Brule may just end up being more effective down in Phoenix. You never really know what dressing room is required for a particular player. I think Brule needs a perfect storm of sound veterans influencing him consistently. Guys like Doan, Whitney, that are consumate players and team first guys.

Pretty clear that Columbus didn't have the right stuff to get anything out of Brule and we didn't either. My take is that Brule was coddled here and expectations weren't consistently high. I think he just kind of floated through here and people tended to see him as a space cadet. I actually think the latter being one of the reasons he's gone.
"Oh, you burned yourself making waffles and missed 3 games in OKC." Nice story Gilbert, jebus, back in the strange box with you. Pretty sure the team just regarded him as a liability right now anywhere they put him.

No polite way to say this, so I may as well just spit it out. The guy is the org **** up. The guy in the company that ends up doing enough strange **** that people don't and won't take him seriously and that may even be the butt of inner jokes.

Just speculation but none of have any idea how bad this got in general. There was more than enough strange that leaked out and as typical we only here the tip of the iceberg of what actually went on.

I'd put Belanger on the 4th and ride him dead on the pk. He just wrecks any offensive chances, for both sides.

Have Lander center a line with MPS and put anyone else on the wing. Even hordichuk, sure. That will give them the opportunity to double shift Hall (I'm sure MPS wouldn't mind playing RW).

Whatever the coaches see in this pairing, it hasn't worked.

Might have something to do with getting zero return for any of them, after giving up assets to acquire them in the first place. Could be part of the reason we are where we are. Not only do the players management brought in, not work out, but we lose them for nothing and have to pay half the salary for the competition.

That's hardly a recipe for success.

They can ask Sheldon for a refund. And ask the islanders for Smyth

Smid has impressed him the most this year how competitive he has been

Injuries have forced him to bring up Petry , Teubert , etc. before they wanted

Has not let the coaching staff off the hook , with the recent injuries , expects the team to still compete

IDK something along those lines

we didnt give up assets.. we acquired assets in Brule and Nilsson. NYI gave up 3 solid assets for 2 months of Smyth. Imagine the board if that was us.
Brule for a struggling Torres and cap room for Souray were hardly anything we should worry about.

addition by subtraction is recipe for success. Staios, Souray, Moreau, Pisani, Nilsson etc did not belong here anymore and losing them for nothing is still a positive for the organization. When the club is healthy, losing Peckham for nothing would also make us a better team.

The interesting thing I took was that the plan they have for Pitlick and Hamilton is 2-3 year of AHL duty.

Torres and Smyth arent assets?

In what world would that be?

Unfortunately unless you are a few teams that's just not possible. When you are a feeder team in any sport this is what happens.

Yeah, Rajala counts.

We were at 49 contracts with Marincin sliding.

With Brule gone and Motin's contract terminated, we're at 47 now, I think.

No I don't but this is what we got, unless something comes down the pipeline......

All this talk about Parise, he is just as small as our current forwards.

Need to get a prototypical Big Center (Getzlaf or Staal) both teams are struggling, but there is no way they move those two.

Not too upset that Brule was claimed. Most likely the Oilers wouldn't have qualified him for next season and we would have lost him for nothing anyways.

He didn't have a good year last year and he is just average in the minors this year.

This is true, but not every team seem to be cursed like the Oil. Every year you can count on a mass exodus from OKC to EDM, and this is only the second season and I feel like it's a fair assumption. Don't know why they have such bad breaks when it comes to injuries.

The only good news for OKC is that they managed to get ahead of the pack before the Oil started dropping like flies. They put themselves in a position that the second half of the season might not depend on a heroic run with a subpar line-up like last season, but it's way too early for me to talk about that because a lot can change in 30-40 games.

Although MPS, Lander and Belanger is a decent line it's not what MPS should be used for at this point. Maybe later in the year when he's gotten his touch back.
Bingo. In the meantime playing with a guy like Smyth would be welcomed.

I'm really hoping that they give Paajarvi a chance on the 1/2 wall instead of the point.

Gagner-Jones-Paajarvi
Petry-Belanger

I swear if Belanger and Horcoff are still getting PP time over Paajarvi next game, I'm officially joining the fire Renney bandwagon.
We'll see, Renney needs to read the player correctly and try to give him a boost in confidence.

No we don't need him up here Eager could've been bumped up a line and Petrell could've played on the 4th line.
