    Unless they bribe Seattle, he's a goner. I'm not opposed to that depending on the draft choice. And the worst part is they trotted sorry ass MacDermid out there game after game and undoubtedly cost the team wins in the standings because of it. Just bungled the situation all together because in the end Clague is still a prime target for Seattle.

    Protect Clague over Walker or trade Walker? You also have Strand that doesn't look out of place...

    We can change them, I had a short lived stint as Brad Doty. I just don't think that one would go over as well :laugh:

    Do you protect 4 dmen? Doughty Roy Strand Clague. Expose or trade Walker? I think Strand and Clague is a good 3rd pair right now and start putting Clague on the power play.

    I would protect Walker before Strand. they are very close in age and Walker is much more proven

    I thought strand was much younger and had more developing to do but in that case you are right.

    It's insane the amount of defensemen that come out of Ontario, can play and play well: Walker, Roy, Bjornfot, Anderson, Clague and Strand (although Toby was a high pick and Anderson
    had 2 NCAA Championships + team USA Cpt)

    BUT, few of the forwards coming out of Ontario can flat out play, like the D ones...why? Only Jad is breaking through. Grundstrom is ok.
    Vilardi and others, only moderate success.

    Maybe they need to have new dev staff for forwards? Who are the forward dev staff? Glen Murray? Craig Johnson? It's just so uncanny the D prospects are actually
    playing great and it's harder to become an NHL defenseman.

    Damn, Clague is for real. He looked fearless and had uber confidence, while activating every time. Oh, but Todd says no such thing as confidence.
    Drew talked about 'players being afraid / worried about being in the lineup' and that's probably true...go out there like Clague and take a job.
    He's out there, not worrying about getting a spot...he wants top pairing. Go for it!!

    Clague looked really really good last night, composed, focused, driven, much much better than his earlier stint.

    Who has been down there longer than a year that isn't breaking through? Essiymont?

    True...but you could say Amadio, Luff and Wagner (he's so fringe and no real NHL skills) did not, so much.

    Dudas - 30 AHL games,
    Rymsha - 31 AHL games,
    Eyssimont - 148 AHL games,

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves here, Eyssimont is the only one who has played any substantial time in the AHL and hasn't broken in.

    100% those players have broken through....

    Amadio - 168 NHL games, don't care how you feel about him, saying that someone who has played 168 NHL games hasn't broken into the NHL is idiotic.
    Luff - 62 NHL games, more of a case, he has broken through but hasn't stuck.
    Wagner - 157 NHL games, see Amadio....

    Shortened seasons because of the pandemic doesn't change that they still age like normal humans

    And? The guy said forwards aren't breaking through like the D have.....and then goes on to discount Amadio, Luff, Wagner, etc.

    They are not.

    Walker, Roy, Anderson, Bjornfot, Clague and Strand could make most of the 30 other NHL teams. That's 6

    Jad is the only forward out of Ontario that could make the other 30 NHL teams.
    This is a problem. Huge. Can you imagine of the Kings even had 3 good forwards
    come out of Ontario? They would be in the playoffs.

    Grundstrom and Moore were groomed mostly by the Leafs system.

    There was a farmer had a dog and BINGO was his name-o

    Are you really sure that you want to use these guys are examples of breaking through?
    2 of the these 3 were waived and unclaimed and the third is a Ginger war criminal who is likely next to be waived

    Most teams develop several NHL forwards and have a bitch of a time developing defensemen....the Kings are the opposite.

    There are teams with #1 D picks, Brannstrom, Zboril, Fabbro, Stanley, Cal Foote, Lilegren...that can't make it and the Kings
    are making their 7th rd (ROY) Free agent College (WALKER) and free agent juniors (Strand) into NHL defensemen.
    It's impressive.
