Article: A Taste Of Reality Will Help Jesper Wallstedt Rebound From His Debut

Recommended Posts

I like Kalisha's take, this was a tremendous learning experience for The Wall. He needs a few more bricks in it. The biggest issue I saw from him was adjusting to NHL shooting speed. His angles seemed to be good, and he moved from side to side well, but on the goal that Pavelski got him on, he drifted, something he could do in the A as not many could hit that shot. 

To me, I think he needs about 4 more NHL starts this season if he's going to be ready to play backup next season. You could argue, even this, would be rushed due to his age, but he's always excelled in playing up. 

As for bringing the kids over, I think we've got to make a place for Yurov. If we're going to improve next season, it's going to have to be from within....unless Spurgeon doesn't recover and is destined for LTIR for the rest of his contract. I'm voting that we start sending up smoke signals for him to come over. (I assume his contract situation is the same as it was a few weeks ago)
