    It would be hilarious if Nardella takes the spot that is supposed to be for Fehervary/Alexeev next season.

    At this point nobody expects him to be present.

    He’s not getting ahead of Fever. But could push AA for call up next year if he continues to progress. But my money is still on AA. Gotta assume Gudas is gone next year. Think we would resign Dillon?

    Thus far I don't like Dillon. Like at all. Don't know what people has been marvelling about when it comes to him but he looks like slightly upgraded Mike Weber.

    He brings a physical presence. No offense for sure. Doesn’t seem to have found his game in the Caps system as of yet. Definitely not a first pair guy.

    He's another guy who doesn't shoot the puck. The only D they have that can and often does shoot the puck is Carlson. Orlov doesn't do that enough. Jensen, Siege and Dillon just don't have the ability. Kempny is struggling overall. They need more shooters from the back end. If not that then at least the guy who can support the offense on a consistent basis. That's why the Nardella option is looking tempting right now.

    I think the other side of this is really just maximizing tactical awareness before striking, hah.

    He’s skating so I’d expect him to be in the lineup sooner rather than later

    St. Louis agrees to an agreement with Springfield's AHL franchise. Rumblings that Charlotte and Carolina are going to be splitting up and Florida going with Charlotte's AHL team. Leaves the Chicago Wolves to Carolina

    maybe not...seems like they could sign him to a cheap deal....unless of course they’re done with him or he wants a fresh start...

    That probably wasn't necessary.

    Just kind of fed up with LuJo. I guess I'm more frustrated by the lack of info when it comes down to his injuries more so than the injuries themselves.

    When players are gone for like 5 months with an undisclosed injury and no time table a few times within the span of a few years, you start to wonder.

    I mean if it’s cheap, you only bail on him if you’ve lost faith in him organizationally. Dude is still only 22....23 in November. I’d sign him to a 2 year deal on the cheap and hope he gets on track.

    That would depend entirely how he does for the last few weeks of the season, if he is even out there. I'm not sure you shake things just for his sake during the actual AHL playoffs with the D corps set and playing together effectively for a full season.

    I think the analysis goes way beyond the rest of this season. Can he recover? Do they believe in him? Does he have the work ethic to overcome injuries and be a guy who can make the NHL at maybe 24? These are things only the people who work with him every day can come close to knowing. I think if they let him go, it speaks to those questions.

    LuJo is not waivers-exempt next season. Either he’s starting out the year as a #7, traded, or going on waivers. That’s if they qualify him this summer.

    Help me understand what happens to the players here, the draft picks that belong to the NHL club. Do they move over to the new AHL team? I wasn't paying much attention during the years when the Caps left Hershey for Portland then came back. Seems like a lot of turmoil.

    Any players that have an NHL contract would move from San Antonio to Springfield next season.

    Not sure what happens if San Antonio has any AHL contract players with term left since San Antonio's franchise was purchased by Vegas. I'd assume they could either be released from the contract or they head to the new affiliate in Henderson, NV

    True... he is not. Neither is Connor Hobbs, Colby Williams, Lewington, Gershich, and probably others. Sprong is already on a one-way contract. They will get cut in camp and nobody will pick them up. Once in Hershey, they will be locked up. he is worth still having if for nothing but depth in Hershey and the possibility that he develops for a trade or callup. Need the bodies and he is at least known.

    LuJo and Kessy both practicing in regular jerseys. Kessy had that horrible head injury from his fight a few weeks back. Glad to see him back as well.

    Hobbs and Williams will not be back in the organization. I can see Lewington coming back if he doesn’t get an opportunity somewhere else (Europe or NHL/AHL guaranteed money).

    Gersich is a wild card. He’s probably back on a one year deal but I wouldn’t be shocked if they move on just because of the amount of prospects that need playing time in Hershey

    So potentially a big overhaul in Hershey next year....

    Gersich (other than Lujo) most disappointing to me so far. Thought we had a player...

    Yeah, not sure who is more disappointing between Gersich and Barber. Both guys seemed like diamonds in the rough that we stole in later rounds.

    Just goes to show how hard it is to project talent at the highest level. Most of these draft picks are essentially lottery tickets with little chance of turning into anything.
