Trubisky isn’t a perfect prospect, but he’s well-rounded compared to the rest of this year’s draft class, except for maybe Deshaun Watson. Watson thought he should have been selected before Trubisky.
“You’re gonna have to live with the consequences that come with it,” Watson said Tuesday on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football.

So the precious young Hamrlik more than doubled the existing record. Yet, times were a little different in 1995-96. There was a little thing called offense. The Lightning defenders 65 points put him ninth in scoring – among defensemen. Four players (Brian Leetch, Ray Bourque, Paul Coffey and Chris Chelios) topped 70 points.
Overall, 12 players recorded more than 100 points in the season, topped by Mario Lemieux’s 161 points in 69 games. In a side note, the Lightning actually held him off the board in a game that year. On April 6th, 1996, he was held to only 3 shots in a 2-1 Penguins win. Granted, earlier in the year he had torched them for 6 assists in a game in a 10-0 Penguins win on November 1st. Hamrlik was a -3 in that game.
Lazar had a really good attitude while spending his time in Binghamton. As a matter of fact, he was willing to spend the season here with no repercussions. It’s a shame how he was dealt with.
And the recent handling of another top prospect in forward Colin White has been really bizarre, as he rode the pine in Ottawa just after three games in Binghamton before his call-up that eventually led to burning a year on his ELC. Three games people! It remains to be seen what the team does with him to start next season.
