The first question should be... why?

It's time for some Charlestown Chiefs hockey!


That's about the only rationale I can come up with on this one.

If DP doesn't pick up Ouellet off waivers I will have to say that he has gone off the deep end!!!

Pick ups thus far:

Grant
Gratton
Tarnarsky
Jones


One somewhat skilled guy and """"3"""" Fighters?????????????????????????????????????


Am I wrong or did Detroit even play a tough guy to win the cup this past season???

I guess we are going to beat everyone up so that our 4 skilled forwards can have some room to play???

All I can recall about him is that he is a big hitter. This should add some muscle to the smurf hitters we have making up our bottom lines. That said, I think I would much rather Pihlstrom make the roster for the Preds.

Meh - a 6th round pick is nothing...I really don't see the harm in this, save for it maybe costing Pihlstrom a spot on the roster.

A bolts poster here. I really like Tarnasky and wished we would have kept him, for what you guys are giving up I think your undervauling him. Hes not going to go out there and score thirty goals for you. He is a perfect Gritty guy for you, and wont take stupid pen. Almost all of his goals he got in front of the net, and if someone is dogging a player he is not afraid to drop the gloves for you. He's not another enforcer, and i think with right system this move can look real good.

Wish you the best of luck Nick!

I just think the move shows that Poile/Trotz don't have faith that the Gratton/Grant combo has what it takes to be relied upon for a regular shift with this team.

hope that 6th round pick doesnt end up being another Erat or Hornqvist.

Geez, the bolts were gonna cut Ouellet and now they've put him on waivers, why not go for him instead?!

Are we seriously worried about losing a sixth round pick on the off chance that it could windup being a top player in the future???

Not so much that we are 'worried' about losing a sixth round pick when we have alot of picks, but the fact that it was given up for Tarnasky, considering we already have a glut of forwards on the team and he doesn't appear to be an upgrade over anyone.

Obviously the sixth round pick isn't worth a whole lot, but again, it is just who we are getting in this case.

Not true. He's for sure an upgrade over Grant and Gratton. Maybe Ortmeyer, too.

In what regard? The only reason we have guys like Grant and Gratton is because they are supposed to be fighters. Tarnasky isn't an upgrade over them in that regard.

Ah, what if the two jars you have are a jar of PeterPan and a jar of Skippy?

I know I'd still buy a jar of JIF

Wow, judging by Trotz and Poile's comments in the TN'n today regarding the acquisition, I guess I was wrong twice in the same day...

Ryan apparently left due to personal reasons. At least I was right that he did in fact choose to ask out of his tryout...

Ryan was smart enough to see that there was no room for him here

That's what I said too, but the comments in the paper today make it seem like he will not be immediately trying to catch on with another team, but rather will be heading home to figure out his personal life. Seems like he might have a personal issue looming overhead at home that is distracting him from playing hockey at his full potential.

I was actually impressed with him in camp and thought he would earn a contract out of camp. Again, based on the comments in the paper, it seems that the Predators were thinking along the same lines and are more than willing to welcome him back if he decides to continue his hockey career.
