A little surprised about Semenov, but realistically, he didn’t play better then Gilroy or Sauer or Valentenko at any point, so why keep him around.
Not surprised by MZA or Grachev cuts. Both players showed brief flashes but need more experience. I do forsee both being called up at some point in the year, MZA most likely first. I do wish I could have seen Grachev in HD though, he looked huge in the online streams.
I am really torn between who I want in our last 2 D spots. McDonagh, Valentenko, Gilroy, Sauer and the only ones I want near our roster. I was initially leaning towards McD and V, but Gilroy looked greatly improved. He laid the body a few times, and looked a hell of a lot stronger then last year when a breeze would have knocked him down.
If Roszival has any lingering issues, I wouldn’t hate to see McD, Valentenko, and Gilroy all get some time. I really like Valentenko’s grit and it is nice to have a defenseman who actually likes to shoot, but I do see Gilroy slightly ahead of him.
