What do we have to lose to try him?
Couldn't agree more.

If you play him, don't play him on the 4th line. If he isn't put into a position where he can succeed I'd rather him in the press box.

He has been with the Marlies all season. Practicing with the team for a week or two and playing 9-10 minutes on the 4th line is a good change of pace and learning opportunity. He also makes almost 10x as much money during this time as well. This is a good experience for the kid.

Seemed to work ok for Getzlaf and Perry during the Ducks playoff run. Jus sayin.

Is it ideal, ofcourse not, but it's not a ridiculous proposition as some make it out to be.

The year before they won the cup Getz and Perry played 4th line minutes.

Randy was on the radio a couple weeks ago and discussed this

This market isn't conductive to that. Put the kid in a position to succeed.

Agreed. Everyone earns their stripes slowly and steadily.

So depending on what type of market you conduct business in, it should change your philosophy on how to run a team?



Carlyle will do what he thinks is best for the team right now regardless of what market he's in.

I'd love to see Colborne get some time. Even if it is with Orr and McLaren. They can free up some space for him with a good forecheck. It seemed to help Kadri a bit when Orr was banging for him and Mac.

I'd say our market is a huge mix of patient and impatient. With so many vocal, varying opinions there is no need to consider our opinion when developing depth forwards. Goalies can be different, as they aren't one of 12 at their position.

We need to see what we have...

Either Grabo or Bozak will be gone soon,it is inevitable, unless the playoffs say otherwise.
