    I hope Peca comes back really believe he could stick around if given the chance.

    I think Cirelli getting the call up sealed his fate - which is a shame because I think he's an NHL-quality player.

    Wouldn't mind trading him to a team who could use him.

    It’s important to remembered that the AHL is a developmental league and to temper expectations of juniors superstars and also to remember that the nhl playoffs is mostly just luck and that crying in the shower is a healing process.

    I'm looking towards the draft and can't help but wonder if we aren't gonna nab more Russians. A guy like Alex Khovanov or Kirill Nizhnikov may be of interest to us

    A bit of a late bloomer. Wasn't that thought of prior to the season as he didn't have much of a track record to go on. Had one of the better seasons in the MHL of any draft eligible player, outproduced guys who are top 3 round talents. Really good offensive skill set, skating is ok so needs a little work there and his play without the puck could improve. Decent sized kid as he's 6' or 6'1 depending on the source. Signed for next year so will be staying over for another year, has played just 1 VHL game so not sure what league he plays in. Most likely starts in the MHL with some VHL and KHL sprinkled in, if he keeps his play up from last year he should stick in the KHL by the end of the year. Then you get into issues with him signing there long term and not coming over. As for where he gets drafted it's hard to say, I've seen him go anywhere from the 2nd to 5th. I wouldn't be too upset if we took him in the 2nd but prefer we waited to the 3rd if possible.

    That guy left out Cernak, Spencer, and Sosunov on D. Also they have the AHL vet rule to deal with... can only dress 5 vet skaters.

    I think they'd be good to add a couple of veteran AHL defenseman.

    Did Cirelli play alot with Stamkos and Kucherov when he came up? I noticed he had a crazy hot start

    No. He played 3rd and 4th line pretty much all the time. I think he had some PK shifts with Point.

    We need to stop drafting Russians until we have their Visas figured out. Need to see what this Semykin is all about so I can crap all over him if he's not good enough.

    To be fair we had a very similar reaction to Volkov last year, and so far that kid has been a gem for us.

    Volkov came to development camp, signed his ELC and stayed to play for Syracuse. Semykin isn't making camp and I'm not sure what his status is for rookie camp later in the year. I'm just saying that if these kids are throwing their names in the hat to be drafted they should have all their Visa stuff or whatever they need figured out so they can come over after the draft to meet the organization.

    My man Saku Salminen couldn't wait to come over to development camp every year.

    Ross Colton just signed. Leaving college for the Crunch

    I count 15 forwards headed to the Crunch already, now add Colton. Going to be crowded. Probably Andreoff also.

    Alexander Volkov - Gabriel Dumont - Mathieu Joseph
    Boris Katchouk - Mitchell Stephens - Taylor Raddysh
    Michael Bournival - Alex Barre-Boulet - Carter Verhaeghe
    Dennis Yan - Otto Somppi - Daniel Walcott
    Olivier Archambault - Kevin Lynch - Jonne Tammela

    Foote, Katchouk, Jospeh, Volkov, Stephens, Raddysh, Cernak, Fortier, Ingram, Barre-Boulet. Sleeper to keep an Eye on: Otto Somppi, Could see him become the Next Palat for us..
    Volkov is rather unknown Outside of Tampa too, I guess.
    Masin and Verhaeghe are the next two on my List, are both close to a cup of coffee in the NHL IMO, but plenty of other guys are as well so we“ll see.

    Obviously leaving out Erne, Koekkoek and Cirelli from the List

    That draft didn't do anything for our top 10 as I don't have Fortier cracking it. It really didn't do anything for the top 15 as Fortier is the only one I move into that range at 11. I have to reevaluate the 15-25 kids but I really don't see this draft class even pushing those kids out. This draft is definitely one of those that you need 3-4 years before you can judge it. My top 15 would be.

    1. Foote
    2. Joseph
    3. Katchouk
    4. Stephen's
    5. Raddysh
    6. Volkov
    7. Cernak
    8. Masin
    9. Ingram
    10. Verheaghe
    11. Fortier
    12. Yan
    13. Barre-Boulet
    14. Sommpi
    15. Lipanov
