The kid is really well spoken and humble. I think this guy will be a great player for hopefully many years…

However, he’s gonna have to Lose the Pirates Cap… shut eye

This kid actually has a personality, while remaining very down to earth.

Hate to say, but jumping from the update on Larkin above, there
are a lot of guys in the league who just have little to no respect for their peers.
Seider is potentially so good, and as a big physical kid is going to draw a lot of attention. He’s not dumb. He took some big hits in the SHL and i’m sure he’ll be expecting even more physical pushback in the NHL.

Deterring dirty hits and stuff after the whistle isn’t easy.
But how is this team going to respond going forward?

Detroit is going to be breaking in more younger players.
It sounds like Smith is an outside possibility as an expansion draft
casualty. I’d give Smith a chance to play a regular shift all season and keep McIlrath at least off and on. How much is it worth it to go for intent to injure plays knowing McIlrath is coming after you? It’s not like this team has to worry about avoiding penalties to gain every possible point quite yet.
