Don't think he has necessarily "earned" the callup but he's worth a look. He was penciled in as a Hurricane at one time.
He can safely come up without going through waivers.
well it just temporary
Enjoy your 3 mins/game Jeremy.
Gillis has not gotten any other Centres so there is no choice. Hopefully Gillis does not keep forgetting we need another higher end centre or this will continue. Although to be fair Gillis has only had two years to fix this .
I think the only reason he was called up was because all the other center options are playing right now for Utica so they can't be called up for tomorrow's game.
Let's see what a guy with a former cap hit of $17,945,000 can do.
You have to give to get. You want a high end center? Someone that can replace Kesler and move him to wing? Ya lets give up Edler+ for it.........not.
exactly. nabbing santorelli and richardson for peanuts has proven more than sufficient, especially since schroeder has proven he's ready to play nhl minutes. you know why kesler is playing with the sedins for the first time in memory? it's not just torts, it's also the only time we've had the centre-depth to even try it.
I hope that once we get to a point where we can squander a few points, torts might be more lenient on handing out minutes to the kids. Absolutely need that depth balance in the playoffs (which we lacked so much in the last 3 years).
Hopefully Schroeder's not out too long. Still, always curious to see what newbies to the team are capable (or not capable) of.
Yeah, I don't knw why he didn't go out to he higher end center tree and pick one off.
Just lazy. Could have trade Booth and 3nd for Seth Jones too, just couldn't be bothered doing the paper work. Lazy....
HAHAHA okay... Where'd you hear that
Looks at time of post and really hopes that alcohol was involved.
yep there needs to be a sarcasm text.
pretty sure hes thinking more about the $8000 per game as opposed to the 3 minutes per game..
More gratuitous criticism of Gillis. Do realize just how MUCH paperwork that trade would take?
I've always thought italics would serve well as the internet's sarcasm font.
If I was GM I would have butted into line at the draft and picked 1st.
He was getting that in Utica too, no?
lol wut, I'm too lazy to look, what was his cap hit for real?
Actually I think he makes more money in Utica, technically.
One google search, first link returned. Just do it next time
