    Both he and Joki probably are better overall right now. Never thought I'd say that.

    If they keep him down in Rochester beyond this weekend, then I give up. This organization gets what it deserves (no scoring, a lot of losses).

    Jokiharju is, yes. Pilut isn’t in the NHL so assessment-wise, no.

    One a competently managed team, Pilut would be in the top 4

    There you go assuming this team is competently managed.


    Anyway, love the release on this goal:

    Another hot take: I think Dahlin would benefit from a month of playing 28 minutes a game in Rochester, being a top pairing guy.

    Dahlin is not going to Rochester. His play is still better than most top 4 in the NHL.

    may not even be waiver exempt any more

    that is what we should have done to start LAST season. Pilut should have started up here, brought Dahlin up around Christmas

    His numbers make Risto look like an all star. Dahlin is not playing like a top 4 right now

    He's not *currently* fine, but I think most people assume he *will be* fine, eventually.

    that's a little too far in the other direction. he's not that bad.

    Anyway, Pilut is good and this organization is a garbage heap that cannot stop stepping on rakes every time it takes a step.

    100% agree with this. He has lost his confidence and mojo. He needs to go dominate the lower league for awhile and get it back.

    That image is both laugh out loud funny and sadly true at the same time.

    Which part of his statement? That Dahlin is not currently playing like a top 4 D? I think that’s accurate.

    I think a lot of it is a confidence thing. He looked better offensively and with the puck earlier in the year than he has lately. Getting benched every time we protected a lead in the 3rd can’t have helped.

    Imagine demoting a young player every time his numbers slipped? Would be pretty poor judgement.

    Definitely better than McCabe who is our worst LD by a decent margin. Pilut should be called up within the next week if this organization is serious about competing this year.

    Dahlin-Montour
    Pilut-Risto
    Scandella-Joki
    McCabe

    Divide the ES time evenly and depending on performance.

    But I'm assuming this joke of an organization will try to fit Bogosian in somehow because he has anger issues and is a vet.

    Imagine allowing a young player to build confidence and further develop his game by playing as a top pairing defenseman, becoming someone trusted on the penalty kill and playing at the end of tight games. It’s time to get over the idea that it has to be a punishment to spend time in the AHL.

    why it would have been good for Dahlin to spend time in Rochester last year was he has never played as a number 1. He was a second pair D man in the SEL. Let him spend a couple of months as a number 1. The year Myers spent as an 18 year old back in junior as a number 1 allowed him to transition smoothly as a 19 year old. Dahlin could have used that transition to get used to playing #1 minutes with many more games then he played in the SEL

    Pilut's development began at birth when his parents decided to name him Lawrence instead of Larry after his father. There is a lesson here for the Vesey's.
