    Swayman signed back in March so he will be coming over. Now it will be between him and Keyser to see who gets the backup role in Providence and who gets the starter role in Atlanta.

    Will Providence be back in action this year? Has anything been confirmed?

    I don't think I've ever once seen anyone posit Vladar as the goalie of the future. Hopeful he could be a serviceable NHL backup, maybe, but never more than that.

    I think it's still to early to put a cap on what he'll end up being, prior to his long dominate stretch he was consistently inconsistent, he was a raw but enormous,core strength looked to be an issue, played to deep in his net but at the same time did enough to keep me and others interested, he has the potential to be in the same conversation as Igor Shesterkin,high praise I know.
    My one concern ,does Vladar have the stamina to play 50 games as "the guy" while maintaining his prior high level performance
    We'll see

    It seems to me that somehow the best and worst case scenario is that he plays lights out next year. If he plays well, Seattle might consider taking him in the expansion draft, but if he's worthy of being taken over some of the other options (assuming no trade), then you'd hate to lose him with Rask getting older.

    Will the bruins extend a qualifying offer? When does that need to happen? Deadline?

    No secrete I liked Cehlarik however his lack of speed and will to win puck battles didn't sit well with Cassidy. Tremendous vision and passing ability. Really too bad. I had high hopes for the kid.

    Shame he never quite got going, felt like the talent was (is) there but only showed in spurts.

    At least I may get to see him live (if restrictions are lifted at some point over the next two years) since Leksand’s my local team.

    Maybe he goes to Europe and it really clicks there and he works on his speed which is a huge reason he's not successful at the NHL level. He's too slow. Then you have a potential in-house depth option if you convince him to return. Or you trade his rights for a conditional pick.

    Either way, good luck to him.

    Wouldn't it be a good idea to see how he performs in actual NHL game before forming an opinion?

    Well said.

    He's had good AHL season. Change of scenery - reasonable next step.

    Good for him. I thought he would have (should have) done this last year.

    No fans at the Dunk, I'm sure.

    Anyone looking at the AHL contracts? Are players and vets signing or are they all trying to go to Europe or what. Will they league be watered down significantly? I doubt they play anytime before FEB at the earliest but who knows.

    I doubt it. AHL is gate driven league, if they cannot get fans to go I cant see them losing the type of money the league would playing to empty buildings. AHL live is not any type of incentive for the league to start.

    Weeknight games are usually poorly attended anyways , I could see a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday schedule to start,easy to sit 2500 socially distanced fans in an 11,000 seat area

    Only sports playing in December/January would be the NFL playoffs in a bubble.
