    He and Archibald are good competition for Merkley. If the former 1st round pick can't outperform them then he won't make it.

    Busby is interesting. Projected as 2nd round talent before missing essentially all of last season due to injury. I'm intrigued as to what he'll look like now that he's not on the Firebirds. He's a potential diamond in the rough.

    If not for all the injuries I’m sure Merkley would be in the show

    Roadrunners win again 2-1.

    Bunting scores the GWG with 9 seconds left in regulation. Chaput has the other goal and an assist. Merkley with assists on both goals.

    I really like our goalie depth for next season.

    NHL:
    -Raanta
    -Kuemper

    AHL:
    -Hill
    -Madsen

    ECHL:
    -Kalgren

    Junior:
    -Prosvetov
    -Tendeck

    Europe:
    -Langhamer

    Released:
    -Pickard
    -Miska (I assume Madsen has stolen his job)


    Hopefully we actually use our ECHL team for a change. It's a **** league but it's great for depth goalies.

    This would also be another good year to pass on drafting a goalie.

    Hoefenmayer shouldn't be far behind.

    There are enough later-round possibilities for goalies that I wouldn't mind getting one or two prospects into the system. But then again, there are also going to be more than a few undrafted or college goalie prospects out there that we can supplement without a pick if necessary. We're so bereft in the cupboard for forward prospects that I could see us drafting them nearly exclusively this year.

    Didn't realize Miska had been let go. Was wondering about him since Hill's been taking all the starts lately.

    He hasn't been let go, but he's RFA after this season. The assumption is that we resign Adin Hill, let Pickard walk, and move Madsen to the AHL and put Kallgren in the ECHL, which - unless we decide to roll with two goalies at Norfolk - leaves Miska the odd man out.

    Yeah. Miska just hasn't progressed and we don't really have room to carry him any longer.

    Would like to see Hill play 50 games next year. Then we'll have a decision to make in the 2020 offseason.

    Especially if we sign Prosvetov - which I think is coming sooner rather than later, given the way he's been playing.

    Prosvetov is 20. I don’t believe he is eligible for Junior next year.

    Every 10-15 years, we get a Russian goalie. It's coming.

    He would be eligible to play as an overager but its rare that goalies and/or imports are used in one of those slots. Rare but not unprecedented.

    I really, really liked Aliu as a prospect. Size, mean, skill. Never put it together. Like Ramzi Abid.


    Why do they have him listed as a D?

    Great game from Merkley. Too bad he couldn't score in the SO. Hill and Bunting looked good too. Still waiting to see about tickets for tonight. Might get first row next to the Roadrunners bench from an STH. If not will pick up another seat.
