They are going to bring up Nino and play him with Reasoner and Boulton from what I'm hearing
Exactly. This move is garbage to me. If you are bringing up someone young like Nino or Nelson to play, then you need to be giving them top 6 minutes, which requires a major shuffle of lines. Then the question begs why this wasn't done with Ullstrom in the lineup? So when someone like Nino comes up and plays 8 minutes a night and fails to produce a point over 2 weeks, we will be right back where we started: all questions, no answers. Half a year with Ullstrom and we still don't really know what we have -- except a kid with no confidence anymore.
Or are we just replacing Ullstrom with Boulton permanently? Which makes me want to puke.
I wouldn't be suprised if he comes back up by thursday, but wouldn't mind if he stays down for a stint...if he does stay down we have 1 extra roster spot.
any words on Joensuu or Carkner? I know Carkner is D but we did carry 8 D for the first few weeks of the season and that was before Vis got here. Last update I saw on Joensuu was 6 weeks ago and said he was out for another 5-7 weeks, but assume that does not include rehab so maybe it would be a lot longer than that.
