I know it means someone else doesn't, but I sure think he looks good. I'd find a place for him

He was assigned to Rochester today, so it's not looking good for him to make the opening night roster.

Yeah, he has a lot to work on. He isn't physical enough from what i've read.

 

It's between Derek Grant and Hudson Fasching i think for the extra forward spot.

No; he was cut today.

 

It will be Grant.  He has enough hours in the AHL that they won't worry about ice time for him.

 

Fasching will be in Rochester.

Plus Grant appear to have earned it.

If we got a 13th forward it will be between grant and deslauriers, all the the rest will be send down.

This thread is why you're supposed to look both ways before crossing the street.

He wasn't too happy about the demotion, which is a good sign

Not that it was a major concern with the couple guys involved, but was the initial move just a smokescreen so that guys like Catenacci and Schneider can be cleared through waivers early?

I saw a tweet to the effect that 2 or more of the call-ups have a connection to the area where an upcoming game is being played.

 

But Bailey coming up to fill in for Okposo would make sense. For the preseason, anyway.

how so? (i'm asking - i have no idea how that would work.)

Depth at forward is not our problem it would seem

I don't think so, at least not with respect to Catenacci.  He is so, so fast, but I don't think that he'll ever be an NHL regular.

 

And Schneider needs to grow up.

Once they've cleared, they don't have to clear again until they've played in 10 NHL games.  Like 11 said, it's not very likely with these guys, but who knows.  Maybe you do it early just in case some crazy injury doesn't suddenly make a team consider a claim.

thanks. i would not put it past GM TM for doing it when he did, for those reasons. OTOH, it sounded like a whole bunch of teams did it too.

You mean sending down a handful of guys and then calling them back up?

ah - i'm not sure. shoot. maybe it was just the sending down of players that occurred across the league. i saw a general fanager tweet today about how everyone (~25 players) had cleared waivers. maybe those guys were a different CBA class of player, though.

If I'm doing my math correctly, that day where they sent down Bailey and others was the first one where teams were allowed to place players on waivers.  So that's why you're getting a lot of those moves across the league at the same time.
