Last thread hit its limit, continue here.
Unless Valimaki somehow implodes he is here for the season. Unlike with Chucky, Sam, or Janko there was no we will see from here and make a judgement then. Peters is planning to have Dube and Valimaki in the line-up for the season.
These kids brought it this year (contrary to many peoples opinion around here) 5 NHL coaches on the staff, Conroy and Tre all believe they deserve to be there. They ultimately must believe the kids best opportunity and development interests are in the starting line-up for the Flames not the Heat.
@Lazar Beams I await your new username
I just want to clarify that my post about "real NHL numbers" was made as a joke. I thought it was clearly so but apparently not. 'Nuff said.
I'm surprised they kept Lazar up after his comments.
I suspect that will change sooner rather than later.
His comments were exactly what you want his to say, my god
I think you have 30 days to send him down. I'm curious to know if management is working closely with Lazar to prep him for a sort of mentoring aspect in Stockton. Furthermore, Lazar said he needs to reinvent his game. I wonder if management is working with him to figure out how he should do that in Stockton.
That's the thing though. Preseason vs Regular season are different. Valimaki could potentially "implode" enough that management wants to send him down after the cup of coffee. However, it's possible that the bottom 3 rotating would be Valimaki - Stone - Andersson as well.
We shall see.
That has nothing to do with my point. Lazar wants to play and doesn't want to sit around anymore.
Management will almost certainly oblige him at some point. They're probably just waiting to see if they're any injuries within the next week or two that force him into regular rotation. Otherwise, they'll send him down and call up someone else to be pressbox fodder.
I mean, he really couldn't have been more clear on his wishes:
Flames' Lazar believes stint in AHL ticket to big-league success
That 4th line better contribute this year. Could be the difference between bubble team and actual contender.
I'm also going to predict Neal starts off real slow and they have to move him up to the top line at some point to get him going.
Every player wants to play. If anything they're going to try and move him ala Kulak. Now that he's cleared waivers, he might have some suitors.
That said, I'd like .See him go down and play and gain confidence, he has the right attitude and seems like a genuinely good person. Can't help but root for him
New phone, who dis?
Who would they bring up in his place? Peluso?
Love it DDD
I have a feeling he will bump Frolik and never look back.
Leads me to believe Tre will get Valimaki going strong while building Stone's trade value.
I think he is s much better replacement for Dube if he struggles or they want him to sit and watch a game from the PB than either Hathaway or Pelusoso perhaps they keep him up early until Dube is settled into his role.
Or maybe they just like him better than Peluso and don’t want to risk him not being able to get up here in time if there is an injury.
I wouldn’t mind Buddy Robinson as our 14th forward, I liked how he played and he is already developed to his peak. Get Lazar down on the first line in stockton.
I liked Buddy a lot too, but I think what he brings to the Heat is nearly as important.
Glad to see Brad's comments on Rasmus.
I hope this preseason ends the conversation about the team holding back young guys from getting spots.
This sounds to me like Treliving is working on a deal to open up a RD spot for Andersson. He seems pretty definite about it... more so than if he was just expecting a RD injury situation.
