Sven Baertschi | LW


Recommended Posts

Indeed!!

 

Sven with a goal and an assist in their 5 -1 win.  Good chemistry with Jasek. And wears an "A"

 

(Although it was actually his 3rd of the season ... maybe his 1st with the "e" dropped from his name and the umlaut placed over the "a" instead)

Did Baer run over Benning's dog in the summer? We've gone down to about forward #18 on our depth chart with all our injuries and he wasn't even added to the taxi squad. Is Baer really number 20-22 on our F depth chart?

No kidding. Have been wondering the same thing.

He's not a fit for our team...out he goes!

I think Green has decided that Baertschi isn’t an option for the bottom-six, so he’d never draw into the lineup unless there was a clear need for a scoring winger (and one that couldn’t be filled with current depth options, or a waiver pickup).

 

Also, Baer seems to have really embraced his current situation, and by all accounts, is approaching his AHL stint like a true pro, providing veteran leadership, roster stability in Utica, and helping develop the young players, and share his experience and wisdom with the kids (guys like Jasek have spoken positivity about his impact).

 

It might very well be the case that Baertschi has asked not to be called up, unless it’s actually for a legitimate lineup role, rather than just being there as a spare body for insurance.

 

Going though travel and quarantine, just to sit on the taxi squad or be a healthy scratch, probably isn’t something he wants to do, at this point in his career, and especially during the pandemic.

 

Of course, if a real lineup spot opened up for him as a top-six winger, it’d be a great opportunity for him to showcase himself to try to earn another NHL contract, once he hits free agency. But I suspect that opportunity hasn’t ever been in the cards, so he’s just waiting out his contract, and trying to make the best of a bad situation.

Where is Sven. He shows as no games played in Utica this year. Not one.

Well, that is not correct.

 

Hockey DB has Sven listed as Baertschi. https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=120612

 

Originally his name is written like this: Bärtschi. But Baertschi is also okay.

So much irony around Baer, JB put himself in a serious Cap situation when he signed Ferland.  Ironic how they were seemingly concerned about Baer’s concussion situation and how he doesn’t fit their system so they decided to bury him in place of Ferland and Gaudette.  Now Ferland has played minimal games and out indefinitely with concussion issues and Gaudette is gone because he doesn’t fit their system.
 

All egos and burned bridges in my mind

This thread deserved a much-needed bump.

 

 

It was his third, Vintage. He is now at 13Games, 3 Goals, 7 Assists, 10 Points.

Guy works his way back from injuries and then the incompetent duo of JB and TG bury him in Utica while they played useless plugs like Roussel 

 

Yet another reason Aqua needs to clean house

Right. Cause he's not a defensive liability at all. He's only -9 through 13 games, one off of the team worst and tied for 938/975 league wide, plays on a line where the other 2 players are + players and on a team that is even overall. 

 

I know that +/- isn't a great stat for overall player judgement but he was sent down because aside from recovering from injury, he needed to work on the defensive side of his game and 2 years later he still hasn't figured that part of the game out.

He's also being outperformed by a 23yr old and (3) 21 yr olds.  Unfortunately for Baer, no other team wanted him either.

Sooooo you would rather play Roussel who can not score to save his life and is completely irresponsible on the discipline front

 

makes perfect sense 

 

by the way, have you checked Roussel’s plus/minus?
