    Does this mean we're free of Kampfer? Or is it bad news for ADA?

    Definitely ADA sitting. He's had back-to-back rough games (but who hasn't), and we know enough about AV.

    Hopefully Smith, Staal, Holden, McDonagh and Kampfer are all banished from this squad. Bring up all the kids, and trade the rest of the garbage.

    It's most likely because Skjei is banged up. That looked VERY painful last night.

    8 posts in and no one speculating about a trade? What's happened to us?

    Don't be surprised if lines look like this:

    McDonagh-Kampfer
    Holden-Pionk
    Smith-ADA

    If it is Skjei that is hurt/banged up, I fully expect 1st pair Kampfer. It's happened before.

    I am thinking the Rangers are also using this as a good time to take a look at what they have and where Pionk is. I am a little surprised it's not Graves

    Given the state of the current team, I really hope the powers who be do not make any concrete judgements based on his play.

    I will riot if Kampfer is on the first pairing. This defense is bad enough.

    ****, this coach is an absolute troglodyte.

    Graves is a big physical defenseman, you know the smartest guy in hockey abhors those type of players,unless they've caught his fancy somehow.

    Happy to see Pionk, but depressed because I know it means DeAngelo is sitting.

    How about playing both kids and sitting career AHLer Steve Kampfer?

    Time to play the kids. Hopefully management is finally 100% certain the team has no hope and hopefully AV is onboard with it and is not just gonna bench him the first mistake he makes.
