Conor Clifton is incredibly fun to watch at this level.
good lord, is that kid injury prone or what at the AHL level? Every time I check in, seems he`s out again, what happened this time?
Well he’s coming back from an “upper body” injury which was a concussion so hopefully not that
some good news except for JFK
Blidh is an electric factory, wish he would’ve gotten a look at the 4th line at some point. Can’t do it now though
Players like Blidh are why you don't need to go out and sign a guy like Nordstrom day 1 of free agency.
If you're gonna say that you have to include Wagner who has been an excellent find at 2x min salary
still have no idea how nordstrom got a 2 year deal for a million bucks a year, coming off a stellar 2 goal season.
he's a nice depth guy, but as you said, dime a dozen.
blidh would be a nice 4th line guy. am sure he'll catch on somewhere else soon, just like cave.
You know you can quote me, right? I wanted Wagner in the offseason so I didn't mind them getting him on the first day, and while he's a 4th liner himself, he's a step above Nordstrom. Wagner is a guy I can see going on Day 1 to a team who targets what he brings; physicality. Nordstrom doesn't bring anything.
Vaakanainen was much better yesterday aside from an awful turnover in the first.
Gemel Smith's skating is great. Guy has an engine. I think his board play at this level is pretty good, I don't know if it translates at the big time. He has good chemistry with Stempniak.
Providence pretty much dominated this game, the refs allowed Springfield to hang around with some generous calls that included some pretty awful embellishment. Springfield is loaded with clowns like Farnham, Zolnierczyk and Paul Thompson.
He has future in the speed skating competitions. No need for stick there.
Probably the same guy that signed Black Hole Backes (One even strength pt since Xmas.) to 6 million for 5 years when we needed a vet deeman.
I would like to see Blidh get a shot next year on the 4th. Sure would take the heat off Marshy, give the other teams someone else to hate on.
Yes Blidh might catch on somewhere and he is exactly like Cave, hard working, zero offence, aka Nordstrom. Except neither Cave nor Blidh bring the defensive responsibility Nordstrom does, not close that is the reason they went with Nordy. Next year Blidh may well make the Bs, at Nordstrom’s salary he is easily moved or sent to the AHL without a cap penalty. They also could move Blidh at the draft or this summer. When discussing those three players the only separation is experience, and Nordstrom comes out ahead.
Nordstrom hasn't been the same player since returning from injury. Really liked his game prior to that, seemed like a good bargain.
kid can`t stay healthy, too bad
Trading an extra forward for a defenseman
edit: too slow
Forgot that there is an actual trade deadline in the AHL
I liked Fyten and hopefully this is just a depth move and not Lauzon being done for the year
Blidh might have more offensive upside than Nordstrom. He has a decent shot. That said, I don't expect Cassidy to play him over Nordstrom at this point. I would like to see Blidh on the B's next year, or at least getting a real shot at earning a 3rd/4th line role in place of Nordstrom. Nordy in that situation still might be the better option, but I'd like to see Blidh get another look and opportunity. We know what we have with Nordstrom.
Breen and Cumisky are hurt too. Probably looking for someone slightly better than Messner.
