wait wait wait.... really?

BigG44 03-25-2012 05:06 PM

They obviously aren't confirming he will play yet. Being on the roster does not burn a year.

Modo 03-25-2012 05:06 PM

Is he that much better than Austin, who was optioned straight to the AHL?

Either way, looking forward to his debut! :yo:

BigG44 03-25-2012 05:06 PM

If I were to guess ... they might see how he handles some practice situations ... but they aren't going to get much of that.

Mark said he is going to wear #12 im thinking he is going to play

also why would they bother to have him join the team if he isn't playing rather than go to austin and get heavy duty minutes

MetalGodAOD 03-25-2012 05:08 PM

Please don't burn an ELC year for 7 games..

yeah I wouldn't worry about that.

The guy's got a full season of college hockey under his belt and the Texas Stars are going nowhere fast. I can see why they'd like to have him up with the big team to get accustomed to the guys and the lifestyle. He can learn alot just by going to practice and being around the team.

BigG44 03-25-2012 05:12 PM

Bub Strum just tweeted he could play tomorrow.

Right ... I just don't want to jump to conclusions just yet ... of course that was before Bob Sturm's comment.

I was just saying it's not out of the question, but I agree he's likely head to playing duty in Dallas ... even before Bob Sturm said his piece.

Hull Fan 03-25-2012 05:18 PM

I don't like burning a year for seven games. Perhaps if we knew they'd make the playoffs. Speaking of does he burn a year if he plays in the playoffs but not the regular season?

Regardless I'm happy he's signed.

i don't think sturm know's much more than we do, i think he is just putting 2+2 together

i think hes probably going to play too but it could be that they wanted to give him the added benefit of collecting an nhl check until he joins the AHL.

Ya I agree. By being put on the roster he COULD technically play tomorrow, but I doubt he will. IMO there's very little chance Gulutzan plays a kid with no idea of the system or a practice under his belt that quickly.

Yeah I don't agree with that. He broke the Auld trade.

Regardless of that fact, he has significantly more access to the players and staff than we do. He could definitely just putting two and two together in this case ... but he's way more in the know than anyone on here.

MB94 03-25-2012 05:40 PM

wow, im shocked .... in a good way that is! I'd love to see him play soon with us!

ReverendAlBundy 03-25-2012 05:43 PM

Wooo the future is now, boys!

*cracks open beer*

BigG44 03-25-2012 05:44 PM

In response to someone else on twitter, Mark (ESPN) told a fan he thinks Reilly will play in Dallas, but he's hoping to talk to GMJN to confirm.

I don't know if we can post just random people's tweets so I'll just leave it that. Does it matter if it's a fan or a team official? I know some twitter accounts get blacked out on here.

well stepneski think's he is going to play from this and sturm thinks he is going to be on the benn line so im going to say the chances are very very high he plays

SonicSpeedDash 03-25-2012 05:51 PM

Wow that was fast. Welcome Smith 2 since Smith 1 is with Texas. Should be interesting what kind of game he will have in the NHL.

Brand New Stars 03-25-2012 05:53 PM

I'm excited if he plays with Benn. Benn deserves someone with offensive talent on his wing.

Stars99Lobo37 03-25-2012 05:53 PM

Wows. Didn't expect he would actually play.

Edit: For us. Thought he'd just go down to Austin.
