Wat.

Like a tryout or something?
My guess is so they can send Gudas back down to Syracuse for their playoff run. Our season is over.

He allready signed for the next 2 seasons in Hamburg, though i don't think that would be much of a hindrance if the Lightning really wanted him

I think it's to allow Gudas to go down as well. But if he can play well, he could potentially earn an extension?

Fun fact: "Mathieu Roy" is French for "Warm Body"

Making sure we get one of the top 3 in the draft.

Well yeah, but that was because one of our goaltenders went down. I think. If I remember correctly. What the hell is Roy doing here for what amounts to 3 games? I think either Gudas will be sent down, or it's like a mini tryout or something, see if we can use him.

Its because Gudas is going down this weekend with Panik. Don't you guys look at the clear day rosters? C'mon now.

My question is who sits in Syracuse? We have a glut of D down there now. Can Witkowski be sent to the ECHL?

He could but I think its unlikely. I don't know who i'd go with, to be honest. Obviously Gudas and Barberio, Korobov... Sustr? Witkowski and... Lee?

I'm actually really baffled by this blueline. How it plays out will be very interesting.

If Sustrs stats are any indication, he will play I think. But the 2 last spots will be though to get. But my bet is on Taormina and Cote. Those 6 (Gudas, Barberio, Korobov, Taormina, Sustr and Cote) are the guys that played all games while being in Syracuse.
But the blueline will be great, doesn't care who they line up, at least 7 or 8 of their Dmen are capable top4 AHL defenders
What about Lee to the ECHL?

Lee will almost definitely be playing. Otherwise, they would have just called up Lee and sent down Gudas. This signing was to allow Lee to stay and Mikkelson to heal up from injuries.

I'm going to guess on this but I would say
Cote Barbs
Korobov Gudas
Taormina Lee

This is a guess. Korobov and Gudas played really well when paired together. Sustr has produced but he hasn't quite caught up with the speed of the game at this level which is understandable. You still have Nightingale, Witkowski and Sergeev. Mikkelson and Oberg could be available if we go on a run. I guess the vet rule could be a factor but we won't be hurting on D depth.

You could make a case for several guys, but I think it'll look something like this:

Korobov-Gudas
Barberio-Cote
Taormina-______

Doubt the top 2 pairings change.
