Upshall

I've liked this guy a lot for a few years now. Just curious if you al think that next season is going to the time he is finally given a roll that he can shine in?

I dont think he has to wait. He seems to have played his way on to the team this year.

Every game he has played this year, he's grinded and worked his *** off.

Upshall is one of the few pred players right now (along with vokoun and smithson) that's NOT on my s$%t list. He's been a solid player and has hustled non-stop every shift.

He's perhaps up for the rest of the year unless someone gets really hot. When combined with Raddy, a couple of the wings MUST roll before next year! If someone steps it up a notch this last stretch and the playoffs, Raddy may begin play at the AHL level next year. Not much question Upshall will be on the Preds roster next year IMO.

I agree totally, but will Trotz and company. That is the question.

I really think when Upshall comes back we will see Tootoo moved off the first line and back to the fourth line. Scottie isn't as big of a spark plug as Jordin is, but he still hits often. He also drives to the net like mad and has better hands than Jordin. Tootoo has actually been exceptional positionally in the offensive zone, and his forecheck has really hurt other teams....When this lineup is healthy, it may be time to roll out our 4th line more than 5 minutes or so a game (a Hordy - Johnson - Tootoo line would have tons of speed, insert a Nichol in there and nothing is lost either).

Ya I would definately put Ups on the first above Jordin; when is Walker slated to return? What happens to either one of these guys when Walks returns.

Does Trotz not like him? I think Upshall is at the stage in his career where if he can't earn a consistent role with the team he's going to waste away in the minors and it'll ruin him.

He really needs to step up and take advantage of his chance.

Trotz likes him fine, he's on the team and getting good ice time when he's healthy, right now, he's out with an injury.
