    I'm not interested in another mismanagement a la Shane Prince. Waive him to bingo if you aren't gonna use him and if you are going to use him give him a proper chance to succeed.

    Look at what Varone did in preseason playing on random lines. Puempel has never come close to that at any point in time. If you need other good players around you to do anything, then you're probably not that good yourself. I think he'll get in some games before he gets waived, but I see zero reason to put him on either of the top two lines. I imagine once we see Lazar recalled in a couple weeks, we'll see Puempel going the other way.

    Look at what Varone did in preseason playing on random lines.  Puempel has never come close to that at any point in time.  If you need other good players around you to do anything, then you're probably not that good yourself.  I think he'll get in some games before he gets waived, but I see zero reason to put him on either of the top two lines.  I imagine once we see Lazar recalled in a couple weeks, we'll see Puempel going the other way.

    I don't buy that. Some players are just much better when paired with better players. They need a good centerman to set them up, they also need to be playing on a line that is going to create chances as opposed to an energy line that is much more defensive.
    I'm not saying puempel is the answer long term but what I'm saying is I don't think he can show us much on a fourth line. He just doesn't create his own offence the way a mark stone can.

    It's more important for the team to succeed than any one player. Young Smitty is the better option to achieve team success.

    To be fair, Puempel was excellent in the 13 games he played in Ottawa down the stretch in 2014/2015. That broken ankle or whatever really derailed what could have been a great start to his NHL career.

    I agree, but for the team to succeed we need three scoring lines. The way they are set up right now, I don't see that happening.
    We may need a dozen games to work in some of these younger players. If we just focus on two lines then we might not win many games anyways and not be any further ahead.

    I know. He did. That's also because he got to play with some decent players half the time.

    Ugh, we're taking a ton of heat on social media for not selling out. I'd personally NEVER go to a Leaf game. Their fans are obnoxious hicks and the prices have all been spiked up.

    Well maybe if they put the prices down.
    I know I would go if I lived in the area. Heck I'd probably get a 20 game package at least.

    I just went on their site to see how much those would set me back and the ticket site is down and not working. Might be a reason why they aren't selling any. Laugh1

    if I was there, I'd be all over the available tickets right now. Wonder if the sens brass is broadcasting it to their public.

    It's gonna look pretty bad on a national broadcast. Usually home openers are a guarantee sellout crowd night for the sens. They clearly f'd up something this time around.

    I think they are aware. My Facebook feed has been plastered by senators announcement regarding the game, tickets and not to miss out on tickets. I smell panic mode in the sales office.

    All the people that drive down from Toronto are probably high on Blue Jays fever. Maybe even some of the local Leafs fans. And the prices are high and the team sucked last year.
