Yeah, I'm sure the Rangers made no attempt to sign JAM because they had already pegged a UFA camp invitee to take his place.

you mean its possible that jam decided to sign with a weaker team that would give him a spot in the nhl instead of signing here and being ahl depth? impossible. much more likely that slats and torts are stupid lol

The concept of free will is not well understood around here sometimes.

Yup but not intentionally, Dylan delivered a headshot on the play. Wasnt a dirty play by either or them, just hard old fashioned hockey. Hope Dylan is ok, I'm expecting Kyle Jean to face some retribution during training camp.

Not to be confused with his action star cousin Kyle Jean Claude Van Damme.

Did we ever get a final update on Dylan? Last I heard he was sort of ok but going to see a doctor to make sure everything was ok.

this kid was definitely the standout of the scrimmage i saw. i've seen his highlights and one full scrimmage and i'd honestly say i'm impressed. might be a fine 4th liner this, but will most likely be an AHL depth player for now. i think he could crack the 3rd line in the near future though, i like him a lot.

You understand that if a team offers a player a contract, the player doesn't have to sign it, right?

JAM has a hell of a better shot at cracking the Blue Jacket's lineup in the near future than he does at cracking the Rangers. It's no wonder why he chose to sign there.

I know that the team in Columbus is a natural disaster, but I thought they were Blue Jackets, not Avalanche...
On another note, JAM not signing with us was a little unfortunate but quite expected. He was offered a contract By us (apparently not The max deal he wanted though) and got better offer by Howson. And he probably felt he had better chance to quickly progress within that natural disaster of an organisation. Too bad in a sense as he might have been a valuable trade chip come the deadline, but not a real big deal either...

I saw the scrimmage after everyone else, and had seen all the positive reports, and after like the first 1/3 of the scrimmage I was about to go out in full steam and trash the kid. He had a bit of that Brodie Dupont/Dane Byers/Ethan Werek/Greg Moore look about him, IE the motor just did not seem to be there. These guys never makes it to the NHL if they can't get a move on on the ice. It don't matter how fast they can skate at top speed, it don't have to be pretty. But you need to have, or develop, a bit of natrual quickness to play in the National Hockey League. Like a Jed Ortmayer got that, but a Greg Moore does not. And in that sense, even in a player like Justin Soryal, who is way too top-heavy to skate well etc, you can atleast see that more direct skating style who gets him going atleast, while the Brodie Dupont types just fights against the law of physics much more.

And Kyle Jean is 22 y/o, and did play against mostly 18-19 y/o's.

But he definitely won me over some. He is big and strong and uses that to his advantage. But that won't win him a spot in the NHL. Ever. But he had like almost some Johan Franzen about him. He didn't accept that he was trapped in his big body and had players all around him and no option than just loosing the puck, instead he always tried some move or thought 2-3 plays ahead to make something out of the situation. That's no guarantee for him to make it to the NHL. But he could definitely be worth looking into.

That's some good Ola right there, I'll get behind everything you've said, plus, he's always been known as money in shootouts, FWIW.

It's worth getting facts wrong sometimes just to get a quality reply.
