Kirk Luedeke talked to me about him as a great sleeper pick, I’ll try to get him on the show Monday again.

  • The Scouting Report: John is a smooth skating offensive defenseman…Good size…Is a play making defensenman…Has great poise with the puck…Has the ability to run our powerplay.
  • The Black Book: He’s a strong, smooth skater with good lateral movement and ability to rush the puck up ice. His gap control is underrated and he has a very good stick. He’s a possession defender than can carry the puck, hold on to it and keep opposing forwards to the perimeter.
  • ISS: Good two-way defender who shows upside in all situations and a work ethic to improve his game.
  • Future Consderations: Marino is a mobile, offensive-minded defenseman. In any of the three zones, he loves the puck on his stick. In his own zone, he likes to rush the puck and while he moves well, he is more effective passing the puck up the ice as he sees the ice well and hits his teammates in stride.

    With that last name, shouldn’t we say he could “Quarterback” the powerplay?

    Pastor of Disaster,

    Well played sir.

    I’m beyond frustrated at the mistakes being made that indicate this is still a team under the control of the old regime.

    That Marincin trade is the Jason Smith deal 2.0 Good gawd…

    They could have either kept a player, or dealt multiple high picks in a deep draft to acquire a replacement who’s proven less, THEN waste more picks acquiring a player type who is easily obtainable on the UFA market. At least they moved Ewanyk’s contract space but come on…

    At least we have Talbot, but every other move aside from the easiest move in history (run up and pick Connor) has been UGLY.

    He’s a Boston boy, but if he’s committed to Harvard, probably too smart for Neely and his Bruins-type mold.

    Russia x2!

    EDIT: Miroslav is Czech, not Russian.
