    If he'll miss months, will the Sharks be dealing for a replacement pmd/ppqb?

    If yes, who might be available?

    He was definitely knocked out. He's going to be out a while with the concussion potentially being a problem. The neck twist may be a concern as well. We'll have to see what they report but man that was a rough ride. Tennyson is going to get some time, that's for sure.

    With the way he played in the pre-season wouldn't be shocked to see them call up Albetshauser.

    I think we're going to get a variety of guys coming up.

    Albetshauser, Acolatse, Tennyson. Maybe Doherty.

    I think Tennyson will be the only one called up to be honest.

    There's no guarantee that Tennyson sees any time.

    It's a pretty good bet.

    This what I think too. The Sharks have seen him play and with Stuart coming back and with Hannan playing well, he will probably have a nice view from the press box.

    Ya, they have 6 healthy d-men that they'll probably use in Dallas, just slot Stuart in with Irwin, and from there it'll depend on what they find out about Boyle and how the 6 D they have play.

    They would only do that if they don't have any options cap-wise. They don't want to only go with the bare minimum on D in case something happens between now and the game in Dallas. They do have options if they so choose but we'll see.

    I'd imagine they'll call someone up, I don't think that someone will be playing in the next couple of games.

    Considering the type of player that Boyle was and what Stuart is, it would be a good idea to put a guy of Tennyson's skills into the game. It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't just due to their perceived value in what Stuart-Hannan did at one point but I don't think it's the best thing for them to do.

    If he uses that suspension in his explanation as something against him, it will get appealed and lowered. And the chirping thing is only going to be substantiated by an official if it were to be utilized for a punishment. They can't go off of what a victimized player's teammate is saying. And that is going to be very difficult.

    I thought this thread wasn't supposed to be about call ups?

    Guesses as to who will be called up on defense? Gotta think Tennyson or Petrecki.

    I think they'll go with the D they have for the next couple of games and if they play well, stick with it so I'm not sure who they'll bring up to sit in the press box. Petrecki is as good a guess as any.

    That said, I'd imagine they'll want to bring up a right side d-man who can move the puck and add some offense so I'm guessing Tennyson, though they weren't exactly happy with his play through camp and pre-season.

    Demers will prove himself as a top-4 defenseman

    Demers-Stuart
    Braun-Vlasic
    Irwin-Hannan

    .....................Stuart is coming back so just in time but it would have been nice to see Hertl on defense, imagine him that much closer to the opposing goalie than when at forward. :laugh:

    I think he might miss more than that.

    Havlat, Torres, now Boyle... If this team can keep winning with those three out long-term than I would be insanely impressed.

    We have 6 healthy "NHL" defensemen on the roster, so I don't imagine a kid will get into a game... I wouldn't be shocked to see Petrecki up to sit as the 7th.

    move Burns back to D
    play Irwin with Hertl & Jumbo
    use more drop passes on zone entries
    stop blocking shots and clear the lane so Niemi can see the puck
    go back to read-and-react diamond PK system
    refuse to call timeouts when our players are gassed and are asking for a timeout before a big power play

    Sit Stuart and play Tennyson. Not joking.

    I doubt that happens, but
    Vlasic-Tennyson
    Irwin-Braun
    Hannan-Demers

    Us greater than

    Vlasic-Braun
    Irwin-Stuart
    Hannan Demers.

    no way, it's nice to have a proven vet on each pairing and it screws up chemistry for 2 pairings that shouldn't be broken up at this point. Irwin-Stuart is the only way to go until proven otherwise.
