Agreed. I would love to see Mueller and Korpikoski score some goals.

I think we can all agree on that.

Lombardi was taking faceoffs last night. If Lombardi is injured I can't wait until he's healthy. He's been our best offensive forward besides Shane Doan this season.

Loving the 4th line....Pyatt is really doing better and both Fiddler & Winnik are towards the top of the score sheet.

I don't get it. Boedker has 1 goal, 3 assists, and just 15 shots in 7 games with SA. He's also a -3, with the team low at -4. Why not call up Porter or even Kolarik?

I'm a huge Boedker fan, but how is he the best choice for a call-up right now?

Maloney saw enough in him to take him in the first round, and then later trade Enver Lisin for him. I think he's at least worth a look. Certainly no sense in waiving him without ever giving him a real chance.
I think people also forget he was brought in to play in the bottom six specifically for his defensive skills and speed. If his offense develops, great. But even if he ends up a solid defender and special team player who chips in only 20 points a season he's well worth it for the offensive chances of opponents he kills.

He was successful in the first few games using his speed to draw penalties, so maybe the idea all along was to send him down to get some offensive confidence and bring him back.

Yup. The Doan/hanzal pair and the "4th" line have been the best in the last few games. Even last night, what little pressure we had was from one of those 2.

The problem is our other two 2nd lines havent been doing anything of late. It's difficult because with so many 2nd/3rd lines, and no real 1st line to count on, there are going to be times when we dont get any production. Last night was so painful because there wasn't even any effort.

Is it possible the team is having flu problems? I know nothing has been reported, but doan had the flu a while ago? Entirely speculative.

How does 1 goal in 7 games give him confidence?

Agreed. Also too our team has been taking too many penaltys (stupid ones too) as of last. Hopefully having Boedker back will have the Yotes on the PP more especially since our PP is better than last season.

Forward Mikkel Boedker was recalled from San Antonio of the AHL. The 19-year-old appeared in five games with the Coyotes and got the call because Scottie Upshall has a lower-body injury and is day to day.
"It's never fun to be sent down, but it was a good opportunity for me to play a lot, and I'm really happy with my play down there," he said.

This would explain the call-up. And Boedker plays LW, not sure what position Porter plays. Also is Porter also playing on a line with Turris?

I'm sure 4 points and significant ice time in 7 games was more beneficial than what he was getting here to start the season. And if his play had not significantly improved we would see Porter or someone else here.

Porter is a center. I believe most nights in SA he centers a line with Tikhonov and Hoggan as his wings.

He's been the second best forward for the Rampage since going down. Only Turris has been better. The whole team is struggling right now so looking at just his stats is a bit misleading. It's hard to play 1 on 3 all the time.

Porter is a Center, so that makes no sense and Kolarik has been awful since the first week of the season. I am a huge Kolarik mark, but he has been invisible for the better part of 3 weeks.

I don't think Kevin Porter has played center for even a single shift in the NHL. He definitely played some center in college and I can easily believe he does in the AHL but a center spot does not have to open for Kevin Porter to get called up.

It doesn't make any sense to have three healthy scratches a game. Guys like Boedker and Porter are probably getting paid at least ten times more in the NHL than they are in the AHL. Neither Korpikoski or Mueller can be sent down without passing through waivers. If waived, both would certainly be claimed.
I thought that if a player is on their ELC and has played less than 180 NHL games they can be sent down without passing through waivers. http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id=8473526 Mueller has 165 NHL games.
Please advise if I understand this incorrectly.

Agreed. I think Porter has played a few shifts at center, but he's mostly played the wing in the NHL. He has plenty of experience on the LW.

Boedker, on the other hand, plays RW (not LW).

A player's listed position has less to do with his being called up than his performance in the A. If Double Nickel's assessment that Boeds has been playing very well in the A is correct, then that explains his call-up. It has nothing to do with the fact that he's a LW (which he's not).
