The limited number from what I recall is only applied after the deadline. 

Either way, those calling for the newbs to get icetime don't understand that it will take an injury for a player to be moved up from the taxisquad at this point.

But I thought Myers sucked? Are you saying he's good? 

They move goal posts for this sort of thing all the time.

Miller - Petey - Boeser
Hoglander - Horvat - Podkolzin
Pearson - Sutter/Graovac - Lind
Motte - Beagle(?)/Highmore - MacEwen
Gadjovich/Bailey/Jasek

Hughes - Hamonic (or upgrade via UFA)

Rathbone - Schmidt

Juolevi - Myers
Edler? Woo?

 

DEMKO!

 

And that's without and trades/UFA additions.

Bring on next season.

Yeah good luck with that lineup and making playoffs. I just dont have high hopes for this team and defense that was worst than last year. Last year we had stecher, Tanev and 2 great goalies. We just keep getting worst on the back end. I hope Benning gets fired so we can have some hope of this team to finally become a contender. I vehementely disagree with bringing back Edler and Sutter. Their time is up, just bring up the kids at this point ready or not.We cant be playing Edler again, we need speed back there and someone that is more reliable. Play Joulevi or Woo, so they can learn the NHL game. No point playing Edler and still missing playoffs with him playing 30 minutes. Its insanity to bring same players back and accept different results especially when Benning the genius let Tanev and Toffoli, key players of our team walk for nothing.

High picks are really helping Buffalo aren't they? 

Would it be great sure. But you can't expect players that want to win, just roll over and die. Yeah they are frustrated, angry, and may even not be happy. Or just plain having

a bad season. 

But they have pride and won't lose on purpose. 

Or as one ex NFL coach says: "You play to win the game."

 

Lots of examples of teams other than Buffalo that have tanked and are now reaping the results. Everyone drools over Colorados roster, how do you think they got where they are?

 

Fans being okay with this are exactly the reason why ownership never commits to a full rebuild.
 

No one is saying they have to try and lose all they have to do is play rookies high minutes and it will take care of itself. It’s literally what every other non playoff team is doing but no apparently we have too much pride...

what results are Buffalo reaping? Reinhart and Eichel both want out...

 

Colorado rebuild has been rebuilding for nearly a decade with ups and downs. Including some calling for Sakic’s head.

Never said Myers was bad.
 

Play Chatfield in his minutes and we lose though.

Seems like Highmore deserves a bit longer of a look and besides Green had already said he wants to play both Gadjovich and Lockwood just isn't allowed until Sunday after Utica finishes their season. So quit your doom and gloom whining already

 

I put next to no stock in a couple of goals when Highmore did literally nothing offensively with that top 6 spot when the games actually mattered. He has had a long look in the top 6 already. 

 

Getting Gadjovich, Lockwood, and Lind in to see what they can do means next to nothing if they are on the 4th line with Boyd and Vesey. The better play is to give them some top 6 minutes with good players and see what they can do. Evaluate for next year.

 

If the decision that Highmore is top 6 material is already made then this team is not going far next year. Good bottom 6 guy, doesnt do enough offensively consistently enough to be a lock for a top 6 role.

 

Pearson-Horvat-Highmore is a 3rd line in the NHL on a good team, not a 2nd line. And those two wingers are a waste of Bo's prime years if he is expected to be centering a shutdown line.

At least you are a good sport about it. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to play Silovs just to get him a game 

Yeah, but he'd probably get a shutout because he wants to prove himself. :lol:

No Demko and this team is getting cooked. Another 40 SOG night for him. That needs to stop next szn.

“Other than Buffalo”

 

Are you just reading what you want to read?

 

So because Buffalo sucks let’s just ignore every other top team right now that has tanked? Gotcha.

Well, I guess we need to lose 3 in a row now, great. :picard: Put Vesey in net!  

 

Moving from draft spot 4 to 9 is not going to help. And with Seattle expansion pick, that means 5 to10. Add in 2 lottery bumps and it's 7 to 12. We are definitely picking 12. It's the Canuck way to lose the worst way possible.

We can’t get Gadjovich Lockwood and Lind in until the conclusion of the AHL season. 
 

Covid decimated our call up options.
