Didn't we know this like a month ago?
We heard it was probable, but it got done officially today.
Appears to take a penalty at least every other game on top of a game misconduct in the beginning of the last season, can't find the highlights.
Are we looking to bring in a Russian with a later draft pick or as a free agent? I feel like there is something more to this deal, but it could be that he adapts just fine to the N.A. game and has no issues with language barriers.
I’m just dreaming.
Domi insurance. This big guy will be the protector so Domi doesn't have to fight.
Kovalchuk and Svechnikov.
AHL bound? I read somewhere where OEL's brother and someone else are gone.
This is a Schenn replacement.
Hopefully. I guess we will find out soon enough. I don't think that is a given at this point.
We need depth. I love this signing and he Ullstrom signing. We need more of this. Injuries left us devastated last year. Not enough depth. Glad Dauphin is back and that Murphy stepped up. Hope we can keep KConn on a reasonable deal. Archibald is RFA. I’d keep him if he’ll tale a two-way deal. He’d be great in Tucson and is okay here. I assume Ullstrom won’t tolerate demotion for long. Archi might be happy to be so close to the NHL team and enjoy frequent call ups. If we make his AHL salary high enough and his NHL salary low enough, could be a good deal for both sides.
The fact that Lyubushkin can play a physical game on such a large ice surface bodes well. I don’t think Schenn moves well enough to play his game effectively in Russia.
I mean you could have left off the "in Russia" part and it wouldn't be too far off from the truth
Josh Archibald is signed through next season. He is RFA end of the 18-19.
Thanks! How the hell did he end up with a one-way coming off an ELC with so few NHL games played?
Came in here to say this. Plus it's a waivers-exempt two-way contract so that gives us more flexibility if he doesn't stick.
Must be a fairly minor transaction. Still has not appeared on the main board.
It was posted to the catch all signings thread.
I just published an interview with Ilya Lyubushkin:
Have a good read!
