    Actually, this weekend, it would. I’ll stick with my expanded and abridged attempts to explain my position and defer to the current tone of the thread regarding Antipin and an incoming Antipin Part 2.

    This post led me to discover a thing called a LIKE button. Like a pig to truffles. Don’t worry, I’m the pig in this scenario, and in most of this thread.

    I was wondering if there was ever going to be any headway with those European FA's previously spoken of... I don't think Dahlin hurts finalizing this either.

    Yes, please! I second this notion. Except for Nylander, he looks like a lost cause. I'm souring more and more on him by the game.

    The more I watch the more I like Pilut's game. He's a steady asset to add. Might not be more than a 3-4, but that's the depth that this team needs. Re-sign Nelson and get Antipin back again.

    Dahlin
    Guhle
    Pilut
    Scandella
    Ristolainen
    McCabe
    The decomposing body of Bogosian

    Are all roster players next year. Unless moves are made I can’t imagine Antipin AND Nelson both returning. That’s 9 deep for six spots if both returned. Antipin would not only never get out of the press box but I fear Pilut is with him until Bogo gets hurt. And Nelson too.

    Antipin is as good as gone. If they bring back one of Antipin or Nelson it will be Nelson. Wont be missed with Dahlin on the roster.

    I expect for Bogosian to be bought out. There's always a possibility to sell off McCabe.

    Cheap depth who will now have to fight to get ice time. Not worried about him sticking around.

    I agree, it just depends on what Botterill means by "massive changes". We could see anything from a "main core player" to supplemental. It just depends on those factors. Personally, we should be ready for sweeping changes.

    Yeah there’s no reason to move McCabe at all on the deal he’s on for two more years.

    He finally might get to play with a good pair in a spot he should have been in soon.

    Bogosian on the other hand...

    Very true. I have no idea what Botts will do. Which is simultaneously exciting and scary :laugh:

    So does Dahlin make it more likely or less likely for him to come here?

    Some reports say he’s already signed the contract they just can’t register it until he’s done with the national team. I believe they play/played their last game today.

    Either way I don’t think Dahlin has any effect on it. There’s only a couple D here in good graces with the organization as it is.

    Yeah, the only LHD under contract in the organization who didn't finish the season in Buffalo were Martin and Stephens who both spent the year relatively unimpressively in Cincinnati. They need what he can offer, even if he doesn't start in Buffalo right out of camp.

    Damn I'm really liking Kempe's game, I thought he was one of the only decent players against LVK as well. Seems he has good speed and hands but hes on a huge goalless streak (last scored Feb 7th). Wonder what it would take to pry him away from the Kings.

    Either way great goal by Pilut, really hope he signed here so I don't have to watch Blowyou or McTrash anymore.

    Listening to Baker today it makes me think that Pilut is what they were hoping to get out of Beaulieu.

    Beaulieu is still here too. And since he's a Botts pick up, chances are he stays.

    I do expect them to carry 8 D. They liked calling up extra D even when they had a healthy scratch so that makes things a touch easier.
