    Yeah he's really putting up ridiculous numbers... on the power play. Mediocre 5v5 player like Statspadzza, though.

    The guy said he's competing well 5 on 5 and creating a lot of chances. This prospect appears legit. Maybe even 2 legit 2 quit! MJ

    Keep in mind that the goaltending situation could change considerably given the expansion draft next summer.  Teams will only be able to protect one goalie, and we could very well expose Anderson.  Due to the expansion draft, teams may be looking to deal before they lose someone for nothing (e.g. Bishop from Tampa).  So we could very well end up with a different goalie coming in that we protect in the draft, and end up exposing Anderson and Hammond if neither of them are traded.

    I fully expect goalies to be out there to be had. That's kind of why I think it might be a good time to deal with the issue.

    Remember 4 years ago when we had Lehner, Bishop, and Anderson and goaltending was our strong-suit. Boy did we ever mess that situation up.
    i have to admit with PTFlea, I don't think we'll be sad to have white instead of Lehner. But yes, maybe the right move would have been to move Anderson when his value was at an all time high. We'd be set for years had we relied on bishop and Hammond. But would Hammond have ever emerged?

    Yeah, because Bishop breaks himself once a year - at inopportune times too.

    How 'bout them Sens, eh? Ryan, Karlsson, Brassard, Turris x 2. Take that W and run.

    I predict Matthews is going to get very little breathing room the next couple of games.

    Poor guy.  At least he got to sign that one big contract.
    Nothing there about whether his contract is insured.
    Personally I would worry about my health as the next concussion could make you suffer even more down the road. He's got that guaranteed money which likely means he'll never have to work again if he chooses to do so.
    Now the main worries for the team is whether this will count against our self-imposed budget.

    It sounds like he might be okay in that article. I'll trust they take the necessary precautions, but if he can come back healthy what a boost thar would be to us. if not hopefully he can hang around as kind of an assistant coach, because the players love him apparently

    Yeah I could see him sticking around. Move into the org in some capacity and grow from there.
    But I hope we don't hang too long on that decision as I think Dorion should handle his position if he won't be coming back. We need to fill his spot externally IMO.

    Yeah, but he can wait at this point I guess and see how perron does.

    You really see Perron jumping on this team this year eh?
    I'd imagine he'd take a solid year in the A at least but who knows. He could wind up passing other prospects on the depth chart
