Perfect time for STL to trade him to Columbus.

Seriously, cash in while he's blazing hot. He's certainly nowhere near as good as his stat line (obviously), but he's likely a starter in the NHL - and hot damn does Columbus ever need that. Mind you, playing G behind a sturdy St.Louis D - especially now - and playing G in front of the BJs are two completely different things.

Jason Garrison scored again. He now has 8 goals (leads the NHL for d-men) and is a +7 on the very surprising Panthers. Brian Campbell leads all d-men in points with 19 (he has assisted on all of Garrison's goals).

If you haven't seen his howitzer, YouTube him. The guy can rifle the puck.

Yeah, he's gonna get paid this summer for sure.

Half of his goals were scored on the powerplay. And yup, he's a UFA after this season and is making $675K.

In his last 3 seasons with Floria, he went from playing 1 game, to 39 the next, to 73 last season. His goals went from 0, to 2, to 5. With 8 this season he has more than he has in his past 3 seasons and is on pace for ~28 goals.

Okay, for the first time in a while, I'm dead serious:

Blake Comeau on waivers and we should be on it.

Apparently playing with Campbell is all he needed. I have no idea how his defensive game stacks up (must be decent), but just watch his shot. Amazing.

No Comeau

Why not? 24 goals last year, the kid is 25 years old on one of the worst run franchises in the league and has lost his confidence. A change of scenery wouldn't do him a world of good?

Sure why not. I was just saying No Comeau for entertainment purposes.

Nah, I don't think we should use up a roster spot giving Comeau a shot. I don't think his potential upside is worth it. He has 0 pts in 16 games this year, and he averaged 13 minutes a game. He should've got a point in there somewhere.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if someone claims him. I just don't know where he fits in on our team.

That's the only thing right now, yeah. We have guys who have earned their spots on this team - from Foligno, Greening, Z.Smith, Daugavins, Condra, Winchester, Konopka (kind of). The only spot he could take is Butler's - and I doubt he'd produce on line 4.

I'm not going to say that all of the credit is due to playing with certain teammates, but it happens quite a bit where an average player has a breakout year all of a sudden under the right conditions.

In other words, the team that pays him 4-5 million per year on a 5 year term might be in trouble.

I think the only position the Sens can justly fill is the 2nd line C role. Da Costa can go down to Bingo.

Regin will come back at some point, but given his history, depth at C is necessary.

I see no reason why anyone else in the line-up right now deserves to be demoted. Team is winning, and only really recently developing a team identity.
