Gotta feel bad for Cormier.

He had basically made the team last year (he even went on the team building trips) until they claimed MacLean off waivers. Now he's in the AHL and is probably 3rd in line to get called up - behind Machacek and Macenauer, ahead of Jaffray, Maxwell and Klingberg.

You can see his game-by-game stats here:

he's had a good run the last two games and is starting to get back into form after a long absence

Yep,

It's been slow, but he seems to be getting back into form

I know that the hockey news, among others I assume, not too long ago had Cormier listed as the organization's top prospect (prior to drafting Scheifele) Now it seems he's a bit of a forgotten man. But circumstances and perceptions of prospects change frequently. Last year everyone wanted to talk about Telegin as the big up and comer in the organization.

I hate to say it but I think Telegin has the best shot at making it, but its a long shot IMO

Not sure about the guy I saw at the Pens/Jets game with a Cormier Jets jersey. Don't know if we'll ever see him...

Don't know about that... I have a feeling that he'll have just a good of chance as many other gunning for the 4th line next season.

Patrice Cormier should be a very good 4th line centre. The problem is he may be talented enough to be a very good 3rd line centre.

I don't get feeling bad or sorry for a guy. Pro hockey is their chosen profession. There are approx 700 roster spots at the top level (NHL) and many X's that amount at other levels in N.A. and around the world. There literally 1000's of hard luck stories. To get paid to play hockey you need to slot in somewhere.

In terms of Cormier he is just on the outside of the top level and has had a shot at that level and didn't stick. His current production does not warrant another shot at this time, especially with a deeper Jets lineup. I wouldn't be surprised if he was part of a trade package somewhere down the line to a team that thought he could play a role.

I really hope Cormier can figure it out and put it all together for himself. I'd love to see him make the Jets one day (soon would be great) as a mean, physical, pest who is willing to drop the gloves. He's got good size for the role too. I'd love to see him really embrace that pest/grinder role and plant himself on the 4th line on Slater's wing.

I'm not saying I want a goon, but I do love guys who can play an extremely physical game and get under the opposing teams skin. The kind of guys you absolutely hate to play against, dread playing against because you just know how much of a pain in the ass they are, but you love them on your team because they can play the game honest and not hurt the team.

In a perfect world for me, we see Anthony Peluso engrave himself in that role as well. Perhaps next season.

Cormier - Slater - Peluso
