This should make things interesting.
Don't think it will make things interesting, but this makes me like Pageau even more!
I think he's the one player that wants to play hard, regardless of where he is. And I think its great. He wants to be the best where he is at, and I think just the struggling team as a whole affected Pageau's play. He had stated in an interview this summer, that even if he was in Bingo, he wants to be the best. And I'm glad he's following through.
Ideally he should be playing up with Greening and Condra.
They didn't play well as a unit to start the season, but no one really did out of the gate.
He will make Conacher obsolete.
9 points in 5 games?
This makes me very happy, love this kid. Hope to see him up soon, I can't even imagine him with a bit more size/development. I see a pretty big upside to his game.
I hope he doesn't have to play with Kassian again when he comes back up.
What's new? Pageau is a beast.
It is tha AHL.
Maybe I'm insane, but they should try him at wing with Spezza.....they have absolutely nothing to lose.
Pageau doesn't fit as a 4C. It makes no sense to keep him up at the NHL level to be a 4C/healthy scratch.
If Spezza/Turris/Smith are the long term top three centers, it would make a lot of sense to move Pageau to winger in the AHL, because aside from injury relief, that's the only place he'll fit on Ottawa without ditching one of those three centers.
And in the AHL he is ruling..if anyone missed Sunday's win over Hershey, you're missing something on how well he reads plays and creating chances..
Pageau - Spezza - Zibby
Switch Michalek and Conacher.
And then replace Conacher with Hoffman.
Pageau, Hoffman and Da Costa seem to be dominating at the AHL level. Stone might join that group if he can stay healthy. There has to be a few players on our NHL roster that aren't as good as these guys. I can think at least of Kassian and Greening to begin with. Too bad we don't have a tough guy to eventually replace Neil as well. Might have to come from outside the org.
Great idea, I'm giddy to see him get called up and do absolutely nothing again.
The interesting draw is the fate of JOB and Petersson out of this, who have practiced but are out of the line-up for whatever reason's..player's are not caving in and playing hard not to lose their spot in the line up..also, bear in mind, a prospect like Matt Puempel is not going to sit for two outsiders..
And that would be different from Conacher how?
Should not have been sent down in the first place. Played on the hardest road trip on the west coast and @ Toronto as a rookie with Kassian as his linemate more often that not. In the meantime Greening is coasting and Kassian is his usual useless self.
Pageau "the diminutive one"
Kidding, sort of.
The team clearly needs energy.
This man is going to make Kassian a 30 goal scorer some day, book it.
Love Pageau...as with a lot of the players he didn't start the season hot, but I bet the next time he gets called up we see a lot more from him.
If Greening can be moved for some defensive help it would be cool to see this line:
Conacher - Pageau - Zibanejad
