    Hammer was a Beast. Superb signing by Gainey. One of the only UFAs who earned their money start to finish.

    Hammer would definitely be a tremendous result for Juulsen

    If we're dropping Hamrlik comparisons I think the Noah Juulsen hype might be getting a tad out of hand... Juulsen has 14 points in 71 professional games. At the same age Hamrlik put up 65 points and was already a veteran in his 4th NHL season.

    Like, I get that the comparison on a superficial level is "ideally a 2nd pair D that can play up a pair if necessary" but Hamrlik was a hell of a player and that is a reaaaaal stretch to even compare the two.

    Hamrlik was a top, top prospect when he came over.

    Juulsen just skates like Hamrlik, somewhat slowly, that's where the comparisons end.

    Agree. Juulsen is nowhere as good offensively as was Hamrlik.

    Juulsen will be more of a 20-25 pts and 20min d-man.

    That would be tremendous. Would make him an easy no.4 and possibly a no.3D.

    Juulsen vs Hamrlik only fits when you look at Hamrlik's career towards the half way point on. Hamrlik's career in his 20's was definitely a much higher ceiling vs Juulsen. Not a knock on Juulsen because Hamrlik was very good in his youth. Then he became a steady reliable guy in the 2nd half of his career.

    I like Juulsen vs Vlasic type comparison more.

    When is Juulsen coming back?

    To be fair, Hamrlik already had that experience because he was a first overall pick on a brand new franchise that didn't have players to replace him with. He didn't necessarily have to earn anything like a regular rookie would.

    yeah people aren't taking into account no.1 pick Hamrlik and the Hamrlik that came to the Habs. Hamrlik was no offensive dynamo with us. I remember when Markov was injured he actually kind of stepped it up a bit in that department. I actually think Juulsen has shown more offense to his game than the Hammer who played with the Habs. Hammer was absolutely rock solid defensively with us no doubt.

    My guess

    Kulak-Weber
    Schlemko*/Benn-Petry
    Reilly/Benn-Juulsen

    * Hope he's traded soon.

    If Schlemko is traded:

    Kulak-Weber
    Benn-Petry
    Reilly-Juulsen

    I tend to agree. I actually don't mind keeping Schlemko in a depth role. The frustrations with him is due to playing him too much. The minute we play him bottom pairing and he sits games here and there, he starts to look better.

    But yeah, I think your pairings are close to what they will do.

    Hamrlik was also a 1st OA, not exactly a late first rounder. Development isnt linear.

    Horrible.

    Might as well call Mete back up and pair him with Petry instead. Reilly-Juulsen will be an excellent 3rd pairing, IMO.

    Benn needs to sit. can't have both of Benn and Schlemko in the lineup at the same time. Never,

    You know that Benn will play all the games until he's traded at next TD.
