Oh wait your aren't serious are you?

He will be the #7 though unfortunatly. I would love to have Postma play #6 with Stuart and bump Oduya to &, but I do not see at this point TNSE paying Jones over a million to play AHL. When it matters, yes I think/hope they will make sacrifices like this, but right now with the team we have now there is no point.

Let's face it, with Postma/Kulda/Oduya/Festerling all around I still have NO IDEA why that useless plug Jones was signed, but he is and he will in Winnipeg. I cringe every time I think of that, and will every time he steps on the ice, but those are the facts.

One thing I gotta say people, IT WAS ONE PRESEASON GAME. I know we are so excited about the new team, but you don't go making big grand assumptions about players based on one game. This goes for Postma, Scheifele, Antropov and everybody. That being said I have been pimping both Kulda(who has arguably at least as impressive in his own way as Postma) and Postma all summer as I think from what I've seen that they will both be very quality players. I'd love to see...
Enstrom - Byfuglien
Hainsey - Bogosian
Stuart/Kulda - Postma
Stuart/Kulda
But going with two rookies on the same pairing is asking for trouble, but down the road I for sure see a Kulda-Postma pairing as a solid 2nd pairing.
