I always knew this kid was ultra talented, but wow, what a debut! 2 goals, and the second one was simply filthy! Great debut for the young kid, hopefully it will translate into a very successful career.

Should this guy have been on the waiver wire. I put a bid in for him just now.

Here was the 1st goal of his career. Look at the stick check he makes on the defense man to grab the puck.

I'd pick him up, and see what he can do. He was one of my sleepers coming into the season, and he has scoring ability. Obviously, the transition from the KHL game to the NHL game may be difficult, but what he showed yesterday was definitely promising. Good stick handler, has good balance, and a nice release. Definitely going to be an interesting player to watch for years to come.

I think he's way better than that, 25 guaranteed 35+ upside

He added another assist tonight. I picked him up on waivers and he was 3% owned now he's over 80%. I really think this guy is the real deal.

He got picked up straight after his first game in my league. Pissed off that I missed him.

Huberdeau too was drafted, released then picked up before I had a chance. At least I managed to draft Hodgson and I'm hoping Conchar maintains his scoring

He's the real deal. He isn't your typical rookie- he has been playing (and playing very well, a point a game..) against men in the KHL. He's legit... the only thing holding him back is the system in St.Louis and how stacked their forwards are. There's no way they hold him back now.
