In the same game? Or the same season? I only recognize half those names.

Same season, but there was a game where Steve McCarthy and Nolan Baumgartner were our top pairing so most of them did play in one game. It was brutal, Salo and Ohlund both got injured at the Olympics

It's all part of the plan.

 

Edler goes down now.

 

3 weeks from now Tanev goes down for 4 weeks.  

 

2 weeks in to Tanevs injury Henrik goes down for 4 weeks with an upper body injury.

 

Out of the playoffs by mid-January and trading Gudbranson; Sutter and maybe Tanev by the TDL 

 

Finish worst in the league for the first time in forever draft 4th after watching Toronto and Edmonton missing the playoffs but sliding in to the top 2 spots.

 

Draft Tkachuk or Merkley and hear Heffy lose his mind that Edler wasn't traded.  Guardian lose his mind because Benning and Linden just don't know.  5th line go on a 3 year tangent about why the player we took at 4th is a complete bust and omg look at who we missed out on.

 

And then start salivating about next year's can't kiss top 10 draft picks

For the ones rationalizing it by saying he will just be in the press box.... you have an extra forward in case they have to play.

 

You also reward guys who are going in the minors with call ups.  

 

There will I’ll be some dumb explanation by the Canucks that they want Goldobin to get some more games under his belt before he gets a call up.  We will also remember that when he signs in the KHL next season because he didn’t get a sniff when he earned it.  A team that is rebuilding and can’t score should be calling up goal scorers, and he knows it.

Yes, they are trying to not score on purpose.   They traded for Goldobin to never play him in NHL and any chance that he needs to work on aspects of his game are false and they are keeping him in AHL just to ensure they don't score.

 

Sound silly?   Well, that is what you are saying isn't  it?

No, I am saying they are making a bad decision.  Just like they made some bad decisions before.  They play the "he has stuff to work on" card all the time with some guys, which would be understandable if they didn't instead play worse players and just keep playing them when they are not producing or playing well.

I am also saying that from his perspective he is going to see it that way as well.  It is important to keep him engaged, and not getting the call up when he is the one that earned it is not the way to do it.  Even if it is him sitting in the press box a couple games and practising with the team, it is showing that they think he is close.

Not trusting the source, but fwiw:

 

Would like to see Goldobin given the shot, but considering the vet issue in Utica and his production so far it's likely Boucher who gets the nod.  That's fine though, if it's going to end up being mostly pressbox time for the next 3-4 weeks.

It could be Comets' leading scorer, Reid Boucher. They may want to keep the Goldobin, since he's young, at one place and develop there rather than travelling back and forth.

Yup, especially if it's going to be 3-4 weeks.  Solves several problems -- the vet issue being just one of them.  Sounds like Goldy's doing well, might as well keep him rolling.

Yeah, it makes too much logical sense for it to be Boucher getting called up. I heard Goldobin is getting some PK time down in Utica, so that's good to hear. That's another area of his game that he can improve while putting up points. We saw how much Virtanen changed in one year of remaining patient - some credit to Green as well. I hope Cull can help Goldobin in the same way - boost his confidence and hopefully make the Canucks roster full-time next year.

So you know better than Canuck management and coaching staff how to develop and execute their talent.   Good to know.

If the injury drags on, we may also see both.  I could see Boucher coming up first then, when Boucher nears the limit before he has to clear waivers again, call up Goldobin.
