Right now this is our depth:

Havlat - Thornton - Burns
Marleau - Couture - Wingels
Galiardi - Pavelski - Sheppard
Desjardins - Gomez - Burish
Kennedy, Tarasov, Kearns

Ick.
Theoretically, DW can sign Nieto to an NHL ELC at any moment, correct?

I was definitely 100% serious about Nieto.

Funny that you've bemoaned Clowe all season and are now horrified that he got some draft picks as a pending UFA. I don't even....

And as others have mentioned, it would burn an ELC year.

Do you really want to burn a year of his ELC this season?

Of course Nieto would sign without thinking. DW would be the one to hestitate. Wasting an ELC on a very partial season probably isn't worth it.

Given how the team is playing now, yes. We can rebuild and make a run for it at the same time:

Havlat-Thornton-Burns
Marleau-Couture-Wingels
Nieto-Pavs-Sheppard
Galiardi-Gomez-Desjardins

Call me crazy (And you will), but I wouldn't mind this being the forward lineup for the playoffs. I'm also anxious to see Nieto in SAN JOSE Teal.

I don't want to waste a year of Nieto's ELC.

He can earn a spot next year.

According to capgeek, his ELC starts next year. No Nieto in SJ for this season.

Yeah, he's on an ATO right now. They could sign him to an ELC and burn a year though.

No, but he did say he's planning to finish his classes over the next year or two.

Love Nieto, but he's not a potential top line forward. Look at his college numbers and compare them to guys like Heatley and Vanek.

In fairness, Heatley and Vanek were superstar top-5 picks. But I do get your point.

To me Nieto's potential is basically Michalek, with less injuries hopefully.

Probably not but nearly averaging a ppg career wise in NCAA isn't easy to do.

Didn't watch too much of Nieto, but I don't think he's slow?
