MarkParkinson14: (C) Mangiapane was a tough player to grade because the sample size was so small and the results were so mediocre. Part of his lackluster 10 game stretch could very well be attributed to his time spent shackled to the Flames 4th line. That’s an almost insurmountable obstacle for a young player to overcome during his first stint in the NHL. I’d like to see more of Mangiapane when he isn’t being set up to fail so early in his young career.
MilhouseFirehouse: (C-) I’d like to see more of Mangiapane, but over a longer stretch. AHL players don’t always transistion to the bigs like they used to, so while Andrew’s Stockton numbers would lead us to look for something more, I’m not even sure if that’s there yet. At 22 years old there’s no rush, see how he factors into conversations next year.
MGMacGillivray: (C) Mark kind of touched on it already but I agree that it’s hard to judge Mangiapane simply based on who he was played with while in Calgary and the limited action he saw. He’s one of only six players drafted after pick #100 in the 2015 draft to have played ten or more games so I’m pretty sure we don’t have much to complain about. Hopefully he pushes for a spot next year after his season was ended prematurely with injury.
