You never know. Granted we have much better defensive depth now than we did, but that was the case with Clitsome and Roy as well. They suddenly got good looks in Columbus after being up and down (mostly down).

They now have won six in a row and are sitting on top of the eastern conference. Let's hope that the Jackets don't call up a goalie and send Mason down. That would be a disaster for this team. York, Daintain and Mc Ilhenney are doing a fantastic job.

If we can package him with a pick for a scoring winger, I'm all for it. For the record, I like the guy.

Well, Chaput now with 12 points, +6 in 10 January games. He had just 6 AHL points in 2012. Looks like a proper developement.

This makes me so excited for next season, with proper training camps and preseason the players who deserve to be on the team will be. Also Murray, Jenner and 3 new faces will be there as well.

I know interest in Spfld has died down the past couple of weeks but I thought I'd check in and comment on some things I've seen on here lately.

To all the people that have been suggesting that JAM get called up, mind your own business. No, just kidding. In all seriousness though, he needs some time down here to work on his discipline a little bit but I could see him making a great impression in camp next year. Optimistically with the right linemates he probably gives you a Brad Marchand type player; small, scrappy and could pick up about 50 points.

Chaput has been coming along very nicely since the callups and they have him between two veteran(ish) wings in Craig and Kubalik. I think he will spend next year with us but if his development keeps progressing he could see NHL time.

On Savard, I know Katy will disagree with me but if he's not going to see the ice at all please send him back. Our 3rd pairing has been pretty terrible lately and the revolving door isn't working.

As far as York goes, you can have him, I'm on edge every gave he's in net. He gives up so many rebounds, he's often out of position or just lays on the ice after making the first save.

Nobody seems to mention Drazenovic but this kid has taken the team on his back (with JAM) since the callups, I'm surprised he's so far under the radar. Guess he falls into that "career AHLer" trap.

Take good care of Cam, he's the most exciting player we've seen in the past 10 years and I hope he can bring you as much pleasure as he has brought us.

Drazzy, Jam, Chaput, Erixon, Savard, and even Kuby for a lil bit I am really high on for the future...i hope Jenner spends next year there unless he's overly ready to make the big club....

congrats on Jam and Erixon for being voted starters for the ASG!!!!

I know they want lots of teams represented at the All-Star game but Springfield should have more players there. There are defensemen invited from other teams with stats like 9 points and +4 plus/minus, 14 points and -12, 18 points and -6...those are All-Stars?

Some places have him higher than that, some lower, some alot lower. It's all over the map. But he really is that good.

Erixon has great puck moving ability and could become one of the trendy new point scoring, bad +/- defensemen. Right now though he's really got to work more on his coverage and less on his belly-flopping.

More than likely a 3-4 defenseman. But top 2 isn't impossible

Those rankings are based off potential. He has potential to be a top pairing guy, or elite as you say. But more than likely he's just a good defenseman.

Welcome to the board! Nice to see another Springfield voice here.

As for Savard, I really do not want him here at all. I understand it's frustrating to have him sit in Columbus, but at least he's not turning the puck over that way. I think the Falcons should have kept Cullity up and sent down Weber. There are cracks in his game showing. Wish Ruth could go to Evansville as well, but he's a righty and Cullity a lefty.

Nick Drazenovic has 18(6+12) points in the last 10 games. Should be next in line for offensive call up. Goloubef picked up scoring from the blue line. They also fight a lot recently.
After the last night's bloody win the Falcons are in sole possession of first place in the entire AHL. They've lost JAM, Cam. Calvert, Moore, Erixon, Savard, now Holden, but still keep winning. Great place to learn how to win for kids.

Great week-end for the Falcons...hope they can keep winning and maybe the Blue Jackets should watch video from the farm team's games to see what you can accomplish with some hard work and some heart!

I hate to see all of these call-ups already, but it seems that the CBJ are always going to be plagued by the injury bug. What, 5 guys down already? Really does speak well for our depth, though, since the Falcons thus far haven't missed a beat.

Keep it up, and hopefully we get healthier and get some guys back down there for the remainder of the season.

Moore goes down, Goloubef comes up. Man the Falcons are getting gutted. JAM, Calvert, Cam, Moore, Erixon, Savard, Holden, and now Goloubef.

While that sucks for the Falcons and I would really like them to continue success, it finally says something about our depth. I realize these guys aren't seasoned NHL vets or maybe even ready for full time duty, however, they are solid prospects that appear ready for spot duty. It's good to know that we have capable fill ins.

Now if only we could get some high end forwards to tilt the offense downhill

It's a far cry from when we'd see a defenseman go down and know that the next plane from Syracuse was going to have either Aaron Johnson or Derrick Walser on it.
