This would be a good time to refresh me on who we really don't know much about...did I ever watch O'Connor...? Cam Lee is someone I need to watch...

I'm watching American this week, so I can throw them on the pile...
Watched Cam Lee for half of a game before I had to be done...if he was 18 and had this level of skill, I wouldn't be that interested...he'll be 24 before he's a North American pro...

I don't even have anything to say...I just don't find anything that he does very intriguing...

Mikey I can’t recall... did you watch any tape on O’Connor?

Nice write up on Drew O'Connor in the Trib:
Thanks to a growth spurt that saw him surge from a compact 5-foot-9 to a stout 6-foot-3, O’Connor earned a scholarship from Dartmouth and in two years developed into the Big Green’s “best player on the ice every game we played this season,” according to former Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy, a volunteer assistant coach for Dartmouth this past season.

O’Connor’s dominant sophomore season saw him finish with the fifth-most goals in the NCAA during the 2019-20 campaign and be recognized as the Ivy League Co-Player of the Year along with Cornell goaltender Matthew Galajda.

Anyone familiar with him?
Big rangy kid, plus skater. Definitely has some skill to him. Balanced attacker. Backchecks hard and comes back deep for a LWer. Not a world-beater, but clearly the best player on his team. Played a ton of time, sometimes 24, 25 minutes a night...PP/PK. Wasn't super sold on his hockey sense in my limited viewings. The size/skating/skill package for a 21 year old is workable. It'd be cool if we got a third liner out of this. It's all about the hockey IQ, if he's got it, he'll play...if it's only mid- or low-level, he probably won't make pension...but again, just passive viewings, he wasn't draft eligible (obviously), so he wasn't on my radar...
Ooh, I did...

I already don't like Cam Lee. Never saw him skate nor did I read anything beyond mikeys blurb from yesterday.

Just not enough syllables.

You'd think with all that extra time that he has from not writing out a long name, he could have practiced hockey more...

It's maddening. First how do you do a "retro" jersey without the proper retro logo? And okay fine you don't want to use the pigeon, why in the **** are they still using the Stadium Series logo from 2017? Who thinks this is a cool logo? It was fine for a one time thing but it should never be an official secondary logo.

I have a friend named Cam. He's an artist.

Good guy, but sometimes tough to deal with. :lol:

They clearly picked the word “retro” out of a hat, IMO.

Honestly doesn't look as bad as the leak when someone is actually wearing it.

Although, if for some idiotic reason they go with a black helmet, that would ruin it.

I actually really like the color scheme and the design. The alternate logo on the shoulder looks really cool with the yellow stick.

The logo on the crest though... it doesn't fit. Something about it doesn't look right. Maybe its the wrong gold. Maybe it would look better with black outlined in gold. Maybe just a totally different logo (pigeon) would have been the play.
