I hope Peca comes back really believe he could stick around if given the chance.
I think Cirelli getting the call up sealed his fate - which is a shame because I think he's an NHL-quality player.
Wouldn't mind trading him to a team who could use him.
It’s important to remembered that the AHL is a developmental league and to temper expectations of juniors superstars and also to remember that the nhl playoffs is mostly just luck and that crying in the shower is a healing process.
I'm looking towards the draft and can't help but wonder if we aren't gonna nab more Russians. A guy like Alex Khovanov or Kirill Nizhnikov may be of interest to us
lol what a name. What a freaking name! I can't say I had kept up much with the KHL. Can you tell me anything about him
A bit of a late bloomer. Wasn't that thought of prior to the season as he didn't have much of a track record to go on. Had one of the better seasons in the MHL of any draft eligible player, outproduced guys who are top 3 round talents. Really good offensive skill set, skating is ok so needs a little work there and his play without the puck could improve. Decent sized kid as he's 6' or 6'1 depending on the source. Signed for next year so will be staying over for another year, has played just 1 VHL game so not sure what league he plays in. Most likely starts in the MHL with some VHL and KHL sprinkled in, if he keeps his play up from last year he should stick in the KHL by the end of the year. Then you get into issues with him signing there long term and not coming over. As for where he gets drafted it's hard to say, I've seen him go anywhere from the 2nd to 5th. I wouldn't be too upset if we took him in the 2nd but prefer we waited to the 3rd if possible.
Eddie Pasquale re-signed to 1 year, two-way contract: Lightning sign goaltender Eddie Pasquale to one-year contract
10-1-1 with the Crunch last season (1.72 GAA and .938 SV%)
Good 1b to go with Ingram as the 1a. Sucked hard in the playoffs though.
That guy left out Cernak, Spencer, and Sosunov on D. Also they have the AHL vet rule to deal with... can only dress 5 vet skaters.
I think they'd be good to add a couple of veteran AHL defenseman.
Did Cirelli play alot with Stamkos and Kucherov when he came up? I noticed he had a crazy hot start
