Too bad neither game is on tv, but that is normal.

As it is, I think there is only one televised pre-season game, and that's against the Nuck in Calgary (split squad).

Some are guys they've signed to AHL deals and some are invites. Guy to fill out the roster as well guys they may have their eyes on for AHL deal or future deals as well.

 

Certainly a by product of the fact they havn't drafted much the last 3 drafts but also really impacted by the fact NCAA players and European guys don't come to these things. That's 5 of their last 10 picks.

It would be nice to give some undrafted guys an invite to main camp, but only to see if it's worthwhile investing a contract in them.

Younger guys would need to be really impressive to get a NHL deal.

Older guys could start with an AHL deal and see what happens.

Drafting can be hit or miss, and sometimes you need to throw a few more darts.

Assuming a slide, it only burns a contract spot until the CHL season starts.

And the cost of a signing bonus.

 

Now that I got that out of the way, no more Grossmanns littering the ice.

Make smart choices for PTO's and cut the player numbers down sooner than later.

AHL guys do not need to stick around if there is no chance of taking a NHL spot.

Keep the one guy you think would be 1st callup if he doesn;t make the main squad.

For D and F.

 

Don;t waste time with Pelltier this year; no need to play him 9 games.

Give him enough to work on for next camp.

So, in a game like this, do you think McDavid would ever play?  And, what are the rules regarding his ability to defect over the the Flames camp and claim refugee status?

I kind of question the motivation. They still had slow starts. Instead of bringing the game to other teams, they kind of play a feel out 10 minutes or get their legs going. For me, I wanna see them make teams chase them. It is good to be resilient for comebacks but not good to rely on them.

well after much thought and pontification(nice word huh?).. I have come to the conclusion that the entire reason for our slow starts is the pathetic performance of our national anthem singer.. Bring back Susan Smith.. Pump It Up!!!!!!!!!!!!

Canyon is running for politics, so he may be done anyway.

 

As for slow starts, I wonder what the impact is to an athelete is for playing at sea level (most of the East and parts of the Pacific division) versus playing at 3500 feet.

We tend to have the ability to outlast teams over 60, but need the goalie to DO HIS JOB in the first period.

Looking at Rittich's starts, he was consistent enough to let the team bring it home.

He rarely put us in such a hole we had to play with desperation.

 

Hope that continues and we aren't looking at goals scored on the first shot.

DSP... nice!

 

Rieder, no thanks.

 

Rinaldo, was great 5 years ago.  Not anymore.  Too washed up and a targeted player.  Too dirty (although we need that) but his time is over.

 

Grenier... never heard of him.  Former 3rd rounder of the Canucks and 6'-5" 225 lbs. RHS RW.

I could see any of DSP, Rieder and Rinaldo getting a contract at the end of camp.

 

DSP would replace what we lost in Hathaway. Rieder is a speedy player who can kill penalties. Rinaldo is a massive pain in the Hash Rate to play against.
