Belleville completed the sweep. They're moving on to the semis.

The same goes for Calgary. It looks like Helgesen is still out.

Rakell notched an assist in Plymouth's win. They're up 3-2.

It's not looking good for Kitchener. They're down 3-1 after two periods. Gibson has given up 3 goals on 23 shots so far. If they lose, they're out.

Gibson is heading to Norfolk or Anaheim (Probably) as they were beaten out tonight.

29 saves on 32 shots for Gibson. 3 goals (1 5on4, 1 5on3)

London netted a empty netter to finish the game 4-1.

I doubt he'll play as even a backup at either level this season. I think he'll practice with one of the teams, and take off to the WCs if he gets an invite.

Thats why I figure he will go to Anaheim to practice with NHL club.

Nobody is taking started away from Anderson right now, and Bobkov is a good backup.

Not to mention incase of injury/illness or whatever it would be nice to have a 3rd goalie with the team. I'd much rather put Gibson into a NHL game (if it ever came to that) then a guy who played in the ECHL 10 years ago.

Gibson should be on his way to Anaheim for sure. Working with Peters and taking shots from playoff-bound NHL players will do wonders for him. No reason to disrupt what's happening in Norfolk. Andersen seems to be in the zone anyway.

No points today, but it looks like Plymouth is going to advance to the next round.

I don't want to sound like a youth mongerer, but man, our future core is looking to be one of the strongest in the league now.

our prospect depth is ridiculous right now. And this draft is only going to make it that much stronger.

I really want to see us move some of our depth for pieces to fill holes on the roster. I want to see us try to win next year. We have a ton of depth obviously, so it's time for Murray to stop waiting around and start filling a hole by trading a couple guys. Obviously, there are prospects less untouchable then others. The future looks good, but Murray can speed things up like the Kings did for example when they traded for Mike Richards (not saying the Kings won the trade). I really hope he tries to win while Getzlaf is still on the right side of 30. I'd hate for him to wait around then find out that Getzlaf and Perry have begun declining. That would suck

The problem is that depth pieces don't usually get you anything except depth pieces. If Anaheim wants a big piece, they are going to need to move some significant assets.

Depends. You don't think Karlsson, DSP, Cramarossa, etc. could get us anything good? I consider those guys depth for us considering who's ahead of them in our prospect pool. I guess it just depends on who we consider depth. I don't consider those kinds of guys necessary to hang on to if we could potentially fill a hole on the roster to help speed up our cup pursuit

Not really, no.

Using your own example of Mike Richards, that cost Los Angeles Simmonds, Brayden Schenn(who was considered a top 5 prospect in the world), and a 2nd round pick. This, for a player that Philly wanted to get rid of.

Edit: That doesn't mean we can't get something for them, but if you want a significant piece you can't expect to get it giving up depth prospects. Even if a team wants to get rid of a high talent player, they are going to want a high talent return. Like a Grade A prospect, and top six forward.

It was bigger than that. Schenn was considered the best prospect in the league.

I was trying to be a little conservative on that part, but yeah. Schenn alone was a big, big piece.

And they got Simmonds. Damn what a trade for Philly! LA can always say they didn't lose because they got their damn cup....ugh

Yeah it was very much a win-win. LA gets their cup but there's no doubt I'd rather have Schenn and Simmonds if I'm the Flyers, especially going forward. The Carter trade was even better for the Flyers IMO.

Only on HF does someone say something like that. It was a big win for LA because of the cup, obviously, but even then, it was a good move for them. Schenn was considered on here to be one of the top prospects in the league, but I have a sense LA felt he was expendable, and it's shown somewhat. Simmonds didn't seem like much more than a third line type who could maybe fill in on line 2, and I remember being pretty amazed they couldn't get a first, but only a second out of LA. I remember thinking that Carter's return was arguably better, but perhaps not purely because that draft class wasn't that strong and Columbus didn't seem in line to pick up a huge piece.

In hindsight, it looks as if Philly did amazing on those deals, but really, a lot of their fans were pretty pissed at the situation at the time, and not solely because they traded two huge pieces from a good team. They've certainly made the most of those deals since.

According to Lombardi he wasn't looking to move Schenn; he was pretty pissed at the prior TD that GMs kept asking for Schenn in every trade. It was just that landing Richards was an opportunity that they couldn't pass up, and he felt the rest of the team had developed to the point that they could afford to make that kind of move.

I totally thought I included them. Especially Wagner. Like I specifically remember giving his name some thought as a 2010 steal.

I think the point of having depth in the system is you know many of them will likely not amount to much, or be used in trades, but all it takes is a couple to make a major difference. Honestly our forward depth is extremely good, and so is the goaltending. Wouldn't mind us going D heavy in the upcoming draft

We went D heavy in the last draft. I don't think we need to do it again.

Looks like Helgesen is still MIA. No idea what the problem is. I assume it's an injury.

Is that the rankings that had us at 2nd?
