Sweet revenge for Juraj Slafkovsky

Exactly one month ago, on January 15th, Sportsnet had some fairly harsh comments about Juraj Slafkovsky. It's still not clear why they went after him.

It seems like their analysis was a year behind. Slaf was already playing very well, even if the points weren't necessarily following. Here's a reminder of their comments.

"Sportsnet:

- «What about moving Juraj Slafkovsky down the lineup on the 4th line?»


- «We'll wait & see where he'd shuffled into the lineup tonight.»

Juraj has been on the Habs 1st line for nearly a month now

Do a single one of these dudes ever watch a Habs game?"

Since then, the 19-year-old forward, as a reminder, has collected 12 points in 11 games, and there's no indication that it will stop, quite the opposite. His progression is consistent.

It's a sweet revenge for the Slovak, who, without even having to reply with his mouth, answers through the barrels of his cannons.
