    That’s fair. Just wanted to add a couple points as the overwhelming belief is that the ECHL is bad for development despite the trend of more and more goaltenders getting their start in that league.

    Our ECHL affiliate is poisonous. Wouldn’t want to send any of our prospects to Brampton after that report from The Athletic.

    The whole organization is poisonous to young players from top to bottom.

    Do we still own his rights or was he a UFA?

    Pokka's contract is up and he is a RFA.

    Thanks!

    As an RFA do we retain his rights if he comes back to N.A.?

    Sens would need to make him a qualifying offer

    honestly what the **** was the point of that trade... dido was playing well and we shipped him off.... i mean i thought maybe dorion or the scouts saw something in pokka and thought maybe he was an under the radar pickup but i guess not?

    Edit i will put this in the trade thread too

    There are a couple justifications.

    1) Give Dido a chance at a playoff run and with a team that might give him NHL games. He didn't play for Chicago, sure, but the Sens had already decided to move on from him. May as well give him a shot elsewhere.

    2) It's easier to evaluate a player when he's in your own organization.

    3) It's possible the Sens would have happily brought back Pokka as an AHL DMan but he made the decision to go to the KHL.

    We had to trade dido to keep Boucher from playing him.

    Marathon men: Phantoms win longest AHL game ever
    May 10, 2018

    Ten years after the top affiliates of the Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes made American Hockey League history, they were at it again.

    Alex Krushelnyski scored 6:48 into the fifth overtime period, giving the Lehigh Valley Phantoms a 2-1 win over the Charlotte Checkers in Game 4 of the Atlantic Division Finals.

    The longest game ever played in the 82-year history of the AHL ended at 1:09 a.m. EDT after six hours and six minutes and more than seven periods of hockey.

    The longest game in AHL history is over! Alex Krushelnyski is the hero and the @LVPhantoms get the win! #LVvsCHA pic.twitter.com/enyOOkj9n7

    Alex Lyon stopped 94/95 shots over the course of 7.5 periods.

    Dido is an okay top 6 player in the AHL & is not an NHL player by any stretch of the imagination. IMO he is the kind of vet player that you add to an AHL roster to help the young guys learn the ropes. That was another of many coaching mistakes.

    Not just coaching. Management. I would argue its a more a management/hockey ops mistake than a coaching mistake.

    You don't think GB had anything to do with bringing Dido to Ottawa given that he used to coach both him & Hoffman together? IMO it was GB that talked PD into signing Pyatt & bringing both Dido & Dumont to Ottawa.

    Not saying he didn't one is a coach the other is a GM. The GM decides who is signed and where they play. At least that's his job.

    Pretty sure Dorion said that when it came to depth players he thought that was more of a coaching decision and was letting Boucher decide that, but that's probably not gonna be the case next season.

    I don't think he said that he let Boucher decide but that he took his input regarding the player he would like. He tried to pleased him a little to much. He said it was his mistake.

    Still a Manager's decsision and responsibility to decide how much control of his, that he will relinquish

    I can not guess what streams through Dorion's mind but it sure looks like that.

    It'd be super nice to be able to give our own prospects experience in the AHL playoffs. Randy Lee still has a job though, right?
