Finally, we see the away jerseys in action.
Puck drop is 9pm Winnipeg time? Interesting.
9 pm Winnipeg time? That's weird
That is super late for a local game.
10 bucks say the NHL scheduled it based on the Eastern time zone thinking Winnipeg is 3 hours apart.
Looking forward to seeing that perfection of a jersey in action.
I'll take that bet
Wouldn’t need to do that if they didn’t acquire a bunch of crap from Arizona and Tampa.
Or someone is injured.
Its like having AHL players on the road trip. Rules are the same as they always were to demote a player
They could waive White or Arti onto the taxi squad.
Now why on earth would you want to waive Colin Wh...
Ya, I don't think he is worth $5.15 for the next 4 years. He probably slides through waivers anyway. It also saves EM $6 million in buyout costs, cap space for the next 6 years and $3 million this year. Thats like selling an exta 360 000 Fun Zone tickets by waiving a guy who can’t hold down 4C and let’s Brown/Chappy jump on the roster.
Who's gonna get waived?
I'd like to see Hogberg start here
I think he will - nice that he got a period in last game.
I don't know if they waive anyone. I think its a wait and see... if someone is injured or if Norris or Batherson have an off game.
I think the most redundant part is Anisimov ... if they waive a forward but DJ has been giving him plum deployment so far , and since training camp has been in the guys corner. Paquette has got off to a rough start .. but he does PK and can play a physical defensive role.. better than Anisimov... Galchenyuk can provide an offensive spark more so than Anisimov. Anisimov would clear and is not all that costly sitting in the taxi squad.
Waiving someone like Anisimov also opens the whole taxi squad and AHL prospects including Brown, Brannstrom and Zub to being called up without taking Norris, Batherson or Stutzle out of the lineup
How come weird rules? It's related to the waivers requirements. Just a lack of foresight overall. Too many vets, things like that were among the things that were bugging me before the season started. It's going to be fun when Norris sits to watch Derek Stepan or Artem Anisimov plays in his place. lol
They already waived Balcers and Chlapik in favor of Anisimov and Paquette... Even if Chlapik/Balcers are not world beaters, it still gives you an idea of their vision.
Other team with last change
No more match ups
Could be an ugly 7 games strech
Well definitely no Laine for Winnipeg!
That could be a benefit.
IMO, DJ has over thought matchups way too much. He’s out coached himself.
Roll the lines.
Is Jimmy playing tonight?
Too bad the SENS couldn't/didn't pick him up.....
Nothing good comes out of rolling lines - You can survive if your lines are all better than your opponents.
You never know. Sometimes some teams do better just rolling the lines then over thinking match ups.
Jacques Martin never seemed to worry about match ups. He just made sure every line could hold their own defensively. Obviously a lot easier said than done with a deeper lineup. But that being said, this team is pretty deep. It just doesn't have top end talent.
