He looked very raw here. I wasn't that impressed. Perhaps he does better on bigger ice. He needs to get over here and start adjusting ASAP for me to have any real hope for him.

Chris Mueller scored his 29th goal tonight in a big win at Charlotte. That is the most by an Admiral since Rich Peverly a few years ago.

Atte Engren was in goal for the 4-2 win while Jeremy Smith served his one game suspension from Sunday's brawl with Rockford.

He will play in North America next year either way. The Swedish clause ends after this season. He'll either be a Pred or and Ad next year, hopefully a Pred.

I'd rather him be an Ad for a while, get used to NA ice. Let Blum and Ellis try for more playing time up here if we have a spot for them.

Austin Watson had a hell of a night last night scoring 2G and an assist.

Shalla was a -3 in the 5-2 loss.

Charles Olivier-Roussell had a good game with 2 assists in the ST. John's win.

Brent Andrews -2 in a loss.

He's made himself a career in mainly Sweden playing for Brynas in the SEL. I believe they are currently in the championship series.

Cam Reid is worthless in the WHL 1G 0A in playoffs

Josh Shalla is good, 3G 8A in 9 games

Charles Olivier-Roussell is good #2 defenseman in scoring 2G 8A in 7 games

Brent Andrews 1G 1A 7 Games

As expected, Helsinki Jokerit announced Joonas Rask today for their next season's squad.

Defenseman Victor Bartley is driving to Nashville and will arrive tonight. I assume that he will be a Black Ace.

Two-way defenseman. Great skater, was trusted by both Muller and Herbers this season to play in the last minute whether the team was up a goal or needing one to tie it up. Good offensive instincts, owns a good shot from the point.

Add shot blocking extraordinaire to this. A couple games this year he had around 10 blocked shots.

A bunch of our defenseman get injured. It's game 7, and we have to play one of Blum or Bartley. Who do you put in?

Bartley. He has more upside on offense but can get back on D due to better footspeed than Blum has. He knows when and how to pinch. Like AF24 said, he can block shots. I expect him to be in the NHL after next season, maybe by the end of next season. Blum has improved in recent weeks, but Bartley has a better game.

That is too bad. Does Chet Pickard replace him in Milwaukee or another player?

Blum without a doubt. You can talk upside all you want with Bartly, you need someone who has experience and is familiar with the system. If there is an injury, you need someone to come in, and perform, not perform eventually.

If this was a regular season game, I'd probably say Bartly.

Quick question for Preds fans. What's going on with Colin Wilson. I saw that he played in 68 games for you guys this season, but was not on the playoff roster. Was he hurt, or just scratched? I know you guys have high hopes for him, and I hope he turns into that number one center for you guys.

Let me start by saying that I am in Milwaukee, not Nashville. Trotz is a defense first style coach. Wilson has good offensive skills as he displayed at BU, but has been a defensive liability. You can argue that he can't or won't play defense. He did play four games in the playoffs for Nashville, scoring one goal. He defensive skills looked improved. I think his best place is on the first or second lines. Trotz has this tendency to put guys like Wilson on the third or fourth line. Why he does this with offensive players is subject to debate.
