According to a Utica fan who attended the game on reddit Juolevi is not looking great. Says he would not be on the roster if not for his draft position.

Isn't reddit as bad as hf for Canuck and Canuck prospect info? I don't know personally....have never been to that site.

You're more likely to get fan-based outlooks than official perspectives, that's for sure.

People there are generally more casual fans, but they tend to be a lot more level headed than on hockey specific forums. At least in the Canucks subreddit.

So if everybody makes it through waivers the Comets start to look kind of stacked, right? And if Gaudette comes later there's little doubt.

And our young guys, who are in the AHL to develop, get less opportunity.

And if that happens this time, Trent Cull gets fired, I think (in fact, if that were to happen you could change that to I hope.)

If everybody clears there will be the exact same amount of opportunity for the young players. All of the guys waived today have veteran status so they will only be taking time away from other vets on the AHL squad.

That's what I was thinking.

 

Just with the forwards:

 

Boucher Gaudette MacEwan

Baertschi Graovac Lind

Goldobin Hamilton Jasek

Whoever Whoever Gadjovich

What would be the problem there?

Yep.  If all three clear the Comets will have 9 vets and only 6 can dress each game so there will be three healthy vet scratches assuming no injuries and call ups.  None of the young prospects will sit if Biega, Baertschi and Goldobin end up in Utica.  Hopefully plugs like Bancks and Hamilton will be sitting.

Loving the scoring potential for the Comets this year. Thinking of buying the AHL-TV package.

 

Having said that, per the AHL Insider today, Palm Springs will be the 32nd team in the AHL, starting in 21-22 as Seattle's farm team. Writing on the wall?

If I had to guess, then Bancks, Hamilton and Camper may get the short end of the stick as the AHL-only contract holders.  I suppose it's possible the Canucks could loan a vet out.

 

I'm curious about Utica's D with Biega going back to Utica.  The right side is, unusually, pretty packed with Biega, Rafferty, Chatfield and Eliot.  I assume someone is going to spend time in Kalamazoo just so they're not sitting too much.

And Woo on the way up.

 

From not enough to too many. That's the kind of difficult decision you want your bosses making. Now we need to stack the Center ice position the same way.

 

How long till Madden?
