    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

    Manny I love lamp.

    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.

    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.

    He won’t sign long term in Columbus, so they need to move him now while he’s under team control for two years.

    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.

    The Taxi Squad is:

    Cholowski
    Lindstrom
    Rasmussen
    Smith
    Boyle
    Pickard

    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.

    Yup but they could make another move and still have roster flexibility for now, especially if Helm goes on IR

    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.

    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.

    Manny I love lamp.

    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

    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.

    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.
