If he just storms out to the KHL mid-season, I won't even blame him.
Yup. From a scratch to a forward, or maybe scratched again. But you can't teach an old dog new tricks, and Jacques ****ing Martin has not got a ****ing clue how to work with younger players.

Actually I think Martin might consider sending Gill in front of the net on the powerplay...

So they're actually seriously considering using Emelin as a forward? Is this real life?

Not possible.

DeSimone signed a one-year, two-way American Hockey League / ECHL contract.

I'm sure Markov would be better on the draw than most of our centermen...

Remember, Markov once played center in the RSL. Perhaps can he play center again and be better than Gomez or Eller, maybe even Plekanec.

Just like Kaberle last year where the Leafs contemplated having him center Kessel's line.

Oddly enough Scotty Bowman occasionally and successfully used Robinson, Lapointe and Savard as forwards on power plays. Different however from a regular shift....

This is one of the signs of a coach in his final days. Hopefully someone snaps him out of it and he calls up Dumont or something from Hamilton.

If they go that route it would probably be Weber up front and Emelin on defense.

Martin took a good long look at Brian Willsie during the preseason, maybe him.

This. I expect Palushaj to get the call today or tomorrow.

If not, then this:

I remember we once have 4 defensemen on the ice at the same time. I think it was in the Carbo era, and there was a picture of the 4 of them chasing a player on on a breakaway haha. Does anyone remember that? One of the D was probably Streit, who was the other one at forward?
