Should probably put this is the Prospects thread
Yes but isn't is about time our youngsters received some help? Not many junior players (and Paul wasn't a super star) can jump in to the AHL and produce right away.
I know he is older but he hasn't had much to work with over the years.
Toronto Marlies vs Belleville Senators
Game #846: Sunday, March 4, 2018
Yardmen Arena - Belleville, ON
@ 3 PM
15 teams in the Eastern Conference
Referee Olivier Gouin (#54)
Referee Beaudry Halkidis (#32)
Linesman Francois Dussureault (#60)
Linesman Brandon Bourgeois (#7)
Marlies have come back to Earth a bit lately...... Goal for them is to finish #1 in the whole league for home ice advantage in the playoffs.....
Sens playoffs were gone long ago now playing for pride and some are playing for contracts next season.... I expect a big turnover in Vets for Belleville next season all of them could be gone..... Those players coming off their ECL becoming RFA I doubt a lot of them will be signed again by the Sens..... New blood next yr in Belleville.....
Lets have a good game today..........
Let's Go Sens........

Belleville outshot 51-16
Chlapik healthy scratch. I was told kleinendorst said he was committing to playing the young guys. Come on down to watch selleck do his thing.
Chlapik played according to the game sheet he had as many shots as Selleck ONE
Chlapik played Colin White didn't play .. any news on that?..

Too many passengers this afternoon for the Sens........
Paul had a very poor game (-2), Blunden lacked energy, and desire, Lajoie had a tough afternoon (-2)...... The list goes on......
Anyone think Randy Lee’s job is in jeopardy?
God I hope so. He’s a Murray hire, hopefully Dorion realizes he’s in way over his head.
Hey Randy if you... gasp ..cough ... if you are out there ... you are fired.
Unfortunately one was extended.. Randy should be shuffled elsewhere.
Melnyk will probably take over the AHL GM job too then.
Fully agreed that he's way over his head but Lee is far from a Murray hire. He was here way before Bryan. He's actually a legendary trainer who gained notoriety in our best years for the bike interviews. Shannahan can tell you all about it.
I'd like Lee to stick around but he can't remain in such a role. Would rather he takes Shawn Donovan's job and replace him with someone else like Lombardi in an assistant/Senior advisor role.
Chlapik was supposed to be a healthy scratch, but something changed (maybe a call from Dorion??). From the lineup sheet, they were supposed to go 11 forwards and 7 D.
The fact that Chlapik was supposed to be a healthy scratch and that Gabriel Gagne is playing on the fourth line just goes to show you that anything and everything Dorion/Melnyk have said is just pure bull. "Renewed focus on drafting and development" lol. A first line of Nick Paul, Moutrey and Sexton doesn't scream development.
Put Randy back in the gym where he belongs, I trust Sean Donovan to do a better job than he does.
Renewed commitment to drafting and development:
"The stubbornness of Kleinendorst is evident on special teams despite the improved results. He continues to ram Blunden, McCormick (when he’s in Belleville), and Reinhart onto the powerplay, while he overplays McCormick, Englund, and Burgdoerfer on the PK. One thing I was critical of in the past that’s improved, however, is the impact of forwards on the point for the PP–it improves when the forward’s partner is not Murray (only 30% of the goals he’s been on the ice for are sharing the point with a forward).
5-on-5 Kleinendorst has put together effective second lines, but continues wonky and bizarre first units (they’ve included Selleck, Blunden, Ciampini, McCormick, Rodewald, and Werek). Why talented players like White, Chlapik, and Sexton aren’t getting those top spots is beyond me. In terms of defensive combinations Kleinendorst refuses to load up his pairings, saddling talented players with those who can’t move the puck effectively.
Looking forward it will be interesting to see who remains (or comes) to Belleville and what sort of impact/usage they’ll get. This should be a time to play prospects a ton, but Kleinendorst can’t get that veteran needle out of his arm."
and obviously randy lee is looking down like "brilliant"
Ottawa Sens may not be doing so great but the farm team is killing it right?
You know everybody loves to harp on coaches and their veterans.
Maybe it's just a thing we should all accept. I am tired of fighting it like it's a thing only our coaches do.
I generally agree with this at the NHL level, all coaches do it.
But at the AHL level I find it questionable. It would be fine if our AHL vets were actually GOOD though.
