    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.

    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 think you can carry unlimited players after the season ends

    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.

    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.
