EZ on the Tostito love....like the guy but Sestito seems to always get under the Ranger's skin and play well against them. Like to see more of him to get a good gauge

it was a nice game but losing mez is going to be a problem, so is foster coming back?

my opinion however is that we are not getting enough offense from the defensive players, can they bring up lauridsen yet? since mez is out?

however, why didnt this team play like this since day 1 then? did the hartnell injury make this team better? that's what is fustrating me, they'll play great one game and they will play lously the next, i hope they keep this up and not fool us.

Bryz came up with the big saves we needed him to in the third period. That's why we won. He has easily been our best player overall so far.

Lauridsen over Foster doesn't solve that problem

Yes Sestito is not a defensively sound player, but Talbot is and Rinaldo can hold his own. They won't be shutting guys down with their defensive skills though, they will be shutting them down by bruising them up.
Same here, I like Sestito.

But Gustafsson over Foster may be the answer. He is back at pratice with the Phantoms apparently. Let him play a game in the AHL and if he still looks legit, call him up again...

He's thrown some devestating hits in his time here and I think it just provides an edge that is beneficial to the team. He's Rinaldo without the side show, IMO.
He's a guy other teams have to look over their shoulder for. You add enough guys that can throw hits and it makes other teams nervous.

I didn't know if he was on the Phantoms yet, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to our prospects. Forgot he's still that young.

I wonder what the three Stooges line (Shelley - Rinaldo - Sestito) would look like on the ice

How does it work with college guys? Can you bring them in whenever their season is over? If he decides he doesn't want to go back there next year, can they be brought in then or do they have to wait for the next season?

Do you mean could a drafted player, currently playing in the NCAA, join his NHL team at the end of this season? He could but he loses all NCAA eligibility.

OK. I figured he'd lose his eligibility, but I wasn't sure if there was any rules on when he could join. Say a player gets kick out of school in December for some reason, can he be brought in right away or does he have to wait for the college season to end?

If he got kicked off College Team X for a violation and was no longer part of that program? I don't see why he wouldn't be eligible to play immediately in the NHL if he was drafted.

I agree. I think Gus can be very good when he's playing with confidence and the right partner. Could help out the 2nd pp unit too since Mez is out.
