I don’t think it’s fair (or correct) to call Poolman a depth guy. 

Technically a poolman has to be a depth guy otherwise he won't be filling the pool correctly. :ph34r:

If one of Poolman, Hamonic or Schenn can provide stability alongside of Hughes I think it would help a lot. In his first year, Hughes ability to retrieve and move the puck killed opposing teams attack… this last year we didn’t see that so much. Perhaps that’s a partner issue, perhaps that’s teams gunning for him a bit more… probably a bit of both. 
 

that being said… as it stands OEL and Meyers looks like the most probably option and that may not work out so well. 

Schenn worked really well with Hughes. I would at least try that pairing to begin with. Schenn didn't take crap from nobody, and if anyone dared try to rough up Quinn, Petey, or anybody else, he stood up for these guys without hesitation. That's definitely something this team needs more of.

He is older now and Hughes is more experienced.

 

We have a new young, small, offensive D man who could use the same treatment though.  Schenn could be a really good Rathbone partner.

 

That leaves a hole for where Poolman would fit though.  As Hamonic and Myers would be on the other pairings.
 

I kind of wonder whether we will se Juolevi on most nights Ibarra did Rathbone just because of partners available to them.  Myers worked Ok with Juolevi.

Fair enough regarding Schenn being older now. Whether it's Schenn or Poolman, Hughes needs that type of support to be a deterrent.

 

I suppose we'll all see how it plays out soon enough.

I expect Schenn will be the 7th guy. 

 

One or both of Juolevi or Rathbone is likely not playing full time. Just hope whichever one(s) Green wont use is not stuck in the pressbox. No reason to do that now with Abbotsford right there. Let whoever it is play big minutes in Abby.

 

With Green and Baummgartner I would also not be surprised to see the top 6 as:

 

OEL-Myers

Hughes-Hamonic

Schenn-Poolman

 

And both Juolevi and Rathbone in Abbotsford or one of them traded.

I'm pretty sure Juolevi is waiver eligible (and Rathbone not eligible), making the former less likely to be sent down to Abbotsford, unless he really screws the pooch.

I'm okay with that, except Juolevi would have pass waivers.

Would expect him to be traded then. Or that could mean Rathbone is going to Abbotsford right away.

Who knows? Let's wait till training camp and see how it all plays out. Anyone can speculate all they/we want, but the reality is what really happens. We'll all find out soon enough.

OJ won'tpass through waivers and they'll lose him

Ya forgot about waivers.

 

If he is going to be the 7th guy may as well trade him.

My guess is Rathbone goes to Abby to play top pairing mins and OJ is in the last LD spot
