Doesn't he get an automatic raise if they qualify him?

 

My guess is they'd rather sign him as a free agent. He doesn't deserve more than 900k at this point.

Pouliot doesn't deserve more than 900k ..... but Granlund, who missed a quarter of the season and massively dropped off his points production from the previous year, deserves a raise?

Granlund isn't being replaced by Hughes or Ollie.

This might be the 1st training camp in a long while where defensemen are actually battling for spots instead of us desperately trying to fill holes.

And what if none of these guys are ready?

 

If you ask me, Granlund could be replaced by Gaudette, Motte, or Leipsic.

Granlund plays 3 forward spots, the other guys not so much, though Motte plays left and centre.

Gaudette may replace him at centre, but till you know for sure, Granlund is needed on the roster.

I remember when that happened with our forward group.  It's a good feeling eh?

Maybe Gaudette, but the other two?  No way.

How many "bottom six" players do we currently have, that have a good chance of a roster spot next year?

 

Gaudette, Motte, Leipsic, Gaunce, Gagner, and Virtanen. Didn't even mention Archibald, Goldobin, or Peterrsson.

I am taking the middle ground. I would put Gaudette and Leipsic ahead of Granlund, but not Motte.

 

My prediction, which could easily be wrong, is that Gaudette and Leipsic are on the 4th line to start the season, along with Virtanen.

 

Granlund could be 13th man, he could play shutdown with Sutter on the 3rd line, or he could even play on the second line. Or, who knows,maybe someone could get traded.

 

At this stage there is a lot of uncertainty and I don't pretend to have any great insights.

Good that Pouliot signed a one year deal.

Hope he gets better and proves himself.
