on the cycle Posted February 18, 2015 Share Posted February 18, 2015 Brian Dumoulin http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php? player=33896 Listed at 6'4" 219Lbs on ahl site 23 years old Shoots left physical two way guy who likes to jump up in the play. Good skater with alot of size. I have heard he makes some bad decisions in his own zone sometimes when under pressure. Probably needs to be on a pairing with Tanev or (more likely) Corrado. He is pushed down to around 5th/6th on the depth chart of Penguins defensive prospects could be picked up for some veterans such as Higgins/Hansen and a later round pick. This is the value I've heard he is worth I don't know if that's completely fair value, but it seams like a good pickup. Jared Tinordi http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=20706 Listed at 6'6" 225lbs on nhl site 23 years old (22, turns 23 on feb. 19) shoots left Shutdown, physical guy with good skating ability. Don't look at his points to see how valuable he is. He isn't going to be had for cheap either, someone with his size and skating ability aren't easy to find and the Canadiens are very high on him. Reports are Tinordi is unhappy with being buried in the ahl so he could be had for a veteran forward like Higgins or Hansen and a B level Prospect. Again this is what I've read he's worth I don't know if it's completely accurate. I think it would be a good pickup, helps out defensively and physically. A knock is he probably won't put up big numbers but he is compared to Willie Mitchell (but bigger). Taylor Aronson http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=27126 Listed at 6'1" 205lbs 23 years old shoots right A bit of a surprise he was in the echl for the last 3 years but has broken out in the ahl. Kinda a jack of all trades good skater, good size, good puck skills and offensive ability, as well as good defensive ability. Not really (as the saying goes) a master of any of them but solid all around. The best thing about him is he would be an affordable pickup especially with Nashville wanting to compete they may be able to sell someone from our bottom 6 to get him. He may not be nhl ready but he will be with another season in the ahl. People really seem to like him but he is severely buried by depth and won't get a chance with Nashville so it's something to look at. Those are just 3 defensive prospects I think could be good pickups. Who else does everyone think is a good option? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
