I like Palushaj, but it was going a little too fast for him. Head down at times, getting caught. Sort of like the first time Pacioretty played for us.

He has grit, aggressivity, and he tried as hell.

Horrible passing, and weak hockey IQ for now.


Go and improve kid, I'll be happy to see you try again next year! I am sure you're gonna have your plave on this team!!

I loves me some engqvist. Palushaj needs another year in the A, not a bad thing, he's young.

I'm ok with this move as Palushaj hasn't really done anything. But a little surprised he goes before Dawes who has been at least as awful.

I like Engqvist a lot though, so glad to see him getting another shot.

Isn't this the last of the 4 call-ups we're allowed?

White on deadline day.
Dawes, Palushaj.
Now Engqvist.

Though I can't really see us needing anyone else anyway (knock on wood). We should be getting healthier, not needing more players.

Does this mean no forwards will be returning tomorrow? I would guess so.

I agree with you. He has potential, but it just wasn't his time. Really needs to improve his game to be a full time NHLer.

I liked Engqvist when he was up earlier in the season, very good on the PK. Engqvist/Pyatt is going to be a great PK duo.

I think that's a good call. This probably means Halpern or Pleks aren't coming back this week. Enqvist will now centre the 4th line and Pyatt will move to the wing, which is a better place for him to be. Enqvist will also help out on the pk, while Palushaj or Dawes can't do that.

I like Palushaj he showed flashes but he also showed he's not quite there yet. I hope he goes back and works hard. We'll see him again next year.

I liked Engqvist in the short time he had earlier this season - solid shot blocker, but unspectacular elsewhere.

Palushaj is clearly not ready, and with Plekanec and Darche coming back soon, I expect Engqy won't be around long (and Dawes too)

Engqvist is more mature and much bigger which is definitely something we need right now. Can't have Gionta, DD and Dawes on your team and not make up for it elsewhere.

Good move

Palushaj wasnt ready IMO, but due to injuries he got a taste of what it's like wearing the CH.

If anything it should help him down the road even if it was only three games.



as for Engqvist, he did well when called-up, solid defensively as expected, might cut some PK time for guys like DD or Camm - wich could be a good thing as they would have more time 5 on 5 to try creating more offense.

Cool!
His former team got bumped out of the SEL PO last night so I'll take this as a small consolation prize!
Hopefully he has a good stay with the big club!

Kör hårt Ante!!

Palushaj is a better player no doubt. But he is pretty young too. Dawes has played in the NHL before and is older. You won't harm his development now.

Was hoping Dawes would be the one to leave. I like this Engqvist fellow though.

I believe this might mean that both Plek and Halpern could be out longer, which means we need to reinforce the center position.
Palushaj is going to be good imo, but he's not ready, he also got rocked by Stoner yesterday. He had his first tastes, now he needs to go work in the minors.
I have no objection to this.

Good move, Palushaj can be very good someday but he's definitely not ready. I liked Engqvist a lot when he was called up last, I think he has the potential to fight Pyatt and maybe even Halpen for a spot on the first team next year.

Hate reading between the lines, but is calling up a centre and sending down a winger proof that Plekanec's injury might be more serious than we thought? Hope not...

Agree with most of the sentiments here: Engqvist was solid in his first call-up this year, Palushaj definitely needs some more seasoning. Don't have a problem with this, whatever the reason behind it may be.

Could be. At least the team isn't in tough and fighting for a playoff spot so Plekanec doesn't need to rush back and can rest if he needs it.

Good first call up. Good size and shouldn't be a defensive liability.

From what i just saw on sports 30, Plek was flying on the ice today.

My first thought was that this is more about replacing an inadequate and often manhandled Pyatt as the 4th line C, since with this move Pyatt will likely go back to wing for the moment.
