Oh man, it would sure be nice if Eriksson has a good WC's. Maybe that will convince another team to give him a try...

The Panthers have decided against loaning Aleksander Barkov to Team Finland for the 2019 IIHF World Championships so that can take the time to rest for the 2019-20 NHL season.

Wonder if Benning has anything to do with this to ensure he stays healthy for any minimal trade value he may have.  Granlund can still be an effective bottow six player, but feel that it may be timing to move on.

That's good news.  I think he would benefit from a long summer off.

Yep, me too.  It will be great experience for him but not sure it's the best thing for him physically.

I imagine it has more to do with Granlund not having a contract. Regardless if he's here or traded, he likely doesn't want to get hurt before locking into some security.

He probably wants to maintain his status amongst the national team so in the future for bigger tournaments, he remains on the radar. Building on his resume is also beneficial to him. He seemed really bored when he was in concussion protocol, so he probably just enjoys the game too much to have a long summer off.

Crosby is out.

 

 

Since 2003-04, Crosby has failed to play in the postseason on two occasions... one of these instances was because he was injured. Definitely a good idea for the guy to take a rest. He basically carried the Pens into the playoffs.

Cayden Primeau is an AHL goalie.  Pickings were apparently a bit slim for the USA.  I'll be disappointed if Demko doesn't win the starter position over those 2.

Schneider has had a nice bounce back season. I wouldnt be suprised if he was named starter.

.903 save% is anything but nice.  He's not a good goalie.
