"The Skies The Limit" For Mo Seider

via Sportsnet,

On this edition of One Big Question, the Hockey Central panel discuss and debate which NHL player, excluding Connor McDavid, Auston Matthews and Cale Makar, would be the most valuable to start a franchise with.

Keith Yandle picked Mo Seider. Watch at Sportsnet.


On this edition of Take Your Pick, the Hockey Central crew takes a look at Jordan Binnington's antics, choosing between Bo Horvat or Dylan Larkin, and if Jason Robertson can score 60 goals this season.

Watch at Sportsnet, the Larkin talks starts at the 1:30 mark.


I'm not really sure what's going on with Mo this year, but I don't think he's playing with the same level of confidence he had last year. Raymond has had his struggles this year too, but he doesn't seem to lack any confidence.

From what I've seen, Mo has made more bad decisions with the puck so far than he did all last year. Maybe it's trying to adapt to playing with Chiarot. Maybe it's just the old "sophomore slump."

Personally, I'd like to see him play a few games with Maatta while Chiarot plays with Hronek — just to see if that helps.


I think Mo's issues are related to playing with Chiarot. Ben is always leading the rush whenever he can. Which was what Mo was doing last year. Now he has to stay back to cover for Ben.


If that's true (and I'm leaning towards that conclusion myself), it's why I'd like to see Mo play a few games with Maatta. He's very similar in style to Staal so it may help Mo to focus more on playing his old style.
