“Cole did a lot of work for the team during the two seasons with us. We have several of us following its development. His former teammates and former supporters are proud of him.”
He believes that what we have seen in these five meetings is only a simple extension of Caulfield’s achievements in his college career.
Granato said: “He came to Montreal exactly in his own way of selling: a forward who can score big goals and spark plugs.”
“He brought youth, vitality and enthusiasm to the fans. The people of Montreal know that there is something special before them, and his response is a great start,” he continued.
Not to mention that his teammates seem to have been inspired by new energy since his arrival. Whether by coincidence or not, the atmosphere of the team’s entourage has completely changed, and the Canadian has just won three games.
“As a former player, I can say that every time a young leg enters the locker room, it will bring a second wind to the team. We feed on the energy of the arriving young man. You will see the young man smile , It brought back memories. He continued.
The 20-year-old American had to wait until the fourth game to make the red light flash for the first time, but the wait was worth it. Caulfield scored a hero in overtime, scoring his first two goals in his NHL career.
Fortunately, the Wisconsin native can emulate Mario Lemieux and hit the target when he first appears.
Granato said: “This first appearance is a perfect indication of who he is: he started to leave the area, increased his speed, moved himself into the neutral area, then entered the opponent’s area and threw a shot. Many people would say This is not a chance to score, because the shot comes from far away [et qu’il a raté la cible]However, if you look closely, the goalkeeper will move to one side and the shot will move to the other side. “
“This is one of Kerr’s main qualities. He has the ability to shoot ice hockey, but the goalkeeper doesn’t know exactly where he is going,” he added.
The analysis is more timely than when the former Los Angeles Kings player and the author of these lines discussed this paper at about the same time.
“The important thing is not only speed, but also accuracy. Cole’s shooting is very good, and he did not shoot from the same position as other players. At Saint-Louis [Vlamidir] Tarasenko has the same philosophy. He took a lot of pictures. After the team’s training on Tuesday, the Canadian masked man explained that sometimes his goal was to aim between the pads and sometimes under the goalkeeper’s arm.
