    Brossoit is a UFA and very well may not be back.

    Didn't realize he fell into the Group VI UFA category. That could definitely clear things up, although I don't mind the idea of bringing him back to help out in Bakersfield and as an emergency option. The d core is going to be really young so having a solid established AHL goalie will help mask some of the mistakes that will happen as they learn the pro game.

    Let him go imo. He just doesn't have what it takes to be and NHL goalie.

    You just never know with goalies but the smart money is that he won't end up much at the NHL level.

    That's true, but his lack of progression in fixing the holes in his game is enough for me to give up on him. The fact that he's 25 now just further adds to that. I'd much rather give other young guys a chance at the AHL level rather than keeping him around and wasting games on him.

    Stand outs from last night (stats wise, I wasn't able to watch)

    Vessel with another goal, 2 points all together
    Benson with an assist
    Bear with 2 points
    Marody with 1 assist

    Next year's team is going to be a lot more interesting to follow.

    Dallas Eakins and the Gulls complete their collapse and miss the playoffs. Last time I checked they were in third.

    4-8-0 in their final twelve games, with an 0-3 record vs the Condors. :razz:

    Vesel is a Center as well. I know who I'd rather have signed. Hopefully they are able to get it done but......

    The one thing Chiarelli gets credit for is that starting next year I think we finally see a farm team where we have several intriguing options for callups. Not AHL journeymen, but legit young prospects with NHL potential in all different kinds of roles!

    It takes 2 to tango and the likely sticking point is the signing bonus and performance bonuses. They should've gotten a good look at him to decide what he's worth to the org at this point.

    Benson, Marody, Bear, Jones, Mantha (I hope :( ) and Yamamoto are all guys that could play prominent roles next season and all were drafted or signed by Chia. Even if you remove Yamamoto because he was a first rounder, that's still not too bad at all. The following season Skinner, Maksimov and Safin will likely be ready to step into prominent roles.

    What is the issue with Mantha?

    edit. Blood clot in eye I see, that is scary.

    Let's just hope we have a coach down there that can actually develop.

    Another guy that IMO could be markedly better with a little better acceleration and speed.

    He really improved once he was finally taken off the fourth line with the likes of Christoffer riding shotgun.

    Is Christoffer’s contract done this year? Doesn’t seem like he adds much value.

    Christoffer, Ellis, Russell, Betker and Platzer are RFAs.

    Brossoit, Simpson, Laleggia, Lowe, Ferlin and Downing are UFAs.

    I'd probably re-sign Ellis and Russell to NHL deals, the rest of the first list get AHL deals.

    Of the 2nd group I could see Lowe returning with the rest possibly all wanting to move on.

    My predictions

    Christoffer- Gone
    Ellis- Gone based on how much usage he got in the last half of the season.
    Russell- Signed
    Betker- Signed
    Platzer- Gone
    Brossoit- Signed
    Simpson- Gone
    Laleggiala- Gone. If it was up to me I would sign him
    Lowe- Signed
    Ferlin- Gone
    Downing- Gone

    I think Ellis stays and Brossoit is gone.

    What happened to Platzer? Seemed like a legit prospect at Penticton tournies. The rest I’m not surprised at... lots of tweenerw that never improved. And the Condors had a putrid offense. Second lowest GF in the league.

    Same thing that happened to Curtis Hamilton, Ryan Martindale, Greg Chase, Marco Roy, Mitch Moroz etc

    The Oilers are masters at picking guys who have pretty good junior careers and the instant they turn pro become immediate busts.
