I beleive the DG discusses this with the coach on who he wants to call up. That is actually the coaches job. But obviously the DG has last word and makes the call.

Maybe they'll move Moen onto an actual "3rd" line. Energy and defense.

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta
Cole - Eller - Kostitsyn
Moen - Nokelainen - Blunden
Darche - Desharnais - Palushaj

Or I guess we could go with;

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta
Moen - Eller - Kostitsyn
Darche - Nokelainen - Blunden
Cole - Desharnais - Palushaj

I'd be fine with either of those. I do NOT want to see;

Darche - Nokelainen - Palushaj

Moen is our leading goal scorer...

Your boy Darche needs to GTFO

I know Moen is our leading scorer... I'm not stupid. But first of all, do you really think that's going to last? Do you really think Chris Kelly is going to be one of Boston's top scorers come years end? There are plenty examples league wide of guys on hot starts. Kent Huskins.. is he really going to finish the year with 50-60 points? Seriously?

I think Moen on a defensive/energy line that gets good ice-time would help because they would wear down the other teams.

But I am also open to keeping him on a scoring line with Eller & Kostitsyn.

Darche has as many goals as Mr. $4.5M this year. And our Captain.

No doubt

It seemingly is as hard to bring in a crease clearing d-man as it is a 40 goal guy lol

I would love to be able to have a few guys who are going to make the opposition pay the rent... I have seen to many guys with size, just have a hey day against us.

The problem with your lines, as I see it, is that Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta are an ineffective combination. I don't know where the blame lies but they just don't work together. I am far happier with the Moen - Eller - Kostitsyn line and wouldn't mess too much with it right now

Yep, I would too. Our lone physical defenseman is Emelin and he is still learning the ropes in the NHL. I hope Martin doesn't forget about him

I believe in watching that 24/7 Pens Cap show, the GM made the call as to the players being called up / sent down, yea the GM has a meeting with the coach to get his input in terms of how players played, but its the GM's decision.

If PG had to ask JM, and consult with BG and whoever else, taht would be too many cooks in the kitchen.

I agree it doesn't work well. What else could you go with?

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Palushaj
Cole - Desharnais - Gionta

In English, it's called a GM, by the way. Not a DG.

Max Pacioretty was supposed to be hurt, people would have been beyond pissed off if the Habs had not recalled anyone and would've been short one forward for the game had Max been unable to play. Can you imagine? PG can't even do his job right! Now we're stuck with Emelin at forward because that moron can't manage a team!

Palushaj is the closest player to the NHL on the Bulldogs. I'm sure he was disappointed he didn't get to play, but at the same time, I'm sure he's very happy he's the one who gets called up.

Palushaj also has done a lot in the AHL already. So calling him back and forth like this isn't messing with his development as much as it would be with DeSimone or Dumont or whoever (except maybe Wilsie, but who wants him called up?).

I once thought Palushaj could be a decent 3rd liner, but there's actually no room for him in an offensive role and that's the only role he can play. Just like the guy he was traded for, he would probably mildly succeed elsewhere given enough time and space.

Do not compare Kadri and Palushaj. They are not in the same "league'' skill wise.


At some point this year, Habs gonna trade him for spare parts or picks like they have done with Maxwell, Lapierre or O'Byrne.


He is not in the Habs' plans for the future.

If any of our top-6 players get hurt, we'll be happy to have him. Then it will be his chance to make that player expandable.

He was only called up if Pacs couldn't go.

Henry is too limited for a regular shift, as is Schultz right now, and Conboy would run around like a headless chicken, until he'd get destroyed by Thornton, Lucic or Chara... IF there was a need for a guy from Hamilton, I'd prefer a guy like Dumont, would bring energy and could still be able to play correctly...

I totally agree with Dumont, we need an energy guy like him!

Too bad Dumont doesn't have the size of Blunden.

When are we gonna get a 4th line forward with grit and size + some (pugilistic) skills ?

I am really feeling bad about tonight. I am sure the Bruins gonna try to injure some of our players.

Yeah I think so too, and again the refs won't do anything...
