    No, I don't agree. Erne is the future and Cally is on his way out (we hope). Not because he doesn't give 100%, he always does, but we have a cap crunch coming and we have to get him off the books. And want to keep giving Erne the reps.

    If Erne is the future then we are headed for the draft lottery

    We had to score 5 goals regularly to win games when Vasy went down so I'm pretty sure the goals for average is quite a bit higher with Dom in net.

    I feel like sitting Cally and naming him the 13th forward did him some good. Looked better tonight trying to make the most of this game. Todd Richards talked a little bit about competition earlier this week and it looks like it payed off.

    My educated guess is 4.3 with Domingue Dynasty and 3.7 with Vassy.

    Yeah Erne has been pretty disappointing, bring up Conacher.

    You are not the only one. I think Cally has been pretty good when healthy.

    Nah man. I've been lead to believe there's no available upgrades on Erne for the bottom 6 because he's so elite.

    Y'all must be mistaken.

    I didn't say he was the whole future. And even if it just as a chip in a future trade, the more NHL experience he has, the better. Certainly not hurting us having him here at $800K.

    The question wasn't about Erne relative to anyone other than Callahan. I say Erne at $800K is more valuable than Cally at $5.7M if we can get rid of him at the TD. The crunch is coming and Pointer has to get paid.

    Solid confidence-boosting win. Congrats to Domingue. As for Cally, we're using him the way we should be using him. He's still solid when he's rested, he just doesn't have the legs anymore to be in the lineup every night. I also think Erne and Joseph play better when they're getting the odd night off. And Kuch is back, right on cue. The minute you start to think about worrying about him he reminds you that you don't have to. Good game overall.

    Also, I get the contract stuff, but based on the way he's been playing, I think moving Miller before the offseason would be a huge mistake. I get that we probably can't keep him long term, but I don't like the thought of going into the playoffs without him. He's been a beast lately.

    I don't know if he is better, the same or worse in terms of play on the ice, the difference isn't that great however you view it, but in terms of relative value, it is not even close.

    For the love of hockey, could they pleeeeease keep Hedman and Strålman as a pair? The two of them were pure magic together tonight! Just like the good ol' days of 2014-15 and 2015-16. :heart:

    Hedman-Strålman - 25 minutes
    McDonagh-Cernak - 25 minutes
    Coburn-Sergachev-Girardi (with Sergy always playing & the others rotating) - 10 minutes

    Simple. :sarcasm:

    Yeah, i've always liked Miller even when he was on the Rangers. He is a solid player.
