  1. Holtz will probably only be here for a few games. I doubt he sticks around long. We have injuries which make it evident for him to be up, but I don't think the plan is to have him here until the end of the year. Management and Ruff were pretty adamant on him developing his game in Utica for different reasons. I don't think a few games here will rush him or be bad for him, quite the contrary.
  2. I'd go 45-55, but yeah, that's the type of guy he is. He's not a gamebreaker, but he's a good 2nd line player/PP guy who can skate well and pass the puck. He,s a good player to have.
  3. I mean, I agree we need more from him, especially in the absence of Jack. But I'm not too worried about him. Encouraging to see Nico and Pav get going, maybe he's next on tuesday!
  4. Bratt has almost 5 times the amount of points Tedenby had in the NHL in less than twice the games. Even if Bratt is a 35-40 point player (which I feel he can surpass even), he's miles ahead of the player Tedenby ever was. I know some are down on Bratt right now after 4 games this season, but Bratt was on pace for a 53 point full season just last year. I'd wait before throwing the towel on him. He can still be a useful player, and he just turned 23.
  5. Btw, Pierre Lebrun said on TSN that talks have started with Hughes and his camp for an extension. So there's some good news amongst all the doom and gloom.
  6. Pretty sure that if he thought it was more serious he would've just said he'd know more tomorrow.
  7. Masisak just reported that Ruff said he doesn't expect him to miss any time. Good news.
  8. Wouldn't be surprised if he does this season tbh, not saying it's a given, but I wouldn't be surprised at all. He just has that scoring factor.
  9. Holtz will succeed if he's put with players that compliment his game. He's got a hell of a shot.
  10. Holtz is having a great game. He's been good all camp imo. He'll play in Utica with a pretty bad lineup though. I'm encouraged by his play. Maybe he starts with Mercer and Foote in the A.
  11. Holtz with 1 goal and 1 assist today and in the last game of the prospects challenge. I think he’ll start in Utica, but his play in camp has been good.
  12. 9 mil AAV for pretty much half a full NHL season. I understand the need to sign him, but must be nice.
  13. I personally think KK could succeed in Carolina. I think MTL wins this situation in the short term, but in the long term I’m not so sure.
  14. Apparently, Jimmy Hayes has passed away. Wow. I'm actually shocked. I know he wasn't with the Devils for that long, but I really liked him as a player and he seemed like a great person. Prayers and thoughts to his family.
  15. That might be the case. Although I wouldn’t be opposed to a 6 year deal (he’d be 34 at the end of it) at 5.5-6 per, tops. 7-8 years I’d be wary of. But as I said, I do trust Fitz, as he seems to spend intelligently and in the right places, and have a plan on who he wants to keep around long term. We’ll see what he has in mind.
  16. I actually think P.K will get 3rd pairing minutes… Hamilton-Graves Smith-Severson Siegs-PK If that’s the case, he might be one of the best 3rd pairing guys in the league. As for Severson’s next contact, I feel it’s real early to discuss it, but I feel that if he signs with us it’ll be for 5-6 AAV. He doesn’t deserve more imo, and I like him. With that being said, I trust Fitz 100%. I like the direction he’s going in and he seems to not wanna spend foolishly.
  17. 50 point guy, top 6 player for us. Just what the doctor ordered imo. Market value, and for 2 years? Sign me up.
  18. Getting a young, elite 1st pairing d-man for market value: ✅
  19. Do you really not like Mercer or was that sarcasm haha?
  20. A 2 yr bridge deal after next season to keep Jack in RFA and see his “true worth” is probably what is gonna happen. After that, if he becomes what we know he can, we’ll pay him big time for 8 yrs. Either that, or he’ll get a 8 year deal right out the gate.

  22. Altering heavily between Clarke and Hughes at the moment. Good thing is we're pretty much guaranteed to get one of those two imo. Should be interesting.
  23. Depending on the return, I'd consider it. First of all for the right side, he can score a lot of points, but also because I think Ristolainen clearly needs a change of scenery and could probably benefit from it. He's been a whipping boy for quite some time now in Buffalo, and at 2 years left at 5.4 mil per, I'd be curious to see what he could do with a fresh start. I also feel like the return wouldn't be huge, since his value has been lowered a lot these last few years. Maybe Buffalo even take Johnsson or Merkley straight up for him? Anyways, I don't think it would be all that bad. Interesting to think about though.
