  1. Jordan Subban Talk

    Subban's not ready, and there's nothing wrong with that. I think his season this year has gone about as well as anyone could've expected to be - he's been effective offensively, putting up good point totals, but he still needs to round out his defensive game and use his mobility to check players to compensate for his lack of size. Can't ask for a much better coach to learn it all under than Travis Green.
  2. [Official] 2015-16 Utica Comets Thread

    My best guess on the Comets forwards once Prust gets added to the lineup: Shinkaruk-Zalewski-Grenier Gaunce-Friesen-Archibald Higgins-Hamilton-Bancks Kenins-Cassels-Prust It'd be great if they could get Blair Jones back soon, he could slide in for Cassels and then suddenly this forward group doesn't look so shaky. They may not be much of a threat to score but this is starting to look like a much more structured team than the one that couldn't buy a win not too long ago. The x-factor is Higgins/Prust's motivation to play well and whether either could be dealt by the deadline. And of course, the good health of both clubs and whether the Canucks move a guy like Vrbata.

    It would be, but its highly doubtful... Zalewski will be right on the cusp of making the team next year, and management is high on Gaunce but Grenier has taken a step back recently. His inconsistency is holding him back from taking the next step to the NHL and he's got to step it up to keep pace with guys like Zalewski (who's vaulted himself into the conversation with a great year). He did just have an injury so that may explain some of it but the marker on him has always been his consistency. He is a late bloomer (and the talent is there) so there's still hope for him to improve, he's more of a wild card than the others though.
  4. Matthew Beattie Talk

    He hasn't played a game at all this year, didn't play much last year either due to injury/not being effective enough to get in the lineup. No idea exactly why he hasn't been in the lineup this year but you get the sense at this point his situation is probably similar to Mike Williamson's, a late round pick who's most likely done with playing hockey.
  5. Mackenze Stewart Talk

    Stewart finally nabs his first goal of the season tonight; 1-2-3 in 14 games so far with Tri-City.
  6. [Rumour] Could Be Several Oilers On The Block

    A contender will pick up Purcell, he can be a solid middle 6 guy on a good team (aka something the Oilers aren't). Good luck getting anything back for the rest of them.
  7. K-Wing Talk

    6-5 win for the K-Wings tonight: Valk with 2G+2A, Fox with 1+1, Blomstrand gets 1+2. Alex Mallet also had two assists.
  8. [Rumour] Canucks In F Andrew Ladd Sweepstakes

    No thanks, we're not in the market for rentals and on the UFA market he's gonna ask for something like $6 million+ per on a long term deal and at age 30 he isn't going to improve over that time span. Once his offence dries up in a few years you're just going to be left with an untradeable contract eating up cap space. The only teams that should be looking to add Ladd are Cup contenders trying to win in the immediate future, and that isn't us.
  9. Lukas Jasek Talk

    Jasek's been loaned to AZ Havirov in the Czech 2nd division - just can't seem to stick with the big club. It'd be nice if he could just land some consistent playing time anywhere, so hopefully this move provides that opportunity for him. Coming to North America next season would probably be ideal though, as opposed to bouncing around like this.
  10. (Value of) Sedins' new contract ?

    If they still want to keep playing and are producing at a reasonable rate, I say 2 years at $6 million per. Having them form the second line with players like Horvat, McCann, Virtanen, Boeser, etc lead the charge offensively would be a dream. I'd love to see them win a Cup before they retire and to do that we need those young guys to develop into top players quickly.
  11. Lukas Jasek Talk

    Nobody right now, he was passed over in the import draft. But it'd be neat to see someone grab him for his Draft+2 year next year so he could get familiar with the North American game a little early.
  12. [Official] 2015-16 Utica Comets Thread

    The Marlies are the class of the AHL and the Comets are a bubble team with a bunch of lineup holes... tough to see that kind of score especially when they've done a good job this season of keeping all their games vs Toronto close. 6-1 at the end of the 2nd now.
  13. Adam Gaudette Talk

    Matson actually could've been a decent depth player, great on faceoffs as I remember... he was just devastated by injuries. I think he only player a handful of games with the Wolves for us. Gaudette definitely is showing more of an offensive upside though which is great to see. Side note, Gaudette got another goal today. His 17 points puts him fourth on his team in scoring now. 7th in Hockey East freshman scoring as well. Goal's at 40 seconds of the video below:    
  14. K-Wing Talk

    Fox the lone goal today in a 2-1 OT loss, assisted by Blomstrand and Cederholm. Evan McEneny also finally returned to the lineup from injury today, hadn't played in over two months.
  15. Thatcher Demko Talk

    20 save shutout for Demko tonight vs Massachusetts... 8-0 win. 7th shutout of the season!
