and the crop of other young'ns like Anacondra, Bustler, Weer-kosh and the true gem coming over from Sweden on the back end (Runblad is going to blow us all away...I'm mesmerized by Karlsson's raw talent, but Runblad is a step or 3 above that...scary) we could have a nice team to watch next year and for many years to come.
now...Bell has purchased my employer so I have to listen to the "Town Hall Meeting" now...wonder if I'll still have a job?
