    Nice. I was surprised to see him on the wire to be honest.

    Skinner-Eichel-Reinhart
    Sheary-Berglund-Thompson
    Sobotka-Mittelstadt-Okposo
    Girgensons-ERod-Pominville
    x Larsson,Wilson

    Unless we have more waiving to do... I wonder how Elie fits in.

    Even if Larsson and Wilson are out long term, he's a 13th forward at best.

    I don't understand. He's from Canada, not the US or Sweden.

    Is there a glitch in the matrix?

    Is he really an upgrade over Baptiste/Bailey at this point? Don't know much about him.

    You're are asking the wrong questions, is he really an upgrade over Smith, Nylander, Oloffson?

    Believe me, Nylander was the first to come to mind, but I guess I'll just have to let that ship sail for now.

    He's basically a worse Zemgus Girgensons. Or a faster version of Jacob Josefson. An offensive black hole for both teams.

    I wonder how much Wilson's injury played into this if at all.

    He put up the same numbers as Girgs, and Girgs got a good chunk of his points from Eichel.

    He's most likely better.

    I like this. I'm feeling like the upside here is a better version of William Carrier, who was a board darling.

    Won’t Nylander be first up with the inevitable first injury during the first week of the season?

    It will depend on who gets hurt.

    If it's a top 6 or 9 winger, sure.

    Also depends how he plays. If he sulks or plays poorly he won’t get the call.
