    So hes basically Dale Purinton. Rather give that defense spot even as a 5th 6th 7th to someone with actually potential and not a goon that has no nhl future. Its not like he is the Colton Orr or Ryan Reaves of the AHL.

    Well, frankly, it won't matter either way if someone plays better than he does. He won't be in the lineup if that's the case. Its an AHL deal so really no harm at all.

    An awful AHL signing is an oxymoron.

    C’mon man!

    It takes all kinds of elements to make a good team and Geertsen is tough. You also need a veteran presence on any AHL team and both he and Loverde will help provide that on the D. Loverde is a steady guy. The AHL is a very tough league and practically every team has a serious goon or two and you can't allow them to intimidate your kids.

    And there’s always room for toughness. I wouldn’t go overboard, like the Islanders have done lately, for example. But were I building a team I’d definitely compose my with a good deal of that element. Not for the fighting, in and of itself. But having tough guys makes the skill guys stand a little taller. And having guys who are skilled *and* tough is the best of both worlds.
    Just for example, I consider Panarin pretty tough btw. Kreider too. Guys that don’t get intimidated.

    Yeah he could come back.

    IDK about how the whole European Assignment Clause thing would factor into his AHL playoff eligibility, and am too lazy to look into it. :laugh:

    This defenseman has just finished a great season of Canadian University Hockey playing at UPEI[PEI] on a very poor club 10-20 record . He scored at a great clip ...13 goals and 19 assists . His goals scored were double that of any defender in the Canadian league for college/University . He has had a camp try out in Boston a couple of years ago ...looks like he got 2 assists in a prospects/rookie game . He might be worth a look by our scouts...could be a late bloomer . 22 years old . Played some US college already . Owen Headrick Hockey Stats and Profile at hockeydb.com

    Possibly. He was on the radar years ago as a late round pick. Played with Taylor Raddysh on the Memorial Cup Otters team. Played well before that in college. I don't know what the knocks on him are but no one has ever been that interested.

    So few USports guys ever make the NHL. Darche and Joel Ward. Probably a few others from the past couple decades. Not many, though. USports is filled with CHL guys who aged out and didn't get a contract to play anywhere, since they can get their tuition covered. So the level of play isn't that great. About a third of the guys in USports aren't even on athletic scholarships at the big programs, and more at the lesser programs.

    I'm never opposed to giving anyone a look, bit for someone like this guy it would be an invite to AHL camp and nothing more.

    Geertsen’s mullet alone earns him an AHL deal, don’t even care if he can skate....

    Yeah I think he is underrated for sure. Come on, he isn’t “that” bad. He is really good in front if his own net and also a good PKer. You need that type. Or “need”, it’s good to have at times at least... ;)

    will Geertsen even get much time at LD next season with Miller and Tarmo joining Rykov and Hajek, maybe Gross too...

    Should have gotten an ECHL contract in my opinion.

    It makes no difference. If he signs and ECHL deal and Hartford decides they want to then they'd sign him anyway.

    And the reality is Geertsen has spent the last three seasons exclusively in the AHL. If Hartford/the Rangers wanted him, it probably required an AHL deal.

    It's a totally inconsequential move.

    He'll probably be the 6/7 D and play "tough" games on the fourth line. If he plays.

    Charlotte ownership has had no further contact with Carolina and has gone media silent over the potential change of affiliation...

    and that is directly from the Checkers organization

    I was being facetious. I’m not very good at emojis.

    Stromwall has turned into a very good player in Europe/the KHL.

    Tolchinsky has been disappointing.
