I wouldn't try Poehling at C to start.
Danault, Suzuki, Kk, Evans @ C.
they don't get NHL salary on the taxi squad. The taxi squad is just the AHL but on a vacation of sorts.
With Armia not being injured, it wasn’t meant to be. Hopefully it helps Poehling recognize how close he is, and keeps him hungry to keep dominating the AHL.
He’s going to be a big part of this franchise going forward.
Ok. I guess that makes sense since there are waivers to get out there from the bigs.
We can hope.....I really like this guy and his game...he seems to have gotten bigger and faster.
I don't know about bigger but faster yes. He has been flying out there all year.
Poehling will play in the playoffs
He better! lol
There's no shortage of competition for the 4th line LW and 4C spots: Drouin, poehling, Evan's, Lehkonen, Staal, Byron, Frolik
Toffoli Suzuki Armia
Tatar Danault Gallagher
Caufield KK Anderson
Poehling Evan's Perry
Barring injuries, it is highly unlikely.
With a fully healthy lineup, the habs would already have 3 of these players healthy scratched: Staal, Evans, Caufield, Lehkonen, Byron
False. Poehling and Frolik have the same status. Both of them, plus Caufield, Evans, Ouellet, Belzile, Lindgren and anyone in Laval can only play as emergency callups until the end of the regular season.
Maybe not for this season, but I really hope that Poehling becomes better than all these guys minus Caufield lol, and sooner rather than later.
(at today's talent level, obviously not hoping he becomes better than peak Staal)
I personally do hope he becomes better than peak Staal
Lmao, not happening.
I think you can carry unlimited players after the season ends
Yeah thats a tall order. Staal was dominant during his prime
Hopefully he will be. Let's see what he does next year. He is playing very well, but it's a weird year. Lavals competition has been horrible. I'm anxious to see how they do against better competition. Just look at the Habs against Vancouver and then against everyone else.
It depends. If Danault resigns next summer, I wouldn't surprised if they use Poehling as trade bait to get a missing asset.
Like getting a new GM?? lol
Hope they keep him............thinking he is going to be a good one! Kudos to Joel Bouchard.
Only question is if they shift him to wing. I don’t see them going with Suzuki/KK/Poehling/Evans down the middle. You need some type of veteran.
Putting him on the wing makes alot of sense, and then have him ready for C if there was injuries.
This kid could take Byron's place, Leks place, Staal's place....but more than likely we don't see him until next October.
They need a star down the middle. I just don't see Suzuki or KK being that elite guy. Good, yes. Elite? The jury is still out. Without that star power, it'll be mediocrity forever. Poehling could be good, but was never pegged as a star.
