The Good: Machacek is a very hard-working player with a very desirable physical game. His work ethic translates to moderate defensive value as he has what one NHL source calls a "never quit attitude" on the ice and stays with his checks well.

Bad: Machacek's skating is simply okay, as while he has decent agility, his top gear is below average. He doesn't look awful at any one thing, but his offensive creativity and decision-making also are slightly below average.
About par with what I'd think although I think his offense is good for a 4th liner






Personally if I was GM I would of sent down Peluso, Maceneaur and Redmond (give Redmond some leadership time w/ #1 callup instead of #7 time), or if I though Scheifele wasn't ready keep Peluso for bruiser in games where it may be needed (ex: second game of back-to-backs against Washington)...

The jets scouting staff must be very high on Wright as I just checked Cap geek and he is signed to a $650 k 1 way contract next year...... this year he is on a two way contract with a 75 K salary in the AHL......... Lets hope he is not next years Gagnon

All I can say that it does this old guy good to see all this arguing over the relative merits of 4th line/marginal players. Hockey is SO TOTALLY BACK!!

Thanks Garret for digging those up.

End of the first clip - check out the hit he put on Salvador? Holy crap - right at the Devils bench (so he was warned he was coming), and take a look at when Salvador lowers his shoulder into Wright - and gets exploded.

Salvador = big dude...Solid!

Doesn't matter at all, except to me. Nice to see any Saskatchewan guy play for my favourite team. Nothing more, nothing less.

Can't wait for tomorrow.

I have no problem with this move.

We give up no assets and is still young with potential.

Why send Redmond back down. From all reports he has been the caps best d-man this year, and he had a good camp. At age 24 he is getting close to now or never time and deserves his shot if he has earned it.

good point... it's just I guess not super excited about him being a #7 yet when he's mostly had a 1.5 years of AHL 2nd pairing... but as Truck pointed out it changes when Bogo gets back

This exactly!!!! The organization is obviously lacking a little in quality forwards down on the farm. Bringing in a couple of young guys like this only increases the quality of competition.

I'll say this, I was hoping Machacek would make this team, but I too heard the reports earlier in the season that he was not having a very good year and if he came into this camp feeling entitled because of what he did last year then look no further to understand why he was sent back down.

I don't care if a guy is a 1st line player, 4th line player or a depth defenseman, I'd expect him to be out there busting his butt.

Maybe now Spencer is going to realize, if he wants to make this team (or any NHL team) he's going to have to earn it nightly and not rest on his accomplishments from a season ago.

Just maybe, next season we'll see Machacek alongside Wright and Peluso. All young enough with some upside.

Who knows, maybe Machacek is even recalled by the end of next week because I fully expect Scheif to be returned to Barrie.

On a side note, I would not have minded the JETS picking up Brian Strait but NYI beat us to him. Strait is really underrated and solid defensively, but if Redmond can limit his mistakes and give us some solid minutes, then it doesn't really matter.
