Brandon Segal Called Up (sent back to the Whale 1/20)

Not sure why no one is reporting this one.

According to the AHL Transactions page, Brandon Segal has been called up to the Rangers.

Perhaps Bickel/Gilroy won't be dressing as the 12th forward on opening night after all. Interesting that they went with Segal, and not Newbury.

I'd like to see what Segal can do in our bottom-six.

Well isn't that special.

I guess its the kind of thing we'd expect, whoever filled in for Asham wasn't going to log a boatload of minutes.

He'll be here for opening night while Asham is serving the remainder of his suspension and nothing more.

This is meh. He won't stick this time but good for him. If he does well maybe he can be a viable replacement for Asham/Rupp in a year or two?

Asham's replacement for game 1. Nothing more, nothing less.

In a few years when I'm taking a sporcle quiz and Im missing one person from the opening night roster, this move will upset me.

I think it's pretty clear that the org was not overly impressed with Haley.

On an unrelated note Segal is a dead ringer for Dane Cook.

Don't love the idea of suspensions carrying across 9 calender months.

I could see a major suspension, say more than 10 games, but having the last game of 4 served this much later just seems kind of nit-picky.

I don't understand why the PA appeals these. They're protecting the guy who headshotted Hossa, not they guy who was hurt.

Oh well, it would be better if Torres was out of the league forever.

Asham gets a bit lucky to still dress in the blue sweater for the home opening introductions.

It's going to be a good experience for him and a "carrot" moving forward...

My guess is that the Rangers want Haley to get more comfortable in the system before bringing him up. Segal has been decent in the AHL this year and has more experience.

bold says it all, that and that they don't figure Haley's ready.

Kid gets a chance. He impresses torts for one game and maybe he gets called up again. He's looked good for the whale.

This thread also exceeds IMO the "meh" limit in response to a post.

so did this dude play RW on the 4th line today? I rather have him then a Dman in Bickel on RW

btw Segal is almost 30 with NHL experience and would be happy to sit around as a spare and get an NHL paycheck, so its a good move to bring up a guy like this. IF they need a 3rd liner then they likely go another route like Kolarik

I would sooner see Steve MacIntyre dropping against some of them Bruin punks like Thornton and Lucic . I don't see us having anybody to match against Lucic or Carkner/NYI . Hopefully the King does not get bowled over like Miller got last season . Our season could be ended pretty darn quick . Having a heavyweight for the short season would have been a good idea and Rupp/AA/Bickle are not heavyweights . Carkner will probably hurt at least one of our guys before this season ends .

You know who worries about this **** instead of the game?

Unsuccessful teams.

As far as I'm concerned...Carkner was responsible for us not getting out of the East . That is how I see it .
