    If you try to break him and make him a better person then it does. But yeah realistically it doesn't make any sense. He was our 3rd best dman last year so unless MB revamps the whole defense this summer or Mete has an awful camp he should play in the NHL.

    Mete turns 20 next week. He looked fine in the NHL last season while playing in a somewhat protected role.
    Ideally with Joel Bouchard taking over and understanding how important his job is as a talent developer, having Mete playing 25 minutes a night paired with Noah Juulsen is ideal.

    It could if he did not play in the NHL last season. But sending a guy down after keeping him up for a whole season where he was better than some guys you would keep up is the PERFECT way to destroy a kid's confidence.

    No favoritism for vets. Enough is enough. If you're not good enough you're out. If Mete plays better than Schelmko, Benn and Lolzner at the camp no reason to send him down.

    Mete is probably our second fastest skater behind lord Byron but honestly guys, he does not have much when it comes to offence, defensively he is fine but he could really use some AHL time playing in all situations, he was brought here too soon because of our fearless leader gm and his wonderful D core that he assembled last summer.

    Unless Bergevin is able to improve the dcore, I think he'll be in the NHL. He made the team last year out of camp and then was not sent down to junior for the Memorial Cup, because he was needed in Montreal. Perhaps the emergence of Juulsen will change things.

    At least Bergevin will be looking for foot speed this year when tries to improve the dcore, as opposed to last year when he completely ignored it.

    I could see it. I mean, he's atleast better than Zadina and Tkachuk.

    I'd hope so. This would give us a much needed catalyst on defense. He'd feel right at home next to Shea Weber starting next season!

    Mete is good but not as talented. For now, he would bring more on a second pairing.

    I guess it all depends on what we manage to trade for this summer. I for one hope that MB deals paciorety plus for a guy like Noha Hanifin or Faulk. At that point sending Mete in the minors with Juulsen would make sense. Hanifin, Riley, Alzner would be fine on the left side.

    Having Mete and Juulsen to bring the Rocket to the next level is not a bad thing either. I hope they will have the mentality of having a winning culture in the minors.

    Not a bad thing if you are rebuilding. Rushing him should not be an option. Same with Juulsen

    Obviously development is a franchise weakness but one of the few successes, Pacioretty, suggests sending a player down to work on his offense can dramatically improve his impact status to franchise. Mete the ~20pt #4 vs Mete the offensively gifted 40+pt #3/4.

    Pacioretty still played a significant amount of games every seasons. 34 games his first. 52 games his 2nd. 37 game his 3rd (got injured he would have played more). I mean if vets are playing better than Mete yeah send him in the AHL instead of using him on a 3rd pairing. But i still think that sending him down while using plugs like Benn or Schlemko as top 4 would not be good. It's not sending a good message. It's sending the message that vets can **** but kids got to be pristine. Let Reilly, Valiev anf the czechs fight for the top 4 spots at the camp and let the best ones win (unless you can get someone better of course). The last thing i want is to see AHL vet guys in our top 4 it's not sending the right message.

    Opinions can be wrong.

    In my opinion, Drouin was the best player in his draft...see?

    Man the previous years we had a amazing D-core! After trading subban the team went south, and losing Markov as well. We had great runs previous years but after losing them due to trades and Free Agency some players lost confidence in the ice and off the ice, seems like it affected Price.

    After trading Subban, they got 100 points and were in the Playoffs.

    They went south last year when they let Markov and Emelin go, traded Sergachev, Beaulieu, and Pateryn. sign Alzner, got Schlemko, Streit and Jerabek.

    There's probably a better thread to put this in, but can you guys give me some insight into Victor Mete? Specifically what type of player he is and what role he projects as in the long-term. Thanks!
