15 points in 23 games seems p good for a 19 year old defenseman in the SHL
17 points in 23 games now. On pace for the best under 20 D season in the league ever
And Brome really seems to be in their plans this year
Man would this be awesome
Yes, please. Would be a huge piece in the rebuild imo.
I would offer a protected first (top 8 this year or top 5 next year) plus Berggren to get that deal done. No idea what Jarno wants. I can only imagine a trade negotiation between he and Steve.
Given the ages of the players, I’d consider this too.
Yep. Love Mantha but we need a C.
Does Dubois have another gear offensively?
22 year old centers don’t become available often. I can’t see anything happening until the draft after this season unless someone offers the kitchen sink
I believe he does. I would say he could be a consistent 70 point guy.
Why is this guy available?
He won’t sign long term in Columbus, so they need to move him now while he’s under team control for two years.
If he hates Columbus, that's enough for me.
26 year old DMan who seems to have some offensive ability. Had 32 pts in 42 games last year in AHL and 3 pts in 9 games in NHL
I was thinking today, have any of our cast offs from last year signed anywhere? Amazing we played with a roster of 5-7 guys who can't even get another job now. Ehn, Howard, Golobouf, Abby, Ericsson, Daley, Bowey and im sure I'm missing someone.
Ehn plays for Frolunda, and Daley looks like he's out of hockey as he has a job with the Pens.
But yes, lots of undesirable players there for sure.
Svech has to clear waivers to be assigned to the taxi squad. I don’t think he will be claimed, but it’s possible.
I assume that he, Ras, Cholo and Smith will make up a majority of the taxi squad until the AHL season begins.
I’m trying to temper my expectations for Zadina, but all the reports from camp are exactly what you want to hear. Guy is playing two way hockey, hunting pucks and driving play. I wanted to see Ryan with Fabbri and Zadina, but now it seems like Namestnikov has stepped in and done a great job with those two. Keep that like together and see what happens. I think it’s a good mix, though.
I think 20 goals is doable for him if he plays 50 games.
It’s crazy that we still haven’t named Larkin captain.
DeTox, pls update thread icon.
The Taxi Squad is:
It’s about what I figured.‘I thought Svech might make it, but they took a second goalie instead. It’ll probably look a lot different come the start of the AHL season.
Bultman pointed out that our roster currently sits at 22, so we have one free spot.
Not sure what happened to Djoos though. He isn't listed on the roster or in the taxi squad or players assigned to GR list. Also don't see Helm listed, but he may be going to IR
Djoos has an exemption while he quarantines I believe.
Probably explains the open roster spot, for him when that's done
Yup but they could make another move and still have roster flexibility for now, especially if Helm goes on IR
Looks like he fought back some tears....
Looks like Greiss is getting the nod tonight
Anyone who has an autograph collection or wants some wings signed 8x10 or cards, the team is doing something pretty cool this year. If you donate money to a charity of a players choice, they will sign cards, photos up to 8x10 or a puck for you. Prices are pretty reasonable too and go to charity.
For example its a $10 donation to Detroit Dog Rescue for Bertuzzi, $20 to Spectrum Children's hospital for Mantha, $30 to special Olympics for Larkin.
Sam Gagner squaring up to Dougie Hamilton didn't end in a death, so that's good.
Getting dumped on in shots but there does seem to be a level of competency on D that was obviously lacking last season.
Do you know any good sites to order the photos from?
Not a shocker, this team still isn't good. Team still has too many forwards who don't add much offensively.
Team needs more firepower but Blash’s system is so brutal. We never enter the neutral zone with speed and we waste so much possession trying to establish a net front presence.
But also, Namestikov in front instead of Ras or Bert....??? Curious. Blash was fine as a stop gap during the rebuild/tank but he needs to go.
Think the plan is one more year of rebuild / tank so they didnt seem it a priority to replace him. Unfortunately dont think there is much offense at top of this years draft, but may be able to find a future 1D to pair with Seider.
Going to need Zadina to take a step forward and Berggren, Veleno and Raymond to come add some offense
Only 55 games to go
I get that, but the guys need to start knowing and feeling what its like to win and at this point Blash is just retarding the kids development.
Yea the complete lack of offense isn't good for guys like Zadina development
This team needs a legitimate top 2 center to further Zadina’s development.
I like Veleno, but he isn’t that. I am very high on PLD, but I’m not sure we can make it happen. Problem is, that player might not even exist in the 2021 draft, so you’re likely having to make a trade to fill that role before 2022.
