Cool... I like this.
Same here... Like the move as well, only 23
Habs fan here. De la Rose is a capable 4th center but lacks offense.
His ceiling could be a Marcus Kruger type.
Our roster is at 23/23 before the claim. There will have to be a subsequent move here
Depth C. Wonder who is on the move
Most likely Ras is being sent back to junior?
I thought he already cleared waivers and was sent down to GR.
Witkowski or Frk waived I would think. Or, does Svechnikov hold a spot, even if he's on Season opening injured reserve? Maybe Hicketts goes down?
Don't we already have enough capable fourth line players with limited offensive upside as is? Meh. Long live the tank.
I think De La Rose fits in well with the 4th line and brings more balance. At 6'3'', 207lbs he'll take Svechnikov's place for the moment.
I like it. Always thought he had potential. Maybe a change of scenery is all he needed. Hopefully this means that Rasmussen is off to Tri-City. I can't say this enough, let him go have fun in junior and win some games, and go play at the juniors instead of being part of this mess.
I don't think you understand. It's to make room so we can move Helm and Abdekader to our top 6.
That's the warm and fuzzy feeling I was looking for.
Probably wishes he would have cleared waivers instead.
Nah man, he gets to join the Swedish mafia!
Didn't he have that "cardiac episode" at the beginning of the month? Is he ok to play?
More like the Swedish mummies.
Just read he has heart problems he will fit right in with this group.
To me it's interesting that this comes up a day after we learn that Svechnikov is going to miss most of the season.
-Are they adding C depth to the NHL roster because they want to send Ehn down to GR?
-Are they done with the AA at C experiment and want another guy that can fill in at the bottom 6?
They called him back up like a day later. He's still "clear" and can go back down for another couple of weeks or so. I think his waiving and demotion had more to do with the team trying to finagle as much relief as possible from LTIR and SOIR, and there wasn't any risk since Witkowski would likely never get claimed.
The options are basically:
Witkowski - down to GR since he cleared waivers
Rasmussen - back to junior
Ehn - down to GR
I don't it would impact any Dmen since demoting a Dman to make room would give them 15 healthy forwards on the NHL roster.
I think it depends on what they plan on doing with JDLR. If they just want him for pressbox depth, then Witkowski is the logical choice. If they want him to take up a regular spot, then Ehn or Rasmussen moving makes more sense.
It sounds like Daley is ready to return too. Maybe Hicketts and Sulak go to grand rapids?
Lots of options really
Interesting, doesn’t make much sense to me.
I remember watching him at the WJC years ago... I thought he was becoming a star, hopefully a fresh start helps him.
