Let's see him play a Shift before we go any further with these.

Good call. In the meanwhile, I will put a Tab on this thread, so that when what you wrote happens I will remember to Enter the conversation again.

Hopefully Alt can improve in the AHL. Had a down year but there is still time for him to turn his game around. They seemed to like him enough to sign him.

Yeah, I'm really hoping he can make it eventually, as well. And in the Back Space of his mind, I'm sure he's thinking the same thing.

The kid has all the tools, it seemed like something was off mentally this year. For the first time I heard today that he may have been dealing with some off-ice stuff this season, which would make sense.

He was really great last year as a sophomore, possibly even the Gophers best all around defenseman. He can really play when he's on and it wouldn't surprise me if he were able to crack an NHL lineup.

I was looking around on twitter for reports on Alt. Apparently he had no interest in signing with Carolina. Many think that's why he was possibly traded here with Boucher.

I think if you Insert him on the bottom pairing, you could probably get a idea of his level. I wonder if he is a puck mover or a stay at Home type.

I really have no idea, and perhaps someone else can chip in, but I was really hoping he would Escape premature pigeonholing.

She is usually very good with Phantoms related stuff, but this could just be the team finalizing the contract and trying to keep it hush hush until it's final.

It might be because they're trying to get him on an ATO first

Now its confirmed again:

Last night, I was told the Flyers had not signed Alt. Today, I'm told they have. So he will likely be here soon.

Plus it seems like an ATO like you said.

Rosehill also isn't a defenseman. He's a 4th line puncher.

Maybe the Flyers realized they had to control Alt before they he could be deleted.

In the spirit of previous posts...

you hope someone can help develop him though i wouldn't hold my breath based on past history. i really would have rather seen lauridesen stay in the ahl this year. even next year rather see him spend top minutes on the top pairing then struggle on the bototm pair in the nhl. hope they dont try to rush this kid

does eric desjardan still help out on occasion?

They're related, cool, Alt was LT for the Chiefs when I became a fan back in the day

Prettymuch this. The guy was a very raw prospect when the Canes drafted him and remained so through as much of his college career as I followed. Biggest reason he was thrown in on the Boosh deal is that he was having a rather horrid first half of the season with the Gophers and was seemingly stagnant developmentally, if not regressed from the prior season where he was a bit of a rock for U of M. Hope he works out for you guys as his athleticism is phenomenal and with that size he could be a solid NHL defender.
